It was fantastic night of dancing for General Hospital favorite and former Dancing with the Stars season one champ, Kelly Monaco (Sam)!

On tonight’s Dancing with the Stars All-Stars competition, Kelly and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy wowed the audience and the judges with their sizzling Paso Doble!   For tonight’s episode the celebrities got to be the creative director’s of their own routine, and the routine had to be chosen from an iconic dance from a previous season of Dancing with the Stars.

For Kelly and Val’s Paso Doble performance, the judges comments ranged from: “I’m tingling with pleasure,” from Bruno, to Carrie Ann Inaba stating,  “You’re the couple to watch.”   And Len Goodman topped it off with a comment to Kelly of, “Where did that come from?”   Soap fans will have noticed also that Kelly’s on-screen mom, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis, GH) was cheering Kelly on from the audience and was all smiles after Kelly’s performance.

After the judges scores, and a rousing night of competition that saw some of the best dances ever in the history of DWTS, Kelly and Val scored a 27 landing them at the top of the leaderboard tied with Melissa Rycroft and her dance partner Tony Dovolani!

Bristol Palin, who last week was saved from the bottom three, had a meltdown earlier in the week during rehearsals with her partner, Mark Ballas, which was documented and shown during the broadcast.  Palin and Ballas ended up once again with the lowest score from the judges this week with a 22.5.   Many thought that the best performance of the night belonged to Olympic Champion, Shawn Johnson, and her partner, Derek Hough!  The duo performed a quickstep with flips, jumps, and that’s putting it mildly.  While the couple did break the rules, they did not suffer to much in the scoring as they are still in the number two position in the leaderboard.  Bruno exclaimed, “It’s one of the best dances, if not the best in all 15 seasons.”

After the jump, watch Kelly and Val’s Paso Doble, then let us know what you thought of their performance? And, who do you think will go home tomorrow night in the double elimination?  Let us know!

Val and Kelly certainly earned that shared top spot last night. She was so very poised and did a stunning job with Val. They do make a great team. If you feel the same, please vote to keep them in the competition. Sometimes with this show, when someone does so well, people tend to not vote for them thinking that they will be fine, but as many of us know, that is not always the case, so vote for Kelly and Val if you enjoyed their top-ranked performance!!!! Kudos to Kelly and Val, great job, and whether it is real… Read more »

No Kelly hasn’t taken off GH. She said she is working while rehearsal and would have just one week of vacation. That weeks vacation maybe ths week. I heard her say she would be on vacation for a week, last week. Anyway, that was about the BEST Paso Dobla dance I have ever seen on the show. I love to see Kelly made up, accentating her Italian heritaage.

I was SO proud of Kelly last night! She danced like a pro and totally showed the audience (and her competiters!) that she deserves her spot in this all-star season! Her and Val’s chemistry was on fire, she played the role in the paso perfectly, her footwork and lines were incredible- I was so impressed! Loved every second and can’t wait to see her dance again next week!

Kelly was FANTASTIC. My honey saw her dance , along with Melissa’s, Shawn’s and Derryck”s, Emitts, and Bristols….. and he said Kelly’s was BEST. NOW, as for ABCD-dumb network. SHAME SHAME SHAME on the network for inviting Bristol Palin on for the All-Star Reunion. Why? Here you have former OUTSTANDING winner’s being VOTED off, because of the strong following as the Tea-Party. I thought this was a Dance, yes Dance competition, NOT A POPULARITY competiton. ABC knew this was an All-Star cast and many of them were 1st and 2nd place CHAMPIONS. Therefore, they take this competiton seriously; they have… Read more »

Did you see Bristol’s face? I know, I would have ELIMINATED myself. I would not have allowed ABC to use…….. me as their guinny pig. Bristol knows what happened last time, so she had an expectation of what WOULD happen THIS time. Bristol was ALSO, feeling the HEAT and is WHY she had the MELT DOWN in rehearsal with Mark. She knew she wasn’t as good and should be eliminated. The order to leave should have been as follows: Pam, Bristol, Kristie, and Joey for starter’s. They need to change the over-all final judging to be the decision of the… Read more »

Wednesday morning, Oct 10th. 8:22 am. I just saw Drew and Elio on Good Morning America. I am PROUD of Drew. He brought it up and brought it up so eloquently, rather than just saying he was ” ok ” with being voted off so soon. He said, he’s a fan of the show, and he ” wants the show to GET THIS MONKEY OFF IT’S BACK about people being on the show that shouldn’t be, and continue on to being a crediable show “. How frank was he and eloquent, OPPOSE to trying to make us believe he is… Read more »

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
