Professional Experience

I worked my way up from delivering the mail at a newspaper to writing, editing and blogging for national publications, and starting my own businesses: Geeky Splendor and TV Recappers' Delight. By letting fun, passion and bon vivant leanings be my guide, my assignments have included standing on the red carpet, riding in star-studded parades, visiting castles and sipping afternoon tea in London.

For thousands of New Yorkers, Bhairavi Desai is a reluctant star In more than a decade of journalism, never have I found an interview as hard to get as this one. I
If you have only a few minutes to interview a lightning bolt like director/writer/producer Mira Nair, where do you start? I thought the best place would be to ask the press junket question she never wants to answer again.
Ah, our beloved Sleepy Hollow is back. This show which embraces and gives a neck massage to every trope, kicks things off with a dark and stormy night.
Don't you just swoon over "Downton Abbey" on Sunday nights? I certainly do. In these Big Gulp, plastic days, it's wonderful to imagine a world so passionate about style and indulgence.
Rejoice Sleepyheads, after an agonizing wait, it was announced today that Sleepy Hollow has been renewed for a third season! Sleepy Hollow's survival was definitely helped along by a vocal, well-organized and passionate fandom. Here are just seven ways, the fans fought for their show.
The new season of an absurd TV show airs tonight. It's about some rando fame whore who juggles emotionally damaged women in a Hunger Games-style competition for his heart. I will not be watching that show. I will be watching Sleepy Hollow because it's more fun to swoon over Ichabod Crane.
Fans of FOX's supernatural series fear that co-star Nicole Beharie, who plays Lieutenant Abbie Mills has been sidelined. To get the show's attention, they've launched the Twitter campaign #KeepItBeharie. Here are ten reasons why we agree.
Naomi Campbell made a memorable appearance as golddigger Camilla on the FOX hip-hop soap opera Empire.
The Lyon family enters the woods to dig up a buried secret on the Empire episode "Poor Yorick."
Wealth, prominence and a glamorous lifestyle, the Crawley family looks like they have it all, but sources close to the aristocrats reveal that all is not as it seems for the Downton Abbey denizens.
Lady Edith writes in her diary: "Getting as far away from this oblivious lot at Downton Abbey would have been the wise move. All the staff seem to be plotting their escape:"

One of Hollywood's rising stars is Kal Penn, the 30-year-old New Jersey native who has captured attention for the hit stoner comedy, Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle.
Sometimes Downton Abbey speeds through storylines so fast that you can blink and miss them. Lady Rose's marriage happened awfully quick. Other times the show drags out a plot for so long, you just want it to end.
Any city known for fashion, food and flirting is for Sisters, right? But what if we've got big dreams and a (Quelle Horreur!) small bank account? Even pricey Paris can be enjoyed on a budget.
UnREAL's debut episode gets all the details of reality TV dating shows right, including the bland male prize. There are no roses to accept, but every lady is given a diamond bracelet, which she has to return when she gets kicked off. (Now, that's really unkind.)
Empire's Taraji P. Henson gets to do everything on FOX's hip-hop soap opera. She uttered a line that can take its place alongside SNL's "Nees more cowbell."

Although Fox's megahit Empire arrived a little late in the season to have a huge effect on the upcoming season's new shows, the networks did get a clue and continued the trend, led by ABC last season, of "diversifying"-or, as Shonda Rhimes calls it, "normalizing"-TV.

Since we're talking about one of my favorite things -- shoes on Madame Noire today. That got me thinking about one of my other favorite things in life -- men. And it makes me wonder how come so many women are so much smarter about picking the former.
Empire had it's most grown-up episode to date and brought more nuance to the characters and believable plots.
Jamie will do anything - and we mean anything - to protect Claire. Mrs. Fraser is no damsel in distress, she'll do anything - and we mean anything - to be with husband.This is not going to be a fun read. If you are a glutton for punishment, grab an adult beverage because you're going to need it.
After Liam and Ophelia leave for their new life together, Gemma slinks up to Marcus and notes that Ophelia was the girl of Marcus's dreams. Wait, what? Did we miss something? When was that established?

Just gonna put it out there and admit that I'm a Joss Whedon superfan. I consider Buffy the Vampire Slayer one of the greatest shows of all time and often suspect that the Sleepy writers have viewed a lot of Buffy themselves.
Ah, to be reclining on a beach chair right now with steel drums playing in the background and well-oiled cabana boys fetching us drinks.

It's the dramatic two-hour finale of Empire, with appearances by Patti LaBelle, Rita Ora, Snoop Dogg and Juicy J. Actually, it's a one-hour finale filled with an extra 60 minutes of flashbacks and filler. Take a drink whenever you see Lucious' do-rag, Bunkie's shooting or the infamous trash can.
Everyone, except Lucious, shows up to support Andre, who's at a posh clinic, recuperating from his breakdown. The psychiatrist makes a few comments, but it's Michelle White, the music therapist, who talks the most. That's because Michelle is portrayed by Jennifer Hudson.

By day you'll find Rodrigo Ducati working in the lab of Dr. Vern Schramm conducting research on malaria. By night, however, you might find the postdoctoral fellow on a dance floor. Earlier this year, he and his wife, Tathyana Franco, began leading samba classes as part of the Einstein Dance Club.
I overheard a conversation between two women on a train. One of the women was going on and on and on (and on and on and on) about a list of grievances:.... This chick was like the BP of drama.
When I look at Debbi, I just see a lovely, natural-looking face, which hasn't been sliced, diced, folded, spindled and mutilated into something frightening. I don't think you can get what she has from a doctor's office. (That said, if you can, sign me up!)
I love it when soaps take the time to get to know their subjects. Y&R's Heather and Colleen discovered they are both former New Yorkers and bonded over Big Apple culinary delights, citing Gray's Papaya as the best hot dog. (And it sure is, especially after a long night on the town.)
Oprah Winfrey got Naomi Campbell to agree to sign a "No Phone Throwing Zone" pledge. We notice there is all kinds of wiggle room in that agreement. Naomi said she wouldn't throw the phone, that is not to say she won't take her CrackBerry, grab you by the hair and beat you bloody with it. Be prepare

Brew a "cuppa" Earl's Grey, grab a scone and get ready for the debut of The Royals, E!'s first scripted drama. The show looks trashy and absurd, in other words, I'm all in! The reviews have mostly been scathing. (I think the British press is just being touchy.)
E! Entertainment debuted its first original scripted series, The Royals, which stars Liz Hurley as Queen Helena. It's a hot mess. We mean that we love.
FOX's megahit Empire brought its first season to a close last night with a two-part finale. It's no secret that the series has stirred up controversy, inspired fierce devotion, garnered record-breaking ratings and changed the face of television. The show also made an impact in surprising ways.
Every great woman's tale -- be it fact or fiction -- features a heroine navigating her way around a series of obstacles and then triumphing over them again and again. If you never do that, you'll never be a great woman.
It's only been two weeks, but I'm lounging on a deck chair aboard the SS Girlfriend. I'm sipping a fruity drink and I think I can hear the steel drums. The sudsy show has all kinds of teachable moments. Here are some of the ones I took from the most recent one I watched.
It's seven weeks earlier and I just can't wait to find out how the presumed murders are linked. Are you on the edge of your seats, too? There is a lot of movement in the flashbacks and it's arguably the most exciting episode so far.
The most memorable sex scene of the year --or possibly all time - was the priceless debacle on my favorite new show, Bravo's Girlfriends Guide to Divorce.
Okay, did anyone else get the feeling that Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce was poking fun at all those dopey Real Housewife trips from hell this week? That's how I'm reading it. Anyway, at least Abby got herself some Victor Webster with a side of Jake. Here's how she did it!
At Downton Abbey, it's better than 1913, but 1924 is still kind of a jackass.
Remember how the time that fire at Downton Abbey drove so much storyline? Oh, wait. That never happened.

She's got beauty, brains, well-timed barbs and a level of self-absorption that just won't quit. But what is Lady Mary really like? In this exclusive one-on-one, Mary sits down at her dressing table to dispel any notions that maybe she's really not that bad, after all.
On this week's Empire, we learn that an anonymous rose can make Cookie paranoid. When Cookie gets paranoid, Cookie makes bad life choices. When Cookie makes bad life choices, people get hurt. For the full story, check out our recap on The Root.
All I'm trying to say is that Cookie is already going to dinner in her lingerie. If she gets any racier ideas, it's gonna be uncomfortable for everyone real fast.
So many of fans chose Jo on Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce as the character you most wanted to hang out with that we wanted to find out more about actress Alanna Ubach. Now that we did, we love the actress as much as we love Jo.

The Royals, E!'s, first original scripted series, debuted last night. It's a sexy version of the British monarchy. Let's face it, aside from the entertaining Prince Harry, the actual royal family is dusty. The Royals presents the kind of ideal world we'd live in with Harry running the show.
Katrina served a purpose in the first season of Sleepy Hollow. Time traveler Ichabod needed an emotional tie to his past. Katrina served as a handy device. She also helped define Ichabod as a devoted romantic leading man.
