Three thousand years ago, the greatest sailors in the world voyaged across the vast Pacific, discovering the many islands of Oceania. But then, for a millennium, their voyages stopped – and no one knows exactly why. From Walt Disney Animation Studios comes “Moana,” a sweeping, CG-animated feature film about an adventurous teenager who sails out on a daring mission to save her people. During her journey, Moana (voice of Auli‘i Cravalho) meets the mighty demigod Maui (voice of Dwayne Johnson), who guides her in her quest to become a master wayfinder. 

Together, they sail across the open ocean on an action-packed voyage, encountering enormous monsters and impossible odds, and along the way, Moana fulfills the ancient quest of her ancestors and discovers the one thing she’s always sought: her own identity. Directed by the renowned filmmaking team of Ron Clements and John Musker (“The Little Mermaid,” “Aladdin,” “The Princess & the Frog”), produced by Osnat Shurer (“Lifted,” “One Man Band”), and featuring music by Lin-Manuel Miranda, Mark Mancina and Opetaia Foa‘i, “Moana” sails into U.S. theaters on Nov. 23, 2016

A sneak peek behind the set of The Real O’Neals! All ready for the holidays! #ABCTVEvent #TheRealONeals


****Disney provided an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event ****


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well not quite yet, it is still October, but on the set of The Real O'Neals they are quite festive! On a recent press trip, I was very fortunate to be able to visit the set of The Real O'Neals and check out their home for myself.  




First up was a tour of the set from David Windsor, creator and executive producer of the show, and two of the shows stars, Matt Shively who plays Jimmy, and Bebe Wood who plays Shannon, gave us a tour of the set. At the time of our visit the set was being transformed to film the upcoming Christmas episode of The Real O’Neals.  
"The O’Neal family continues its journey of self-discovery and growth, resulting from Kenny coming out and his parents, Eileen and Pat, getting divorced. After finally coming out, Kenny will discover that life outside the closet isn’t that easy. Luckily for him, his older brother, Jimmy, will always be there to offer his often-misguided advice. And finally, there’s Shannon, the youngest O’Neal, whose unique views on life make her wise beyond her years. 


ABC’s 'The Real O’Neals' stars Matt Shively as Jimmy, Bebe Wood as Shannon, Martha Plimpton as Eileen, Noah Galvin as Kenny and Jay R. Ferguson as Pat. (ABC/Bob D’Amico)

Eileen and Pat will continue to deal with starting their separate lives while still living under the same roof. Through it all, Aunt Jodi will be there offering her unusual brand of support, as the O’Neals continue to explore new relationships, friendships and acceptance of one another in the next, messier chapter of their lives”. 
The set was decorated in its Christmas finest, from the large beautifully decorated tree, to the little touches of poinsettias all around, and even a manger scene set up on the coffee table, the O’Neals are ready for the holidays. You would think having the house decorated from top to bottom would be enough for one episode right? 


Well the folks on the show take decorating very seriously and even decorate the outside set to show the snow, and give the outside a real winter feel. We got to see the bags and bags of “snow” and the rolls of “snow” as well. There was quite a lot of snow around the back and front yards of the O’Neal household.
Ever wonder what the sets of your favorite TV shows are like? Well this is something I always think of when I watch TV shows, yes this is odd I know, but I always wonder how much of this is real and what is on a set, and what this really looks like in person? 





The Real O’Neal’s set was just as neat and tidy as it looks like on TV. A home I would proudly call my own. If only I had the time to have an amazingly neat and clutter free home like this...is something on my wish list! The kitchen was lovely, and the dining room seemed like it was ready for a grand family get together.






I loved the personal touches, like the photos that seemed to be all around. Just like they are in my home. Why not celebrate and fill your home with memories? That is what I love to do.

David Windsor, creator and executive producer of the show let us know that there are about 125 people work that work on the set of The Real O’Neals and it takes 5 days for them to film and four days for them to set up. A lot of work goes into each episode, for the actors, writers, directors and the people behind the scenes.  I knew it took a lot, but 125 people...that is pretty impressive. 

One of the coolest parts for me on the set was visiting the “tiny house” built in the garage. My husband and I are really into the tiny house movement, we watch a few tiny house shows and really like the idea but actually being able to move into a tiny house, hmmm...I don’t think that is possible right now, maybe for our retirement house? 
But for now it was just fun to check out a tiny house (How will the tiny house be used in the show? Well in you will have to check out more of season 2 of The Real O'Neals) in person.  
Just a reminder there are only two more months until Christmas! I have so much more to do! Before we all stress out, let’s take some time tonight to have some good laughs, with The Real O'Neals and the entire ABC Tuesday night line up!

Saving money & energy with ENERGY STAR® Sound Bars/Dryers @BestBuy #bbyenergystar


The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free


In today’s day and age we’re all trying to go a little easier on the environment. It’s important to be responsible and leave this planet in better shape for future generations. I know my family is trying to be better, our electric provider lets us know each month how much power we used compared to our neighbors and I was appalled at how wasteful we are! Out of 100 neighbors we’re constantly in the 90’s and that’s costing us money and it’s costing the environment. 
Our refrigerator and dryer and old and I know that they’re not the best when it comes to being energy efficient. But something I didn’t realize was our sound bar! With the television being on as much as it is I shouldn’t be surprised at that, but I am! We’re taking steps to get better appliances to help everything, from the environment to our wallets. If you’re looking to upgrade your dryer or like us…sound bar, Best Buy is where you’ll want to head to.

A visit to the set of American Housewife, the new addition to the Tuesday night comedy lineup! #ABCTVEvent #AmericanHousewife


****Disney is providing an all-expense paid trip for me to cover this great event ****


When I was a kid, I had a night of comedy with the TGIF lineup, these days get ready for the TGIT (Thank god it’s Tuesday!) lineup!  Tonight is another great episode of American Housewife, episode 102 “The Nap” premieres at 8:30/7:30c. Have you had the chance to see this show? The show stars the hilarious Katy Mixon, and in my opinion this show is a must see! 
ABC’s “American Housewife” stars Daniel DiMaggio as Oliver, Meg Donnelly as Taylor, Katy Mixon as Katie Otto, Diedrich Bader as Greg and Julia Butters as Anna-Kat. ABC/Craig Sjodin

“Katie Otto, a confident, unapologetic wife and mother of three, raises her flawed family in the wealthy town of Westport, Connecticut, filled with “perfect” mommies and their “perfect” offspring. Katie’s perfectly imperfect world is upended when her neighbor’s decision to move notches her up from her ideal social standing and sets her on a path to ensure that doesn’t happen, regardless of the consequences”.  
Recently while on a press trip to LA, I was very fortunate to visit the set of the super funny new ABC show American Housewife. Now this wasn't a set visit like any other I have ever had before, we did not visit the typical set (the house and rooms inside) we got to check out the set on location! We were going to get a behind-the-scenes peek at the location shoot at First Christian Church in Studio City. What goes into putting a show together on location? A lot!
You have to move everything you could possibly need from the lot for filming at the location. From all of the filming equipment, to the costumes, to the food for everyone on the set, the stars trailers, and even an onsite school had to be set up for the kids.  After everything is in place, it is time to get the site ready for filming.
 At this on location spot American Housewife was filming for a holiday episode.  Did you know that most shows film their Halloween episode in August and the Holiday episode in September? They have to be ahead of the game to ensure that the episode is ready when it is scheduled to air.  Executive Producer Sarah Dunn brought us to where they were filming and showed us a bit of the set.
The set was amazing, they had a winter wonderland set up in the rectory of a local church. The set up featured holiday toy soldiers, giant candy canes and a huge teddy bear, it really felt like you were entering Santa’s Workshop! The set was filled with folks working on the show, you may not realize how many people go into making an episode of your favorite shows, yup you guessed it...a lot!
The crew did a great job making this rectory feel like to was a Christmas wonderland. We got to see Katy Mixon, Carly Hughes and Ali Wong prepare to film a scene. Each were practicing their lines and their facial expressions to make sure they got it exactly right when the cameras started rolling.
While on set we all met with Katy Mixon (“Katie Otto”), Leslie Bibb (“Val”), Carly Hughes (“Angela”) and Ali Wong (“Doris”). The ladies we able to pop in between filming and say hi and take pictures with us all.
Katy Mixon had the most adorable southern accent, I could have sat there and listened to her speak for the longest time! As soon as my husband saw the shot of Leslie Bibb and I he said "Isn't that the girl from Iron Man?" ever the superhero fan he recognized her from her role in the film.
Each were super nice and really were as excited to meet us as we were to meet them. While I was there I got a new job...as an actor on the show! Just kidding, but it was super cool to sit in one of these actors chairs, it made me seem all professional and stuff, ha ha.
Do you want to watch a show that may be more like your life, with its warts and all? Sure, watching reminds us to laugh, and to know we all have issues but we will make it through.  American Housewife is a breath of fresh air, a show that is a different kind of show, a show that revolves around the mother instead of mom just being a part of the show, mom is the star of the show. Much like she is in real life.
I checked out a few episodes of American Housewife and this show is super funny and real. From the unique family dynamic, to the body image acceptance and overall lightheartedness, I love the different characters, they are not static and the usual and this is a great thing. Does this seem like a show that is right up your alley? Well tune-in to the newest episode of American Housewife tonight 8:30/7:30c, in this episode it shows just how hard it can be for a housewife to take that ellusive beloved "nap". This is just the second episode, so you can get caught up quickly on your soon to be favorite show.
