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 OF OUR LIVES: Marlena Becomes Possessed … Again!

On Tuesday’s episode of Days of our Lives, the devil had his way with his favorite person, Dr. Marlena Evans (Deidre Hall)! In story, leave it to Marlena to save Doug (Bill Hayes) by giving herself up to Satan!

As Doug revealed himself to be Satan while in a therapy session with Marlena in her office, a shook Marlena tries to comprehend what is happening! When the devil says if Marlena won’t accept him in, she will punish Doug, he does just that.

Poor Doug is left writhing in pain and on the floor, crying out for help! When we come back to the scene Marlena is not exactly right near his body, but sort of overlooking what is happening. Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) rushes into Marlena’s office to find Doug as Marlena stares blankly. Eventually, she calls for help.

After Doug is put in a hospital room and is monitored, Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) and Tripp (Lucas Adams) can’t find anything wrong with him. Meanwhile, Julie finds Marlena at the nurses station and asks what happened with Doug during their therapy session.  Marlena flashes back to what led to Doug writing on the floor, and clearly something is way off with Marlena, because she has now become possessed.

Later, Julie sits by Doug’s hospital bed as he opens his eyes, as he tells his beloved wife, “He left me and went in to her.”  A confused Julie is left to ponder what on earth Doug could be talking about.

When Marlena comes home to John (Drake Hogestyn) – who is already concerned with Johnny (Carson Boatman) being set on making a movie of Sami’s life story which includes points on Marlena’s original possession – she tells him Doug collapsed in her office. When the two hug, Marlena slowly opens her eyes  revealing that they are glowing yellow.  Yup! We are off to the races. Marlena is now once again possessed.

So, what did you think about the scenes between Deidre Hall and Bill Hayes? Are you enjoying the revisiting of the infamous ‘possession’ storyline thus far? Comment below.

Days of our Lives Kicks-Off Possession Storyline Revisted with ‘Doug’ Twist Cliffhanger, Followed by Fall Preview

Did the ‘Devil’ make them do it? Doug Williams  (Bill Hayes) is Satan? In what can only be described as major surprise twist on NBC’s Days of our Lives, for weeks, fans have thought they were about to embark on another dementia or Alzheimer’s storyline on the soaps with another beloved character.

However, Days head writer, Ron Carlivati ,and his writing team came up with a way to make it seem like this may be Doug’s fate only to use the long-running character as the impetus to bring the classic possession storyline back on the air some 25 years later.

It all goes down after Kayla (Mary Beth Evans) calls Marlena (Deidre Hall) to ask him to see Doug, after his MRI and other tests proved inconclusive for dementia, etc, to see if Dr. Evans can assess him.  The phone call to Marlena happened after John (Drake Hogestyn) was discussing the past, since Johnny (Carson Boatman) is ramping up to a shoot a movie on Sami’s life, that will include the time that Sami walked in on John and Marlena having sex, which caused Sami to act out for years and years.

 

However, and this is key, John tells Marlena that moment in time also left her alone and vulnerable to the darkest time in her life – alluding to when she became possessed by the devil – and Marlena was clearly having difficulty admitting that or going down that road of remembrance, when the phone call from Kayla saved her from digging deeper into the past.  Well now, John and Marlena may never have that conversation as she is primed to once again become possessed.

Meanwhile, Johnny is reading Will’s script for the Sami movie, and is shocked to read in it that Marlena was once possessed by the devil, as John takes out a dusty box with his Father John collar, a bible, and a news clipping of Marlena being possessed.  John is feeling that this movie will bring bad things on to all those he loves, especially Doc, and he looks to be right!

Now at her office with Doug, he admits he knows something is wrong.  He acts out and does strange things and does not know why.  Marlena brings up why Doug locked Julie (Susan Seaforth Hayes) in a freezer by accident. Doug gets adamant saying: “That was no accident. I locked that bitch in there on purpose.”  Marlena is shocked at his word and tone.  Then as Doug laughs, he says, “I’m not Doug.”  Next thing you know, the lowered voice of Satan comes out of Doug’s mouth and he tells Doc, “It’s been over 25 years Marlena. But did you really think I wouldn’t come back for you?” End of episode.  Great cliffhanger!

Now, check out the fall preview released following the airing of Friday’s episode by NBC below, which teases more demonic moments on Days. Then let us know in the comment section, what you thought of the ‘Doug’ twist as the possession storyline begins?

Plus, make sure to cast your vote in ‘Michael’s Poll’ of the week on the revisiting of this classic tale now in 2021 below the preview.
