"awkward Pete"

Awkward Pete, their 22 year old son, serves as Kanan’s Rules sound engineer, producer, editor and all-around badass. Awkward Pete is quick to chime in, “The first time I met Sean he told me that I didn’t have to call him ‘Daddy’ right away cuz it took my mom a week. That’s when I knew the meaning of the word awkward. Naturally, I upped the stakes and showed him ‘Lonely Island’s Mother Lover’ (a Saturday Night Live skit starring Justin Timberlake and Andy Samberg as friends who seduce each other’s mother). Sean laughed hysterically and I knew we would be tight. When Sean sent it to his mom, I knew we would be family.”

BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL’s Sean Kanan and wife, Michele Kanan co-host the internet radio show, Kanan’s Rules. Every Wednesday at 8pm PST the show offers listeners a glimpse into the life of daytime television’s bad boy as the husband and wife duo share tips, secrets, stories, opinions, and witty banter. Kanan’s Rules reveals the trials, tribulations, obstacles, achievements and triumphs of the couple’s day-to-day relationship. Almost no topic will be off limits as they discuss careers, romance, politics, religion, current events, the latest trends and the challenges and joys that come with raising a blended family of teenagers in Hollywood.      

When asked to comment on the Kanan's Rules show topics, Sean explains, “Five years ago I lived in a bachelor pad in the Hollywood Hills. I came and went as I pleased. Now I live with a wife, 5 kids, 2 dogs and lots of estrogen. The culture shock alone provides enough topics to last the next ten years!” Michele is quick to chime in, “Despite the learning curve, we make a great team. Let's be honest, living with Sean is like a carnival ride sometimes because I never know where we're gonna be or how we will get stuff done. We have lots of shenanigans, but we manage to excel at our careers and more importantly, at being a family circus.” 

But Sean wasn't the only one experiencing culture shock, Michele was living in the suburbs, carpooling, and running a successful medical practice and day spa. One day she decided to make a movie and fast forward, Michele finds herself and her teenagers living with the bad boy of daytime and producing a movie.

Heavily laced with humor, the couple welcomes guests from the world of Hollywood, celebrities, experts in various fields, friends and other interesting personalities that may drop in to join the conversation and share their experiences and insight about navigating in Hollywood.
