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 »

In the real life story, the remains of the women were uncovered accidentally as police searched for Shannan, who went missing after visiting a client, whom she met on Craigslist, in the gated community of Oak Beach on Long Island, and then fleeing the man’s home.   However, police believe that Mari’s unwavering fight to find her daughter which led to finding the other women is not how Shannan ultimately disappeared.

While the case has yet to be solved the film shares, “Though the search for the serial killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon.”

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.
