Kelly Monaco is one of the celebrity contestants competing in Season 15 of ABC's ballroom competition series, "Dancing with the Stars: All-Stars." She partners with professional dancer Valentin Chmerkovskiy, who returns for his third season. She previously teamed with Alec Mazo to become the winner of the very first season back in 2005.

Kelly Monaco is perhaps most famous for originating the role of Samantha McCall on ABC's "General Hospital" in October 2003. In the category of Outstanding Lead Actress, Monaco was an Emmy nominee for this role in 2006. Her television credits include co-hosting the 33rd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards as they were broadcast for the first time from Hollywood.

She had a 3 ½ year stint on the ABC Daytime drama "Port Charles," garnering her first Daytime Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Supporting Actress in 2003. Her television debut occurred in 1997, when she landed a recurring role on "Baywatch." While shooting "Port Charles," she also guest starred opposite Charlie Sheen and Heather Locklear in a season finale of ABC's "Spin City." In addition she has appeared in the feature films "Idle Hands," "Mumford," "BASEketball," and was most recently seen on Hallmark's movie "Edge of the Garden."

Monaco headlined and opened the Las Vegas "Peep Show" performing in front of sold-out audiences. She was also featured in the Emmy-Award winning documentary "Daytime Gives Back, Africa," and allowed fans a peak into her private life on E!'s "Dirty Soap." Before joining that reality docu-series, she had recently ended an 18-year relationship with her high-school sweetheart and was cautiously getting ready to jump back into the dating pool in Los Angeles. One of her best friends is Kirsten Storms, whom she met when Kirsten joined "General Hospital."

Monaco grew up on the East Coast, where she participated in soccer, swimming, track and softball, among other sports. Her family moved from the bustling city of Philadelphia to the more peaceful environment of the Poconos. In addition to athletics, she participated intensely in speech, debate and theater in high school. She is involved in Feed the Children and Children's Hospital, and resides in Los Angeles.
