"Don't forget that every single thing that you have done that leads to this moment is useful to you in this moment. Because sometimes you go into something and you think, well, I'm not qualified to do this. How will every single thing that you've done? It could be folding t-shirts at benetton. It could be, you had a job as a ZooKeeper, that will really come in handy with a lot of places, actually. But every single one of those things, it all fuses together in a perfect way that allows you to articulate what your vision is, and all of those different skills will come in handy at any point in the future doing what your chosen field is. They are all useful. There is no time wasted. Never have any regret about what you have done in the past because we'll always push you forward to the future. That is a great answer. And that idea that you're not qualified. I just want to point out that only women think that. Yes. Totally. That never think. I'm not qualified enough. They just do the job. We always always remind ourselves of that. We're like, what man whatever second guess this? Keep going. So I really appreciate you saying that. Or having the right to say I'm doing a good job, period. Yeah. Yes. Yes. I actually, before we go and wrap, I actually have one more question, which is we're coming out of the kind of height of the pandemic, we're dealing with especially women in particular, have dealt with so much burnout. And just a lot of fatigue. So I'm curious for both of you, how do you protect and maintain your creative energy? You know, I want

"And that we were able to find what it was and help articulate what it was and the vision they had for their future. And then we're able to explore that and that the thing that has been built with shondaland that there's a place where you can continue to grow and expand, that's a gigantically satisfying part of this job. And it's wonderful that we can very often keep the people around us who we adore and think are incredibly talented, but also watching somebody discover what it is they love and they want to pursue and get to a place where they're getting to do it is one of the amazing gifts of what we do. And I think interestingly enough, we were doing it naturally. It was something that we naturally did. It wasn't a thing that we were even talking about. It was just how we operated in general. And now we're at the place where we can be much more specific about it. And purposeful about it. So now we can we're creating programs where we're bringing up line producers and we're creating programs where we're helping to train directors so that it's much more purposeful and we have sort of a plan, a larger plan for it. That makes our lives just a lot more fulfilling.

"We each have a panic button and a while ago we sort of talked about it and we said all right, look, it's sacred, if I hit the panic button, you've got to respond and vice versa. And in the old days, we called it the barking dog. We had this thing where it's like, something's bugging you in the back of your head and you don't know what it is, but you know it's bugging you, and you know it's going to be a problem. And I think very early on that was sort of the precursor to this because we'd each kind of look at each other and say, I think I've got a barking dog. And the rule was you never say no to a barking dog. You just accept that the dog is barking and it probably means something. And it always did. But I think the end result has been to, as we grown over the years, it's having to respect for each other to understand when the person needs the support, sometimes just to listen, but also the craft and creative business of problem solving. Shonda, what are the ingredients that Betsy needs to bring her best version of herself to work and thrive? Oh my God. It's really hard when you've known somebody as long as I've known Betsy and is intricately as I've known Betsy to think about what ingredients can she bring only because at this point and this might sound like really I don't whoo whoo. She's like a part of me. So I don't really I don't even know if I can describe that. Yeah. Like definitely like my other work half in a way that's really intense. So I don't know that it can be described in a very easy manner. Creatively, I know that if I have a creative problem, that's why I'm calling. I know that if I'm having an exciting thing, that's why I'm calling. Everything that we do, we sort of don't, we almost don't have to discuss everything anymore because our shorthand has become so well crafted between the two of us. I feel like Danielle and I have that so much. If somebody had a wiretapped us, all they would hear is, did you? Yeah, I did. Did you speak to I did? We don't we just like don't even finish sentences. And so it's kind of like you're describing that exact dynamic, which is, you know, it's such a, it's such an invaluable thing if you can find that in work. It's a very rare thing. I think if you can find that in a partner. And so I'm wondering for those that are listening, how do you advise them to sort of find that creative safety within work?

"Mean, I just remember sitting in the room because back then I was painfully shy. Very new to television. I had never worked in television before. Grace was my first show, really. And I was not a person who wanted to go sit in a room full of old men and tell them what to do. But I remember sort of thinking like, these guys don't know anything about what's happening in the world right now, but they're the people making the decisions. And so I'm struggling to come up with what to say. And then Betsy opens her mouth and says, do you want to say what she said, Betsy? Sure. Because they were saying, there's nothing relatable about to show. I mean, I mean, look at this lead character. Who's going to want to watch this? I mean, this is a woman who goes into work for her first day at a new job, having spent the night before carousing and drinking and having sex with a stranger. Who would do something like that? And shonda looks like she wanted to throw up, which was the appropriate response to this. But I couldn't help it. And I said, oh, that's me. I did that. That's absolutely me. And what I didn't say was, yeah, I was probably drunk when I came into work the next day because I wasn't I wasn't actually a doctor. So there was not that much at risk unless you thought bad development of a script might hurt somebody. But I remember saying that. And I just blurted it out because it was true. I mean, it was sort of like we've all had these experiences where we go, we do something.

"Some people don't need that creative partner, but to me, what's so wonderful is you know it's right. It's true. You know it's right when it's working. And it was always very easy working with Betsy in terms of talking about things creatively. We see the world in very oddly different but very similar ways. And we just get along. So right, if it's not working, I guess you know it's not working. And you shouldn't be forcing it. But for us, it just always worked. I also feel like there's a moment you come or you say, I don't know, this person brings out my best work. And there's something about working with shonda where I feel like she encourages me and I find that I do my best work, collaborating with her. It's the most exciting process. It is endlessly entertaining. And I think a lot of it is when you find somebody who makes you better at what you do, it's very often a really good partnership. Yeah. What do you look for when you guys are hiring now? I always say that we look for talented people who will argue with us. And by that, I mean people who are fearless and will tell us what they really think, but really we're in this great position now where we're able to search for sort of best in class people. We definitely like to bring in lots of young people and raise them and watch them grow in our company. But we also can bring in people who are just spectacular at what they do. And raise our game. And I think also it's funny people who share our approach in a lot of ways to material but who have strong points of view who bring a lot of their own point of view to the table as well. And we're just really passionate about the work. You know, bet that you had done a career pivot from acting in comedy and to producing. And I'm curious how you knew that this was the right path for you that you should actually pursue this. I think I knew because I wasn't that good at comedy for a while. I don't know, you made me laugh a bunch today. Well, good. And by the way, it certainly comes in handy on long days. But I think what was interesting for me was I was working as an actor and in comedy or trying to. And I got a job reading scripts because I couldn't get a job waitressing, which is a whole nother story. But all of a sudden, I found something really easy. And I don't mean that to be glib. It felt organic to me to be reading material and giving insights on how to improve things or it took every single thing that I learned from acting to studies in college to waiting on table. It took all of these different skills that I developed over the years. And all of a sudden I found this place where everything was useful. And first, it started with reading and giving feedback. But the whole concept of producing was something that

"You've been reading a lot. I know I've been reading a lot. That's why my brain is sort of dead. I think the last book I read was, well, I guess it's the book I'm reading now is the light we carried by Michelle Obama. Yeah. That's what's on my nightstand. That's what I picked up last night. So, okay, shonda. If you could spend first of all, let me preface this for those who don't know, shonda created the very critically acclaimed Carly's Aiken favorite, princess diaries two. While she is known for many other things, I would just really like to call that out. So shonda, if you could spend a day in the tan, the bridge return, or in genovia, where are you going? Oh, I think I'm going to Bridgerton. Genovia was a spectacular world, but very, very narrow. But either way, you get to be with Julie Andrews. Yes, that is. Consistency. Consistency there. Before we go to our broader conversation, inquiring minds want to know any chance of a crossroads redo redux. Bring that on, baby. Bring it on. Let's make it happen. Okay. So let's get into it. How did you guys meet? What's your meet cute? Oh my God, so we had a meeting set, 'cause I had told my agents I wanted to do television and they set me up to meet a bunch of different producers. And I drove to see Betsy beers in the production company that she was working in. And I got completely lost and I was late and I'm never late. I mean, literally like I'm the person who arrives everywhere even parties, embarrassingly, like ten minutes early. So I came in late and I was all flustered, and she was super nice about it. If I remember correctly, and we just started talking we had one of those moments where you start talking to somebody and you feel like you've known them forever.

"I remember getting called into a room full of old men and they brought us into tell me that nobody was going to watch a show about a woman who would sleep with a man the night before her first day of work. And they were dead serious. I'm Carly zakin and I'm Danielle weisberg. Welcome to 9 to 5 ish with the skin. We've run into so many questions over the years and had so many moments where we needed advice and we got it from women who'd been there. And that's what we're bringing you with this show. Each week we're helping you get what you want out of your career by talking to the smartest leaders we know. Because we know your work life is a lot more than 9 to 5. All right, let's get into it. Hi, everyone. Today our guests are Shonda Rhimes and Betsy beers. The award winning creative duo and partners in crime behind shondaland. Shonda and Betsy have worked together since the early 2000s, and they continue producing must see TV. Shonda has written and created some of our favorite shows from Grey's Anatomy to scandal and tons more. She has a CEO, a showrunner, a producer, and the author of The New York Times Best Seller year of yes. We should also note that she's a minor investor in the skin. Betsy is shonda's creative partner and the powerhouse executive producer who keeps the land part of shondaland running as she produces and develops shows with shonda and other writers. Recently, they've teamed up as co authors to give fans a behind the scenes look at their latest Netflix hit with their book inside Bridgerton. Xia and Betsy, welcome to 9 to 5 ish. Hello. Hi. We are so excited. We're gonna kick it off with some lightning round questions for you both. Are you ready? Uh oh. That's gonna be fine, don't worry. Go for it. Okay, what's one show or pilot that you'd love to bring back or revamp? And not necessarily one that you have produced. Lost. I would love you to fix that ending. I didn't say the ending made it flexing. I didn't say the animated fiction. I just am saying that I would love you to put your spin on it. I just love that whole idea and thought it was amazing. Betsy, we did a pilot very early on that somebody it was the first pilot we ever produced that Shawna didn't write. And it was about journalists and it was called inside the box, and I think we always really loved it. And I would love another chance to make a show like that. Excellent answer, Betsy. Thank you so much, John. I rather liked yours as well. You know, it could be like there's journalists and then they start a company and then ten years later they have a podcast called. This

"Is to come. All right, next up, read or listen to something that's inspiring. Now, many of you do this, but some of you want to do this but don't do it yet. When you read a new book, or for me, it's usually always audible. So when I tell you I read a book, I bought the physical book to highlight some areas that I wanted to remember, but I listened to the whole book via audible. I just enjoy that so much more. And so anyway, listening to a book reading a book, a physical book in your hand, listening to podcasts that inspire you, oh my gosh, I can promise you right now that is going to get you into the place you need to be in. And I want you to do this every single day. So Shonda Rhimes has a book called year of yes. She wrote the book year of yes. It's one of my absolute favorites. And I, of course, have it on audible, and so I literally go back to chapters that I've listened to like ten times when I need a shot of inspiration. So beyond just listening or reading something that will inspire you every single day. I also think you should keep a folder digital folder of some sort, something on your phone that it's like your go to inspiring, let's say you can keep your go to inspiring podcasts that you love to go to or those audiobooks that you love to go to. Just maybe even keeping a mental note, oh, there's three things I can always go back to if I need a shot of inspiration, re listening to things, kind of one of my most favorite ways to just get in the right mindset. And also, so I mentioned I love your of yes, but another book actually two books that I go back to a lot via audible are two of Mel Robbins books. So her newest book, high 5 habit. I think it's excellent. And also the 5 second rule. I love that book. It always gets me going. So anyway, I always have my trusted go tos. I have a few others, but those are two of my favorite. So make sure that you know what inspires you and just keep going back to it again and again are add some new inspiration to the mix, but you've got to have it ready when you need it most. And then next up, I want you to brag. I know we all hate bragging and I'll be the first to tell you it's not my favorite thing. It kind of makes me cringe. But hear me out. I think having a community of like minded people or people who have similar goals say like building a successful business, I think it's so important that you surround yourself with people like that. And I think an important piece of having that is having a space where you can share your wins and people will actually understand the level of commitment and the gravity of your accomplishment. So we have a community for my momentum members. These are all people who have gone through digital course academy, my program and then moved into a monthly membership with me called momentum. And in these communities, we encourage our students to brag. We say share something exciting that you've accomplished. It could be a huge thing or a small thing it doesn't matter. And what I love so much about these communities and when people actually share their wins are all the reactions they receive. I know that's going a long way. I love reading the comments. They cheer on one another. They get inspired by each other. They're supporting each other. It's huge. And you know that person who shared it, maybe it was kind of scary for them to share it or they're just like, I'm not usually in groups posting things, but then those comments come flooding in and it fuels them. It kind of gives them life in the moment when they probably need it most and it's boosting their self worth. So yes, well it may feel uncomfortable to brag or share your success. Think about how great it feels to support someone else when they share theirs, right? So why would it be any different? So I want you to find a community of like minded people and then maybe make it a practice to actually share your wins every single day with them. I do this a lot with my girlfriends who are in the industry that we text each other almost daily. And when something good happens, I will absolutely jump on there and share it. I also feel as though we as entrepreneurs need to remind each other what's possible and what's working and what's got us lit up so we can help each other. So I think it's important. So there you have it. I felt like it was important to record this episode because I wanted first to remind you that you are worth it that you are important that it's important that you get your message out into the world. I have no doubt, but on the days that you doubt it, on the days that you're not feeling it, try some of these things that I shared with you here because I only teach what I've done. And the reason I've done all of these things is because I too have moments where I don't feel as though I'm worthy. We all do, right? And so I use these on a pretty consistent basis and I thought you might want to use them as well. Next time you're questioning your self worth, come back to this episode sweet friend. Listen to it again to get that little boost of inspiration you need and then get back out into the world because your audience, those that you serve, they need you. Sending all my love your way and I can not wait to connect with you again soon. So remember we have whizzed on Wednesday where it's like a ten or 15 minute episode of a little nugget from an episode that was really popular and a reminder I want you to hear and then Thursday a full length episode usually where all my interviews are or my solo, how to episodes every Thursday. So don't miss them. I'll talk to you again soon. Take care. Have you ever bought something and didn't end up using it because it didn't work with your life? I recently bought a fancy food processor the other day and I've already donated it. Why? It was too complicated. It was too bulky, and ultimately just didn't make my life easier, so I gave it to my sister. So when you're looking for a CRM platform or a customer relationship management platform, you'll find a lot of fancy food ones out there. Platforms that promise an easy to use experience, but ultimately just end up taking space on your proverbial countertop, like that food processor. So HubSpot CRM platform is easy to use, purchase, and fall in love with.

"Business model to some extent is can you make that siloed but really passionate fan base, can you keep streaming out content? And so the lost daughter is great for, say, 30 something women, considering having a kid who are into frantic, who might also watch reality programming X and then are interested in Shonda Rhimes, Anna delvis. You know, it's like the profiles are shifting and the way that they're trying to build these bases, whether you're talking about comic book movies, whether you're talking about small movies, whether you're talking about reality TV, there's thinking in a different way. And movies are definitely taking a hit because of that, but the Oscars are really taking a hit. Because the Oscars are trying to come to a collective agreement on things that we just don't collectively agree on anymore. We just have our own little nerd spaces. And that's a real bummer, but I don't know what to do. I don't think there's a good solution. And that's the thing. That's all of this overwhelming emotionality. For me on the subject, I'm kind of like, well, it's ultimately resulting in a kind of nihilism around where things are going. And so increasingly our conversations on this show become about the history of movies than they do about what's happening in the modern movie culture, and that also is a problem. That is not helping current movies succeed because we're thinking about those convergence points that you're talking about. That adult middle that feels like it was such an essential part of the 1970s 80s and 90s in the movie culture that has slowly but surely been having the air let out of its balloon. Let's make up for it a little bit. We don't have a ton of time to recommend a couple of movies before we get into your mailbag. But I do want to talk about a few movies that are available to be streamed. Some of which were only in theaters, some of which were harder to find, and now you can see that may or may not be recognized during award season a couple of these are 20, 22 movies, but a few of them are 2021 and we never really got a chance to hit them on the hit on them on the show..

Yeah and the whole sort of like getting into be as like there are a you. You see a lot of companies saying okay. Here's a vir companion to the series that you might have liked very much kind of thing which is not a bad thing but that is not the same thing as a standalone vr experience. I would be very interested to see what this looks like. Especially because i mean jonah rhymes just it like you said a powerhouse This this is a definitely production house. That is very good at what they do. But what would be our look. It would look like whatever shonda rhimes wanted to learn. Bridgeton fine but like is that something that as a vr enthusiast. I will enjoy. Like i wanna see like show me what you got it. Well that's really what the the big thing here is freedom. China rhymes is a huge part of netflix's original content. She is about as big of a name as television is going to mint in her era and that means that she gets whatever she wants with the the entity for which he is going to sign with. What netflix has that places like a other studios would not is the ability to own their tech side. Everybody else in..

Now they're doing just whole Bunches of shows and keeping the lights on at these networks. Chuck Laurie. Every time. Chuck Laurie has a brain fart. He gets a contract to do a sitcom for CBS.

He's gonna do a new sitcom. That's a greater on network TV to fail that got so that guy feels right. I like Chuck.

I think everybody was thinking that cable would You know, rule the universe and that and that people would just stop watching local TV and Fox and CBS altogether and turns out cable is kind of like the CDs of television.

"The crown has landed on my head that way, not a killer. This is the way Yeah, to leave. The killer wasn't offered before me. If you're trying to curse you can't pull shirt. We have so many disasters bombarding us right now. Today, We're gonna talk about Bridge or Tim, one of the hottest shows on Netflix. Right now hot in various ways. We'll talk about that. In less than a month, more than 60 million homes streamed it. Naturally, a second season is already in the works. It is a Shonda Rhimes production. Richardson is set in London during the early 18 hundreds, and it follows the Bridget in family during the social season in which well to do young ladies are presented from marriage. Today is a most important day. And for some, a terrifying one. But today's the day London's marriage minded Mrs are presented to Her Majesty. The Queen. May God have mercy on their souls. Well, we've seen this type of drama in countless Jane Austen remakes. But this show is different in some key ways, namely, it is multiracial. Joining us to talk about Bridget Tin is Melanie McFarland, TV critic for Salon. Hi. Hi. Thanks for having me great to have you. Well, this really is the talk of well the talk of a lot talk of social media. And how did it become such a viral sensation? Well, I think there was already a lot of high expectation around the show for two reasons. One. It's one of very few of any adaptations of what is very much you know. It's a romantic novel. I mean, it's It's part of like the romance novel is just kind of generally looked down upon in literature. There are various reasons for that, and it's not right. But unfortunately, it's kind of a fact. So the fact that this is a serious that is being adapted. I think that already brought a lot of heat with it. And the second thing is Shonda Rhimes got a huge deal that killed her away from ABC and landed her Netflix and this is her first release with Netflix. And so I think a lot of people were curious. You see what that would look like, and it's very steamy. As a Shonda Rhimes production is it's d me? Yes, but I think one thing that Shonda Rhimes does really well in her Syriza is to show the world as she would like to see it, you know, And as she does see it in all of her production, she does have an element of inclusive casting now. With Bridger 10. The way that it's executed is in my opinion, not the best on we can talk about that a little bit more. But she also has its very fantastical way of looking at love, You know, even in Gray's, You know, all of the relationships are in some ways, you know, Even the breakups are, you know, hyper dramatic and kind of hyper fantastic. And here you have this very polite society. You know, with this, you know, all of the glamour of, you know, Regency all around it. To have Shonda Rhimes presented Ryan's production of Granted. It wasn't created by her. It was created by Chris Van Dusen, but to have her name attached to something like that. I think that there was a lot of expectation and for a lot of people, it exceeded those expectations of what a Shonda Rhimes Netflix production could look like. So you notice it from the get go. The first episode you see that The Queen herself is black Queen Charlotte and then later on the main romantic interest, the Duke Duke of Hastings. He is black and Quite fetching if I may say, and but that's not commented on until a while into the series, the multiracial nature of this and I just want to play a clip of a conversation between the Duke and the woman who raised him. About that, because this I think this is the first time that they talk about it. We would to separate societies divided by color until the king fell in love with one of us. I love your grace conquers.

The 5 biggest Netflix original series have been revealed
"Netflix. Says these are it's five most-watched original series now. This one is weird to me because we were talking the other day about mandalorian. How it's a real flagship series for disney. Plus it's generated subscribers and big budget and all the rest and we were curious where like we'll netflix's has been around for a while. What is their flagship stuff. And so i. I thought of stranger things i also thought about some of the money. They paid for a lot of those comedy specials I wasn't the the escobar show. What was that called. What norcal narcos was that. Another one yes. Ozark is very good. Okay oh sorry anyway. They've done them as done them. But i saw this list and this list kind of surprise a lot of shows. I never watched or heard of for their top five. Most watched shows and well some of them are recent. Which kind of explains you know. Maybe i'm not necessarily watching him. So some of them are recent but number of coming in at number five with sixty three million viewers by the way in order to be viewer. Show on netflix. All used to do is watch two minutes really just so you know that's the threshold while two minutes which for a series. It's kinda crazy to say you watch the series if you only watch two minutes. But that's the metric that they're using they They got this deal With the former the former producer maker of grey's anatomy scandal. What is her name. Rhymes shonda shonda rhimes. Anyway they produce this show. Renton and sixty. Three million people watched it came out recently. And never heard of yeah. See you've never heard of it. I've never i mean. I don't think it's targeted at us. By the way if you scroll down a little bit oh we don't see image for some reason but if you did see the image you would know it is not targeted at you. Okay and then you go or maybe you feel that that's targeted at you. Don't alley brought from sean to land. Who brought you grazing so her. Production companies called sean dillon. She signed one hundred. Fifty million dollar deal with netflix to make some content and this is one of them. That's coming in number filing number four tiger king. This one i heard of but i never watched. Did you watch that. no i'm with you. I've heard many things about it. Good and bad. So when i saw this have a big number for viewership coming in at number four. I believed it. Because i heard the chatter on social media right around the time. When a lockdown lifestyle was taking off it was a lot of tiger king talk. So i i understand that one. Go number three number three stranger things. That's the other one that i had heard about seeing some of the promotions. Seizing three was the top of the bunch. Sixty four million you can see. Some of these are pretty close. Scroll down to number two this one money heist which is a translation. This was a spanish show that i sure you've never heard of but huge in the spanish speaking world is it. Yeah i've seen The hero image on netflix But i haven't watched it. Yeah i guess it would be subtitles if you watched it. Yeah yeah and then coming. In at number one. The witcher seventy six million. Did you know this. Did you watch this I believe this was a really popular show. I have not watched it yet. You see that's going though to lot of. We did not watch it and we're netflix subscribers. So it's kind of. It's a bit interesting. Yeah but we don't watch anything really. I don't watch enough stuff to even say. Maybe this stuff is amazing. But if you ever if you were curious like what are the statistics of a popular show on netflix. This should give you an idea. Between sixty and eighty million between sixty and eighty million viewers is a hit considered a hit original for net flicks. I'd be curious what the mandalorian pulled off. Because i feel like there's a different level that's why i feel like is a big threat to netflix's model the disney's powerhouse in

"From executive producer Shonda Rhimes. What's immediately different about this period. Drama is the cast. Racially diverse characters populate all classes of British society, including Highest echelons, and the most eligible bachelor in all of England is a black man, The Duke of Hastings, who's played by Ray Gauge on page, he is a toll. Dark, handsome, brooding, thoroughly broken, man. Who is struggling with issues of legacy and pride and trauma, and he takes a tumultuous episodes trying unpick that joyous All of you on, in other words, a classic leading man for this kind of material. I think he fits pretty well into the archetype of comes, you know, the stoic, brooding Mr Eastwood type. He's very kind of you know, Darcy Heathcliff, Like all of these men, hugely emotionally stunted. I mean, that generally tends to be their attempts, not kind of trying to find their way through that. Absolutely. Absolutely. Though. You know, One of the most striking things about the Duke from the very outset is, of course, the fact that he is black. Tell me. What do you think that achieves when audiences taken A diverse cast like this? Well, I think it's incredibly important that when we are indulging ourselves from these kind of great big Cinderella fantasies that everyone gets to see themselves as worthy off. Status and glamour and love and redemption and being the protagonist in these stories and being the tightness in the settings where you can see yourself is Rich, attractive and admirable is important for absolutely everyone. And yet the story is not completely colorblind right? Like I want to talk about one of the few moments in the show where races directly addressed, there's this conversation between your character and Lady Danbury, who's like kind of a mother figure to Simon, the Duke. And she seems to be suggesting to him that the king and the Queen's interracial marriage is this huge step forward for black people way would two separate societies divided by color until the.
Ellen Pompeo Hints at Grey's Anatomy End, Khloe Defends Kim's 40th B-Day Trip Amid Backlash
"It's time for some daily. Pop Morgan. Is out today suggested I joined once again by actress kitchen night polio. Thank you for joining us from Georgia. Loving for having me. Thank you. says. They do even. Just in case. Well, thank you very awesome. I want some. Okay. One of your favorite TV shows may be ending grey's anatomy has been on for fifteen years and Ellen pompeo just made a very shocking confession about what is next she tells variety. We don't know when the show is really ending it, but the truth is this year could be at this is also the last year of Ellen's contract. Okay. So Justin. Do you think they should end the show now while they're on top because people are still loving the show. Grey's anatomy is Kinda Sorta like young and the restless in the sense that like it can go forever and could miss a whole year. I'm back watched two episodes and then be caught up again you know what I mean. Yeah and the answer minds right and almost reminds me of the time. Do you remember when the hills was I going off Air Lauren Conrad was going to walk out the church and it was going to finish and she thought the curtains were going. To close and all of a sudden kristen cavalieri walks in and they revamp did I think Ellen pump? POMPEO is gray but the show can survive without her but can't survive without Shonda see. So Shonda, of course, just send them big NETFLIX's deal and it's to my understanding from what I was reading that she is literally parting ways with ABC completely, which may mean she's not GonNa have our hands on this show as much as she has in the past maybe not at all. And without shining once you've created show. Yeah. But once you've created a show, it's your show and I mean who's changed things happen we don't know how her contract is structured it could just be humming net flicks. One hundred percent but do I mean I think ABC has Shonda rhimes was so early in her career I don't think any see would have given Shonda. rhimes so much ownership over that show where she could move it to ABC but I think that Shonda rhimes, this voice, her blood, her sweat is so in this show that yes if shot arrives went to Netflix she will still get her coins from this show and she will let Iran. We'll be run by somebody else. That's does her voice. Okay. So listen I know somebody who used to write for how to get away with murder and he told me that his job was literally pointless because he says we were instructed to come in with ideas and we always did we came in and we said here's this. Here's that here's this but it always went with whatever Shauna had envisioned. Thank you for your ideas. Those are good and all but. We're going to do this. Appreciates the help but what did you say? No I said well, clearly, she has something you know I know it can be frustrating for someone to shoot down your ideas but the longevity of her career and all the shows that she is there's a reason why they've been successful and I know the Debbie Allen has been doing a lot with race mad at me. You know. You never know she still no matter she goes to net she still you know that's still her show. They can't take that away even if she starts creating another network. One hundred percent you know what? I am all about being petty and I heard about the drama shameless ABC for not giving Shonda that extra fast pass at Disneyland Shame on you. But if I'm Shonda RHIMES, I don't give y'all keep the show going on still get the cash I'm not gonNA. You know bitch and fuss about it. I have two kids got college should be four and I love living fancy like Oprah. We'll see what happens but I know there's some diehard grey's anatomy fans that are just not ready to say goodbye yet. So we will have to wait and see okay Khloe Kardashian has a message for the people who are hitting on Kim's birthday trip. She told Ellen Degeneres. She knows this year has been very frustrating for everyone but there Was a good thing. I did hear that people were upset that we all went out of town but also its her fortieth, and this is something that she really wanted to do for us. It was such a nice thing and being there with all the precautions and everything that we took and being there and how grateful everybody was for the tourism aspect of it and how. So many people said that we were their first party or guests that they've had in months and what it's done like for them to be able to pay their bills or to do. So for their family I mean just hearing those. Yeah. Messages when we were there, it was really a we felt really good and we felt so safe. So safe Wow. You know I knew the minute that first photo went. Oh, here we go. It's GonNa be a firestorm and For me I went to Cynthia Bailey's wedding in Atlanta and a lot of people were giving flack about that I thought about it for ten seconds and when it's a milestone, a wedding or fortieth birthday or something. Of that magnitude, it's hard. Skip it. It's hard to say or I'll just wait until next year. So I completely understand why there was so much backlash but I also understand why you wanted to continue in go on with it because you know sometimes. Life Yeah Kisha. And and the truth is that you know they did everything I think unfortunately, the Kardashian. Sometimes are just a position where you're kind of damned if you do damned if you don't. I'm not mad at him. I'm like, go ahead live your best life you share money you should be able to spend it how you WANNA spend it and they did everything they could to keep people safe in terms of quarantine in terms of getting Kobe task I mean, what more can you ask for it? Some people are upset because they don't have the option to do it, but you know sometimes you you can't just live perilously through the and plan your trip that newest you.

Jennifer Lawrence Confronts Anderson Cooper
"Morning everyone are you ready for some day leave? Just out today. So Morgan and I are joined again by Kisha Knight Polio. Actress a mother and you probably know her from house of pain and the cosby show. Thank you for joining us again and we are. Coordinated, in our Maulvi Pinky we are. Show and here we go. All right. Have you guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean. One hundred percent yeah you need the right best e with you I like that okay. Moving out of channing tatum. So sad news I think channing Tatum Jessie j broke up again Jesse just posted this video drinking and dancing with the caption single live in a pandemic. That's how you get there strap. We talk about that. A source tells US Jesse and channing broke up months ago because they realize they're just better off as friends now they've brought up and gone back together multiple times at what point. Do you say this is finally do you think this is finally for these two I? I'm. Not Down here, you know I mean. Go ahead. No, you I mean I just think listen like you know it's supposed to be sort of like a new relationship is supposed to be fun. It's supposed to be easy and it might not last forever. But if it's supposed to be the fun easy relationship and you've already broken up four times in between that time, it just seems like clearly there's something here that is not connecting you to something is not working out. So just like leave it alone there's no reason for these to attack broken up three times like. In my yeah. At this point in life, you know my motto is. You know it's like spoiled milk. You don't put it back in the refrigerator. and. Come back and think it's going to be something other and foiled. On because clearly, it was gonNA work by now. Exactly Keach. Have you ever gone through this where you broke out was somebody got back together the whole thing I think that's something that probably when you're younger and you Kinda keep getting things to try and when you fall in love with the ones possibility I think as you get older and you've done it and you've learned that lesson, you realize you know okay you know what? This isn't working for me. It is. Okay. We don't have to make our. Yeah. I luckily, you said Fall in love with their possibility men is that true? Amir Young? You're falling in love half the time with just what you think. They're GONNA be your. Number set and then you realize that potential here and I. Think also when you're younger, you're more willing to be in a relationship that might not be perfect because you don't skip factor in time as much. But I think as you get older, you're like I don't have the time to waste on something that's really too difficult. You don't have the energy either
Jennifer Lawrence Confronts Anderson Cooper
"You guys been missing Jennifer Lawrence because I definitely have we haven't seen her much recently, but she is back. She hasn't changed a bit. She still holds nothing back. In fact, she's talking about that infamous fall at the Oscars and why is set off of nasty little battle between her and Anderson Cooper listen to what Jennifer said on Heather McMahon's absolutely not podcast. I'm sorry but interesting Coober I saw him on. CNN. Lee. Three days later saying like what she'd obviously the ball and it was so devastated this horrific humiliation to me that like took away like I don't know ever have a chance to give a speech that again I saw him at a Christmas party and I let him know my friend told me that they was. But he apologized and I think I think we're good friends now. Do you think I wanted to fall getting Oscar but I remember when I led with was have you ever tried to walk upstairs in a ball gown? Right. So then how do you know like I with that? He apologized. Oh my gosh. Okay. I gotta go straight. Ahead some pesky reporters. To write stories sometimes, it's so weird. I haven't been in therapy about it for years now anyway, what was the question? is you see this particular person which I know loves you so much Is and you got to run into him or her at a party. What would you WanNa do would you talk to her? Would you say something? Oh my God I feel like I've envisioned this interaction first of all shot to Heather McMahon because I love her she is hilarious hilarious. I am obsessed with her so I'm happy for her that she got J. Lo on her podcast I feel like. Jay Jay said Jay Lop. I said. On kidding. I wouldn't mess up but. I will say I've had visions of maybe approaching certain people that write things and I think it really depends on the alcohol consumption. Cooper I right. I would go to Anderson Cooper because he's a respectable journalist, he made a nasty remark. You know you're getting an apology out of him but some of these other bitches are a little nuts. So I don't know I don't WanNa fuel anymore fire. So it depends it depends one hundred percent i. think that's a very good point you have to know who you're dealing with because if it's somebody who really doesn't like you and you get that five, a day could very easily turn the story around and write a whole other article saying crazy Morgan or crazy. Kisha. Came up in screen that man apart. But the other thing they if they're already writing crazy thing, they can write it regardless you scream are not. So. That's also true. I would say you've got to follow your gut and I completely agree with more again it depends on how many drinks of the consumed evening, how you're going to approach because you know sometimes yeah. You know there's certain like the GENITA- Crown, it may go let. Me Go left. It also depends on who's with you right. If my husband was with me see, my husband gets much more fired up than I do and I know you might find that surprising but he would be the one that would literally do me to say something I think you should say something you should call that did out and. I'm usually the one that's like, no, no, no. No let's just let it calm down. But if I'm getting like talked up into it, then I might yeah, pay south. Yeah versus if I have someone that's like, it's not worth the babe just to let's just go over here I'll be like. All right. You GotTa have your backup backup. Yeah. You got to have the right height man. If you're wanting to do it, it's got to be someone that's GonNa go up with you and have your back no matter what comes out of your mouth but. It's also good in these situations with somebody who's not necessarily your friend to be as composed as possible but I think when you're so heated already. Interaction, never goes as well as you want it to. and. All. Thank you. Scream at them. Yeah. I'm GonNa, say real quick. I think also even better way to handle this have a good woman someone who could do your dirty work for you. So you don't have to be the one that goes says us that this Lella you can have them do it and then your hands clean.
Insiders scoff at Meghan and Harry's reported $150M Netflix deal
"We've been talking the last couple of days about Meghan Markle and hair, ese. Deal with Netflix. Okay. And there are some reports that have been saying that Prince Harry in Meghan Markle that their production deal signed this week with Netflix could be worth as much as $150 million. And Hollywood insiders are saying Absolutely not. There's no way it could be that much because they're producers, not content creators. So what The comparison is is to some of these deals like Shonda Rhimes, For example, you know who's created Grey's Anatomy on everything. She has a reported $150 million deal with Netflix and then the creator of Black ish Kenya. Barris. Also, that deal reported to be worth $100 million. But there's a top Hollywood agent who says that he'd be shocked if Meghan and Harry's deal was worth more than two million a year because they aren't creating these shows, you know, like Shonda And Kenya are creating the concepts writing. I mean, Shauna writes everything. Yeah, Yeah. Big difference. Mona Content she produces is extraordinary. Unbelievable. I mean, she writes she has a team to about 20. But yeah, I mean her her vision. Her concepts exacts important. You're showrunner and your head writer. They set the tone of everything right. So Harry and Megan, they're going to just kind of source it out and and they're going to hear a name on it. Yeah, and they're going to be producer so they'll put their name on it. But there will be other producers as well.
As Unemployment Skyrockets, So Too Do LinkedIn Learning, Coursera Enrollments
"From one day I'm David Brown and this is business awards daily on this Thursday April thirtieth. Have you learned something new over the last few weeks signed up for an online course on work related skills or maybe decided to take up a new hobby. You are in good company. My friend during the first week of January Lincoln reported that its users watched more than a half million hours of linked and learning. That sounds like a lot but the first week in April learners watched one point seven million hours of classes three times as many same transit true of other online learning platforms to among the heavy hitters in this category is core. Sarah launched in two thousand twelve. The platform offers virtual classes taught by university professors for a fraction of university prices. Since stay at home orders began. The company. Says there's been eightfold increase in enrollment in social science personal development and arts and humanities courses according to The Guardian? That's an unprecedented increase core. Sarah Chief Product Officer Shrub on Goalie told newspaper. So what's happening? Well like so. Many Corona virus related phenomena. A lot of things are happening at once. I of course it's simply that millions of people have been home and while parents are busier than ever trying to help their children learn online. Many people without kids at home have time on their hands. And there's only so much netflix you can watch can hear it amen. In addition millions of us are searching for ways to tame pandemic inspired anxiety both linked in learning and core Sarah have seen enormous enrollment jumps in classes designed to help us manage stress for instance core. Sarah serves up the yield course. The science of wellbeing last year. Half a million students took the course encore Sarah's online platform making it the company's bestseller but that's nothing compared to this year so far in twenty twenty one point. Six million people have signed up for the class and on linked in learning over the last few weeks. People have been gravitating toward classes on mindfulness stress reduction and resilience. And then there's the elephant in the room layoffs as of last week. More than twenty six million. Americans had filed for unemployment. Some people are using. This moment is an opportunity to learn skills. Intended to make them more employable to prepare for job-hunting students are signing up to learn everything from data science and computer to personal branding both core Sarah and linked in are also trying to help solve pandemic related problems. Normally Corsair sells a version of its platform to schools and universities but when schools closed the company offered it to them for free in February fifty campuses were paying for the service today. Sixty eight hundred. Schools and universities are using the platform.

The company launched the program last week in Illinois Oklahoma and Arizona linked in to is offering classes in everything from small business management sales skills leadership for free to anyone who wants them unemployed or not normally linked in courses come with premium memberships. Which cost thirty dollars to a hundred dollars? A month courses from these platforms are useful but also quite serious. So what if you're just looking to learn something new for fun? Will you could turn to masterclass which offers eighty courses taught by celebrity? Instructors consider for instance a class self expression from Dragonstar Rupaul. Tennis from Serena Williams were screenwriting from Shonda rhimes. One class costs ninety dollars. In annual all access pass is just twice that much masterclass which is privately held. Says it's enrollments are growing but it's tight lipped and won't give any numbers away. Clearly though masterclasses leaders know how to grab eyeballs with so many of its ideal customers at home. It seems to be advertising more than ever video trailers seem to be all over facebook and instagram streams. The company claims it has an increased. Its advertising budget is just targeting its prospects precisely still. The ads are so ubiquitous that Saturday. Night Live spoofed. M. S. and L.'s. Version parodies actor Timothy.

Of course masterclass has such diverse
Nell Scovell: 'Ten Years Ago, I Called Out David Letterman. This Month, We Sat Down to Talk'
"Welcome to the frame John Horn ten years ago. TV writer Nelson Avella took a pretty big risk. She published an article calling out her former boss. Late night King David Letterman for running writer's room and a show that favored men scovill has since co authored. Sheryl Sandberg's two thousand thirteen book. Lean in and last year she published a memoir. You're just the funny parts and a few hard truths about sneaking into Hollywood boys club for her latest piece. In Vanity Fair Scoville met with Letterman to finally talk about gender discrimination at late night. Scoville join me in studio and described what it was like to write for Letterman in one thousand nine hundred ninety. Yeah so this was a dream. I'm job for me I had already worked in Los Angeles. I actually worked on the last season of newhart. And I'd written a Simpson's episode road and I finally. After years of sending material to the Letterman people got a call asking me to come in and meet with Dave and like a lot of late night shows not a lot of women in the writer's room. Now there's only been one before I got hired it was Merrill Marco who was a genius and the first head writer on that show and also Dave's girlfriend at the time so I guess I was the first female hired who was in a relationship with Dave so many years after you leave the show in two thousand and nine something compels you to write about your experiences sir. Right Dave was the victim of a blackmail attempt. He was having an affair with one of his assistants Whose boyfriend found her diary and the scheme was that he threatened to write a screenplay about the affair? If Dave didn't give him two million dollars at the same time Nancy Franklin writes a piece in the New Yorker that points out that there were zero female writers on Letterman Leno and Conan. And I have to say Dave's announcement was not surprise. Is anyone who worked on the show knew about his extracurricular activities. But the fact that I'd been gone for twenty years and they'd move backwards awkward as far as gender in the writer's room that was stunning to me and I literally lost sleep so on a fast forward word to a decision you make and certainly there's another party to this conversation which is going back today. Insane I want to have a conversation about about the fact that you didn't respond to what I wrote. And how did that come about because there seems to be an important condition and that is that it's on the record as we approached October twenty nineteen. I knew it was the ten year anniversary of this article I had written for Vanity Fair and then I just got this crazy idea which is With Dave sit down and talk to me and I knew he hadn't read the article because in this weird coincidence he and I ended up working together in twenty fourteen on the Kennedy Center Honors and I actually had a chance to ask him. Did you ever read that article. And he said to my face no. I don't worry about that stuff. Don't worry about that stuff it meaning inning. He didn't wear. He doesn't worry about what people write about him. Is that what it means. Already doesn't worry about how he behaved and how he treats women he claims it is the former when you sat down with David. I'm curious what was the most striking thing that he had to say. Well first of all it was pretty extraordinary that he agreed to sit down with me. If you do any reading about apologies and someone wronged you find out that as the person who has been wronged you lose status status and so the second Dave agreed will sit at a table and talk. He really did offer me the status right. We were equals at that table and I would love to see more powerful white men doing that sort of thing which is being open to that discussion so the point was not just for me to get what turned out to be an apology from Dave but also to you try to model behavior that I would like to see more. We're talking with TV writer and author Nelson cavill you mentioned in your Vanity Fair Peas. How male all writers rooms have been for people like Jay Leno and he has no regret and no apology? No it's all about the material. Just if you give me material than I will hire you. Just come up to me in a comedy club. He says you know Jay Leno went off. The air was zero female writers and that's he should be ashamed that for the rest of his life. What would you say are the things that make you optimistic about how conversations are changing not just in and around this issue but in the workplace about a show runners interest in hiring a room that looks like the country not like the country club? I do think we've made some improvement and I think it certainly helps to have people like Kenya barriers and Shonda rhimes who have been so successful and even giverny They're all doing amazing work. And I think it's Shonda who made an amazing observation. which is if you walk outside? You see people of all colors. There's US see people from all walks of life that's normalcy so we actually shouldn't call it. Diversity what we want is normalcy. You know in Nineteen nineteen ninety. I went to the EMMYS for the first time Letterman had been nominated and I was in the audience when they announced the nominees for the five best comedies comedies and it was Murphy Brown Golden Girls Designing women wonder years and cheers three and a half of those shows were created by women. Diane English one for Murphy Brown and I sat there in nineteen ninety and thought we we solve this. We proved it. You're if such a dreamer now I just want to get back to where we were in. Nineteen Ninety nells. cavill is a TV writer. She's the author of the memoir. Just the funny parts in a few hard truths about sneaking into the Hollywood boys club. Now thanks much for coming in. Thank

Lack of media diversity an effect of slavery, BuzzFeed beauty director
"As the beauty director of digital media, giant BuzzFeed, essence, can't make sure it's content is inclusive and sensitive helping to balanced representation and reflect diversity growing up in the southern US state of Georgia. She recalls that she was surrounded by people who always validating, her as a black woman, but it was only later, she said, in an interview with you a news that she realized how underrepresented people of color were in the media, highlighting lack of diversity, as a direct result of the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with MS Gant told Anacom, what media needs to do to change. The narrative my main message was around representation because I work in media, and I think the lack of representation and diversity as we see it in media, whether it's like, TV magazines movies, whatever it is, is that wrecked result of, you know, the effects of slavery, that we're still dealing with just a lack of representation the lack of diversity at every level. Well, in media from people behind the cameras that people on the camera to people writing stories, and telling narratives, and so my main message was that, you know, that matters in the media landscape because media such an important tool for education and for helping to change narratives and so change norms, and to help redistribute power. So we were speaking about the facts of slavery today. What do you think it's the importance of still learning about that period of history in the present days, I think it's something that we always have to educate ourselves about it just can't be lost as such a huge part of our history. And you can't ignore it. And you can't act like it didn't happen because it did. And people are still suffering here in the US and all around the world as a result of it. I think that it does a disservice to people who were victims of slavery when you act like that part of our history doesn't exist. So in order to honor them in order to make sure that they're. Our lives were not lost in vain, and that their suffering was not in vain. We have to keep talking about it, and we have to be realistic and acknowledging that we're still paying the price for it even today. And I think that it's important also because we have to do better and it, how it reminds us of mistakes that we've made so that we can hopefully, correct them so he worked for BuzzFeed, can you tell me a little bit about your work, and what specifically do do in order to change the stereotypes that you feel that are still into society, and especially in the fashion world, for sure? So I work at BuzzFeed, I've been there about four years, and I am the beauty director there now. And I guess a short bulletin list of what I do is really helped to shape the tone and language around content, especially as it relates to women's lifestyle and diversity. So I try to make sure that the content is inclusive and sensitive, my role in helping to change their you'll type. It's just by normalizing. Representation and diversity. I think that those things become a thing quote unquote when we don't see them often. And that's why you know, it's such a big deal when there's an all black cast for movie because it's not something that, you see, so often, even though you see all white casts for movies or it's a big deal. When you see a black woman on the cover of a magazine, because traditionally, we have not been on the cover of magazines. We've not been heralded as the standards of beauty. And I think that through my work in acknowledging that and trying to do my part to combat that I try to just normalize that and normalize black people's place in media to normalize our seat at the table, without always a disclaimer, without always saying, you know, here's this beautiful black transgender woman, and here's her story is just like, no, here's this beautiful amazing, awesome human being. And here's her story. Sorry, because I've never opens a magazine or watched TV and saw disclaimer, when it came to white people, it's just what it is. It's the norm. It's the standard. And I'm just trying to make you know, other people apart of that Norman standard just as readily do feel that it's changing somehow or do still feel like it's a lot of just covert. I do. I, I don't know if I believe it's changing for my own sanity and wanting to believe that, you know, we are progressing that humanity is progressing, but I do see small changes. I think that beliefs in how we feel about people, and how we judge people is so ingrained in that own, we're so conditioned to, to judge and make assumptions and treat people, a certain way and there has to be a conscious on learning and desire to unlearn those things. But and I think that is like the part that takes the longest because it's really, really hard to unlearn what she's been taught for so long, but I do see changes in just the up the uprising of black people in the space in media, particularly and the arts and just the unapologetic nece and the creation of their own opportunities to create their own narrative. So we're no longer depending on white. Filmmakers in Hollywood were no long. Depending on white women's lifestyle publications we're creating our own as we've seen with, you know, people like Ryan Kugler overdue for nay, and shonda rhimes and people at a much more micro level like myself, and Julie Wilson essence magazine. We're seeing it at every single level. So in that regard, I will say that I think it's, you know, getting better because we're at a point now where we are empowered enough to start creating some of those changes that we wanna see do you have any personal story that you would like to share that you felt that inspired you throughout your life, or that made you follow this path, or this passion of yours for sure. I don't know if it's like much of a story, but I think just my own experience. I'm from Georgia. I'm from the south and I grew up and black church in the south, and I will say that a black church, especially in the south every Sunday is where you will see some of the best beauty. And fashion that you've ever seen in your lives from the makeup to the hair to the big church hats. And so I've just always been around that representation, and I can honestly say that, that impacted me in such a positive way and made me feel so confident about myself, because the woman that I was surrounded by who looks like me were very confident, and they invested in what they looked like and how they carry themselves and so it gave me this confidence and to a point that I was somewhat unaware of all the bias until I got a little bit older because I was just so rounded, so heavily by people who were affirming invalidated me and my existence as a black woman, and then, you know, my grandmother was a hairdresser. She had a shop attached to the back of her house. My oldest sister is now a hairdresser and owns her own salon in Augusta Georgia, and my parents were very good about keeping media and publications around the house that reflected us as a family. So we watch TV shows that had black. Families appearance always had essence and ebony magazines and the house. So I was always constantly seeing reflections of who I was that significantly impacted the way that I navigate throughout the world. I don't walk with my head down. I wasn't afraid to go after opportunities. I wasn't afraid to have big dreams because that's what I saw people doing around me, who looks exactly like me. And now that I'm older. I'm so grateful for those opportunities and just that experience that I had because I see the benefit, and I and I'm reaping the reward of that. And so now it's become such an intentional part of my own career, you know, talks about it a little bit earlier, but even getting into media and women's lifestyle from a far it can seem very shallow or superficial, but is so much deeper than that for me. It's not about cosmetics. Although I love those things. It's not about fashion. It's about having a seat at the table and being able to be in a position of power to change the narrative, and to change the converse. Station and to expand it and to call people out when they get it wrong and says show, you know, girls who are dark skin, whether they're in the US, whether they're in Africa, whether they're in India that they are beautiful, even though they are left out of the beauty standard and they're left out of the narrative, and that they don't need to bleach their skin. It's, you know, being physical representations also allows me just by simply being there in existing. I'm able to show other girls who look like me that you don't have to straighten your hair if you want to you can because you're the authority on your own body and what you look like. But if you want to keep your hair in its natural state, no matter how tight the curls are or how kinky they are you can do that, and it should just as beautiful, and you don't need to change. There's nothing wrong with how you are physically made up. I think all of those things have definitely played a role into just my conviction and making sure that I get those messages across you were speaking to the use if you could just give them one. Advice to go through life and feel secure and confident of what they are, what would that be? I think that if I had to give the students advice or any young person advice is that your enough, and I know that, you know, we hear that so many in so many different ways all the time. But it's so true you're enough. You have everything you were born with everything that you need in this world to survive and make it through, and I'm not talking about material things. I'm just talking about your components as a human being you're intelligent. You're beautiful. And you know, your perspective and your experience is what makes you special. So when we talk about intelligence and smarts, it's not always like book, smart like you need to do what you have to do in order to get through school. And that's very important. But are you socially aware? How smart are you about your own self and your own abilities? And your own bias sees how, you know, do you talk to other people who don't look like you do you firm those relationships? So you figure out are do you talk to other people and ask about their experiences. Those are the things that make you smart and that make you sensitive and conscious. And so, I would just say, as long as you have the as long as you are able to do those things, then you, you'll have everything that you need to navigate through the world. So don't ever feel like just because you're not reflected in on TV are in a magazine that you're that you're not worthy. Are that you don't have what you need that you don't have the essential tools that you need to make it throughout the world because you definitely do.
Claire Foy Says She Was Never Actually Given That Back Pay She Was Reportedly Promised for 'The Crown'
"It's recess, and I did end up seeing mission, impossible fall out this weekend and I can confidently tell you that I did not understand a single thing that happened except that Henry Cavill grew a mustache to try to trick us into forgetting that he was superman, but I'll never forget and they'll never forgive speaking of hiding behind your facial hair. It's time for the news or as I like to call it your recess from the real news. Here we go. A new cooking show is coming to net flix called the curious creations of Cristine McConnell. It was inspired by the Instagram of McConnell who makes weird creepy pastries, and then post pictures of them. We are in the middle of a trend where apps turn into cooking shows nailed it was inspired by Pinterest. This new show was inspired by Instagram, and I think now it's time for a baking show inspired by Tinder where two opposing teams bake an extravagant cake and then take pictures of the cake on a hike. So people know that the cake is outdoorsy and adventurous and then take a picture of the cake with a dog so that the cake seems playful and nurturing, and then add a picture of the cake at a bar so that at some level you're warned that this cake is not looking for a serious relationship that cake is sending a pretty strong message with that bar picture. Don't let the dog picture fool you. It is a trap tenure barris, the creator of blackish and right. Her of girls trip is leaving ABC studios to accept a potential nine figure deal with net flicks. This is just the latest installment in net flicks poaching creator from another network. It just happened earlier this year with shonda rhimes on a separate note. I had to count what nine figures meant on my fingers. And then once I did, I had to Google how much money there is in the world because I was worried that Netflix had maybe used it all buying shows that haven't been written yet Claire Foy who played the Queen in the Netflix series. The Queen was promised backpay after the news broke that she was paid less than her male co star this despite the fact that she was playing the actual Queen from the title now clear for says she has not gotten paid yet, which is very good evidence for my theory that Netflix has used all of the money. This could cause wides. Spread chaos, but don't panic. Money is over. So let's just decide on a new currency right now, my vote is for gently used hair ties or half empty tubes of chat stick either way. I am a millionaire now, the Chilean adventures of Sabrina are coming this fall. It's the reboot of Sabrina. The teenage, witch starring Kieran Shipka who was so ice cold sassy as Sally and madman that I was almost like, whoa, Sally take it easy on your dad, Don Draper. Yes. He brings suffering to literally everyone around him, but you're mean, girl, I roll is going to make him wish he'd never conned his way out of that horror house and even better news. The series will drop on Netflix right before Halloween. Is it just me or do you also suddenly yearn for the holidays? Right smack dab in the middle of summer. Do you feel it too? What are you doing right now? Should we throw on some costumes rosta Turkey and watch? It's a wonderful life. Oh, yeah. And just. One more quick thing over the weekend, Nick Jonas, former Disney star and member of the Jonas brothers, a pop group that was basically Hanson except that they all had Brown hair and didn't want anyone having sex before marriage got engaged to good, Joe pra actress, former Miss World. One of the biggest celebrities in India and friend of Meghan Markle's who wore the sickest purple hat to her wedding. These two got engaged after dating for two months. So I just wanted to give you a heads up that the rapid celebrity engagement is here to stay and I couldn't be more thrilled getting to know each other is for normal people when it comes to my famous is I want couples and I want them immediately. Do you hear me celebrities? You'll get a fiancee, you get a fiance, and just when it seems like you should be going on your third date, boom, you get a fiancee, here's how I want my celebrity relationships to go. Oh, hey, I just met you and this is crazy, but here's my number. So let's get married. It's a perfectly legitimate plan. What it lacks enforce. I'd it makes up for in. Ooh, they did what take care guys. I'm Olympia heroin, and I will catch you next time until then recess adjourned.
