On September 22nd, Rachel Bloom won an Emmy and revealed that she is pregnant with her first child with Dan Gregor. Today, she announced that she and her husband are the proud parents of a little girl.

She’s here. She’s home.

Having a baby in the NICU during a pandemic while a dear friend was in the hospital 3,000 miles away made this by far the most emotionally intense week of mine and Gregor’s lives. As the lovely doctors and nurses helped my daughter get some fluid out of her lungs, we watched the maternity ward around us change hourly to prepare for the upcoming COVID storm. The whole family is now home safe and I am just so grateful to all of our medical workers. From those in our NICUs to those directly helping COVID patients like Adam, they are sacrificing so much to fight on the front lines of this war. Thank you thank you thank you.
Brb, gonna go get to know the person who came out of my vagina.

The friend she was talking about is her writing partner Adam Schlesinger, and he sadly lost his battle with COVID-19 shortly after she posted this announcement.

I cannot even imagine the rush of emotions she must be going through at this moment. Dealing with a new life and the loss of life at the same time while you are extremely hormonal is an awful thing to go through. My heart goes out to her.

RIP Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne and Crazy Ex Girlfriend
April 1st, 2020 under Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Obits. [ Comments: none ]






Adam Schlessinger passed away today at the age of 52 from complications of Coronavirus after being on a respirator according to Variety.

You might not know his name, but you know his music. He wrote the Oscar-nominated That Thing You Do for the movie, the Grammy-nominated Stacy’s Mom with his band Fountains of Wayne, the Tony-nominated music for the Broadway musical Cry-Baby and he won the Emmy for writing the lyrics to It’s Just Not For Gays Anymore for Neil Patrick Harris to sing at the Tony’s.

That means he was an EGOT nominee. He also won an Emmy for co-writing the music for Crazy Ex Girlfriend with Rachel Bloom. The two of them were working on The Nanny musical when he died.

Today, let’s honor him by singing his songs like the Emmy nominated Tapped That Ass by rewatching CEG, and smiling!

He is survived by his daughters, Sadie and Claire.

Rachel Bloom goes from Crazy Ex Girlfriend to mom to be!
September 15th, 2019 under Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday was the Creative Emmys and Rachel Bloom won one for Outstanding Original Music And Lyrics. After she accepted her Emmy someone asked the actress/songwriter what is next for her now that Crazy Ex Girlfriend is, sadly, over.

That is when she decided to tell everyone, “I’m pregnant, so that is what is next for me.” She is three months along and she can’t wait to tell her child “that she was with me when this happened which is really f*cking cool.”

This the first child for Bloom and How I Met Your Mother writer Dan Gregor. The expecting parents have been married since 2015 and started dating in 2009.

Hopefully, this will inspire her to do a show about motherhood for her next project. Actually, I don’t care what it is about, I just want her unique style back on my television as soon as possible.

Crazy Ex Girlfriend says goodbye tonight
April 5th, 2019 under Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. [ Comments: none ]


Today is a sad day for musical television, and TV in general, because Crazy Ex Girlfriend is ending its run on The CW at 8p.

Last week, Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) went on three dates to decide which man she would spend the rest of her life with. Her first date was with Josh Chan (Vincent Rodriguez III), the man she moved to West Covina for and almost married. The next one was with her former boss, the very wealthy Nathaniel (Scott Michael Foster). Finally, she went out with Greg (Skylar Astin), the man who she seems meant to be with. All three dates were perfect in their own special way, making her decision even more impossible.

Tonight, she is ready to reveal who won her heart on Valentine’s Day. Which one will it be? I am rooting for Nathaniel, but the other two also have a good shot. Thankfully, I am not the one who has to decide. Rebecca does and she picks…

After she makes her pick, the show flashes forward a year and we get to see what will happen to favorite singing cast. Who will get their happy endings?

I am getting a sad one because I am going to miss a show that gave songs like Heavy Boobs and I Gave You a UTI. There is nothing else like it and I doubt there ever will be again.

Therefore, I am hitting one last high note for them.

Happy New Year FOTB! Who quits Hell’s Kitchen? Crazy Ex Girlfriend brings heart
February 1st, 2019 under ABC, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Gordon Ramsay. [ Comments: none ]


It is time for the Lunar New Year on Fresh Off the Boat tonight at 8p in ABC and this year the Huangs are not celebrabaing alone. Julius (Reggie Lee), Elaine (Ming-Na Wen) and their son Horace (Jimmy O. Yang) will be joining the this year.

As soon as Julius and Horace get there, they get into a verbal fight that turns physical. They do this annually so that this way they can start the year off clean. When Louis (Randall Park) gets into a fight with one of his sons (Hudson Yang, Forrest Wheeler and Ian Chen), he decides to the same. Will it have the same effect on their father/son relationship?

They are not the only ones who are fighting, so are Jessica (Constance Wu) and her mother-in-law (Lucille Soong). Elaine thinks she can mend things between the two women, but she makes things worse. How much worse?

You don’t want to miss another great episode that also teaches about the Chinese New Year.


Then at 9p on Fox, things are really heating up in Hell’s Kitchen for the final four. The night starts off innocent enough with a challenge that has the final four cooks preparing a dish tableside for chefs to judge. It is a relaxing, yet awkward day prize for the winner of the challenge. Even the dinner service goes smootly as they each take a turn at running the line.

Then when it comes time to put two people up for elimination, one of the chefs put themselves up. Is it Bret? Mia? Motto? Or Ariel? Why are they doing it? How will Gordon Ramsay react? What does it mean for the finale?

You just have to tune in for a truly shocking episode because I ain’t going to tell you.


Also at 9p but over on The CW, it is time for the Crazy Ex Girlfriend to get wet. Rebecca (Rachel Bloom) convinces Greg (Skylar Astin) to go to a water park with her. Only thing is that he hates it. He hates everything but her. It is because he loves her that he suffered through it. When she realize that, they get into a big fight.

Rebecca has not been keeping up with her therapy and her doctors are worried about her. They have every reason to be worried. After her fight with Greg, she does the unthinkable and she knows she needs help. Will she do what they want her to do?

She is not the only one. Paula (Donna Lynne Champlin) has a lot on her plate: work, studying for the bar exam, her kids and everything else, and it is all catching up to her. She does not have time to stop even though her body is telling her to relax. What will she do?

Did I mention there is a really great solo for Greg tonight? His best one since I Gave You A UTI. For some reason, I feel like that was someone else? Because it was! But the point is, you will be singing this one for a while.

Just like the other songs. On that note, on April 5th after the series finale, The CW is going to air a concert special with the cast singing some of the fans’ favorite songs throughout the show’s run. I hope we get My First Penis and Heavy Boobs. What do you want to hear?
