Oh Baby Daddy, Chelsea Kane has a hard job!
August 18th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

In case you needed a reason to watch ABC Family’s hysterical Baby Daddy, Chelsea Kane gave you four. Why she’s standing there with four hot built guys in just their underwear, you will just have to tune in when the show comes back because that was shot for the fourth season premiere. Maybe it is a guy for each successful season they have had.
As if it the sitcom needed any more hot men, but I will totally take them!


April begins Chemo tonight on Chasing Life’s midseason finale
August 12th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

The whole season of Chasing Life has lead up to tonight’s episode at 9p on ABC Family, and it doesn’t disappoint.
Since episode one the drama has been talking about April (Italia Ricci) starting chemotherapy for her Leukemia and tonight she finally enters the hospital for her month long treatment. The first night her mom (Mary Page Keller) stays with her, but the patient doesn’t sleep. Being trapped in the hospital is emotionally hard for her. Then when she starts having visions of her late father, things get so much worse for her. She can’t handle it anymore so she calls Leo (Scott Michael Foster) to break her free from the hospital. He meets her in the hospital’s place of worship and tries to convince her to stay, but are his words enough? Will she run away with him? Especially since Dominic (Richard Brancatisano) is back. How will she explain everything to her ex-boyfriend? How will he handle her cancer diagnosis?
Not only does the show deal with all of the above, it also deals with how the side effects of chemotherapy are effecting her. What it is like to be confined to the hospital. How the nurses act differently to the patients in the ward. The emotional stress it puts on the family and friends and so much more. It is so well done, I implore you to watch their brilliant episode.
As I mentioned tonight is the midseason finale. So there will not be a new episode for a while. ABC Family informed me we are getting a holiday episode and the rest of the season will air shortly after that. I hate that we have to wait that long to find out what happens next. I really wish they would air the rest of the season straight through and then pick it up for a second season. What are they waiting for? It is the best show that the network has ever done, so I sincerely wish that they keep it going. Who agrees with me?


April’s last day before chemo on Chasing Life, don’t Passover Hollywood Hillbiilies
August 5th, 2014 under ABC Family, Reelz. [ Comments: none ]

It is April’s (Italia Ricci) final few hours before she enters the hospital for a month long stay so she can get chemo and she wants to live life as normal as possible before then. However, when someone at works finds out her secret on tonight’s Chasing Life at 9p on ABC Family, they spread her diagnosis faster than you can say, “breaking news”.
April and Beth (Aisha Dee) go to Bruce Hendrie’s (Todd Waring) debate for Governor so that she can speak to Leo (Scott Michael Foster) about their “night” together, but he is already talking to the other press people. When Leo starts talking gibberish, it is obvious something is very wrong. Therefore, they decide that he needs to go to the hospital to be checked out.
Beth is in the auditorium while April is in the pressroom at the time. When Beth hears the ambulance, she assumes it was for April. When she finds out it isn’t, she runs into the bathroom and breaks down. One of April’s co-workers comforts her as she tells her how scared she is for her best friend. This speech will make you go through a box of tissues because it is that heartbreaking.
Beth didn’t know that the person she was crying to is April’s co-worker. When that person realizes it is April her bathroom buddy is talking about, they tell everyone at The Boston Post about her leukemia. Now, April’s normal day is anything but. Instead of letting it get to her, she writes an article that will break your heart. An article they read at the end of the episode.
But before we get to that, April goes to visit Leo at the hospital. When she’s done she runs into her doctor. The doctor shows her where she will be staying for the next month and reality has finally set in for her.
Another reality that sets in for her is that she might lose her hair to the chemo. Beth shows her what she will look like bald to prepare her if that happens.
Then it is time for April to go to her home away from home for the next month. As she leaves, the show reveals something that will make you wish you could watch next week’s episode right away. Although you will probably want some time off for your eyes to dry because there will be a lot of crying during tonight’s extremely poignant episode.
Chasing Life is proving to be one of the most powerful shows on television. Not only because it is about cancer, but because of the way they are handling it. So, if you’ve never seen the show, then you’ll want to catch up on the episodes you’ve missed on the Watch ABCFamily app and/or ABC Family OnDemand. First make sure you have enough tissues to get through it because you will need them.

If you are like me, then you are desperately going to need a laugh after Chasing Life. You will get several laughs during the season premiere of Hollywood Hillbillies on Reelz at 9p tonight.
The lease was up on the house that Mema, Michael, John and Dee Dee were staying at, so they’ve been staying in a crappy motel for the last month. None of them are happy about it, but what can they do.
Especially since Michael’s manager, David Weintraub, has been away for the last month touring with Ray-J. Now he is back and Ray-J has signed Michael on for his label, it’s time for a meeting. Ray-J might reconsider singing the ginger after he meets Mema. She actually tells him at the meeting that she watched his infamous sex tape with YKW. That’s why we adore because she will tell anyone whatever is on her mind at that moment.
Meanwhile, Weintraub will regret taking a call during their meeting because his parents invite Mema and her family over to their house for Passover. It is as crazy as you’d think it is going to be. Oy!
However, it works out because they find a place to stay. That house is will look familiar to you because we’ve seen it on another reality show. Think you can guess which one? You will just have to tune into find out.
I am so happy Mema is back on Reelz because I’ve missed her mouth so much!


April faces her mortality on Chasing Life
July 29th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on ABC Family’s Chasing Life, April (Italia Ricci) attends her first funeral for one of the members of her cancer group. That experience will change her outlook on everything.
Up until now, she didn’t realize that she could die. But seeing that someone just like her can, makes her comprehend that she might not be able to the beat cancer. The timing couldn’t be worse for her because she is about to start chemo. That means she will be in the hospital for a month, and she is beginning to accept that there is no guarantee that she will ever get out.
Now, that she understands she isn’t immortal, she finally gets what Leo (Scott Michael Foster) was saying about living life to fullest. Something he has been doing for other people and you will get to see what his beautiful legacy will be. It is an admirable one and you will wish you could follow his example. Although, we also learn something else about him and his cancer tonight.
Tonight’s Chasing Life is very poignant as it tackles the reality of death and how far someone will go to avoid dying. So once again, I warn you to have the tissues ready because it is another wonderfully done tearjerker.
If you have been missing out on this brilliant show, then please catch up on it on the ABC Family app or ABC Famly OnDemand. It is one of the few shows that I suggest you make time for because there is always time for powerful entertainment.


EP Aaron Kaplan shares Chasing Life’s message and it’s a beautiful one!
July 15th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

When you look up Aaron Kaplan on IMDB, you will see the list of shows that he is an Executive Producer on are all very different from each other. He’s worked on the sci-fi drama Terra Nova, the nighttime soap GCB, the hilarious alien/human sitcom The Neighbors, the raunchy Friends with Better Lives, the family sitcom Instant Mom; and coming up he has the suspenseful murder mystery Secrets & Lies and the police dramedy The Mysteries of Laura. So while most EPs stick to the same genre, he does anything but. I asked him about that at the NBC Summer TCA Press Day and he said, “It allows me to play in so many different spaces and exercise so many different creative muscles.” Then he added, “Frankly, I would be scared of doing the same kind of show every single time.”
So what would be that perfect show for him to produce? His answer is not what you would expect. To him, “The perfect show to do is one that resonates with an audience, with a cast that enjoys each other, with great creative writing. That’s what excites me.”
One of his shows that is currently on the air that really excites me is ABC Family’s Chasing Life. I wanted to know how long this show could go because lead character, April, has Leukemia. I asked this question because her type of cancer killed my old boss within 6 months of her diagnosis, but then there were people are her memorial service who had it for years. Kaplan responded by saying, “Whether April lives or not, the message has to be to not take your days for granted, to not take your friends for granted. “ Adding, “What I do promise is we are not going to prolong this, where she is healthy, she’s sick, she’s healthy, she’s sick.” He knows the audience is smarter than that and because of that they will be keeping the show authentic. What he loves about Chasing Life is that mortality is not something someone who is 25 is thinking about. He concluded his thought with, “What we are trying to do on this show is really talk about how precious life is.”
And tonight at 9p, someone on the show is given an end date. That person understands how precious life is, and they are teaching April (Italia Ricci) to live her remaining days to the fullest. Not that she is going to die, but we all need to live our lives. Although for April that is getting tougher to do now that her mom knows about her cancer. Sara (Mary Page Keller) is being overprotective of her daughter and the lengths she is going to might cost her April. And April has enough on her plate because the side effects of the cancer are starting to show their evil side. Because of that she has no choice but to face the fact that she has cancer and everything comes along with it.
So once again get the tissues ready for an another emotionally well done episode. Just think this season only 16 more episodes to go after this one. Do like I did and go stock up on tissues at Costco because you are going to need them to get through the rest of the season.


Proof Ryan McPartlin truly could be a mannequin!
July 10th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

Ryan McPartlin is so good looking that his character’s nickname on Chuck was Captain Awesome. I mean, he’s so model perfect, you’d almost think he was a mannequin. Well, you wouldn’t be alone because today they used a store dummy on the set of his new ABC Family show, Mystery Girls, as his double. You know what, I can’t tell which one is real and which one isn’t. Can you? I think he’s the one that got laid, I mean, leied. Honest mistake!
BTW McPartlin might look like a life-size stiff, but his acting is anything but!


The tears will be flowing during tonight’s Chasing Life
July 8th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

If you thought last week’s Chasing Life was a real tearjerker, tonight’s episode on ABC Family at 9p is even worse.
The episode starts off with April (Italia Ricci) fainting in front of her mom (Mary Page Keller), and now her mother is suspicious of her. Sara can’t figure out why her daughter is losing so much weight, moody and tired all the time, so she searches April’s bedroom. When she is in there, she finds a bag full of pills and assumes the worse. So she decides to hold a family meeting with April’s sister (Haley Ramm), grandmother (Rebecca Schull) and estranged Uncle George (Steven Weber). What will happen when Sara confronts her daughter? Will April finally tell her mom she has cancer? And top it all off, Uncle George gets a call during the intervention and he finds out the results to April’s biopsy. How will she handle the news? What is the course of action? And so on?
So just reading that is enough of a hint that you will need a full box of tissues when you watch it because you will be crying like a baby. I know I was.


April reveals her diagnosis to someone close on tonight’s Chasing Life
July 1st, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p on ABC Family’s Chasing Life, April (Italia Ricci) finally tells someone else that is very close to her, besides her best friend, that she has cancer. She does it while she is in a heated argument with that person, and then storms off after she shares the news. How will that person react? How will she react? How will you react? I can only answer the last one and I will warn you now, have the tissues ready because you will be crying. And just when you think that the tears will stop, they will start again as she finally gets her biopsy to see how far along she is with the Leukemia. This scene will make you feel like you are in the room with her, holding her hand. It is that well done.
I will admit, I had issues with the first two episodes of this show because I didn’t think they handled the cancer storyline correctly. But the last two episodes have really impressed me because they are finally dealing with it head on and the acting and writing is handling it perfectly.
So if you’ve never seen the show; you can watch the first 3 episodes online or on the ABC Family App, and then watch the fourth episode tonight. If you’ve been watching it since the beginning, tonight’s episode is a must not miss. So don’t miss it.


Do Lea Thompson’s lips look bigger you?
June 26th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

Lea Thompson Tweeted this photo of herself and her lips look a little bigger to me. It almost looks like she had way too much Casual Sex with Howard the Duck and her very plump pucker is the consequences for it.
So do you think her kisser is Some Kind of Wonderful or she needs to go Back to the Future to get them fixed?


Emily Osment is Young & Hungry, Tori Spelling & Jennie Garth are Mystery Girls
June 25th, 2014 under ABC Family. [ Comments: none ]

Young & Hungry makes its debut on ABC Family tonight at 8p and you don’t want to miss this delectable show.
Gabi (Emily Osment) is a food blogger who desperately wants to be a personal chef, even though she has no experience. She gets the interview of the lifetime, the chance to be a personal chef for young tech entrepreneur Josh (Jonathan Sadowski), but his right hand man (Rex Lee) wants to hire someone else. When Josh comes early, she gets the chance to cook for him. It is enough to make an impression, but not enough for her to get the job. So he tells her if she cooks a meal that gets his girlfriend say yes to his proposal, he’ll hire her. But when his girlfriend dumps him right before the big dinner, it looks like Gabi is fired before he is hired. Will she get the job anyways or is she back to food blogging only? You just have to tune in to find out.
I was seriously not expecting to like this comedy, but I was hooked by the first commercial break. I hope they pair this sitcom up with Baby Daddy because the two are a perfect match

Then at 8:30p on ABC Family, Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are together again in Mystery Girls.
Fifteen years ago, Charlie Contour (Garth) and Holly Hamilton (Spelling) starred on the hit show Mystery Girls and since then they have gone their separate ways. Holly is still living like a celebrity, and Charlie is living life as a happy married mom in the suburbs. But one day things will totally change for them when they get a call from the police. Seems uber fan Nick (Miguel Pinzon) witnessed a crime and he won’t talk to anyone else but he Mystery Girls. So they come down to the station and realize they are still good at solving crimes even without a script. Because of that they decide to open up Mystery Girls and solve real life crimes together along with their assistant Nick.
That is what happens in the pilot that doesn’t air tonight, but I wanted to give you the back story so that you could be caught up. Tonight’s episode starts out with a false rumor that Holly is dead. Instead of telling everyone the truth, they decide to sell of her stuff and make a killing. But someone tries to sell a sex tape with her in it, so they have decide if she will tell everyone she’s alive or hold a fake a funeral. They opt for the latter and that’s when thing get really crazy.
Mystery Girls is cute in an ’90s syndicated sitcom type of way. So if you are missing those type of shows and Kelly and Donna, then you are going to heart this show.
