  1. I have a absolutely no doubt there was a private communication between the two. The only reason we know of her greeting to Kunal was because she responded to his Instagram post thanking others for well-wishes on his birthday. They are in different places in their personal and professional lives, but in the small “peeks” we get of their friendship we know that they are that—true friends. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  2. Agreed. Johnny, Kaley and the remaining cast members were under-utilized when it stopped being TBBT and became the Shamy and their Minions Show.

  3. hokie3457, I've enjoyed reading your stories as well. I'd put your writing right up there with Tensor. There are so many writers who's stories I enjoy reading. Some are Shamy writers. But I draw the line at shenny stories.

  5. When you talk about not having time together, you also have to look into the future. Karl's ranch, his source of income is in San Diego. He doesn't just ride, he, along with his business partner, also breeds and trains horses and he oversees the running of the ranch. That particular job requires him to be in San Diego for long stretches. It may be only a two hour drive, but that is each way. Each day, he'd be looking at a situation where he would be getting to their home north of LA, in time to get to bed. A situation that would be like he wasn't there. Also, I'm not sure if anyone here has really noticed, but since last year, he has been on a rather lengthly streak of doing well in tournaments. He now has three horses that he competes with in the Grand Prix and FEI events. Continuing to do well, and moving into a higher bracket, possibly the Olympics, would require more training time, more time with the horses, more traveling, as most of the big events are on the east coast, in Kentucky and Tennessee, along with Florida, even while continuing to run the ranch. I know we follow Kaley, and we know her career is really going well. But, as an executive producer, she'll be responsible for overseeing all the details of the productions. You add in her acting (we now hear she's shot an appearance on "Curb Your Enthusiasm" in addition to everything else), and she may have to work on those production details, for the next production, the same day she was acting in a current production. As a result of that, she's also not home because of the long hours and traveling. I think the triggering event could have been them sitting down looking for when they would have some time together, and realized that it wasn't going to happen in the near future, or even the far future, unless one or the other gave up their careers. And if neither one of them wanted to give up their careers, there may have been a realization that there was no reason to stay married. As far as kids, if they weren't willing to give up their careers, kids should be out of the question.

  6. Not to mention that Kaley is 5 years older than Karl, so her biological clock is probably ticking to the end of what's considered safe for child bearing

  7. After talking with Jessica, she suggests that if you are planning on getting the book that you should watch through the series before reading. This way, you'll have the show fresh in your mind when you read what was going on with the actors or situations behind the scenes (BTS) for a particular scene or a particular arc. Another way of doing it, (or after getting through the book), would be to find those individual stories that interest you and find out what happened BTS, then watch those particular scenes or arcs. She mentioned it should give you a new insight into some of the major and/or iconic scenes. Think of it as audio commentary on the DVDs, except you have to read it.

  9. It may be the Lenny fanfiction writer in me talking here but with Johnny, I always felt that the reason his relationships failed, no matter how much love was there or intimacy or even offspring (in Alaina's case), the one reason he can't have a truly long relationship with those women is that they lack one specific thing. They're not Kaley. As for Kaley, who knows? It comes over as her being incapable of keeping the spark alive that made her get into those relationships or even marriages. With both of her husbands, she shared a specific love for something. With Ryan, it was tennis, with Karl, it was horses (and other animals). But that's really not enough to sustain a relationship in the long run. Though that's really just speculation unless she opens up about it.

Lololols and a gif Christmas tree. At the bottom was @sanctionedjohnnygalecki It appears it’s her way of wishing him Merry Christmas.

  15. It looks like they are wrapping up the shoot in Iceland. Sue McCormack ("Go.for.Sue" on instagram) the Senior Vice President for development at Yes, Norman productions did a humorous IG post. She posted a picture of the temperature in Reykjavik and LA, both were at 45 F. She told LA to get it's shit together, cause she'll be home Sunday, the 19th.

  18. that's another staple of S/P fanfics, Amy and Leonard are emotional abusers and they enable Penny's drinking problem , don't you know that Penny and Sheldon are victims who married their captors? I mean , there are many things you can dislike in the canon pairings but to have such a view of them is quite baffling.

  19. To the Shenny writers the part that Sheldon is smarter is overlooked. But, it's fiction, so they write their stories overlooking that fact. Then they have to conform Penny and Sheldon's character traits to fit their stories. Not to mention bash Leonard and Amy. I agree that they can write what they want to write. Just please tell us in the description that it's a Shenny story.

  22. The funny part is their friendship doesn’t have to conform to the wants or doubts of fans. Personally, I would prefer a good Skype call from a friend to a quick greeting on IG. Here’s a thought, some people (not just here) were wondering if Johnny and Kaley were still friendly last year, as they hadn’t seen any public communication between them. When, at the time they were doing multiple joint interviews for the upcoming book.

  24. One thing from Kaley's recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, they asked her if she knew Penny's name and she mentioned, in her mind, it was Penny Penny Penny, all three of there names being Penny. She was thinking Sheldon knew her first, middle, and last names. Then she paused and said, "But, her last name is Hofstadter, now."

  26. They had it built, then bought it. The property had a house on the site and the property was bought by a developer in a private sale, who then demolished the house on the property. He then worked with Kaley and Karl in building the house and other buildings on the property, to their specifications. After it was completed, two trusts (you get one guess on who controlled those two trusts) bought the house, again in a private sale. There are several reasons for doing a private sales; anonymity, taxes, cost, among others. And, people with Kaley and Karl's wealth use trusts, LLCs, and corporations for all kinds of things. The house was sold in a private sale. I have an idea that the sale of the house may be part of the divorce proceedings. Their divorce could have been final last month (six months from the initial filing). The fact that it has not yet gone final is an indication, at least to me, that this may be the final piece in what is hold up the final decree. Almost all of their income would be part of their prenup (based on their filings asking the judge not to include their income in community property). This is something they bought together and it would have to be disposed of, either through a sale or one or the other buying out the others half, before the final decree issued.

  27. Today, a new book about the show was announced by Grand Central Publishing. The title, "The Big Bang Theory: The Definitive Inside Story of the Epic Hit Series", written by Jessica Radloff . She did all new interviews with the cast and the creative team. The release date is currently scheduled for Oct 11th. Here’s a link to The Hollywood Reporter article. Here's a link to the publisher's site. Below you will find posts with links to the IG posts of the cast members, who agreed to help launch the book.

  28. A couple of things. The fact that 4B is out over the street has been mentioned by many people before. There are only five floors in the building (only four with apartments, floors 2-5). In 11-19, The Tennant Disassociation, Leonard and Penny are talking to the guy in 5B and you can see the door with "Roof Access" on it. There isn't any openings, on the first floor, for there to be any building on the A side. There is no where for the laundry room to be as It would seem to be by the hallway to the left of the mailboxes, but in S5E7 The Good Guy Fluctuation, you can see down that hallway and it ends in a door. Now, that could be the laundry room door, but from the shots inside the laundry room, it can't be that door. We have to accept that there can't be an accurate floor plan. The hallway to the bedrooms looks to be much larger than in the show. There is a closet in Sheldon's room, just to the left of where Leonard's bed is (FWIW, Sheldon's room is larger here, than shown in the show). There is a closet in Leonard's room where the triangle formed by Leonard's room, the kitchen and the hallway is. We've seen Leonard's closet in several episodes. There is also a closet behind the couch and there is or is not a closet in the hallway, by Leonard's bedroom's door, depending on which episode you are watching. In S1E5, The Hamburger Postulate, there is a shot of Sheldon's door, a picture in a frame, and another door, presumably a closet right next to Leonard's bedroom door. However, in S2E3 The Barbarian Sublimation, there is no door next to Leonard's, in the hallway, all you see is Sheldon's Bedroom door. And, in S5E15 The Friendship Contraction, you can clearly see a door, in the hallway, right next to Leonard's bedroom door with the frame of a picture. I believe there is one episode that has a short hallway to a door, next to Leonard's door.

  29. I happen to watch Entertainment Tonight last night and they had a segment on Kaley and her struggles in filming TFA 2 and also her struggles in her private life getting through her divorce. I have to say that I admire Kaley even more now than when she divorced Ryan Sweeting. Then in the midst of her divorce she had to film the first two episodes of season 9 of TBBT. These were the episodes where Penny and Leonard get married and then reconcile after their spat on their wedding night. Her performance was extremely good despite her emotional burden of going through a divorce. But it seems this divorce is taking more of a toll on her as she had to start filming TFA 2 only four days after her divorce announcement. And not only was she the star but also the producer boss. She admitted there were long days in filming as she had to play multiple versions of Cassie Bowden and then go home at night and struggle through her privacy without Karl. She said she had no escape to relax and ease down and hinted at seeing a therapist. So I admire her for her inner strength of character to meet each day and admit she needed help. She said she would not have made it if it was not for her friends and filming crew and that is why she had a meltdown after the last scene was shot. Kudos to you Kaley and I hope you find true happiness and love in the future.

  30. Yeah, go on about their business. You should see how hostile some people get when you point this out. I had an interesting experience trying to edit Wikipedia, showing Penny’s last name was Hofstadter. One person claimed the show never specifically said she changed her name. I pointed out she was called Mrs. Hofstadter on several occasions, and provided a screen cap of Penny’s badge in The Convention Valuation. I was told screen caps didn’t count, so of course I was on it when that person used the package screen cap to claim her maiden name was Teller, I pointed out that, according to them, screen caps didn’t matter. Naturally they were pissed off when I point out their Hypocrisy.

  31. The producers emphasized many times that Sheldon was not written as having Aspergers or any other diagnosible condition. Viewers continue to insist that he's on the Autism spectrum in order to suit their own interests or purpose. Maybe they just do it to make an often insufferable character more likeable. Sheldon very much means many of the mean, hurtful things he says. Sheldon doesn't insult other scientists and dismiss their work unaware of how offensive he's being. He doesn't demean Howard's work and education because he doesn't know any better.

  33. Sounds as if Kaley is going through an emotional rough patch again. A few post about getting cheered up( Bri brought her flowers, a comment about not surviving without Dumps, a friend giving her shoes that made her smile, a quote about better days being ahead). Also appears she may have hurt her neck, based on a comment she posted. With her friends helping, she’ll get through it.

  34. As much as we hate The Wheaton Recurrence, the actors loved it as it gave them a chance to do some acting that was a bit meatier than their usual work on the show, hence Johnny's selection. I remember one of the episodes, Mayim put out about how excellent it was and, of course, many Shamys went ballistic when it was a bad Shamy episode, but Mayim and Jim got an opportunity to really do some serious acting. I think Johnny's selection of The Benefactor Factor had to do with his chance to work with Jessica Walter more than anything else.

  37. An unmarried mother automatically get legal and physical custody of the child. If the father wants to be in or play an active role in the child life, and the mother disagrees, the father would have to petition the court to determine paternity. Once that is determined, if the mother and father disagree, then you would have to petition the court for parental visits. . This is where you are confusing the laws with the latitude judges have when making a ruling, based on those laws. It isn't an automatic that just because the father is declared the legal father, the ruling is the child splits the time equally between the mother and father. The father would have to again petition the court, presenting evidence for visitation rights (the term varies from state to state) . The mother would also have to present evidence, there would probably be some input from the child(depending on age), along with others who could be called and then the judge would decide, how much time each parent would have, in what they feel is in the best interests of the child. However, the judge can, and some have, make what seems like an illogical decision. There have been many instance of what many thought of as silly judgements. Like one case where the child was given to the mother, even though she was an addict or in a couple of cases, convicted of murder. I have no idea what you are trying to say here. He can try to do something, if the mother is fighting him, it would require he show he is the better parent and even that may not matter. A couple of things here. One, What you don't seem to realize is that an agreement, behind closed doors, is not legally binding. For the agreement to be legally binding, it would have to go through court, probably family court. Any decision from such a court would be publicly available through the state or county records. If you don't think quite a few of the gossip mags haven't already done records checks with the State of Tennessee, within family court, using Johnny's name, you don't know how these things work. Hell, they do several different records checks each day in and around LA, that's how a couple of mags found out about Kaley's filling for divorce from Ryan. Speaking of which, if you, personally, want information on either of Kaley's divorces, Mayim's divorce, etc, you can pay the County of Los Angles the required fee, and they will send it to you. Same thing if you know of any records of Johnny's in Tennessee. It's all public information, by law. And, even if there is some reason to seal the records, it would still show that there was something done in court. BTW, a custody agreement would not be sealed, which of course the rag papers would find and publish. So, no, there would not be any legally binding agreement, behind closed doors. Two, a lot of stuff could have happened. All we can go by is what is in the public record. That includes any verifiable stuff on TV, Radio, magazines, State records, news, etc. And, if it is in any of those records, you can be sure it will be published. You can't prove or disprove a negative and that is exactly what you are trying to do by saying this or that could have happened. And, anything that is legally binding would have to go through a court, which would all be in public records. Again, I merely put that in to dampen speculation that they could be some change. I don't think it's likely, both Alaina and Johnny seem to be on good terms, but that doesn't mean their might be problems, however unlikely, down the road.

  39. Does this sound familiar? Rocket fuel experiment explodes in BYU dorm room (Posted: Feb 21, 2022) PROVO, Utah (ABC4) – Campus police and local firefighters responded to a science experiment gone very wrong on Sunday afternoon. The BYU Police Department says around 4:30 p.m., a fire alarm went off at a dorm complex on the BYU campus at Heritage Halls Building 4. Police are dubbing the culprit BYU’s very own “Rocket Man.” When Provo fire crews arrived, they witnessed the sprinkler systems fully activated, flooding the main floor. Upon investigating, fire crews say a dorm resident had been making homemade rocket fuel on the kitchen stove when the mixture suddenly exploded into a fireball. The explosion ejected intense flames onto the walls and ceiling around the stove. Luckily, fire crews were able to secure the scene and extinguish the intense blaze. No injuries were reported, but some dorm residents will be displaced due to the flooding caused by the sprinkler system. “Please keep your experiments in the lab and supervised by trained professionals,” says BYU Police.

  40. I don't want to get off topic too much otherwise Tensor will spank us lol but my biggest disappointment when it comes to Leonard is that they didn't allow him to achieve anything big in physics. Don't get me wrong, he's built a good life for himself , he's a renowned academic, he's got a great job at Caltech but I was so hoping he'd get a big win at some point ( not a Nobel because that was never gonna happen for him, let's be realistic) but alas... I had so many hopes.

  44. Agreed! Another example was when they let him have his way with eating at the dining room table. I've always hated Sheldon's remark about "Sometimes the baby wins". The writers almost always let Sheldon win. That's why I love that Season 10 Episode where Sheldon hurt both feet, went head first into the water cooler and hurt his hand trying to Karate chop Burt. Also loved the episode with Bill Gates where Sheldon was hopelessly gullible.

  46. We've discussed how busy Kaley is, but only touched on how busy Karl is. Besides running his ranch, over the last year, he's spent 26 of the 52 weeks competing. The first five of those weeks were in California,(about a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from the home). After a four week break,(shipping horses can take some time) the next six of those weeks were in Florida. After a two week break, eight weeks were in Kentucky-Virginia, before another two week break before competing for five weeks in Michigan. Finally a two week break and he's competed for the last two weeks in North Carolina. He will be moving on to Kentucky, for the next two weeks. There were also various single weeks of not competing adding to the time at each place. North Carolina and Kentucky are important, because there are events there that are part of the North American League schedule, to qualify for the 2022 FEI World Cup. Karl was riding in the East coast and and the Midwest and missed the first two events, on the West coast. There are several more qualifiers over the next two months. Las Vegas, Florida, Texas and even in Mexico. I don't think he'll make all of them, but with his fourth place finish, he currently sits 9th in the standings. The top 24 go to the world cup final, in Germany, in early April, 2022. As for the World Cup, you just can't drop the horse off the day before. They generally ship, for Europe, four to six weeks prior to the competition. So, sometime late February or early March, so they can recover from the time change. So how does all this tie in with Kaley? Remember, Kaley's most recently announce project, Role Play, will start shooting in early 2022, about the time, or just before Karl would be leaving for Europe. They might not have seen each other for most of the first half of 2022, and when you add in his being gone and her being gone, this year, it gives a lot of support to their careers pulling them in different directions. Finally, if you add up the the weeks above, you are short about eight weeks. Well, in Michigan, he competed for there weeks, there was a break, then competed for two weeks. That break was eight weeks long, and took place from midish July until early September. About the eight weeks just before their announcement of their separating.

  48. Not just hiatus time. The actors on the show would have to be in the building for ~26-34 hours a week (depending on how long a couple of things took (special costumes, pre-shoots, etc). And only about half that time was them being on set. That would give Kaley a lot of time to do work on other things versus the night and early morning shoots she is having to do these days. There's also a big time difference between being the executive producer and number one on the call sheet, versus being number three on the call sheet, in an ensemble. Add in the two weeks on, one week off schedule and there is a lot of free time for a sitcom actor.

  49. I have to think that having that beautiful new home and everything, then finding yourself alone on your third anniversary had to be a eye opener for Kaley that their marriage was more like two ships passing each other in the night. So, just like Tensor said, they may have just discussed it, decided it wasn’t going to get any better and decided to end it.
