Bringing their A-game, The Big Bang Theory’s actress Kaley Cuoco and her horse, Escarlata, showed everyone what they got in their latest horse show competition.
The actress and equestrian shared with her fans that she and Escarlata recently attended a competition and partook in the 1.35 classic off the circuit category on Instagram. Cuoco posted a photo of her sitting on top of Escarlata, a beautiful brown mare, as she gives the horse a living embrace. In the photo’s captions, the star praises the horse’s performance, calling it “perfection”.
Prior to competing in the competition show, Cuoco posted a photo of her and another one of her horses, Benji, for fans to see.
For fans who are unaware of Cuoco’s equestrian side, the actress has been competing in many horse shows for the last couple years. She is not only widely popular for bringing to life Penny on The Big Bang Theory, but her riding skills has also received recognition as an equestrian.
Although Cuoco loves her horses and is passionate in the sport, there was a time when she could not ride. After falling off her horse in 2010 during a riding lesson, the star broke her ankle.
After her horrible fall, Cuoco was rushed to the hospital where the doctors informed the actress that they may have to amputate her leg. Appearing on the Ellen Show, Cuoco reflected on the accident and shared how she was already hysterical when the doctors revealed that one of the options she had to think about was amputation. The star goes on to say that when she found out, all she thought about how she was going to have to call her work and tell them that she’s coming in with one foot. Luckily the star is okay and did not have to resort to such drastic measures.
Cuoco also mentions how the doctors shared with her the worst case scenario because they thought that an infection had spread in her foot so when she wakes up from her surgery, she might find herself with only one foot. Like going into surgery was not scary enough!
Looks like the scary incident did not scare Cuoco from getting on a horse again because she’s got some major horse riding skills and talent!
There probably isn’t anyone who does not agree that Miranda Lambert has been through a rough patch after what happened to her and Blake Shelton back in 2015. But rather than letting the media get what they want, Lambert remained quiet about the ordeal.
Instead, she worked hard to produce an impressive album, “The Weight of These Wings” for her fans before going on tour. The singer has come back stronger than ever.
Being on the road is a topic that Miranda often mentions in her songs. Unlike so many of her fellow country singers, like ex-husband Shelton and popular singer Carrie Underwood, Lambert has remained true to her music and style rather than falling into the grasps of mainstream country influences.
Lambert’s latest stop on her “Highway Vagabond Tour” was Xcel Center where she brought the crowds to their feet to dance and sing along with hits like “Kerosene.” The story the country star told through her show was about a badass, hard-drinking country girl who knows how to survive hardships and struggles when everything else around her goes wrong.
The audience not only got to see Lambert’s strong and survivor persona, but they also got the see the more vulnerable and soft side of Lambert through songs like “The House That Built Me”, “Over You”, and “Vice.”
Fans got a sneak peak of her personal feelings and situation after her split with Blake Shelton in the song “Ugly Lights”, that depict the story of her lonely nights sitting and drinking at the bar.
For some fans however, they didn’t feel connected to the singer compared to her previous stops. But that didn’t stop the crowd from dancing, drinking, and singing away the night. Hopefully, fans will be able to see more of Lambert’s spontaneity in next time’s show.
A new Muppet is coming to the beloved classic kid’s show “Sesame Street”. This marks the first time a brand new Muppet will be joining the cast in a decade.
The newest Muppet addition is Julia, a shy four-year-old with contrasting red hair and green eyes. As for her hobbies, she enjoys painting and picking flowers in her free time. Viewers might notice that when Julia speaks, she echoes what her friends Abby and Elmo say. The newest Muppet has autism.
Veteran puppeteer, Stacy Gordon, who will be bringing the Muppet to life states that she understands that a lot of people are like Julia because they have autism. So with her new role, Gordon wants to bring Julia “to the heart.”
By bringing Julia onboard, the show hopes to raise awareness to autism by explaining her differences and hidden talents to the other Muppets and in doing so informing the younger viewers.
As explained by Abby Cadabby during the recent visit to the Astoria neighbourhood, it can be hard for others to gain Julia’s attention, as Big Bird has some difficulty getting her to listen to him so he had to repeat himself a few times. Julia is also extraordinary as she is able to see things others cannot.
Not only does the show believe it is a good thing to introduce Julia to the show, but the parents of autistic children have also stated how important and vital the show is for their young children.
See Julia make her debut on “Sesame Street” on the episode to air on April 10 as she becomes one of the gang members with Elmo, Big Bird, and others!
