A Family on the Run

Monday, February 20th, 2017

Every once in a while, I interview people who are extraordinary in ways that aren’t measured by TV ratings, movie opening weekends, or social media likes. And this story is one of my latest (and favorites) to that end.

Here is the story of the Gonzales family in Los Angeles, for the February 2017 issue of Good Housekeeping: Everyone in This Family Wants to Run 100 Miles.

It’s the story of a family of four who—through tragedy and kindness—became a family of nine. And when they discovered the organization Marathon Kids, which encourages kids and families to run together, they became closer, healthier and happier as one very (very, very big) family.

It was truly an honor to sit down with this wonderful family as they shared their story. Check it out here on the Good Housekeeping site. Everyone in This Family Wants to Run 100 Miles. It’s inspiring in more ways than one.

I love Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix. And, now that I got to sit down with its star for the cover of the New York Post‘s ALEXA fashion special, I love Ellie Kemper, too.

Screen Shot 2016-05-04 at 11.39.49 AMHere’s my interview with the warm and hilarious actress in the latest issue as she talks about her career, her husband, her off-set style (which is about as casual as it gets), her experiences working with show creator Tina Fey, and some of the funny and inspiring moments she’s had at work along the way.
