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… Read more »

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 James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
