New article: Pilot Scoop on “Mistresses”

In case you feel like you don’t have enough drama in your life, ABC is seeking to fill that void with Mistresses, an adaptation of the popular British series. The stateside cast includes Alyssa Milano and Lost’s Yunjin Kim as part of a group of girlfriends whose love lives are active and sexy, but very complicated. I gave the pilot a watch to bring you my verdict on Mistresses and whether you should set your DVR to record this soapy new series.

  • What it’s about: Savannah (Milano), April (Rochelle Aytes), Josslyn (Jes Macallan), and Karen (Kim) are a tight-knit group of friends, and they’re each in a different transition in their love lives. Married Savannah is trying to get pregnant, widowed April is trying to date again, therapist Karen is getting over the death of her lover, and Jes is single and loving it — and she intends to stay that way. Each woman’s situation is far from smooth sailing, though, and the pilot introduces you to a series of dilemmas, most of them related to infidelity, as you could guess from the title.
  • Where it works: Mistresses is addictive from the very first episode. It’s packed full of juicy story lines and sexy situations, like Savannah’s temptation to cheat on her husband with a sexy colleague, or a shocking revelation about April’s past, and I found myself dying to see what happens next.
  • Where it doesn’t: The cast still needs to find their chemistry. Aside from Savannah and Josslyn, who are sisters, it’s not clear why these women are friends and spend time together. It’s melodramatic to the extreme (though if you’re into that, dive right in).
  • You might like this show if: You miss shows like Lipstick Jungle and Desperate Housewives.
  • When it’s on: May on ABC.

“Mistresses” Promotional shoot #2 and old event additions!

Hello netters – and happy new year!! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful start on the new year. I, unfortunately, started it with a broken computer – hence the lack of updates here lately. I hope to be able to buy a new one sometime soon, but for now, I’m only able to update whenever I get to borrow a computer from a friend!

A while back, we tweeted that Alyssa and her “Mistresses” co-stars where doing their second promotional photoshoot for the TV series. We’ve finally been able to find one photo, which I’ve now added to our galleries for y’all to enjoy. Alyssa looks as fantastic as ever, and I’ll be on the lookout for additional photos the coming weeks!

I also came across a new-old event Alyssa attented back in 2006, The 132nd Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs. 4 photos have been added to the galleries, all in which Alyssa looks absolutely stunning! Enjoy the new photo additions…
