It took a few weeks but finally America had enough of Bristol Palin’s attempt to compete with her much more competent competitors!  On last night’s Dancing with the Stars All-Stars Results Show, Bristol Palin and her dance partner, Mark Ballas were finally voted off the show after landing in the bottom three with Kristie Alley and Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Apolo Anton Ohno and Karina Smirnoff!

As far as General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her partner Val Chmerkovskiy they remained safe and will dance again next week as they continue their quest for the Mirror Ball Trophy!

Of note was that next week there will be a team competition as the top of the leaderboard couples, Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd and Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough, picked couples they wanted to be on their dance team.  Marini immediately chose first, Kelly and Val!

Were you happy that Bristol and Mark were sent home? What do you think of Kelly and Val’s chances of winning the competition?  Let us know!

Kelly and Val deserve to be there until the end and win!!! No other couple has as much passion and presentation as they do. Their chemistry together is as if they have been dancing together since childhood. It doens’t take a judge who has a degree in dance or just has dance professionally to see just that and if they don’t see that, well then what a shame. They share one great passion together and that is the word called, DANCE!!! They have technique, grace, showmanship, presentation and passion! They feel from the heart down to their feet each others… Read more »

I was voting for Kelly the whole season until now. I think the way Val oggles her is disrespectful. He is very creepy. Love Kelly on GH but I think her partner is being very obvious and should really show some more respect and restraint for a lady and she should be expecting that behavior.

lorilai445, Kelly nor Val are vulgar (nasty) dancers. They are true blue dancers. I’m 50 years old and went to college for dance. I didn’t graduate (one of my biggest mistakes in life); however, I know a dancer when I see one and she is one. She performs with grace, passion and captures the audiences there and on the t.v., as if they are the one dancing the part. She dances with pure heart and soul. Val just brings it out in her. Don’t judge her for then you need to judge the other dancers and even the judges for… Read more »

I read that Kelly still has a bf and she and Val are just dance partners. They care for each, but apparently that’s it.

It does seem like more, but I guess things get intense when you spend that much time together.

My husband commented on Val’s affectionate behavior toward Kelly the first night of the show. Now he is convinced that there is more between them after this week and the after show interview we saw online. I can’t begin to comment on Kelly’s relationship with Heath, but there is an obvious mutual attraction between her and Val. It is too intense not to be real. They are making DWTS much more interesting to watch.

Christy

they brought that question up on my local news after DWTS was on… one gal said she thinks they’re acting on a cue from the Hunger Games… like they’ll get more votes if it looks like they’re a real couple.

I don’t know, but he seemed to behaving a little creepy close to her on the first couple of shows – almost like she was being polite but kinda like ‘hey, you’re a little too close to me,move’

oh i agree – most with the Bristol deal. I don’t think she should have been on at all – she was not a champion dancer by any means, even if she got to stay on (too long) on the first competition.. I can think of so many other people that have been on and would have loved to see Brandy have a 2nd chance at the mirror ball… She was so much better than Bristol and it was terrible-the look on her face – when she heard that she was getting booted off and Bristol got to stay! that… Read more »

You’re right, she shouldn’t have been on there in the 1st place. It is Dancing with the “Stars” so I think they should stick to that. Bristol is barely even a reality “star” oh well, she’s gone. They should have had Lisa Rinna back again; hey, she did good after all. Anyone but Bristol! At least it’s a competition now 🙂

To use (tongue in cheek) the misused term : Why all the “haters” so concerned about Bristol Palin?Root for the one you want and leave Bristol Palin alone.There is one daytime actress (who was in the audience last night)you makes the most vulgar,rude,crude,vitriolic comments about Bristol Palin and her mother.Why the bitterness and rudeness?Why not just root for and vote for Kelly and keep a civil attitude toward others.It is most unattractive otherwise

I just want to say how much I agree with you! Don’t get personal with Bristol. Just like we’re not getting personal with Kelly. We’re rooting for Kelly because a) she’s from the soap community; and b) we like her dancing. And if you happen to be a fan from GH too, all the better. So why make it anything more for Bristol? It’s a dancing competition, not a personality competition. And with regards to the “daytime actress” you speak of, amazing how she tweets disgusting, hateful and rude comments all the time about republicans and those who vote for… Read more »

I agree (with Chris). Dancing with the stars, is to be judged on your dancing skills. I think they’re putting to much credit to being able to stay on by viewer votes, which you can vote by each phone number, and each email account you have. I think the judges rating should be what they go by and if they have a tie, then use viewer votes and maybe we only get 1 vote. It’s just crazy when someone who doesn’t do well gets to stay and the really good dancers (participants) don’t get to stay. It’s not the “stay… Read more »

I couldn’t agree more. That “actress who shall not be named” (NLG) is pretty disgusting at times with her comments.

I just happen to be a Republican and I believe everyone has a right to choose their beliefs. I don’t force my opinion on anyone…I don’t need some “actress” telling me everything that is wrong with Republicans or putting down everyone who is a Republican.

I don’t know Pamela Anderson’s dancing was rather sad for an All Star season, so I think it was fitting she went home first. But if we are talking about skill level, then yes,Palin should have gone home second, not Joey and Kristie Alley should have gone home before Drew or Helio.

What is w/ all the hatred that still exists from the left leaning mainstream media against the Palins? That family has to be mocked by liberals that run the mainstream media. Many horrid dancers on DWTS have lasted longer than they should have but the media obsesses against Bristol’s dancing. Heck hollywood has to even mock Trigg’s special needs! A child w/ special needs has to be BULLIED all bec his family is republican and conservative and therefore hated by lefty loons. Does the viper’s nest of liberalism that is hollywood find nothing sacred? the Palins are from Alaska and… Read more »

Amen great post! Sarah Palin is not the reason this country is going downhill so fast I do not think she had a thing to do with the 5.1 trillion debt in the last 3 years? Did she?

Yet Clint’s empty chair routine was fantastic and resonant.

dwts is supposed to be dancing with the “stars” – now my question is what is bristol a star of? bristol should never have been on the first time because she does not come from any category of stardom………….
it’s a shame mark had to endure all the whining & crying – she even had the nerve to try to throw mark under the bus by saying he never supported her or tried to help her…….mark did the best he could with what little talent bristol came to the table with……………………
am i glad she’s gone – absolutely!

Oh, the poor Palins being bullied by everyone else. If they can’t handle it maybe they should try to stay out of the limelight. When did telling the truth turn into bullying ? Bristol is not a good dancer! I watch Dwts to be entertained and someone unable to Dance is not entertaing no matter WHO they are related to. But since you bring it up since quitting as Governor of Alaska Ms Palin is not above using any means possible including her daughter to remain relevant in mainstream media/political arena. If you quit a job you don’t hang around… Read more »

It’s bad enough you are ignorant (if not stupid) but you harm your argument by adding vulgarity to it. You couldn’t possibly believe that Sarah Palin’s relevance and influence in the political arena are in any way enhanced by the fact that her daughter is on a light entertainment television program .Could you? As a matter of fact I would venture to guess that Sarah Palin would be happier if her daughter had not appeared on the show the second time around.The producers of the show obviously thought Bristol’s inclusion in the cast would be good for buzz and for… Read more »

Cailtin Reilly to Appear in General Hospital Tribute Episode to Her Father John Reilly

Tik Tok star, Cailtin Reilly, who is the daughter of the late soap veteran, John Reilly, will play a key role in the General Hospital tribute episode in her dad’s honor.

According to Variety who broke the casting news, Caitlin will portray Annie, formerly known as Anna, the daughter of her father’s character Sean Donely and Tiffany Hill (Sharon Wyatt).

In a statement on her casting,  Caitlyn expressed: “Words can’t describe how honored I am to be playing my dad’s daughter on the show. I grew up on the set of ‘General Hospital,’ watching him work for years, so it’s exciting to dive into a new character in honor of him. He’ll absolutely be by my side in spirit on set rooting me on. It fills my heart with gratitude to be a part of this tribute to him, and to feel so close to him working on a show he loved so much doing.”

The character of Anna was last seen on-air back in August of 2013, when she was portrayed by Courtney Halverson. In story at that time, Sean was poisoned by polonium and he teamed up with Luke (Anthony Geary) to track down the man who extorted millions for the cure, while Anna repeatedly got in contact with that man to get the medicine her father so desperately needed.

John Reilly passed away back in January 2021.  The talented actor first appeared on GH back in 1984 and last appeared on the daytime drama series back in 2013.

So, looking forward to seeing Caitlyn playing Sean and Tiffany’s daughter? Comment below.

Lynn Herring Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Her General Hospital Debut; and ‘We Love Lucy’

Today, April 11th marks the 35th anniversary of the debut of Lynn Herring on General Hospital as Lucy Coe.  And wow, when you look at the road this character has gone on played to the hilt by Herring, it has been one entertaining ride for GH fans along the way.

Lucy started out as a mousy librarian, if you can believe that! And of course, she eventually showed all that she was a bombshell.  She then became quite the schemer and seductress.

Along the way, Lucy was married to Alan Quartermaine (Stuart Damon), was involved with Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) and other men in Port Charles.

 

At one point, Herring took the character of Lucy to the now defunct Port Charles where she stayed from 1997-2003,

But this one time gold-digger eventually became the champion of the GH Nurses’ Ball and helped raise awareness and funds for HIV/AIDS research. Now, year after year, the one thing you can always look forward to is Herring’s hilarious antics and sincerity in her star turn as the emcee of the annual fundraising event.

On Sunday, the GH tweeted posted: “Lucy Coe knows everything about everyone in Port Charles and we would be lost without her. Please help us congratulate TheLynnHerring on the 35th Anniversary of her #GH debut”. 

Lynn responded sharing: “Thank you! Have loved every @GeneralHospital  moment!”

Share your congratulations to Lynn via the comment section below, and let us know your favorite Lucy moment too!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: “I’m Alexis Davis, and I’m a Fighter, and an Idealist, and an Advocate”; Nancy Lee Grahn Gives Masterful Performance In Special Episode

When you combine superb direction, writing, production, and acting in a special episode of a daytime drama, viewers can see and understand the thought and care that went into it.

This was more than on display during Thursday’s highly-anticipated ‘Alexis-Centric’ episode honoring the 25th anniversary of Alexis’ portrayer, two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Nancy Lee Grahn, on General Hospital.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, symbolism was apparent and used for dramatic impact and it worked beautifully throughout, and best of all, Nancy received a script worthy of her immeasurable talents, and showed us once again why she remains one of the gold standards of our genre.  If you have not seen the episode DO NOT read any further as it contains spoilers.

It begins with an emotional Alexis looking at her mother’s watch which was still frozen from the time of her death.  While playing one of her mother’s records very loudly, she recalls Mikkos Cassadine kissing and dancing with her mom as a young Alexis (Natasha) looked on from the staircase.  When Sam asks her about it, Alexis shares that she sees the watch as sort of a representation for her own life being frozen over the last three years; which has included Alexis’ battle with booze taking over her life and her being disbarred, when being a lawyer was the way she identified herself and what gave her purpose.

Overwhelmed and anxiety-ridden, Alexis hightails it to Kevin’s office for a therapy session knowing she is going to Pentonville in the morning to serve her sentence.  She says she does not know who she is anymore.  Then, Kevin asks her how she spent her day thus far.  She flashes back to lunch with the good men in her life, Finn, Valentin, Jax and Ned.  Valentin tells Alexis she is proud of her for honing up to her mistakes.

Back at the therapy session, Alexis she was an attorney who stood for something and her life has derailed, and that she was a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate.  She knows she has to find a purpose in prison to make it through the three-year term and asks Kevin to help her find one.

Kevin wants to go back to when she was a little girl and her memories that are flooding back to her of Mikkos and her mother.  Just then, the younger version of Alexis is huddled in the corner of Kevin’s office, an image of her from the past.  Alexis tries to come to terms with her father and the choice of dangerous men and relationships that have marred her own happiness  … recalling Julian holding a knife to her throat like Mikkos did to her mother. She says he was one of the toxic men in her life, but Kevin reminds her all of the men in her life were not toxic.

Alexis starts with Ned as one who was good for her saying he was always stable, but she ruined that by recently sleeping with him and putting a wedge in his marriage to her long-time friend, Olivia.

We then flashback to earlier in the day, where Alexis ends up in an almost confrontation with Olivia.  However, Olivia tells her she misses the Alexis Davis she used to be and to get her back.

Now back with Kevin, a guilt-ridden Alexis relays she feels responsible for Neil’s death.  Kevin interjects she is not, nor what happened with Julian.  When Kevin attempts to bring up Mikkos again, Alexis rejects it and is angry that he is making her problem about daddy issues; like so many other women.  She vehemently shouts that the men in her life do not define who she is.

Then, Alexis flashes back to hurtful memories she has buried of a young Natasha witnessing Mikkos calling her mother a “greedy little bitch”.  She recalls it was on Christmas Eve and that Mikkos stopped by to give them gifts. That is when he presented her mother with the watch.  However, things took an ugly turn when he tried to leave, and she threatened to tell Helena all about her and Natasha. Next, Mikkos slapped her and that is when the watch shattered. As all this was going down, a young Natasha watched from the stairs and was horrified that she couldn’t stop her father from beating her mother and remembers how helpless she felt.

However, Alexis reveals to Kevin she thought this would be the last of Mikkos coming by, but he returned on New Year’s Eve and her mother took him back into their lives.  Alexis is beside herself that she could not protect her mother, but Kevin reassures her to remember she was just a child.

Courtesy/ABC

It is then we come to the crux of the story.  Alexis looks over in the corner and sees her younger self crying. She goes to her younger self and tells her nothing that happened was her fault, and that their father was damaged and cruel. She tells the young Natasha this shouldn’t have been her burden to carry alone, and that she deserves to be happy. Then in the moment of strength and coming full circle, Alexis introduces herself to the young Natasha, “I’m Alexis Davis, a fighter, an advocate, and an idealist … and I will take care of everything from her on out.”  In that moment, Alexis embraced herself, and forgave herself, so she could move on with her life.

Alexis then flashes back to earlier that night, as the Davis girls gather for a faux graduation ceremony so Alexis could see Molly in her cap and gown and they hug. Back in her session, Kevin remarks that Alexis has repeatedly defined herself as a fighter, an idealist, and an advocate, and reminds her she has three daughters who have those qualities, and that all she needs to be is Alexis Davis.

Then, we get a heart-warming montage of Alexis though the years in honor of Nancy’s 25th anniversary with GH.

Courtesy/ABC

As the episode concludes, it is the next morning, and Alexis enters Pentonville and enters her jail cell. There she meets her fellow inmate, who is studying law books to prep for her upcoming parole hearing. Alexis introduces herself as “Alexis Davis” and as someone who can help her.  We then go back to her mother’s watch which now begins ticking at Alexis’ home.  The show fades to black.

Kudos to Daytime Emmy winner, Phideaux Xavier for his outstanding direction, head writers: Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor and script writer, Scott Sickles for the thoughtful episode, EP Frank Valentini and his production crew for putting it all together, and the one and only Nancy Lee Grahn for a performance that will be remembered as a classic.
