I went to NYU for Film & TV and had the entrepreneur’s spirit since being a tot when I contracted chores out to my older sister for a profit (ha!). I run Hello Lucy Design (a web management and design biz) full time as well as Editorial Direction for LikeABossGirls.com. As a full-of-energy go-getter, my motto is “Why the heck not?”. I'm a mid-western girl who has worked for the BBC in London, Nickelodeon in NYC, and Jazz Aspen Snowmass in Colorado. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving as Co-Director for three consecutive years for the Fusion Film Festival of NYU, celebrating women in film, TV, and new media.

This is the week to watch TV, bossery! If you’ve been working more than resting, kick off those heels and grab the remote. We’ve pulled the best of TV and film – just for you. Set your reminders and don’t miss out. Here are the awesome women that are lined up for your viewing pleasure:

  1.  Rebel Wilson Completely Nails Everything Wrong With ‘The Bachelor’ – Refinery 29

While promoting her new film ‘How To Be Single,’ Rebel Wilson had a few words of advice on what “not” to watch on television:

“Why are there, like, 30 girls fighting over one guy? It’s like, don’t put yourself in that position. That’s a bad position to be in. Know your self-worth. And if the guy – the amazing bachelor – wants to come to you, then he does. But it’s crazy how these girls carry on. Obviously, it’s entertainment. I would never do that. No way! He’s like kissing the other girls. He obviously doesn’t love them all.”

‘How To Be Single’ hit theatres on February 12, 2016. Following the film’s theme, Rebel and cast offer a few tips to single women on dating:

  1.  ’High School Musical’ Stars Reunite to Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary in Special Telecast – Disney Channel

“Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Tisdale, Lucas Grabeel, Corbin Bleu and Monique Coleman reunite to celebrate the global sensation’s 10-year anniversary. The group taped the nostalgic interstitial segments today at a high school gymnasium in suburban Los Angeles. Their fellow star Zac Efron will join the telecast in a pre-taped message to High School Musical fans.”

Just as you thought ‘High School Musical’ was a distant memory, here’s a surprising opportunity to see Vanessa Hudgens and cast again:

  1.  ‘Girls’ Season 5 Review: Still Maddening, But Mostly Maddeningly Funny – TV Line

“’She’s painfully narcissistic, shockingly tone-deaf and just generally one of the most insufferable people you’ll ever meet.’ That description of Girls‘ polarizing protagonist Hannah Horvath (Lena Dunham) from the HBO comedy’s Season 5 premiere (Sunday at 10/9c) is brutally accurate — and perhaps a meta wink from Dunham herself, who wrote and directed the installment. And yet, interestingly enough, in the show’s penultimate season, Dunham’s self-absorbed creation is also more sharply focused, fascinating and flat-out funny than ever before.”

The girls are back in town! HBO will premiere ‘Girls’ season 5 on February 21, 2016 at 10/9c p.m. The series ends after season 6, so don’t miss out:


  1.  A ‘Friends’ Reunion Is Officially Happening on NBC – MTV

“The entire cast of “Friends” will reunite for a two-hour special on NBC. Now, before you lobsters get too excited, this is not a “Friends” reunion special. Rather, the special will pay tribute to veteran sitcom director James Burrows, who recently helmed his 1,000th TV episode. Rachel, Ross, Monica and co. will all be on hand to honor his incredible career milestone.”

On Sunday, February 21st at 9/8c p.m. do not miss (wait for it…) ‘Must See TV: A Tribute to James Burrows’ on NBC:

  1.  History in the making: Ronda Rousey, Ashley Graham & Hailey Clauson each score a SI Swimsuit 2016 cover! – Sports Illustrated

“The three covers of Hailey, Ronda and Ashley celebrate the new SI Swimsuit. All three women are beautiful, sexy and strong. Beauty is not cookie cutter. Beauty is not ‘one size fits all.’ Beauty is all around us and that became especially obvious to me while shooting and editing this year’s issue,” explained Assistant Managing Editor MJ Day.

The 2016 issue breaks beauty barriers by featuring women in different skin tones, ages, and figures:
