DWTS All-Stars Results Show: GH's Kelly Monaco Lands in Bottom Three! But She Will Dance Again Next Week!

In a shocking Dancing with the Stars All-Stars Results Show tonight, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy ended up in the Bottom Three.  During the announcement of Monaco’s results, she was standing next to Bristol Palin who got the lowest score from the judges last night, and is clearly not the caliber of dancer of many of the celebrity contestants.  And, when it came down to Monaco or Palin ending up in the bottom three, it was Palin who was safe and Monaco who was in jeopardy of going home.  We can only imagine the cringe from Monaco’s on-screen mother, Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis Davis) when thinking of Bristol besting Kelly!

After Kelly was announced to be in the bottom three for the night, so too was another former dance champ, Helio Castroneves and partner, Chelsie Hightower, and Joey Fantone and partner, Kym Johnson!  At the end of the Results Show, it was revealed that Kelly Monaco was safe, while Joey and Helio were the actual bottom two, with Joey and Kym getting the final boot!

What do you think of Bristol Palin being safe while Kelly landed in the bottom three? Weigh-in!

Michael, after tonight I honestly believe the voting is rigged. No way in the world would kelly be in the bottom 3 and Bristol safe. She was horrible. I was actually at the taping on Monday night and it may have not been Kelly’s best dance but was beat the pants off Bristol.You are right in you comments. Bristol was clumsy and could not dance. Give me a break. There was something wrong with that picture. The show may get picketed if Bristol wins over Kelly.

I felt the same way the last time Bristol was on the show… I think they give too much points for home voters, andit was obvious that her momma must have wrangled every Republican to vote for her daughter, even if others deserved the votes more — like Brandy! She was really really good and I thought she’d be in the final 3 and I it was horrible when they said Bristol was safe and Brandy was going home. And you could just see that poor girl’s face – she knew she was much better and she was just crushed.… Read more »

oh, and next week is going to be bad if Bristol stays in after they let TWO couples go.

so remember when you’re voting to vote for the underdogs you want to stay on the most, plus the people that are doing the best. I really like Gille (?) he’s doing just awesome!

If that is how the votes came out so be it. I know some people are flipping out over this, like Kelly being on here can save GH. It is doing great so I don’t know if it has to be saved. I think originally it was meant for people to vote for who they thought had danced the best. Yet I’m sure the shows producers knew people would vote for their favorites regardless of how they did. I greatly object to politics being brought into it. First it’s vote for Kelly for GH’s sake. Then it became vote because… Read more »

Great post, and I agree 100%! If Kelly dances the best, I’ll vote for her. Right now, I feel others are doing better, and they’ll receive my vote.

Exactly, not only is it a competition, but a competition for entertainment purposes not the Olympics for ballroom dancing. The producers say it year after year if you want someone to stay on the show vote for them, if you don’t vote, don’t complain if they get knock off. Also some people are not voting for the celebrity, the pro dancers have their fans too, maybe Mark fans are helping Bristol’s numbers. But like you said, it is not life or death, it all for fun (for us) and profit (for the network.)

I don’t really think Kelly was in the bottom 3..I think it was a fake out..How Bristol was safe & Joey went home is beyond me bc she’s by far the worse dancer on there. Not to mention I cringe and get filled w/ rage when I see her or her mother lmao.

Kelly wasn’t necessarily in the bottom 3 in voting. The couple that is SAFE in the bottom 3 could have had the highest votes. The bottom TWO is the only “real” indication of public voting. The third couple is just a red herring, if you will. I truly believe this is a ploy by ABC to freak people out so that they will vote for Kelly. I hope it doesn’t back-fire on them and we lose a couple that deserves to go further in the competition. Kelly is dancing well enough without their “help” IMO.

I understand how the “bottom three” works, but lots of people don’t. Thanks for explaining so well.

This is what happened during the original season that Bristol Palin was on. She can’t dance, but followers of her mother pump up the voting totals until near the very end when the judges finally gave her such very low scores that she had to lose before the finals for that season. It was a huge “scandal” that season, I expect the same thing will happen again this season. Where Bristol is concerned, talent has nothing to do with it.

This is the VERY reason they SHOULD NOT HAVE had Bristol on, IF they wanted a REAL dance-off and All Star Show, (they knew how the Tea Party fixed/ unbalance other show Bristol was on) they WOULD NOT of never had Bristol on for THIS TYPE of show. HERE’S THE THING: The show didn’t care WHO (the other dances) was affended/ hurt by a SUDDEN ” vote off”, just as long as they had the extra-viewership that Bristol and the Tea Party would draw in. Thats’ just Wrong, Wrong, wrong. People are there to ” defend” their title to ”… Read more »

This show is a combination of talent and popluarity. Both Kristie Alley and Bristol Palin did well on their respective seasons not because they were the best dancers, but they had a large fan base. Joey went home because his fan base is smaller. He hasn’t been on the show for a while, wherins both KA and BP are in viewer’s recent memories. Kelly was on the first season and this show really took off about season 4 so many viewers never saw her season. I’m sure she has a good group fans from GH, but she has to win… Read more »

Kelly is simply not that good.
The others were better..
Perhaps Kelly will do better in the next round..

DWTS is an awesome show. Voters for their favorite because they are loyal ones and because they truely want them to contiue. Bristol was the lowest scored before voting results were in. If anyone should have gone home it should have been here. The show and votes don’t work that way. As for Kelly Monoco she has said she is in this not just to win but prove she can do it. If she dances bad and kicked off she will accept that I am sure. She is gracious and compassionate. She had one bad night and admitted the rehersal… Read more »

Bristil staying around longer than she she is going to f**k up the show…. Kelly’s dance was beautiful, she posture was fantastic. I don’t knw why U say she had a bad night, I don’t think so. Her night was FAR better than some of those other dancer’s. I know the show likes te Drama, but when a person SHOULD go home and doesn’t, it screws up the crediability and authenticy of what he show is about: The dance and the judging. You know?

She wasn’t in the bottom 3. The final two were the bottom 2, but the third person is just put there to cause drama. Glad she is still in there.

And ya know, leave Nancy out of it. It’s obvious that is put there because Nancy is a Democrat and Palin is a Republican.

I agree, I don’t think Kelly was really in the bottom 3, I think DWTS does that for the drama & I can’t believe that Bristol is still there. You go KELLY, you’re doing GREAT. Your Philadelphia fans are cheering you on!!!

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.

Lauren Dow, the wide of Tony Dow, best-known of his role of Wally Cleaver – the All-American older brother of “Beaver” Cleaver (Jerry Mathers) on the TV sitcom, Leave it to Beaver, shares that he is still alive amid previous reports of his passing early today.

Now comes word from Lauren to ABC7 in Los Angeles, that her husband is still breathing, but is in hospice care in their home.  She admitted that based on some health issues that happened overnight, she inferred that Tony had passed away when she informed people close to her and the family.
