Since I was a little girl I’ve run to you
You’ve given me guidance and faith to do so much
I’ve always been inspired by your strength and never letting go
You raised all six of us with love and value
And your touch just makes all of us glow
Moms like mine are the fingerprints of time
And its times like today to let all you Mothers know
That your touch is the reason all of us grow.
Mother’s Day is a day to celebrate our Moms. It doesn’t matter how we make the day special. Just remember to tell her how much you love her. It’s a great excuse to spoil her more for the life she has given you. So here in Hollywood East. We reached out and asked you to tell us about your Superstar Mom.
“My mom is special to me every day of the year, not just because it’s Mothers Day,” the stylish blonde actress Kati Salowsky tells HEC. “She is my biggest supporter….and in this business, having a support system is huge. The world of acting is not an easy one to live in. Not everyone thinks that being an “actor” is a smart choice…lets face it, it’s not. It’s not a safe job by any means.
My mother knows this and it has led to many discussions/arguments about where my future is headed. She is my voice of reason. However, she sees that acting is what I want to do, and she wants me to be happy doing what I love. She is my cheerleader when I get auditions and land roles as well as my comfort pillow when I don’t. She picks me up, brushes me off, and tells me to keep going. I owe her everything for believing in me. No words express how appreciative I am of all that she selflessly sacrifices for me. The best I can come up with is, “I love you mom!”
“It’s funny, its pretty simple for me,” the pretty actress Vanessa Leigh tells us. “I tell my mother I love her every single day. Whether text or call or write. Just so that she never forgets how much I appreciate her and what a wonderful, caring and selfless person I think she is.”
“My Mom worked at St Elizabeth’s ER, overnight, when we were kids,” the handsome Musician, Randy Vera tells us. “She would be back just in time to help me get to school. I had my share of trouble. Mom stuck by me.
She never complained, even through her cancer treatment – it was “aren’t we lucky to live in Boston with the best hospitals in the world” – “why me” never crossed her mind. This Mother’s day, I made a video of her grand kids impersonating her. “Randall, your hair looks like a derelict! When you get a real job you will need short hair. Etc Etc” she is the rock of my life.”
Actor Andrew Cromartie tells us, “Well, my mom lives in Little Rock, Arkansas, so me and my sister mail her boxes and boxes of L.A. Burdicks gourmet chocolate!” That’s sweet.
TTN HD Production Live Online.com, Jon R tells us, “So sad that I can’t be with my mom for Mother’s Day because she lives in NY but I got to see her last weekend. It was so nice to spend some quality time with her! I found a fun present for her this year: a solar-powered light-up flower for the front of the house to match up with my dad’s tree face! I’m going to make sure I call her as well and send her a card with a nice message in it. It makes me sad that I can’t be there with her but I’m going to have a baby girl in three months, so I’ll have a new mother to look after soon!” Congrats Jon!
“My mother and I are pretty much best friends,” the young actress Courtney Devon Hughes tells us. “Every Thursday we spend the whole day together. On Mother’s Day I make her breakfast and bring her lilacs because they are her favorite flowers. She never asks for much so I usually give her much more presents than she expects.”
“Well, Mothers day in my house is pretty laid back,” super sweet Actress Melissa McMeekin tells us. “It pretty much is up to me and whatever I want to do, which other than sleep, the answer to that changes every year. But I always get to sleep and have breakfast in bed. And my mom and I usually end the day by seeing a movie.
“This year, I will be celebrating my 9th Mother’s Day on the set of the feature film “GRACE”, it’s the first time I will not be with my sweet little girls and my Mom on Mother’s Day,” the lovely Erica McDermott tells us.
“As usual, my family will be enjoying brunch together… only this year it will be a day earlier. Lucky for me, I have the most supportive family all year long…. what more could a Mom ask for?”
Mass Movie Maven, Chris Palermo tells us, “I’ll cook for my mom on Mother’s Day, get her lilacs(her favorite)and get her a Barbara Streistand-related gift. She’s a Babs freak!” ‘You are the wind beneath her wings’ Chris!
“You got one mother in life and even though sometimes you drive each other crazy,”Irish Whisper Adriano Masciarelli tells us. “If it wasn’t for mamma duke, I wouldn’t be here doing my thing in life. I’m going to take her out to dinner with my brother and sister.”
Bi-Coastal Comedian Tommy Natoli tells us, “I always send her a Mothers Day card no matter where I am around Mothers Day. Not just some generic card something I know will make her laugh or cry. That’s my Mother’s Day tradition. As for throughout the year…I think what makes my Mom happy is when I tell her about how something she taught me didn’t go unnoticed, and that I actually was listening and learning from her as I grew up. I make her feel special by letting her know she did a great job raising me. I heart my mom!”
Hollywood East Moms are SUPERSTARS! We love you. Life is busy but our Moms are always on the right pace. Thanks for being our biggest fans! Mom you rock!
On Thursday night’s episode of “Grey’s Anatomy,” Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, settled upon the decision to leave Seattle Grace Hospital and move to Boston with her husband, Derek Shephard. Their characters each having been offered a lucrative and enviable position at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, respectively. Though Grey waffles about the decision, desiring to stay at Seattle Grace, Shepard pushes her to choose Boston as the opportunity being offered to him at HMS. In real life, both Ellen Pompeo and her real life husband, music producer Chris Ivery, are from the Boston area. Pompeo is from Everett, and Ivery is from Cambridge, and grew up 10 miles from each other, but didn’t meet until they both arrived in Los Angeles. Patrick Dempsey, Pompeo’s on-screen hubby, is no stranger to the east coast himself. The dark-haired hunk was born in Lewiston, Maine, and grew up in Buckfield. While it remains to be seen what the decisions of the Seattle Grace residents will have on the make up of the show, in the cliffhanger leading up to the May 17th season finale, a plane carrying a majority of the doctors crashes in the woods, with the creator of the series, Shonda Rhimes, stating that a recurring character will be killed off.
Rhimes other successful series, the new mid-season replacement, “Scandal,” was just announced to be renewed for a second season, after pulling as good as or slightly better than the audience numbers “Private Practice” was pulling in in the same spot, at 10 p.m., after “Grey’s.” Debuting on April 5th, the show stars Kerry Washington as Olivia Pope, a brash-talking, cunning, collected, head honcho of a Washington D.C. Based crisis management firm. Over the course of the seven episodes that have aired, we have learned that Pope used to work for the president, and had an affair with him. Washington formerly had a recurring role on the David E. Kelley series, “Boston Legal.” The president happens to be played by Tony Goldwyn, who is most recognized for his performance as the traitorous Carl Bruner in the movie Ghost. Goldwyn attended Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts, where he received his B.F.A. The series also co-stars Kate Burton as the vice president, who is more recognizable for her portrayals of Ellis Grey, Meredith’s mother, on “Grey’s Anatomy.” Burton studied at Yale University School of Drama, from which she graduated in 1983. In 2007, Burton was given an honorary doctorate from Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
The season finale of “Scandal” will also air on May 17th.
