Call Answered: From "The Brady Bunch" to "Diff'rent Strokes" to "This Is Us," family TV shows are some of my favorite ones to watch. One series I have been enjoying is "The Fosters" on Freeform TV. I was over the moon when I called and Sherri Saum answered. It was great learning what Sherri loves about the show, how it relates to her own life, & what roles she didn't book as well as one role that made her jump up & down with excitement! "The Fosters" 5th Season begins July 11 on Freeform TV!
Call Answered: I was a HUGE "All My Children" fan. In 2013, I heard a new show being developed called "Tainted Dreams," directed/produced by Sonia Blangiardo, & starring several "AMC" alumni. I couldn't wait to see this show. 4 years later, "Tainted Dreams" has found its home on Amazon (now Emmy nominated)! If you are a soap fan, "Tainted Dreams" is the show for you! Come behind-the-drama & find out the real stories that made Sonia such a success + the tales that helped create "Tainted Dreams!"
Call Answered: When I found out Rebecca Budig was on "General Hospital," I knew I had to dive back into the world of soaps. What I didn't realize is that I would become a fan of her co-star Donnell Turner, who plays "Curtis Ashford." When I got a request to interview Donnell, I went to Port Charles! By the time our interview was over, I found a humble man with a big heart, an infectious zest for life, & a desire to help others. Donnell can be seen on "General Hospital" weekdays at 3pm on ABC!

My 12-year-old self couldn't believe I entered the world of "Bayside High," while my adult self was so honored to interview the man behind "The Bell!"
Call Answered: I love a versatile actor, one that has worked in film, television, and theatre. What I love more is an actor, whom after being on a hit show, still comes back to the stage. This is just one reason I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to interview "Bones'" Eric Millegan. It was great geeking out on musical theatre & getting to the bare essentials of his time on FOX TV's hit show "Bones," as well as learning of the "Bone" chilling news Eric has to share!
Call Answered: As much as I love theatre, I love television equally as much! "Little House On The Prairie" was one of the biggest TV shows of the 70s/80s and Alison Arngrim, played the "Prairie" bitch, Nellie Oleson.

Call Answered: I am a huge "Golden Girls" fan. So when I was approached to interview Jason B. Schmidt about his one-man show, errr, one-woman show, "Bea Arthur: Astral Dame," I was thankful for being a friend! In "Bea Arthur: Astral Dame," Jason B. Schmidt stars as the Tony/Emmy Award-winning star of "Maude," "Mame" and "The Golden Girls" performing some of Bea's signature numbers as only Bea can deliver. "Bea Arthur: Astral Dame" returns to The Laurie Beechman Theatre on Saturday, January 30 at 7pm!
Call Misdialed: I must have dialed the wrong number originally as I just found some lost footage from my interview with two-time Emmy nominee Anna Chlumsky as we discussed her starring on the HBO Emmy Award winning series "Veep" from when Anna was starring on Broadway in "Living for Love!" So glad to have the right number now!
Call Redialed: Growing up, I loved watching Tony and two-time Golden Globe winner Linda Lavin on the hit TV series "Alice!" I couldn't wait to see what would happen each week at Mel's Diner! Now, as an adult, I still love watching Linda on TV, like in last season's "Sean Saves The World," but I also love seeing Linda on the Broadway stage and watching her night club acts! Linda's drive, talent, and security in who she is, is a big inspiration to me! Like Linda, I am "Starting Over" in this new decade of my life. I'm excited for what's to come, which includes getting to see Linda's new show "Starting Over" at 54 Below. Linda will be lighting up the 54 Below stage once again September 7, 10, 11, and 12 at 7pm performing Broadway favorites, standards, jazz, and even some songs she learned from the great girl singers!
Call Answered: I am big fan of young actresses! They are our next generation of talent! When Hailey Sole was presented to me to interview, I jumped at this opportunity. This young starlet already has a resume of hit shows under her belt "Criminal Minds," "Private Practice," "The Middle," and "Parks and Recreation." What makes me even more excited about Hailey is that she is starring on the new Netflix series "Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp," which will be debuting on Netflix on July 31!
