Home Is Where The Julia Is

We may never get a My Best Friend’s Wedding 2, but we have the next-best thing. Sorta. This Friday, Amazon’s Prime Video division premieres Homecoming starring Julia Roberts with Dermot Mulroney a little further down the casting list. But don’t expect any Dionne Warwick sing-alongs in this suspenseful, conspiracy-theory drama also featuring non-MBFW stars…

Burst Your Bubble

The Two Americas. We hear this term a lot these days, but it would be difficult denying the reality. Funny enough, we were just having a conversation with a friend yesterday about trying to “understand the other side” when expressing the grief and bewilderment of family members we love who…

Gray For Pay

As you might expect, we get pitched a lot of crowdfunding projects to write about. And most of them never make the cut. Be grateful. So you know when we do feature a crowdsourcing campaign that we truly believe in the product. Case in point: The Disappointments. Never have we laughed out loud…

When Arthur Met Ben

Just when the world feels like it can’t get any bleaker, we get a reminder that there is love all around us. Sometimes easy to obtain, other times difficult. Today, the book we all need in our lives comes out. What If It’s Us brings together queer YA fiction superstars Becky Albertalli…

This Donna’s Primo

New music alert! Sometimes a persistent publicist can be our best friend. We get pitched a lot of albums from recording artists that range from megastars to completely obscure. But pressure to listen to a new album from a young talent named Donna Missal gave us something fun to listen…

Hip Locks & Tongue Pops

Forget the Zombie Apocalypse. Dancing Queenmageddon is upon us. Yesterday, Cher’s new album, Dancing Queen, debuted.  One week later, Alyssa Edwards’ new Netflix show of the same name premieres. Order up some Dairy Queen while listening to Cher’s ABBA covers before you watch the first episode of the reality series and you’ve…

Anything-But-Plain Jane

Most of us only know Jane Fonda from her work in Hollywood. Or watching our moms dance around the house in aerobic frenzies. 9 to 5, Barbarella and Grace & Frankie all have special places in our heart. But for many, she will always be known as the embodiment of controversy for her…
