Today Show: Lauren Graham Someday, Someday, Maybe Review
Lauren Graham, best known for her roles on Parenthood and Gilmore Girls, can add author to her resume now. The accomplished actress recently published her first book, Someday, Someday, Maybe. The book is very loosely based on her life and focuses on a young woman who travels to New York City to become an actress but gives herself a tight timetable to adhere to until she plans on giving up on her dreams.
Graham told the Today Show the book came along after Parenthood was picked up for a fifth season, which freed her up to work on writing , but it wasn’t just time she was looking for to write her novel. She needed a little pushing to convince her she could write and who better than Diane Keaton to tell you to write a story.
Graham said it was Keaton who first told her to write a book. She remembered telling Keaton a story, although she didn’t remember what it was about, and Keaton told her she should write a story about it. At that point, Graham basically had to write the book. She said the first 100 pages were simple, but after she sold the book, the deadlines really pushed her to work hard.
“It is a good coming of age story people can relate to,” Graham said, adding she wanted to tell the story about the show business she knew, not the red carpet and fame version US Weekly shows.
“Promposals” Becoming Norm In High School
It hasn’t even been 10 years since I graduated high school but I was still stunned to her to the term “promposal.” The Today Show talked to some high school seniors who are going all out when asking their date to prom.
Some birds do the moonwalk to attract a mate, rams fight each other to determine who will be mating and high school seniors try to outdo each other with grand gestures just to get a date to prom. As if being a teenager wasn’t already anxiety ridden enough, now you literally need a viral video to get a date to prom. One girl the Today Show talked with said she turned someone down because he wasn’t creative when he asked her to prom.
Johnathon Seen is one of thousands of high school students who put their promposals on the internet and he isn’t ashamed of his booty shaking video that got him the date and neither is the school he attends. His school, and others around the country, are promoting the chivalry their students are demonstrating and even encouraging them with free prom tickets for the best promposal.
