Degrassi’s Stefan Brogren is engaged!
January 29th, 2019 under Degrassi. [ Comments: none ]

Even though it seems like Stefan Brogren has been married to Degrassi his whole life, he is actually single. In fact, the actor, who grew up on TV, is getting married for the first time.

He shared the news on social media with the above photo and wrote, “Don’t know if @michellesfunny said yes to me or the ring. Either way, she’s stuck with me now. #loveyou #engaged.” When you are going to marry a comedian like Michelle Shaughnessy, you have to make the news of your engagement a funny.

He is not the only one who had some fun with the announcement, so did Snake’s BFF Joey Jeremiah. Pat Mastroianni wrote, “Am I crazy 😜 or would DegrassiPalooza be the best venue for a wedding? 👰 🎩 I’m just spitballing …….. think about it.” This June several cast members throughout Degrassi’s run will be reuniting for their fans with a 2-day event. Do we hear June wedding with Mastroianni as his best man and performance by Zit Remedy? I hope so because everybody wants something!


What if Degrassi’s Joey Jeremiah and Spike got married?

Back during the OG Degrassi Spike and Joey Jeremiah never hooked up in Junior High and High. Mostly because she was busy being a mom to her daughter Emma, and they were dating other people. But what if she did not wind up with his best friend Snake, what would they have looked like as a married couple?

Over the weekend, Amanda Stepto and Pat Mastroianni gave us a glimpse of that reality would look like during one of their Degrassi tour dates to let fans interact with casts from both generations.

You know what they are perfect together. Since everybody wants something, I want to see a revival with them as a Mr. & Mrs. How awesome would that be?


Degrassi’s Jake Epstein just broke a lot of hearts

Degrassi: The Next Generation’s fan favorite Jake Epstein married his favorite woman, Designated Survivor’s Vanessa Smythe, this Saturday in Toronto in front of family and friends.

His TV adoptive dad, Pat Mastroianni, shared a photo that Derrick Chua took of the happy couple as they said, “I do!” Joey Jeremiah also wrote, “Mazel Tov to Jake Epstein & Vanessa Smythe. Oh how my boy has grown. 🤠👍Craig Manning Degrassi. Wishing you both a lifetime of love and happiness.”

Not much is known about their big day but the Mr. & Mrs. created a website about their wedding. It includes photos of the actors throughout their relationship that, according to Epstein, began when he was just 15 years old. Over half of their lives of being in love with each other, with the rest of their lives to go.

Congrats to the beautiful couple!

Update: The blushing bride, Vanessa Smythe, shared a photo of one of the first kisses as The Epsteins.


Drake got the Degrassi: TNG cast together for a reunion and I’m not Upset
June 14th, 2018 under Degrassi, Drake. [ Comments: 1 ]

Back in 2001, Drake went by Aubrey Graham and he was on a little show called Degrassi: The Next Generation. Now 17 years later, Wheelchair Jimmy thought it was time for a high school reunion and got the OG cast together for his music video I’m Upset.

The reunion included Stacey Farber, Adamo Ruggiero, Lauren Collins, Jake Epstein, Christina Schmidt, Andrea Lewis, Melissa McIntyre, LinLyn Lue, Stefan Brogren, Jake Goldsbie, Marc Donato, Dalmar Abuzeid, A.J. Saudin, Miriam McDonald, Cassie Steele, Nina Dobrev, Sarah Barrable-Tishauer, Paula Brancati, Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith. The rapper even made sure to invite Ephraim Ellis, the actor who made him Wheelchair Jimmy.

My favorite part of the video is when we heard Snake rap. Who knew Brogren could do that? Dare I say it, he might even be better than Drake? Granted those of us who watched the OG Degrassi knew that from when he was in The Zit Remedy!

Talking about zits, can we talk about how the class after Drake’s all turned out to be hot? His class all look the same, the next class went from geeks to on fleek.

When it comes to the video itself, I hated it. it was too dark for me. Degrassi touches on dark subjects, but it is still a feel-good show. This shows they all grew up to be f*cked up. Instead of remembering them like they were in this video, I will choose to remember them as they are in this behind-the-scenes photo that Lauren Collins aka Paige shared. That is the Degrassi we know and love!


A Degrassi High fan’s wet dream!
April 12th, 2018 under Degrassi, Wet dream. [ Comments: none ]

Before there was the Degrassi you know today on Netflix, there was one the parents of the fans of the reboot used to watch. It was originally called Degrassi Junior High and its follow-up Degrassi High.

People who were fans of the original still love it just as much today as they did then, None more than the Canadians where the show is shot. About a year ago, Pat Mastroianni aka Joey Jeremiah (the one with the hat) started reuniting cast members at conventions. Recently, he started a Degrassi Tour, bringing the show to theaters around the country.

They will have another day in June, and they created a poster for it. One that looks familiar to fans of both Degrassis because it is a parody of Stranger Things. Instead of those kids, we get to see Spike, Snake, BLT, Wheels and the others together again like we knew them back then. Such an amazing poster, I want to blow it up and hang it up on my wall. The only thing that is missing is the twins. Where are they?

Plus, now that Toronto is warming up, I am so tempted to fly up there for the bus reunion tour. When it comes to who will be there, they will be announcing that in the coming weeks. Sadly, Neil Hope, who played Wheels (He is in the center with glasses), will not be there. He passed away in 2007.

Mastroianni, who posted the photo, hinted to Netflix that they should revive the series. I completely agree with him. Why the streaming service is not showing the original is beyond me. If they did, I bet they would do a revival. Those Degrassis were the best! I wished my high school life was like that and it never was. They had it all, sex, drugs and rock’n’roll!

UPDATE: Pat Mastroianni just sent me the second poster and this one includes the twins (Maureen and Angela Deiseach) and Lucy (Anais Granofsky). This poster makes me wish even more that someone would bring back their show. Degrassi was our sex ed, say no to drugs and you will have friends until the end, teacher. We would watch it over the weekend and talk about it when we went back to school on Monday. It was our show and not our parents, Now, it could be our show and not or kids! Everybody wants something and this is I want.
