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 »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.
