GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy are SAFE! Will Dance Again Next Week on DWTS All-STARS!



Fantastic news for soap fans and General Hospital peeps!  Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her dance partner, Val Chermkovskiy who went into last night’s Dancing with the Stars: All Stars Results Show with the lowest score on the ballroom dance competition leaderboard were deemed “safe”! So that means Kelly and Val are still in the competition, and will compete again next week in a very tricky routine combination!

During The Results Show, each couple had to pick a fusion style dance combination for each other to compete next week!  Kelly and Val ended up with the Cha Cha/Foxtrot which on paper looks to have a high degree of difficulty.

In a dramatic ending to the night’s proceedings, all of the top three leaderboard vote-getters landed in the bottom three … and the couple that was sent home was Sabrina Bryan and her partner, Louis Van Amstel, who the night before scored perfect tens in what was related by the judges as Sabrina’s best performance.  The irony:  last time Sabrina was part of the DWTS competition she was sent packing the same week!

So soapers, did the wrong couple go home?  Are you excited that Kelly and Val will dance again? And remember keep voting soap fans!  And if you are rooting for  Kelly and Val,  they need each and every vote in a very tough season with stiff competition.

    Whew! That was a close one. Tried to vote but the voting was closed. Don’t watch the show, but I want to support KeMo and soaps in general. Also voted for Donald Driver and didn’t watch then either. No ABC for me except GH. So, sorry, but it’s all just a big popularity contest. LOL!

    Well, I guess we know Todd Manning watches. I wonder who he votes for?

    I definitely think Kelly and Val deserve to still be in the competition. I don’t think Sabrina should have gone yet. As much as I like her – it should’ve been Kirstie.

    I think that the Judges didn’t do a good job scoring ….. on the View today they showed where Whoopie pointed out where Sabrina’s partner kinda let her slip …yet the jujges gave her a perfect score? I think that they have been under scoring Kelly & Val. They have been giving Kelly scores lower than Kirtstie Alley??? Really?? No matter what, I am so happy that she has been doing so well!

      While I won’t watch ABC except for GH, I do watch clips online. I agree that Kelly puts all her effort into her performances and it shows. I like Kirstie too, but her skills aren’t as good. The judges scores are as skewed as the fan popularity voting. So I guess it equals out. I had no problem voting for DD as a fan after watching his dancing, just as I have no issue voting for Kelly, as a fan, after watching her efforts. I hope Kelly goes all the way, again. I just can’t watch the show because I hate ABC as much as those creepy DWTS judges. But I welcome any cross-promo of soaps because I hope it generates interest in GH that ABC otherwise shows almost no interest in promoting.

    i just don’t understand how the tptb & tiic could even have an elimination this week when 8 million households were without power & couldn’t see the show or vote – this is just another way abc shows how much they care about the fans who were effected by this historical storm………..smh

    Yes, it is a popularity contest, not just for skill. But Kirstie?? and Max, they are both very popular, but Kirstie is not that great. From what I have seen of Kel/Val, they are very good and totally in sync with each other. Happy they are moving on!

    Everyone deserves a vote. I think the person, that should have gone home was. Kristie Alley not Sabrina and Louis. Besides Kelly had the lowest scores, the next person that had, the lowest scores was KRISTIE. All of the ATHLETES, AND KELLY AND VAL HAS MY VOTE.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?

WATCH: 47th Annual Daytime Emmy Winners Virtual Interviews

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.

Each of these interviewsare also posted on The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube.  Make sure to “subscribe” to the channel for more celebrity interviews and features.
