The 2020 #RoseParade will have three Grand Marshals: gymnast @lauriehernandez , actress @iamginatorres , and actress-singer-beloved pop culture figure @theritamoreno.
Rita Moreno: “The Rose Parade is something I’ve been seeing all my life on television. It’s a dream come true, and I can only tell you I am absolutely thrilled.”
The theme selected for this iteration of the 131 year old tradition is “The Power of Hope." ...
#FelicityHuffman is in the slammer. The #DesperateHousewives star is cooling her heels in a minimum-security federal women’s prison in Dublin, #California .
The actress, who pleaded guilty back in May to her role in the #CollegeAdmissionsScandal , is serving a 14-day sentence for paying $15,000 to William Singer, the scam’s alleged mastermind, to have her eldest daughter’s SAT scores improved.
She was also sentenced to a year of probation and 250 hours of community service, and has to pay a $30,000 fine.

Gov. @GavinNewsom wants teens to get more rest. A new law signed by the governor yesterday will mandate that #California middle and high schools begin classes later so that students can get more sleep.
Under Senate Bill 328—which goes into effect in the 2022-2023 school year, or when a school’s three-year collective bargaining agreement with its employees ends—public middle schools will not be allowed to start classes before 8 a.m., while high schools can’t begin the day before 8:30 a.m.
One of the most vocal opponents of the bill is the California Teachers Association, which argues, in part, that families who can’t afford the extra childcare costs associated with a later school day will be especially hard hit.
“SB 328 could have a disproportionately negative impact on working families, particularly laborers and service industry employees who don’t have the option of starting their workday later." — CTA spokesperson Claudia Briggs.

#MeetCuteMonday time! This couple is proof that being set up works wonders.
@rosalietherealtor and @theagencyre met on a double blind date, which is when two people work together and play matchmakers. At first Rosalie was not into Morrie, but she eventually relented and after 6 months of dating the couple got married.
"It has been 27 years — My blind, dumb luck," said Morrie of their relationship.

25 years ago, when a team was scouting #LosAngeles locations for #PulpFiction , they couldn't just name drop @tarantinoxx. ⠀
As production designer David Wasco recalls, "At this time you have to remember, no one knew who Quentin was.” Things have certainly changed. ⠀
In honor of the modern classic's quarter-century anniversary, @jaredcowan revisited the film's iconic locations, from the #BeverlyHills mansion where Mia Wallace ODs to the #NoHo apartment building where Butch finds Vincent Vega on the pot. Of course some of the locations have been lost to time (RIP River Glen Motel). credit: @jaredcowan /Miramax ...
Happy National Indigenous People's Day! Yesterday people gathered at #GrandPark in #LosAngeles to celebrate the culture and history of #NativeAmericans .
