Do you like ballet? Do you like Amy Sherman-Palladino's brain? Do you like liquor? Then you should check out my latest project! With three friends I made at the Gilmore girls reuinion at the ATX Festival, we have begun... A Bunheads podcast! We watch each episode of AS-P's cancelled-too-soon show and take a drink each time there is a Gilmore girls reference or an Amy Sherman-Palladino signature mention. And as we get drunker, we tend to find the most ridiculous and tenous co
As I mentioned last week, I had the pleasure of seeing Sutton Foster's latest musical, Violet, on Saturday. Based on the story The Ugliest Pilgrim by Doris Betts (author of Beasts of the Southern Wild), Violet is a story about a young woman's journey to be healed of her disfigurement. Along the way, she meets two men who will prove to mean more to her than she could ever imagine. Growth and healing come in forms that Violet never expected when she hopped on that Greyhound
Tomorrow, I will be breathing the same oxygen as Sutton Foster. I will be in the audience for her latest show, Violet. Not only is there the Bunheads connection, but it is produced in association with AS-P and Daniel Palladino! Interested in staring at Sutton seeing this show too? Go to the Roundabout's website for tix! #suttonfoster #bunheads #broadway
Amy Sherman-Palladino, in her ever-infinite awesomeness, had her girls from Bunheads do a "farewell dance" for their many (although not enough for ABCFamily) fans set to "Blues for Baby and Me" by Elton John.
BuzzFeed Exclusive: "Bunheads" Bids a Wonderful Farewell To Its Fans
So long, AS-P... we know we'll see you again very soon! Now where's that damned box of Kleenex?! #bunheads #amyshermanpalladino
We all know that Amazon/Hulu/Netflix shows are the wave of the future. I can see Bunheads making a comfy home on the internet.

How is it even possible that ABCFamily chose not to renew Bunheads for a second season... but The Secret Life of the American Teenager was allowed FIVE seasons. Let's just take a little peek at the quality of acting and writing that ABCFamily backed for five looooong years, shall we? In fact, ABCFamily recently put Melissa & Joey up for an Emmy this year. Yes... you read that right. The show that stars Joey Lawrence as the "manny" to Melissa Joan Hart's fictional children.
One of my favorite things about Bunheads is how they don't filter out the sounds of the dancer's feet on the floor during the dances. It's right there... Under the music. As a friend said: "it makes it pure".
And AS-P, yet again, shows her genius. #bunheads #amyshermanpalladino
What did everyone think about Liza Weil's reappearance as Truly's landlord/bitter sister, Milly?
Also, how much do you love the fact that AS-P is having Alex Borstein play multiple characters, just as she did on Gilmore girls?!
And some fun facts for you about Liza and Alex: Liza originally auditioned for the role of Rory. When they realized that she wasn't quite right for the part, they wrote the part of Paris Geller for her. Alex (also known as the voice of Lois Griffin
Tonight's Bunheads will star Miss Paris Geller (Liza Weil) as Truly's sister, Milly! ABCFamily at 9/8c! Be there or... don't be there. Whatever. All I know is that I will be there. #bunheads #amyshermanpalladino #lizaweil #parisgeller
Did anyone notice who the "You Want To/Wanna See Something" magician in this week's episode of Bunheads was? I actually didn't notice at first. It wasn't until I had looked away and recognized the unmistakable voice of... Michael DeLuise... also known as TJ! Yay! Our first Gilmore girls cameo of the winter season!
[Here's a fun fact for ya about Michael. He is Dom DeLuise's son. And his brother, Peter DeLuise, played TJ's brother in Gilmore girls... you know, the one w
