Some revealing news this evening from E Online!  The entertainment outlet have the inside scoop that none other than former General Hospital star, Antonio Sabato Jr. (Ex-Jagger Cates) will be announced as part of the celebrity cast in this season’s Dancing with the Stars!

While the full cast disclosure will not be revealed until next week on the September 4th broadcast of Good Morning America, this bit of Intel puts the sexy Sabato Jr. in line to get the votes from soap fans, and those who remember him from his Calvin Klein model days, and various other television roles including Melrose Place and The Bold and the Beautiful!

The question is; just who will Antonio’s professional dance partner?  Will it be Cheryl Burke, Witney Carson, Allison Holker, Peta Murgatroyd or Karina Smirnoff, all of who have been previously announced as competing this season.

Meanwhile, Antonio has a new design show series about to debut:  Fix It and Finish It about a team of contractors and designers in different cities giving homes, cabins and even RVs much needed makeovers.  The show is syndicated and will premiere in different markets beginning on September 8th!

The new season of ABC’s ballroom dance competition Dancing with the Stars begins on Monday night, September 15th starting at 8PMET!

So do you think Antonio will do well on DWTS? Who do you hope he is paired with as his dance partner?  Let us know!

Good, DWTS is on ABC. Maybe Jagger Cates is headed back to PC?

The daytime vote did not seem to help Jack Wagner. Was surprised. He could gone much further if the daytime fans had bothered to vote!

some actors are better at dancing than others… I guess I was surprised that Jack wasn’t better at dancing… maybe he was 20 years ago.

I’d like them to bring on Kamar de los Reyes (he played Antonio Vega on TV version of One Life to Live). Kamar frequently danced on OLTL, so I know he’d be great candidate for DWTS.

I don’t know if Antonio Sabato Jr. can dance or not… but he was always nice to watch! 😉

The idea is to get celebrities that are NOT great dancers lol. However, some obviously have more experience than others, to the point where they should not be allowed on the show!!!!!

Jack’s dancing was good enough to go further in the competition. He just didn’t have enough daytime fans turn out out for the vote. What a shame.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Nina Has a Feeling She Has ‘A Daughter Out There’

The latest promo for this week’s episodes of General Hospital has been released and from the looks of it – and a key episode set to air on Wednesday April 8th – the mystery surrounding if Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) biological daughter is alive, and if so who is it, looks to be kicking into high gear.

There is that necklace that Nina is looking at in the promo, Nelle (Chloe Lanier) who seemingly now is being given an opportunity to work with Nina thus getting closer to her who notices the necklace, and then there is Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), who many have thought could actually be Nina’s daughter given their original tense relationship.

And coming up on Wednesday, look for a special episode where the show looks at Carly’s (Laura Wright) past with her adoptive parents Frank and Virginia Benson before she came to Port Charles in 1996.

Look for Eden McCoy (Josslyn) to play a young Carly, Cynthia Watros to play Virginia, James Patrick Stuart to play Valentin, and Willa Rose to play a young Nelle.  What will we learn from that episode?

Now below watch the latest teaser from GH, and let us know if you think Nina will finally figure out who her real bio-daughter is via the comment section below.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
