This past weekend, the TV Industry Advocacy Awards took place at the Sofitel in Beverly Hills, California. The event benefitted the Creative Coalition and honors television industry leaders impact on social causes. Among this years honorees were Debra Messing, Patricia Heaton, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Sela Ward, Bill Prady, Abigail Disney and Mädchen Amick. The presenters included Jenna Dewan, Lea Thompson and Diedrich Bader.

I had a chance to speak to a couple participants on the red carpet, who told me about their advocacy causes and current projects.




This event had a lot of interesting names being part of it. The celeb’s gathered to support each other’s advocacy causes. So all in good benefit for work done off-screen.

With the fast moving nature of some red carpets, I didn’t get a chance to speak with everyone. I did speak to honoree Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs) and presenter Diedrich Bader (American Housewife) about the event. They were both very complimentary of the event and causes. Diedrich had great things to say about Patricia Heaton.

Wendi seemed very happy with the cause she was supporting. She did mention a special Halloween episode of The Goldbergs coming up. Seems like she really loves working on the show and with that cast and crew.

The Celebrity Page #SeeHer event followed this event, so I didn’t get a chance to stay and check it out.

Once upon a time I watched Monday Night Raw on Monday nights. By coincidence I ended up hooked on The Bachelor/Bachelorette. That lead to a Blog at Chicago Now called Bachelor Universe and a podcast of the same name. Now, I've decided to spread my wings and create this site that can be your Bachelor/Bachelorette destination. Aside from The Bachelor, in my personal life I'm a bachelor myself. Looking for the love of my life (not handing out many roses). I'm an avid animal lover. Have a rabbit and two turtles. I'm a film critic and co-founder of the Chicago Independent Film Critics Circle (CIFCC). Lover of sports. Currently residing in the suburbs of Chicago (my hometown).
