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. I’m tweeted constantly by young women, usually in middle school or high school, saying things like, “I’ll never be pretty like you, or have hair like yours. I’ll never be ‘perfect’ like you, I hate my hair, body, face, etc.”…

Day 25: Reconnect with an old friend

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…

I’ve watched Richard Simmons my whole life on various TV programs inspiring people to get moving and live healthier lifestyles. He personally teaches the class about three times…
