'A Cinderella Story' For the Merriest of Holidays!


 Let me just say 'A Cinderella Story: Christmas Wish' has to be the best addition to the 'Cinderella Story' franchise since the original with Hilary Duff. That was always one of my favorite girlie movies and was followed up by three additional sequels, now four with Christmas Wish, none directly connected to the original. Yet, the theme was the same as 'Cinderella' in general. Girl loses father and is forced to live with evil stepmother and two spoiled stepsisters, beholden by something, usually an inheritance. 

Such is the case in Christmas Wish for Kat, just four months premature of her 18th birthday. If she can just make it there, she will get the money her dad left her, which her evil stepmom constantly reminds her. Until the time comes, Kat works as an elf as well as a singing telegram but still must hand over money to the family, though this is completely unnecessary. At work, she meets a handsome stranger who plays Santa and attempts to make it to the grand gala all while being blocked by her horrid step-family. Yet, her best friend, Isla will stop at nothing to ensure she gets the guy and happiness. 

The cast is spectacular as Laura Marano is adorably enchanting as Kat while Gregg Sulkin steals the show as the handsome but unassuming Dominic Wintergarden. The cast just works so well together in every scene, down to the handicapped dog and it is just a believable and charming holiday film. It is hopeful, sweet, happy, and perfect for all ages. I was thoroughly engaged the entire film so for that, I give it three gnomes out of four. You can own 'A CINDERELLA STORY: CHRISTMAS WISH' on Blu-Ray and DVD October 29 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.

'The Real L Word' Cast- Where Are They Now?

  photo courtesy of With the return of the hit Showtime series, 'The L Word,' it makes fans of the original show and ultimate reality spinoff, 'The Real L Word,' quite nostalgic. Actors can keep acting but reality stars can drift off into the clouds after their 15 minutes of fame are over. TRLW lasted three seasons with a revolving door of lesbians who soon became like friends and family. Initially based in California, the show followed the lives of a handful of gay women, somehow intertwined in life, and what it was like to date, fall in love, have sex, try to make babies, propose, be successful, and so much more. By the final season, the series went bi-coastal, utilizing NYC as a playground, as well. The show ended in 2012 with two weddings and a lot of tears. So, where are they now? Get ready to catch up with our fave reality celesbians! - Whitney Mixter : the player of the series, she may have hooked up with almost every member of the cast. But,

A 'Jerseylicious' Split!

  photo courtesy of When you were on a semi-successful reality show, especially as one of the key players, and everyone watched your love story unfold, it only makes sense they will want to keep following you after the series has ended. Such has been the case for 'Jerseylicious' star, Tracy DiMarco , who always went head-to-head with Olivia Blois-Sharpe on the show based around the never-ending drama at the Jersey salon, The Gatsby. Eventually, DiMarco got her happily ever after when she married Corey Epstein in her dream wedding. She continued to pursue her passion, have three kids, develop a wildly successful podcast, and work on clothing and accessories.  But, when you are in the public eye, boasting 541K followers on Instagram , almost everything you do is up for scrutiny. Fans (and haters) began to notice a lack of presence when it came to her husband, Corey and questioned if their marriage was okay. There is an abundance of photos of daughters, Skylar and
