Bobby! Bobby baby Bobby bubbie Bobby! 

We’re talking about the multi-talented Bobby Rivers who, according to The New York Times, is  “a master interviewer with a gift for impromptu banter.” Damn straight! He’s done it all - as a host on shows on VH-1 and Food Network, an ABC News movie critic and entertainment editor, even as a young movie trivia game-show winner! And he’s talked to everyone from Paul McCartney and Kirk Douglas, to Carlos Santana, Meryl Streep and Whoopi Goldberg to name just a few. He’s our all-time favorite movie nerd and regularly throws down some knowledge as a writer for Turner Classic Movies. Bobby knows all, and has the stories to prove it.

We are serious Valarie Pettiford fans! She’s what theatre folks call a "triple threat:" a brilliant Broadway actress, singer, and dancer (trained by the great Bob Fosse). She’s a Tony-nominee for her stage work and a kick-ass actress who can play an amazing range of characters - on dramas like BET's "The Family Business," and AMC's "A Discovery of Witches,” to her outrageous turn on the classic sitcom “Half and Half.” Valarie can do it all, and she’ll throw down some stories to prove it!
