DWTS ALL-STARS: GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy At Bottom Of Leaderboard! Will They Be "Saved" Tonight?


Tonight is a pivotal night for our soap gal, Kelly Monaco (Sam) of General Hospital and her dance partner, Val Chermkovskiy!  After three nights of ballroom dancing competition, including two group dances and two individual routines, Kelly and Val were at the bottom of the leaderboard amongst the eight remaining couples vying for the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Mirror Ball Trophy!

With a score of 78.5 out of  a possible 90 points, Kelly and Val fell off the pace, even though they seemed to redeem themselves with a tango last night where Monaco looked beautiful and channeled her inner Scarlet O-Hara in a routine that had to be danced to a Country-inspired tune and theme.

Most noticeably of the night for Kelly and Val, was the kiss that has been talked about when Val planted it on Kelly just as they completed their dance.   Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said, “Nice comeback!” of the routine.  However, the question on everyone’s mind is, did Kelly and Val get enough viewers votes at home to stay alive in the competition?

One other wrinkle was that “Sandy” which was engulfing the east coast, and shutting down power in homes all across the eastern states and seaboard, made ABC expand the time for viewers to vote which had a cut off this morning as of 11AM EST.  Will that have helped or hurt Kelly and Val?  Did soap fans and GH fans call in and support the couple?  

Let us know if you think Kelly and Val will be saved? Or God forbid, the sexy duo will be sent home tonight on the Results Show?

Wow I hope that she will not get voted off. i was unable to watch last night. lost power. At work now didn’t realize that I could have voted. Darn it!!! lol

Kelly needs to be saved! She gives 110% in everything she does. GH fans unite & save our gal!!! God bless.

I certainly hope they will be safe. Kelly definitely deserves to be there. At least from last night’s dance – she was NOT the worst, or even in the bottom.

Kirsty did NOT deserve those 2 extra points! She was SO off! Watch the group dance from the beginning, she is so out of sync. And her individual time with Maks was NOT the most entertaining.

I have no qualms with Kirsty, but I think it’s unfair that because her reputation of being the “entertaining” one, plus being the oldest and being the “worst” amongst the remaining dancers, she was awarded the points. I bet they knew they were going to give them to her before she even danced.

As for Kelly, I’m rooting for her, though I do have 2 other favs. Her tango wasn’t her best and deserved the points she was given, but for the group number, she was the standout IMO. I’m not even talking from a place of bias….as a dancer and from the angles and shots I saw, she nailed it.

Hope she doesn’t leave. Hope it’s Emmitt.

I agree I did not think Kirsty deserve those 2 extra points. I thought the whole concept of awarding anyone extra points for a group dance was lame. In previous years it was all for fun. Plus I agree Kirsty is not entertaining unless you just like watching to see how awful she can really be. If this show was about merit, then Kelly will be staying and Kristy will be going, but that might not happen. Also, I’m not a GH viewer, so I don’t know Kelly other than what I have seen on Dancing, but why does she always look so mad? Is she always like that or is she just taking the Dancing thing really seriously? Either way I fear her lack of smiling might not win her the hearts of DWTS’s GA. I hope her soap fans were able to pull up her numbers and she will be staying, because I like her dancing and the chemistry she has with Val.

I watched last night and I have to say that Kelly and Val had the best individual dance when doing all the couples dance for country. I was extremely disappointed on whom they picked to win the extra 2 points. I have watched the show from day one and have to say if Kelly and Val go home before any of these couples, I may watch a different show other than DWTS on Monday and Tuesday nights. Kelly was the first winner for dancing with the stars! She does the technique of the dance absolutely gorgeous as if she’s been dancing since a child. She doesn’t have to add gymnastics or be funny through a routine to win the audiences pick. She dances with great passion and since the judges have been horrible to her last week and this week, it almost makes me wonder are they not voting for her because she does have one of the best call in votes and they feel bad for the others or are they just being unfair. I’m a middle aged 50 year old woman and did go for dance to college (as I stated before when I first made my comments), I did not get my degree and one of my biggest misstakes in my life but I know one thing I know when a dancer is really what the word means dancer is through their passion (feeling from the heart and looking into the partners eyes and feeling their beat natually, is what the passion of the dance is and Kelly and Val both have this), technique, grace, style and staying into the character that the dance you are performing at the time. Last nights dance go back and watch it, it was absolutely beautiful.

Kelly is good, but fact is; there are some better than her.. and her being at the bottom of the leaderboard is proof ..

The storm will have much to do with the votes as there is no way to watch or vote for the east coast..

MarySF: I’m not a GH fan (any longer) nor am I a particular Kelly fan, but I know she isn’t sour in real life. I know exactly what you’re saying though about not looking happy. To me, I see it as humility. She’s not trying to get too excited when she does amazing (as she did in her contemporary dance), and she’s not trying to be too down when she isn’t (like the past two weeks). But in real life, from what I’ve seen and heard, she doesn’t take herself too seriously and has a personable personality.

Selma: Interesting, I actually do agree with the judges remarks on their performances the past two weeks. Last week in particular was not good and it really deserved last. This week her tango wasn’t stellar either, but I think the length and fluff at the end of her dress impeded on how she danced and how we viewed it (through leg and footwork). But I do agree with you in that the judges picked the wrong duo to award extra points to. I believe that was agenda driven as well.

Kelly and Val deserve to be there until the end and win!!! No other couple has as much passion and presentation as they do. Their chemistry together is as if they have been dancing together since childhood. It doens’t take a judge who has a degree in dance or just has dance professionally to see just that and if they don’t see that, well then what a shame. They share one great passion together and that is the word called, DANCE!!! They have technique, grace, showmanship, presentation and passion! They feel from the heart down to their feet each others next move and step and that is dancing. Go team Kelly and Val!!! All us PA., are cheering you on!!! Hopefully, all of your fans were able to vote for you for the judges weren’t on your side the past two week and look when Paula was a judge, listen to their comments that evening. Hopefully, Hurricane Sandy didn’t effect your fans voting!!! Good luck!!!

If Kelly is voted off I will not watch DWTS again. The judges put her in this position. It is a popularity contest with the judges too. I was so sad that her dance last week was considered rounchy for Len, Last night Carrie Ann said Kelly and Val were one of the best at the end of the star line and what do they do? they give the extra two points to Kristy who did nothing spectacular for the country group number. I cannot express how hard they have been on Apolo and Kelly. It is so obvious. I noticed also that if you cry enough the judges will give a good score to the cry babies. AFTER this season I am gone, I had enough. I did it with Americian Idol when Chris Daughtry was voted off. I’m tired of the phoniness and the fake judge knowledge of dance…..Goodbye ABC you sure do have a way to get rid of viewers. ABC should pass this knowledge to other networks, they seem to be the best at getting rid of viewers.

I hope and pray she will be safe tonight I am on the east coast where the storm luckily we kept power and I got my votes in from and texts.i had a hard time with the Facebook votes but I got thm through this morning around 9:30 am before going back to sleep for a bit.

Kelly is not as good as those who are voted higher on the learderbpoard ..
she is good and worked hard so have the others and some have been better than Kelly,,
she is getting fan votes not talent votes, that is not right..

But, anyways, what will be will be,,
Kelly gave her all and did a good job.. 🙂

I voted every way I could for Kelly and Val this week and last week!!! Their Tango was one of the best dances of the night and they were not given the scores they deserved!!! And the worst dancer was given better scores than Kelly! Ridiculous!!! And Kelly and Val’s solo in the group dance was the best of all the couples and yet the judges gave the extra two points to the worst dancer in the group! Ridiculous!!!

I am happy that Kelly and Val will dance another week, as they truly deserve the opportunity to do so. They work together so well. Good Luck to both of you with the “fusion dance”, I am sure you will do well. As for who did leave, I am not a fan of Sabrina, and I really do not know why, she is sweet and nice and a heck of a dancer, but I just cannot take to her for some reason, yet I do like Louie. Putting all of that aside, they did not deserve to leave this week.

Thank god we found out right away that Kelly was safe. It was a shock to have someone who got all 10s go home. I guess the viewer voting really does work! Hope Kelly wins, but if not, is at least in the top three.

I’m still not sure who Kirstie’s fan base is. Hard to believe she’s still there. Maybe the senior citizens are keeping her on…and DON’T get on me for that remark…I’M a senior citizen!! Nothing against her personally…I like her…but her dancing does NOT deserve the scores the judges are giving her.

“I’m still not sure who Kirstie’s fan base is.”

I am presuming it is the Church of Scientology. Michelle Stafford always votes for her and promotes her via Twitter and Kelly Preston usually is there in the audience.

How could I have forgotten? Of course it’s the Church!

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Photo: JPI

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

Photo: ABC

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
