Who You Gonna Binge?
Since the weather outside is frightful for most of us this Thanksgiving break, many are going to stay away from the cineplex and binge in their comfy jammies. Some pundits fear that with the bad weather, as well as premiere of Martin Scorsese’s epic The Irishman on Netflix, this year could have some of the worst box-office totals in recent memory.
And with Netflix sending out goodies like this cushy throw, bottle of The Irishman Cabernet Sauvignon and a panettone to encourage us to stay in and binge, who needs to get dressed? “It’s what it is.”

Lizzie McGuire is Back!
As if there weren’t enough reasons to watch Disney+, here’s one more: the sweet show Lizzie McGuire is returning, but now she’s all grown up! The new story picks up as Lizzie McGuire is just about to turn 30. She seemingly has it all – her dream job as an assistant to a fancy New York City Interior Designer, her dream guy and a picturesque Brooklyn apartment – but things aren’t always as they seem. With a little help from her old friends and some new ones to come, her well-meaning family and her 13-year-old alter-ego in animated form, Lizzie navigates the ups and downs of adulthood.
Reprising their roles are: Hilary Duff as Lizzie McGuire, Hallie Todd as Jo McGuire, Robert Carradine as Sam McGuire, Adam Lamberg David “Gordo” Gordon and Jake Thomas as Matt McGuire.
Real Housewives of… Salt Lake City?
At first I thought it was a prank, but it appears to be true. Andy Cohen announced at BravoCon (yes, it’s a thing) in New York City that The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City is coming to Bravo in 2020.
“You didn’t see it coming but I have to tell you, in Utah, you have the majesty of the mountains, the Mormon religion, an exclusive community of people who have very successful businesses who live in their own universe,” said Cohen, who serves as executive producer of the franchise. He’s not wrong.
Amazon’s MODERN LOVE is Guranteed to Make You Cry
Amazon’s Modern Love, a series in which each episode tells a separate story about love in NYC, is one of the most heart wrenching series I’ve ever seen. Just when you think it can’t get any more romantic/dramatic/moving, the next episode sends you racing for the Kleenex box. And the star power! Dev Patel, Ed Sheehan, Tina Fey, Julia Garner, Katherine Keener, Anne Hathaway (who will absolutely rip your heart out) and more.
In honor of the show, Amazon had an event at the H Club and allowed us to photograph our own modern love stories. Check out mine below.
Take a Bite of Apple TV’s The Morning Show
Stop whatever you’re binging and tune in right now to Apple TV’s riveting new The Morning Show, which I think is one of the best new series our there. You’ll see stars like Jennifer Aniston, Reese Witherspoon and Steve Carrell doing some of their best acting ever. Do I smell awards nominations?
Frankie Says Thankie to Disney+
In honor of their launch yesterday Disney+ gave BioFit 360 Ambassadog Frankie Feldman one of their special dog-friendly pup cakes, and I got a colorful sprinkled mini cupcake as well! Woo Hoo! So of course I had to run home and subscribe. Frankie can’t wait to see the live action version of Lady and the Tramp, although he’s still bummed he wasn’t cast. As for me? The Mandalorian is first on my agenda.
Fresh Off the Boat to Dock Permanently
In case you haven’t heard, Fresh Off the Boat is ending its six-season run early next year, with an hour-long bon voyage series finale on Friday, February 21 at 8p. “We couldn’t be prouder of this game-changing show and the impact it has had on our cultural landscape,” said Karey Burke, President of ABC Entertainment. “The success of Fresh Off the Boat has helped pave the way for inclusion throughout the industry.” I’ll miss it!
What Could Be Better Than Billions?
As if Showtime’s Billions isn’t great enough, some of my absolute favorite actors Julianna Margulies (The Good Wife) and Corey Stoll (House of Cards) have been signed to guest star in multiple episodes of Season Five. Already in production, the new season is slated to premiere sometime in the Spring of 2020.
Lance Bass and HGTV Kiss and Make Up for the Holidays
Former NYSNCer Lance Bass may have been outbid by HGTV for the iconic Brady Bunch house, but it looks like there are no grudges being held. Bass is hosting an HGTV holiday special, Outrageous Holiday Houses, to run on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, November 28, at 11pm. It will spotlight such festive towns as Santa Claus, Indiana, and North Pole, Alaska. And it’s all produced by Scott Brothers Entertainment. In fact, it kicks off with Property Brother Drew Scott and his wife, Linda Phan, in LA.
I’ll watch…er…record it. The tryptophan will have kicked well before that.
