DWTS All-Stars Results: GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy SAFE! Marini and Alley Voted Off!

The power of the soap fans and fan bases are key to the success and failure of this year’s highly competitive season of Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars and it was certainly made clearer last night on the Results Show!

In a nail-biter of a moment, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were standing along side Kirstie Alley and Val’s older brother, Maxim, with one couple going home …  and that couple was revealed to be Kirstie and Maxs, meaning that Kelly and Val have made into the semi-finals next week!

Now the fact that last night featured a double elimination made almost every couple vulnerable, but when came time to the second results of the night, that had Apolo Anton Ohno and Kirina Smirnoff  standing alongside Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd with one couple being booted off.  As it turned out, the results had one of the heavy favorites having danced his last dance as Marini was voted out!   Of note real-life couple Maxim Chmerkovskiy and Peta Murgatroyd both ended their side of the competition when their stars were given the heave-ho.

That leaves five couples in the competition for the semi-final round which is going to feature another round of oddball dance routines.  One again each couple, chose next week’s dance combo for  one another.   And here is what we will be watching the remaining duos perform:  Melissa and Tony: “Caveman” Hustle, Shawn and Derek: “Knight Rider” Banghra, Apolo and Karina: “Big Top” Jazz  Emmitt and Cheryl: “Espionage” Lindy Hop and Kelly and Val: “Surfer” Flamenco.

Ok soapers, did the right couples go home last night?  Will you be there in force next week and keep Kelly Monaco and Val in the running in a very critical week of competition?  Let us know!

Yes Kirstie should have gone home. I thought the second elimination might be Emmitt. I am a Kelly and Apolo fan. So I was happy they were spared. Also tony and Melissa are doing fantastic. Those are the three I want in the finals.

I will be watching and voting for Val and Kelly next week. I was sorry to see Gilles go last night!

Gilles went home Really? Glad Kelly gets to stay but Gilles should’ ve stayed. Max n Peta? Hmmmm

I think Kirstie had reached the end of her rope. But I think Gilles was a better dancer than Emmett (by far). I actually think Emmett is the weakest dancer left. Overall all I think Shawn & Melissa should be in the finals…as for…as…

Emmett- I don’t think his body of dancing is up to snuff and he shouldn’t advance.

Apolo – He has had some up and down performances. Some have been good others..not so much…last time I was really wowed with one of his performances that was back when he did the quickstep. His trio was fun…but a grease lightning jive has been done to death on DWTS so it didn’t feel fresh and new…still good though. Karina is pushing him so there doesn’t seem to be alot of joy in the rehersal room. They have to put a concerted effort forward to have the appearance of chemistry but it doesn’t seem like it comes natural to them.

Kelly – my home girl. When she is on she is right up there (paso, contemporary, fusion, jive trio) she is right up there with the top ladies. But when she is a little off the judges cut her no slack. Even on an off day she is much better than Emmett and on par with Apolo depending on the dance. What she can do better than everyone else is really perform her dance and emote. Val should captalize on that and set her apart. It is no surprise to me that her best dances were the one’s where emotion was needed to sell the performance.

Go Team Vally!

I personally think that Emmitt should have gone home with Kirstie not Gilles, but there can only be one winner now so it will be sad to see a favorite go each week.

I think Kelly danced fabo!….I think she will do great next week!

She has the flamenco dance next week!!

ALL VOTES FOR KELLY!!

First off his named is spelled Maks, not Max–and it was about time he and Kristie went home. Gilles peaked too earlier, but Melissa is on fire. I am hoping Kelly can win it, not because I’m a GH fan, but because to me it would be way cool if the first winner of DWTS won the all star season. Unfortunately I think Shawn will win, which is a shame because her pro has already won three mirror ball trophies, so it will be a real bore if he won it again.

I’m so happy for Kelly!! I think she has been amazing!! Go #TeamVally!!

Kristie and Emmitt need to go!! Kristie was horrible. I am all for supporting Plus size gals but we need to find one who can dance up to par. Giles should not have gone home especially if Kristie is still in the race.

what??? How did Gilles get knocked out????
Happy for Kelly and Val but Gilles should still be there!

5. Apolo
4. Shawn
3.Emmit
2/1 Melissa & Kelly – TIE… haven’t decided yet… cause I like Tony so much…. he just seems like a nice guy…. his eyes/that twinkle.

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.
