Families like mine are the new reality in America. While pundits and politicians have used "family values" as an artificial dividing line in our nation, the kind of family they imagine is obsolete.
My Grandma Elizabeth lived to be 104 years old. In her lifetime, she witnessed World Wars I and II, The Great Depression, the Holocaust, the Vietnam War, the crumbling of the Berlin Wall, September 11th and a few other events. Without an iPhone, undergoing Botox, owning a flat-screen TV, or joining Cross Fit, she was the strongest woman I have ever known.
The biggest silver lining to the downfall of summer is the knowledge that fall TV is finally on the horizon, bringing some trusty old friends back into our lives once again. But the summer has been long and hot and has left us a little foggy on what went down during spring finales oh-so-long ago.
Would we be having this discussion if Hugh Jackman had been displayed shirtless on that rotating pedestal? I think not. This was tongue and cheek, people. A parody. A lark. And a creative way to present a boring part of the show. Geesh!
Why should we pay cable companies big monthly fees for a huge lineup of programs we never watch but are charged for. Research shows that folks with 300 channels only watch an average of 12 of them. Why not pick and choose just what we want to watch and pay for each show as we go? Or, as the industry calls it: pay-per-view.
In the wake of the 66th Annual Emmy Awards, Redfin decided to take a look at some of the homes of the biggest winners of the night. Read on to get a closer look at how these stars live when you're not watching them on screen.
It's actually kind of fun to see modern day portrayals of parenting, because the style is so vastly different than in generations past.
I know our relationship hasn't been easy. Starting from conception, I know the choice you have made to come into this physical world was a huge challenge to say, YES, I will come down. From conception, I know your life hasn't been a "bowl of cherries."
Despite the Iranian government's strict ban on the consumption of Western music, film, television and culture, the Iranian public's thirst for such forms of art and entertainment is unrelenting, and sometimes, the government gives in.
Look for True Detective, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Orange Is the New Black to be among the new TV series breaking into the Emmy derby in a big way when nominations are announced on Thursday morning.
The nominations for the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards are announced July 10 and like a kid writing his Christmas list for Santa Claus, I have been thinking about who I most wish to see receive an Emmy nomination come Thursday morning.
Most commitments in life come with an escape clause. You can join a group and later decide to leave. You can accept a job and then quit. Deep friendships can slowly fade -- even marriages. But to be asked by someone to participate in the act of creating a child... this was truly sacred.
Art, in its best form, allows you to experience life and ultimately changes the way you view the world. Will & Grace was one of those rare television shows to do just that. It was entertaining, but it did more than just amuse its viewers.
If you're an emerging producer (who perhaps also writes, directs, acts, etc.) who lacks not in passion but sometimes in direction and focus, Produced By Conference should be a "Hell Yeah!" for you each June.
Let's face it: Even as we battle the myths surrounding race, gender, gender roles, sexuality, class, domesticity and the nuclear family, we haven't adequately addressed the myths or stigma around non-biological family structures.
