Daniel has made a Kelly Monaco Update:
Dancing with the Stars vixen Kelly Monaco has had tongues wagging lately about her status at General Hospital. Is she staying with the ABC sudser or going on to other things? During a press conference at Super Soap Weekend, I asked Monaco for an update and she obliged, albeit a bit nervously.
"What's going on is that I did sign a prime-time deal," Monaco told TVGuide.com. "Oh my God, I can't believe I am saying this! I signed a prime-time deal, but thank God [ABC entertainment president Stephen] McPherson and [ABC Daytime chief] Brian Frons are agreeing to work with me. And that doesn't mean I'm going to prime-time — it means that they have the only rights to me if a show happens to come up. So, if something comes up in the future, then it will be a very smooth transition for me. If not, I stay put and stay where I am, which is the way I wanted it because I love daytime and I love my job."
Bottom line: GH fans can rest assured that the superhot Sam McCall is sticking around Port Charles! My thanks to Kelly Monaco for being such a good sport when this reporter put her on the spot like that.
