"American actress buys a 200 year old Italian home for €1. Now what could go wrong? Okay. What the hell is this? Sorry. Sorry. What happened? O would you do? My God, I just knock down a wall. I need a manicure. I'm an actress and a long way to go. Well, ah lot. As you heard there can go wrong as Lorraine Bracco could tell you Broncos, most known for her roles in The Sopranos and Goodfellas. And that €1 home in Sicily. Renovating it cost her many more euros. It's a journey she takes us on in her new HD TV show, my big Italian adventure and she joins us now. Welcome. Hi, Lulu. How you I am doing OK, what made me feel a lot better was actually seeing you do this? Because when this story came out a few years ago, I saw it and I daydreamed about taking advantage of it, You know, picturesque Italian town, giving A house is to revitalize the area because it's you. They're leaving, but you actually went through with it, and that's crazy. Yes, like my Children said to me when I told them that I wanted to do this. They said, Well, it's not crazier than anything else you've ever wanted to do. Mom. Why did you want to You know, I don't know. I really can't even answer that. But I saw the pop up on my phone. I read it And then I started to search. I did the Google map. I did the Google about the town about Sicily. I must admit that I'm a big age HGTV fan. So I think the next morning when I woke up I said, Oh, my God, This is a great idea for HDTV. Little did I know that there were 16 houses and there were 100,000 emails of people all over the world for these homes? Yeah, I might have been one of them. I'm not confessing to anything. Okay, Good. Well, you could come visit. How's that? Because I did all the hard work. Let me tell you You did first. I want to talk about this town. Sambuca. What did you know about about this part of Sicily? Listen, thank God Sambuca to Sicily. Is that where you make Sambuca? Otherwise I would have never have made it back. This's your first time in Sicily. Thes air. You know your roots. Your paternal grand parents were born in Sicily, right? I mean, what did they make of this famous American actress? Sort of rocking up and there's All town. There's about 5000 people in the town. So since they you know, didn't really know me. They were very welcoming. And it was just so sweet when I would wait at the cheese shop or go to the grocery store or the hardware store. They would be like, Oh, yeah. You bought that €1 house. That's how they know you s Oh, you buy this €1 house, And there's this extraordinary scene at the beginning where you're taken around by the mayor, of course, to see the different houses that are available and there, Rex Yeah, In my opinion, they ALS nobody in their right minds would have thought there's you have a particular approach to the design of the house. You were very adamant about keeping a lot of the original elements like the tile. I mean, where do you get that? I mean, you're an HDTV addict, but I mean, Where do you get your sense of design and style and this idea of wanting to just renovate something completely. Every time I've had a home and I've had many homes in my life, everyone who's ever walked in and said Oh, it's so homey here. It's so warm. It's a house I'd like to live in. And I always found that you know, is a huge compliment. So when I looked at the three houses and they saw this house, a couple of things hit me that I really loved one. It was on a corner, so you had a lot of light and I I think that's very important When you buy a home is that You have the bones that are interesting. The second part is is yes. When I went in, I saw these beautiful tiled floors under three inches of dust and dirt, And I was like, Oh, this. This is beautiful. Um, and by the way, The people who built this house. God bless them. They were incredible artists. They did everything by hand. There was no sheet rough. They did everything with plaster. It's plastered. You know the walls 12345 times They put all these rocks you know, to build up the second floor. It's amazing. So I'm curious. Has this journey changed your identity being Italian? I mean, has it made you connect? More directly to your heritage. Not yet because I haven't been like I can't wait to go there and spend 23 months in the house living in Sambuca and I've not been able to do that because of Cove it. Do you think that people should be doing this going off to another country, getting getting a house and renovating it Tall for bottom? I mean, I guess it's never too late for an adventure. No, Never too late. Never say never is another one of my things Which my kids and really know about May and I say it to them. Dream big. You never know. Don't cut yourself out.

That's a starting bid, but there's a catch. The town's mayor says buyers must pay a deposit. €3000 is a guarantee that they will renovate the property within three years. This is happening all over southern Italy. They're Lorraine Bracco, Ina, Lorraine Bracco, Blade, Karen and Goodfellas. She is doing a show for HDTV or one of them. Or she is going back to her her roots and she bought a home for a hero and she's fixing it up. But Sambuca is another town believe that census Leah's well that is selling homes for a dollar.

The Washington Post is furious about an executive order President Trump just signed it creates a new schedule for federal workers. Sounds like no big deal, but that would be wrong. The Post editorial board says. This is one of President Trump's most insidious executive orders. They call it an assault on the civil service. Here's why they're losing their minds. Trump's new executive order gives him more flexibility to control the huge civil service bureaucracy. Until now, career employees were so firmly embedded into the bureaucracy that they've been almost impossible to get rid of. And a lot of these bureaucrats are members of the deep state or the shadow government. Now, The Washington Post calls these bird and bureaucrats the federal government's greatest strength, which is a laugh. The editor's worry that tens of thousands of workers, including managers, lawyers, economists and even scientists, scientists, Yeah, confined their jobs on the chopping block if they're rated Poor performers. Washingtonpost liberals firing poor performers is in city is it's an assault on precious civil service bureaucrats. But to most Americans who don't have that kind of artificial job protection, this isn't an assault and it isn't insidious is just the way business operates on merit. Getting rid of these government parasites is yet another trump promise kept. This is what draining the swamp looks like. Folks learn it love it. Living rushes right.

"Somewhere way 8 42 on your Russia Shauna Morning. What's good fellows and watching shows? Nothing was riding me on your post Yesterday we read it every day. And in the middle of paper, they had this Lord large, you know, Pullout section and they were talking about this being the 30 year anniversary of Goodfellas. And I told you the story about good looking van and Emory, The Apollo in the U. And who knew that 30 years later it would become what it has become, which is you know, you can argue all day Godfather. Goodfellas doesn't matter. They were both amazing and different eras. And it's turned out to be an unbelievable classic and one of the great roles in that movie was Lorraine Broncos Roll Karen Henry Hill's wife. She was brilliant. And then of course, you're not to become Dr Melfi on The Sopranos. She was brilliant there, too. And I see the rain quite a bit. I used to at least before Colvin. What events All over the city.

An Oscar nominated actress has been 30 years and well, and you've had much success in the intervening years. But ah, so how do you feel? I mean, you stay in touch with the guys are, you know from good for Henry. What's his name? Ray Liotta. Excuse me any of these guys? You know, I like you guys. I see you out and about and I see Ray out about Robert out and about and Debbie Maze are out and about, um and I stay close to my soprano cast. I really have it. Ah, it's I think very unusual, but we have stayed very close. And I think maybe because of you know the passing of Jimmy that we kind of Keep in touch. We call How you doing? What's up way? Where you at? I heard you got a job. Um, you know that kind of stuff, But I'm going to tell you something cute and I don't know why it just hit me because you talked about Godfather and Goodfellas and and we could debate you know, for the rest of our lives about About those two movies. I Francis Ford Coppola asked me to come in and meet him. And this is a couple of years ago and I was very excited to meet Francis. I was This was to may of Ah, a great director. He'll go down in history. And as I walked any stood up, and he said, You're like family. Wow. Just why do you say that? But, you know, I guess you know, being an Italian Americans, Whatever. But the way he stood up and greeted me. It was like a family. Could have been you instead of tell you, sire. Who knows? I think he was going to take it there over May. I think so. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, but that's a beautiful thing. But I loved that that you know, That's how he greeted me. I was I'm sure I was smiling ear to ear like an idiot. The rain Brocco 30 years of the good, But it's not. But he had one big family, Godfather, Goodfellas, all the all the great ones, and I did read some stories. Yesterday, Mazar was a friend of yours, and I guess when she threw the Coke scale during that scene with Ray Liotta, she nearly took off Martin Scorsese's ear. And also we know that Scorsese's mom was in the movie she gave Joe Pesci the knife, the car for Billy Batts and the dad called Robert DeNiro to Tom that that Pesci was dead. But your kids were in the movie when you look back now, how great was that? Great. Well, you know, it was a really hard shoot. We worked, You know, 15 hours a day We were on location everywhere. All of the New York, Brooklyn, Queens, Manhattan. I mean, we never stayed one place almost. You know, for a very, very long time. It was all over the place. Um and I worked like a dog and I did not get misty. My kids I would come home. I would literally make sure I took a shower. Make sure I knew my lines for the next day, and then I would literally just dropped into the bed. I would leave very early in the morning. And when Marty was testing the kids, they said, could you get my kids? So I've been seeing them so I was pretty good. Pretty good looking, you know. Ah, Lorraine Bracco from Goodfellas does celebrating the 30th anniversary of the making of Goodfellas. Is one question that it's out there about good fellas all the time. When ah, when Robert DeNiro he tries to get you to towards the end of the movie to come in and take a look at some stolen product and us is And you all of a sudden you're You're afraid you're in the way. Was he really intending? Teo? You know, do you harm or was he was just going to show you the dress is what do you think? What is your interpretation of that scene? I think he was ready to bump me off because that's what I like to think about it Without me in the picture. He would have less less problem, right? You know what, but I thought it was great. What you said in the post till when that is We have a habit. The great Lorraine Bracco off glorifying some of these mob characters I've done in my whole life. I love these guys. And you said, Listen, the real life. Karen Hill wasn't so much fun, you know, Think about what her husband was going through What she went through one when he was arrested. And then, of course, witness protection. I mean, the idea of glorifying when you think about Karen Ho's life, and you portrayed it brilliantly, Lorraine. It really wasn't it wasn't the glamorous look like right? No, I mean, you know. Yeah, I think that when they had to go when, when? No. What was McDonald? The FBI agent wanted Henry to go into the witness protection plan. And Henry said, Well, I want my wife and kids, which we understand. But I mean the sacrifice that she made To do that..

Truth vs Hollywood

"Welcome to truth versus Hollywood I'm David, Chen and A. Truth versus Hollywood is look at films that are based on a true story, but we don't just talk about the film. We also talk about that true story. On this podcast will touch on what really happened. How that differs from the film and why and we're not just talking, heads will hear about the true story through interviews from experts, witnesses and people who were involved in it. It's both the real facts and the real facts are l. fix. What do you think that Joanna I loved it today Ridge? Today! We're talking about Martin. Scorsese's classic film Goodfellas Goodfellas is based on the book Wiseguy. Nicholas Pathology which, in turn is based on life of Mobster Henry Hill Hill was actually alive when the film came out and was very pleased with his film based on him, and as we'll talk about later, it definitely had an effect on his life. Pathology worked with Scorsese to write the screenplay and the film was. was a complete. It nominated for six Academy Awards and won one Joe Pesci for supporting actor. It's considered one of the best gangster movies of all times. If I put it on their list of one hundred years, one hundred movies and the Library of Congress decided that it was culturally important and added it to its preservation archives all right well. Let's get to the movie itself. It stars Ray Liotta. Hill Robert Deniro as Jimmy, the Gent Conway, who's based on Jimmy the Gent? Burke Joe Pesci as Tommy devito based on Tommy desimone Paul Sorvino Paul cicero based on Paul Vario and Lorraine Bracco as Henry's wife Karen Hill. Many real life figures at this movie was based off of an apparently Henry Hill ended up getting paid five hundred eighty thousand dollars because of the use of historian, this movie, which is a lot of money to pay to a mobster who has done very horrible things you know in watching this movie again. John Robinson one of the things that. I kind of realized you know or reflected on is the fact that we've been lost you decades seen so many movies about bad men, doing bad things, and that this movie kind of one of the prototypical examples of how they can be glorified an elevated in this. Movie makes that lifestyle look really glamorous while at the same time depicting some of the negative consequence lifestyle, but at the same time it does rubbed me the wrong way that like the people who are involved often are rewarded. We also saw this Martin. Scorsese's Will Wall Street as well. Similar dynamic, there so I'm kind of curious like as you're reflecting on your overall experience of watching the movie, and now that we know little bit more about what happened with the real life characters, and we're GONNA. Talk about it during the courses podcast like. How did it strike you that? This is based off of Real Person I. Think Scar says he couldn't have picked a better release. Go subject to to glum onto here than Henry Hill because though he is gangster and he's fully involved in this gangster life, he is a the likability of this character, which is really what's Cortesi was going for I've seen interviews. We talked about the nineteen thirty two scarface, which was the first time he ever saw. Gangsters depicted as really likable. When you Henry Hill. And he does terrible things, but he's a gangster who is a little squeamish. We see this the film and it's corroborated by true story of his life. He was violent crimes, but he wasn't a a mass murderer and You know the the charisma of him. I think is really important. He wasn't one of the most vicious people in this story. And so I think you're making good point that like. If you're GONNA choose an entry way into this world. Henry Hill is probably the ideal candidate in this case so. Well, the film opens with three men driving in a car, having a seemingly normal evening. It's then revealed that there is a captive in the trunk and than shortly after him, we mmediately get Henry's voiceover with the iconic line as far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a gangster. It's one of the most. Openings and Awesome History Joanna Robinson after nearly three decades. How effective did you find this opening? Well, it's funny. I did not see I was eight years old when fellows came out, or maybe nine so I did not see it in theaters and I didn't see it until later in life and but by then it already seats into the culture because it was so iconic. You know there's. Maniacs good feathers, pigeon parody, and like all sorts of stuff, so I'm going to wear of the beats of it, even though the first exposure to goodfellas was. Is what you're saying. Thousand percent absolutely. But you know so by the time I had seen it. I had also seen so many things that had imitated it, and this is true of like so many of our great films like by the time you get around to watching it. Maybe you seen a bunch of people. Knock it off and so you're like well. How groundbreaking? Is this

"This is Kathy. We'll come back to another episode of culturing where we talk about. We were talking about pop pop culture tech about movies and TV shows. That's what I meant. Wow all over the place here there we go. We'll technical glitch. She just wanted to hear a little bit more from from. Henry is going to be a good summer. There's even a montage of Henry laughing on Youtube. Well that's like something I wanted to talk about with this movie Or as Tommy calls them Henry Henry. Henry is to meet you Henry the way that Ray Liotta and the way. Hey that Robert Deniro laugh in. This movie is like so meam ready. Like what's the what's it's so over the top. I think it's infectious. Che's though to cracks me up. We laughed every time. So this movie is Goodfellas so what is your history with. Could you remember when you first saw. Remember who. You're with breath no I. I saw it in the theater and I don't know I don't think I did. I think I saw it on. DVD or a or a tape. My Dad took me to it. So how old you. Let's see nine thousand nine hundred ninety so it was eighteen. You're eighteen no I did not see it at eighteen. I don't think so it kind of I kinda you think of Goodfellas. As being one of those gen-x movies that we all saw it became common uh-huh quotes from the movie or just understanding what happened in the movie was part of being our age. Budget was twenty five million which seems light. Yeah does for today's Day and it grows forty six million which seems light also like this. What was that for the year? Like you mean. Where did it plays compared to other movies? I guess that's relative to me like what was that good for that year. I have no idea just seems like you know lake. Whatever all these big hits now make hundreds of millions of dollars in affected? This made a measly forty six to seems you know. It's regarded as one of the. I think the better movies ever made. This gets into a very interesting discussion. I don't WanNa get too far off a good fellows but you know that Martin Scorsese is like in the middle of of we would call a cultural conversation regarding whether or not marvel movies are real movie. Coppola weigh in on the t shirt. Did so two things happened number. One Scorsese was doing it. Do you say Scorsese or do you. Say Scorsese Scorsese okay. So Scorsese was doing an interview. He had a brief comment about about. He didn't think marvel movies were true. Cinema it was this whole long article but that was the only thing that went viral so then he went back and did a Washington Post opinion piece to explain. Explain what I meant and I read it and basically he was just saying that it doesn't have to him. Cinema is going into a place where you don't know what's going to happen you don't know what the outcome's going to be. You're going to be surprised. There's an element of taps into the humanity of people. The darkness all that kind and if stuff and marvel you know relatively speaking I mean when you're directing these actors type Tom. No I think the the cinematic experience experience. Like if you're going into a marble fluidity to what might curl asshole and he used a lot of examples like hitchcock movies. The reason people into hitchcock movies is because you didn't know where you're going. You had no idea where you're going to be left and it's much more. It's a long article so I I just couldn't and do it justice but there are a lot of people that you know it was obviously up on twitter and a lot of people reposted a Lotta actors and actresses directors and said. Yes this now. I don't really. We have a comment on whether or not I think what I'm commenting on is the fact that what you're talking about is how much money a movie make whereas there was a time that every What they're not called producers? They're the ones who put out the movies. What what is that called the the company that you go to that like markets the movie for You Kind of like the twenty first century others. All that promoter. Whatever they're called that they would always do movies like goodfellas? They would always have a movie like life of Pi. They would always have a movie like something that it wasn't like a big shoot 'em up fast and furious kind of movie. They had just regular movies and that as we know is no longer really happening in the movie theater and I blame ourselves of course going to see them and television has come back in vogue where you can do that. In Scorsese even says in his Washington Post opinion piece. I'm now part of it because the Irishman which is coming out this year I think in December is going to Air or not air. It is going to be on the big screen for a couple of weeks and then it's on Netflix. Netflix is the one who gave him money. so He's like now. I'm in a two but let's not pretend hand. Are we going to go. See the Irishman yes theater. It's these three guys that we love well Pacino's not in goodfellas bio he's not. I heard that he got offered one of the roles. I don't know his job conway or something but anyway so these are the Academy award nominees that this pitcher got best pitcher director best film editing best adapted screenplay best best supporting actor Joe Pesci. I'm best supporting actress. Lorraine bracco which of those do think Deniro didn't win I know who won. She won and yes. That's right. She did win he Dan I was going to play. I don't know if I could find. I was gonNA plays acceptance speeches just kind of funny. Maybe I'll try to find it. And here's what came out for the best movie. Wolves Awakenings Ghost Godfather part three and Goodfellas. Same again dances with wolves. Dances with wolves awakenings Ghost Ghost Godfather part three and Goodfellas. I'm shocked Godfather. Part three in there Dances with wolves one. Correct and Kevin. Costner won best director. This he did so oh goodfellas did not win. That choice dances with wolves a hundred thousand percent. That's one of my favorites. A lot of percents we well. All those movies were a good godfather three. I'm not sure about but the GOODFELLAS is awakenings. Also had deniro in it and I liked stat. People I've heard people kind of that movie now in hindsight but I liked it at the time Robin Williams already here. Gop She's acceptance behavior..

Sean, Sean, John Hello, Sean Connery and who's the woman that's always in the Italian movies. The gangster movies, Laura. I'll think of it while you're you keep going with this.

Some some resin that came out of the back of an ant for for for a form of cancer that avenue this. Yeah. Okay. I remember who the lady was. But that was a great move Lorraine Bracco. Oh, that's it.

And it was a huge difference in the results between the two. But the important thing is there are certain fighter nutrients in Nigeria black seed oil that have a very calming effect in the Bronx of the lungs, but it has a great effect in other areas of the body, which is why we offer something called metabolic.

"Bill after all the time. I've known him shocked. He wasn't appear eighty six episode around it, probably probably chap maybe four percentage is by being like, you know, not really in the mood for another weird. Dr Melfi seen that character didn't work for me thirteen years thirteen twenty years ago. And I don't know you're you're hire undocumented though. And I hire this time that I was back in the day. I used to think that you Lorraine Bracco was kind of the weak link of the major CAF members. 'cause she she would seem stiff a lot of the time. And when I went back and watched it again for the book, it seem more like, no that's deliberate. Like, she's uncomfortable being around this guy a lot and there are moments when she's not and she she's really great in those. I guess the biggest flaw of this show. And if you know the mount Rushmore for me, which has five shows on it of that. Plus. The the the flaw for this show is is the supporting actors some of the acting is just not good is not it's there's some really kind of subpar actors. So when somebody like Bush EMMY or Joe Pantoliano Pendolino or Frank Vincent guys like that come in that are like real actors who really know what the fuck they're doing it stands out. And maybe he intended it to be that way. But I look at somebody like Bobby Bokola who actually got better by the last season was actually pretty good. But those first couple seasons, he's bad. And there's there's over and over again, there's people in these parts that are actually like half important parts in there. Just not actors. Definitely people who you know, had to veer out of their lane more than they should have just because other other characters got killed off. And they got promoted, you know, further up on the bench, and then they probably should have, you know, an even even somebody like Steven van works almost entirely just as comic relief. And if you try to do more with him, it's problematic, but then you have seen him with Adriaan. And it's terrifying. So. Yeah. It was an amazing experience to rewatch it. It's I think it's available. It's on HBO now. Visit but I think it's also on on Amazon prime. And now, I'm thinking about the next binge-watch? There's been rumors of of the Simmons family may be planning through madman. Just rumors right now. With Bill with there's been whispers that we might be plowing through those. And I just got it aside. It's a little it's kind of a little I I'd be interested to see how many night you could watch a madman. Feels like to be the max. What do you think? Well, I mean man Mets pulpy than sopranos sopranos. There's always some kind of what's going to happen next, and whose gonna get killed element to it that can pull you along. Even though the episode, I think are really dense, and sort of Laden with meaning in the same way that madman is, you know, you you certainly go back and rewatch breaking bad faster than I expect. You what madman breaking bad? That was only like five six years ago. I just did that I the wire as well. Because. In the power rankings right now, the wire was one heading into the sopranos bench. But now it now I think sopranos might be back to the one spot again for me. I think. I think I think it's sopranos the wire. Breaking bad. Madman. And then thrones fifth for the five for the five show. Mount rushmore. That's that's how I'd go right now. What would you do for your five? It would be sopranos wire. Breaking bad mad men deadwood as my. Would you bump out game of thrones? Easily. I mean, I'd like game of thrones a lot. But I don't think it's in the class of any of those. I'm torn on it because the best game of thrones episodes like the P peak game of thrones is just some of the greatest TV I've ever seen in my life. Like, what was the episode when when tear when teary and takes over the battle from Jaffrey that fucking loser..

He was very very helpful to me. Nice and patient, and you know, sometimes you work, but an actor the guys nasty, you know, your your green banana, and the guy knows, you know, showing his weight, and you know, that could be a bad thing, you know, dominant. Couldn't have been nicer to me, you know. So and Jim I, you know, I remember my first episode. We were shooting a scene out in in Newark. It was genius house before they built it on the stage. And we rehearsed and then it was me, Jim and Dominic. And and I remember just it was kind of like it all of this. I step back out of body thing. And I went, you know, Jim shit. Let's go to my trailer and run the line. So we were studying running the lines in the trail. And I went. How did I get here? I just was watching these guys on TV. I didn't know either one of them. 'cause whatever work I did up until that point was in California or Las Vegas. You know? And I didn't know anybody from the cash, and I was like, wow, you know, and and it couldn't be nicer jam and all the guys and even after I did my first scene, and it was with Jim and and Stevie aunt and Finney pesto Tony's Rico as soon as I finish the scene.

"This is fresh air. Let's get back to Terry's 2014 interview with eighty Falco. She co-starred is Carmelo soprano. The wife of Tony soprano in HBO's the sopranos which premiered twenty years ago this week. You know, what I was wondering one of the defining trait of Carmella, Tony soprano's wife is that she's in such denial. I mean, she knows what you wants to know when she needs to know it, and when she doesn't need to know one wants to deny it, she doesn't know it. So she really knows that Tony is you know, the head of the mob in his part of jersey. But she doesn't know the specific details of like who he's beaten up or who he's ordered killed or who he's extorting. She gets the gist of it. But you know, she acts very innocent about it unless he wants to intimidate somebody in in that case, I car has been Tony soprano. Do you know who he is? Right. But anyways, I was wondering if you almost protected yourself from watching some episodes show that you wouldn't know wouldn't know about the actual acts of brutality was responsible for or you know, the the the the person himself who was doing the killing or the right? I never thought of that. That's actually highly possible. I was aware more about I didn't want to see him with other women really a part that I found harder to that easy harder to see. There was no way. I couldn't let it get into my system in a way that would bother me he gets very complicated. This stuff, you know, this whole acting stuff and not just it's not just a play or or or movie this went on for ten years. So there is this alter ego thing about. What actually goes on that the character slash me that that I don't know about so. Yeah, I think on some level myself from the other women, I didn't watch it so much, but I had less of a hard time about the people who was killing which I'm sure is more for me and my shrink to talk about. We'll get to that. Either. Carmella might have been that way. Yeah. Yeah. Well, you can you can watch any of it because Tony was with a woman on just about every episode. Hey, I still haven't watched them. So don't tell me. You're in you're in for some heartbreaking, whatever ten years later still in denial you characters just a fight a lot. And I thought I'd play an example of one of the fights. And this is a session your first session with Tony's therapist, Dr Melfi who's played by Lorraine Bracco. And you're there with Tony to talk about his anxiety attacks. Of course, it ends up in a big fight. So here's the scene. Anthony's attacks. How did they make you feel? Well, concerned, of course. Helpless. Little frustrated, maybe with your inability to help him to tell the truth. I was referring to your ability to help him. She has helped me what are you talking about even coming here for three years? Tony you still pass out on a regular basis. I understand your frustration today. Anthony share with you any of our insights about his last panic attack. I told you remember. The gobble and my mother when I was a little kid, right? Yes. Do you think that there's anything in the present family dynamic that could serve as a trigger something in your dialoguing perhaps excuse me? I don't really know you that. Well, we're trying to get to root causes like, maybe you do things you know, that have some affect on me. Oh, really? What people affect each other in life. Oh, I get it is this how it works. You can't get any answers out of him. So you start looking for someone else to point the finger. She's not saying anything. Well, you didn't show defensive you know, what Tony maybe you should explore your own behavior. Maybe you pass out because you're guilty over something. Maybe the fact that you stick your anything with a pulse you ever thought exploring that root cause every nice that's very nice. I told you much ago, I broke it off with that Russian potion, right? It's incredible. It's like people who smoke the whole life. And then they sue the cigarette companies when they get cancer. You know, you agreed to come here. Oh, forget it. This is ridiculous. Right sit there. Silence. Anger. Pass out, and you blame the rest of the world. Yeah. I love you too. It's a scene from the sopranos. Falco and with James Gandolfini Lorraine Bracco on what was it like for you to listen to that? Oh my gosh. So bizarre. It's like another life. Another lifetime a lifetime ago. Million thoughts. But. I forgot how good the writing is. Now how how funny it is? And how how much dimension each of the characters have and. You know, the sound of each of the each voices so familiar and so kind of for not forgotten, but certainly far away. So it's a big deal. You were saying earlier that when you would have a fight with one a character with one of your children on the sopranos when the scene was over you'd give them a big hug just so that they knew the difference between your real feelings about them and Carmelo's anger at their character. So when you would have a big fight with Tony which you would do frequently on the sopranos would you and James Gandolfini, express, your genuine appreciation and respect for each other afterwards. No. Not necessarily are adults. We're adults the our adults. And also, I've said before also that Jim, and I were we didn't know each other all that. Well, really, we we didn't socialize much. And I it was not on purpose. I don't think or at least not consciously so but and I can only speak for myself. But I think because of that or maybe because I wanted that to be the case is he he really existed only as Tony to me. Because there wasn't really a lot of information about Jim the guy showed up to play Tony. So, you know, it's a lot of it felt pretty real and just to sort of jump back to our real people at the end of scene would have felt less satisfying for me. You know, we we pretty much were husband and wife when we were on that set, and it made an exquisitely satisfying. Acting experience for sure and world experience. But the fact that we were very much tornado Carmella. We were were you particularly sad when he died that you never got to know him as a man. You know, that's a complicated question. Gosh..

Anyway, Lorraine Bracco was one of those interview today, and she was like she was talking about. Well, obviously, she felt the way everyone else did who worked on the show. I watched the pilot. And I literally jumped for joy, I said this is the best thing I've seen. Well. She was great. She was great and goodfellas. Oh, she was wonderful and goodfellas railroad, his wife, and your buddy Michael imperial e was on an interesting interesting story about the creator David chase of the sopranos. David hated me in the audition David chase. You look so bored. And then I walked out I figured I didn't get it. And I was like, well, he's not even Italian this JC some white guys.

"And then all of a sudden, I remember watching this freshman thinking, this is I I know everywhere on the turnpike where he's trying. Pulaski, skyway big issue. Remember when it first came out. I thought to myself a lot of people thought it was kind of a rip off of analyze this. Deniro plays. The mobster goes Chris therapy. And I thought to myself, well, this just looks a little bit different here. Certainly with Lorraine Bracco who came in with some serious bona fide in the John Rowe from the goodfellas Dominic. Keane, easy who played junior was Johnny Ola from godfather part to Billy Batts. Well, he didn't come into later. I'm talking about. Gotcha. And I remember seeing the first episode. I'm like, oh my God. This is the greatest show. And it overshadowed the wire, which may just be the greatest television drama of all time. You make a case for about five different shows, probably. Game of thrones. I don't. I don't think I game of thrones is is incredible. But you're talking about. I mean, I think it kinda turns off some people for with, you know, I'm not part of the dungeons and dragons set I'm not watching that sort of stuff people who've never seen it true. Breaking bad is on the with right? You could you could turn off the music here for second. Breaking bad is the best basic cable show drama ever. Could you imagine breaking bad was on HBO or Showtime, or or pay cable and didn't have the guardrails, I think the guardrail does what made it so great? No, I understand. And they were sometimes there were some, you know, curse words that would sneak in on AMC, but it's breaking bad is the best not basic cable drama ever. And then when you open it up to pay cable, then you've gotta talk sopranos in the wire the wire is an opus that if I'm not mistaken never won an EMMY award. Which is crazy town. What else would you put on that list? We were talking about the Rama ever people are big west wing fans. I know that I never thought. But I know people terrific show. But I don't think it's on. I mean, they're different. It's it's kind of different flavors. My near talk about intense intense drama violence and family a bunch of with NYPD blue hillstreet boils like well. You know, our lawn our friend the late Stephen Bochco created the the concept of having a story line bleed from one episode to the next meeting in wrap it all up. Hillstreet blues is the first show that required a previously on montage before the show began MS sopranos is my favorite show. I think Tony soprano's the grayness character in. I haven't seen episode in forever. My my parents are binge-watching it again. And you are people are to HBO has been running them. Just every back. They say it. Everybody's telling me it lasts. These shows are it's there's a few things where you're like. Okay. Like, they still have three by four TV's, and they're all using foot phones, and you know. Yeah. The pay phones like oh. Gimmie on an outside line. But still it's just it's so well acted when when you think about James Gandolfini, eighty Falco only one three primetime Emmys crazy Joel truly oh..
