Black Veterinarians On Hit TV Show Give 100% To Animals (and People)
By Samara Lynn, Black Enterprise
January 15, 2018
It’s a phenomenon that is “kind of like a unicorn thing,” muses Dr. Diarra Blue about African American veterinarians launching and running a thriving animal hospital. And not only do they run the Cy-Fair Animal Hospital in the Houston, Texas area, but they also are the subjects of a hit TV show on the Animal Planet channel, The Vet Life. Dr. Blue is one of the stars of the show which just kicked off its third season this weekend.
The Vet Life’s other veterinarian stars include Dr. Aubrey “AJ” Ross and Dr. Michael Lavigne. The show offers insight into the day-to-day operations of a seemingly very successful and busy veterinarian practice. These doctors are not just tending to cats and dogs either. The last seasons have shown them tending to fighting roosters, hyenas, and even a tiger. The new season opened up with a very poignant look at how the hospital is dealing with not just the thousands of animals broken, injured, and stressed by the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, but also how the doctors and staff deal with the emotions of people in the community who have suffered so much loss.
How one woman’s tattoo journey allowed her to overcome bullying and beauty standards
January 12, 2018
Caroline Grace is covered head to toe in tattoos.
They make her stand out, but that wasn’t always her goal, especially as a teenager.
“I didn’t like the way I looked,” Caroline admits. “I started to wear makeup to feel good about myself. But then I’d get bullied for how I wore makeup.”
It didn’t help that her family moved around a lot, which resulted in her having to adjust to six different high schools.
“I got put down a lot,” says Caroline. “I got made fun of. It was very hard for me.”
As she struggled to fit in, it was around that time that she also developed a love for tattoos.

The reality series features three Houston-area veterinarians bringing laughter, pet health care, and family back to silver screen for a third season that premieres Saturday, January 13 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. Despite the hilarity and medicine, the Tuskegee-trained trio has one pet peeve.
“So many people say, ‘oh, I want to talk to a real doctor.’ First of all, we are real doctors,” fumes Cy-Fair Animal Hospital partner and animal physician Dr. Diarra Blue. “In the veterinarian community, we say, ‘you aren’t a real doctor unless you can treat more than one species.'”

Nancy Glass on Revisiting Jeffrey Dahmer for New Documentary: ‘He Wanted to Die’
By Danielle Turchiano, Variety
November 11, 2017
In the early 1990s, investigative journalist Nancy Glass sat down with convicted serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer for an exclusive interview designed to dive into the dark details of his crimes. Now, a decade and a half later, she is revisiting his life and crimes for a new two-part documentary, “Dahmer on Dahmer: A Killer Speaks.”
“People keep asking me now, ‘With all this violence, why this crime?’ And I say, ‘Because he touched every single victim with his own hands,'” Glass tells Variety about why she feels Dahmer’s crimes still continue to resonate decades after he committed and was convicted of them. “Think about that. Today we hear about these horrible mass shootings, and this is a guy that looked every single victim in the eye.”

October 26, 2017
Kew Media Group has acquired worldwide sales rights to Zach Fox and Omri Dorani’s teen comedy How To Get Girls, produced by Emmy winner Nancy Glass and Glass Entertainment Group. Fox and Dorani co-wrote the film in which Fox features along with newcomer Martin Cervantez and Chris Elliott, David Koechner and Chris Kattan.
Twenty-five years ago, Milwaukee resident Jeffrey Dahmer was tried and convicted of 17 gruesome murders, shaking the public’s perception of evil to its core. The shocking nature of his crimes – luring young men into his home, where he drugged, sexually violated, killed and eventually consumed his victims – unmasked a madman walking in the shadows and launched the question: how did a once mild-mannered, handsome young man become one of history’s most terrifying and unexpected serial killers? During his time behind bars, one of the nation’s leading investigative journalists, Nancy Glass, secured both exclusive access and the first televised interview with Dahmer, developing a candid relationship in which he divulged the darkest details of his life and crimes. “Dahmer on Dahmer: A Serial Killer Speaks” offers a fresh look at the infamous serial killer’s life through the eyes of the woman who became his closest confidant. With new interviews from pivotal figures in the case, the series sheds light on the grizzly and complicated investigation.
HGTV’s ‘Desert Flippers’ puts a Midwestern spin on Palm Springs midcentury design
Los Angeles Times
September 22, 2017
Can Wisconsin transplants strike midcentury-modern gold in the Coachella Valley?
That’s the premise that backs HGTV’s “Desert Flippers,” hosted by Eric and Lindsey Bennett. The duo flip about 20 desert homes a year with help from Lindsey’s brother, Mike Schneider.
The Bennetts, both 38, moved from Madison to Palm Springs 12 years ago. They now live in Rancho Mirage with their three sons.
The show blends surprises (from scorpions to squatters), budget busters (faulty AC systems are legion), DIY moxie, Eric’s sportive quips and the always-gratifying sledgehammer shot. Each episode’s cliffhanger: that ever-shifting profit margin, calculated by finance brainiac and loan officer Eric.

In The Jury Speaks, O.J. Simpson Jurors Share Their Side of the Story
By Michelle Ruiz, Vogue.com
July 21, 2017
Loving murder shows has become as basic as avocado toast and rosé. What started with Chris Hansen’s chilling baritone on Dateline has evolved to Netflix obsessions like Making a Murderer and The Keepers and morbidly fascinating podcasts like Serial and My Favorite Murder. It can be easy for viewers to forget, in the midst of the scintillating, binge-watchable drama, that murder shows are about real lives lost, and that the “cast of characters” (judges, prosecutors, defense attorneys, and suspects) are real people, too, with consequences that extend far beyond the courthouse.
Nancy Glass revisits O.J. case as a producer in ‘The Jury Speaks’
By Ellen Gray, Philly.com
July 18, 2017
Philadelphia’s Nancy Glass always thought there was a huge piece missing from the public’s understanding of the 1995 O.J. Simpson murder trial: the jury.
“Every single day, we broadcast from the area where all the journalists sort of camped out,” the former American Journal anchor recalled last week. “I knew about the jury. That’s the thing that bothered me. I knew that there was more to the story from day one. The public had their own reaction, but I knew that the jury was much more complex than that.”

In The Jury Speaks, a new Oxygen TV series by award-winning producer, writer, television and radio host Nancy Glass of Glass Entertainment Group, you will hear from jurors who served on some of the most high profile cases in the last two decades.
