DWTS All-Stars: GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy Move Up The Leaderboard!

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
