The History Channel’s popular reality show American Pickers, which was last here visiting Jim O’Mahoney‘s Funk Zone museum in June, is returning to our Eden by the Beach in March.

The show is a documentary series where recycled and forgotten relics are rescued, while meeting characters with exceptional items across the country.

The hosts, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, give historically significant objects a new lease on life, while learning a thing or two about America’s past along the way.

If you have a large, private collection or accumulation of antiques worth perusing, call 855-OLD-RUST or email americanpickers@cineflix.com.

Meeting with Meghan

Former actress Meghan Markle is giving her first interview since dumping the British Royal Family with her husband Prince Harry to Montecito TV talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.

“Ellen and Meghan have already discussed a sit-down interview. That’s been in the works for some time now,” a source at Ellen’s Burbank-based show tells the London Daily Mail.

The two met by chance at a Los Angeles dog shelter where Ellen encouraged the Duchess of Sussex to adopt her first dog, Bogart, and the women have stayed in touch with Ellen and wife, actress Portia de Rossi, visiting the royal couple and son, Archie, at their Frogmore Cottage, Windsor, home last summer, as I chronicled in this illustrious organ.

“Meghan says Ellen understands her pain and suffering. That she epitomizes authenticity,” another friend tells the Mail. “Meghan feels like they are kindred spirits.”
