If anyone knows me, then they know that I am obsessed with any type of entertainment that takes me back to the decade where it all started for me. So imagine my thrill when I got the chance to visit the set of "The Goldbergs" this month and I got to meet Sean Giambrone - the teen who plays Adam and even got a set tour from THE Adam Goldberg.

t's been a whirlwind week for me that started out in Los Angeles where I got the chance to visit the sets of two great ABC comedies - "The Goldbergs" and "Dr. Ken." I'm going to save my post about "The Goldbergs" for next week but for now, I want to make sure you tune into Dr. Ken - the ABC comedy starring Dr. Ken Jeong that's now in its second season. I had the chance to visit the set this week, speak with the cast members and watch a preview of their Halloween episode which airs tonight!

14322425_10153842674555205_7681594449315860957_n.jpg

If anyone knows me well, then you know that I'm a sap for classic movies. Not Gone with the Wind kind of classic, but more like St. Elmo's Fire and Bridget Jones Diary classic. So imagine my thrill when I received an invitation a few weeks back to attend the star studded premiere of the latest installment of that hilarious film franchise with the release of "Bridget Jones Baby" which opens today in theaters nationwide.

10 Reasons Why My Mom Reminds Me of Hillary Clinton

justlikeme.jpg

I had an epiphany last night while watching Chelsea Clinton deliver a heartfelt introductory speech about her mom, Hillary Rodham Clinton. As the child of a working mother who took on various roles in her career as an eductor from the time I was five until adulthood, I started to really think about Chelsea's personal stories about her mom and how they seemed to parallel my own life. While my mom never logged close to a million miles as Secretary of State, she did accomplish some amazing things in her career. Here's a list of 10 things my amazing mom Lenore Stoller has in common with the person who might become our next female president.

Back in Time with New Kids on the Block

RTB2_D002_10000b.jpg

I have to admit - no matter what type of music I listen to, my taste always takes me back to the same decade - the 80's. I strategically have my Sirius XM station automatically set to 80s' on 8 and 90's on 9 and as long as my kids don't wrest control of the music from my hands, I pretty much get to go back to the decades where I was a teenager with big hair, super bright make-up and an obsession with boy bands.

Jeff Probst Shares the Inside Scoop on Survivor!

Screen Shot 2016-02-17 at 7.07.11 PM.png

As a mom of two kids who are growing up way too fast, there's one thing that always brings us together...our favorite TV shows. So this week, when I got the chance to bring my son and his friend to a private screening and live streaming event for the 32nd season of Survivor, I have to say, I didn't know quite what to expect. You see, my son's friend is a die-hard Survivor fan so he couldn't wait to ask host Jeff Probst and some of the former Survivors a few insider questions about the show. Dylan on the other hand, hadn't watched the show before so this was going to be the first time he had ever experienced a screening and live celebrity event and I couldn't wait to see his reaction.

18 Year Old Pens Chizi's Tale, An Inspiring Children's Book that Gives Back

chizis2.jpg

I recently read an article in the New York Times about the generation that's striving to make a difference in our world. They're called Generation Z and I recently met an extraordinary teen who embodies the Generation Z spirit -- Jack Jones, an 18 year old high school senior and student athlete who has travelled to Africa every summer where he has learned the importance of preserving and protecting nature. The youngest of four children, Jack has just published a inspiring new children's book that helps raise awareness and educate children and their parents about the importance of saving Black Rhinos.

Why I Am Hopelessly Addicted to Younger

Watch_Younger_Cast_2.jpg

It started innocently enough. I caught a few promos of a new show featuring Sutton Foster and Debi Mazar and I was intrigued. A show about Liza, 40 something divorcee who was struggling to break back into the publishing world after a 15 year hiatus. Sounded totally plausible. But then, there was the twist. After being interviewed by the dreaded GenX nemesis...Millennials, Liza was doomed. She was deemed irrelevant, old, a mom who should just give up and pack it in. That is until she went out drinking with her BFF Maggie and they run into a 26 year old tattoo artist who actually thinks Liza is the same age as he is.

Must See Reality TV: The Briefcase on CBS

briefcase.jpg

Recently, I got the opportunity to get a sneak peek of "The Briefcase," a summer docu-series that premieres tonight (Wednesday, June 27, 8-9pm ET/PT) on CBS. The premise for the show seems pretty enticing. Give two deserving middle class families a briefcase that contains $101,000 and let them know that they can keep all of the money or give some or all of it away to a family that may need it more than them.

Sofia Vergara and Reese Witherspoon Make Hilarious Duo in "Hot Pursuit"

HotPursuit-Image1.jpg

My father-in-law has a really great saying that I often reference when I am invited to partake opportunities that I will never forget. "You can't put a price on a good time." And that's exactly what happened this week when I brought my daughter along to a screening of the new comedy "Hot Pursuit," starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofia Vergara. You see, the screening opportunity also came with the chance to meet the one and only Sofia Vergara and when my daughter caught wind of it, she literally begged me to bring her along.

A Very Special Date Night at the Carlton Hotel

Truth be told - my husband and I have not had a romantic weekend without our kids in a very long time. Between work, our kids, school, finances and our dog, we don't get much anymore. So when the PR team from the Carlton offered me the chance to take my hubby with me for a special night out on the town, I jumped at the chance.

The Girlfriend Getaway

10943737_10152641589605205_8783768352250845174_n.jpg

There is nothing that quite compares to seeing your friends from high school. Well, at least in my case, I've had a group of girlfriends that I've been close with since I was 15 years old. Sure, over the years, we've moved to different cities and there have been times where we don't get to talk or see one another, but no matter what, the moment we are together, it's like time has never passed.

PADDINGTON is in theaters NOW!

Paddington-Image18.jpg

I loved the books and even had the Paddington stuffed bear when I was little. Now in theatres, from the beloved novels by Michael Bond and producer David Heyman (HARRY POTTER), PADDINGTON tells the story of the comic misadventures of a young Peruvian bear (voiced by Ben Whishaw) who travels to the city in search of a home. Finding himself lost and alone, he begins to realize that city life is not all he had imagined - until he meets the kindly Brown family who read the label around his neck that says "Please look after this bear. Thank you." and offer him a temporary haven. It looks as though his luck has changed until this rarest of bears catches the eye of a museum taxidermist. Starring Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, and Nicole Kidman.
