One Life to Live and High School Musical fans get ready as Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King)  is set to make his debut in the new season of Dancing with the Stars which kicks-off tomorrow night, Monday September 16th at 8PMEST on ABC!

It’s a dream dance duo come true for Corbin and his partner, Karina Smirnoff.  During a chat with EOnline!, Karina revealed, “We’ve talked about Corbin doing the show for the last four years at least.  They would say, ‘Who would be your dream partner?’ and I’d say Corbin Bleu and explain why. The dream has come true!”  To which Bleu replied, “I always said I didn’t want to do it unless I got her as a partner.  There’s such connection with dance and you have to be able to understand each other’s body and listen and she listens so well.”

Corbin told PEOPLE about the first day of rehearsal.”The first day my thumb kinda popped in and out of its socket and it was swollen. And Karina’s back is all scraped up from me dragging her on the floor on a move.”  Bleu says that Smirnoff “is quite the whip-cracker” and that the pair have a team nickname that reflects how hard they’re been working. “We’ve decided that our team middle name is gonna be ‘One more time,’ ” he says. “Because every single time we finish (the routine), one of us says, ‘No, no, no, one more time!’ ”

As far as sizing up his chance on winning the Mirror Ball Trophy, “I’m athletic, and I know how to move and I understand music. I understand the timing, that’s definitely a battle won already.”

So will you be watching Corbin’s  journey that starts tomorrow? Do you think he stands a good shot at winning the Mirror Ball with Karina Smirnoff?  Weigh-in!

DWS winners depends on how many fans they have lol
The dancing needs to be very good but more than one couple is great, so it still ends up ”who is the most liked with the most fans who will win, even if the couple is not as good as their competition they will win..
So, he has a very good chance of winning on both counts, he is good 🙂 ..

Yes, I will be rooting for Corbin. Also for Valerie Harper, the actress from GLEE and Bill the Science Guy. Looking forward to seeing Corbin’s moves. Love that they are having a Broadway actor on the show, hope he gets to dance to Broadway music. I believe he was in Godspell and In The Heights in recent years.

Of all the people that could have represented “One Life to Live” over the years — Kassie DePaiva, David Fumero, Bree Williamson …

They choose HIM?!?

He was excellent dancing on DWTS BUT he was SO obnoxious afterwards quoting lines from his 2006 movie HS Musical & egging his fans/friends on from the audience. A big overblown showoff. I mean, so what, Chris Brown is a great dancer too but still a total jerk!
My props go out to Valerie Harper for being 70 & a cancer survivor & also Jack Osbourne.

B&B’s Matthew Atkinson On Gaining Custody of Douglas: “Thomas Just Wants to Take His Rightful Place”

On The Bold and the Beautiful, Thomas (Matthew Atkinson) wants to be more of an active father to his son, Douglas (Django Ferri), who has been living with Hope (Annika Noelle) and Liam (Scott Clifton).

When confronted with this news, Hope is not too happy, because she could lose being mother to the little boy, who she has come to love as her own.

In the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now), Atkinson shared on the story: “Thomas just wants to take his rightful place. He’s not saying they are no longer a family. It’s just the opposite.  He’s not prying Douglas away from Hope.  He knows Douglas has bonded with Hope, Liam and Beth, and he believes they can all make it work.”

The question is, will Thomas resort to extreme measures as he has in the past to get what he wants, or will he work this out with Hope and Liam?

Check out the latest promo for this week’s action on B&B below.

Now let us know, do you want Thomas to have more of a relationship with his son, Douglas? Should the boy live between all three ‘parents’? Should Douglas fight for solo custody? Comment below.
