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 »

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

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’

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… 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 »

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.

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.

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.

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? 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!

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 »

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

Courtesy/ABC

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Courtesy/ABC

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

Courtesy/ABC

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

Courtesy/ABC

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
