Is there a more a beautiful couple to watch on this season’s Dancing with the Stars All-Stars, than General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy?  The sexy duo got kudos from the judges table last night in a difficult night of Fusion dancing in the ballroom television competition!

Kelly and Val had to perform a Cha-Cha/Foxtrot combo and scored a 27 for their efforts. They then added some more points as the runner-up in the evening’s Swing Marathon, leaving them for the week with a point total of 36!  That places Kelly and Val in third place on the leaderboard behind frontrunner’s Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dov0loni, and Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough (with an assist from Mark Ballas who subbed for the injured Hough for the night).

So what exactly is going on with Kelly and Val and their off the charts sizzling chemistry?  Monaco admitted during the show that their chemistry is unexplainable. “People don’t know what it is,” she says. “We don’t know what it is.”   DWTS co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet asked Val and Kelly, “What can we expect in the finale?”  Val chimes in deadpan stating, “Children!”

Now after the jump, watch Kelly and Val’s dance routine and segment on last night’s DWTS All-Stars! Let us know what you think of the dance prowess and chemistry between Kelly and Val!  Remember, there is a double elimination next week, and no Results Show tonight because of the 2012 Presidential Election.  So make your votes count for Kelly and Val, if they are your favorite dancing duo,  and get out and vote today and be a part of our democracy!

they danced a great dance and should have gotten a 10 or two. The swing dance marathon they were better than Melissa and I watched it several times. Kelly had more dancing in the marathon and Melissa was petering out with less dancing to save her breath; all in all Kelly and Val was great:>) previous post sent before I got to finish completely.

LOVE Kelly and Val!! So much passion in their performances but I think Shawn Johnson might take this.

I think Kelly and Val did super in both the solo dance and the dance off. They are a perfect match for eachother on the dance floor (and off, but that is up to them) !!! Not only are they great dancers, they never complain or speak unkindly of others, and they are always gracious. If Tom B. did not mention Kelly’s broken toe, we would not have known about it, and it was never mentioned again, while others constantly speak of their bumps and bruises. Clearly they have so much chemistry, and they were so honest and open about their feelings for eachother last night. I wish them lots of luck on the dance floor and off. I think they have what it takes to make it to the end!!!! I also enjoy Melissa and Tony, who give it their all as well. Yes, Shawn and Derek are great, but he is (imo) by far the best choreographer, combine that with Shawn’s gymnastic skills, and they almost become out of reach in terms of what they can do in comparison to the others, so that is why I want to see someone who does not have a jumpstart on everyone else, to win. I hope Kelly/Val and Melissa/Tony are the last two couples standing, and third place can be up for grabs. Honestly, they are all fun to watch this year, and most all live up to the “all star” title of the season. Good luck to everyone and go Kelly and Val.

Love Kelly and Val…..but I wonder what Heath Freeman thinks of all this closeness and chemistry. Heath is almost always there supporting Kelly and as far as I know they are still a couple.

Love Kelly and Val! Would love for them to make it to the end. All my votes go to them each week and I think they have been the most consistent each week and work so well off each other. The chemistry between them is undeniable and can’t be faked, no matter what people choose to believe. You either have it or you don’t and they just naturally have it. I think they win the trophy ball for best chemisty in DWTS history! I look forward to watching them each week & will be terribly sad to not have them on-screen anymore once this is all over. I want them to dance together forever(Kelly’s words!)!!!! Team Vally all the way!!

California Gov. Gavin Newsom Reveals TV & Film Production Restart June 12th; But May Not Include LA County

There was some significant signs that Hollywood and the state of California’s show business production looks to be gearing up for a restart after all TV and film production was halted a few months ago as the coronavirus pandemic hit the state, our country, and the globe.

The reopening for production may not include L.A. County, however, which is the epicenter of the state’s show business production.

According to Deadline: On Friday, Governor Gavin Newsom announced that the state could begin TV and film production as early as June 12th.  While the California Department of Public Health released the following guidelines:  “Music, TV and film production may resume in California, recommended no sooner than June 12, 2020 and subject to approval by county public health officers within the jurisdictions of operations following their review of local epidemiological data including cases per 100,000 population, rate of test positivity, and local preparedness to support a health care surge, vulnerable populations, contact tracing and testing. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, productions, cast, crew and other industry workers should abide by safety protocols agreed by labor and management, which may be further enhanced by county public health officers. Back office staff and management should adhere to Office Workspace guidelines published by the California Department of Public Health and the California Department of Industrial Relations, to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission.”

For LA County,  on Friday, the same day the guidelines were announced they saw a slight increase in hospitalizations, which could cause delays in getting production started.  “This has been a slight increase over the last three days in the number of people hospitalized,” said Los Angeles County Public Health Director Barbara Ferrer, “and we’ll need to make sure that we’re not starting to see a significant increase in the number of people requiring hospitalizations.”

Newsom has said modifications to regional guidance would be allowed so long as there are attestations at the county level that there are adequate plans in place should a rise in COVID cases be seen again.   As of May 18, when L.A. filed its attestation, the county had a stable or declining number of patients hospitalized for COVID-19.   However, there has been an uptick in cases as of Friday which could effect the production restart in Hollywood as well as the noted uptick in hospitalizations; all of which are measures in the protocol guidelines that need to be on the decline for things to move forward.

So the question remains: if there is a surge in Los Angeles in COVID-19 cases production could again be delayed getting started back up and running? So what do you think about the June 12th date for the state of California to start TV and film production? Do you hope your favorite soaps get back into production as soon as possible, or do you want to make extra sure that all your favorites will be safe and sound when they tape new episodes?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.
