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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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!

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Mike’s Funeral Brings The Alzheimer’s Storyline Full Circle to Its Heart-Tugging Conclusion

When a soap opera allows a full episode to stay in the story they are telling, it can often make for a riveting hour of television.  This was the case and then some on Thursday’s emotional ending to General Hospital’s Alzheimer’s storyline; when the character of Mike Corbin (Max Gail) was given a proper send-off – a funeral – and being eulogized by those who loved and cared for him.

When GH is at its best through the years has been when it tackles social issues of our time, and this story will stand among the iconic soap’s best.  The backdrop of the story was that of father and son, grappling with and coming to terms with the past, finding love, forgiveness and redemption against this most horrific of diseases that has afflicted so many.

In the episode, Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright) go to church and prepare themselves for the emotional day as mourners come through and share their grief and condolensces and love for Mike.  Those included: Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth – back for this one), Stella (Vernee Watson), Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and a touching moment between Diane (Carolyn Hennesy) and Carly where the legal eagle says to Carly that if she ever needs to drink and vent let her know.

 

As the funeral begins, one by one Mike’s family and friends say beautiful words of what he meant to them,. Michael reflects about how his grandfather loved to party and how he’d like them all to raise a glass for him. . Olivia, speaks on behalf of Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), and how close Mike and Dante were.  Ava (Maura West) talks about the love and kindness and joy he brought to little Avery.

When Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) got up to speak, things became even more heartbreaking when she flashes back to a scene where she was having a terrible time and Mike was there for – always a great listener- but he tells he eventually, he will not remember her.

GH did a outstanding job of selecting scenes throughout the eulogies that punctuated who Mike was … and how he tied in to all of the characters lives.  Jason (Steve Burton) shared how he knew it wasn’t easy for Mike to come back and try to make amends with Sonny, but that no matter what, Mike kept trying to get through to Sonny to make things right between them.

Stella’s moment was also heartbreaking recalling the man who became her friend.  Carly, who was the glue that held Sonny and the family together during Mike’s illness, shared her doubt if the family could handle Mike, and what was to come, but how Sonny helped his father find inner-peace..

When Sonny gets up to talk he reveals he had a lot of anger towards his father, and how the illness made him truly see the man his dad was inside.  Sonny tells his dad he is proud of him and how grateful he was that he came back into his life.   Next, Josslyn (Eden McCoy) sings as the mourners reflect back on Mike in a touching series of juxtaposed clips against the characters in the moment at the funeral.

After the service had concluded Sonny and Carly talk how Morgan and Mike are together now, but Sonny asks for some time alone in the church. It is then Mike appears and tells his son it’s time he forgave himself, since Sonny forgave Mike.  He tells Sonny that he has made him very proud.  As he gets up to leave he kisses Sonny on the forehead and goes towards the light and to heaven.  Just after that, Dante appears at the front of the church, shocking Sonny in a beautiful analogy that now this father and son must deal with what’s ahead in their relationship, just as Sonny and Mike had done.

This episode featured beautiful work by Maurice Benard, and Max Gail and everyone in the supporting cast who had their moments.  It was an ensemble piece but led by Benard and Gail, who should both be receiving Emmys in 2021 for their work..
