DWTS All-Stars: Have GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy Rumba'd Into The Finals? Or, Is It The Hottest Couple's Last Dance?



Dancing with the Stars All-Stars has now aired on all parts of the U.S. and after each of the five remaining couples performed two dances in the semi-final round tonight, the competition is very close!

Our favorite couple General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, did not start out too well after the first dance which was a “Surfer Tango”.   Many felt the highlight of this dance was Val in a Speedo! When the judges weighed in, Bruno said Kelly was upstaged by the Speedo, and her placement wasn’t there!  The duo scored a 25.5 after the first round of dancing, landing them at the bottom of the leaderboard.

However, Kelly and Val were the last couple to dance, and for their final dance of the evening they rumba’d to the music of Michael Jackson’s, “I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.”   Talk about sexy!  It was steamy and yet beautiful to watch!  And while Val felt that they deserved “10’s” the duo scored 9.5’s across the board from the judges giving them a 28.5.

At the end of the night, Kelly and Val tied with Emmitt Smith and Cheryl Burke for the total lowest score on the leaderboard with a combined total of 54.    At the top, however, was Derek Hough and Shawn Johnson with 59 , followed by Melissa Rycroft and Tony Dovolani with 57.5, and then Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff with 57.  There is a double elimination on tomorrow’s night’s Results Show! 

So soapers, did you vote tonight for Kelly and Val?  Who do you think should be going home on tomorrow night’s double elimination?  Let us know!

All my votes went to Kelly & Val! Hoping his sexy speedo & passion propelled them to the finals. Come on GH fans vote online NOW!

Sorry but I voted mostly for Derek and Shawn I did vote for Kelly but I am afraid she and Emmett are leaving Tuesday

I voted for Shawn & Derek too! They are the best dancers & if they don’t win, something’s wrong!

I just voted for Kelly and Vall. Great job!

It is genuinely sad how the judges truly show favoritism, as it is the same couples week after week who they drool over. Even when “the chosen” make mistakes, which the judges very briefly brush over, they still score 9’s and 9.5’s, but Kelly and Val are often highly praised and still get lower scores. I am not blinded by my like for Kelly and Val either, as when they do not do quite as well as some of the others, I get it (I was not blown away with their first performance last night, but thought the second truly deserved 10’s). I hope Kelly and Val make it into the finals (my fingers are crossed), but if they do not, they truly did an amazing job and have much to be proud of. If they do not make it (and I want them to), I am rooting for Tony and Melissa – they can pull off the same high flying moves that Shawn can without the gymnastics background (and Kelly does well in that area too). Good Luck Kelly and Val, and here’s hoping we can enjoy the two of you in the finals !!!!!

I really like and enjoy all five remaining contestants, hate to see any of them leave. BUT all my votes went to Kelly and Val. 🙂

I love Kelly and Val but I think Shawn Johnson is so talented so my bet is on her or Melissa Rycroft winning this. The top 3 tonight should be Apolo, Shawn & Melissa. Sorry Kel & Emmitt – you’re good, but they’re great!

I hope Kelly & Val aren’t eliminated tonight !! She is so pretty & I like her moves & alfits to boot!!! Cross your fingers GH fans!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I voted for Kelly and Val on all my phones! Hope they stay for the Finals!!!

I thin Emmit needs to go home. I love Kelly and Val. Kelly has shown more imiprovement than anyone on the show. Shswn’s gymnastics are cute, but not so much dancy. I sure hope Kelly and Val make it to the finals. I agree that the judges have short changed them so many times. Go Kelly and Val!!!

Judges have really been making me angry when it comes to Kelly. She has a flawless dance and gets at the MOST 9.5, yet when Apolo slips or Shawn throws out the rulebook or Melissa seems to not throw herself into the dance, they get 10s. I find it absurd and if Kelly goes home, I will not blame her, Val, or America- I’ll blame Len, Bruno, and Carrie Ann because of their favoritism and horrible critiques. Kelly has shown the most improvement, her and Val show how passionate they are in every dance, not to mention Kelly does more technically challenging dances than staying safe like her competitors.

Thank god…and the fans…Kelly made it through to the finals!
I am so happy that Apolo and Emmitt finally are gone. Nice guys, but they didn’t deserve to go on.

Kelly and Val are in the Finals!! Emmit and Apollo are eliminated. Great news!!

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
