Eric Braeden and Kara FUNNY SELFIE.JPG

Eric Braeden has one of the most recognized faces around the globe, according to the Nielsen company. Why?

It's not just from Titanic or Colossus or Rat Patrol.

People EVERYWHERE are addicted to his soap opera, The Young and the Restless - even if they don’t admit it! - and Victor Newman, his character, is a fan favorite.

Eric has been approached by HUGE stars who adore him on TV, like Mohammed Ali, Aretha Franklin and Nancy Reagan.

But yes, even if you don’t watch Y&R, you know Eric Braeden from Titanic, How I Met Your Mother, The Rat Patrol, Mission Impossible and Mary Tyler Moore.

In this interview, Eric talks about IT ALL, including how fame almost ruined him - and why he once HATED his Y&R gig.

Up next: Comedian Iris Bahr

Do you watch Curb Your Enthusiasm? I admit -- I don't. Yet I was a ginormous Seinfeld fan. (What's up with that? Please share your thoughts in the comments below.)

Regardless, it's back after a super-long hiatus and I chatted with one of the show's recurring guests, comedian/actress/writer Iris Bahr.

On the next episode of Really Famous, Iris shares insights on the show, like how she got together with comedian and co-star JB Smoove to co-write a new book. She also talks about a TV series she did for Shark Tank investor Mark Cuban.

We also get personal and she shares funny takes on her life as a single-and-actively-dating mom. And she has thoughts on Hollywood, women and appearance.

Stay tuned...it'll be available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, TuneIn, iHeartRadio and other podcast apps later this week!

Coming to New York for Thanksgiving?

If you're visiting New York for the long weekend, check out these cool things:

This hip, swanky hotel is where we record oodles of Really Famous podcast episodes. You may not get access to the Empire Suite, which is our official "studio," but you can feel the upscale, energetic vibe of the hotel by hanging out at the super-stylish Thread Bar for #5to9 drinks and #barrituals. 218 W. 35th Street, New York, NY

  • Da Vinci and Michelangelo

The Metropolitan Museum of Art, where I went this past Sunday (and where Really Famous guest Tim Gunn loves to go), has three fabulous new exhibits spotlighting Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo and Auguste Rodin.

You can also see a performance celebrating the first two artists in a national touring show that's visiting New York this weekend, called Da Vinci & Michelangelo: The Titans Experience, at the Triad Theater. 158 W. 72nd Street, New York, NY 10023

Sneak peek! Who's my next guest?

Dee Wallace and Kara Mayer Robinson.JPG

Do you recognize her? It's actress Dee Wallace, who played Elliot's mom on ET. That's right, ET! I LOVE this movie and I just KNEW I'd like her in real life too.

I was counting the days leading up to this interview. Not only because I adore her but because it was part of my recording stint in Los Angeles. I flew from New York to LA in August to chat with celebs who live on the west coast. It was a fab trip and I honestly can't wait to do another round soon.

But enough about me! You want to know about Dee, right?

She's an OPEN BOOK. She opens up big time about her family, her dad's alcoholism, her husband's sudden death, raising her daughter. And she tells huge stories about her acting career, including scoop about ET, Steven Spielberg, Harrison Ford, Cujo, and making her way from Kansas to New York to Hollywood.

PLUS she's a "spiritual healer" who practices something called "channeling." Can't wait for you to hear all about it -- NEXT WEEK!!
