Disney’s Nutcracker and The Four Realms
Monday afternoon I will get dressed up in my red carpet attire for the Disney’s Nutcracker premiere and head off to interview some of the talents from the movie.
Misty Copeland – The Ballerina in Disney’s Nutcracker
My first interview will be with Misty Copeland. Besides being an amazing world known dancer, she’s playing the beautiful role of The Ballerina in Disney’s The Nutcracker. and the Four Realms. I have enjoyed watching her as a guest judge on World of Dance in the last two seasons and love how kind and helpful she is with the contestants. I cannot wait to hear her thoughts on playing a role in this film.

Mackenzie Foy – Clara in Disney’s Nutcracker
My second interview is with Mackenzie Foy. For those of you that followed my coverage of the black carpet premiere for The Twilight Saga’s Breaking Dawn Part 2, then you know her as Renesmee – the half human half vampire child. Well now, she is all grown and going from a supernatural role to one of fantasy. Can you believe the actress that played little Renesmee is turning 18 years old this November?

On Tuesday, the ABC TV fun begins. I will be getting behind the scenes looks at two of the top shows on ABC right now.
The Kids Are Alright
“The Kids Are Alright” airs Tuesdays at 8:30|7:30c on ABC. You can also watch/rewatch via streaming (ABC app/ABC.com/Hulu) or On Demand.
Set in the 1970s, this ensemble comedy follows a traditional Irish-Catholic family, the Clearys, as they navigate big and small changes during one of America’s most turbulent decades. In a working-class neighborhood outside Los Angeles, Mike and Peggy raise eight boisterous boys who live out their days with little supervision. The household is turned upside down when oldest son Lawrence returns home and announces he’s quitting the seminary to go off and “save the world.” Times are changing and this family will never be the same. There are 10 people, three bedrooms, one bathroom and everyone in it for themselves.
“Station 19” airs Thursdays at 9|8c on ABC (also available via streaming on ABC app/ABC.com/Hulu and on demand) follows a group of heroic Seattle firefighters as they put their lives and hearts on the line. The latest series from the executive producers of “Grey’s Anatomy,” “Scandal” and “How to Get Away with Murder” takes us inside the tough, tight-knit and sometimes heartbreaking world of the city’s bravest first responders.
Season 2 of “Station 19” will return with answers to all of our burning questions. With a massive skyscraper fire raging, can Andy (Jaina Lee Ortiz) lead her team to safety?
Will her former flame Jack (Grey Damon) and teammate Travis (Jay Hayden) survive after an explosion sends them both into jeopardy? And when the dust finally settles, who will win the race for the captain position at Station 19?
The second season finds our team wrestling with the fallout of the deadly blaze. The life of their former captain, Pruitt (Miguel Sandoval), hangs in the balance after major health complications. No longer a rookie, Ben (Jason George) searches for his place on the team. Maya (Danielle Savre), Vic (Barrett Doss), and Dean (Okieriete Onaodowan) are tested beyond their limits. And if all that wasn’t enough for Andy, her complicated relationship with police officer Ryan (Alberto Frezza) grows even more complex as his path intersects with the station’s.
