BTB: Jane Wilkens Michael Show: Love is Grand(parents)

Debbie Allen on celebrating the ones we love – Jane’s guest today is the multi-talented Debbie Allen, a Tony and Golden Globe award-winning director, producer, actress, dancer and choreographer. Debbie rose to fame in the 80’s series, Fame, and currently stars on, and is also an Executive Producer of, ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy. She plays the formidable Dr.Katherine Avery, a brilliant, vibrant, sexy, 60-something world-class surgeon. And she especially enjoys being the guiding light to thousands of young, would-be dancers and choreographers through her world renowned Debbie Allen Dance Academy. Debbie is, in fact, one of the most respected, relevant, and versatile talents in the entertainment industry. But with all that she does, the role that she is most proud of is being a grandmother—Ma D’ as she is called—to 17-month-old Shiloh. To that end, and to celebrate today’s active, vibrant grandparents for who they really are, Debbie has teamed up with Aspercreme on its new Love is Grand campaign. Aspercreme has a long track record of effectively relieving minor aches and pains. And we all know that as we get older, it is precisely those aches and pains that tend to slow us down, not to mention prevent us from keeping up with our grandchildren. Hear, too, Debbie’s lifestyle secrets for anti-stress, stamina, and staying physically fit, as well as her favorite mantra passed down from her own amazing mother: Be True, Be Beautiful, Be Free. And that is what being Better Than Before is all about.
