Episode 014: A La Carte With Tracy Wells Tofte
These babies you see before you scarfing down cheesecake are Christy and one of her oldest and dearest friends,Tracy Tofte. You may know her better asTracy Wellsfrom when she played teenage daughter Heather Owens on“Mr. Belvedere”during the sitcom’s six-year run in the ’80s. Tracy and Christy have known each other since the seventh grade, having grown up together in Woodland Hills, Calif. But Christy had the pleasure of rediscovering her all over again during this Breakfast All Day A La Carte interview. We covered a ton of ground, including what it was like spending her formative years on television; theMichael JacksonPepsi commercial she danced in; famous co-stars includingRicky Schroder,Kirk CameronandAlfonso Ribeiro; her on-screen makeout with a pre-HulkMark Ruffalo; and making the tough transition from child stardom to adulthood. We also had to discuss the documentary“Leaving Neverland,”since she was so obsessed with Jackson when we were kids. And we trade plenty of embarrassing stories about each other. Here’s evidence we both turned out just fine. We hope you enjoy listening to this conversation as much as we enjoyed recording it.
Episode 013: Triple Frontier, Ash Is Purest White, The Aftermath, Sorry Angel, College Admissions Scandal
It's a sampler platter of movies this week on Breakfast All Day, from indies to foreign films, great stuff to middling stuff. A very stuffy Alonsoovercomes his allergies to join Christy in reviews of the all-star Netflix action thriller "Triple Frontier,"the subtly powerful Chinese drama "Ash Is Purest White" (with a tour de force performance from Zhao Tao, above), the dull and safe post-World War II romance "The Aftermath" and the French film "Sorry Angel,"about two men who fall in love in the midst of the AIDS epidemic. We also have a bit of movie news: the fallout from the college admissions scandal and how it's hurt Lori Loughlin's career (because any excuse to discuss Hallmark Channel movies is good for Alonso) and the announcement that James Gunn will once again direct the third "Guardians of the Galaxy."
Episode 012: A La Carte With The Artist Shag
Limited Edition Serigraph Print" /> This week, we're launching a little side podcast we've wanted to do for a while now. It's called Breakfast All Day: A La Carte.We'll be interviewing people who work in film or entertainment in some way -- sometimes just Christy, sometimes with the other Breakfast All Day guys joining us at the table. We're so excited to begin this series with Josh Agle, better known as the artist Shag. He's a lovely and immensely creative guy who draws from his deep love of movies, television and mid-century modern design to create chic and colorful paintings with a clever, humorous twist. Christy andMattare both big fans of his work, so we were thrilled that he wanted to join us to talk about his influences and career. Hope you enjoy, and we can't wait to bring you more of these.
