From the pods to the real world, “Love is Blind” stars Lauren and Cameron visit the We Hear studio to dish on the Netflix hit.
It’s James Bond vs. Coronavirus, and 007 is calling 911. And John Mulaney is brokering peace at a divided “SNL”.
What did your parents think before you even went on the show?
Cameron: My parents were like, ‘Don’t do it. This is insane.’ And a lot of friends had the same similar sentiment. Some were supportive and thought, ‘Take a shot.’ And I’m glad that I did. Something was telling me this is the right thing to do.
Lauren: “Likewise. I mean, my family’s like ‘Lauren. This is probably the craziest thing that you’ve ever done. And You do crazy things.” But at the same time, my mom was kind of excited cause she was ready for me to be married. She’s like, ‘Yes, grandbabies maybe. Girl, go on there. Find a husband.’
Were there any moments you wish the producers had included?
Cameron: One of the things for me was when Lauren met my family, because, of course, that’s such a pivotal moment in any couple’s relationship. And it was a sweet moment. Mom and Lauren really bonded very quickly. Lauren showed her her wedding dress on her phone. And Lauren’s dad came over soon after. And all of us get together and just bonded over the fact that we were gonna get married and what that would mean for the future.
Lauren: Yes, it was unfortunate that that was cut out because so many people were like, “Well, what happened? Did you meet his parents? Did they not want to meet you? And it was like, ‘No. We met and it was great.’”
Did you ever think the show would end up being this popular?
Lauren: While filming it, I definitely knew that it was something special. Of course, it was something different. It was unlike anything that I had ever seen. The energy felt good and different. And even just, being a part of it and being your true self, you hope that it’s going to be received. I don’t know how people are going to receive me, like being like this. So just the fact that people love it so much and I think that they’re so inspired by it. And it’s received so well. We’re not talking about just here in the States, you know, we’re talking about all over the world. It’s amazing. It feels like it’s fate almost.

Dr. Noooo! Coronavirus takes out James Bond
James Bond has “No Time To Die” — and no time to deal with the fallout of a public-health crisis.
MGM, Universal and Bond producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli made the following announcement Tuesday via Twitter: “After careful consideration and thorough evaluation of the global theatrical marketplace, the release of ‘No Time To Die’ will be postponed until November 2020.”
The stalled release date comes hours after franchise fans called for the global release of “No Time To Die” to be delayed amid fears about the coronavirus outbreak, reports the Guardian.
The official premiere of the film, 52-year-old Daniel Craig’s swan song as 007, was set for March 31 at the Royal Albert Hall, with a US release date set on April 10. (The film’s China release date was previously scrapped in mid-February.)
A few popular fan sites — the James Bond Dossier, M16 Confidential and the James Bond Dossier — published a joint open letter to the film’s producers, Wilson and Broccoli, citing public-health concerns about COVID-19.
“It is by no means easy to say this: The release of ‘No Time To Die’ should be postponed,” the open letter to EON, MGM and Universal reads. “It is time to put public health above marketing release schedules and the cost of cancelling publicity events . . . It’s just a movie.”
Pete Davidson pal John Mulaney attempts to broker ‘SNL’ peace for him
Pete Davidson skipped the “Saturday Night Live” afterparty at L’Avenue at Saks because of bad blood with his castmates, Page Six has confirmed.
Sources say co-stars including Chris Redd, Aidy Bryant and Bowen Yang were still fuming at the party about Davidson’s recent interview in which he bashed the cast, saying they treat him like he’s “dumb.”
“What he said during his interviews has made a lot of folks at NBC upset, and they don’t want to work with him,” a source told us.
But this week’s host, John Mulaney, who’s a close pal of Davidson’s, talked at the party “about how ‘SNL’ can be very cutthroat sometimes,” the source said.
“And while Pete is not doing himself any favors right now, the cast should take care of each other.”
