Ariana Grande’s Brother Frankie Spills on the Grande Family’s Christmas Traditions

-By JARVIS!

I have loved Frankie James Grande ever since I discovered his amazing YouTube channel back when I was in college! He is so energetic and full of life, which automatically makes him my spirit animal and inspiration. Thank God I ran into him today in the VH1 elevators, because he has been BLOWING UP lately. We all know his sister Ariana Grande‘s new single, “Santa Tell Me” and I even got him to dish on the Grande’s family Christmas!

I usually get extremely nervous when I meet a celebrity like Frankie, but I spent so much time watching him on the Big Brother live feed I feel like he’d be down to Earth and totally approachable — which he was! It wasn’t like we were strangers, but best friends reuniting on an elevator! OMG! Could you imagine? ME? Best friends with Frankie James Grande??? I’d die!

Frankie isn’t just a TV star, he also dominates the Broadway stage. He’s currently starring as Franz in Rock of Ages. He even showed me a few signature moves from the show, and gave me a “Shine Bright like a Frankie” elevator makeover by blessing me with eye glitter. My mind is literally blown now that I’ve met my absolute favorite.

LeBron James & Wife Welcome Third Child: Zhuri

LeBron James & Wife Welcome Third Child: Zhuri

Congratulations are in order for LeBron James and Savannah Brinson.

The NBA star, 29, and his wife, 28, have welcomed their third child – a daughter named Zhuri –  Us Weekly reports.

The baby girl joins big brothers LeBron James Jr., 10, and Bryce Maximus, 7.

The high school sweethearts – who were wed in September 2013 – revealed their baby’s gender and name during a Greece babymoon in August.

“Zhuri hurry up and get here so your daddy and 2 brothers can annoy you! Lol,” James wrote via Instagram.

James opened up about fatherhood during a September interview on CNN’s Unguarded with Rachel Nichols.

“There is no booklet where no one can tell you on how to raise your kids. And you know, every single day is always challenging. And for my kids even more challenging, because their dad is famous,” the NBA star shared.

He added: “But I feel like the morals and the goals and the things that I teach them I just want to lay the path for them and let them, at the end of the day, make their own decisions. And hopefully, the — the way that I’ve been teaching them will, when they get to a fork in the road, they will know what’s right, and not go left.”

Dana Delany Wanted Marcia Cross As a Love Interest and More You Didn’t Know About Desperate…

Dana Delany Wanted Marcia Cross As a Love Interest and More You Didn’t Know About Desperate...

If you miss hearing this every Sunday night before being engulfed in all the scandalous drama of Wisteria Lane, join the club. This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the Desperate Housewives premiere, one of the sexiest, most iconic guilty pleasures in TV history. VH1 reminisced with America’s dream husband Mike Delfino (James Denton) and lovable loon Katherine Mayfair (Dana Delany) about the series and what made it so juicy, on and off set.

Delany (Hand of God, The Comedians) and Denton reveal who was the biggest ladies’ man on set (was it Jesse Metcalfe or Josh Henderson?) and scenes they shot that were too naughty to air. It’s clear they just as much fun shooting with the cast — Eva Longoria, Teri Hatcher, Felicity Huffman and Marcia Cross — as we did watching. Until our prayers of a Desperate Housewives reboot are answered, here are some things about the beloved series that you didn’t know.

1. Bree and Katherine were possible love interests… sort of.

Well, in Delany’s mind anyway. The actress tells VH1 another scenario she had dreamed up for Katherine’s happily ever after: “I really thought that Bree and Katherine should be together. I really did. I felt like they were two sides of the same coin and there was a lot of shipping going on about those two and I think it would of worked. I think it would of been one of those relationships with women in their older years going ‘Oh it was you all along!’ Why not?”

2. James Denton actually made Teri Hatcher blush after the iconic bush scene.

When we saw the naked, accident-prone Susan (Hatcher) fall into the bushes only to be caught by her love interest Mike (Denton), we were immediately hooked. Denton tells us the episode three scene holds a special place in his heart as well: “Believe it or not, that’s not why it was my favorite episode. Susan and I walked across the street and it was their first date and she says: ‘Thanks for being such a gentleman, when I was outside naked you know’ and I say something like, ‘You know I had to be honest I did take a peek and for what it’s worth WOW’ and walked away and she just literally blushed in the scene. It was really, really great.”

3. Felicity Huffman and Marc Cherry threw the best parties. 

What did the cast do when they weren’t on their hectic shooting schedules? Delany gives us the scoop: “I’ve gone to Felicity’s house a few times to play charades. She really is a killer charades person — really good at it! Mark is a great entertainer. He has crazy, good parties at his house!”

4. An (almost) nude sex scene with Mike and Katherine didn’t make it to air.

Denton and Delany both make it clear that their respect for one another and real life chemistry is what made shooting their short-lived romance so enjoyable. Almost a little too much, according to Denton:

Dana and I were in Bree’s kitchen completely doing it on the kitchen counter and we shot it almost completely naked — like, with very, very little clothes on — because they wanted it to look like we had nothing on. Those scenes are so important because it depends who you do it with and how comfortable you are with each other. We had so much fun shooting it — it was really, really hot and great and everybody loved it, and it was just too much for ABC. It was supposed to be black and white in the security camera, you know kind of grainy. They didn’t use it, which was really a bummer. I thought they might find a way to make it blurry enough to use, but they never did. That would have certainly gotten a lot of reaction because we didn’t do a whole lot of that.

5. The show was mistaken for a reality series at first.

Even before The Real Housewives existed, Denton had mistaken the series for a reality show: “I didn’t even read it, I let it sit on my desk for a week and finally my manager was like, ‘Read it.‘” Ever since, The Real Housewives franchise has BLOWN up. With so many commonalities between his 2004 scripted series and the Bravo reality stalwart (which began in 2006), it’s likely some of their on-screen antics may have been inspired by Cherry’s series. Delany agrees:

I’m amazed that Marc doesn’t get some royalties for that! Desperate Housewives started that whole industry which is all over the world now. What cracks me up is the way the people dress and look because that is kind of what we did on our show! It was very colorful you know and a lot of big hair and [being] very conscious of your makeup and your figure and high heels. I mean, I’ve never worn such high heels before I was on [the show] and I was the housewife that didn’t really get that dressed up except on occasion, but yeah you realize, wow this is a look that has been set now for the world which you know, for better or for worse. I get that Bree character completely. If you’re from Connecticut, you understand! I mean, I know a lot of women like that.
