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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
