Dancing with the Stars

For weeks gossip sites and celebrity magazines have been left wondering if former "Guiding Light" star Hayden Panettiere was indeed pregnant after pictures of the "Nashville" actress surfaced with what would appear to be a baby bump. As part of the social phenomenon known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, Panettiere put those pregnancy rumors to rest while challenging her unborn child to take part.
Just one day after revealing he would be returning to ABC's "Dancing with the Stars" for its 19th season as a pro dancer on "Good Morning America," the network announced that Derek Hough will also be joining the cast of "Nashville" for a multi-episode story arc. Hough will portray Noah West, a beguiling and disarming movie star who crosses paths with the Nashville elite following his being cast as the lead in a biopic of a famous country music star.
ABC has renewed dramas "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.," "Castle," "Grey's Anatomy," "Once Upon a Time," "Resurrection," "Revenge" and "Scandal," while also picking up comedies "The Goldbergs," "The Middle," and "Modern Family" for the 2014-2015 television season. The network has yet to decide the fates of drama "Nashville" and comedy "Last Man Standing," although the likelihood of both series returning remains strong.
This morning on ABC's "Good Morning America," the cast for Season 18 of celebrity dancing show "Dancing with the Stars" was announced. Among them is former "General Hospital: Night Shift" star Billy Dee Williams (ex-Toussiant DuBois), perhaps most famous for his role as Lando Calrissian in the original "Star Wars" trilogy.
Long gone but never forgotten characters are popping up left and right on ABC’s “General Hospital,” leaving many fans wondering which fan favorite could be next. The recent reveal that Julian’s (William DeVry) henchmen, Carlos Rivera (Jeffrey Vincent Parise), is from Puerto Rico had many under the impression that he was related to Sonny’s (Maurice Benard) late wife, Lily Rivera (Lilly Melgar), which then lead fans to wonder if Melgar could be headed back to Port Charles!
Fans of “All My Children’s” Aiden Turner (Aidan Devane) would agree that he was pretty perfect onscreen, but his off screen perfection has now been shattered. According to TMZ, the Hertfordshire-born actor was arrested for felony domestic violence after he allegedly threw a remote control at his girlfriend’s face!
On Thursday, November 28 from 7:00 PM ET/PT through 1:00 AM ET/PT, SOAPnet will present a six hour "General Hospital" Nurses Ball marathon comprising all six episodes dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the ABC Daytime drama series, which aired earlier this year on both ABC and SOAPnet. The episodes include the return of Ingo Rademacher as Jasper "Jax" Jacks, Vanessa Marcil as Brenda Barrett, Richard Simmons as a caricature of himself, Rick Springfield's Noah Drake singing "Jessie's Girl," Magic Milo (Drew Cheetwood) and the gang, which includes "Dancing with the Stars'" Maksim Chmerkovskiy, doing a strip tease. Sabrina Santago (Teresa Castillo) and Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) closed out the ball as they sang "You're Not Alone" to Emma Scorpio-Drake (Brooklyn Rae Silzer) as Port Charles' finest gathered around the stage.

With a resume that includes “High School Musical” and several other dancing performances, it’s no secret that “One Life to Live’s” Corbin Bleu (Jeffrey King) knows how to get down and boogie. But the actor went the extra mile on last night’s episode of “Dancing with the Stars,” performing a contemporary number with partner Karina Smirnoff that impressed America — and the judges!
