DWTS All-Stars Results: GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy are SAFE! Bristol Palin Is Finally Sent Packing!



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!

I don’t care who went home as long as Kelly is Safe. Keep VOING for TEAM VALLY!!!!

I agree…no more JaSam now ValKel lol….But I love jason & sam & GH but Val & Kelly so much more.

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 next move and step and that is dancing. Go team Kelly and Val!!! All us PA., are cheering you on!!! Hopefully, all of your fans were able to vote for you for the judges weren’t on your side the past two week and look when Paula was a judge, listen to their comments that evening. Hopefully, Hurricane Sandy didn’t effect your fans voting!!! Good luck!!!

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.

Good morning. I got post message in regards of my post a few weeks ago and here it is.

You can see more information for the comment on this post here:

Kelly looked like Bell from Beauty And The Beast, simply lovely and charming.

Watch the show last night and I think you will have a change of heart for they were outstanding and it showed just how Kelly can dance any dance given to her and Val and Louie were fantastic (all three deserved 3/10’s)!!! She is what the show DWTS is about she has improved each week and can dance to anything with all the qualitites that it takes to win the trophy! VOTE! VOTE! VOTE!!! GO TEAM KELLY AND VAL, FROM YOU FAN HERE IN GOOD OLD PA.!!!

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 watch their comments and movements of them interrupting the dance.

Am I the only one wondering….Are Kelly & Val a little more than Dance partners….Love the chemistry.

I’m definitely wondering the same thing! That passion before, during and after the dance looked very, very real :))

It’s all part of the act people. Kelly’s boyfriend is sitting in the audience.

he was in the audience but he was not smiling at all…………..ijs

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.

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’

I am glad hat Kelly and Val are safe, and that Bristol has left

Glad Bristol went home. She should have gone home the first week – she’s no match for the talent that is out there. Sorry but Kirstie & Maks s/b next.

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 was just plain wrong!

Kristie is doing a great job, but I’m sure she’s in the running for leaving soon too.

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

should read above in line 3 “who makes the most…”

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 them, yet soap journalists NEVER write about it. She gets off on account of free speech, but a certain DAYS actress does not? Way to be balanced and fair. I’m not trying to open a can of worms, and I’m not even saying I agree with the latter actress but the hypocrisy by Daytime Confidential, Soap City, Soap Central, Nelson Branco, yes even Michael Fairman (who was better than posting the story last summer) actors and fans alike is enough to make me want to rip my hair out.

They say there’s no media bias. YEAH RIGHT!

Sorry, rant over.

Not judging, not a hater, but I think out of all dances she was the worst and was almost sorry to watch at times. Fan base is great, but let the dances win not a popularity contest.

Yes you are .No she wasn’t and yes it is.

Thank god you’re not a PROFESSIONAL judge like the rest of them.

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 to dance if you get enough people to vote for you, even if you can’t dance as well as everyone else and the judges rate you low” show!

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.

You are correct.

Excited they finally got rid of Palin – yes, she should of gone home Week #1. Val & Kelly have their work cut out for them, they should be in top 4! The top 4 are all pretty even!

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.

It is painful to watch Kirstie Alley

Way past her time to go!

oh, i bet it must be a left-wing conspiracy ordained by those pesky left-wingers so jealous of bristol’s beautiful, competent, intelligent mum.

Well,you think it’s a right wing plot that kept her on the show for 4 weeks.Right?

i wouldn’t call it a plot as such. it’s another word i’m thinking of, there, but decency forbids me from saying it 🙂

it wasn’t just these 4 weeks, but also the season she was on for many weeks…. too many for many people wanting the best Dancers to stay on as long as they could.

One of the very worst contestants in the history of the show was kept on by audience votes by idiots who watched and,inexplicably liked,her totally phony,totally repulsive reality show.

Kate Gosselin that is.

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 hollywood automatically thinks that geography makes them above and superior to the Palins. hollywood is against bullying but would gladly use bullying tactics against anyone they disagree w/ politically. take Brad Pitt’s mother as a prime example. She writes abt being against the left’s god Obama and for the traditional definition of marriage. Those are her opinions and she’s entitled to them. She then gets death threats and people tell her that gays made her son the A lister he is. Where is the civility? What happened to agreeing to disagree? What happened to cherishing diversity? The most significant kind of diversity is that of opinions! If hollywood’s A list had their own A list then Brad Pitt would be on that list. He could have issued a statement disagreeing w/ his mother’s political opinions but condemning the hateful death threats against her. But he remained silent. That tells you everything you need to know abt Hollywood. When an A lister like Brad Pitt does not even have the guts to trash the bullying tactics of lunatic hollywood lefties towards his own mother then that means everyone has to toe the line. This is exactly why the Palins are hated. They are openly for the raditional defintion of marriage. People can disagree w/ them. People can agree w/ them. But they are entitled to their opinions and beliefs. And it burns hollywood that the Palins are traditional and conservative and thus they have to be ridiculed and bullied by “tolerant” hollywood.

ditto bc

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? Nice to know dg their are still a few people out here that are not brain dead to what is going on. I have family that I sure did not intend for them not to have the some advantages I have had in life. Thanks again!

The same advantages not some. Sorry need to proofread. Lol!

16 trillion dollars national debt. Millions unemployed. Millions living under the poverty line. Millions on food stamps. Millions on U6 unemployment meaning people who have stopped looking for work. An Obama administration not operating w/ a budget. Green energy boondoggles going under while a war on coal and mining is waged. But what does the corrupt mainstream media like anderson cooper of CNN and MSNBC’s rachel MADdow and Tingles McLegthrill Chris Matthews continue to do? Why they keep bashing conservatives and republicans and they keep shilling for the democrats. Romney and the republicans have to battle the democrats and the liberal loons from the mainstream media that are completely biased! The fourth estate’s credibility has crumbled and yet the level of manipulation from the major networks and cable mainstream media is perplexing! The Romney campaign is talking abt the economy and foreign policy while they keep blabbering abt Sesame Street and keep being condescending to women w/ this binders silliness. Liberals are such idiots w/c explains the number of hollywood actors that are liberal. hollywood is already becoming less profitable and their strident rhetoric and talking down to their audience should expand the backlash against hollywood.

Thank you Jules.Well said.

By the way the obnoxious,potty-mouthed,vile,vulgar,vicious,graceless actress I referred to above is Nancy Lee Grahn.

nancy grahn is the WORST! she’s soap’s answer to ellen barkin. Didn’t nancy mock Clint Eastwood’s RNC speech? The bashing against iconic Clint from lunatic liberals were that he’s senile and old and should shut up and is like someone’s drunk uncle and other more vile tweets. Yet Clint’s empty chair routine was fantastic and resonant. He clearly was vindicated bec obama was an empty chair at the denver presidential debate. president teleprompter loves bashing the 1% yet hobnobs w/ hollywood elite who are part of the 1%! but hollywood is that stupid. they’re being bashed to their faces and they still can’t get it while they’d vote against themselves! low information voter jay z is only voting for obama bec he’s black. Yet the mainstream media says nothing. If any celebrity mentioned that they’re only voting for Romney bec he’s white then the liberal media would scream racism! Public distrust against the mainstream media hacks is at its highest now. But hollywood can never be racist right? They’re “tolerant” remember? Despite all the racism from their tv shows and films hollywood still thinks they’re liberals and therefore not racist. The public is finally pushing back against hollywood’s propaganda.

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 to give others advice.
If anything the teabaggers are bullying everyone else by enabeling the Palins to remain on TV…

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 ratings.And don;t forget it was they (the network and the producers) who dubbed Bristol a “Dancing with the Stars All-Star” and hired her for the show (yes,it;s a job)not her mother or the tea party or some right-wing conspiracy.

I hope when Kirstie is eliminated you use the same headline, just sub “Kirstie Alley” for “Bristol Palin”.

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…”

Photo: ABC

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.”

Photo: ABC

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.”

Photo: ABC

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.”

Photo: ABC

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.”

Photo: ABC

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.”

Photo: JPI

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.”

Photo: ABC

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.
