Kelly Monaco (Sam, GENERAL HOSPITAL) was the winner of the very first season of DANCING WITH THE STARS back in 2005, and is rumored to be returning for the next season of the reality competition series, which is set to feature an “All-Star” cast of returning celebs. But with an official announcement of the cast yet to be made, there wasn’t much the actress could tell us about it!
“I’m not confirming or denying,” she teases, “but if I happen to do it, and I happened to have Derek [Hough as a dance partner], that would be amazing. It would be a lot of work, I have to tell you.”
Competing in DANCING while working five days a week on GH was a grueling routine for Monaco the first time around, but now she knows how to approach it. “If I were to do it this time,” she explains, “I would make sure I had Mondays and Tuesdays off from GH because I can’t be in two places at the same time. I think that’s the only way I could do it.
“If I were to do it,” Monaco adds with a smile, “I’d talk to my executive producer and ask them not to have me talk so much. I don’t mind showing up, but having to memorize everything at night is the problem. If they just had me shut up for a little bit, it would be okay!”
ABC is set to announce the final cast for the All-Star season of DANCING WITH THE STARS this Friday, July 27, so stay tuned!
