    Hi! A longer bio is at the Speaking link, but basically...


    I’m a professional talker, writer, & shopper.



    As a talker, I’m an award-winning, seasoned on-air lifestyle and entertainment host with game shows, talk shows, news, and hundreds of one-on-one celebrity interviews behind my belt. I've grilled Oscar the Grouch about his trash can, bonded over winning $250,000 on Who Wants to be a Millionaire? with Queen Latifah, and given my opinion on kid leashes, spankings, sports bras, and more. (Scroll up for clips.)


    As a writer, In 2023, I'm writing and producing multiple unscripted and scripted film & television projects for a variety of networks and production companies (titles and networks to be announced soon, hopefully). I'm also a USA Today and New York Times best-selling author, with multiple books published for children, teens, and adults.


    As a shopper, for almost two decades I've been a product reviewer, currently enjoying myself at The New York Times, where I'm the health and grooming expert for our product review vertical, Wirecutter. I shop for the best products and then I bathe, vacuum my hair, and take care of my skin. It is a dream beat and I work with some of the most incredible people in the world.
