That is so cool! Now, only if ABC would show a promo of “GH” during “Dancing with the Stars”

I agree. GH is hot! ABC shoud promote this potential gold mine. If ABC put in only a fraction the money they used promoting horrible shows like the Chew, Revolution, and Katie the rating would be way over the top and could have the ratings potential of their former glory days in the eighties. What a waste of twenty million for Katie’s salary. They could have put a fraction of that into the soaps. Imagine what they could do with a decent budget!!!!

Didn’t Susan Lucci’s dance partner, Tony, turn up on AMC for a couple scenes? Seems like he did…

That’s ABC for you…always cross-promoting their shows!

Well the TPTB on both shows certainly know how to milk the cash cow. DWTS will promote this appearance on their show, for they shamelessly plug every ABC show they can. No doubt they are hoping some DWTS fans will turn in to GH to see him there. Also they are hoping GH fans who don’t watch DWTS might be tempted to begin once they see this handsome hunk on their screen and want more of him. It is win win for the network. It doesn’t matter if he can act because the money is filming him without his shirt, which is sure to happen since his scene is in a gym.

Robert,

This makes PERFECT sense. Noone is saying that Val will become a regular, much less a recurring character. But, the fact remains that GH STILL needs viewers-and if they can get DWTS fans that aren’t GH viewers to tune in, all the better for everyone

I do love Val and Kelly together – Val could be John’s new competition for Sam lol – and then, Jason could return. I’d love it, I truly would.

Actually, I really do love Val way more than AJ, too, now that I think about it – hmmmm….

I only watched this season of DWTS because I was back watching GH after OLTL was cancelled, and I really like Kelly. But from what Val shows in the behind the scene with Kelly, it certainly seems that he probably can act as well as he can dance.
I would love to see him become a regular on GH if he has the time. What a great looking Cassadine he could play !!

Yes I am happy to see him make an appearance.

Oh please! What’s with all you moaning about it making no sense or taking time away from other characters. All soaps feature some sort of celebrity appearances. CBS has brought on winners of Big Brother to B&B. Sports players pop up on their favorite soaps all the time too. With all the great stuff happening on GH now, it’s so funny to read that people are bitching and moaning over this! BTW, has anyone seen Val??? He’s pretty easy on the eyes.

Let him come on and choreograph a big production number for the Nurses Ball. And bring his hot brother Max with him.

Dominic Zamprogna Making A Return To General Hospital

After posting a photo from an empty dressing room, Dominic Zamprogna certainly had General Hospital fans interest piqued!  Turns out, Zamprogna is back shooting at the ABC daytime drama series for what it appears to be a short appearance and reprising his role as Dante Falconeri.

As fans know, Dominic departed GH in 2018, after 9 years in the role.  In the photo he posted on social media, Zamprogna is in one of GH’s temporary dressing rooms for the day.  His original dressing room was re-assigned to Josh Swickard (Chase), when Dom exited the show.

The last time viewers saw Dante was in the Sonny-centric episode; where Dante is the mobster and Sonny is by the book.

In current GH story, the character of Dante has been recently mentioned following his wife, Lulu (Emme Rylan) being stabbed by serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom).  Dante’s parents, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) also discussed his whereabouts. Dante had gone undercover on a major case after leaving Port Charles.

From all reports, it seems that Dominic is making a short return, but it will be more than just a one-day stint.  So, stay tuned.

So, will Dante return to Lulu’s side? Do you hope Dominic’s return means more down the line? Comment below.

TONIGHT: GH’s Maurice Benard As John Gotti In Lifetime’s ‘Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter’

Fans and colleagues of Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) have been eagerly waiting to see the General Hospital star take on the role of famous mobster, John Gotti. Well, tonight (February 9th) is the night!  Make sure to watch the Daytime Emmy-winner in Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter on Lifetime at 8pmEST/7CST.

In the log lines for the movie. it relates: “Executive produced by Victoria Gotti herself, the movie takes us deep into the world of what it was really like to grow up as the daughter of mob boss John Gotti, revealing the glamour, glitz and unique hardships of her world.  Sharing never-before-revealed stories about her life, Victoria (Chelsea Frei) tells of a sensitive child growing up with a beloved father (Maurice Benard) she worried about constantly; the tragedy of her younger brother’s death; and her turbulent romance, forbidden by her father, with the man who later became her husband.  Victoria had a front-row seat to a life the world became fascinated with, all while trying to reconcile the loving father she adored with a man the outside world was determined to bring down. . The film is based on Gotti’s book This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti.  Victoria Gotti will appear on camera narrating.

Benard spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth about taking on the role and wanting to get the performance just right, where he expressed: “That’s up to the audience to decide.  I played him like a real-life guy who’s loyal to his people and loves his family — and that’s kind of what the story is about. It’s through Victoria’s eyes and told with complete compassion.”

As to how playing Gotti compared to his role as Port Charles’ loveable mobster, Sonny Corinthos, Maurice added: “When I was shooting the role, I didn’t really know how different it was from Sonny. But my last day, I wrapped at about 1 in the morning in Canada, flew back and went straight to work as Sonny. I remember shooting the scene and thinking, ‘Wow, Sonny’s in about second gear, Gotti’s in about fourth or fifth gear!’ It’s two different energies.”

Check out the promo for tonight’s Lifetime Movie starring Maurice as John Gotti below, and the let us know if you will be watching, and if you caught it, what you thought of Maurice’s performance, and the movie via the comment section below.
