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!!

General Hospital’s Cynthia Watros Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

Friday’s episode of General Hospital combined with Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, saw Daytime Emmy-winner, Cynthia Watros, run through the gamut of emotions in her portrayal of the duped Nina Reeves on her wedding day and the aftermath.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: After Learning The Truth About Sasha; Nina Leaves Her Wedding To Valentin ... With Jax

Watros, who made Annie Dutton of Springfield and Guiding Light one of the most memorable soap roles of all-time, showed GH viewers why she is just THAT good!  We have always said that Cynthia can play: drama, romance, torture, cray-cray, heartbreak all rolled-into-one; especially when given the material.

In story, after part of the secret is out that Sasha (Sofia Matteson) is not really Nina’s bio-daughter – Nina, who has had everything she believed in fall in on her, tries to regain her strength to go back to Wyndemere to face Valentin, and move out of his house.  Once there to get her things, Nina tells Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that where she goes is no longer his business.

 

Valentin admits that he was looking for her daughter which caused this whole situation, but he also does not admit his part in the Sasha cover-up and that he was the one paying her to portray Nina’s daughter.  He even goes so far to insist that Sasha’s actions were all her own.  Nina still does not believe him.  After she packs her bag, and heads for the door. Valentin tells her that his life is meaningless without her. Nina basically says, “True, that” in so many words … and makes her exit.

Next, with sunglasses on, Nina returns to the workplace at Crimson where she finds Sasha with Michael (Chad Duell) and Lucy (Lynn Herring).  She calls security and tells them all to get out.  Sasha then spins a yarn, much to the chagrin of the audience, knowing that if she implicates Liesl (Kathleen Gati) and Valentin, Nina would be devastated.  So, Sasha says she acted alone and faked being Nina’s daughter, when she was contacted by her attorney, and she was in cahoots with the guy … until he suddenly died!  What!?  Nina looks very suspicious… and throws back that how would Sasha know how to change three DNA test results.  Sasha had an answer for that – she had a friend who works in a lab do it.   Nina still believes she could not have done this alone without Valentin.  Then, in a heartbreaking speech, Watros as Nina shares how she has lost everything: her daughter, her marriage, hope she even had a daughter in the first place, and the list goes on.

And … let’s not forget Tuesday’s nuptials, which we gave our review and recap previously here.  It is there that Nina is first blindsided, and the betrayal, rage, and hurt displayed by Watros was all top-notch.  Here is Nina finally marrying the man she loves, whom she had to allow herself to come to trust all over again so she could be with him, even with all of the warning signs around her.  Not only does she have Lulu (Emme Rylan) spoil her nuptials with exposing the secret of Sasha, but then has to process the deception  which means to her that maybe she never had the child she so desperately wanted and believed she had all along.

The Friday cliffhanger though posed an upcoming intriguing scene.  Ava (Maura West) showed up with a bottle of booze to commiserate with Nina at Crimson (The same woman who Nina literally ripped the baby right out her and kidnapped it in a heinous revenge plot).  Will these two wronged woman team up?  Will there be hell to pay?  That is yet to be seen, but without a doubt, Cynthia Watros is Michael Fairman TV’s ‘Power Performance of the Week’.

Let us know if you agree with our pick via the comment section below, and what you thought about Cynthia’s work in these key episodes.
