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

Courtesy/ABC

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?

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
