Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe answers our 7 Questions

Outlander's Caitriona Balfe answers our 7 Questions

Outlander star Caitriona Balfe credits bestselling author Diana Gabaldon for the series’ large fan base, but she’s far too modest to admit that fans are just as obsessed with her and her costar Sam Heughan, who bring the beloved characters of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser to life. Outlander will return for the second half of Season 1 beginning Saturday, April 4. In the new episodes Claire’s “beginning to realize how dangerous the world that she’s in now is. We’ll see her learn, she’ll definitely learn from these experiences,” Balfe tells. In a continuation from our earlier interview, the delightful … Continue reading

Outlander’s Caitriona Balfe on Sam, fans, new episodes and learning French for Season 2

Outlander's Caitriona Balfe and Sam Heughan

Caitriona Balfe is stunningly beautiful. Sipping her tea she playfully talks about the second half of Season 1 of Outlander, returning to Starz on Saturday, April 4 at 9pmET. Looking far younger in person than as the head-strong Claire Randall she plays onscreen, Balfe laughs when I ask her if her character Claire is ever going to be able to listen to Jamie (costar Sam Heughan). “Nope. Never. No. She’s a very head-strong woman. We know this,” Balfe says. “I don’t think that will ever change because that’s something that he loves about her. I do think that she’s beginning … Continue reading

Recap: Long Island Medium Season 6 premiere finds us emotionally drained

Recap: Long Island Medium Season 6 premiere finds us emotionally drained

Recap Long Island Medium: 25 and Counting (original air date March 8, 2015): She’s back. Long Island Medium Theresa Caputo begins the Season 6 premiere episode in her traditional narrative style, this time explaining how she and Larry have been together for a long time — 29 years actually (they’ve been married for 25). Theresa recounts several memories on how they met (they worked together at an oil company), while sharing photos from their younger days. It was a great 1990s flashback — bigger hair and all (pay particular attention to Theresa’s hair when she’s pushing Larry Jr. on their … Continue reading

Todd Hoffman on Gold Rush season finale and why his guys get more gold

Todd Hoffman on Gold Rush season finale

As the Klondike winter closes in exhaustion and frustration fuels many of the mining teams in the Gold Rush season finale.

We talked to Todd Hoffman earlier this week about the season … Continue reading

Born in the Wild recap, Episode 1: Mosquitoes and baby’s position prove to be challenging

Born in the Wild recap, Episode 1: Mosquitoes and baby's position prove to be challenging

Born in the Wild recap, Episode 1 (March 3, 21015): Lifetime’s new unscripted series Born in the Wild, which I liken more to extreme birthing, opens by reminding us that years ago women gave birth without doctors or drugs (if only they had the options, right!?!). Clearly, times have changed — thank you modern medicine — and now over 98 percent of babies in the U.S. are born in hospitals. This series, however, is not about those seeking traditional hospital birthing experiences, instead it’s the women who are looking to reverse the trend and give birth in the wild. Viewers … Continue reading

Interview with Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild on Lifetime

Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild on Lifetime

You may not agree with the birthing option selected by Audrey Bird from Born in the Wild, the first woman profiled on Lifetime’s new series premiering tonight (Tuesday, March 3 at 10pm), but there’s no denying that this birthing story is can’t-turn-away television. When I first read the initial press release on the series I was like “Wait, what?” As a hospital-birthing mother of three, the idea of a woman wanting to give birth in the wild (with no doctor on call) had me completely miffed. Like, who in her right mind would risk this — her health and the … Continue reading
