How Did Kelly Monaco Do On Last Night's DWTS All-Stars? GH Star Admits To Emotional Final Week with Steve Burton!

It was not the best of night’s for General Hospital’s Kelly Monaco (Sam) who looked simply stunning in that pink dress! Last night on Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars, Monaco  performed a quick step with partner Val Chmerkovskiy.  However, the judges scored the sexy duo only a 22 which had them towards the bottom of the heap, but ahead of contestants Bristol Palin and Kirstie Alley.

After the show, Kelly spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth, where she admitted it was a difficult week:  “I understood the scores.  This was something I couldn’t really get into. I was just uncomfortable and that’s how it looks.”

What also did not help Kelly’s cause was during the rehearsal week for her new routine, she was involved in some heavy duty drama on the set and behind-the-scenes at GH, with the departure of her long time on-screen love interest, Steve Burton as Jason Morgan!  Of that Kelly said,  “I was completely delirious this week from working 15 hour days.  I cried like a baby. Steve said a lot of really wonderful things to me and I couldn’t speak.”

Tune-in tonight to the Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars Results Show at 8:00PM EST/PST to root Kelly through to the next round!  So soapers, if you caught last night’s competition, who do you think should be sent home?  We have our thoughts, and it’s NOT Kelly! Watch Kelly’s performance after the jump, and you be the judge!

While I didn’t vote for kelly monaco I thought she did a good job and it was nice to see her in some color other than black. She just wasn’t as good as Sabrina, Melissa, Apolo, Gilles or Emmitt. She should be safe because BP was not very good at all.

I love Kelly and I thought her Quick Step was very nice. And she looked stunning in that pink dress! Palin should go home. She was terrible last week and she was even worse this week!!!

I had 36 votes (phone, ABC website and FaceBook). All went to Kelly and Val. Concerned she placed 10th on Judge’s Board. She can’t go home before Bristol. Bristol was so stiff, even the judges commented about the amount of errors in her performance. Mark is amazing, I will be sad to see him cut, but Bristol does not deserve to continue after that performance. Kristie and Mak did well, probably her best so far. She needs another week (or more). Kelly is capable of better, but after reading the article, I now have a better understanding of how difficult… Read more »

First of all, let me say to Michael Fairman that I absolutely love you! Not only are you my “Go To” guys for all things soaps, but the respect that you have for this genre is truly incredible. *side note* love every one of the new soaps you have added to your list…just awesome!

Now to DWTS, I think it is truly awful that Kelly was in the bottom three 2nite, and Bristol was safe…Paw Leez…Kelly and Val were excellent, like NLG said, its time for us soap fans to be heard…vote #teamvally!

Kelly & Val did a great job. I was shocked to see them in the bottom 3. KP had been the weakest link. Yes, the verdict is in and Kelly is safet. OMG in regards to the prior wk she has had on GH. She & Jason have made a great couple for years . Kelly, good luck on DWTS.

It really had to be a very long, and trying week for Kelly between the emotions and long hours at GH and all of the time I am sure she spent rehearsing, and then to be in the bottom three tonight (OMG???), but thankfully she prevailed. I honestly cannot believe that Bristol Palin did not go home, and she was not even in the bottom three. She is a sweet girl, and has come a long way, but clearly does not belong in an all-star season. Joey Fatone did not deserve to go home either. DWTS is a popularity contest… Read more »

Kelly, you and Val are my favorite couple . I too can’t believe Bristol is still there. What a joke! She does not belong on this show. I prayed you guys would not be eliminated. You’re so lucky, Val is SO hot.

THIS IS ABOUT GENERAL HOSPITAL. THIS IS THE BEST THING THAT COULD HAPPEN THAT SAM GET’S HER BABY BACK. I AM SORRY AND SAD TO HEAR THAT JASON IS LEAVING THE SHOW, WILL JASON FIND OUT THAT HE IS THE REAL BIRTH DAD TO SAMS BABY? I LOVE THEM BOTH. I WISH THAT JASON WILL STAY AND FINALLY HAVE A HAPPY FAMILY WITH SAM.

I agree with your fans, Michael. You are the go-to-guy for soaps daytime or night time. As far as DWTS, Bristol is just a klutz and doesn’t deserve to be there. And , I don’t want to see her mother and father and sister, either. I also don’t believe Kirsty Alley has a chance,either. Oh. well…I’m sure the right couple will win. And Giles is one good-loking guy and a great dancer. He gets my vote……

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..
