Kate Hudson’s Hot Happy Life

Friday, September 13th, 2013

This is the third time I’ve interviewed the awesome Kate Hudson.

The first was for a Glamour cover in which she and Matthew McConaughey interviewed each other. (Hello, fun). The second was Kate Hudson on the cover of Marie Claire Australiaand I have always loved that black and white cover they did of her. (Gorgeous, right?). And now, for the April 2013 issue of Glamour, I got to meet with her again, this time at her home in the Pacific Palisades. As usual, I was impressed with her warm and optimistic attitude.

To keep it interesting, Kate was also being interviewed by The Fundamentalist director Mira Nair (who also directed the amazing Monsoon Wedding), as this was Kate’s latest film. Check out parts of the conversation here: April 2013 cover story for Glamour: Kate Hudson: Sexy, Strong Kate.

Queen Latifah’s Dos & Don’ts

Thursday, September 12th, 2013

I got to interview Queen Latifah about five years ago for the cover of Glamour magazine, and now, every time someone asks me who my favorite interviews have been over the years, Latifah comes up in the top tier. I found her inspiring, wise and hilarious the first time, so when I got the chance to speak with her again recently, I jumped at it!

Here’s our chat for the October 2013 issue of Glamour magazine, Queen Latifah Shares Her Dos & Don’ts of Life, in which she shares her plans for her new talk show and gives her Do or Don’t take on some of the latest fall trends.

Well, I got my laugh minimum in for the season in when I got to interview the wise, warm and hilarious star of Veep, Julia Louis-Dreyfus for the cover the July/August issue of Health magazine.

A sample of her advice made me laugh so hard, it earned its way to the title of the piece: Here is some of our interview, you can read her fresh take on healthy living here on Health.com: Julia Louis-Dreyfus: Push the Worry Down, and Pull the Spanx Up.”

I hope you enjoy her as much as I did!

Deborah Ann Woll, GLAMOUR

One of the most moving pieces I’ve worked on lately is this personal story of True Blood star Deborah Ann Woll and her boyfriend, comic E.J. Scott.

GLAMOUR July 2013

As the couple shares in the July 2013 issue of Glamour magazine, E.J. suffers from choroideremia, or CHM, a rare genetic disease that causes blindness. And I got to sit down with them both as they shared their story. They are both wonderful, warm and funny people who are dealing with this the best way they know how.

You can read the full piece here on Glamour.com: True Blood‘s Deborah Ann Woll’s Boyfriend’s Fight Against Blindness.

At the end of the piece, there is information on how to donate and support chm research to help cure those afflicted and stop this from happening to others in the future.
