Day 28: Karaoke

How is it possible that I come from a musical theater background and yet I’ve never done karaoke?  My friend Jonathan, who is a very accomplished singer/songwriter, thought this was just an abomination so he organized a fun karaoke night. We went to the type of karaoke place that offers private rooms. I really enjoyed this because we could sing our…

Day 27: The Gretchen Wieners

My good friend Danny Franzese and I were in the film Mean Girls together. He played Damien and I played Gretchen Wieners. When he told me that his friend plays on a mens kickball team named after my character, I just had to see this for myself! Over the weekend, Danny and I had the…

Day 26: No Makeup

Today’s post is dedicated to all the women who support me, especially the young ladies.

Day 22: Donny & Marie Live Vegas Show

I’m in Vegas kicking off my birthday celebration with my amazing sister Crissy! When I was on Marie Osmonds talk show last week, she surprised me with tickets to her live show with Donny here in Vegas at the Flamingo Showroom. The show was phenomenal. I had no idea that they’ve both performed in such…
