The Love Of Parents Continues To Shine For Dan Levy
I'm not quite sure whose star is becoming brighter lately - #DanLevy or that of his parents, Schitt's Creek co-creator #EugeneLevy and his wife #DeborahDivine. Don't get me wrong; it's clear that all the accolades that Dan Levy has received and continues to receive are very much deserved, and they don't give the coveted #SNL hosting spot to just anyone. However, his parents are gaining quite a bit of traction online thanks to their unabashed love of their son.
"Drag Race UK" Features Poignant Look At Gender Norms
Although I've watched all 12 complete seasons of #RuPaulsDragRace and am currently well into season 13, this is my first time watching #RuPaulsDragRaceUK. The most recent episode on January 28 on #Crave in Canada featured probably one of the most remarkable, poignant and heartwarming conversations about gender norms and life outside the gender binary between two of the queens - #GinnyLemon and #BiminiBonBoulash.
'Schitt's Creek' Co-Creator, Star Dan Levy Picks Up 'SNL' Hosting Gig
I vividly remember the goofy humor of SCTV growing up. It was my first exposure to #EugeneLevy, who would go on to become #DanLevy's dad. After a while, I sort of forgot about Eugene Levy until the American Pie movies came out, and it feels like I blinked and suddenly saw a young man who looked an awful lot like Eugene Levy hosting The Great Canadian Baking Show. Until that point, I really wasn't that familiar with the now-insanely popular Dan Levy, but that was largely because I didn't watch MTV Canada, where the younger Levy was a VJ.
'Girls Incarcerated' Shows Truth Of Many Imprisoned Girls' Lives
Kudos to #Netflix for coming out with a series that sheds light on the realities young inmates face. With Girls Incarcerated, viewers are taken inside a prison for young women, and while it's a no brainer to realize that these girls are not exactly living their best lives behind bars, the series gives its audience a distinct insight into the lives these girls were living prior to their arrival to the jail.
Dear Donald Trump: Don't Let The Door Hit You On The Way Out
Dear #DonaldTrump; To paraphrase Canadian musician #ColinJames, it's been four long years. There's been a lot I've had to explain about your tumultuous tenure to my girls, who are now almost-12 and 16 and were nearly-8 and 12 when you started your #WhiteHouse shenanigans. They've been allies of the #LGBTQ community for years, and when they learned that you were trying to pull protections for transgender youth and, in general, trying to make life more challenging for those who were transgender, they were dismayed and were full of questions about why you wouldn't want to keep these individuals safe. I didn't have a good answer.
Betty White Set To Turn 99, World Breathes Sigh Of Relief
Long live #BettyWhite - and she has. The ever-popular nonagenerian continues to trend on Twitter, initially leading those who saw she was trending to worry that perhaps she was ailing. From time to time, this has happened, causing all of us to race to see whether or not she was all right, and certainly, our collective concerns about the television icon's ongoing good health have not been made any better due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Not to worry, though; White is trending because she turns 99 on January 17, 2021.
'Warrior' Alex Trebek Offers Comforting Words To Audience
"We are trying to build a gentler, kinder society, and if we all pitch in just a little bit, we are going to get there." Heartwarming words from Alex Trebek, according to NBC News, at one of his final Jeopardy! tapings. No one knew this would lead into one of the beloved host's final weeks on set, and few actually knew how exhausted the man was as a result of newly returning to his hosting job following surgery. Executive producer Mike Richards said the comments, which were unscripted and came unbidden from Trebek, were surprising.
We All Need A Bit More Dolly Parton In Our Lives
When I was a kid, #DollyParton was someone who was largely a caricature. At least, that's how I remember her in my childhood memories, but then, that could be in part because I felt so much like one myself - gangly and awkward with a mouthful of braces and, of course, acne. Then, there was Dolly, who was of course in her late-30s or early-40s and looking like she could pass for late-20s. Petite, gorgeous, and talented - basically, everything I felt I wasn't at the time - but she made an indelible impression on me even then.
