DWTS Season Premiere! Corbin Bleu, Brant Daugherty, Amber Riley, Elizabeth Berkley Turn In Solid Performances!



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….

This is dwts best year…Snooki is boring,hope she leaves first, then itll be even better…im sick of overrated reality stars.

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’

I did not watch High School Musical so I will also associate Corbin with One Life to Live as that is when he became relavent to me!

Unbelievable dancing! This is gonna be a great season. I was so happy for them.

Nothing against this guy. Have no idea who he actually is, But I have decided to not watch this show anymore. Its so fixed its unbelievable. No more for me someone who watched all the years it was on and Voted. .I’ll pass.


Lifetime’s ‘Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas’ Brings Epic Food Fight and “Slapfest Coup de Grâce”

Get ready for the feuding soap opera divas, when five actresses known for their signature primetime and daytime roles are brought together in Lifetime’s new holiday film, Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas.

Saturday night, December 2nd on Lifetime (8pm ET/7PM CT) marks the highly-anticipated holiday movie premiere featuring: Donna Mills (ex-Knots Landing), Nicolette Sheridan (ex-Knots Landing), Morgan Fairchild (ex-Falcon Crest et al), Linda Gray (ex-Dallas) and Loni Anderson (ex-WKRP in Cincinnati).

Here’s what we do know! In story, five alums from the long-running soap, The Great Lakes reunite for a live Christmas finale. Uh-oh!  Now take a look at the backstory of the colorful cast of characters (pay special attention to the clever twists on the actresses names!)

LAUREN EWING (Linda Gray) “Everyone thinks I’m so damn good all the time,” confesses the junk food-loving Lauren of her second act as a lifestyle guru. “I don’t know how Gwenyth Paltrow does it!”

DANA CUNNINGHAM (Donna Mills) Now a sitcom mom, she’s yet to make amends to ex-bestie Juliette after abruptly leaving the soap back in the day. Not that she hasn’t tried: “When I thought the world was going to end in Y2K,” Dana says, “I reached out to her, and she never called me back.”

LILY MARLOWE (Loni Anderson) After replacing Dana on ‘Great Lakes’, Lily never again found a role to win her acclaim. “What do I have to show for (my career)? An arc on  For the People – Shonda Rhimes’ only flop!”

JULIETTE MATHESON (Nicollette Sheridan) “She left me for L.A.,” the party girl turned fashion mogul recalls of Dana’s betrayal. Will their feud derail the entire event?

MARGEAUX ROBERTS (Morgan Fairchild) “Fasten your face-lifts, ladies, it’s gonna be a bumpy weekend!” The sassy grande dame of ‘Great Lakes’ sees the Juliette-Dana beef as the perfect escape from her own domestic drama.

Now, making this all the more hysterical is the director of The Great Lakes reunion special, which makes the five women live under the same roof, is its former child star Alex, who has gotten his ex-girlfriend, Nell to direct the finale. Meanwhile, in the subplot. the ‘Ladies of the ’80s’ come up with a plan to get Alex and Nell back together.

As with any good soap opera, there is a major food fight. Linda Gray shared with USA Today ,”The food fight was one take. And it was fabulous.” And of course, their is a bitch-fest slap-fest. Morgan Fairchild revealed, “Oh honey, we all got ours in. Mine was a simple, ‘How dare you?’ with a slap. But I was hoping for a punch.”

The movie’s EP, Larry Thompson, who is a Hollywood manager and has Donna Mills as a client, said that the entire scene peaks with the”slapfest coup de grâce.” What is that exactly? That is when Donna Mills pushes Nicollette Sheridan into a pool in a nod to Dynasty’s Lily bond battle between Dynasty’s Alexis (Joan Collins) and Krystle (Linda Evans).

In case you missed it previously, check out the trailer for Ladies of the ’80s: A Divas Christmas below, also starring Patrika Darbo, Alec Mapa, Mills real-life daughter, Chloe Mills, and Christopher Atkins with theme song by Tiffany.

Now let us know, will you be tuning in to the movie for a premise that should delight many a longtime soap fan? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
