GAL APPROVED! An Unexpected New Star. Luxury Gifts From The Hamptons & Caitlyn!By The DivaGals | July 24, 2015 | Gal Approved
SEE. In Unexpected, newcomer Gail Bean plays a high school teen in Chicago who learns she’s having a baby around the same time as her teacher. But what’s really unexpected about this story is that it’s steeped in a real-life occurrence! “It’s based on [co-writer/director] Kris Swanberg‘s real-life experience. She taught on Chicago’s South Side, and one of her students and her got pregnant around the same time. It’s based on their story and they are still friends.” To prep for the role, Gail also drew on her own real-life experiences. “My best friend got pregnant our senior year of high school and I was by her side through it all,” she shares. “I spoke with the girl who is the real-life Jasmine and we hung out. I got to meet her son ΓÇô he’s four now ΓÇô and I drew from my own relationships that I had with teachers in the past.” There aren’t any shocking twists and turns in this┬á true-life tale. But it’s interesting slice-of-life feature to see how these two women both process and move forward from one life-altering revelation. Unexpected is currently playing in theaters. Want to know more about Gail? Come back on Monday for our exclusive interview with the rising actress!
SEE TOO. This weekend, it’s all about Caitlyn Jenner as her special, I Am Cait, premieres. The DivaGals got a sneak peek and we can tell you, she looks gorgeous! There are a lot of precious moments in episode one (it’s an eight-part docuseries) including revealing herself to mom and daughters for the first time, and getting the stamp of approval from ΓÇô who else ΓÇô Kanye! Hey, once Yeezus graces you you know life is good! I Am Cait premieres Sunday, July 26 at 8 p.m., on E!
STICK. TV DivaGal loves to put in a good workout at Mercedes Club NYC no matter what ΓÇô even if I’ve come off the set in full makeup. I take off everything except my eye makeup, which means it has to last through the sweat. Thank goodness for KISS Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe (in black). They kept my lashes securely in place, even through a killer spin workout. That’s worth a thousand kisses!
STASH. We couldn’t get enough of Real Housewife of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey‘s new sunglasses line at Jill ZarinΓÇÖs Luxury Luncheon (held at Jill’s stunning mansion in Southhampton!) as we munched on #SelfieCookie and drank P.S. Match sparkling wine from Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger. But that wasn’t all we scored! We can’t wait to try out GrandeLASH-MD from Grande Naturals, an eyelash conditioner designed to plump up our natural lashes, along with our Haven Collective and TLF fitness apparel, a giftcard to Saks Fifth Avenue and a Hempz travel set, just to name a few. And we’re already planning our birthday getaway this September to Delray Beach, Fla. after getting schooled by its very convincing board of tourism rep itΓÇÖs the place to be. You know us DivaGals will bring you all the deets!
