‘The Flight Attendant’ Season 2: Cassie aims for sobriety amid spy hijinks

I’m leaving the country to rest and relax and to celebrate the wedding of a couple of dear friends. But I would never leave you without some Pop Life, while I’m out on vacation, and the first offering is in line with fly away. Kaley Cuoco has come a long way since “The Big Bang Theory.”

Not only does she star in the critically acclaimed series “The Flight Attendant,” but she is also one of the executive producers of the dark comedy.

In the new season, Cuoco plays different versions of her character, Cassie Bowden.

The show airs on HBO Max, which like CNN is part of Warner Bros. Discovery.

Season 2 of ‘Russian Doll’

After three long years, we finally have the return of time traveller Nadia Vulvokov (she prefers the term “prisoner of time”), who in the first season got caught up in a Groundhog Day death spiral.

Natasha Lyonne is wonderful in the title role, and as the title suggests, there are layers upon layers here.

The second season is streaming on Netflix.

‘The First Lady’

The resemblance was striking and generated excitement for the series. But the Internet gives and takes away.

After the first episode, there were some…feelings about the show. There are other heavy hitters, too: Michelle Pfeiffer as Betty Ford and Gillian Anderson as Eleanor Roosevelt. Check it out for yourself and see what all the fuss is about.

Bonus: If you want more real-life Davis, her chat with Oprah Winfrey comes out Friday on Netflix.

two things to listen

Jason Aldean pays homage to his roots on his new double album.

“Macon, Georgia” is the country star’s tenth studio album and combines his latest album, “Macon,” with his new one, “Georgia.”

“Where you were raised has a huge influence on who you become and it’s no different to me…especially musically. Aldean said in a statement on his site. “My small hometown of Macon was very important in my musical training. Growing up in an environment that was a crossroads between country music, southern rock, blues and R&B, it was natural to mix different sounds in my way.”

The new project comes out on Friday.

The gem-winning sixth season of “The Masked Singer” in December reminded him of something from his music career.

Now, seven years after his last album, “Picking Up the Pieces”, he returns with a new one.

“Free wheelin’ Woman” comes as she has her say and clarifies a few things.

“I think the big mistake in my career was that I was living in my car for my dream,” Jewel told Spin. “That wasn’t the case, I was living in my car because a boss wanted to have sex with me and when he didn’t, he wouldn’t give me my paycheck. It was gritty and had no dreams. It was just about the pride of saying, ‘No I’ll have sex with you and if I have to live in my car, so be it.

The single mom is now more successful, but no less tough.

One thing to talk about

Harry Styles and Shania Twain performing at Coachella reminded me how much I love it when pop stars perform with country stars.

Now I know some of you might argue that Twain could also be considered a pop, but you can argue that with Nashville.

Cross-gender collaborations are far from new.

In the early 1990s, U2 teamed up with the legendary Johnny Cash to produce “The Wanderer”. And some of my most recent favourites, including SHE with Chris Stapleton performing “Hold On” at last year’s CMT Music Awards and Stapleton’s epic mix of songs with Justin Timberlake at the CMA Awards in 2015They have come to my attention courtesy of award shows.
I even recently spoke with former Backstreet Boys member Nick Carter about his duet with country singer Jimmie Allen for Carter’s new song “Easy.”

Good artists love good music, period. And me too, so I am grateful for this type of collaboration.

Something to drink

Colour me obsessed with Rihanna’s baby bump.

But just a reminder that as much as the stars are like us, they have some privileges that aren’t available to the rest of us.

So while Rihanna has been very deliberate in her fashion choices during her pregnancy (she spoke to Vogue about it), the average mom-to-be may not want to be on her belly as much as the star for fear of people touching that bulge.
