Industry News!

Really? Really? I can't believe the news today.
Not know what I am talking about? UGH..let me just start with UGH.

In television: There is a new Melrose Place! Yes just like 90210, they have made a new Melrose Place. Are there really not enough ideas out there? Here's an idea, just get Netflix and rent the originals, or SOAP net usually runs them. Really? With so many great shows getting canceled left and right, Dirty Sexy Money, Eli Stone, Pushing Daises, (plug plug for ABC inserted LOL)...Without A Trace is gone! But hey, not to worry, we are putting a new version of Melrose Place on the air. What's next, new Party Of Five? Maybe a new Wonder Years?

In film: Remake of Footloose!!!
It has been confirmed that 'Gossip Girl' actor Chace Crawford is set to star in the lead role of the remake of 'Footloose'. UGH...Dirty Dancing the musical and a new Footloose..
Okay then, new Ferris Bueller, and new Back To The Future are just around the corner.

Okay writers, start writing, because it seems that Hollywood has run out of ideas.

I'm just sayin'!


  1. Welcome to the Blogosphere!

    I thought "Ferris Bueller" was already in pre-production a few years ago, seriously.

    The problem with Hollywood, is that corporate people run the studios now and it shows in the movies that greenlit. At least when the studios had boutique "independents," there was a chance they might release a good film here and there.

    Now it's just remakes or they'd rather put out a videogame, or a half-baked romcom that doesn't have anything script-wise beyond the initial concept, than take a chance on an original idea.

  2. BTW, I haven't seen the new "90210" and I don't intend to see the new "Melrose," beyond them being spoofed on "The Soup." All of the UPN/WB/CW night soap operas were just watered-down versions of the Spelling originals, so why would I believe that they could justice to the originals?

  3. i'm not a fan of remakes... nor pretend sequels. too many of both abound. if it ain't broke...etc.

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
