While And Just Like That... character Steve Brady is partially deaf in the HBO Max series, actor David Eigenberg is also experiencing hearing loss in reality.

Writers Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky recently explained that Steve has limited hearing amid Eigenberg's real-life experience.

"When [showrunner] Michael Patrick [King] reconnected with David Eigenberg about the show, the very first thing that David said was, 'I got hearing aids.' It was literally what he led with," said Zuritsky, per Vanity Fair. "That actually wound up being Steve's tone about his aging [in the show]."

‘This Is Us’ Boss Looks Ahead to Series Finale: “I Hope Everything Will Have Been Answered”

  ‘This Is Us’ Boss Looks Ahead to Series Finale: “I Hope Everything Will Have Been Answered” Over the course of its six-season tenure, This Is Us has become known for its unexpected twists and turns. As the series prepares to come to a close, showrunner Dan Fogelman and the cast confirm there are still many surprises to come. On Tuesday evening, the cast and crew gathered at Paramount Studios in Hollywood to celebrate the show’s sixth and final season, premiering Jan. 4 on NBC.

In a conversation with And Just Like That writers Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritzky on Thursday, the women—who wrote on the original Sex and the City series—defended the show’ s Steve storyline . For starters, Steve is partially because David Eigenberg is actually battling hearing loss in real life . “When [showrunner] Michael Patrick [King] reconnected with David Eigenberg about the show, the very first thing that David said was, ‘I got hearing aids.’ It was literally what he led with,” says Zuritsky.

Miranda, whose marriage to Steve Brady ( David Eigenberg ) is feeling stale, is charmed by Diaz’ s freewheeling attitude and confident swagger. He said the problem is that Che feels more like a caricature than a real person. “From using the ‘Woke Moment’ button on their godawful podcast to using online lingo in verbal conversations, Che seems like they are a manifestation of an overzealous conservative who thinks nonbinary people are a particularly irritating Twitter account come to life ,” he said.

While some fans have questioned the choice, Zuritsky reiterated that no one behind the scenes is out to get Steve, sharing that instead, "Everyone on the show, every single person, loves David Eigenberg as a human being. We love him as an actor. We love Steve. We are really invested in the Steve-ness of him. He's so full of life, and the Steves out there are good guys."

Still, Rottenberg added that it's important for Miranda's (Cynthia Nixon) story to show "another reality out there, which a lot of people go through — the reevaluations and transitions in life."

Steve's presence on the show is appearing to dwindle as Miranda unapologetically cheats on Steve, and tells Sarah Jessica Parker's Carrie Bradshaw about her failed attempt to improve romance with her longtime love.

Flaubert wrote this story for his old friend and “fellow troubadour” George Sand. It’ s the story of Félicité, an old servant-woman, and the diminishing loves in her life , the final one being a (live – at first) parrot. It has a sombre novelistic density, and is touching and tender, comic and grotesque. This is Chekhov’ s longest short story and one of the very few he wrote in the first-person singular. It’ s the autobiography of a young man in provincial Russia struggling to live up to his lofty ideals and being brought down by life ’ s random contingencies.

There' s no doubt that listening to your favourite music can instantly put you in a good mood. But scientists are now discovering that music can do more for you than just lift your spirits. Research is showing it has a variety of health benefits. How it helps: For many people suffering from memory loss the spoken language has become meaningless.

Remember The Real World? Netflix has released its own spin on the famous reality show with Twentysomethings: Austin. The 12-episode series, which is now streaming, follows eight strangers who left behind their lives to start something new in Texas. The group lives in two houses next door to each other — four men in one and four women in the other. Each house is designed similarly, and the strangers share a backyard, which includes a pool and fire pit. Unlike The Real World, which MTV has aired 33 seasons of since 1992, each of the eight individuals gets their own rooms, they’re allowed to use their phones, laptops, cars and yes, they’re on dating apps. (In fact, two of them match while living next door to each other!) These singles are all in different points in their lives, even though they’re all around the same age. Abbey Humphreys, for example, is only 25 and is fresh off a divorce. She also is open about being completely broke and job hunting. During one episode, she’s shown going on a job interview at a local bar and ultimately, not being a good enough bartender to get it. While there is a bit of partying that goes on when the group goes out, Twentysomethings: Austin includes a bit more of the actual real world, including emotional moments between the group and talks of politics. Isha Punja, a designer from California, admits early on that she’s attracted to Bruce Stephenson, who helms from South Carolina. However, due to where he’s from, she immediately expects that he’s a Republican — and isn’t willing on pursuing anything. (She’s proven wrong pretty quickly as he shows just how accepting he is of other communities.) She also is interested in Michael Fractor, the 23-year-old virgin who she claims is not her type but is the “cousin” to her type. The comedian is completely unaware of how to flirt with women or really talk to any of the roommates, making for great TV. One thing this show does not have is a villain, something usually shown on other similar reality shows. Instead, this group gets along and supports each other through the things that most twenty-somethings are experiencing. Scroll down to get to know the cast:

In episode seven, Miranda informed Carrie, "I tried to revive my sex life with Steve the other day." Suggesting their marriage has no hope, she added, "I'm afraid the patient is nonresponsive."

The episode also featured a dating fail for Carrie as she embarked on her new journey following the death of her husband Mr. Big (Chris Noth).

"Grown couples grow apart, and people come to epiphanies about what their spouse is or isn't fulfilling for them," Rottenberg continued. "Miranda's story was very representative of a certain path that a lot of women find themselves on."

"We didn't set out to make virtuous characters necessarily," added Zuritsky. "Even beloved people have crises. Even moral, generally wonderful people make choices that aren't necessarily admirable or virtuous. But they do them anyway because they're going through something, or they're working through a crisis."

Sad stories will make you cry, but they will also make you contemplate life in a way that can be very rewarding. A strong sad story will make you feel less alone—more aware of the fact that no one’ s experience of this world is all rainbows and unicorns. We all have to trudge through the darker aspects of existence. It’ s a story filled with love and loss , and finding love again, and with characters that you find yourself becoming so completely attached to that you refuse to accept anything but a happy ending.

Zuritsky questioned if fans' outcry over Steve's storyline has more to do with a "lopsided gender issue…you feel angry at her and more protective of him."

"Sometimes your friends make choices that you might not agree with or that might be concerning, but you sort of have to let them make their own choices. Sometimes it's hard," she explained.

But all hope isn't lost for Steve. Zuritsky suggested that viewers would get to see him express his true feelings about his own desires. "You're going to get that scene," she said.
