Today at the ABC Summer Press Tour for the Television Critics Association, the All-Stars were revealed of which former competitors from Dancing with the Stars would be back for its All-Star Edition.  And making it onto the ballroom dance series, and representing the soaps and GH is the fantastic Kelly Monaco (Sam), who was the original winner of season one! (And yes, the question was asked if John O’Hurley was asked back, but that seemed to be dodged by the seried EP, during the press conference!)

The All-Star cast and their professional partners will take to the stage for the season premiere of DANCING WITH THE STARS: ALL-STARS, Monday, September  24 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) followed by the premiere of DANCING WITH THE STARS THE RESULTS SHOW on Tuesday, September 25 (8:00-10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Along with Kelly, here is who made in into this highly competitive special edition! Pamela Sue Anderson, Kirstie Alley, Pamela Anderson, Helio Castroneves, Joey Fatone, Shawn Johnson,  Drew Lachey, Gilles Marini, Apolo Anton Ohno, Bristol Palin, Melissa Rycroft and Emmitt Smith.  

As announced three former competitors will compete for the last spot with the “Viewer’s Choice” selection and fans can go to ABC.com as of today and vote for the next four weeks, of who they would like to see get the final spot: Sabrina Bryan, Carson Kressley or Kyle Massey.   The three contestants competing to be the “Viewers’ Choice: All-Star” will kick-off their campaign with their first television interview live in-studio on “Good Morning America,” Monday, July 30.

Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars and Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars the Results Show return this season with new surprises and all the performance elements viewers have come to know and love. “Macy’s Stars of Dance,” featuring some of the best choreographers and performers from the different styles of dance who offer viewers performances that represent the peach of achievement in their genres, will return. The show also welcomes the return of the “AT&T Spotlight Performance,” which features and celebrates people whose lives have been changed forever by dance. AT&T is also helping the search to find these performers by allowing fans to nominate potential dancers.  Hosted by Tom Bergeron (“America’s Funniest Home Videos”) and Brooke Burke-Charvet (“Dancing with the Stars” Season Seven Champion), the celebrities perform choreographed dance routines which will be judged by renowned Ballroom judge Len Goodman and dancer/choreographers Bruno Tonioli and Carrie Ann Inaba.

Ok soapers, are you excited about Kelly Monaco getting a well-deserved slot? Now, its up to all of us to keep voting her in the competition!  What do you think about Kelly’s competition and how they might stack up against her?  Let us know!

I’m glad to see Kelly was asked to be a part of All Stars. I’m also thrilled to see Drew Lachey, who is one of my favorite winners of DWTS will also be competing. I’m rooting for both of them.

I didn’t watch last time & I won’t watch this time. I love DWS & would watch if it was on any channel but ABC. I have BOYCOTTED ABC except GH for almost a year & will continue until I see OLTL back on somewhere. ABC sold 2 shows so why can’t they sell the rights to our soaps. Cause they don’t want anyone to make money with them & prove ABC to be the idiots they are. MY opinion! ABC needs to think about their viewers or maybe they really don’t care. Bring back OLTL & viewers will come… Read more »

So many mixed emotions! LOVED the very first season and was so happy Kelly won. (Boy was O’Hurley a poor loser) Too bad no JR – maybe he has other obligations (a new baby for instance!). Will be rooting for Kelly all the way!

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

‘ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway’ Raises $130,565 For Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS In Four Day Streaming Event

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
