We finally know who General Hospital favorite Kelly Monaco (Sam) will be hitting the ballroom floor with when the Dancing with the Stars All-Stars Edition competition begins on ABC on September 24th!

As On-Air On-Soaps readers know, Monaco revealed to us in our recent interview that she did not want to tip the scales as to put our her preferences publicly for a partner.  However, today on Good Morning America the DWTS All-Star pairings were announced to the American public for the first time!

And so for Monaco,  she was paired with Val Chmerkovskiy, the younger brother of Maksim Chmerkovskiy.  Maksim got teamed with Kirstie Alley! Now here are the other pairings for the couple that could win the biggest battle ever for the Mirror Ball Trophy!  Dancing together will be:  Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke, Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson, Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, Bristol Palin and Mark Ballas,  Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff,  Helio Castroneves and Chelsie Hightower, Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough, Pamela Anderson and Tristan MacManus.

One more dancer will be paired with the “Viewers Choice” winner where fans will determine who the final All-Star cast member will be.  The three celebrities vying to fill the 13th spot on the cast are Sabrina Bryan, Carson Kressley and Kyle Massey.  Fans can vote for their favorite “Viewers’ Choice: All-Star” until Friday, August 24 at 12:00 p.m., PT, to determine which of the three celebrities will be named the final All-Star contestant. Once voting has closed, the final cast member and his/her professional dance partner will be announced live on Good Morning America on Monday, August 27.

So Kelly Monaco fans, what do you think of the selection of her partner Val?  Do you think on paper the duo could have the winning spark and combo?  Let us know your thoughts! And don’t forget to tune-in and vote for Kelly throughout the competition! And after the jump, watch the announcement of the dance pairings on GMA!

    I just groaned when I heard Bristol was counted in as a “all-star” or champion… really did not enjoy any evening she was dancing, if you can call it dancing. What she excelled in was getting call in votes I would think because of who her mom is, not because she was a great dancer, which is how I and many others vote. I wish when it’s closer to the end that the judges points counted more than call in votes to weed out the chance that someone who is a great dancer gets voted out simply because someone else has a built in network of people prompted to vote – there were several other dance couples that should have had ms bristol’s spot in the finals. just made me ill that she got their spot.

    I didn’t catch kelly in the first DWTS – but wasn’t there a wardrobe malfunction? te he he I think Derek would have been a great partner for her this time around – more to her height and they would have made a great looking couple!

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
