One of the best parts of my podcasting experience so far has been bonding with other moms over their birth story. It’s like veterans coming back from the war and swapping battle stories. Each one is unique, hard-fought and nostalgic for mothers. So when my new friend (I can call her that right?) Christine Lakin stopped by I was so honored that she shared such a personal moment in her life.










Her daughter Georgia just turned one (today as a matter of fact!) and she was deep in party planning mode when we had this interview. She told me the surprising ways becoming a mom has changed her outlook on this industry and her career.

Christine has been a star since she was a kid and I immediately felt like I was talking to an old friend. Her birth story is raw, relatable and moving. Honestly it made me cry which I wasn’t expecting. A wonderful side effect of being a mom now is that I cry at the drop of a hat. Good times.


She’s grown up in the business and continues to work to this day. Most people would recognize her from her breakout role as “Al” in the 90’s sitcom Step by Step. She’s also been on a slew of TV shows like 7th Heaven, Veronica Mars and even created her own docu-series Lovin Lakin. And now she’s jumped into an exciting new project with fellow 90’s TV stars Jodie Sweetin and Beverley Mitchell called Hollywood Darlings.

She says the show is a somewhat exaggerated version of their real lives as friends. It’s lightly scripted and some of the situations are based on things that have really happened to them. You can expect to see some of your favorite TV stars from the 90’s to make appearances as well. Yay cameos! She explains how the show came about and how each of them fill their own natural archetypes that will be fun for viewers to watch.

Personally I’m pumped to see it for several reasons. First, I’m a fan of all of these women. Second, they’re all executive producing it because they wanted to be in the drivers’ seat of their career. Woo hoo lady power! And third, it just looks freakin’ funny. Watch the preview below and you’ll see what I mean. I’m a fan of anything that skewers Hollywood and the ridiculous world we all live in.

Mark your calendar to watch Hollywood Darlings on Pop Tv. It premieres April 12th!
