The Morning Show’s second season is so much better than the first one
September 17th, 2021 under Apple TV+, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: 3 ]

I have to admit I was late to The Morning Show game because I am not a fan of Jennifer Aniston nor Reese Witherspoon. However, I gave in because of my hard news background and working at a national news network.

I was happy I did because I enjoyed it. I thought Aniston perfectly played the self I perceive her to be. A bitch! That and I liked how the story played out during the first season.

As much I adored it, the second season kicks the first one’s a$$. It is so good; I could not wait to see what happened next after each episode. It even made me even like Aniston, and I never thought that would happen. Damn you.

Before we get to all of that, you have to watch the season premiere episode, which is streaming on Apple TV+ now.

It starts out immediately after the season finale when Alex Levy (Aniston) and Bradley Jackson (Witherspoon) broke the news that the CEO knew that Mitch Kessler (Steve Carell) was using his power to sexually harass and sleep with several women on the show. The powder keg just went off, and there will be a lot of bodies left in its wake.

One of them being Alex. She lost her husband via divorce and her job, all in a short period of time. Now, she is living far away from New York City, writing a book. However, there is a book coming out about the UBA scandal from Maggie Brener (Marcia Gay Harden), and Alex is terrified by what is in it. All of that has caused her to basically have a mental breakdown. However, she is liking her private life the way it is.

Then there is Corey Ellison (Billy Crudup), who is the new CEO of UBA. The ratings for The Morning Show are down, and he needs to get them up. He thinks he can do that by bringing Alex back.

That is something Bradley is not going to want. The two of them have not spoken in months. Plus, there is another opening at UBA, and she wants it. Anything not to do another song and dance number in the morning. Oh yes, there is a song and dance number at the beginning of the episode. It is as magnificent as you think it will be.

Now that Chip (Mark Duplass) is working in local news somewhere tiny; he has been replaced. Stella Bak (Greta Lee) is the new President of News. She is 33 and came from the online world. She is sick of the old way and wants to bring UBA into the 21st Century. However, no one respects her from Cory all the way down the chain. Mia (Karen Pittman) has been promoted to EP of The Morning Show, and no one respects her either.

Basically, it is all a mess. But since the episode takes place on New Year’s Eve, everyone is looking forward to 2020 and starting anew. If only they knew the sh!t storm that will be coming their way in two months.

That’s right; they deal with the beginning of COVID-19 as the season goes on. They, like us. watched it go from something that was happening to China to happening in our own backyard.

I wish I could tell that COVID-19 was the worst thing they deal with throughout the season, but it is far from it. There is still so much going on behind the scenes that it is amazing any of them will come out of this alive.

But I have said too much. All I will say is that it is worth subscribing to Apple TV+, if you don’t have it already, for The Morning Show. Seriously, I still can’t believe I am saying this about a show Aniston is on, but her character is really vulnerable, and she plays it perfectly. But, again, I said too much.

So I will stop talking now and tell you to stream new episodes every Friday. It is just so so good.

Do you think this Jennifer Aniston interview is cringey?
September 9th, 2021 under Friends (cast), Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon did an interview on BBC’s The One Show yesterday, and people are saying the Friend was not very friendly towards Jermaine Jenas.

His co-host, Zoe Ball, asked Aniston about researching for her role in The Morning Show by working at Good Morning America. After she answered the question, Jenas concluded she was not a morning person and called her out on it to Witherspoon.

Well, I guess Aniston didn’t like that and asked him if she really implied that. Witherspoon confirmed that she is not one, but Aniston did not let it go.

As the interview went on, he asked Witherspoon about appearing on Friends and accidentally called her co-star Rachel instead of Jennifer. That seemed to be the final straw for Aniston.

But it wasn’t only her reaction to those moments that made it awkward. It was also the way she would interrupt Witherspoon to get the attention back on her. Something that some actors do because they cannot share the spotlight. And being in different locations did help the situation.

Do you think this interview made Aniston look as bad as people on the other side of the pond are making it to be? I am no fan of hers, but I don’t think it is as bad as Ball made out to be. This morning on her radio show, she declared, “We’re still all just getting over that moment of talking to Jennifer Aniston.”

Jennifer Aniston gives Reese Witherspoon the silent treatment

Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon are starring in Apple TV’s biggest series The Morning Show and their characters hate each other. Looks like that feeling is the same when the cameras are not rolling. At least in this video that Witherspoon shared. Then again if I were her Friends’ older sister, I too would not talk to her. You know because this joke is so totally corny, but not corny enough for me not to post.

What is the one thing Meryl Streep is bad at?
May 20th, 2019 under Ellen DeGeneres, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]


Meryl Streep seems to be perfect. The Oscar winner can play any role that is given to her even if it is an old rabbi. She can sing, act and dance. Is there anything she cannot do?

Today on Ellen, Reese Witherspoon revealed what that one thing is. It is…bowling. Witherspoon said that one night all the actresses from Big Little Lies went out bowling and Streep was actually deemed dangerous with the ball.

Now that we know that Streep is not perfect, it actually makes her even more perfect. That is unless you go bowling with her. Then you might need to wear perfection.

There is talk about a Sweet Home Alabama sequel!
April 17th, 2019 under Patrick Dempsey, Reese Witherspoon/Ryan Phillippe. [ Comments: none ]


Josh Lucas was on Good Morning America today and they asked him if there could ever be a sequel to his movie Sweet Home Alabama with Reese Witherspoon and Patrick Dempsey. Then he gave them and all of us a very sweet answer.

He says that he just worked on a movie with Andy Tennant, who wrote and directed SHA, and the two of them talked about it extensively while filming The Secret with Katie Holmes. Now they are lobbying for the follow-up film to be made.

Not only did he confirm they are talking about doing a sequel, but he also revealed what it is about at this stage in the planning game. Witherspoon is back in NYC raising their kids while he is in Alabama because they got a divorce. To make it worse for people who are Team Jake, Patrick Dempsey is still in the picture.

Someone call Disney because this movie needs to be made ASAP.
