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. Basically, we each make our favorite cocktail recipes, then we chat! It’s our new favorite interview style. 😉

Scroll on to learn what Clinton Kelly is up to these days, his thoughts on fashion, how to make a Gin Raspberry Ginger Lime Rickey, and…

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”)!

The Housatonic Valley Association was founded in 1941 to protect the entire Housatonic River Watershed, stretching 2,000 square miles of land. To help fund this mighty endeavor, the HVA Auction for the Environment began 28 years ago. This fun event brings our generous community together to bid on incredible auction items, sip, nibble, schmooze, and in turn, help conserve this beautiful spot we call home!

If it’s been a while since you listened to the Crash Test Dummies, do yourself a favor and listen to “Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm” right now and enjoy the eargasm! Such a great song, and such a great band. That voice!! We recently caught up with Ellen Reid (and Brad Roberts joins in for some fun rapid-fire questions) to chat about their upcoming tour, the band’s first time back together in 17 years, and other random topics…

You can catch them at the Ridgefield Playhouse on December 5th, but first, enjoy our interview!
