Carol was everything I’d hope she’d be—warm, real, sharp, funny and kind—and I got to hear her do her Tarzan yell in full throttle, so…yeah, it was a good day. We talked about her groundbreaking skit series The Carol Burnett Show, what she thinks of comedy today, and how nervous she is to give a speech (really!) when she accepts her SAG Life Achievement Award (airing January 30 on TNT and TBS at 8 pm EST).

You can read the full story here — Carol Burnett: First Lady of Comedy — on the Parade magazine site. I’ll be tuning in to watch her receive her well-earned due.

Kacey Musgraves: Gritty, Girly, Great

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

The July 2015 issue of Redbook magazine features my cover story with country singer and songwriter Kacey Musgraves.

KaceyMusgravesCOVERI’ve been listening to a preview of her new album, Pageant Material, for weeks now and loving it. So it was a joy to be able to sit down with Katy Perry’s favorite rising country star in Los Angeles, and talk about what’s gotten her to this point and what she wants out of life from here.

You can read some excerpts of the interview on the Redbook website: Country Superstar Kacey Musgraves Schools Us in How To Be Badass

And here’s a sample of how the story is being picked up by other celebrity news magazines around the country, including this People magazine piece.

One of my recent sit-downs was with actress and producer Ashley Tisdale for the June 2015 issue of Health magazine. HEALTHAshleyTisdaleCOVER1

The former High School Musical and Disney star is currently running her own production company—”Blondie Girl Productions”—and starring on the TBS comedy Clipped. Color me impressed by her energy, humor and can’t-lose attitude.

Check out the full cover interview called Ashley Tisdale’s Big New Life on the Health magazine website or grab an issue on stands.
