Hello, my friends!
 
I am over the moon to be a part of the Dom and Jane Show. I am finally living proof of that old saying, “If you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life.”
I was born in New York, although I call myself a Ken Caryl girl… A Chatfield graduate to be exact. And my many adventures have brought me everywhere from Europe to California. The stage of Shakespeare’s Globe, to the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. And after years of soul searching, two broken engagements, four different colleges, and millions of hours in the restaurant industry, here I am. Yappin yer ear off on Mix 100.
 
A quick breakdown of moi includes, but is not limited to:
 
1. I would gratefully eat sushi for each meal every day of my life if I could afford it.
 
2. My dirty little secrets include, but are not limited to: a full-on nail polish addiction, Bryan Fuller television series, live bar trivia, Goonies/Pretty Woman quotes, Daddy-Daughter meals, boxed-wine consumption, Marilyn Monroe and Beatles snapshot collecting, and The Gin Blossoms. I freaking love the Gin Blossoms.
 
3. My doggie, Kramer, is the cutest Shih Tzu on the planet; quite possibly the cutest dog in the world. It’s really not fair to other pups how ridiculously adorable my Kramer is.
 
4. Friends are my family, and my family is my life… And oh how I love to embarrass my sucker friends and family.
 
5. I, without fail, say what everyone is thinking but too scared to voice out loud. It’s a blessing… And a curse. (As I’m sure you know from listening to the show!)
 
Let's be friends! I'm good for a chuckle or two. Find me on Facebook. And please, keep listening to the Dom and Jane Show weekday mornings for hours of laughs, stories, and general merriment. You, my dears, rock my world.  Check out my Instagram, Facebook or blog below!
 

They Cast HER as Whitney Houston?!?!

by Emily Makinzie posted Jun 9 2014 7:23AM
Ok. *deep breath* I take these things waaaaay too personal. Like the execs at a major television company are going to consult me on their casting decisions for upcoming projects.
BUT. Come on.
It has been announced that Lifetime is making a biopic about Whitney Houston's life. It will focus on her early career and relationship with Bobby Brown. Angela Bassett (heart!) is set to direct the highly-anticipated made-for-TV movie. (Say what you will about Whitney and her crack, but that woman had a tremendous gift.)
As a former “America's Next Top Model” binge watcher, (also on Lifetime... co-inky-dink?? I think not), I am unhappy about who was cast as Whitney. Very unhappy. Extremely unhappy. 
Like. Are you KIDDING me?!
Blarg. Oh well. Nobody consulted me when making the movies about Princess Di or Elizabeth Taylor, either. (Please note: both films were HUGE bombs. Just sayin.)
Should a studio get any wild hairs to make something about Jewel or Judy Garland, please call me.

I'll give her a chance
I am a fan of ANTM. and saw Yaya in the movie Take the Lead in 2006. I was actually impressed with her performance, mostly because I had low expectations. I think she's a decent actress but these are BIG shoes to fill.
