I think the controversy came because the head of ABC daytime, Brian Frons has made it known that he thinks soap actressess over 40 dont bring in viewers, so he has forced alot of the women who have been on these shows for decades to the back burner if they are on at all. Then he practically shoved Kelly down the viewers throats. She was on every day and broke up two popular couples with the first few months. Then Frons brought on another former soft porn actress and did the same thing -- shes on everyday and is the spoiler to two popular couples. Kelly took it in stride and has really grown over the last couple of years. Even she said she knows shes not popular but that GH viewers are nevertheless loyal and have been voting for her. I personally like her.

Ah ha, I understand better now. Thanks for the info, Lauren! Btw, where do you get your info from??

I noticed that about GH too, that they were slowly pushing out the older actresses. Other soaps have actors and actresses that have been with the show for 30+ years!! So what is wrong with GH?! Shame on them! I didn't like Samantha (Kelly) at first either but then I usually need some time to warm up to a character, especially one that splits up two favorite couples (not her fault, I know). Reese, on the other hand, I still don't like (but then again, I don't watch GH as often as I used to....crappy storylines recently). I don't know enough about her character to like her. What's her past? And why is Brian Frons giving plump roles to past porn stars? Is there a story there somewhere? :wink:

Btw, I'm rooting for Kelly! She's cute and spunky and her dancing is improving steadily. :D

Lauren, I only just read what you posted this afternoon, and all I can say is wow, you are one smart cookie! :wink:

Thank you for the analysis and background info. Initially, I too, disliked Kelly's character Sam on GH. But the way they've spun it now, has garnered a lot of public sympathy for "Sam". She really has become a lot more likable. Btw, I had no idea that she was on Port Charles before she came to GH.....

Once again, I'll say what I said on another site, I think John will win but I also really really like Kelly and I think she's become an amazing dancer!

More info on Kelly

This is from Soapzone.com although the first part is soapzone quoting Datalounge which isnt always a reliable site. I do know that Ingo Rademacher who plays Jasper Jax on GH was offered one of the slots before they approached Kelly.


Other daytime stars other than Kelly Monaco (Sam) were given a chance to be in the surprise ABC primetime/reality-TV show hit, Dancing With The Stars, but they were too worried about how cheesy it would look or how stupid they would look to accept. Now, Monaco

FROM TV GUIDE: Entertainment News

BUNNY HOP: Expect to see Dancing with the Stars champ/General Hospital siren Kelly Monaco's tarantella and fandango, but not necessarily her flamenco, when Playboy runs previously unpublished pictures of the April 1997 Playmate in its November issue. I have dibs on the copy in the back of my dad's sock drawer.
