The Cheryl Behind the Cheryl

cherylKnown to many as the long-suffering (ex)wife of funnyman Larry David, the man behind Seinfeld, on HBO’s hit series Curb Your Enthusiasm, Cheryl Hines is no stranger to patience and determination (necessary for putting up with Larry).

And determination is what led her to direct her first feature film,  Serious Moonlight, starring Meg Ryan and Timothy Hutton.  In an interview this week with Jamey and Jerry of Movie Geeks United, Cheryl spoke about her first-time experience behind the camera.

Asked what she learned from the experience, Cheryl said she “learned that [she's] tough on the inside…tougher than [she] thought [she] was,” adding that Seinfeld co-writer and frequent Curb director Larry Charles “was a spiritual guide” for her during the learning process.

Jamey of Movie Geeks couldn’t help but gush over his love for Curb, dubbing the show “the funniest show ever on TV” and asking Cheryl whether she watches it on Sunday nights like the rest of us.  Her answer might surprise you:

“I do watch it every Sunday night…I could get copies ahead of time, but I don’t. I like to watch it with my friends…because the show is improvised, I have a story outline, but its only…6 to 7 pages long.  I don’t know exactly what they’ve shot, and I don’t know until I watch the show.  I have such a good time watching Larry on Sunday nights, I’m telling you. It’s surreal…I’ll be seriousmoonlightwatching it, then I come on the screen and I’m like, ‘Oh my god, that’s right, I’m in the show!’”

So, the next time you’re on the couch in your pajamas on Sunday watching the side-splitting antics of Larry, Jeff, Richard, and Cheryl, know that the Cheryl behind the Cheryl is most likely doing the same thing, laughing along with you.

Check out Cheryl’s directorial debut, Serious Moonlight.

Tucker Carlson on Obama-Inauguration Controversy: ‘How you can decide you have exclusive rights to something that takes place on the National Mall?!’

Poor Barack Obama.

Just hours before he’s sworn in as America’s 44th commander-in-chief, another controversy comes along to taint his big day.

Bad media move?

Obama: Bad media move?

As The Washington Post reported Saturday, Obama is being criticized for selling exclusive TV rights to his inaugural events – for more than $5 million.

The deals cut by the incoming administration include $2.5 million from HBO to air last night’s all-star concert, featuring Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder and Beyoncé, at the Lincoln Memorial – which was attended by the president-elect, and vice president-elect Joe Biden.

So if you haven’t got HBO, you were out of luck.

Separately, Walt Disney Co. paid $2 million for two specials that will air, respectively, on its Disney Channel and ABC net:

Tonight’s children’s concert at Verizon Center, hosted by soon-to-be First Lady Michelle Obama and Biden’s wife, Jill Biden, and featuring Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers; and the “Neighborhood Inaugural Ball” tomorrow, at which Obama is expected to make his first official speech of the evening – and have his first dance with his wife as First Couple.tucker-carlson2

“These are public events taking place on public property. The Mall is not owned by the Inaugural Committee or this administration or any television network. It belongs to…all 308 million of us. So how can decide you have exclusive rights to something that takes place on the National Mall!” Tucker Carlson tells BlogTalkRadio’s Morning Media Menu today.

“There’s a principle at stake. You could make money – I don’t know – why don’t we name The White House?” adds the  former CNN and MSNBC anchor.

“We could call it ‘The Staples House’ or ‘The Home Depot House!’”
