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 Alum Annie Wersching Dead at 45

In very sad news on Sunday, actress Annie Wersching, who starred in the series 24, Bosch and Timeless, and portrayed Amelia Joffe on General Hospital, passed away this morning from cancer.  Annie was only 45-years-0ld.

Deadline broke the news of Annie’s death.  In a statement, Wersching’s husband, actor Stephen Full, shared: “There is a cavernous hole in the soul of this family today. But she left us the tools to fill it. She found wonder in the simplest moment. She didn’t require music to dance. She taught us not to wait for adventure to find you. ‘Go find it. It’s everywhere.’ And find it we shall. As I drove our boys, the true loves of her life, down the winding driveway and street, she would yell BYE! until we were out of earshot and into the world. I can still hear it ringing. Bye my Buddie. ‘I love you little family…’ ”

Wersching’s first major role came as Amelia Joffe on General Hospital.  She played the role from May to September of 2007.  Amelia came to Port Charles to seek revenge on Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco) and wound up lovers with Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard).

Later, she went on to star as Renee Walker in Seasons 7 and 8 of 24.  She also appeared in The Vampire Diaries, Runaways, Extant, and The Rookie.  One of her last roles was in Star Trek: Picard which came two decades after she made her screen acting debut in an episode of Star Trek: Enterprise.

Annie is survived by her husband and children children Freddie, 12; Ozzie, and Archie, 4.

Kelly Thiebaud Opens Up on Her Exit from General Hospital, Taping Britt’s Tragic Death Scenes, and Parting Thoughts on Co-Stars

Just a few weeks ago on the January 4th episode of General Hospital, viewers were left devastated when Dr. Britt Westbourne succumbed to a fatal poisoning after a confrontation with ‘The Hook’.

While it was revealed that Daytime Emmy winner, Kelly Thiebaud, was exiting the ABC soap opera at the end of 2022, many thought the story would see Britt leaving Port Charles to deal with her declining health due to Huntington’s Disease in private, in order to keep the door open for a possible return down the line.  However, that was not meant to be.  When a report from Deadline surfaced back in August of 2022, it indicated that Kelly was returning to her primetime role on ABC’s Station 19, which caused some confusion and rumors of just what would Thiebaud’s ultimate status be with the daytime drama series.

Now, in a very special exit interview for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Kelly chats with Michael Fairman and clarifies what led to her decision to leave her role as Dr. Britt Westbourne.

Talking with Fairman direct from London, Kelly, who won a Daytime Emmy in 2022 for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series, reveals how it came to pass that GH would kill-off the character of Britt by becoming another victim of ‘The Hook’, and more.

During the conversation, Thiebaud shares her thoughts on working with her former GH co-stars including: Steve Burton (ex-Jason), Parry Shen (Brad), Kirsten Storms (Maxie), Kathleen Gati (Liesl), Cassandra James (Terry), Roger Howarth (Austin) and Josh Kelly (Cody), as well as some of her favorite memories throughout her run on the series which began in 2012.

Kelly took the character from being the manipulative ‘Britch’ as an interloper in the romance of Patrick (Jason Thompson) and Sabrina (Teresa Castillo), all the way to becoming a well-loved character to root for.

While, GH viewers witnessed Britt’s shocking death scenes, Kelly weighs-in on taping those moments, as well as Britt’s emotional goodbye birthday party, and having the opportunity to portray a character who was trying to navigate her life, while suffering from the effects of Huntington’s Disease.

In addition, Thiebaud gives a very special ‘thank you’ and shout out to the fans for their enduring support as she looks forward to new roles and new adventures ahead.

Denise Crosby Makes a Return to General Hospital

After a major fallout with her parents, Carolyn (Denise Crosby) and Jeff Webber (William R. Moses), Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) was devastated, in particular because they concocted a plan to make her forget all about the tragic situation earlier in her life. That being, when Finn’s (Michael Easton) late wife, Reiko, fell down a flight of steps and eventually died after she struggled with Liz.

Apparently, the story is not over, when Denise Crosby reprises her role of Carolyn beginning the week of January 23rd on General Hospital.

Talking about her return in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, Crosby previewed, “She (Carolyn) wants to make a connection with her daughter and try to make amends for something that is almost impossible to make amends for. She knows it could go really wrong, but she can’t live with herself if she doesn’t take the shot.”

Something tells us there is more to the story of why Carolyn could have returned to Port Charles? Any thoughts?

Let us know your theories about Elizabeth’s mother upcoming return to Port Charles in the comment section below.
