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,,

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!

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

Courtesy/ABC

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
