Hellcats media blitz - I worship at the television altar
Hellcats media blitz
Hellcats premieres tomorrow night at 9PM on the CW, and everywhere I looked today there were interviews, articles, reviews, vids, and pics! It is beyond overwhelming, and I'm not even going to try to keep up. Here are just a few things I found particularly interesting.

Aly Michalka talked to Brian Truitt for USA Weekend, and Tom Welling's name came up!

Tom Welling is also in Vancouver filming the final season of Smallville. Does he show up on your set often?
He does. When he has days off, he’s always here. He’s really got his hands busy with that show and our show as well. He really does have a great eye for not only just directing and producing, but also advice when it comes to us as actors. He’s really supportive and he’s not just putting his name on our show. He’s fully in there doing all the work.

He’s a guy who really grew up on TV. What’s the best thing he’s taught you so far?
To speak up about anything that might be bothering you, or if you’re having a down day, to talk to somebody about it. It’s a great thing for him to say because he’s like, “You know, there are times when it’s going to be really hard and you’re going to need somebody to talk to. I’m always there to talk to and don’t hesitate.” I really appreciate that.

Are you the kind of person who wouldn’t speak up and would just grin and bear it?
Yeah, probably. I’d just bite the bullet and go through it, or talk to my sister about it. But it’s nice to know that somebody’s there who’s not going to freak out about you maybe having a bad day. It’s cool.

Read the entire interview HERE. It's a good one!

Always lovely to have something to distract me from my annoyance with things that shall not be named. Tomorrow -- Hellcats, Thursday -- TVD. This week is going to be great. Aly and Ashley look lovely as always.

And Tom is just a hero, always inspiring to hear about him and the impact he's having on people BTS.

Thanks for the coverage!

I'm looking forward to Hellcats and TVD, too, and I'll be checking out Nikita as well. I'm ready for some new episodes and some fun!

A hero is exactly what Tom is. What a guy! *loves him*

I think this is one of my all-time favorite quotes about Tom. ♥

What an amazing man he is, to reach out to his young cast that way. I'm sure he's remembering what it was like for him when Smallville first started, and he wants to make sure these actors have a rock solid support system. So what does he do? He offers himself, in spite of all the commitments and responsibilities that already demand his time, because that's how sincere and generous he is. I could not admire or respect him more.

And yes, I think I would find myself needing "someone" to talk to quite often. ;)
