Late to the Nashville party

Do you watch the TV show Nashville?

Via IMDB

I tuned in part way through season 2 and although it was clear I had missed a lot of characters’ backstory, I liked Nashville a lot.

On a recent flight, I had the chance to go back to the start of the show thanks to in-flight DIRECTV. I plowed through four or five episodes beginning with the pilot. I was hooked!

But getting caught up was hard. No Hulu, no Netflix and ABC.com only offers a few episodes free. My options for seeing the episodes were Amazon (not included in Prime) or through Verizon FioS for $1.99 per episode (SD; HD is $2.99 and I’m too cheap for that).

Given that ratings for Nashville have not been spectacular, one would think that ABC could throw would-be fans a bone. But no.

Anyway. I am caught up now and looking forward to more Juliette bitchface. Continue reading

Warning: It’s Juan-uary

The Bachelor returns tonight. And said Bachelor is Juan Pablo Galavis. This guy:

Sexy right? Desiree didn’t get him. Or maybe it was that she couldn’t say his name and thus didn’t see a lasting romance as possible with him.

Twitter Spotlight: Ashley Spivey

I have wanted to feature Ashley Spivey here for a long time.

It was Ashley’s appearance on Brad’s second season as The Bachelor that introduced the world to her Southern accent and quick wit. Her tweets keep us laughing (except when they’re about books in which case they’re super useful in building a Good Reads list) and her Instagrams give us little peeks into her life in NYC and travels beyond.

I have a new chiropractor

That’s exciting, right?

Fortunately he has not put anything up my nose like Chris’ dad on The Bachelorette.

My experience with chiropractic care has been nothing but good. During my dancing years, I went more regularly.

Now I just hope to keep my back and neck feeling good. Maintenance for aches and pains that come from sitting at a desk most days, business travel and the like.

No endonasal cranial adjustments for me though, please.

Twitter Spotlight: Jenna Burke

Further proof that Ashley Spivey is The Missing Link: Jenna Burke aka @TheOverAnalyst is yet another gal I met during one of Ashley’s viewing parties.

Jenna made a big impression on her season of The Bachelor: she cried quite a lot.

I’m almost certain I’d have done the same.

But Jenna bounced back. When I met her, she impressed me with her ability to laugh at herself. Jenna is sweet, witty and good-natured.

In her post-Bachelor life, Jenna lives in Brooklyn and is hard at work on the relaunch of her blog The Over-Analyst, coming in early August.

Twitter Spotlight: Karina Smirnoff

Sometimes you watch someone on TV or in a movie and you think you know them. But in the case of Dancing with the Stars’ Karina Smirnoff, you’d be wrong.

Yes, Karina is beautiful, and talented, and competitive. But until you meet her, you have no idea how bubbly and fun-loving she is. Getting to know her has been such a treat.

Recently Forever Tango announced that Karina and fellow DWTS pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be starring on Broadway for three weeks starting July 9. I’ll be in the audience at least once.

Extended through August 11. Buy tickets here.

K, welcome to NYC!

Twitter Spotlight: Robert Mills

In honor of the premiere of Desiree Hartsock’s turn as The Bachelorette, I am breaking all of the Twitter Spotlight rules and posting on a Monday.

I have a great subject this time too: ABC bigwig Robert Mills agreed to answer my probing questions. On Twitter, he’s better known as @Millsy11374 and yes, that’s a pic of Millsy riding the same elephant .

Twitter Spotlight: Ashley Elgin

It’s coming: The return of Bachelorette on ABC. Desiree‘s season premieres as on May 27.

Some of you love it, some of you don’t so I’m sorry in advance. There will be a lot of Bachelorette tweeting and posting during these next few weeks.

In anticipation of the new season, I wanted to feature college student Ashley Elgin aka @BachelorExpert in the Twitter Spotlight.
