It’s almost here! On Sunday night at 8/7 c on ABC Family my original Christmas musical The Mistle-Tones will be making its premiere. This is such a fun movie that the whole fam can watch together – I know the McDermott clan will be tuning in together 

This movie is my big American Idol meets Dancing with the Stars moment with a whole lotta sequins sprinkled on top. It’s Mean Girls (with me at the helm) mixed with Glee and it was so much fun to film. It’s not often that Donna Martin gets to play the bad girl! I loved all my co-stars like Tia Mowry, a fellow mom warrior, but my fave co-star had to be my very own rescue pup Mitzi (don’t miss her on screen debut as pupista Vixen decked in faux fur and sparkly gowns of her own). This movie has all your fave Christmas songs sung by the cast, super fun dance numbers, fabulous costumes and tons of laughs.

Here’s another sneak peek of what’s in store on Sunday:

To prepare for the premiere, get The Mistle-Tones soundtrack ! It’s so much fun to listen to with the kids…Liam and Stella love singing along to their favorite holiday songs. Plus they love the fact that mom has a Christmas album! You can pick up the soundtrack here – it’s the perfect way to bring a little holiday cheer into your home!

In the movie I got to wear some pretty fabulous costumes which was a major perk. Every villain-ess should be impeccably dressed, and my character was no exception. Here’s a little peek of me as the deliciously evil and uber-fab Marci. More on this later today…


Every diva needs faux fur legwarmers


Fur-tastically chic


My pup Mitzi perfectly accessorized this gorg floor length gown


Marci was definitely on Santa’s naughty list having her Marilyn moment…

I had such a good time filming this movie – it was so much fun for this mom to get all decked out and play diva! I never get offered the villain roles, and I must say I embraced every minute of playing mean girl Marci, wearing head to toe faux fur, strutting my stuff, and belting out Mariah! 

I would love for all of you guys to watch this Sunday and let me know what you think! I really hope you enjoy watching The Mistle-Tones as much as I enjoyed filming it.

What Christmas songs do you look forward to hearing during the holidays?

And don’t forget to tune in on Sunday to ABC Family at 8/7 c!
