'Andi Mack' To Tackle Gun Safety In Special Episodes This Season

'Andi Mack' To Tackle Gun Safety In Special Episodes This Season

Andi Mack has tackled a lot of important issues over the course of three seasons – but now its’ about to tackle gun safety in two special upcoming episodes.

The two-ep story arc was developed under the consultancy of the child development experts at The Brady Center and Hollywood, Health & Society, a program of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center.

The episodes include a public service announcement about gun safety, airing Friday, November 16th and November 30th on Disney Channel.

The storyline illustrates peer pressure and a true test of character for Cyrus (Joshua Rush) when T.J. (Luke Mullen) and his group of friends unexpectedly invite Cyrus to join their unsupervised target practice.

VP of Current Series at Disney Channels Worldwide, Kory Lunsford, said that the episode was “inspired by a tragedy that occurred in the family of one of the series writers and, with thoughtful care and expertise, the entire Andi Mack team delivered a story that can provide a means for kids, their families and teachers to open the lines of communication about peer pressure and the dangers of unsupervised guns.”

Creator Terri Minsky added, “Our show is meant to entertain kids, yet we also want to help them make sense of a very complicated world, to make them feel safe and confident to talk to parents and trusted adults about gun safety.”

Keo adds, “It meant a lot that what you do on the show, they recognize that, so it meant a lot for me and I am grateful for [Evanna]. I am thankful.”

Evanna also reacted to seeing Keo cry a bit on camera after first achieving the semi-finals, and now the finals.

“That was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen,” she shared. “We’ve worked so hard. … I’m so thankful for our followers and to [Keo] for being such a special human being. I think a lot of the votes are for him because everyone’s like, ‘We like Keo so much! We want him in the finale!’ He so deserves it.”

Milo Manheim Does Get Nervous Thinking About Becoming The Youngest Male Winner on 'DWTS'

Milo Manheim and Witney Carson completely killed it during the semi-finals on Dancing With The Stars last night – and now they’re going to the finals!

The 17-year-old actor will join Evanna Lynch, Bobby Bones and Alexis Ren in the finals next week and by the sound of it, the weight of possibly being the youngest male winner ever on the show is getting to him.

“I get nervous about it,” Milo shared with TV Insider. “When I first started, I was very intimidated being the youngest person.”

He added, “Not being able to jump into a conversation right away. I thought people were looking at me like the little kid, but now that I made it this far they realize my age is not going to hold me back. I’m just as strong as a competitor as anyone else.”

Still though, Milo thinks that any one of the finalists could win the title and mirrored ball trophy.

Gabi DeMartino Opens Up About Living With Hashimoto's Disease & Defends Her Instagram Story Post

Gabi DeMartino has been battling Hashimoto’s Disease for quite a while and opened up this week about finally feeling like herself again.

After snapping a pic of her being back in her normal size on her Instagram Stories, some fans called the 23-year-old influencer out for promoting being skinny over being healthy – however, that was hardly the case.

Gabi revealed her battle with the disease over two years ago. The disease, which Gigi Hadid also has, is the inflammation of the thyroid, which causes a leak resulting in excess thyroid hormones and some of the symptoms include fatigue and unexplained weight gain.

“It’s a good goal for me because that was / is my healthy weight & what i am naturally without the hashimotos disease ive been fighting everyday for the last 2.5 yrs,” she wrote to a fan on Twitter. “If u watch my vlogs youd know i gained 25 lbs in the last 2.5 yrs from a disease & finally am beating it xo.”

We’re glad that Gabi is back at her healthy weight and that she’s coming out on top of the disease.
