Will Val Chmerkovskiy Make It To General Hospital's Nurses' Ball?

Dancing with the Star All-Stars Val Chmerkovskiy, the former ballroom competition partner of Kelly Monaco (Sam) made such an impression on General Hospital executive producer Frank Valentini during his last cameo appearance that the soap is looking to invite him back … and …. for the upcoming Nurses’ Ball no less!

According to OMG Yahoo! via AccessHollywood.com, Valentini confirmed Val’s return is in the works: “Yep. We’re crossing our fingers. That one is totally based on schedule. We love Val, he loves us, he had a lot of fun last time on the show working with Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis).”   Of course ,it would make sense if Kelly Monaco and Val danced a routine during the talent show portion of the Ball!   Beyond the Nurses’ Ball, Valentini said he would be open to Val being a recurring guest star!

Meanwhile, Valentini said that Monaco’s character of Sam, after all the misery she has gone through, will get to have a bit of fun. The EP also noted the on-screen chemistry between Monaco and Michael Easton (John McBain) by stating, “It’s ridiculous. We have to tell them to hold back in the studio!”

So soapers would you like to see Val perform with Kelly at the GH Nurses’ Ball? Who else would you like to see sing and dance from the cast? And what do you think about the on-screen chemistry of Kelly and Val and Kelly and Michael Easton?   Weigh in!

Totally, I’ve rarely seen so much chemistry between two people onscreen. I wish they’d jump on each other already, this is an even bigger tease than Todd and Carly (which I also love together)!

Yes, I would love to see Val with Kelly on GH. He needs to hurry before Sam is forced into a love story with Mcbain. As a long time fan of Kelly (Sam McCall) , I agree she is way over due for a little fun & happiness. Unfortunately, I don’t see all this chemistry between Kelly & Michael that Frank is talking about. They keep telling the viewers that they have this “connection” but I don’t see or feel it. I think maybe it’s the age difference. I thought he had more on screen chemistry with Alexis & Anna… Read more »

ME & KM have nice chemistry but I would not say ridiculous unless I am being nostalgic. As for DWTS Val, I will just say no. I did not watch them on DWTS so I will pass on GH. KM first DWTS inspired storyline was horrid enough for me to tune out, do not need a repeat gimmick, just my opinion.

Would like Ned and Frisco to sing and let Luke dance a Saturday Night Fever number.

I agree I’m not fond of gimmicks – and that first one with Sam having a look-a-like ballroom dancer was a dud. BUT, in this setting it makes sense AND not only is Kelly a better dancer, but Val and Kelly dance wonderfully together. It will be a smash.

I wholeheartedly get and respect what you are saying about the setting and Kelly and Val dancing together being a smash, but I had the opportunity to tune in to see them on DWTS and I passed. So, now because I watch GH, I have to be subjected to it now? Oh we’ll, I guess I will.

Happy for the you and the viewers who are really looking forward to this, I just happen to be one who is not :).

To have a setting like the wonderful Nurses Ball, and not showcase the terrific partnership of Val and Kelly on the dance floor would be insane. I am hopeful that the scheduling will work out, as this is such a great idea!!!

Omg,, yes,,, get Val on there asap!!! There is fantastic chemistry between him and Kelly that is off the charts!! I know people say Kelly send Michael have chemistry,, but I seriously do not see it. Now, with Kelly and Val being paired up on DWTS and the hoopla surrounding it,, the fans are NOT wrong!! He has his career ,, so he’s not a starving actor,,, but you wanna talk fun for Kellys character,, he’s your man!!!

I always thought that Rick Hearst and Florencia Lozano would make great dance partners. that would mean bringing Ric and Te’a back momentarily, but I believe it would be worthwhile. It seems to me that I read somewhere that Rick Hearst’s wife is a professional dancer and dance instructor. And I seem to recall that, way back when Florencia Lozano first appeared on One Life to Live, her personal history included the fact that she was a professional dancer. It seems to me that Lozano’s specialty was the Flamenco. Someone else who is also surprisingly good at singing is Nolan… Read more »

Don’t limit Val just to the Nurse’s Ball.What a waste of talent. He is insane hot, even hotter with Kelly and the more scenes with him the better.
Love Kelly.
Love Val.
Love Vally.

Yes, he’s hot. But did you actually watch his acting last time? Not good.

Bring him on to dance at the Ball with Sam. That’s enough.

The chemistry between Kelly and Val is Real which will bring many more viewers to GH. Kelly and Michael’s chemistry doesn’t not appear to be sincere. Viewers get caught up in the daily lives of these characters but also relate to what is fact and what is fiction when it comes to a relationship onscreen.

Well I am going to go against what the majority says. I find it rather rich that so many want a dancer to become a regular on a show where I hear, every day, about how huge the cast is. 🙂 That being said, Val Chmerkovskiy’s, in my opinion, appearance on GH left a lot to be desired. He bumped into Alexis with his shirt off. Whoop-dee-doo! IF and this is a big IF he was to make another appearance, it should be another cameo at the Nurses’ Ball to do what he is trained to do which is dance… Read more »

I totally agree; while Val is quite the eye-candy, his acting wasn’t that great. I mean, he’s a dancer, not a trained actor! Bring him on to dance at the Nurse’s Ball, but don’t make him a usual guest on the show. There are so many great struggling actors out there waiting for their big break, and then they go and give a role to someone with zero experience? Makes no sense. Kelly and Val do have amazing chemistry, but unfortunately he’s for not on par acting-wise.

Val was on for less than two minutes, one day- not long enough for an acting assessment, IMO. Most actors also sing and/or dance so, one talent definitely doesn’t preclude having another. As for actors without jobs, there are many…always have been, always will be. Experience has never been a prerequisite for acting, new actors break out all the time and daytime is a starting point for many so, that argument is without merit. Val is new energy and heat, something any soap can always use and he and Kelly are magic. No offense to Michael Easton but, Kelly has… Read more »

See that Christine…once again we agree! 🙂 (it happens sometimes, lol)
But I do agree. I would LOVE to see them dance at the Nurse’s Ball, but that is it. I don’t want any story line with the two of them, no thanks. The ball makes sense and it would be fun, other than that….nah.

Ditto, CTwild heart. His acting was sad. Bring him on to dance and let that be the end of it. Please.

I say bring Val on full-time & have him & Kelly strike up a sizzlin’ romance story. I want to see McBain & Natalie reunited. Michael & Kelly were an awesome couple on Port Charles but now I like their rapport as good friends on GH & would rather have them stay that way.

But I would Michael E. and Kelly M., working together on GH… too!

It was a silly scene, and I think it was done to tie in with DWTS. If he were to come back, he should be a dancing instructor, that is all he would be qualified for, but i do think the producers like to bring camp into the show. Ref. to vampires, and John and Sam knowing each other somehow. i do not see the chemistry between Kelly and Easton, i mean it seems there is some longing but that is apart of the role. As far as the nurses ball, I would like to see Spinelli and Maxie to… Read more »

I’d love to see Alexis and Diane do something funny. I miss the chemistry between those two when they showed them together as BFF all the time! They both have great comedic senses. Finola Hughes is a ballerina. Let her dance. I loved seeing Tony Geary sing Sintra (I think or else it was Sinatra-like). I think the Spinelli/Maxi act as previously mentioned would be a hoot! Milo should do another striptease, oh please! The male cops could do a song and dance routine in uniform. Songs from Frisco and Ned/Eddie Main are no brainers.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Helena, Jennifer Smith & The Ice Princess: What Did You Think of Luke Spencer’s Memorial?

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought the highly-anticipated story around the apparent death of Port Charles iconic, Luke Spencer (Tony Geary), although many fans, and even some of the cast of the show, are not sold that Luke is “dead” dead.

During the show, characters spoke of some of the history of Luke in Port Charles, most especially Luke’s sister, Bobbie played by Jackie Zeman.  Throughout the years, Zeman is at her best when she is given material through the writing of the show to connect to the history of Luke and Bobbie.  She did so when Bobbie was remembering how Luke came to Port Charles to help her break up Scotty and Laura, in a discussion with her daughter, Carly (Laura Wright).

As everyone is gathering at the Haunted Star to pay their respects to Luke, Curtis (Donnell Turner) arrives to support Laura (Genie Francis), Felicia (Kristina Wagner) and Anna (Finola Hughes) arrive together, Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Ava (Maura West), as well as Spencer (Nicholas Alexander Chavez  also show up. It is through Nikolas’ conversation with Laura that we learn why Luke’s sons, Ethan and Lucky, can’t make the funeral and, of course, we know why Luke’s daughter Lulu can’t make it because she is in a coma!

Victor (Charles Shaughnessy) shows up and snipes at everyone and then leaves.  Tracy (Jane Elliot), who has arranged the memorial, is with an urn supposedly filled with Luke’s ashes and Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) finds her on the deck of the Haunted Star and talks her into giving her planned eulogy.

Courtesy/ABC

Meanwhile, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finds his dad, Sonny (Maurice Benard) drinking at Charlie’s, and later Scott (Kin Shriner) and Robert (Tristan Rogers) stop in and heated words are exchanged between Sonny and Scott. Victor shows up and instead of Scott and Sonny pummeling each other, they get into a fight against Victor.

As Scott and Robert are about to be on their way to the Haunted Star, Scott stays behind because of his past with Luke.  Then, Sonny tried to patch things up with Carly before they head to the memorial.

Back on the yacht, Anna and Felicia find a note and a flash drive, after hearing a commotion on the yacht.  When the note says “play me”, none other than Helena Cassadine (Constance Towers) addresses Luke’s friends and family from apparently the great beyond.  As Helena spews her venom against Luke, Laura has enough and pulls the plug on Helena’s video speech.  Tracy looks concerned, like she may want to hear whatever else Helena had to say.

Next, Tracy does her best in short order to eulogize Luke.  That is juxtaposed with Scott trashing Luke.  Later, by herself on the deck, Tracy spreads Luke’s ashes over the waters of Port Charles. Back on the pier, Scott relishes Luke being gone, and that he is still standing saying, “You lose you son of a bitch!” Just then Luke’s ashes blow in into his face.  When Bobbie arrives, and see Scott full of ashes, she asks what happened.  Scott says, “I caught the bouquet,” an obvious nod to the Luke and Laura wedding of the past, where Scott returned at their wedding and caught the wedding bouquet.

Back on the Haunted Star, Tracy then has a gift in hand for Laura, but she tells Tracy if that’s the Ice Princess she does not want anything to do with it, and tells Tracy to keep it.  Spencer sees this go down and his interest on the diamond is instantly piqued.

Back at Charlie’s bar, Victor has an ominous toast to Luke saying, “The good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise!”

At the Haunted Star, dressed in black with black veil, Jennifer Smith reveals herself to a shocked Laura.

(WATCH) GH’s Genie Francis Shares: “I Just Have a Hard Time Believing, In My Heart, That The Great Luke Spencer Died in an Accident”

Today’s Friday episode of General Hospital, is set to feature the funeral of the iconic Luke Spencer (Tony Geary).

While family and friends will gather on the Haunted Star to memorialize him, what been teased by the ABC daytime drama is it will also set a whole storyline in motion.

ABC7 entertainment guru, George Pennacchio, spoke to several of the GH cast, who are involved in the episode including: Luke Spencer’s long-time love, Laura played by Genie Francis.

Francis exclaimed on the whole story: “I just have a hard time believing, in my heart, that the great Luke Spencer died in an accident.  No one stays dead on a soap. I don’t know how many times I’ve been dead. Really!”

Genie added: “I feel like they’re setting the stage, really, for a wonderful comeback and I’m going to keep my fingers crossed for that.”

Luke’s longtime friend played by Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) shared: “And has it actually happened? I mean, frankly, we have a little urn about this big that’s supposed to contain him and that’s it.”

And Luke’s sister, Bobbie, played by Jackie Zeman, also weighed-in if Luke is really a-goner: “Sometimes you get these little red herrings so, as you know, George, you know, you never really know.”

Watch Pennacchio chat with the GH stars below.

Now weigh-in, do you believe Luke is very much alive and well? Held captive, or “dead” dead? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
