I am beyond thrilled to share with you another amazing experience! I will be heading to Los Angeles Sept 19-21, so follow my Twitter and Instagram for Updates! Also follow #QueenofKatweEvent AND #ABCTvEvent for more!


Disney has invited me along with 24 amazing bloggers to experience the much anticipated Queen of Katwe (in theaters Sept 30th), a film about Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi who went from impoverished streets of Uganda to the first female Ugandan chess champion. Through her life she is faced with the tragedy of losing her father and sister, to meeting chess coach Robert Katende who will change her life forever when he teaches her how to play the game.

The film stars Oscar Winner Lupita N’yongo (12 Years a Slave, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Phiona’s mother Harriett Mutesi, David Oyelowo (Selma, The Butler) as Robert Katende, and newcomer Madina Nalwanga in the role of Phiona Mutesi. I am THRILLED to be interviewing many of the cast as well as the subjects. Interviews will include:

  • Lupita N’yongo (Harriet Mutesi)
  • Madina Nalwanga (Phiona Mutesi)
  • David Oyelowo (Robert Katende)
  • Martin Kabanza (Phiona’s brother “Brian Mugabi”)
  • Phiona Mutesi
  • Robert Katende
  • Mira Nair (Director)

I will also be walking the red carpet for the premiere!

I will also be visiting the sets of both The Middle and the new ABC sitcom American Housewife! Much of those experiences will be a big surprise so I don’t even know enough to tell you about it. What I CAN say is I watched the pilot episode of American Housewife and it’s HILARIOUS… Check out the trailer below:

And Patricia Heaton is back in The Middle! I love how these two shows display motherhood so differently, yet so relatable to every mom out there.


PLUS.. I will be watching the season  6 premiere of Once Upon a Time with creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz! This show has been such a treat to watch – I am excited to find out what happens with the latest villian – Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde. And will Belle EVER wake up? What’s up with the Evil Queen now that’s Regina is free of her?

PLUS (yes another plus) – checking out all that is The Real O’Neals! Squee!!
