I grew up on reruns of The Golden Girls, The Facts of Life, Keeping Up Appearances, Laverne & Shirley, I Love Lucy and Designing Women. I've been addicted to television ever since.

My newer televisual obsessions include: Cougar Town, The Good Wife, Veep, Archer, Arrested Development, Orange is the New Black, Mindy Project, Girls, AbFab, Miranda, 30 Rock, True Blood, Orphan Black, Game of Thrones, AHS, The Office, Supernatural and of course The Real Housewives.

Portugal are my favorite football team. Ronaldo, Veloso, Moutinho, Meireles are my favorite footballers.

My dream: creating my own series.
Or publishing a book.

I'm fluent in French, Portuguese, Spanish. Graduated from Cal, and starting a UCLA program.

 

I don’t know who J.R. Ramirez is, but I like that he’ll join Arrow as Wildcat. Which reminds me, I need to binge-watch Arrow.

'Fringe' star Blair Brown heads over to 'OITNB'

Unlike Mary Steenburgen, who was cast as Pornstache’s mother, Brown’s role has yet to be revealed. Who will she be: New competition for Red, perhaps a sibling or relative of hers? Norma’s vocal sister? Any guesses?

Are we all going to pretend like Holly didn’t grab her son’s ass after his stepfather hit him, like a mother normally does?

After two episodes of this current and sixth installment of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, I realized I’m losing interest in the franchise responsible for my Real Housewives addiction. Gone are no-nonsense Caroline Manzo, her sister-in-law Jacqueline Laurita, and Kathy Wakile along with her irascible but loveable sister, Rosie. Without them the show feels hollow, even for a reality series. Plus most of my favorites that make me laugh-out-loud are on hiatus. (Come back, The Mindy Project, Broad City and Veep!). All that combined has left me with a void for entertaining, occasionally dramatic, borderline chaotic television. Luckily TLC has decided to satiate my needs through funny lady, Leah Remini.

Leah Remini: It’s All Relative is a harmless, hilarious family affair anchored by former King of Queens star, Remini; her husband, daughter, mother, stepfather, sister, brother-in-law, and British nanny round out the cast of oddballs. It’s part Joan Knows Best and part After Lately. I say the former because of the familial element; the latter because the confessional interviews, especially the ones with Remini and her mother, Vicki, are a comic delight.

While the series is one designed to follow Leah’s real-life, you can’t help but suggest that plenty of the stories sound like outlandish plots in a classic comedy show. For example, there’s the episode which features Vicki getting a horrendous but colorful tattoo, dubbed a “tramp-stamp;” the time where Leah offers to buy her sister breast implants for her birthday; plus the episode which was a mock-funeral for Vicki. It’s that atypical charm that makes the show worth watching.

Two more factors that aid the show: the occasional celebrity cameo (what up, RuPaul and Jennifer Lopez) and the fact that Leah Remini is just plain funny. The biggest shame—isn’t that she now shares a network with Honey Boo Boo, or that she’s on TV Land’s The Exes— is that she doesn’t have her own sitcom to showcase her comedy talents. For now, It’s All Relative will do.

Lea Michele set to guest start on the seventh and final season of ‘SOA’

According to TVLine, Michelle will be playing a truck stop waitress. I really would prefer she play a stripper with a heart (and voice) of gold, or a high-end call girl. But you know, single mom waitress is cool, too.

I think I need to start watching Sleepy Hollow because, hello, Tom Mison.

I just found out that Cristiano Ronaldo and Real Madrid were having their training sessions at UCLA last week. I was on campus but in class all day, so I didn’t get to see them. As Ronaldo said after our Euro Cup 2012 lost to Spain, “Que injusticia!”
