ABC’s Black-ish Star Anthony Anderson sits down with Valerie Greenberg

Anthony Anderson is a down to earth dad on and off camera.  I had the pleasure of sitting down with the star of ABC’s new hit comedy series”Black-ish” last week where Anthony unveiled the #SwifferSDads campaign video and was joined by a handful of dad’s that are all about household chores.  Anderson opened up about some very personal experiences and challenges he faced as a young comedian and even gave us some insight as to what we can expect for the upcoming season finale.  Check it out here and remember youvebeenVALidated!

Dancing With The Stars Stand Out Moments

It’s the 10th anniversary of “Dancing With The Stars”  and I want to hear what you enjoyed most about the premiere!  For me first and foremost it would have to be the surprise of having Derek Hough back with his Golden Girl partner Nastia Liukin, who also happens to be an incredible friend and it’s no secret that is who I am routing for :):) I also enjoyed watching fellow Florida Gator and TV Host Erin Andrews poke fun at The Bachelor’s Chris Soules, calling him out for constantly kissing as well as getting tons of Monday night screen time.  Of course watching Noah Galloway, an Iraq war veteran who lost both an arm and a leg is truly powerful and inspirational!
