    Hi, y'all! As a broadcast journalist, I've interviewed celebrities, talked about current events, and hosted talk shows on both television and online. My four years of on-air hosting at HuffPost Live and on FOX TV's short-lived So-Me talk show earned me a 2016 GLAAD Award nomination and some very interesting fan mail. Prior to that, I was a spokeswoman for brands like Kotex and Dale Carnegie.


    My writing has made The New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists and has also garnered an NAACP Image Award nomination, a Mom's Choice Award, and a National Parenting Publications Award. Over the years, I've been a contributor to and columnist for an eclectic variety of newspapers, magazines, and websites.


    While I live in Los Angeles right now, I'm originally from Martinsville, a small town in southern Virginia known for NASCAR. Every summer, I take my college sweetheart, actor Rupak Ginn (Royal Pains, Highland), and our two kids back to Virginia for a bit so that they can get a taste of the good life.


    Fun Facts:

    • 15 years ago, I appeared on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? with Regis Philbin and won $250,000.  This would be my first time tripping on national television.  
    • I also went on Let's Make a Deal and only won $100, but connected with Wayne afterward and collaborated on an adorable, if unpublished, parenting project together.  
    • Right after graduating from Harvard, I became Miss Virginia and won the swimsuit competition at Miss America.  This would be my second time tripping on national television.
    • I ate my placenta and wrote about it for The New York Times in a piece virally heralded as the "NYT Headline of the Century."
    • There's lots more, but this is already too long, so reach out if you want to chat!
  • My latest book is out! PREGNANCY, OMG! is the first-ever photographic guide to pregnancy.


    "An unflinching look at pregnancy issues not often talked about, including depression, varicose veins — and even lactating third boobs."



    "Redd decided to write her own tome on sharing your body with someone else for approximately 40 to 42 weeks, and we’re all better off for her efforts. From swollen fingers to blue vulvas, no topic is off limits."



    "Ultimate how-to for anyone who’s got a bun in the oven." - OKMagazine
