This liveshot captures the spirit and love of Houston!
August 31st, 2017 under Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]


KABC’s Elex Michaelson was sent from Los Angeles to Houston to cover the horrible flooding they are having there from Hurricane Harvey. While doing a liveshot from a rescue boat, he met 92-year-old Shirley, who had all of her rescuers, the news station and the people in Houston, laughing when she told the reporter, “Oh, I didn’t realize (I was on TV). I would have worn my wig for the occasion.” She also flattered her Knights in Shining Armour, who carried her to their boat because she has bad knees and her son to help them flee to dry land as their community was put under a mandatory evacuation due to the rising waters.

Throughout the interview, she remained so positive even though she thought she would go down with the ship aka the house she has lived in with her son since 2000. Even though she did not want to leave, her son and her rescuers convinced her it was the right thing to do. And we are glad that they did because the other refugees are going to need her humor in the makeshift homes until they know the fate of their currents ones. Hopefully, more houses will survive than the estimates of the nearly 70,000 that are lost.

While Shirley was a big part of this interview, we also saw many other rescues going on in boats of all sizes. People, who had boats, came to the Houston area to save as many lives as possible. You can see that going on and that generosity warms my heart. Just when you think America has become a country full of hate, you see we are still full of love.

I admit it, I cried when I watched them sail down the street and all of these boats were there to help strangers. We are all good people and this liveshot proved it to me. May Gd bless all of you, and get you through this. I know he will.

As someone who lived in Miami around Andrew, I can tell you, you will rebuild. #HoustonStrong will be Houston Stronger because of it. Gd bless!

Donnie Wahlberg leaves a $2,000 tip at Waffle House!
July 13th, 2017 under Admirable People, NKOTB. [ Comments: 1 ]


We know that Donnie Wahlberg is a really good guy, and turns out he is an even better tipper. Yesterday during a tour stop with New Kids on the Block, he left the staff at a Waffle House, where they ate a ton of money, as in a $2,000 tip. Why? He explained, “My mom waited tables, and my dad tended bars– for years! So, when I walk into a #WaffleHouse, and the staff treats me like a king, you better believe I treat them like queens! Thanks to the team at @wafflehouseofficial Charlotte, NC! ❤️” Therefore, to the waiters and the waitress of the World; if you see the Blue Bloods star walk into your restaurant, then you better treat him like a king. It will literally be well worth your while.

BTW you know what shocks me about that check, is how did they spend $82.60 at a Waffle House? That place is cheaper than cheap and yet really yummy. Now I am craving their hash browns. Nothing better at 2a in the morning after a fun night of partying.

June 13th, 2017 under ABC, Admirable People. [ Comments: none ]



Micah Fowler not only plays a character on Speechless who has Cerebral Palsy, in real life the 19-year-old also has it. That is why him graduating from high school is a really big and incredible deal.

Yesterday after he accepted his diploma, he posted this message on Instagram:

I finally graduated!! 🎓There was a time where I never thought this day would come and I am so grateful to all the people who helped get me here. Southern Regional School District has been the greatest home for the last 6 years and they’ve been so fantastic to me all along. Also a big thank you to all the teachers I’ve had along the way at the Fredrick A. Priff School and Watertown Elementary! I am truly, deeply grateful. Thank you Southern and everyone there. I will miss you #foreveraram 🐑#classof2017

Proving that when there is a will there is a way, and nothing can stop you. Congratulations to him on his huge accomplishment. Cannot wait to see you back in school in September, as in all new episodes of Speechless.

Fowler is honestly one of my heroes and I am sincerely so proud of him! I just adore that huge smile on his face, one that is so well deserved.

Shannen Doherty is in remission
April 29th, 2017 under Admirable People, Beverly Hills 90210 / Melrose Place, Shannen Doherty. [ Comments: none ]


Shannen Donherty has been very open about her battle with Breast Cancer and sharing with the World what she has been going through from chemotherapy to radiation and all the tests and feelings that happen in between it all. Now, the actress is going to share with us what remission is like because doctors told her the cancer is gone.

Moments. They happen. Today was and is a moment. What does remission mean? I heard that word and have no idea how to react. Good news? YES. Overwhelming. YES. Now more waiting. As every single one of my fellow cancer family knows, the next five years is crucial. Reoccurrences happen all the time. Many of you have shared that very story with me. So with a heart that is certainly lighter, I wait. In the meantime, decisions. Reconstruction which is several surgeries. Decision on taking a pill for the next five years that comes with its own set of problems and side effects. I am blessed, I know that. But for now…. remission. I’m going to just breathe. #cancerslayer

I am so happy that she is in remission because she has helped so many people understand what it is like to go through the awful disease. In five years, I can’t wait to report that she officially cancer free.

This cop was busted…with some sexy Salsa movies!
April 25th, 2017 under Admirable People. [ Comments: 1 ]


Over the weekend cops were called to Leslie Sapp’s San Antonio house over a noise complaint and what happened next is something no one ever expected.

Instead of the police officer shutting down the Next Generation Dance Crew, an organization dedicated to inspiring and encouraging the youth to express themselves through dance, party, he asked the DJ to play a song that he liked. Then he went on the dance floor and did his best Salsa moves. Not only delighting Sapp and the kids including her daughter at the party, he also changed their views of law enforcement. Sapp told KSAT, “As a parent, especially these days, there is a lot of negativity in the world when it comes to cops, and he broke that stereotype. He didn’t have to take his time to do that and could have just (gone) in and shut it down.”

Proving that only does dance inspire and encourage kids to express themselves, it also breaks down barriers. Therefore, instead of hands across America, let’s have dance across America! Maybe this way we can get along because we need it more than we have had in over 50 years.
