I'm always so happy to be in NY, it's where I'm from and I always kind of feel like myself when I'm there. Love LA, but there's something about being in the place where you grew up. Especially, I think, for New Yorkers (yeah, Queens!). We've been staying at the Mercer hotel in NY for many years and we know everyone who works there, it's like coming home to family.
When Brad and I are apart for a week or so we always get kind of shy with each other when we're seeing each other again for the first time. Weird, right? I love Brad's mom, Debby, and his sister, Mandy, so much and was super happy that they were visiting the city, especially Debby who'd never been to NY. (Even though Debby had never met my parents, Brad and I have spent a lot of time with each other's families through the years. But, yes, strange they still hadn't met -- and stranger still it will happen next week on TV).
After Brad gets the news from Details that he got the job, I remember sitting there thinking, "Oh, god, he's not gonna cry is he?" And then he does start crying and I'm thinking, "Maybe I'll wait it out -- it might be a quick cry." But nope I soon realized this was going to be a longer one, the kind of cry that required me getting up from where I was sitting. I'm not a much of a crier myself, and I don't really know what's going to set Brad off a lot of the times, but I love how in touch with his emotions he is. We also spend a lot of time laughing about it. At least I do.
I absolutely love you and Brad! I have really enjoyed the season so far. I too have been mourning OLTL! I still have the last weeks episodes on my dvr! If you haven't you should really look into all the groups on Facebook as well as Silas Kain at delibernation trying to help save the genre as well as get OLTL back on the air.
I went to IMDB to see which episodes of "Will & Grace" you had written and they were some of my favorites. How talented you are! I must admit, my entire family has the propensity to quote our favorite movie and television lines and any given time. Our definition of an appropriate time would be "any time that it's funny". I have to say it's wonderful to put a face to the writer of some of our favorites. I sincerely pray, however, it was not your idea for the "Mom..Mommy...Mom...Mommy...Mommeeee....", that my teenagers have been torturing me with for, what, 10 years now? I am looking forward to seeing your family. Good luck with the show and a sincere thank you for all of the entertainment you have provided us over the years. Job well done.
I have to agree with you. I remember being in high school and watching Judith Light's scene on the witness stand when she confesses to being a prostitute. (For that scumbag pimp Marco). It gave me chills.
I look forward to next weeks episode. Boy you are putting it all on the line and with family support. I agree, America will miss the soap opera. I was an AMC fan and I so miss it. Real acting talent is being taken over by comic 3D animation.
I know you hear this over and over again, but Will and Grace was such a wonderfully well written show. During the holidays, I watched a few episodes and found myself laughing out loud all over again. I miss it! You are very talented and thanks for opening your private life with Brad to all of us! Of course, I would be interested in seeing how writers work! (not like 30 Rock!)
You two are so great together. Better than any straight couples I know with all their pathologies like Kim the gold digger, Phaedra dragging poor Apollo into the funeral business, poor lout. You two are the best. Refreshing. Better than Zoe dragging her husband through hell with all the underlying hostility even over who holds the baby. You could teach straight couples alot. Or maybe straight couples are a bad idea. I worry though that the fashion business for anyone is too much of a hard grind.
