GH's Kelly Monaco Safe For Another Week On DWTS All-Stars! Two Former Champs Sent Home!



In last evening’s Dancing with the Stars All-Stars Results Show, General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her dance partner, Val Chmerkovskiy were announced “safe” in the double elimination round, which sent former DWTS champs, Drew Lachey and Helio Castroneves home!

What again was most shocking from a dancing stand-point, was that Bristol Palin remained in the competition over these two gents!

On next week’s episode of DWTS All-Stars, Kelly and Val will have to put together a contemporary dance routine, after each one of the couples selected a dance for the other, in another twist on this season’s competition.  In addition, Paula Abdul joins the judges table next week!

Monaco spoke to ABC Soaps In Depth after the results were announced and after she found out she would have to do a contemporary dance routine next week, stating,  “There’s not a lot of technique to it. It’s very interpretive.”

Kelly admitted she preferred to play a character in her dancing than be herself; which adds an additional wrinkle for her next week:  “I like to tell other people’s stories.  I never like to tell my story. My story’s a closed book, so it’s going to be really difficult for me to emotionally invest in something that’s me. It’s going to put me in a very vulnerable position. It’s a journey of who you are and letting it out a little bit. You think you know me. You have no idea!”

So what did you think of last night’s Results Show?  Would you have voted off Drew and Helio?  Let us know! And keep watching Kelly each week and rooting her on! Remember to vote!

I am sick of Bristol and her “luck”. How is she still on this show? I really hope we do not have a repeat of last time where she some how makes it to the final two…It is odd I kind of like her but her keep sliding by while others who are better are kicked off makes me dislike her.

Bristol isn’t lucky, the premise of the show is for viewers to vote for their favourites, not who is the best dancer. People have favourties for different reasons other than their dancing. The producers chose her for the all star season because they know she is controversial, and generates buzz for them. And I bet some vote for her just for the fun of watching her be safe while others go home. Remember this is a competition between fans as well as dancers, and whether we think it fair or not that is part of the show. Bristol’s fans beat out Drew and Helios fans fair and square. Next week who knows and that is part of the fun of watching. If you are not having fun watching,because dancers who are talented aren’t necessary the favourite go home, then maybe it is time to change the channel .

I could not disagree more with you Mary. This IS a dance competition and should be voted based on dances. I also agree with LeeAnne, it makes me question the truth behind the counts. Did you not see the other dancers standing next to her when it was reveled that she was safe? They were just as shocked as I was. I am just saying it really takes away from the show to have someone like her go home before others do.

I never said it wasn’t a dance competition, but it is a dance competition for entertainment purposes, it is not the Olympics for ball room dancing. Part of the entertainment process includes enjoying real bad dancers as well as the good ones. This isn’t the first season deserving dancers went home before not so deserving. I am not Bristol fan. I don’t think she should be there either if dancing is the only thing the producers were promoting, but they encourage viewers to vote for their favourite, they don’t say please vote for the best dancer. So I am not going blame Bristol or attack her personally as some people do just because her fans are doing what the producers say to do, which is vote for their favourite. It all for fun, it is not a serious dance competition. Everyone gets pay the same, no careers will be destroyed or made, like Idol. It is all for fun.

I just feel that for those who can dance and work their butts off to do a great performance it is unfair that she seems to slide by all the time. I am not attacking her personally either. But on that note, what has she done in the first place? I watched her “show” and was turned off by her and her views on most things. Bottom line, she can not dance and that is why I think most people watch the show entertainment or not it should be based on the dance performance.

Well that is a bit of an assumption don’t you think, implying she doesn’t work her butt off to give the best performace for her skill level. If she is indeed slacking off , not making a real effort, like Billy Ray Cyrus did a few seasons back, then yes then it is unfair that people who want to be there leave while those who don’t care stay. As I said earlier the producers chose her because she brings buzz to show, people seemed to really like her or really hate her, but either way DWTS is talked about. I respect your opinion it should be about the dancing yet experience has shown people vote for who they like regardless of talent. All I can suggest is what the producers want is for you and everyone who hates Bristol to vote for someone else and hopefully she will go home next week

I am shocked that Bristol remains on this show and makes me wonder if the votes are counted honestly. Certainly she has not been kept on because of her dancing skills. The level of competition is so high on the all star season and to be honest, I questioned whether Bristol should have been added to the cast because she definitely did not fit the “all star” definition. Helio most definitely should still be there dancing, possibly Drew as well.

I think Kelly did FABULOUS and deserved to stay. I think Drew and Helio are better than some others and should not have gone home.

I am also even more interested in seeing Kelly’s dance next week now!

I am thrilled tht Kelly and Val were safe, but considering how well they did this week, I truly hoped that the voters would be intelligent enough to keep them in the competition. Unfortunately, I had a feeling that Helio would go home, and I worried that Drew might too. I do not believe that either of them deserved to go home this week, as their performances were leaps and bounds better than some others, but sadly, there are voters out there who continually vote to keep people in who do not even belong on this All-Star Season, let alone remain in the competition longer than Helio, Drew and Joey Fatone too. Don’t get me wrong, I do see an improvement this season in how Bristol Palin dances in comparison to the last time she was on the show, and the same with Kirstie Alley, who is also so funny and entertaining (not to mention good for her for getting out there when she is a lot older than many of the all stars this season), but the perormances are to be rated on their dancing abilities, and many people do not vote that way. I understand that everyone is free to vote for whomever they choose, but way too often the best dancers go home too soon. I wish Kelly and Val continued success, and keep up the excellent work of giving us beautiful performances each week. I look forward to seeing their contemporary performance next Tuesday.

Drew goes home and Kirstie amd Bristol dont? Come on, folks, r u blind?

everyone is better than Bristol! I think the viewer votes count too much – I bet her momma is twisting the arms of the entire tea party and republicans in her pocket voting for her daughter…. and obviously it is NOT based on dancing skills. She better be out of there by next time! Drew and Helio are in a completely different league as Bristol – she’s not champion skill level at all!

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
