A verdade sobre o marido de Rachael Ray finalmente revelada

Você não pode encontrar um chef de TV muito mais encantador do que Rachael Ray. Ela é inteligente, sorridente, gentil com seus fãs (e com os cachorros!) E tem um senso de humor autodepreciativo e uma vibração de "mulher comum" que a torna verdadeiramente identificável. Ela é uma das personalidades mais simpáticas da televisão hoje, e se tornou ainda mais simpática quando se tornou metade de um dos casais mais fofos de todos os tempos.

Ray é casado com John Cusimano há 14 anos - uma vida inteira para aqueles que estão no centro das atenções. Ele visitou seu talk show várias vezes e conquistou os corações de todos os seus fãs, mas ele ainda é um mistério. Quem é o marido de Rachael Ray, John Cusimano, e o que os torna a combinação perfeita? Investigamos sua história para descobrir tudo sobre o que o motiva - e quais segredos ele pode ter a esconder.


Gina Torres se considera um desabrochar tarde, e ela está perfeitamente bem com isso. A atriz de "Suits", que agora estrela um spinoff chamado "Pearson", conversou com TODAY Style sobre virar "50 bem, 50 fabuloso" e porque ela ama seus lábios grandes depois de ser provocada por eles quando criança.

Demorei um pouco para amar meus lábios porque crescendo com esse conjunto de refrigeradores de sopa, como os chamávamos, recebi muito, muito rebatida. As crianças eram impiedosas. Eles me provocavam constantemente. Eu tive que crescer em meus lábios. Eles ocupavam cerca de 50% do meu rosto quando eu era muito jovem e, por isso, ficava muito constrangido com eles.

Mas então, à medida que fui crescendo, não conseguia imaginar meu rosto sem eles. Eles são um reflexo dos lábios do meu pai. Na verdade, eles são a combinação perfeita dos lábios dos meus pais. Eu tenho o velho arco da minha mãe em cima e a plenitude do meu pai. Penso neles toda vez que me olho no espelho.

E, francamente, eu ri por último porque em algum lugar no colégio o "beicinho de Paris" entrou na moda. E todos nós sabíamos que o "beicinho de Paris" era apenas um eufemismo para belos lábios afro-americanos, afro-latinos que eram cheios e cheios de vida e emolduravam o rosto de uma maneira linda, linda. E assim meus lábios se tornaram a inveja da escola e se tornaram a inveja de uma cidade. E agora eles são apenas uma parte de quem eu sou.

Minha filha tem uma versão dos meus lábios. Ela também é a combinação linda e perfeita de seu pai e sua mãe. A coisa mais importante que posso ensinar a minha filha sobre autoconfiança e beleza é que tudo começa por dentro. Tudo começa com amor próprio. Tudo começa com auto-aceitação. E quando você chega a esse ponto, é imparável. Porque o mundo vê o que você vê quando você o aceita em si mesmo.

Ser nova-iorquino incutiu em mim uma espécie de tenacidade que não acho que teria se tivesse nascido em outro lugar. Você responde com rapidez. Existe um tipo de energia cinética que é parte integrante desta cidade com a qual você cresceu.

O melhor conselho que já recebi foi quando estava trabalhando em uma padaria no Upper West Side, no colégio, e era meu último ano, e eu só queria sair e fazer isso. E este outro ator - um ator que trabalhava regularmente - entrou e eu o reconheci porque eu meio que tinha uma queda por ele.

E então ele disse: "Sabe, você vai atingir o seu ponto ideal mais tarde. Há uma maturidade para você que não fará sentido por alguns anos, então aguente firme." Aqui estou. Ele estava certo. Não achei que fosse demorar tanto, mas ele estava certo.

Eu diria ao meu eu mais jovem para segurar firme. Vai ficar melhor e o mundo vai alcançá-lo.

Eu desabrochei tarde. Eu absolutamente me consideraria um desabrochar tarde. E isso é tudo sobre aceitação. Trata-se apenas de entender um pouco mais sobre como o mundo funciona e sua parte nele e abraçá-lo.

Acabei de fazer 50 anos e, como diria minha namorada, estou "bem nos 50". Então, sim, eu amo aqueles 50 ótimos, 50 fabulosos. É realmente o melhor aniversário que já tive. Estou tão no meu corpo, tão bem e, graças a Deus, saudável e animada com o que vem por aí. Mais do que nunca, sinto que estou preparado para enfrentar o que está por vir.

Estou ansioso por mais, apenas mais. Não porque preciso, mas porque sempre tem mais, certo?

Como disse a Emily Sher de HOJE. Esta história foi editada e condensada para maior clareza.

& # 8216Upon Her Lips: Pure Feels & # 8217 review

A NQV Media volta sua atenção para a experiência lésbica.

Até agora, a produção da NQV Media tem se concentrado principalmente na experiência gay masculina por meio de coleções de curtas como ‘The Boys’ e ‘The Male Gaze’. Para a nova série ‘Upon Her Lips’, eles estão mudando as coisas e se concentrando na experiência lésbica. A primeira parcela é ‘Upon Her Lips: Pure Feels’, que reúne cinco curtas de Israel, Alemanha, Suécia, França e Brasil para dar uma ideia de como é ser lésbica nos dias modernos.

‘Upon Her Lips: Pure Feels’ começa com ‘Fake It’, do cineasta israelense Tzurit Hartzion, que conta a história de uma mulher que decide criar um projeto de fotografia sobre seu relacionamento anterior. Puxando relutantemente sua ex-namorada para o meio disso, o projeto reacende uma paixão ardente entre as duas mulheres, mas também as lembra por que decidiram que não poderiam mais ficar juntas. Os curtos zunindo em um ritmo ventoso e é um começo envolvente.

O tom muda significativamente para o conto de amadurecimento da cineasta alemã Esther Bialas, "Tumbling Birds. Concentrando-se na jovem Svenja, Bialas analisa o que a pressão dos colegas e o bullying podem levar uma criança a fazer. Svenja é intimidada pelos garotos populares que a chamam de "lésbica" e ela encontra um amigo improvável no zelador da escola, que a apresenta aos pombos. Quando o chefe da gangue popular mostra interesse em Svenja, ela fará de tudo para se encaixar e seu comportamento rapidamente entra em um ciclo destrutivo.

A cineasta francesa Marie Jardillier destaca a atuação em seu curta "Entre as Sereias". No entanto, não é uma história típica de revelação, já que a personagem central Marion simplesmente se apaixonou por uma mulher, algo que parece tê-la surpreendido um pouco também. Ao se reunir com seus amigos, ela cria coragem para contar a eles, mas não tem ideia de como eles podem reagir. É uma exploração cativante de como até mesmo os amigos mais próximos podem manter segredos um do outro e como você sempre pode ficar surpreso, não importa o quão bem você pensa que conhece alguém.

‘Everything In Between’ do cineasta sueco Rushema Vinberg é o mais ousado dos curtas aqui. Contado quase em completo silêncio, ele narra uma experiência entre duas mulheres que se sentem intensamente atraídas uma pela outra. Não aprendemos nada sobre as mulheres além do que vemos acontecer e às vezes parece que você é um voyeur, secretamente assistindo a uma troca intensamente privada.

O último curta da coleção é ‘Piscina’, do cineasta brasileiro Leandro Goddinho, que mostra uma jovem tentando entender o passado da avó. Sua busca a leva a uma velha chamada Marlene que é uma reclusa, mas guarda memórias dentro de uma piscina vazia. Enquanto as duas mulheres conversam, as histórias de Marlene mostram a avó da mulher sob uma nova luz e revelam uma luta que ela nunca conheceu. Este curta é um lembrete de como as gerações anteriores eram muito mais difíceis quando se tratava de ser gay e faz você se sentir feliz por termos feito o progresso que fizemos.


Você não viveu até experimentar os biscoitos de creme azedo de três ingredientes da minha mãe

Crescendo no Sul, existem protocolos tácitos que acontecem em muitas cozinhas em todos os lugares, como nunca, nunca, nunca colocar sua frigideira de ferro fundido na máquina de lavar louça e que a maioria das refeições não são verdadeiramente completas, a menos que haja alguma forma de um biscoito, pedaço de pão de milho ou pão de fermento no prato. Isso é como comer panquecas sem calda ou deixar o sal fora da couve. & # XA0

Em nossa casa, as coisas estavam agitadas, com crianças e cachorros suficientes para manter minha mãe mais do que ocupada. Portanto, ao escolher entre fazer biscoitos caseiros de leitelho notoriamente exigentes ou sua receita de biscoitos de creme azedo que só exigia três ingredientes e uma lata de muffin, ela foi inteligente. Biscoitos de creme azedo para acompanhar o jantar.

Eles não exigem nenhuma colher de chá disso ou um pouco daquilo, apenas três coisas que ela já tinha na cozinha. Sem enrolar ou resfriar, basta misturar e assar. Embora simples na concepção e nada particularmente lindo na aparência, não se engane: essas mordidas incrivelmente úmidas e macias do céu vão fazer você babar. Cada mordida literalmente derrete em sua boca com sabor cremoso e amanteigado. & # XA0

Alguns podem estar familiarizados com biscoitos de creme azedo servidos em miniatura em restaurantes clássicos do sul como apenas um petisco enquanto à mesa outros podem se lembrar de suas avós misturando as delícias simples nas preguiçosas tardes de domingo. E para quem não conhece nada disso, considere esta a oportunidade perfeita para se familiarizar. Siga a receita de minha mãe para biscoitos de creme azedo e você terá um lote saindo quente do forno em menos de trinta minutos. & # XA0

Como fazer biscoitos de creme azedo

Em uma tigela, misture 1 barra de manteiga com sal, suavizado para a temperatura ambiente, com 1 xícara de creme de leite e 1 xícara de farinha com fermento. Mexa até combinado. (Minha mãe recomenda adicionar mais uma colher de farinha se a massa parecer muito úmida, o que às vezes pode acontecer nos dias extremamente úmidos que estamos acostumados na Geórgia do Sul. Deve ser grosso e pegajoso.) Borrife levemente uma forma de muffin com antiaderente spray de cozinha & # x2014 embora a manteiga e o creme de leite os tornem desnecessários & # x2014antes de colocar uma colher grande de massa em cada xícara de muffin. Asse no forno a 375 graus por cerca de 20 a 23 minutos em média, ou até que a menor quantidade de cor dourada tingir as pontas. Eles serão de cor muito clara e devem ser removidos antes que os topos estejam totalmente dourados. & # XA0

Algumas notas de minha mãe incluem que ela quase sempre dobra o lote, usando a mesma proporção de ingredientes 1: 1: 1. O lote acima faz cerca de uma dúzia de biscoitos menores ou, ela brinca, oito & # x201Realmente gordos. & # X201D (Nossa família gostava dos mais gordos.) Portanto, um lote duplo deve render de 16 a 24, dependendo de quão grande você é os quero. Assim que todos experimentarem, você precisará dos extras.

Nas manhãs mais especiais, nós, crianças, íamos arrastando os pés para a cozinha antes da escola para encontrá-la fazendo uma fornada de biscoitos de creme azedo, no estilo do café da manhã. O que em nossa casa significava que ela acrescentou salsicha para o café da manhã (cozinhe e esfarele o equivalente a três hambúrgueres Jimmy Dean, ela recomenda) e cerca de meia xícara de queijo Cheddar ralado à massa de biscoito antes de assar. Tudo o que posso dizer sobre isso: FAÇA. É incrivelmente delicioso. & # XA0

Aí está & # x2014classic biscoitos de creme azedo do sul em um jiff. Não é necessário um mix comprado em loja. & # XA0

No que diz respeito ao sabor, os biscoitos de creme azedo acompanham quase todas as refeições, desde sopa a frango assado e frango frito. Então prepare um lote esta noite, por que não? & # XA0


Lista de 7º céu personagens

Os Camdens são formados por Eric e Annie e seus sete filhos: Matt, Mary, Lucy, Simon, Ruthie, Sam e David.

Eric Camden Editar

O Rev. Eric Camden (interpretado por Stephen Collins) foi criado em Binghamton, Nova York, por seus pais, o Coronel John Camden e Ruth Lynch. Baseado no episódio "Halloween" (1ª temporada), parece que Eric nasceu em 1954 (o que o tornaria 42 anos na época). De acordo com o episódio "One Hundred" (5ª temporada), seu aniversário é em janeiro. Eric frequentou a faculdade por cinco anos e se formou no Seminário Cobell. Pouco depois, ele se casou e começou uma família com Annie Jackson. Ele tem uma irmã, Julie Camden-Hastings, que acaba se casando com o médico que deu à luz o filho mais velho de Eric e Annie (Matt), assim como os filhos mais novos (Sam e David). Depois de sua cirurgia de ponte de safena, ele decide deixar o ministério e até mesmo parar de frequentar a igreja. Ele renova sua fé e retorna à igreja a tempo de se casar com Kevin e Lucy (perto do final da 7ª temporada). Ele teve três problemas cardíacos na 4ª, 7ª e 11ª temporada e sobreviveu.

Annie Camden Editar

Annie Camden (nascida Jackson) (interpretada por Catherine Hicks) é a esposa de Eric e mãe de Matt, Mary, Lucy, Simon, Ruthie, Sam e David. Ela tem uma meia-irmã chamada Lily, de seu pai, Charles Jackson. Sua mãe é Jenny Jackson. Durante sua educação universitária, Annie estudou de tudo, desde arte a negócios e economia, e em temporadas posteriores voltou a estudar para se formar em educação infantil.

Embora ela tenha escolhido ser uma dona de casa, Annie é um pau para toda obra. Ela equilibra uma família de nove pessoas com o salário de um ministro, é encanadora, pedreira, costureira, cozinheira e muito mais. Ela também serve, de vez em quando, como tesoureira da igreja.

Annie é a espinha dorsal de sua família. Mãe de sete filhos, muitas vezes é ela com quem os filhos vão conversar, muitas vezes com leite e biscoitos. Ela tenta, com seu marido, incutir uma moral forte em seus filhos. Ela espera que Ruthie não siga seus passos ou de suas duas outras filhas e se case muito jovem. Ela espera que Ruthie reserve um tempo para viajar primeiro.

Annie é a única filha de seus pais. Sua mãe, Jenny, morre de câncer no início da primeira temporada, uma morte que atinge Annie fortemente. Mais difícil ainda é a rápida recuperação de seu pai para um relacionamento com Ginger. Durante um episódio, Annie deixa a igreja depois que seu pai traz Ginger para o serviço. Mary a persegue e é atropelada por um carro. Annie aceita Ginger lentamente e Ginger e seu pai se casam. Seu pai sofre da doença de Alzheimer e Annie passa cada vez mais tempo com ele no Arizona antes de morrer. Annie é citada em temporadas posteriores, dizendo que gosta muito mais de Ginger agora que seus pais estão juntos novamente. No início da temporada, Annie soube de uma filha ilegítima que seu pai teve com sua namorada do colégio. Ela finalmente conhece sua meia-irmã, Lily, e os dois formam um relacionamento com o tempo.

Em 2009, ela foi incluída no Yahoo! 'S Top 10 TV Moms de Six Decades of Television para a década de 1996-2007. [3]

Matt Camden Editar

Matthew "Matt" Camden (interpretado por Barry Watson) é o primogênito de Annie e Eric. No início da série, Matt estava no terceiro ano do ensino médio e nasceu em 1980. Na primeira temporada, ele começou com 16 anos. Matt sacrifica seu tempo na escola para ajudar outras pessoas, se elas desejassem permanecer anônimas, ele respeitaria isso e nem mesmo diria a seu pai. Durante o ensino médio, ele salta de emprego em emprego, incluindo tutor e motorista de entrega de laticínios. Ele nem sempre é um aluno famoso, mas consegue se formar como o primeiro da classe e ser aceito para um estágio na Casa Branca em Washington, D.C. com a primeira-dama Hillary Clinton. Ele retorna a Glenoak para a faculdade, morando com um amigo e colega "P.K." John Hamilton. O novo tio de Matt, o Dr. Hank Hastings (que realmente o havia feito o parto), o ajuda a conseguir um emprego no refeitório do hospital durante seu tempo lá, ele decide se tornar um médico. Seu tio Hank é a principal inspiração para ele se tornar um médico. Ele acaba trabalhando em uma clínica para mulheres com Hank, começando por ajudar a salvar a vida de uma mulher que não conseguia fazer ninguém além de Matt levar a sério seus sintomas de gravidez ectópica.

Ele conhece Sarah Glass (interpretada por Sarah Danielle Madison), uma colega estudante de medicina, exatamente quando ele realmente deseja conhecer aquele que seria o amor de sua vida. Seu primeiro encontro termina com eles se casando. Como Sarah é filha de um rabino (interpretado por Richard Lewis) que deseja que sua filha se case com um judeu, eles inicialmente mantêm o casamento em segredo. Eles finalmente têm um grande casamento de família presidido conjuntamente por seus orgulhosos pais, que quase cancelaram a briga de casamento por causa de Matt, que planeja se converter ao judaísmo. Matt e Sarah mudam-se para Nova York para frequentar a faculdade de medicina e, embora tenham ocorrido problemas, eles permaneceram felizes juntos. Perto do final da série, eles se formam na faculdade de medicina e anunciam que estão esperando meninos gêmeos, que nascerão no verão seguinte. Seus dois filhos nasceram em 2006. Também é mostrado ao longo da série que ele conhece American Sign Language, resultado de sua relação com Heather, o que o torna bilíngue.

Simon Camden Editar

Simon Camden (interpretado por David Gallagher) é o quarto filho e o segundo filho. No início da série, ele é conhecido por seus irmãos como "O Banco de Simon" porque ele sempre parece ter dinheiro e adora ganhar dinheiro. Seus outros interesses incluem golfe, magia e carros. Ele nasceu em 1987 e no primeiro ano começou quando tinha 10 anos.

Durante o episódio piloto, o desejo mais fervoroso de Simon é por um cachorro. Quando solicitado a dar graças antes do jantar em família, ele até inclui um pedido de cachorro em sua oração. Embora seus pais não achem que ele seja maduro o suficiente para assumir a responsabilidade de um animal de estimação, Annie vai para o canil "só para olhar" e se apaixona por um cachorro que estava programado para ser sacrificado. Este cachorro se tornou o amado "Feliz" dos Camdens.

Ele conhece uma garota chamada Deena na sexta série e descobre que Eric aconselhou sua família anos atrás, quando ela foi diagnosticada com leucemia. Eles namoram a maior parte do ensino médio, mas terminam no último dia da oitava série, embora continuem amigos.

O ensino médio é uma transição difícil para Simon, apesar da ajuda de sua irmã mais velha e animada, Lucy. Ele sai com uma garota chamada Cecilia Smith (Ashlee Simpson), e eles até consideram promover seu relacionamento sexualmente, mas decidem contra isso. No verão antes de seu último ano, Simon acidentalmente bate e mata um menino chamado Paul Smith, que tinha a idade de Ruthie. Como Paul estava de bicicleta sem capacete e mais tarde provou estar sob a influência de drogas, a morte é considerada acidental e Simon não é acusado de crime. No entanto, Simon não consegue parar de se culpar pelo acidente e também teme uma retaliação do irmão mais velho de Paul. O irmão mais velho de Paul também foi o provável culpado por pintar "Thou Shall Not Kill" na placa da igreja do Reverendo Camden. Ele passa no CHSPE e sai da escola mais cedo para começar a faculdade. Enquanto estava na faculdade, em parte como uma forma de lidar com seus sentimentos de culpa e baixa auto-estima, ele quebra o decreto da família de não ter sexo antes do casamento.

Simon tem três namoradas sérias ao longo do show: Deena, Cecilia e Rose. Simon mais tarde se envolve com uma garota que ele conhecia da faculdade chamada Sandy, que tem um filho chamado Aaron, pai de Martin Brewer. Simon fornece suporte emocional e talvez até físico para Sandy e seu filho.

Depois de um susto envolvendo sua namorada Georgia estar grávida (mais tarde é revelado que ela só fez a reclamação para que Simon ficasse com ela), ele conhece Rose. Rose e Simon se apaixonam profundamente, ficam noivos e planejam um casamento. Eles finalmente chegam ao dia do casamento, mas decidem não se casar porque nenhum dos dois está pronto para o casamento, e Rose ainda tem sentimentos por um ex-namorado. Perto do final da série, Sandy e seu filho Aaron aparecem na festa após o não casamento, e Sandy diz que precisa falar com ele. No entanto, não é revelado o que Sandy queria dizer a Simon, mas presume-se que seja sobre a paternidade de Aaron que foi sugerido que Simon era na verdade o pai de Aaron. Na 11ª temporada, foi confirmado que ele não é o pai. Simon acaba se casando com outra pessoa ou fica noivo (como sugerido por Ruthie na 11ª temporada), mas não se sabe quem, embora seja revelado que ele se formou na faculdade.

Mary Camden Editar

Mary Camden (interpretada por Jessica Biel) é a filha mais velha de Eric e Annie. Ela é a segunda do 7º membro da família. Ela nasceu em 1982 e começou quando tinha 14 anos. Geralmente ela é a ovelha negra da família Camden. Aos 15 anos, Mary é uma aspirante a atleta com um grande amor pelo basquete. Com o passar dos meses, ela parece aumentar em habilidade e confiança (tanto que ela quer jogar na WNBA algum dia) até ser atropelada por um carro antes do final de seu primeiro ano, ferindo gravemente o joelho. Ela tem uma série de namorados diferentes. Ela namora Wilson West, um cara que ela conhece no parque enquanto está com Ruthie, que se torna seu primeiro amor. Mais tarde, ele revela a Mary que fez sexo com uma garota de dezesseis anos e a engravidou. A menina morreu no parto, deixando Wilson com um filho, Billy (na verdade chamado Wilson Jr.). Em seu último ano, ela e seus companheiros de time de basquete permitem que suas notas caiam, o que faz com que seu treinador os imponha um bloqueio. Depois de uma reunião secreta, a equipe decide encenar suas frustrações vandalizando o ginásio da escola. Eles são pegos no local do crime e são presos. Por meio de um programa especial para primeiros infratores, Mary consegue escapar de punições graves prestando serviço comunitário, onde conhece Robbie Palmer. Quando tira a carteira de motorista, ela não consegue estacionar em paralelo, mas, seguindo o conselho de Lucy, chora a respeito e o instrutor de direção, compassivamente, dá a ela uma nota para passar. Mary tem o sonho de jogar como profissional no Lakers e pensa que, quando seu técnico a liga, esse é o sonho que se torna realidade, mas na verdade está treinando deficientes físicos para as Olimpíadas Especiais.

Mary decide não ir para a faculdade porque perdeu a bolsa, mas sim trabalhar. Ela não consegue manter um emprego, sendo demitida em todos os lugares, do The Pool Hall à Pete’s Pizza. Enquanto trabalhava no Pete's, ela conhece Frankie e Johnny, um jovem casal viciado em drogas que tem uma filha chamada Mercy. Eric e Annie descobrem que Mary foi pega bebendo enquanto cuidava de sua prima Erica, parada por um policial e avisada, e que ela tem várias dívidas com empresas de cartão de crédito, seguradoras e com sua família. Não querendo que Mary chegue ao fundo do poço, Eric e Annie decidem que é melhor que ela vá para Buffalo porque eles não podem lhe dar a atenção de que ela precisa. Ela mora com os avós, trabalha em um abrigo para sem-teto no outono e começa a faculdade no inverno. Sua partida faz com que algumas pessoas na comunidade da igreja pensem que Mary teve uma gravidez não planejada, mas Eric rapidamente refuta o boato. Ela sai de casa com raiva de sua família inteira, que ela vê como uma traição, e se recusa a falar com seu pai. Com o tempo, ela se acalma e planeja voltar para casa no verão, quando ela e Robbie começarem a namorar novamente.

Enquanto em Nova York, ela descobre que Wilson também está morando lá. Em vez de ficar em Glenoak durante o verão, como planejou originalmente, ela termina com Robbie e volta para Nova York e começa a namorar Wilson. Depois de ouvir o conselho do Coronel, ela decide conseguir um emprego no serviço público. Quando não consegue se tornar policial por não ter idade suficiente, ela se candidata a bombeiro e, depois que o Coronel puxa os pauzinhos, ela entra no programa de bombeiro. Quando ela começa a treinar, ela conhece Ben Kinkirk, que também está em treinamento. Ele vai até a casa dela e eles se beijam, e Wilson entra. Os dois se separam e ela volta para casa, na Califórnia, por um tempo, mas em uma viagem para Nova York com Lucy, ela revela que está voltando para Nova York para treinar para ser comissária de bordo. Ela começa a namorar um piloto, Jack, que tem a mesma idade de seu pai, embora isso não dure muito. Ela se muda para a Flórida por um tempo para ficar longe de sua família. Enquanto está na Flórida, Mary encontra Carlos Rivera, um homem que ela conheceu quando era voluntária em um abrigo para sem-teto anos antes, e que os Camdens abrigaram durante a temporada de férias. Carlos e Mary se casam pouco depois de Lucy, e eles revelam sua gravidez e o casamento para sua família na época. Os pais dela visitam-no no nascimento do seu filho, Charles Miguel "Charlie", batizado em homenagem a ela e ao falecido avô de Carlos. Eles acabam se divorciando e Carlos leva Charlie de volta para Porto Rico quando Mary abre mão de seus direitos parentais. É anunciado por Carlos, quando vai ao casamento de Simão, que os dois estão juntos novamente e que Maria está grávida de meninas gêmeas. Embora Mary não esteja no casamento de Simon, ela ainda pode ver sua família no dia seguinte, pois ela finalmente se forma na faculdade no mesmo dia que Matt e Sarah.

Lucy Camden-Kinkirk Editar

Lucy Camden-Kinkirk (interpretada por Beverley Mitchell) é a terceira filha de Camden e a segunda filha. Lucy é conhecida (nas temporadas anteriores) pelos muitos namorados que tem, além de ser excessivamente dramática. Até a 4ª temporada, ela costuma ser vista como "menos que" sua irmã Mary e suas emoções sempre a colocam em apuros. No momento em que ela chega ao primeiro ano do ensino médio, no entanto, Lucy fica muito mais tranquila e troca de posição com Mary, tornando-se uma boa criança. Seu primeiro namorado é Jimmy Moon. Ela tem um relacionamento "normal" com ele, mas eles se separam. No início da segunda temporada, ela está chorando o verão todo e diz que Jimmy está namorando Ashley. A certa altura, ela foi presa por estar na área onde Jimmy traficava drogas. Later, Jimmy is shown when he had some problems with drugs, and the last time is when Lucy had a case as juror (though nobody told her what it was about because she knew the defendant personally, she was dismissed). In school, she has many friends and is popular—including being nominated for homecoming queen in her senior year. She has a very good relationship with her friend Mike, who is placed in a mental hospital and is otherwise ostracized. Although Mike likes Lucy, it never quite works out. Later Lucy becomes engaged to Mike's friend, Jeremy, but they eventually break it off.

In season seven, she marries Kevin Kinkirk and has a daughter named Savannah (season 9). Savannah is born in 2005. They live in the apartment above the garage at the Camdens' house up until Savannah is a few months old. She also becomes pregnant with twin boys, whom she loses in a miscarriage that deeply upsets her emotional state—though she eventually recovers. At the end of the summer, she tells Kevin that she doesn't want to have any more children. She is a working mother (working as an associate pastor), while her husband Kevin is a stay-at-home dad. However, Kevin is offered a job as a police sheriff in "Crossroads". Later on, Lucy helps a young woman named Sandy with her pregnancy, and they soon become friends. Helping Sandy drives her to reconsider the fact that she doesn't want more children. In the series finale, she and Kevin announce to the family they are expecting twin boys. Lucy continues her life as : daughter, wife, mother and church minister.

Ruthie Camden Edit

Ruthie Camden (played by Mackenzie Rosman) is the youngest daughter. She is named in honor of her paternal grandmother.

During her youth, she is portrayed as the rather precocious family sneak who loves horses. Ruthie was born in 1990 and she was about 6 years old in the first season. She began pre-Kindergarten during the first season and ended the series graduating high school a year early at age 17. One of her teachers tries to call her "Ruth" as she assumes it is her given name, but Ruthie says her given name is "Ruthie". In later seasons, she tells Robbie she has never had a nickname. She and Simon have much fun together as children, and become very close as they move toward maturity.

Ruthie is the only one to briefly attend a private school, but she leaves it in protest that her friend Yasmine is being denied admission because she is a Muslim. During her freshman year she develops feelings for Camden houseguest Martin Brewer and even tells him she loves him—but quickly covers by adding "as a brother." In her sophomore year of high school she begins to wear makeup and dates older boys in the hope that this would lead to a relationship with Martin. In season ten's "Love and Obsession", she dreams everything from Martin telling her that a paternity test had proved that Simon, not Martin, is Aaron's father to there being no Aaron at all because Martin had never met Sandy. When her former boyfriend and first love Peter returns during this time, she realizes that she had moved on from him. After ignoring Sandy for most of her pregnancy, Martin is present for Aaron's birth, as are both of Aaron's grandfathers-to-be. Upon Aaron's birth Martin leaves Glenoak for college he now lives near his son. This leaves Ruthie heartbroken, but by the time Martin finally admits to her that he loves her, she is in love with new Camden houseguest T-Bone. Ruthie and T-Bone love each other very much and even get tattoos, with Ruthie getting a tattoo of T-Bone's name, and T-Bone getting Ruthie's initials. After an argument they break up. Ruthie starts seeing Martin briefly. Martin says he wants to work things out with her but Ruthie chooses T-Bone and then Ruthie and T-Bone get back together. Ruthie decides to graduate from high school early and that she and T-Bone want to travel the world together. After her graduation, Ruthie with T-Bone join the whole family, and the other current Camden house guests, for an RV road trip that includes a stop at Simon's college graduation and that after that Ruthie and T-Bone plan to go travel the world together.

Sam and David Camden Edit

Samuel "Sam" and David Camden are fraternal twin boys and the youngest of the Camden children. They were originally played by all four Brino quadruplets Lorenzo, Myrinda, Nikolas, and Zachary, but once the quads started aging and showing differences between them, Lorenzo and Nikolas became the official actors for Sam and David.

He then looks out the window and a dog is sitting in the front yard. Later (in the two-part season two finale), the daughter of Happy's previous owners sees their dog (they called her Whitey) on TV and wants her back. The father comes to the Camdens threatening legal action if "Happy"/"Whitey" is not returned. Simon and Ruthie try to dye Happy's fur with food coloring in an attempt to make her look like a different dog. At the end (of part two), Happy runs away to return to the Camdens, and Whitey's family agrees that after two years with the Camdens, this beloved pet belonged with them and would not be "happy" anywhere else.

The next night, they go out for dinner after introducing each other to their parents. They marry that night, but when they try to tell her parents, they end up only admitting they "got engaged". Ruthie is the only person to find out about the marriage (and keeps it a secret until the season ten episode "Secrets"). The Camden family always knew Matt was married and eloped but they never say anything. The Camdens have dinner at the Glass house, in an attempt by Matt and Sarah to bring the families closer. After both fathers do all they can to stop it, Matt and Sarah marry for the second time.

Matt and Sarah attend medical school at Columbia University in New York City, returning to Glenoak when they can, sometimes together, sometimes separately. Their marriage hits some shaky patches, especially as Matt keeps encountering his ex-girlfriend Heather.

While she is there, she tries to hide the fact that she is an alcoholic. When Simon is playing "Batman", he takes the key to the liquor cabinet, pretending it is the key to Gotham City. Julie tries to get the key back, but when he would not give it to her, she attacks him. Annie runs in and throws her out of the house. Instead of sending her to a hospital, Eric locks her in his bedroom while she starts to go through detoxification. She eventually checks herself into a rehab center. After living in the center for a few months, she goes back to New York to live with her parents, the Colonel and Ruth. She returns to Glenoak two years later to get a fresh start. Back in New York, everyone knows that she used to be an alcoholic and she is fired as a principal because of her drinking.

While in Glenoak, she gets a job as a teacher and falls in love with Hank Hastings, the doctor who almost killed Matt during delivery. The two elope in Eric’s church.

When Julie and Hank need a babysitter, they take the risk of allowing Mary, who had been quite irresponsible, to babysit.

He starts dating Eric's younger sister Julie, and they get married after discovering that she's pregnant.

During their visit, they go to a hardware store with Annie, Mary, and Lucy. The cashier, Emma, has rings that are a replica of Annie's stolen ones. She suspects this, but then excuses this thought. The Colonel visits Eric at the church and is forced to put a cigar away because of a church rule. He suspects someone is in the room, and sure enough, a homeless orphan named George was hiding there. The Colonel and Ruth adopt him after Eric lets them. He later appears in "It's About George", where George's biological father Will Grayson is found to be alive and wants his son back.

In "It's About George" he meets his real father Will Grayson. It turns out that Will faked his death and plans to legally take George with him. Ruth and The Colonel refuse to give George up and plan to take legal action to keep their son. Eric explains to them that the judge would grant custody of George to his biological father and because Will never signed the adoption papers he has every right to take George. He gets upset about being legally forced to live with Will. George refuses to leave his adopted family behind. He runs away and declares that would rather live at the orphanage. His dad later moves in with him, at The Colonel and Ruth's in Buffalo, New York. In "Tit for Tat", it is revealed that he followed in The Colonel's footsteps and joined the army, serving in Iraq.

Roxanne Richardson Edit

Roxanne Richardson (2002–2004) (Rachel Blanchard) is Kevin's work partner at the local police station, the object of much of Lucy's jealousy but later become close friends with Lucy and they set up girls nights out where Lucy tells Roxanne what's going on in her life with her husband. She was an old crush of Robbie, and Chandler's girlfriend. Later, Roxanne reveals that she has enlisted in the Army and will be deploying to Iraq.

Cecilia Smith Edit

Cecilia Smith (2002–2004) (Ashlee Simpson) is Simon's girlfriend, who then dates Martin. She later dumps Martin, who loved her but she was not sure she felt the same. Another reason (which is not very clearly shown) might be that she thought Simon was returning—whereas he only came for vacations—and they might get back together (because it would no longer be a long-distance relationship). When Simon comes home (at the end of season eight), it was vaguely revealed that their relationship did not work out, because over the summer Cecilia went away to college, and it was only when Simon begins dating and having sex with Georgia (in season nine) that it is revealed that they had broken up.

Cecilia becomes very close to the Camdens while dating Simon, and even when he leaves to go to college she still spends a lot of time with his family, babysitting the twins, helping out around the house and often being there for meals, this escalates when Annie is away looking after her sick father, she is there so often that Annie becomes jealous of her role in the family, with the twins loving her and saying she is "more fun than Mommy". Annie and Cecilia discuss this and Annie resolves her jealousy when she realizes Cecilia is just trying to help, and she continues to be part of the 'extended Camden family' until she leaves for college.

Martin Brewer Edit

Martin Brewer (2003–2007) (Tyler Hoechlin) is the only son of the Marine, Beau Brewer. His mother died when he was young and, until he was 16, he lived with his Aunt Betsy, when his dad was deployed. During his sophomore year in high school, the Brewers moved to Glenoak.

Martin walks into the Camdens' life by chance and joins the already-growing over-glut of teen boys there. He follows Ruthie and her then-boyfriend Peter to the Camden house and everyone assumes that he is a friend of Simon's, except Simon thinks that he is there to see his dad. While Martin's aunt, an aspiring fashion designer, wants the two of them to move to New York, Eric manages to convince her to let Martin stay with them so as not to uproot him again.

Martin's favorite sport is baseball and has been scouted by both colleges and professional baseball teams. One team even offers him a contract during his sophomore year in high school (which he eventually turns down to complete his education). Martin lives with the Camdens for two years before his father's tour in Iraq finally ends and he returns home.

He also has fixed, rigid beliefs about sexuality and is staunchly conservative, which pleases most of the Camdens, except Simon. When Martin snoops into Simon's private affairs, Martin harps at Simon about the evils of non-marital sex when he finds out that Simon is sexually active.

Prior to his senior year in high school, while visiting Simon, Martin is not practicing what he preached about pre-marital sex, and has sex one time with a girl named Sandy Jameson. The event results in Sandy getting pregnant.

Martin graduates a semester early and, with the assistance of Eric and his high school baseball coach, starts college. He now lives near Sandy and their son. While Martin is not in the season ten finale, Sandy makes an appearance after the failed wedding of Simon and Rose. It ends with Sandy telling Simon she needs to speak with him (Much speculation surrounded this, that it was in fact Simon's baby). Ruthie falls in love with Martin in the meantime. Finally, near the end of the series, Martin declares his love for Ruthie, but then Ruthie had to choose between Martin and T-Bone. At the end, despite all they have been through, she decides to go with T-Bone, leaving Martin heartbroken.

Chief of Police Michaels Edit

Chief of Police Michaels (Christopher Michael) first appears in "Saturday" as a Sergeant who assists lost Simon, Ruthie, and Happy he takes them home, but when they find the house empty, he escorts them to Mary's basketball game, where most of the family converge despite Mary's initial wish. He returns in "See No Evil, Hear No Evil, Speak No Evil" to investigate the Camdens' carjacking. In "Happy's Valentine", Eric and Morgan call him from a camping trip to check on the kids at the house. He catches his son with beer and sends him home thereby ending the wild party. He then notifies Matt that Happy was hit by a car, and he takes her to Abbott Animal Hospital. He also informs Eric when Simon got in the car accident. He is Kevin's boss when he is a police officer. He is later promoted to detective, then to captain. In "Faith, Hope and the Bottom Line," he and Officer McGuire rush over to the Camdens' after Ruthie calls "911", because Simon was hiding in his room. Near the series' end he is promoted to Police Chief of Glenoak. He and Eric are friends and occasionally work together he refers people to Eric for counseling, Eric accompanies him on death notifications, etc.

Meredith Davies Edit

Meredith Davies (2004–2005) (Megan Henning) is Martin's ex-girlfriend, who ends their relationship after he told her about Sandy and the baby. Meredith and her siblings were taken in by Cecilia's parents, but were never legally adopted by them due to the meddling of their birth mother. After she and Martin breakup, Meredith's younger sister tells everyone at school that Martin got Ruthie pregnant. After discovering this, Meredith quickly denies the rumor, explaining to her sister that Martin got Sandy pregnant.

Sandy Jameson Edit

Sandy Jameson (2005–2007) (Haylie Duff) was introduced in the season 10 premiere as Simon's fiancée Rose's best friend, to whom Martin lost his virginity the previous summer. In the season opener, Sandy reveals she might be pregnant. This is later confirmed, and she gives birth to a baby boy named Aaron (after Martin's grandfather). In the season 10 finale, she had to speak with Simon, possibly about the baby's paternity. In season 11, she meets Jonathan, a doctor, and he proposes. Together, they decide to get married, but having gone on the RV vacation, it is unknown whether or not they get married and stay together.

Rose Taylor Edit

Rosanna "Rose" Taylor (2005–2006) (Sarah Thompson) was introduced (in the season nine finale "Mi Familia Part 1") as Simon's current girlfriend for season 9-10. The two are not necessarily serious but she seems eager to engage and marry, pressuring Simon into proposing. When at first he refuses, she takes it as disinterest in her and backs away, provoking him to commit to marrying her. By season ten they are engaged, and she makes wedding plans. The initial plan was for the two to engage at the end of their current school year and wed at the end of the following year, but she pressures him into moving the engagement date forward. During Rose's time on the show, she becomes a very disliked person by all except for Sandy Jameson, who was her one friend there. Rose is known for being selfish, rude, inconsiderate, and thoughtless, rubbing Eric and Annie the wrong way more than anyone.

By 2006, Simon and Rose change plans to marry in May, something they both wanted to be ready for, but still held insecurities and doubts. Annie, however, decides that they could not marry, and when an ex-boyfriend of Rose's surfaces in March, she sees an opportunity. Though most had come to accept Simon dating Rose, no one knew her at all, and it was this boyfriend who convinces Rose that she is not being a good person. In the episode Invitation to Disaster, she has a sit-down confession with Annie, explaining that she has been unaware of how she was acting and that her relationship with her parents and never really being disciplined or close to them at all is part of the reason. This provokes Annie to see her in a different light, and while she and Annie take on a mother/daughter relationship, no one else is crazy about them marrying. It is her ex-boyfriend Humberto who makes her realize that she is not ready to marry and that he still has feelings for her. So although they had gotten to the wedding day, they end up parting ways amicably. It is unknown whether they still keep in touch.


Some Kind of Heaven review – trouble in retirement paradise

“A fter my wife passed, I started nightclubbing.” The speaker is a resident of The Villages in Florida, the US’s largest retirement community, home to 130,000 wealthy boomers. The town has more than 50 golf courses and offers endless leisure opportunities, from bellydancing to karate, synchronised swimming to rowing. However, if this documentary is anything to go by, the town’s number-one hobby is dating. Director Lance Oppenheim takes a gentle approach, capturing some hilarious moments, but there’s nothing patronising or mean-spirited about his film.

You could make an entire reality TV series about The Villages. Oppenheim keeps it simple with a handful of profiles. Anne and Reggie have been married for 47 years, but since retiring Reggie has been behaving erratically, taking up t’ai chi and hardcore hallucinogenics. Footage of him in court on possession charges is priceless. “When we got married, he wasn’t so unique,” says Anne diplomatically.

Barbara from Boston is newly widowed and lonely. Then there is Dennis, an 81-year-old lothario with a leathery tan and a gold necklace. Dennis is not technically a Villages resident – he’s broke and lives in a camper van while trying to hook “a nice looking lady with some money”. Sidling over to a group of women by the pool, he looks like a jaunty, suntanned lizard. Sensibly, most of them give him a wide berth. Dennis used to be a showbiz handyman. “I did some work for President Ford,” he says to a woman who rolls her eyes. Give George Clooney 20 years and you could imagine him playing Dennis.

One resident says that the American dream is a happy retirement. Anne is more circumspect. “We live in a bubble. It’s not the real world.” But the documentary was filmed before the pandemic, and in the past year there have been news reports of coronavirus test and vaccine shortages in The Villages. Also in 2020, Donald Trump tweeted a video that went viral of a resident shouting “white power”. The real world has arrived in The Villages. A sequel please.
