Last night on DANCING WITH THE STARS, Kelly Monaco (Sam, GENERAL HOSPITAL) performed a quick step with partner Val Chmerkovskiy, and their score of 22 has them down at the bottom just ahead of Bristol Palin and Kirstie Alley. So what went wrong?
“I understood the scores,” Monaco admitted to Soaps In Depth following the show. “This was something I couldn’t really get into. I was just uncomfortable and that’s how it looks.”
Her partner is hoping that their chemistry (and the GH fans!) will push the through into next week for another chance. “We’re an interesting couple to follow,” Chmerkovskiy said. “She is the only dancer who has shown improvement since she won. No one else is doing anything different. A lot of people are doing the same thing with the same dancers doing the same choreography. For me, Kelly’s the only one who’s showing improvement.”
Playing the emotional final scenes with Steve Burton‘s Jason on GH certainly didn’t help when it came time to rehearse her DANCING routine. “I was completely delirious this week from working 15 hour days,” Monaco confessed. “I cried like a baby. Steve said a lot of really wonderful things to me and I couldn’t speak.”
Don’t forget to tune in to the DANCING WITH THE STARS results show tonight at 8:00 pm EST and see if Monaco makes it through to another round!
