Last night, Dancing with the Stars debuted its 17th season with an actually stellar cast that not only brings talent and fun, but some inspirational drama to the ballroom dance floor competition, and from the looks of the opener, this looks to be quite the competitive season on the ABC series.

Soap stars did exceptionally well! So let’s start with One Life to Live’s and High School Musical favorite, Corbin Bleu!  Corbin was trending all afternoon yesterday on Twitter with #teamcorbin, and expectations were high for him in the competition and he did not disappoint! What was disappointing for soap fans is that DWTS did not mention Corbin’s association with OLTL, but given the fact that ABC is in a lawsuit with Prospect Park over OLTL, you can sort of buy the rationale.

Corbin performed with Karina Smirnoff a contemporary style dance routine, which was first for Karina after 15 seasons on the show. The judges scored them a very respectable 24!

Pretty Little Liars, and Days of our Lives guest star, Brant Daugherty and his partner Peta Murgatroyd were actually the first couple to dance, and the self-proclaimed “single threat”  shows the potential to be “double threat” after he earned a 22 from the judges showing some sexy moves in their Cha Cha and the ability to be quite a threat moving forward in the competition.

However, Glee’s Amber Riley really wowed the ballroom audience with her moves, dancing with last season’s champ, Derek Hough!  Amber who said she wanted to show girls at home that you can be a girl with some size on her and still go out and show the world you can dance had the highest total of the night with 27.

And how about former Saved by the Bell and Showgirls star, Elizabeth Berkley Lauren?  She had Val Chemerkovskiy (GH’s Kelly Monaco’s former partner) as her dance partner and they earned a 24 with a stylish Contemporary Dance.

Elsewhere, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi showed she can bust-a-move in a solid routine with Sasha Farber scoring a 23!  This duo is the shortest in stature duo ever on the show!  But it was Valerie Harper, who is dancing at age 73 after being diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, and Jack Osbourne, who is ballroom dancing for the first time who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, that really showed the inspirational spirit and power of the new season!  What about the cutaway to Jack’s mom, Sharon Osbourne in tears after watching her son’s dance performance?  Very touching!  Harper scored a 21 with her foxtrot,  and Osbourne scored a 23 with his foxtrot!

So out of the gate, what performance do you think was the best on last night’s Dancing with the Stars? Check out Corbin, Brant and Amber’s performance below! Then, who do you think should be the first to go?  Our pick to get the axe, Keyshawn Johnson!

to bad Corbin did not mention OLTL……..non of us should forget where we came from….regardless of law suites his OLTL stint was most recent therefore it should have been mentioned.
Brant, Corbin, Elizabeth, Amber were my favorites so far….

Corbin said people may know him from HS Musical and made no mention of OLTL…..wonder if ABC put a gag order on him so as not to draw attention to the legal drama. Was sad he didn’t mention OLTL and for that he does not get my vote…..even though he was the best dancer.

I’m sure he is not allowed to discuss OLTL on an ABC show,and even if he had during those pretaped interviews,it would have been edited out.

neither Corbin, or Brant…. mentioned Serials

sigh! it’s a career.

they were both quite good…..

I was pleasantly surprised… across the board…. the only one who seemed out of his element… was the football player. and Bill the science guy….

Amber, by far… is darned good.
Snooki, Nicole… was… damn… she’s got some natural that surprised me.
Jack… like his partner said… is light on his feet and with charm.

I wish the layout was the same as last year… when the “stars” were upstairs…. instead of mingling with the ‘audience’

DAYS Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes Pay Tribute to Robert Clary

Days of our Lives beloved Daytime Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, Bill and Susan Seaforth Hayes (Doug and Julie Williams), paid tribute to their longtime co-star and dear friend, Robert Clary (Ex-Robert LeClair, DAYS).

On Wednesday, Clary passed away at the age of 96.  On Days of our Lives, Bill Hayes and Robert Clary performed many times together as Doug and Robert when the soap opera had “Doug’s Place” as a nightclub venue for the characters to meet up and have story, while also taking in some music.

 

Bill and Susan shared their thoughts on Clary’s passing on their Instagram on Thursday; accompanied by some clips of performances by the characters of Doug and Robert.

The Hayes’ expressed: “Our Dear Robert Clary… Like a diamond, Robert was tough enough to survive this world and emerge brilliantly. He was so full of life… so saucy, so sassy, so superb at everything he tried. The energy and optimism that filled his 96 years was amazing to behold.  When he performed with pathos or joy, he always touched our hearts. He was an adoring husband, a firm friend, a trustworthy team player and, in crisis, deeply caring. In childhood, he had experienced humanity’s darkest days- then, as a man, filled the world with light.  His story in two words to remember: choose life. #RobertClary”

Very sad news to report.  Robert Clary, who became a soap opera fan favorite for his roles as Robert LeClair on Days of our Lives, and Pierre Roulland on The Young and the Restless has died at the age of 96.

Clary, best known to primetime fans for his role as  Cpl. Louis LeBeau, on the comedy series, Hogan Heroes, passed away on Wednesday according to his granddaughter, Kim Wright, who informed the Hollywood Reporter.  Robert was the last surviving member of the iconic cast.

Throughout his daytime career, Clary always sang in his roles and is most remembered as Doug Williams (Bill Hayes) best friend, Robert LeClair.  The two would always perform at “Doug’s Place” in story.  Clary played the role from 1972–1973, 1975–1983, and again from 1986–1987.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

On Clary’s passing, Y&R shared: “The #YR Family sends our condolences to the family and loved ones of Robert Clary known to the Y&R audiences as “Pierre” on our debut episode!” 

B&B also honored Robert by posting: The Bell Family & @BandB_CBS re sad to learn of the passing of #RobertClary, who portrayed Pierre Jourdan on @BandB_CBS from 1990-1992. Robert was a talented actor, a kind and courageous man, and a friend to all who knew him.”

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.

Clary was married for 32 years to the late Natalie Cantor, the second daughter of Eddie Cantor. She passed away in 1997.
