Julia Louis-Dreyfus changed his life forever.

Do you remember actor Diedrich Bader on Monk? Or Psych? Or CSI?

Probably not.

Because it wasn't until he met Julia Louis-Dreyfus that people starting taking him seriously.

Hear the story on this week's Really Famous podcast episode #29.

He also talks about Better Things, Pamela Adlon and Louis CK.

On the Red Carpet ... a behind-the-scenes look

I went behind the scenes at the American Heart Association's Go Red for Women Red Dress Collection 2018 ... and it was a blast!

The fashion was phenomenal and the backstage action was a lot of fun. Here are photos and video clips just for you...

About my chat with Tim Gunn ... and Tim Daly ... Dany Aiello ... Daymond John ... Aida Turturro ...

You're my co-pilot and it's time to land this baby.

We need to spread the word so more people find out about Really Famous. It'll lead to good, good things -- I promise.

A little website called BuzzFeed (!!!) is doing a piece on under-the-radar podcasts to listen to in 2018 and I want Really Famous to make the list...don't you?

Please share your fabulous opinion with the folks at BuzzFeed right here.


Thank you, co-pilot!!

Thumbs Up for Time's Up

I'm not usually an awards show fan. It all seems so superficial and fake.


But last night I was rapt by the Golden Globes. Rapt!

Why? Because of the phenomenal women and their fierce commitment to shifting the imbalance of power in Hollywood and beyond.

On the red carpet alone, I was super impressed by tell-it-like-it-is comments by Debra Messing, Sarah Jessica Parker, Viola Davis and more. (Check out this great piece by Inkoo Kang in The Hollywood Reporter. It says it all.)

Many women brought activists as their plus-ones, like Emma Watson (activist Marai Larasi), Michelle Williams (#MeToo founder Tarana Burke) and Meryl Streep (Ai-Jen Poo, director of the National Domestic Workers Alliance). Fabulous!


When the doors closed and the show started, the vibe continued. So many women stood up and spoke their truth. Like Natalie Portman, Frances McDormand and of course, Oprah.


And hat's off to acknowledging the stellar TV series, films and roles by women -- like Big Little Lies, The Handmaid's Tale and Lady Bird.


To Time's Up and all the women who created, developed and support it, brava!

PS Yay, Aziz Ansari!!! and Sterling K. Brown!

George Clooney isn't the only one who launched a career with The Facts of Life.

It's the spectacular Kim Fields!

Because, hey, George Clooney isn't the only one who launched a career after appearing on The Facts of Life


You know Kim, of course, right?

Head to Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle PlayiHeartRadioTuneIn to listen right now. Or listen right here on Really Famous.

Kim of course, is Tootie from The Facts of Life ... and Regine from Living Single. She also "played" herself on a couple of today's biggest reality TV shows: Real Housewives of Atlanta and Dancing with the Stars.

In this interview, she opens up about her ups and downs -- in life and in Hollywood. She shares oodles of fun stories about being a child actor, kissing another child actor, being besties with a huge star, and walking around Disneyland with Michael Jackson.

Tell me what you think after you listen. I'd love to know!
