CLEVELAND — On Wednesday’s Lunch Break with Jay Crawford, we’re chewing on Emma Watson’s focus on herself over a romantic relationship, the launch (and crash) of Chrissy Teigen's "Cravings" website, the return of Aldi’s wildly popular Advent calendars, and mental health awareness.
During an interview with British Vogue, Watson talked about admitting to feeling stressed and anxious about her upcoming 30th birthday.
"If you have not built a home, if you do not have a husband, if you do not have a baby, and you are turning 30, and you're not in some incredibly secure, stable place in your career, or you're still figuring things out, there's just this incredible amount of anxiety," Watson said.
She said that while it took her some time, she’s now “very happy being single," which she calls "being self-partnered.”
In an ongoing effort to destigmatize and bring awareness to mental health issues, former chef and co-founder of Crop Restaurant Group Steve Schimoler shared his story with 3News’ Hollie Strano in a new series called “Secret Recipes.” Hollie will join us on set to talk about her conversation with Steve, over an afternoon preparing his signature “Kinda Carbonara” pasta dish.
