Keeping romance alive Brangelina is divorcing, apparently because Brad and Angelina have irreconcilable parenting differences, but you can keep their romance alive with Mr. and Ms. Smith. That should put a Band-Aid on the Brangelina wound, but adding in ice cream, chips and popcorn will probably also help.
Talking about politics Chelsea is Chelsea Handler’s follow-up to the Chelsea Does series, and last week’s episode, My Story is an American Story, starred guests Diane Guerrero and Mike Coulter and was one of her best. Guerrero discussed the deportation of her parents when she was a kid, and Coulter talked about his new show, Luke Cage. Although the show is sometimes controversial and edgy, her episodes are more hard-hitting than other daytime talk shows, and she often brings up politics and social justice issues.

Recipe of the week:
Northern Irishman like the one you might order at Ugly Mugg
Ugly Mugg uses nitrogen coffee, but if you don’t have a $1,000 dollars to spend on a nitrogen machine, just ice and coffee into a blender. When you have a smooth blended drink, add in Jameson whiskey and a little bit of Kahlua for a bolder, creamier coffee flavor.
