DWTS All-Stars Finale: Did GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy Get Your Vote? Are They Really More Than Just Dance Partners?

It was ladies night in the ballroom as General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam), television anchor and former cheerleader, Melissa Rycroft, and former Olympic champion, Shawn Johnson vied for the Mirror Ball Trophy in the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars final round.

Tonight the gals and their dance partners had to perform a routine they previously performed earlier in the season and then had to “wow” the judges and the audience at home with their Super-Sized Freestyle creation!

In the first round, Kelly and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy performed the paso doble hoping for their first set of perfect tens from the trio of judges.  A small slide by Kelly out of a turn knocked  down judge Carrie Ann Inaba’s score Kelly and Val a 9.5, while Bruno and Len gave the sexy duo perfect 10’s.  Meanwhile,  Melissa and her partner, Tony Dovolani performed the samba, where afterward Carrie Ann Inaba tells Melissa she is jealous of her abs, while Tony reminds everyone that he has waited 14 seasons to be a position to win the Mirror Ball Trophy.   The judges give Melissa and Tony all 10’s!   Finally, showstoppers Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough decided to go with the quickstep again.  This was the dance that they got harsh scores from the judges for breaking the rules.  Shawn and Derek say they are here to entertain more than thrill the judges and thus had points deducted once again and scored a 27.

In the Super Sized Freestyle round two, Kelly and Val danced to “I’ve Had The Time Of My Life” from Dirty Dancing with Kelly doing aerials, Val serenading her to a violin, and a choir!  Kelly and Val showed their undeniable chemistry on the ballroom floor, while the emotions of their time together during the competition was a driving force in their performance.   runo says, “Patrick Swayze would be smiling down at you.”  Len and Carrie Ann also liked it, and once again they scored a 29.5.    However, when Kelly and Val went to wait for their scores, DWTS All-Stars co-host, Brooke Burke-Charvet tried to eek out of Kelly what is going on in the relationship department between Kelly and Val.  Monaco teased, “There’s still another day of interviews.”   So will Kelly and Val admit to something tomorrow in the press? Or, do you think its a big tease?

Meanwhile, Melissa and Tony perform a contemporary Super-Sized Freestyle routine which showcased Rycroft’s extensions, grace, and abilities.  They get a perfect 10’s from all the judges leading many now to believe they are the couple to beat in the competition, but do they have the fan base?  Shawn Johnson brought in the Fierce Five – the woman’s U.S. Gymnastic team for her routine- and when Johnson took to the floors with Derek Hough and the gals it featured a lot of somersaults, flips, and circus rings, and Hough’s creative choreography.  They score a perfect 30!

So soapers, did you get vote for Kelly and Val?  Did you show them the power of the soaps fans?  What do you think is going on between Kelly and Val? Do you think it’s all just for PR?  Or, is something more going on between them?  And the big question, who do you think should win the Mirror Ball Trophy?  Let us know!

I voted for Kelly and Val, their chemistry is so hott. I believe that they will turn out to be more than just dance partners. I mean, come on, you don’ t just suck on a lollipop then put it somebody elses mouth if you’re not already swapping spit with them. Lol

I’m Proud of the amazing job Kelly Monaco has done on DWTS! Her performance last night with Val was Beautiful and Outstanding! And I can’t help but want there to be something more than just dance partners and friends. Everyone loves a good soap love story and this has been one of the best!

I think Kelly should come in third. I agree with Len that her choreography for her freestyle was unoriginal. It was like they took the moves straight from the movie. I expected more and was disappointed. Still, Kelly danced it well and has done well all season to get to the finals. But no, she didn’t get my vote.

I definitely think something is going on with Val and Kelly. Their dances were very good, but I am not sure they will be the winners. I think Shawn and Derek are far better, and have shown that throughout the season. Since I work at DISH on Monday nights, I always have to wait until the morning to watch DWTS. With my DISH Hopper, I can use Auto Hop since DWTS is recorded with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. I get through DWTS in less time, since it skips over the commercials for me, and I still have time to get… Read more »

As much as I love Kelly & Val and have been rooting for them all season, that freestyle to cheesy “Time of your Life” was not the greatest most orginal thing I’ve ever seen. I think they really needed to come out and do something fast and exciting for their second dance. Just loved Shawn & Derek and hope they take it all; they are thrilling to watch and I smile when I look at their dance routine.

I think Kelly and Val deserve to win. Their attraction is real but I think they’re playing it up for the camera. After this is over, they’ll tell everyone they’re just friends. Shawn’s performance was a mish mash of all of her dances and the same old, same old, not impressed by her at all.

I am so proud of the journey that has taken Kelly and Val to the finals, which they so deserve, and I think they make an adorable couple, and hope that they are, but I think they are truly good friends. Either way, what happens off the dance floor is their business, but I wish them much good luck tonight!!!! I would love to see them win, but I do think Melissa and Tony were also incredible.

I loved Kelly and Val last night, and voted for them. I did not like the freestyle dances that were done by the other two contenders. for the trophy!

unfortunately I didn’t get to vote!! I got home at 12:25AM so couldn’t phone vote, tried to vote on line but kept getting busy server messages… and same thing this morning and then got ‘voting is over’ why do they only do phone voting during the show and 1 hour after? It’s not like you can vote more than what they allow you to, and in my time zone that phone voting is over while the show still on (after the rest of you go to fall back time), which is crappy. but I wanted to give Melissa all of… Read more »

Question: Where does Kelly’s “friend” Heath, fit in during all of this romance on and off stage? He is there every week to support her. If I were him I would think the show that Vally are putting on in front of the cameras is just a little too much too take.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.
