Find out what happened on Friends Behind Closed Doors
April 28th, 2019 under Friends (cast), Reelz. [ Comments: none ]

Whether you loved or hated Friends, you have to admit it is a phenomenon. Tonight at 9p on Reelz, we learn more about the sitcom on Friends: Behind Closed Doors. Throughout the two hour episode, we will hear from people who worked on the show, journalistic fans, and the original cast from old interviews. They will tell stories we have never heard, share details that will shock you and answer so many questions you did not know you wanted the answer to.

They will tell us how they cast all six friends. Who auditioned for Monica and Chandler and did not get the role? They wanted Jennifer Aniston for Monica and Courteney Cox for Rachel. Both actresses convinced them to do otherwise. Who came in with an injured nose? Which actress came close to playing Rachel but did not get the part because she was pregnant? Who went up to then-President of the NBC, Warren Littlefield, just before Friends and asked if it is ever going to happen to her? Which actors had other commitments? One was committed to a pilot that did not get picked up. While one of the actresses was on another show at the time and the other network would not let her go. Therefore, NBC screwed with CBS to make sure that show got cancelled. How? You have to watch to find out.

The network thought the cast was too young, so they wanted to add a seventh friend who was older. They thought a cop buddy would help bring in the older audience. The creators did not like that, so they added their parents instead. Which actress started on the show 2 days after giving birth? She literally got home from the hospital with her son and they asked her to be on the set the next day. She was not stupid, she agreed to do it. Lauren Tom, who played Ross’ girlfriend Julie, says the live audience booed her when they filmed her scenes. While she got booed, which scene got the most applauds?

Did you know season 8 was supposed to be its last? What made them agree to do a ninth season? Did you know Matthew Perry and Julia Roberts briefly dated around the time she appeared on the show? What storyline did the cast hate? Hint we hated it too.

These are just a few of the many things you will learn on this special. Fans of the show, and people like me who are so over it, will enjoy it. Whether you watched every episode or if you just heard of it, you will enjoy it because it gives you insight into how a show like this comes about.


The Kennedys – After Camelot is the story of life after JFK and RFK’s death
April 2nd, 2017 under Reelz. [ Comments: none ]

In 2011, Reelz gave us The Kennedys and tonight at 9p, they continue their sad, cursed story in The Kennedys – After Camelot.

In June 1968, Robert F Kennedy was running for President and it looked like he was going to be the second Kennedy in the White House. A bullet cut that dream short. His wife, holds a vigil of his brain dead body refusing to pull the plug. Edward Kennedy (Matthew Perry) does everything in his power to try to get her do it, but he to cannot do it. Finally, Jackie Kennedy (Katie Holmes) is asked to do it and she does. I did not know that part of the story, so I Googled it to find out that is really what happened. The first many new things I learned about The Kennedys from this two part miniseries.

Now, that Bobby is dead. The only way for Camelot to continue is if Teddy takes his place and runs for President. He is not ready and his family is not ready for him to do it. Therefore, he decides not the run.

Meanwhile, Jackie is dating Aristotle Onassis and things are getting serious between them. He wants to marry her and he asks The Kennedys for their permission. While he asked her family, he didn’t ask his own and they don’t like her. They think she is just after his money. The married couple now spend time going back and forth between the US and Greece.

Back, in The States Ted Kennedy is married, but not faithfully. One night he meets Mary Jo Kopechne in Chappaquiddick and gives her ride back to the hotel even though he is drunk. His drives the car off of a bridge into the water and channel. She does not. He goes back to the hotel leaving her in the car. Everything he does next will destroy his Presidential dreams and haunt him the rest of his life.

The first part of the miniseries ends tonight with Teddy getting his wife to make a call to Mary Jo Kopechne’s parents trying to stop the autopsy and preserve his future. Next week, After Camelot concludes with how his whole life was ruined because of that night. While Jackie realizes the true love of her life was always her son.

What makes The Kennedys – After Camelot so intriguing, is this is not the story that is normally told about the Kennedys, usually it is only about the rise and falls to a bullet of John F Kennedy and his brother Bobby. The miniseries shows us how hard surviving the ’60s was for the Kennedys. It was even harder than losing two of them to assassinations. Because of that you want to see how Camelot really ended due to cancers and a plane crash.


The Kennedys: After Camelot tells the sad end of America’s Royalty
January 13th, 2017 under Reelz, Tom Cruise/Katie Holmes/Suri. [ Comments: none ]

Reelz announced today that the 4-hour 2-part sequel to their huge hit The Kennedys will air on April 2nd and April 9th and I can’t wait to see it.
We have seen the love story of Jackie and John F Kennedy told many different ways, but this is the story of her life and her in-laws’ lives after JFK was shot and killed on that fateful day. As we know, Jackie married again to a billionaire and it wasn’t a happy one. Her son finally found love after his mother died and shortly afterwards he joined her up in heaven. Then there are The Kennedys, Robert F Kennedy was assassinated while running for President in 1968 and that is where this story begins. His younger brother Ted never got to hold that office after he was involved in a scandal that he never recovered from.
When John F Kennedy was assassinated on November 23, 1963, the family’s legacy went down with him. This is that story and it needs to be told. I can’t think of anyone better to tell it than Katie Holmes reprising her role of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Matthew Perry joining the sequel as her brother-in-law Ted Kennedy.

Tonight at 9p on Reelz, a new series gives us a new theory of who might’ve killed Marilyn Monroe. The season premiere of National Enquirer Investigates will focus on the life and death of America’s favorite sex symbol.
The episode documents her rise to fame, her sucess and the men in her life which ultimately might’ve lead to her death. She was beautiful on the outside, but her past created an ugly life for her. A life full of booze, drugs and men that were bad for her. They were some of the biggest athletes, writers, actors and politicians of the time. But which one of them might’ve wanted to end her life or did she end it on her own?
It is a mystery that remains unsolved to this day, but now there are more questions that need to be answered thanks to tonight’s show. Just when I think I know everything about Marilyn Monroe an intriguing special like this one gives you new insight.
In the coming weeks, we will get more insight into the lives of Hollywood’s most notorious names like Charlie Sheen, O.J. Simpson, Whitney Houston and Bobbi Kristina Brown, Natalie Wood and Elvis Presley on the Reelz docuseries.


Fame Kills and Behind the Screams get Reelz tonight!
September 26th, 2015 under Reelz. [ Comments: none ]

Being a star can be glamorous, and for a few it can be deadly. Tonight at 8p on Reelz Channel, they look at the latter on Fame Kills.
Debbie Flores-Narvaez was a beautiful woman, who worked in a law firm in Maryland, when she decides she wants more out of life. She leaves everything behind and moves to Vegas to become a Showgirl with the hopes of becoming a star. On the night of her big break, she vanishes without a clue. No one knows what happens to her. Her sister begs the cops to look in to her disappearance, but they dismiss it as something that happens in Vegas all the time. Someone goes missing for a few days and returns from a trip with someone they just met. Then when they get a phone call with a lead about what might’ve happened to her, they take the case seriously. What they discovered happened to her, will not only shock all that are involved but you too.
Unlike other murder investigation shows like this one, Fame Kills is fast paced and doesn’t put you to sleep before the case is solved.

Then at 9p, Behind the Screams will scare you more than any horror movie because it is what horror movies are based on.
I was naive to think that horror movies came out of the sick minds of the person who wrote them, and I was wrong about some of them. Did you know that Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Silence of the Lambs are all based on Ed Gein? He was a man who lived in Wisconsin and no one suspected of him until he slipped up. Then when cops discovered what was in his house, they were scarred for the rest of their lives. Before we get to that, you will see how Plainfield, Wi was rocked by strange disappearances and a grave robber and the two were connected the whole time but no one knew it. The man behind it all was right there in plain sight, and yet they didn’t see it. Why? You just have to tune in to find out.
I will warn you that this horror movie fanatic, will be sleeping with the lights on tonight after watching this hour of captivating television. They say the truth is stranger than fiction, and this series proves that they weren’t kidding.
Both Fame Kills and Behind the Screams are docuseries for the younger generation. If the shows on A&E, Travel Channel and Discovery put to you sleep, then these two will keep your interest from the beginning of the episode until the end. The narrators voices aren’t as flat and calming as the other ones and I know you know what I mean. So make sure to tune in for two shows that will intrigue you week after week.
