09.23.2016 | By |

In this seventh episode, actor Mark Consuelos, whose new show PITCH premiered this week on FOX, talks to me about what it’s like to co-host with his wife, “Live with Kelly Ripa,” the most coveted seat in morning television right now, plus, his opinion on whether he feels more Hispanic or American, and his answer on what his favorite album is… will leave you crying.  Read More

The First Official Look At The ‘Passengers’ Trailer Starring Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence

09.20.2016 | By |

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BWWWQzTpNU

Finally! Here is the first trailer for the new Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence sci-fi thriller directed by Morten Tyldum (who helmed the fantastic “The Imitation Game”). For a while, not much was known about the plot… until now. The film has a similar vibe to Alfonso Cuarón‘s “Gravity” in terms of style and flair and that movie went on to win 7 Oscar awards, including being nominated for Best Picture. Worth mentioning, Colombian director and son of Gabriel García Márquez, Rodrigo García, also had a movie called “Passengers” starring Hathaway.  Nice to see Cuban actor Andy García making an appearance in the highly anticipated trailer.  Read More

TODAY: Is The Taylor Swift / Katy Perry Beef Real And Is Taylor Releasing A New Album October?

09.12.2016 | By |

Photo above refers to the Pitch Perfect wedding, but we’re here to chat Taylor/Katy. I went on the TODAY show this morning to discuss some celebrity news with TV icon Kathie Lee Gifford and the talented Hoda Kotb and one of the topics I spoke about, apart from some celebrity weddings and Amy Poehler’s Creative Arts Emmy win, was about Taylor Swift’s beef with Katy Perry OR is it the other way around? Watch the video as I tackle the reasons behind the putative friction amongst both pop superstars and if Taylor will be putting out a new album this October. We have a feeling yes due to a fact I mention on air.

‘Highly Relevant’ Podcast Ep. 5 En Español: Cristy Marrero De HOLA! USA, Kika Rocha Habla NYFW

09.9.2016 | By |

I did a Spanish version podcast. Hice un podcast completamente en español. It’s so cool to be bilingual. If you’re not, learn a new language and give it a try, it feels exhilarating. The benefits of expanding your message, conveying more, listening to more, more, more of everything are such a head rush. I wish I knew many more. This is one of the reasons I did this podcast en español…  Read More

‘Highly Relevant’ Podcast Ep. 4: Willie Geist, Fall Movie Preview, Richard Tanne

09.3.2016 | By |

This fourth episode sees me getting in a groove with my podcast. I asked Willie Geist, who has interviewed me for TODAY’s pop culture segments for the last 3 years, to come on the podcast and he said yes. The interview was actually supposed to happen 2 weeks ago, but the Olympics kicked in and we thought it better to push it to this weekend when his new SUNDAY TODAY show was back on air. The interview went fantastic just like I thought it would. Willie reminds me a bit of the gentlemen anchors of yesteryear who gave media its stature. Think Sydney Lumet’s NETWORK and the cachet that dripped even off of the junior producers. We discussed a wide array of subjects from the art of interviewing people, the problem of soccer in America, how and when he became enamored with hip-hop and the show and how he was approached to do the new SUNDAY TODAY show, amongst other subjects. (1:05)

TODAY: Breaking Down MTV’s VMAs, J-Lo & Marc Anthony, Rob Lowe’s Roast

08.29.2016 | By |

This TODAY show segment I did this morning on Kathie Lee & Hoda was absolutely cool. It was bicultural and it felt like an extension of me and my HIGHLY RELEVANT podcast, which you should listen to if you haven’t. Overall, it was just fun to talk about the Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony event which was such a Latino subject, since the concert was in Spanish, with salsa music and the song No Me Ames is a Spanish-language tune. Also, I enjoyed being able to discuss my dissatisfaction with MTV’s VMAs on my podcast, then break it down the morning after on national TV. Truly a blessing for a professional in the pop culture industry. Hope you enjoy it!

‘Highly Relevant’ Podcast Ep. 3: Latin Music, Horror Films, MTV’s VMAs

08.26.2016 | By |

I’m 3 weeks in doing the Highly Relevant podcast and it’s been a wondrous experience. I LOVE pop culture, but I detest the idea of having it be limited by a single language or culture. I want to talk to both sides of who I am – American and Latino. By tapping both sides, I get to discuss subjects that only enrich the conversations I’m having. There’s a global, international vibe to the dialogues I conduct and this third episode is a nice example of it. Read More

How Lousy Was ‘The Sea Of Trees’? Listen In To My Review In This Podcast

08.24.2016 | By |

I had a chance to visit Neil Rosen, Bill McCuddy and Bill Bregoli on their weekly podcast – Sitting Around Talking Movies – where we tackled Hands of Stone, (1:31) a boxing film about Roberto Duran that Neil only seemed to like (De Niro was terrible in it, also, we were off to the chariot races with the new and awful Ben Hur. And if that’s not enough we look at Blood Father starring Mel Gibson as well as the ensemble film The Intervention and the indie The Sea of Trees with Matthew McConaughey.
