Sunday was most certainly a date day (I awoke to flowers and breakfast in bed!), but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to swing by the tents to interview YouTube beauty gurus Elle (center) and Blair. The sisters, who are 21 and 16 respectively, have garnered an astonishing following…and are totally charming and poised, to boot.
At last night’s Women in Social Media Panel, with (from left) organizer Neha, Casey of CaseyCulture, Meghan of ChickRx, and Alexa of Paperless Post. I used to have considerable difficulty with public speaking - hence the flushed-neck-covering scarf that doesn’t quite go with my outfit - but my stage fright seems to have vanished entirely. This is honestly a huge accomplishment for me - a year ago, I could never have pictured myself having the confidence to stand up and speak in front of a room full of such accomplished women.
On Wednesday, February 3, from 7:30-9, I’ll be speaking on the Women in Social Media Panel (part of Social Media Week). I am so excited to be on a panel with such talented, remarkable women (I mean, have you checked out Alexa’s company, Paperless Post? It’s incredible).

In February of 2007, I was hired for what might be the most bizarre, amazing job I’ve ever had. If you read Gawker, you might remember coverage of “The Cat People" during Fashion Week? That was me (with brown hair)!
Trovata hired me and another actor named Clint to take on the roles of “Elisabeta and Nicolae Petrescu,” siblings from some obscure Eastern European royal family who had arrived in New York to “take Fashion Week by storm.” Basically, what they did was make us famous socialites overnight: they hired a fancy PR team to get us in wherever we wanted to go, and drove us around town in a white vintage Rolls Royce accompanied by bodyguards and a “cat handler” (we carried a very smelly pussycat with us wherever we went). The theory was that this would get more press for the brand than a simple (and expensive) fashion show…and it worked! I even had HARVEY WEINSTEIN come up to me, wanting to meet “the new socialite in town.” Of course, I “couldn’t speak English,” so I just babbled something to him in a made-up language and escaped back into my publicist’s comforting arms. Eek.
It probably didn’t hurt that Anna Wintour was in on the whole thing.

One of the segments from the BetterTV shoot I did in October. In this video, I show you how to make a delicious (and healthy) butternut squash soup. This recipe is based on the one my mom has been using for years - she makes a batch literally every single week during the winter months, so that she always has something around for a light lunch or a snack if company stops by.

See that little red plastic-y thing sitting on the stool next to me? Apparently the guest who appeared before me was a doctor who performs hymenoplasties, and that was a tool he used in his demonstration. I’ll just let your imagination take flight.

This morning, Tara Bohan from Exclusiv (a German entertainment TV show) stopped by my place to interview me about the latest developments in the John Travolta story; yesterday, he publicly confirmed for the first time that his son Jett, who died in January at the age of 16, suffered from autism. Scientology does not recognize autism as a disease, and there is speculation that Travolta’s beliefs may have affected his son’s treatment (or lack thereof), possibly contributing to his death. This is just such a heartbreaking story, made even more heartbreaking by the fact that the family is having their faith challenged (and, in my opinion, rightly so) at a time when they need it more than ever. This case will undoubtedly turn out to be a major turning point for the church…it’s a pretty tremendous blow to Scientology to have one of its most high-profile members publicly invalidate its belief system.

Finally, my MSNBC appearance (this is the second one). I’m not the savviest when it comes to the web, so yes, it took me three days to upload a video. But I think I have it down now, thanks to Meghan’s very patient play-by-play. In any case, in this clip I discuss Michael Moore’s new film, Capitalism: A Love Story, which explores the root causes of the global financial meltdown and hits theaters October 2nd.
