The honeymoon phase didn’t last too long for Daniel and Noa. 

On The Baker and the Beauty Season 1 Episode 5, the couple had their first real fight as Daniel got a taste of the “celebrity lifestyle.”

There are plenty of perks that come with being in the public eye including a free Corvette that Daniel eagerly took for a spin, but as Rafael warned, everything comes with a price. 

A life of luxury is already costing Daniel his privacy and forcing him to question if he’s good enough.

The persona that he introduces to the public now is the one that’s going to define him, so it’s more important than ever that he stays true to himself. It’s what got him this far along.

But when he took a meeting with the Food Network, they were already trying to make him into something he isn’t. 

It seems like this will be one of the biggest struggles Daniel comes across — how do balance remaining genuine and authentic when the whole world is trying to change you?

It’s even more difficult because Daniel doesn’t seem to know who he wants to be or what he wants. 

Daniel found opportunity knocking, but he was too afraid to open the door because he doesn’t want to let people down. 

When Noa suggested he join her in Morrocco for three months, his response was still that he has ” a job.”

If Daniel wants to remain a baker, that’s fine. He shouldn’t be shamed for wanting a low-key career that utilizes his talents. He also doesn’t need to put himself on television if he doesn’t feel like that’s the right thing for him. 

Taking a Call - The Baker and the Beauty Season 1 Episode 5

But if there’s any part of him that does want something bigger and better for himself — which it seems like he does since he created his own social media food show — then he should be allowed to pursue it. 

He shouldn’t put his dreams and desires on hold because they don’t fit what his parents want for him. 

Saying ‘no’ to the Morrocco trip to stay and work at his family’s business would be a mistake. 

While it’s awesome that he remains so dedicated, at some point, he has to get out there and live his life. 

Noa isn’t asking him to move to Morrocco permanently — she’s giving him a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that he should jump at. Chances like this don’t come often.

The trip could be very beneficial to him and the cafe that the family is thinking about opening up. Just think about all those delicious new recipes. 

Daniel also needs to do this to take a chance on Noa and on himself. 

She’s putting a lot on the line to pursue a relationship with him. Plus, he had to know it would come with the territory as Noa is a worldwide superstar. She didn’t make a name for herself by sitting in Miami and never leaving her comfort zone. 

If Daniel wants more, he should go get more.

There are major changes happening for the Garcia family, and it’s understandable that everyone is a little bit on edge.

Memorial Day Weekend: 5 Best TV Shows and Movies to Binge-Watch

Published

on


Break out the red, white, and blue because it’s Memorial Day weekend.

The holiday, honoring and remembering fallen military personnel, is typically characterized by a three-day weekend consisting of parades and outdoor grilling.

But if you’re planning to kickstart summer indoors, there are plenty of great shows and movies to binge-watch with friends, family, or even solo! 

You can opt for some Memorial Day-themed movies, or you use this time to finally get around to that “one show” you’ve been meaning to watch! 

If you’re looking around for new shows to feed your eyeballs, look no further than this list of must-watch during Memorial Day weekend shows that are all streaming RIGHT NOW! 

 

Cruella – Disney+

Disney+ knows what it’s doing by releasing the highly-anticipated live-action film ahead of the long weekend. Emma Stone’s take on the iconic Disney villain will be fun for the whole family. It will be available on the streaming platform for an additional $30 fee or you can make it a night on the town since many movie theaters are opening back up again. The choice is yours! 

 

Why Women Kill (Paramount+)

The dark comedy is gearing up to release another deliciously twisted season in June, so it’s time to catch up on season 1! Since it’s an anthology series, you don’t have to watch the first season to understand the second, but you’d be missing out on some serious excitement. The series stars Lucy Liu, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Alexandra Daddario as three women living in three different decade each dealing with infidelity in their marriages.

 

Lucifer

Ready for some devilishly good fun? The hit series returns for the second half of season 5 on May 28th and explores family dynamics between Lucifer and his conniving brother Michael. We also meet God, played by Dennis Haysbert!

 

The Baker and the Beauty – Netflix

The series may not have gotten much love during its initial run on ABC, but it’s become a massive hit on Netflix. There’s even talks about a possible second season, which would be great so we can finally know more about Noa and Daniel’s love story. Set in Miami’s Little Havana, the premise is simple and so sweet: a local baker falls in love with an international superstar.

 

Cruel Summer – Freeform

Love a good mystery? So do we. And Cruel Summer has quickly become the hottest mystery of the season. Taking place over the course of three summers, the drama tells the story of Kate Wallis, a popular teen who goes missing, and Jeanette Turner, a dorky outlier who is accused of knowing who abducted Kate and keeping it a secret. Which one of them do we believe? There are seven episodes available to binge-watch right now!

‘The Baker and the Beauty’ Fails to Find a New Home After Getting Cancelled by ABC

The Baker and the Beauty Pilot Review

We have some sad news for The Baker and the Beauty fans — despite petitions and pleas from the cast and crew to give the series another chance, the ABC series has failed to find a new home.

According to TV Line, efforts to save the rom-com drama by getting it picked up by another, more appropriate network including Netflix, Peacock, and Prime Video were unsuccessful. 

Upon the show’s cancellation, the show’s leading lady, Nathalie Kelley (Noa Hamilton) explained that the decision to cancel the series was “tone deaf” during a time “when the public is marching in the streets demanding representation and diversity.”

Save ‘The Baker and the Beauty’: Nathalie Kelley, Eva Longoria Support Petition to Renew the Show for Season 2

Lisa Vidal, who plays Daniel’s mother Mari, took to Instagram to emphasize how much a show with a mostly Latinx cast is necessary. “There are over 500 television shows on air, and ZERO latino shows on network TV right now, and only a handful on streaming. The Baker and the beauty is a well written diverse show about a Latin family preppers denting our Latino culture in a positive light. It pretty much is for every family to watch,” she wrote.

The series found love in a hopeless place as Daniel, a baker working at his families Cuban bakery, struck up an unlikely romance with Noa, a very famous model-turned-fashion mogul, that turned their worlds upside-down. 

Season 1 concluded with a two-hour finale in June, but instead of offering resolutions, it provided fans with some huge cliffhangers: Daniel and Noa got back together and engaged, Daniel’s brother, Mateo, confessed to having feelings for Daniel’s ex, Vanessa, and the family contemplated selling the bakery. 

The least a network could do is renew the series for one more season to give it a proper ending! 

The series was cancelled due to low-ratings, but in its short run, it built up a dedicated fan base and proved that it was a summer romance that deserved a second shot.

Nathalie Kelley Releases Statement Calling Out ABC for ‘The Beauty and the Baker’ Cancellation

THE BAKER AND THE BEAUTY Honeymoon's Over Review

Fans aren’t the only ones upset about the cancellation of The Baker and the Beauty. 

Nathalie Kelley, who stars as lead Noa Hamilton, released a statement about ABC’s decision to cancel a show centered around a solely Latinx family after one season. 

Earlier in the week, the cast took to social media to share their thoughts about the network’s decision stating that they are shopping around the series to the “right” network. 

The series was canceled after one season just like Eva Longoria’s Latinx-focused series Grand Hotel last summer. 

 

Read Nathalie Kelley’s full statement below: 

Now more than ever, the world is waking up to the importance of diversity and representation on our televisions. We want networks to commit wholeheartedly to ensuring that BIPOC, LATINX and LGBTQ+ people, and other marginalized groups, get a chance to tell our stories. Baker and The Beauty was a show that embodied the themes of unity, empathy, and compassion, all of which are so needed in our national discourse right now.

For years, Latinx stories were limited to drug cartels, maids and the ‘spicy latina’ sex object. I credit ABC for letting us tell the story of a loving, wholesome and hilarious Cuban-American family on network TV. I praise them for allowing the youngest daughter Natalie’s LGBTQ storyline be central to our show. I am also forever grateful to them for casting me, an Indigenous woman, as the lead female role. Noa Hamilton was not written for a woman of color, but they cast me anyway. And I could not be prouder of what we all did and the show we created.

These stories create empathy, and there is nothing that we need more in these times than unity, empathy and compassion. That is why it was especially sad to not see them follow through on their support for our beloved series. Nevertheless I remain hopeful that there is a platform out there that will jump on the opportunity to give this show a new home. A chance to send a meaningful message to our communities that they hear our passion, our voices coming from our streets, demanding visibility and justice. The Baker and the Beauty is a beautiful show, one that means so much to so many people. It’s full of love, laughter, inspiration, and comfort. And I cannot think of anything more necessary during these times.

Sincerely,

Nathalie Kelley
