In a new interview with Access Hollywood, Kelly Monaco talks about the new storylines on General Hospital. She also comments with her thoughts on rehearsals with Val Chmerkovskiy for Dancing With The Stars. Note how Val is suffering from a stress fracture currently. Let’s hope he’s good to go by showtime. More below. Be watching for the video to be posted at Access Hollywood sometime this weekend or Monday.
As she pulls double duty (leaving very little time for sleep), Kelly’s feet, luckily, seem to be going strong. She admitted she has just a few blisters (during her first season her feet were left bloodied) to speak of. But, the same can’t be said for Val, who has a stress fracture in his left foot.
The pair’s first dance in a little over a week will be the cha cha, a dance Kelly never learned on her shorter, original “DWTS” run.
“There are at least half these dances that I’ve never done before,” she said.
Despite the steep learning curve for Kelly, Val said she is doing very, very well.
“She’s very good, she’s very talented and seven years ago she did a great job – clearly. She won. But this season she’s going to do an even better job and it’s going to be incredible,” he said.
I can’t wait to watch these two. Love them!
