GH's Kelly Monaco & Val Chmerkovskiy Deliver Stunning Emotionally-Charged Performance on DWTS All-Stars!



If you caught last night’s episode of Dancing with the Stars: All Stars it was one of the most challenging evenings for several of the performers and their dance partners who had to deliver routines chosen by their competition!

For General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) and her partner, Val Chmerkovskiy that meant they had to perform a contemporary dance as chosen last week by Cheryl Burke! Given the fact that Kelly and Val had the most difficult task of the night to pull off in front of the judges, the live audience, and the television viewing public, Kelly and Val wowed with their modern dance.  What was additionally noteworthy was that Monaco had broken her middle toe earlier,  and was suffering from a fever prior to hitting the dance floor!

However, with all that going against her Kelly and Val’s routine was emotional, electric, and sexy! The judges comments reflected major kudos to Kelly and Val; Len Goodman noted that Kelly has been the biggest revelation.  Guest judge Paula Abdul said their dance was beautiful.  Bruno noted that their dance was the hardest and Kelly  nailed it. Carrie Ann Inaba felt the routine was  stunning, and gave the only negative comment from the judges that when Kelly and Val danced side-by-side that some of the moves were above Kelly’s level of dancing skills.  However, Inaba also said that it was something that takes years of training.

After the show, ABC Soaps In Depth caught up with Monaco where she revealed she did not admit to Val she had broken her toe until the dress rehearsal citing  “I don’t want to hear, ‘Oh, that’s an excuse’.  I don’t want any excuse not to do well. I want to suck it up and do it.”

At the end of the night, Kelly and Val were in third place on the  leaderboard! Topping the judges scores for the night were: Gilles Marini and Peta Murgatroyd and Shawn Johnson and Derek Hough!  At the bottom of the leaderboard was Kirstie Alley and Max Chermkovskiy! Who will go home tonight on the Results Show?  What did you think of Kelly and Val’s performance?  If you have not seen it, watch it after the jump!

    I’m smelling a romantic chemistry. I don’t care that Kelly’s boyfriend was sitting in the audience. Kelly and Val are hot together!

      For the first time, her BF was not smiling at all. The “package” before the dance was very reveling.

      Kelly is smokin’ HOT! She’s been sex appealing it BIG time. I have been rootin’ for her…. especially, since, Drew, Helio, and Joey Fatone (sigh) are no longer contenders… and i thought all three were up there.

      Kelly is def. in the top three…. along… with… Gilles, and Sabrina!

      too much competition… and that’s what this year, finally is…

      so close…. is Emmitt and Shawn.

        Shawn & Derek are the best this season! I like the way Shawn is so mature for her age. She’s always professional, never overly emotional or hysterical. She’s a winner!

    Team Vally has been kicking some major butt! Theirs was my favorite dance of the night, it was so stunning and emotional, just as Michael Fairman’s headline reads. I really want them to be the ones holding the mirror ball at the end.

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”

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.
