Tonight is the night for soap fans to back their gal, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) as she begins her battle to win her second Mirror Ball Trophy in the hotly contested Dancing with the Stars: All- Stars edition that starts at 8PMEST/7CST on ABC!

And while Kelly is prepping tonight’s routine with her new partner, Val Chmerkovskiy, DWTS executive producer, Conrad Green came forward and in an exclusive with TV Guide, revealing why he partnered the celebs with certain dancers, and the rule changes for this edition of DWTS that could possibly influence the outcome.  Or, does it?

Green, said of the Kelly and Val pairing,  especially since Kelly was the shows first season champ:  “It wasn’t even high-def when Kelly did it! (Laughs)  Kelly and Val are getting on real well and I think they’re both very determined to make it far, especially Kelly.  She’s gonna have to work that hard to keep up with the level of competition. That’s part of the challenge she’s embraced. But no matter what happens on this season, you always have your place in the Dancing pantheon.”

There are also some tweaks to the rule for the All-Star edition of the ballroom dance competition:  Celebrities will be creative directors of a dance for a week, for which they’ll come up with the theme and wardrobe, pick the music and all but choreograph their routine. Gone is the Dance Duel, which was introduced last season to prevent a Sabrina Bryan-like shocking elimination (though Green allows that it may return in a normal season) and in is a temporary scoring system emphasizing technique. “We’re thinking about having Len Goodman, give a couple of extra points to the celebrity who did the best technical dance of the night,” Green says. “It’s an extra boost; it’s not a punishment for everyone else. We’ll tweak scoring here and there to make sure there’s a bit more discipline and content in there, given that these people have done the show before.”

Now after the jump, watch a video interview with Kelly from KABC in Los Angeles on tackling Dancing and GH at the same time, and then let us know if you think Kelly stands a good chance at placing near the top of the leaderboard as she begins the competition tonight!

I love Kelly Monaco. I watched her the first time around and YES, I voted for her. She was one of the BEST dancer’s last night as well. She seemed like she slimmed down a bit, probably from all the rehearsing, which has so much more ahead, She doesn’t need to lose weight, however. Therefore she should drink some GAIN WEIGHT SHACKS so to not lose that NICE figure she has. MOVING FORWARD: I have watched Katie Couric’s talk show, unintentional. Now in fairness to Katie, she is a likeable personality type (that’s just the truth). On the other hand,… Read more »

Oh yeah, they have half points this time, which makes the competition closer, but in the end, what difference does that make if America is voting? The first half is just a popularity contest really, until it gets down to the really good dancers after the people who can’t dance are eliminated. My DISH coworker thinks the show is fixed, but I’m not so sure. I’m just glad that I can watch it in less time now that I watch commercial free with Auto Hop on my PrimeTime Anytime recordings. That way I have time to watch another show and… Read more »

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
