It was a riveting night of Dancing with the Stars last night! The hit ABC ballroom competition had a heavy dose of drama as four couples vied for a spot in the finals next week!

All My Children star, J.R. Martinez (Brot Monroe) had a bad week.  First, he twisted his ankle badly in rehearsal and then twisted again during the live performance.  The injury seemed to hinder him and his performance and he and his partner Karina Smirnoff fell to third place after the night with a score of 56.

The big surprise and dark horse candidate who looks to be coming on strong is none other than, Rob Kardashian! Rob wowed the judges with his relay Cha-Cha and he and partner, Cheryl Burke ended up in second place with 65 points.

Ricki Lake danced a phenomenal night of precision ballroom dancing and along with partner, Derek Hough once again were at the top of the leaderboard with a total of 67.  But it was soccer star, Hope Solo who looked the most vulnerable and weakest of the four competitors along with her partner Maks.  Bets are that she will be kicked off the final ballroom field on tonight’s Result Show.

So who do you think should win Dancing with the Stars at this point? And who should be the next go home? Let us know!

Been watching DWTS since it started, & I know a good dancer when I see it. Well, don’t understand all the cudos to Rob. He has improved since the start, but still mechanical, you can almost see him counting. Doesn’t flow or move with the music like other dancers. Still wondering how he stayed, when much better dancers got voted off. Ex: Chyna left because of one bad dance, he had never had a good dance at that point. So, why the awesome scores & comments by judges influencing voting? Especially from Carrie Ann, think she has a Kardashian crush.… Read more »

JR gets my vote as the one contestant who did not have and dancing experience, yet at this point looks the most improved of all the four remaining. Rob is ok but is as wooden as a stick. He tries, but votes should go to the one who is constant in their performance and ability to work hard and have it show week after week that is J.R. and second is Ricki.

I love JR, and think he is great, and has been since week one, BUT DWTS is about the person who starts out slow and progressively improves each week, and that is Rob! Remember Kelly Monaco in Season One, she too, started out slow and won the Season, which she deserved! I wish all three contenders good luck, as they have all earned their shot at the Mirrorball Trophy, but I say Go Rob and Cheryl!!!!!

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.
