When you think of the original
sitcom what television comes to mind? You probably puzzle it out for a
moment and then immediately I Love Lucy comes to mind. By any standard
this show is considered legendary and a classic among many other shows
that could never live up to the long lasting love of Lucille Ball’s
character in I Love Lucy. She is one of the most lovable and laughable
characters in television history. She is also known as one of the first
comediennes to really make it in Hollywood. At the height of her
popularity she was one of the only women in comedy, which was quite a
feat back then. There are also the stories of Lucy off screen with
regards to her on again off again relationship with her on screen
husband Ricky Ricardo. Even though they had a rocky relationship at
home, on screen they were brilliant together, each playing off of the
other with great comedic timing. Check out http://www.giveadish.com/ to find out if you can get the channel that plays I Love Lucy in syndication.
Women have been known to lament, "Always a bridesmaid, never a bride." For Johnny Smith, the problem is, "Always a Best Man, never a groom." At age 33, housepainter Johnny has been Best Man eight times. The ultimate man's man, Johnny loves the Mets, the Jets, his weekly poker game, and the hula girl lamp that hangs over his basement pool table. Johnny has the instant affection of nearly every man he meets, but one thing he doesn't have is a woman to share his life with, and he wants that desperately. When Johnny meets District Attorney Helen Troy, he decides to renounce his bro-magnet ways in order to impress her. With the aid and advice of his friends and family, soon he's transforming his wardrobe, buying throw pillows, ditching the hula girl lamp, getting a cat and even changing his name to the more mature-sounding John. And through it all, he's pretending to have no interest in sports, which Helen claims to abhor. As things heat up with Helen, the questions arise: Will Johnny finally get the girl? And, if he's successful in that pursuit, who will he be now that he's no longer really himself? THE BRO-MAGNET is a rollicking comedic novel about what one man is willing to give up for the sake of love.
