—Motherhood moves to TV. I’m so excited ABC bought 13 episodes of In the Motherhood, the hilarious web series based on real mom stories. The TV version will star Chelsea Handler, Megan Mullally, and Cheryl Hines. I wonder why not Jenny McCarthy and Leah Remini, who were a part of the original cast? Hopefully the TV version won’t disappoint!
— The Women premieres this weekend. This remake of the classic 1939 film is a fast-paced, witty and emotional look at all things female, including loyalties, betrayals, careers, families and most of all, friendships. The Women features an all-female cast of distinguished actresses, including Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Messing, Jada Pinkett Smith, Cloris Leachman, Bette Midler and Candice Bergen. You can watch the trailer and see a mini-documentary about the female crew behind The Women on Dove.com. Then grab a girlfriend and go see this film!
— Send personalized cute cards, stat! If you’re like me, you always mean to send cards to friends and family for various occasions. But you never seem to actually do it–no time to shop the card aisles, write out the card, address and stamp it, and get it in the mail. (And yes, e-cards are great–but they’re not quite the same as a real, actual card received via snail mail.) Hallmark to the rescue! You can go on their website, pick out the perfect card, personalize it with your own message, and they’ll print and mail it for you. The cost? Card plus stamp, usually less than $4.
