Monaco, who was the season 1 champ, will share the floor with Terrell Ownes and Cheryl Burke. Kelly tweeted last week: “So excited to share the Dance floor with my bestie @CherylBurke and the legendary @terrellowens next week on  DWTS”  As noted on social media, the trio has been busy in rehearsal for their performance.

Kelly and the gang will compete against another competitor who appeared on the soaps, Corbin Bleu, who played Jeffrey on Prospect Park’s reboot of One Life to Live.  Bleu will dance with Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold.

Rounding out the night will be:  Kristi Yamaguchi  joining Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas, Rashad Jennings dancing with Drew Scott and Emma Slater, Laurie Heranadez who will dance it up with Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy, and Alfonso Ribiero who joins Frankie Muniz and Witney Carson.

Hey Patrick…

I really DO have to catch up (though I just watched Kelly’s “three-way” dance.” I was kinda disappointed; she can do so much more/better…just didn’t like the dance though I love her and thought she looked great!

LOVED the “psychedelic” dance with Jordan and Lindsay. Fantastic! As was Mark’s samba.

Yeah! He’s an amazing choreographer as is Derek, Max, etc.(Love Mark with the curly hair!)

They’re just all so great. Love!

Hello, Dymundjake,
I have always liked Kelly Monaco. Such a pretty Italian girl. I remember when she won her first time around with ‘Dancing’,

I enjoy her subdued role as Samantha, even though she is underestimated as an actress by some.

Me. too. Francesca!!!! I have always sung comely Kelly’s praises for her dancing skills….she deserved her first win on DWTS and should have taken home the mirrorball trophy on the champions edition, as well! It was not only her innate talent that impressed me so, but her steely determination and strong work ethic she displayed during her appearances on the show. Throughout her last round of competition, she was carrying a full load of episodes on GH at the same time, but never complained or expected special treatment…she was a real trooper and sport, plus, she demonstrated that she’s also… Read more »

I know @ Shay. I feel the same way about Sam. I have always liked her, even as her hellion-self years ago. I watched from a distance lol. I didn’t know about her hearing problems. That would explain her whispering, but speaking sotto voce, which literally means, ‘below voice’, is an affectation. I can’t be sure if her mumbling is due to auditory issues. I do not know enough on the subject to form an opinion. Kelly sounded normal on “dwts”, which makes me wonder if her half whispers and mumblings is part of her repertoire. Kelly Monaco appeals to… Read more »

Great for Kelly! No one can away her victory as winning dancer of the inaugural season of DTWT! And I like her GH character!

LOL Jamesj75! I agree on both counts! That was so funny…when Kelly’s win was contested by John O’Hurley (?). Ans then at his request they had another dance-off! Hahahah…ahhhhhhh…that ol’ competitive spirit!

I also agree…I like Sam, too!

Thanks, Rebecca! I wasn’t a fan of O’Hurley’s challenge, but the good thing was that Kelly got more airtime — and dance time!

That dancing with the stars, it’s so bad.. I tuned in a couple of times and it’s grandma stuff. watching people dance, why ?? why would people want to watch those people dance bwahaaa to each their own.. I tuned in to see the now Secretary of Energy Rick Perry (Trump/who replaced Dr. Ernest Moniz who holds a Doctorate in Theoretical Physics) with the dancing Perry, and it was a stunningly embarrassing thing to witness (o0oh my gawd!) It might be interesting to watch a woman with the body of a 11yr old girl dance in 7” heels dance. It… Read more »

You’re a light in the darkness, SuzieQ…..waking up with rain pounding on the roof is a downer, then I read your post…LOL and then some.
You do have a way with words.
I never watch, albeit I know Kelly won….she must have been fantastic……it’s been a while; no longer the spry-dancer-with-7-inch heels. Someone needs to remind her of that. HaHa.
What can I say? More power to her? Break a leg? Sorry, could not resist.
You know what I do notice, each and every time a picture of Kelly is shown? Never as she looks today….always pictures of twenty years ago. Strange, that.

hi Celia !

That dancing with the stars, is nursing home gawd awful !
Their costume are from the wardrobe of a 3 ring circus; they should drop down from a trapeze
And who in heck dances like that= nobody ! 0oh dear lorddy!

They look more than ridiculous wiggling their feathered g-strings, too stupid for human consumption, Rick Perry proved that point bwahahaa haaa!

Hello again, CeeCeeGirl! I’m so glad you have finally experienced the “real” Kelly M that I have championed to you on many a previous occasion! Wasn’t she dazzling??? You really must check back to her performances on the “Battle of the Champions” series because she was always inspiring and beautiful in her varied dance genres. Quite frankly, she and her partner, “Valentin” (Shades of GH…Lol….) were absolutely magnificent and they definitely should have won that competition. At any rate, I hear you on the youthful dance classes….your vivid descriptions of your little one brings back memories of my own years… Read more »

@Shay. Hey, Shaybelle. I apologize for taking a bit long to reply….life happens. My GG ( great grandmother) went to heaven….she would have been 100 this coming April. Sad!! Miss her, already…RIP. But, I am one to forge on….I cannot sulk, ot I’ll lose it. I cannot allow THAT feeling to take a hold of my throat. Suffucating!! So, …..Kelly Monaco. She was dazzling….no doubt. ….never questioned her dancing skill, nor her nice looks. Kelly is undeniably pretty, but not a beauty….as some are wont to push her toward that category. ….just what I think, that’s all. Kelly does have… Read more »

@Shay.
Oopsies: Alighierian…..hard to keep all those vowels in check.
Shay, please note that, in no way, do I try to discredit Kelly her looks. She is well-put together—-we petites girls can swing ‘them’ hips just as much as those never-ending, long-legged models.
Seriously, forgive me for repeating myself, but Kelly was, indeed, a vision on that dancing stage.
I wonder if she had any training, other than/ prior to “Dancing”?!

Deepest condolences to your family and especially to you, CeeCee….I know how important and influential your great-gran was to your existence, so, of course, she shall be dearly missed.

As for GH matters,CeeCeeGirl….I could not agree more about the macho attitude overload of the “Two Jasons!” So much posturing and grandstanding yet to come, you can be sure…what next, a measuring stick contest???? (Please, just keep Sonny out of it…..Lol!) However, I do remain intrigued with the storyline, which in and of itself is something of a miracle for me! I cannot tell you the last time that has happened, but needless to say, it has been years! At any rate, I am gratified that you have finally had the chance to see Kelly shine outside of the narrow… Read more »

Hi su… If you like dance…then you’ll love Dancing With The Stars. This is a show with great entertainment and excellent choreography. The dancing is stupendous once they weed out the few that aren’t adept at it. (Which always contradicted what the show was supposedly going to be about…taking an inexperienced dancer and pairing him or her with a pro dancer…and seeing how much they improve week to week…as they compete with the other less experienced “stars.”) That’s not how it evolved. Now, we have celebrities…some very well-known with a popular following, from TV, film, theatre, sports…others not as well-known… Read more »

oh, and by the way, Kelly’s body is as rocking today as it ever was. all one has to do is check her out on the show and they’ll see that; I have no doubt she’ll kill it.

su, I did watch Kelly. Fantastic job. But, I won’t watch again….I cannot deny how talented these dancers are. Yet, my sister said, the show did not start this way……having celebrities sort of defeats the purpose; which was geared towards “untalented” contestants.
What I did take from this is that Kelly may not be such a great thespian ( in my opinion), but she seems like the kind of girl one wants to be friends with. ( sorry about the poor sentence structure)….. gotta run.

That dance stuff geez nobody dances like or would wear circus customs to go dancing in.. Not to mention the two thumbs down music..

We go clubbing and dancing..

Have you ever been to a recital or a play? What about the drama club….the glee club…..the theater? My little girl is three and she’s in ‘Dance’ already…..with rhinestones, lace/silk/silver studded costumes. Sooo cute….she loves it; a really girly girl, already!!!!

You are most welcome for the sentiments, CeeCee….My heart goes out to you for your immeasurable loss. Despite the fact we most often come to these threads to discuss, dissect and yes, even denounce, the make-believe existences of our favorite—and NOT so favorite—soap opera characters, when real life prevails over fiction, it makes one realize how much we can come to regard and care about certain fellow posters as honest-to-goodness people and dear friends, rather than merely cyber-names attached to comments awaiting a response.

Yes, @Shay. I don’t quite understand why some do not see the very subtle talent hidden behind those expressive Italian eyes of Kelly’s, as Sam. Her words do become inaudible, at times but I always excuse it as part of who she is. She does what she does on cue without overdoing it, as most of us Italians do, lol. Sam reminds me of my daughter who is about her age. She is lead singer of a local rock band, but not ostentatious. I do not know her real personality, but Kelly’s character keeps it under control. It does not… Read more »

Nor do I, Francesca!….I thought “Sam” was suitably, albeit subtly, demonstrable in her deeply-seated emotions with Steve Burton’s character in today’s episode….They were both quietly effective in their heart-tugging shared scene….so much feeling and history simmering beneath the surface there! What a treat it was to behold…oh, so very poignant! As for Kelly’s occasional inaudibility, it has been explained in the past that she suffers from a certain degree of hearing loss, so I definitely give her—and her characteristic sotto voce— a pass! Given that consideration, hers’ is a far better affectation than screaming one’s lines! Finally, after watching Miss… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
