Kelly Monaco talks 'General Hospital' wedding and new show 'Dirty Soap'

General Hospital‘s Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason (Steve Burton) may have already said their vows on Thursday’s show, making it official at a Chinese food restaurant instead of at the big church wedding everyone else was planning to attend, but today is the day things really go down. “They wind up going back to the church where everyone is waiting, pissed off and angry. And they tell them, ‘Yeah, we did it. Deal with it,'” laughs Monaco. “Then they go off to the reception to have fun, while James Franco lurks and plans his next evil plot.”

Yes, psycho Franco is already back with his creepy smile, staging a new elaborate scheme to get back at Jason. Monaco hints that his return means that there’s more turmoil in store for Sam. She’s already been shot and blown up during her time on the show. What more could they do to her, right? “Oh, there’s plenty more,” she jokes.

Meanwhile, Monaco is primed for the Sunday (Sept. 25) premiere of her E! reality show Dirty Soap. The show follows the off-screen lives of Monaco, Nadia Bjorlin (Days Of Our Lives), Kirsten Storms (General Hospital), Brandon Beemer (Bold and the Beautiful), Farah Fath (One Life To Live), JP Lavoisier (One Life To Live) and Jenna and Galen Gering (Days Of Our Lives). Monaco and Storms were already friends, but she didn’t really know the other actors. And Monaco likes that they aren’t trying to make it seem as though all the actors are living these fabulous lives as pals. “I think it’s a good opportunity to a get in front of a whole generation who may not know daytime is still on television. It’s also a good way to marry reality to sort of a docu-series because we are documenting our lives as actors,” she says. “I know as a viewer I would want to see how the magic is made. And we’re going to be able to get to show that and then take the facade away by showing our real lives. It’s not always glamorous.”

Monaco talks openly about the fact she’s just acclimating to single life. (She recently got out of a long-term relationship.) So why do it so publicly? “Well, I think it helped me move forward, sort of forced me to move on,” she says. Plus, the state of daytime TV requires new strategies, she says. “It’s either sink or swim,” she says. “Let’s try to swim a little.”

    Nadia, Farah, and Kirsten should already know each other. They were all on Days at the same time.

    • Kris

      The three of them played friends on the show so of course they know each other but Kelly Monaco doesn’t know them and they were talking to her.

    Farrah Fath once did a monologue in the 8th grade about having a pimple on picture day. She was hilarious, and we all knew that if any of us was going to be famous one day, it would be her. It’s funny, though, because she always seemed so much more girly than she does these days. I guess that’s part of growing up. She really has always been a goofball, though. Long live Jessie Clark Middle School!

      From what I’ve gathered of Farah over the last 10 years, she is definitely girl. She loves doing her own makeup, and she’s very good at it. So good, in fact, friends/co-stars have asked her to do their makeup. Girly doesn’t necessarily mean long hair and pink dresses. I consider her girly, she’s just got an edge to her look what with the short hair.

    Kirsten has the most connections with everyone. Not only has she worked on-screen with Kelly, Nadia, Farah, Brandon, and JP, but she formed friendships with all three of the ladies. I’m dying to find out what happened with her and Farah! They’ve been through a lot together, I hope they can patch things up.

    I WATCHED THE SHOW AND ENJOYED IT. I HAVE TO SAY THIS -I HAVE BEEN GOING DOWN TO THE OLTL (USED TO BE AMC OF COURSE) STUDIO SINCE 1970. I MET FARAH SEVERAL TIMES LAST YEAR AND WATCHED HER LAST NITE ON THIS SHOW. I WASNT IMPRESSED THEN AND IM SURE NOT NOW. SHE COMES ACROSS AS BITCHY AND SNOOTY, LIKE SHES ALL THAT. NOT HARDLY. THIS GOES FOR IN PERSON TOO. JOHN PAUL CAN DO BETTER….ANYWAY SHE SEEMS TO ACT LIKE WHO THE HECK SHE THINKS SHE IS. SAME IMPRESSION I GOT MANY TIMES SPEAKING TO HER AND STANDING RIGHT THERE NEXT TO HER IN PERSON WHILE SHE SPOKE TO OTHER FANS.. WHILE HANGING DOWN AT THE OLTL STUDIO. IM NOT IMPRESSED. SHE MAY WALK AROUND WITH HER NOSE IN THE AIR THINKIN SHES ALL THAT BUT SHES NOT. EVERYONE ELSE ON OLTL WAS WAY NICER.

  • dirtyfan

    Kelly isn’t single. She is already in another relationship. Will be interesting to see if it is addressed on the show.

  • Pam

    I loved the wedding for Jason and Sam. What was the name of the song that was played at their wedding?

  • Veronica TM

    Farah comes accross as Bitchy, Snooty, or Mean; but i think she’s just showing who she really is. She’s not acting fake or hiding who she really is, and I appreciate her for that.

  • M&Mfan

    Kelly, Mike? what were you thinking? He’s not even cute. You’re so pretty & should be with someone handsome like Steve Burton. Loved the wedding. Can’t stand Laura Wright (Carly). Get a life.

    I am an advit GH fan, been watching since I was 14. I am now 52, yeah a long time. I am a Philly native & LOVE Kelly Monaco. I think she is a REAL person & you can definitely see the Philly girl in her & I love it. On the show when she went home, she went to this place called the Jubilee that she often goes too. I was just there recently & it’s cool b/c the people there are SO down to earth BUT so excited that people saw it on TV & now people come from all over to visit it. VERY COOL & it’s all b/c of Kelly. Way to to Kelly!! Maybe someday I will see her there.
