It’s The Holiday Season – Episode 85


One can easily argue the eggnog before the show was likely spiked!  The stars and their humor aligned on tonight’s first episode of the holiday season as we enjoyed two bottles of delicious Merlot.  In just 8 minutes we went from coffee to never forgetting “our first” to the naming of our new rock band.  Oh yeah we were drinking good wine the whole time!  Hope you have as much fun watching as we did making this episode for you.   The wine was delicious, and so were this episode’s Twitter hash tags:
