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!

I just love Kelly. As for who should go home….Bristol. Hands down.

If Kelly goes home before Bristol Palin, I’m giving up on America!!

I need a ‘like’-button for this comment. :p


One name BRISTOL needs to go home. She stood out as bad & stiff. Kelly was talented and beautiful. Love her relationwhip with Val.

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.

you looked so beautiful kelly, being a huge gh fan and one of the biggest sam and jason fans knowing he left this week must have been really hard for you GREAT JOB

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 her week has been. I, too, am having a hard time wrapping my head around Steve Burton’s departure. Hopefully, Kelly will be safe. She wowed us week one, she WILL do it again! Love #team vally

I don’t watch ABC except for GH. I saw her performance online and she looked so beautiful. I voted for her online to support her &GH. I hope she goes all the way. Again!

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 and not a dancing show most weeks. This was a good wake-up call though, vote for Kelly. I for one thought she certainly did well enough and clearly deserved safety, but I did not take the time to vote. I certainly will do so from here on in. Good luck Kelly, and I hope this week is a bit easier with the time off from your GH schedule!!!

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.


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……

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
