When Pregnancy, Puberty & Menopause Collide… in Paris?

What’s a good story without some conflict? Imagine traveling to Paris with your daughters… while you are in the throws of menopause and your daughters are experiencing their own hormonal changes from puberty to pregnancy?

My Bitchy Witchy Paris Vacation This new original web series is created by Alexis Niki and shot entirely in Paris. Mingle Media TV is excited to be airing this on our network and hope that the support of our women, mothers and sisters appreciate this comedic yet touching story as it unfolds in Paris.

“My Bitchy Witchy Paris Vacation” shares the story of a mother going through menopause and travels to Paris with her two daughters who are going through hormonal changes of their own.

Imagine traveling abroad with your daughters (15-year-old in the throes of puberty, and a 24-year old pregnant with her first child) and their bickering as sisters do, while you are going through hot flashes and your own emotional crisis?

You’ll love how the culture and hormones collide in this true-to-life adventure both sweet, sometimes painful, as it explores the humorous side of mother-daughter relationships, the bonds of sisterhood, and the anxiety stirred by life’s major transitions.

Join us in watching this series as it unfolds here on Mingle Media TV and please share it with your friends. You can follow on Facebook and Twitter as well.

Wine Lovers Rejoice! We’ll be Gabbin’ with the Girls Thursday Nights on #MMTVN

You don’t have to love wine or know anything about it to enjoy our newest show on MMTVN – “Gabbin’ with the Girls” with Nan and Erin. These two look and act like sisters (without the bickering) and love to gab!

Their show format is simple… start with a good wine. They will be taste testing and talking about a different wine each week for their show opener and then will lead into other segments where they will talk about travel, real estate, finances, women’s issues, and more. Oh, and no talk show is complete without a Hot Topics segment from celebrities to what’s happening in the world we live in.

Best of all, these Gabbin’ Gals will be planning on doing some fun giveaways – did I mention they also have businesses of their own Nan sells “Its Just Jewelry” and Erin is a senior consultant for “Southern Living at Home.”

Tune into MMTVN on Thursday nights 10 PM ET for Gabbin’ with the Girls – http://www.minglemediatv.com/GabbinwiththeGirls.html – live streaming video web chat from Texas!
