Touching base on RightThisMinute


Have you spent time watching RightThisMinute?  I’ve been watching the daily shows and I feel like I want to hang out with the hosts (don’t forget to learn more about Gayle)!  During today’s show, they covered weird dancing videos, cute kid videos, extreme glass blowing, which I would totally be horrible at – anything near that much fire, forget about it! I had some friends checking out the show with us today!  Love their comments – here are my favorite

Life Imitates Art as Josie Bissett Plays Real-Life PAPER ANGEL


Josie Bissett truly brings the Christmas spirit to life – and not just once a year.  I spoke with her the day before she was to leave for Sri Lanka with the Starkey Hearing Foundation (  Her work with the Foundation, which helps change lives by providing hearing aids to people around the world, marked Bissett’s first mission trip. Another way Bissett (Melrose Place) will be changing lives this Christmas season is by reaching people through the UP Network’s Paper

Max Charles previews Hallmark’s NORTHPOLE


Tonight on the The Hallmark Channel, be sure to tune into their all new feature length movie, NORTHPOLE, starring Max Charles, Bailee Madison, Tiffani Thiessen, and Josh Hopkins.  The movie follows Charles’ Kevin as he teams up with Bailee Madison’s Clementine the elf to save Christmas! I spent time talking with Max about what to expect from the movie and why you should watch! I loved THE NEIGHBORS so much! Thanks!  It was a really fun show! Now you’re starring

Jane Seymour previews tonight’s all new FOREVER


Tonight on FOREVER, while Henry and Jo are investigating the death of a man who may or may not have been killed by his domination therapist Iona (played with relish by Hilarie Burton who should definitely get herself back on TV in a regular role, stat!), Abe is dealing with the return of his two-time ex wife Maureen, who came back to wreak a little havoc and offer him a preposition. The Maureen in question is played by the lovely

“All for One” Theme of Family Bonding Revealed in HAWAII FIVE-0’s One Hundredth Episode


When I learned that Hawaii Five-0 was about the air its 100th episode, I just had to write something special. So, after making a few contacts here and there, I was blessed to have the opportunity (even at the last minute) to connect with Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik and Five-0 Executive Producer Peter Lenkov. Always knowing he wanted to do something really special for the 100th episode, Lenkov shared his thoughts with good friend Amy Osler, who also happened

Laura Spencer previews THE BIG BANG THEORY Prom, BONES’ 200th, and SLEEPY HOLLOW fun!


Laura Spencer has been a little bit of everywhere this Fall season – playing Raj’s girlfriend Emily on THE BIG BANG THEORY, the latest new intern and [spoiler alert] the late Lance Sweets’ possible love interest, as well as Ichabod’s current day seamstress (rivaling Betsy Ross in quality) who like-liked him and [spoilers!] lost her life as a result. I spent some time chatting with Laura about being busy with three hot shows and what is coming up on all

Comic Con 2014: THE 100 Round Table Playlist!


Here we are at the third episode of THE 100 (airing tonight, and I’m counting the ours) and it’s already been such a thrill ride!  The cast (Eliza Taylor, Devon Bostick, Marie Avgeropoulos, and Isaiah Washington) and creatives (Jason Rothenberg) of the show spent time with us at Comic Con 2014 teasing us about what’s coming, without giving away much of anything, in order to keep surprises like the Grounder-Blood-Transfusion-Train a secret!  Check out the videos and let us know

Talking RightThisMinute with show host Gayle Bass!


A few weeks ago, we mentioned our love for the syndicated show RightThisMinute, and I had a chance to chat back and forth with one of the hosts, Gayle Bass, about what sets the show apart from others – check out what she had to say about how the show comes together! Tell me a bit about how the show came together! We wanted to create a show based on what millions of people are doing everyday, watching and sharing



I want to like THE MCCARTHYS based on the solid cast alone – Laurie Metcalf is one of my favorite comedic actors, Joey McIntyre is probably the first poster I hung on my wall as a child, Jack McGee is funny, Kelen Coleman is a favorite, as a fan of John (and therefore Jason), I love a Ritter (this one is Tyler) – but I’m sad to say that the pedigree does not add up to a good show (Jimmy
