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……

WATCH: The Cast of ‘Studio City’ Talk On the Latest Five Episodes & The Making of the Critically-Acclaimed Digital Drama

It’s one of the most talked about digital dramas out there, with a look and feel all its own, containing smart, witty, and dramatic plots and dialogue, and stellar performances abound.

In Amazon Prime’s Studio City, the story about life on a soap in front of the camera juxtaposed with the often harsh reality of life behind the scenes, will have any fan of the genre getting a kick out of some of the very familiar soap tropes contained within balanced with the five-hankie moments throughout  And now, Studio City has dropped their latest five episodes picking the story back up from where it left off.

Michael Fairman chatted with the cast of Studio City in his latest interview for The Michael Fairman Channel on You Tube. Those taking part in this virtual conversation included: Sean Kanan (Sam), Sarah Joy Brown (Laurie), Tristan Rogers (Doc), Carolyn Hennesy (Gloria), Scott Turner Schofield (Max), Anna Maria Horsford (Jolene), and Justin Torkildesn (Jacob).  Ronn Moss, who also appears in the series playing a version of himself, was filming a movie during the scheduling of this chat, but his presence is felt when some hilarious moments featuring him and Sean Kanan were discussed.

Soap fans know these actors very well.  Kanan, Brown, Hennesy and Rogers have all, or are presently appearing, on General Hospital.  B&B fans recognize Torkilden, Horsford, Moss, and Schofield along with Kanan from their work on the CBS Daytime drama.

Getting a show up and running and then taped during the Covid-19 pandemic is no easy task as Kanan shared in the group interview.  As well, Anna Maria Horsford and Sarah Joy Brown share how they came to their parts and the rapid-fire pace in which their scenes were shot.  Tristan Rogers, who won a Daytime Emmy last year for his performance as Doc, gives another heartbreaking turn, and reveals his thoughts on the work he did, plus shares his remembrances of his late friend and GH co-star, John Reilly.

Scott Turner Schofield talks about how Sean and his wife Michele Kanan, two of the creators of the show, have given him and the transgender community a space with Max’s storyline in Studio City.  GH favorite, Carolyn Hennesy shares how she crafted her role of Gloria, the executive producer, after Jill Farren Phelps, and Daytime Emmy winner Justin Torkildsen shares how he wound up with a part in the digital drama and the scenes he shares with Hennesy.

You can check out the full Studio City cast interview below.  Then let us know, have you checked out the series? What have been your favorite moments and performances in it? Let us know in the comment section.

GH’s Lisa LoCicero Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

This week on General Hospital the truth came out on all fronts; as Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) put two and two together and realized Ned (Wally Kurth) cheated on her with Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn).  Meanwhile, Alexis figured out Tracy (Jane Elliot) framed her to make it look like she passed out drunk behind the wheel.

Throughout, there were great performances from Wally Kurth, Jane Elliot and Nancy Lee Grahn, but it was soap vet, Lisa LoCicero, who for us was given the material and stole the show with her heartbreaking performances as a woman scorned.

LoCicero plays Olivia Falconeri from Bensonhurst, so believably, that viewers understand her every woman, who married into the well-to-do Quatermaines, and who has a much higher moral and ethical standard then the Q’s.

In key scenes at the Quartermaine mansion, Olivia confronts Ned about the night he never came home, and she wants the truth.  She also rightly accuses Tracy on being part of the cover-up.  A caught Ned confesses.  He tells Olivia he was in a terrible place, and jumped to the wrong conclusion about her and Robert (Tristan Rogers), and began drinking, which Sam (Kelly Monaco) overhears and can’t believe he was drinking with an alcoholic. Olivia says that Ned is incapable of being trustworthy after spending his entire life amongst a house full of liars and cheats.  Meanwhile, Alexis shows up in the middle of all this to confront Tracy on her machinations setting the stage for a showdown between Olivia and Alexis.

When Alexis and Olivia talk in private, the former legal eagle apologizes to her friend for sleeping with her husband; saying they both knew it was wrong right after it happened, but Olivia quickly points out that they didn’t seem to stop themselves or think it was wrong, while he was unbuttoning his pants or she was taking off her blouse!

Olivia stands her ground through her devastation and is appalled that Alexis calls her a “friend” and how she is only showing remorse because she has been caught!

When Ned tries to talk to Olivia and professes how much he loves her and how sorry he is for having sex in a drunken stupor with Alexis, Olivia is gut-punched.  Ned continually says he thought Olivia and Robert hooked-up thanks to Brook Lynn deleting messages meant for Ned.  The fact that he would assume the worst of her, only made things worse for Ned, and then to go as far as having revenge sex with Alexis, made Olivia feel her husband had sunk to new lows.

It is then Olivia has a moment of reckoning; wondering what is her role in the Quartermaine family anyway, and how she doesn’t really fit in.  Ned promises to wait for her and begs her not to give up on them.  When he leaves, Liv breaks down … her marriage in pieces and betrayed by all those she thought she could trust.

Each of the aforementioned moments were played to perfection by LoCicero, leaving the audience wondering just what will Olivia do next and how will she bounce back from this betrayal.  That is why Michael Fairman TV names Lisa our pick for The Power Performance of the Week.  And, if it’s one thing we know about Olivia, she is a scrappy fighter, a survivor, and in the capable hands of this actress, we will be rooting for her all along the way.

So, what did you think of the performance of Lisa LoCicero?  Do you hope Olivia and Ned work things out and they stay together, or do you want to see if she and Robert Scorpio might have a new romance? Comment below.

Lexi Ainsworth Teases Her Return to General Hospital

With her father Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) presumed dead (although viewers know he is very much alive with amnesia), it looks like Kristina is on her way back to Port Charles – which would be a welcome return to the role for Daytime Emmy winner Lexi Ainsworth.

Rumors began circulating on Inauguration day Wednesday, when Ainsworth shared a pic on her Instagram Story of her watching the ceremonies from a dressing room at Prospect Studios in Los Angeles, where GH is taped.

Later, after reports had surfaced on social media that Ainsworth might be returning to her signature role, the actress shared some of those on her Instagram Story as well, which was seen as her way of confirming she is back on the show.

Lexi has been recurring on General Hospital for the last several years, so there is no telling how long she will be on-screen this time.

While there has been no official confirmation from GH, chances are that if there is a funeral ahead for Sonny, Kristina of course would be there to mourn her father. Stay tuned.

So, excited that Lexi will be back on-air on GH? Comment below.
