During the After Show, Dolly answered virtual audience questions and talked about her involvement in “Buffy The Vampire Slayer” and says she’s guest starring in “Grace and Frankie.” Andy also asked Dolly what she thinks about Britney Spears and the Free Britney movement and Dolly says if she’d ever consider doing a Las Vegas residency.

Wentworth Miller reveals autism diagnosis: “Let’s just say it was a shock. But not a surprise”

Out actor Wentworth Miller, who gained fame on TV’s Prison Break and more recently starred on Legends of Tomorrow, took to Instagram this week to reveal his autism diagnosis.

He writes:

Like everyone, life in quarantine took things from me.

But in the quiet/isolation, I found unexpected gifts.

This fall marks 1 year since I received my informal autism diagnosis. Preceded by a self-diagnosis. Followed by a formal diagnosis.

It was a long, flawed process in need of updating. IMO. I’m a middle-aged man. Not a 5-year-old.

And (it’s a “both/and”) I recognize access to a diagnosis is a privilege many do not enjoy.

Let’s just say it was a shock. But not a surprise.

There is a now-familiar cultural narrative (in which I’ve participated) that goes, “Public figure shares A, B and C publicly, dedicates platform to D, E and F.”

Good for them. /srs

And (it’s a “both/and”) that’s not necessarily what’s going to happen here. I don’t know enough about autism. (There’s a lot to know.) Right now my work looks like evolving my understanding. Re-examining 5 decades of lived experience thru a new lens.

That will take time.

Meanwhile, I don’t want to run the risk of suddenly being a loud, ill-informed voice in the room. The #autistic community (this I do know) has historically been talked over. Spoken for. I don’t wish to do additional harm. Only to raise my hand, say, “I am here. Have been (w/o realizing it).”

If anyone’s interested in delving deeper into #autism + #neurodiversity, I’ll point you toward the numerous individuals sharing thoughtful + inspiring content on Instagram, TikTok… Unpacking terminology. Adding nuance. Fighting stigma.

These creators (some quite young) speak to the relevant issues more knowledgeably/fluently than I can. (They’ve been schooling me as well.)

That’s the extent of what I’m inclined to share atm.

Oh – this isn’t something I’d change. No. I get – got – immediately being autistic is central to who I am. To everything I’ve achieved/articulated.

Oh – I also want to say to the many (many) people who consciously or unconsciously gave me that extra bit of grace + space over the years, allowed me to move thru the world in a way that made sense to me whether or not it made sense to them… thank you.

And to those who made a different choice… well. People will reveal themselves.

Another gift.

Today’s Morning Man: Steven Romo!

This gorgeous guy is Steven Romo, a news anchor and general assignment reporter for the ABC News station KTRK Channel 13 in Houston.

Romo has appeared on ABC News platforms discussing his reporting experiences, beginning with coverage of Hurricane Harvey and the storm’s deadly aftermath. He also appeared on Good Morning America in. 2019 to support charities that fight poverty in the Houston area.

He got his start in journalism while attending Texas A&M University, where he wrote for the student-run newspaper, The Battalion. He joined ABC in 2016.

A week ago, Steven announced his engagement in an Instagram post and wrote:

I grew up with secrets. My family fought together to hide that we lived in a house full of garbage with a horde of dogs. But what they didn’t know, and was arguably even more difficult, was that I had a secret to carry all on my own: I was gay and trying with all my heart not to be.
It took me years to see—despite what people at church might’ve said—being gay saved me. It made me strong. Strong enough to eventually stand next to the best human I’ve ever met and ask him to marry me.
Before I met Stephen Morgan, I thought maybe this kind of love just wasn’t in the cards for me. That it was a journey I’d never take. But now I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. In my whole life. And I’ll soon be moving to New York City with the person I want to spend the rest of my life with.

Time Capsule Tuesday: When fans converged upon Tower Records for Joan Rivers album signing

This popped up on my YouTube suggestions randomly and it really was a delicious time capsule from 1983. I was a closeted teenager and such a big Joan Rivers fan that I would tape her Tonight Show appearances with my cassette tape recorder. My laughter could be heard on tapes. This gem of a video was shot for The Norman News at Beverly Hills High by student journalist Jon Cherney. He interviews fans before and after they get their album signed and a few of them even attempt Joan Rivers imitations. In Cherney’s brief interview with the star, she gives a personal shout out to the kids at Beverly High.

Enjoy this trip in a time machine!

Tribute: Vivian Vance was born 112 years ago today

As Ethel Mertz on I Love Lucy, she will forever be television’s greatest sidekick.

The proof is that more than 65 years since the debut of the classic sitcom, we are still watching and laughing at the antics of Lucy and Ethel and celebrating their friendship.

Vivian Vance, a 1954 Emmy winner for her performance as Ethel, was born 112 years ago today.

While Lucy and Ethel cannot be topped, Miss Vance and Lucille Ball came close in the follow-up series The Lucy Show as Lucy Carmichael and Vivian Bagely. They starred together for three seasons before Vance quit due to a grueling cross-country commute. The show went on for three more years but was not near as good without Vivian. who still made a guest appearance once a year.

Below are a few scenes from I Love Lucy, The Lucy Show as well as some of her Maxwell House Coffee commercials when she played Maxine the coffee lady.
