Chances are you have already read my previous all about my set visit to Baby Daddy where we watched the show in production(live) and got to see the cast and crew interacting and working on different scenes of each show. The set is very busy and the cast is so friendly, that when Melissa Peterman(Bonnie Wheeler in the show) came up and sat down with us in the studio audience it actually took a minute to have it all click in, to realize she was really sitting there. It’s time for Lights, Camera and Action with interviews with each cast member of BABY DADDY! Lavishly live entertainment out loud, grab your reading glasses and learn more about your favorite cast.
Melissa Peterman – Bonnie Wheeler – #BabyDaddy
Melissa Peterman is anything but that stereotypical blond you might be expecting. Melissa is a complete deviation from her character, however…. she is outgoing, and very funny. Melissa sat down and just began chatting as if we knew her forever. She knew we loved her show, but she just talked to us and was REAL! She has a nine year old son and she is from Minneapolis, Minnesota and she is really pretty! Melissa is dressed in a gray cape-like sweater and dark pants with her golden tresses just hanging perfectly as you can see. While this next photo is no where near the best lighting, it was before, Lights, Camera, Action but you can really get a feel for how wonderful Melissa is! I wish I could work with her on set, you know, be her long lost friend and have a few drinks, just have fun, because she makes it all seem so fun and easy! I think we could get in some trouble together and really stir the kettle for Ben!
We were in the midst of talking to Melissa Peterman(Bonnie Wheeler) and suddenly it was time to head down to the set to take photos with her, which was totally exhilarating, she rocks the #selfie! Check out our picture.
More Surprises on the set of #BabyDaddy
We were just finishing up on the photos and we were greeted by one of the Executive Producers Michael Lembeck. Michael was talking to us from the set as we were sitting in the studio audience. First, if you don’t know his work, let me say one word, “FRIENDS” he directed about 20 episodes of it and won an EMMY for “The One After The Superbowl” and he worked with the late, Peter Boyle in a few episodes of Everybody Loves Raymond. He also acts and has since 1968 so he is so rounded in this industry that it was a highlight to just have him there!(Thanks Michael)
He was like, “Hey guys, how are we doing, and how many of you have been here before? Do I know some of you? ” Just like we had met already and it was all cool! He’s simply amazing and drives the force when they are working. You can hear him calling things out, and asking for things to be changed above anyone there. It was great when he came up and talked a bit to us when Tahj Mowry joined us. If you want to see amazing in action, well it would be with Michael Lembeck, his personality is contagious and his cast is just the same, which leads me to the funny Tahj Mowry known as Tucker and the beginning of your eye candy moments— don’t blink an eyeball it’s about to get even better he is just the beginning!
Tahj Mowry – #BabyDaddy
Tahj sings, dances and acts and you might know his twin sisters: Tia and Tamera. Tahj’s character on Baby Daddy is Tucker Dobbs, the best friend of Ben Wheeler and his roommate. The chemistry between Tahj and Ben works so well, and yes they really are friends. Tahj is soft spoken and whispering because we were talking in between scene takes and we had to be very quiet as they were actually filming. I did learn that he likes to sing and has done a good bit of it to date. We headed to the set to take a few #selfies with him and here is what they turned out like! Tahj took a moment for a photo with me!
Now let’s talk to Danny Wheeler and Ben Wheeler – #BabyDaddy
Hold on to your seats, your eyes and begin to just feel the heat in the room rise just a bit more as Derek Theler(Danny Wheeler) enters! Derek is really tall, like beyond anything I would have imagined, he’s 6’5″ tall. Yeah I am smiling and you would be too, his arms made the perfect #selfie pole and well LOOK at him, lol!
To say HOT is just an understatement, but it’s another reason to watch the show! I snapped so many pictures and one is better than the other so choosing which to put up was the hardest choice. Did you know he was in pre-med studying and he needed to pay his bill for college so he actually began modeling and then things just worked, so he never became a Dr. He is from Colorado. Does he not look like an actual hockey player, seems like a natural fit to me! This is his first major role and he is ‘thankful’ for the opportunity.
Jean-Luc Bilodeau #BabyDaddy
Now Jean-Luc Bilodeau(Ben Wheeler) brings another element to the show a suave looking guy. Here’s what was funny, in the show he is not a hockey player, rather Derek is, but in real life he plays hockey(ok, so he’s Canadian, maybe that has something to do with it) and he also told us he loves the outdoors and goes hiking on vacations.
How in the world can you balance a set with all this guy power? Add Chelsea Kane to the set and you tip the scales favorably and so daintily! She’s a knock-out, home-run beautiful girl with a personality to match! If you guessed that she is simply adorable, friendly and loves her job you got it right! Chelsea is personable and so much fun, look at her!
She is so tiny, and the perfect match for Ben, I mean Danny, I mean hmmmm, who should she be with? That is the debate right now, right? How should she choose? While you debate this, here’s a few photos with Chelsea Kane!
I do have one last surprise for you, and as I was warned and all of my friends I was with, when this one smiles at you, all bets are off, his dimples are enough to take the wind out of your sail and set you into the clouds.. It’s none other than Eddie Cibrian—–and we got to meet him and take a few photos! Eddie was dressed in some great looking jeans, a jean jacket and a hoodie and he was smoldering. He is Chelsea Kane’s boss and well, it was just good timing we were on the set when he was there as well!
The cast of Baby Daddy are all out-going and friendly and really love us all for supporting their show! The show is funny and appropriate for ages 16+ crowd. You can find Baby Daddy on ABC Family and new episodes begin shortly. Lavishly live entertainment out loud, grab a few laughs and melt from the heat of the cast in this fun series– Baby Daddy on ABC Family.
