General Hospital star and season one DWTS winner dances again.
Updated November 7: For those who didn’t catch Kelly Monaco in the “Dancing with the Stars” special last night, Soaps.com has a quick rundown of what took place. Monaco danced the Rumba with Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke. Though dancing with plenty ‘threesome’ suggestions to “Slow Hands” by Niall Horan, and Monaco promising to go on a date with Owens if they scored a perfect 30, the trio received a 24, due to the lack of ‘rumba’. By the end of the episode, Owens and Burke were sent home. The “GH” actress posted a few photos from her primetime return and fans can watch a video of the trio’s performance below…
On October 31, Soaps.com learned that "General Hospital's" Kelly Monaco (Port Charles' Sam Morgan) will return to ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" next Monday November 6 for trio week. Monaco competed in the first season of the show in 2005 and was partnered with Alec Mazo. She went on to win the first ever coveted mirror ball trophy. Monaco returned for Dancing with the Stars All Star season in 2012 and was paired that time with Val Chmerkovskiy. The duo took third place, with TV personality Melissa Rycroft and her partner Tony Dovolani winning.
Next week on "DWTS" the six remaining couples will compete with a third partner. Former season winners and runner-ups will return to partner with the current line-up of stars. Kelly Monaco will team up with former footballer Terrell Owens and Cheryl Burke. Corbin Bleu, who played Jeffrey King on "One Life to Live," will join singer Jordan Fisher and Lindsay Arnold. The other trios include footballer Rashad Jennings joining Drew Scott ("Property Brothers") and Emma Slater, Olympic gold medalist Laurie Hernandez pairs with ESPN host Victoria Arlen and Val Chmerkovskiy, Alfonso Ribeiro ("Fresh Prince of Bel-Air") partners with Frankie Muniz ("Malcolm in the Middle") and Witney Carson, and Olympic gold medalist Kristi Yamaguchi joins violinist Lindsey Stirling and Mark Ballas.
