Ryan and Val talked about the most popular resolutions and how to stick with them throughout the year! Plus, Jan. 6 is National Take Down Your Christmas Tree Day! Are people really chopping down the holiday spirit? Ryan and Val also gave the late Hollywood giant Betty White her flowers after her hometown, Oak Park, declared Jan. 17 "Betty White Day."

Pillow Talk

Can parents be bugaboos? In this week's Pillow Talk, Windy City Weekend hosts gave advice to a viewer, Chico, who claims his mother won't stop calling him.

Chico wrote: "My mother is going through a rough patch, which is normal, but now it's starting to impact my marriage. She calls me four or five times a day at work when she knows I am busy.

When I have told her I need my space and I will call her soon, she starts to text my wife asking where I am, what I am doing and when I am going to call her. To this point, the only time she has reached out to my wife, is to ask about me. My wife feels caught in the middle and wonders why my mom never asks about my wife and only wonders what I am doing. What do I do?"
