If you know us (and have seen any of our last 5 years of Halloween costumes), you know that we’re Hall & Oates fans. So when John Oates sent out his digital Christmas card (ok, we’re on his fan mailing list) where he recorded Mel Tormé’s classic “The Christmas Song”, we decided to reach out and request a call to chat about the song, Christmas traditions, and pandemics.

We had no idea what to expect when we were invited to a sneak preview of the 2019 This Old House Idea House in New Canaan. Afterward, our drive home was filled with excited talk of doorstops, aromatherapy showers, wallpaper, and who knew you could fall in love with a bathroom sink?

Kimberley Locke is the diva on DABL’s new show Doctor & the Diva. She’s also our friend, so we had her over to Lora’s house to eat good food (thanks Kimberley and Lora’s hubby Michael), drink wine, and chat. We asked what it means to be a diva, about the journey to getting her own show, what a day on the set looks like, and more!

Friends for years on Instagram, and fans forever (we’ve watched every episode of What Not to Wear), we were ridiculously happy when Clinton Kelly agreed to have us over to his Litchfield Hills home for a cocktail exchange.

Lt. Governor Susan Bysiewicz is our #wcw this month. In case you didn’t know, she’s our state’s 89th and current Lieutenant Governor and previously served as the 72nd Secretary of the State of Connecticut from 1999 to 2011.

We thought @lgsusanb might like to take a break from political talk and allow us a “getting to know you” interview instead…and she was more than happy to oblige. We enjoyed every moment of our little jaunt to the State Capitol Building to meet Susan Bysiewicz. Here’s our chat!

Kool & the Gang are coming to the Ridgefield Playhouse this Valentine’s Day to celebrate love and good times! We asked the Gang’s Ronald Bell for the low-down on pre-show rituals, romantic gestures, and who’s the koolest of them all (we think he’s pretty high on the koolness factor – he’s written and produced some of the band’s hit songs like “Celebration”, “Cherish” and “Jungle Boogie”)!
