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 or not, that chemistry is most definitely there!!!!!

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 an EGO and PRIDE of being a former winner. Why would ABC invite Bristol knowing the strong following of the Tea-party? This is (what happened tonight) the reason DWTS has lost some of it’s momentum. There are GOOD dancer’s that get voted off because they aren’t popular. People get TIRED of seeing people (crushed) knowing they did a better job than someone else. And if there were any season, THIS (should not) have been the season for ANY POPULARITY contest! These champions and 1st place contestants take the time to SERIOUSLY come back, work hard, perform and entertain us, ONLY to be voted off by a lesser competitor and the Tea- Party. : ( This is F**ked up. ABC owes Drew and Elio an apology, and (whoever else) goes out before Bristol Palin. This is like the scam that went on with Marie and Donny Osmond. Marie used the audience/ and her fans to stay on-while giving out ” lack luster ” performances, week after week, staying on until 3rd place, of which SHE did not derserve. THEN, Donny showed up the next season (and while he did FAR BETTER than Marie- yes he worked hard) he WAS NOT the BEST dancer and (should not) have won.This takes the fun out of it for everyone. Again, this is suppose to be a ” dance” competition, not a ” popularity ” competition. One of my best friends STOPPED watching for this reason. She would throw DWTS viewing parties. All of that stopped when she consistenly saw WELL DESERVED competitors go home before others. And none of the 16 to 24 people that came to her viewing party, even watch the show anymore. Furthermore, if this was TRUELY All-Star: Bristol, Pam A. and Kristie should not have been there. Neither of them even landed in 1st place. It should have been TRUELY All- Star. Once again SHAME on ABC for taking advantage of it’s former winner’s, for ratings and viewership resulting in Bristol Palin. By doing this, ABC acts as if they are on the verge of cancelation. It’s called GREED folks, at the expense of the former winner’s, the show’s audience, and the fans-ALL of which who either show up/ tune in/ every weekend to see a ” dance ” competition. How could one still want to be there knowing their presense their have sent someone else home, WHO should STILL… 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 judges.

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 FINE…..with being voted off ?!!!

I was so upset, that I didn’t stay up to here his and Elio’s interview with Jimmy Kimmel last night. In fact, I cut the TV off, just five minutes before their interview started. I suppose I could handle it this morning. But then again, I happen to have the TV on and was changing channels and cought them as the start of the interview.

Go Drew for keeping it REAL. Nothing like the facts, nothing like honestly.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Julexis Goes To Therapy

On General Hospital, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) was able to convince Julian (William deVry) to attend therapy with her to help her better understand her issues with men and relationships, which all of have been tainted by the destructive relationship between her father Mikkos Cassadine and her mother.

When Julexis sits down for the session with Dr. Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom), things take a bad turn when Alexis starts explaining to Julian why he is there, while Julian feels it’s just an attack on him, and their past, especially when it comes up how he held a knife at her throat on the pier and tried to kill her. Julian tells Kevin that everything he did was to protect his family from his crazy sister, Olivia.

Julian is ready to storm out, but Kevin suggest they implement more structure to the session to make this work for everyone.  It’s clear Julian does want to help Alexis, and/or also come to understand something about himself and their relationship, and why it splintered.  When asked by Kevin why Julian felt encouraged to pursue Alexis when he first came to town; knowing he was a criminal and she was on the right-side-of-the-law, Julian with tears in his eyes says, “Redemption.”  Julian says he fell in love with Alexis, but also liked the idea of proving and becominga better man.  He then says that both of them were trying to break the cycle of violence from their pasts, and he wished they had both been able to do so – in a heavy-dose-of-reality moment for Julexis.

The session ends, and Julian and Alexis walk to the hospital elevator, and he agrees to go to more sessions with her, saying that they both have issues to address so they can move on with their lives.  Alexis thanks Julian and offers one day to repay this favor.

In these scenes, William deVry and Nancy Lee Grahn brought the heartfelt emotions and the internal conflict that has made Julexis a dynamic duo on GH.   Now with Julian seemingly moving on with Kim (Tamara Braun), and Alexis wanting a fresh start, will these joint therapy sessions enable them to do that  … or perhaps can they resolve the issues that have plagued them, and move on with each other, and grow from it?

So, do you think this is the true end of the road for Julexis?  What did you think of the performances of Will and Nancy?  Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Chase and ‘Janelle’ Two Sides To Every Story?

On Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, viewers were given more of the back-story between Chase (Josh Swickard) and Nelle (Chloe Lanier) told through a series of flashback from their disparate recollections.

At the PCPD, over the phone, Chase thanks his former police partner, Abby for sending the files he had on one … Janelle Benson.  As he peruses through the files and sees the image of Nelle contained within it, and a postcard from Florida, Chase flashes back to his interrogation room and meeting suspect ‘Janelle’, when he was working as an officer in Maine.  Nelle was being questioned in the drowning of her fiance’ Zack..  Chase asks why the upset ‘Janelle’ chose to vacation in Maine instead of Florida.  She says it was so Zack could put space between him and his disapproving family.  However, ‘Janelle’ does admit going kayaking was her idea.

Next, she cries that she had to make the decision to try to save Zack from drowning, but thought maybe she might die too, so she decided to save herself, and not go in after him, in what was an impossible situation to be in.  Abby questions ‘Janelle’ about Zack changing his will right before they headed off for their vacation.  ‘Janelle’ lets it firmly be known that it was all Zack’s idea to change his will.

Chase believes ‘Janelle’ is innocent, but Abby thinks Janelle is played the helpless victim card.  Chase decides to release Nelle.  Later, Chase remembers traveling to Florida, because Nelle was reportedly being harassed by Zack’s family.  When he got to Florida, he recalls staying in a motel, and was set to meet up with her at a diner.  However, ‘Janell’e surprised him while he was half-naked in a towel and the door of his room.  Next thing you know, things get hot and heavy as she seduces him.  Chase flashes to them hitting the sheets and being in the throes of passion, and promising to take care of everything for her.

Meanwhile, Nelle and Michael (Chad Duell) are talking at The Floating Rib.  Nelle admits to Michael that she has a past with Chase, and her fear of him trying to bring her down now that he is in Pot Charles.  She says that Chase would do anything to get ahead in his career.  Michael asks if Maine was truly the last time she saw Chase.  She says it wasn’t, and says he followed her to Florida.

Now, as there are two sides to every story, Nelle flashes to coming to visit Chase at his motel room; where he is only wearing a towel . In her version, she portrays Chase as the instigator.  She start to cry and tells Michael that in her gut she knew that something was off about Chase, but she felt like she was drowning inside and he was her lifeline. Nelle says Chase became obsessed with her.

Then while alone, Nelle remembers how she was able to get Chase to go out to the store and get her some water after their hot sexcapade.. Once she is all by herself, Nelle calles the police to report misconduct by an officer at the motel.  Meanwhile, Michael has headed over to the PCPD to confront Chase.

So, which version of the story of  Chase and ‘Janelle’ do you believe? It appears Nelle has done a number on Chase. What did you think of Chloe Lanier’s performance where she can go from portraying the victim in a situation, to an evil bitch, with ease?  What do you think of Josh Swickard as the PCPD’s main cop, now that Dominic Zamprogna (Dante) is on his way out of GH?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below.

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?
