Hi there! It’s me again with some pretty awesome news. I’m going back to LA this weekend to check out A Wrinkle in Time before it hits theaters on March 9th, and I’m taking you with me! Well, technically, not literally. You can follow along on my adventures as I interview the cast of A Wrinkle in Time and various cast members of new ABC shows like Alex, Inc., Splitting Up Together, Scandal, For the People, and Deception. We’ll be chatting online from February 24 – 27 and having a great time!
I’ve been in a room with Oprah Winfrey three different times, and this will be my fourth time seeing her in person. The first time I met her, she gave me a car. The second time I met her, she gave me financial advice, and the third time, I almost had my twins. The fourth time is going to be SUPER MAGICAL, right?! Right. I wonder how she feels walking into a room, and it goes silent with quiet admiration. Or all out shrieks. Dealers choice. I just know I’m going to be doing one of them.
We’ll be attending the world premiere of A Wrinkle in Time and interviewing the cast and director and screenwriter. It’s so full of girl power that I can’t help but be excited!

But wait, there’s more!
For The People – series premiere Tuesday, March 13 at 10|9c
Set in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (a.k.a. “The Mother Court”), the new Shondaland series show follows six talented young lawyers working on opposite sides of the law and handling the most high-profile and high-stakes federal cases in the country.
Best friends Sandra Bell (Britt Robertson) and Allison Adams (Jasmin Savoy Brown) serve as public defenders alongside Jay Simmons (Wesam Keesh) and their boss, Federal Public Defender Jill Carlan (Hope Davis). They face off against prosecutors Seth Oliver (Ben Rappaport), Leonard Knox (Regé-Jean Page), Kate Littlejohn (Susannah Flood) and their supervisor, chief of the Criminal Division in the U.S. Attorney’s Office, Roger Gunn (Ben Shenkman). Our lawyers are joined by Judge Nicholas Byrne (Vondie Curtis-Hall), who rules on some of the court’s most controversial cases, and Tina Krissman (Anna Deavere Smith), the formidable clerk of Court who keeps everyone in line.
These young lawyers will be put to the test both personally and professionally as their lives intersect in and out of America’s most prestigious trial court.
