I was lucky enough to do another episode of "Adam Ruins Everything" for TruTV. I love this show and I love the people who put it together. Smart, funny and kind. My favorite three adjectives. Oh, also delicious. Because that's my fourth favorite adjective. Watch this show, he DOES ruin things but just to make you smarter! 


Just got to do a delish part on the new Fox show "The Mick" starring the super funny and kind Kaitlin Olson. We shot in Brentwood at a GIGANTIC house that could honestly double as a posh resort hotel. HUGE I tell you. Any who, they were a really fun group of people and it was honestly a completely delightful experience. Hope I'm asked back. Coming soon to Fox!


I've spent the last couple of weeks doing my kid's favorite show "Adam Ruins Everything" on Tru TV. A lovely group of people most of whom are still under the age of consent. KIDDING! They are just all younger than me. But they are all smart, funny, hardworking and a delight to be around. Be on the look out for it!


Ab Fab: The Movie is nearly here! Come summer you'll be able to have a glass of Bolly and FINALLY check back in with Eddie and Pats! 


Just did a wee part on a new show called Heartbeat starring Melissa George on NBC. What a lovely group of people to work with! Especially Shelley Conn and the fab director Allison Liddi-Brown. Had a wonderful time with a great script! Watch for this show!!

So I'm off to the UK to shoot AbFab the Movie! I'm very excited and can't wait to see the J's and of course my darling husband, Chris Ryan. The script is, obviously, hilarious and I'm so grateful that 20 some-odd years on we're still doing this incredibly delicious show. Cheers, thanks a lot! 

Well, such a delight to shoot 2 Broke Girls! What a wonderful cast and crew and such a ridiculously funny script! I honestly had the time of my life and I can't wait to see how it turns out. I play a cult leader (type casting, I know) and it was really so fun to act with these girls and get to know them a bit. Love them! Plus, Jennifer Coolidge, need I say more? GENIUS.

So I was lucky enough to do an episode of the hilarious Kevin From Work. They had me at the title alone but luckily I had a fantastic time shooting this show. Lovely people to work with and I'm keeping my fingers crossed the show gets picked up.

I'm off to do an episode of Devious Maids for Lifetime. Some truly talented folk created and work on this show so I'm very excited! I have to go to Atlanta to tape it so that's a bit of an adventure as I've never been to Georgia before. I'll let you know how it goes! 

My VEEP episode airs next week! Sunday, May 24th on HBO. If you haven't watched this show before...well...what's wrong with you? It's hilarious and honestly one of the best shows on television. I had THE BEST time doing this show and would do it for free if they'd have me. Watch it!

So, I filmed a wee part for Brooklyn Nine-Nine. They all couldn't have been nicer! Terry Crews is a great big beautiful man! I had a lovely time and if you're not already watching this show, get on it!  Such kind and such talented people!

Went to the Santa Barbara International Film Festival for the premiere of A Better You! Had a swell time with Morgan and Matt Walsh, Horatio Sanz, Brian Huskey, Erinn Hayes and a bunch of other super talented people involved in the film. You've got to see this movie as soon as you can! So funny and fun.

Well, happy 2015! Who knows what this year has to offer but I seriously hope all good things for the lot of you!

I'm very excited to let you know I shot an episode of VEEP in December! I love this show. I love Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I love Matt Walsh. I love Tony Hale. Plus I love everybody else that has anything to do with the show. Here's hoping I rose to the occasion. It was truly one of the best times I've ever had as a guest on a show. I never wanted it to end! Oh, extra bonus, my friend Kathy Najimy is also in this episode!! Unfortunately our characters never interact. I'll let you know when it airs.

Just a reminder to take a listen to The Momo Show, the podcast I do with my friend Morgan Walsh. Nothing fancy just some chat with us or us and another person. We've had some great guests so take a look at The Momo Show page here or click on the link up there.

Well, I just had the great good fortune to work with my pal Melissa Peterman on her ABC Family show Baby Daddy! I worked with her many years ago when she was just a wee bairn and it's so great to see her again. I'll also mention how truly funny and talented the others (Jean-Luc Bilodeau, Chelsea Kane, Tahj Mowry and Derek Theler) on this show are! An added plus, it was directed by Michael Lembeck! I worked with him on Mad About You way back when and it's lovely to work with him again. 

So, really happy to report I did a sweet role on the new NBC show Marry Me with the hilarious Casey Wilson and Ken Marino. Such a fabulously funny show and the other cast members are crazy talented as well. People like....Tymberlee Hill, Dan Bucatinsky, Tim Meadows, John Gemberling and Sarah Wright. AND it was directed by Fred Savage! He's all grown up, a fabulous director and honestly looks NO different than he did in The Wonder Years. You MUST watch this show. We need new comedies! OH and also, I'll be on it.

Just finished shooting a part in ABC's new mid-season replacement show Members Only. Was delighted to work with the incredibly kind and gorgeous Natalie Zea. You will LOVE this show. I promise. I'll post the date when I find out when it airs.

Hey, guess what? I'm in Ogunquit, Maine! I'm doing summer stock at the Ogunquit Playhouse. Yes, I'm playing Miss Lynch in Grease and having a blast. It all happened really quickly but I've never done summer stock so I hitched up the wagons and came east. We run from May 22 to June 21, so if you're in or around southern Maine come on over!

I will be performing Nora and Delia Ephron's Love, Loss, and What I Wore at The Coyote Stageworks for a 2 week run opening March 28 and running thru April 6th. I am so excited to work with this company and lets face it there are worse places to spend a few weeks! Tickets are available here. Come on out!

I did a swell and funny part on Melissa and Joey on ABC Family! I gotta say I LOVE ABC Family, they did the last pilot I was on and they are delightful. PLUS I got to work with my old pal Joe Lawrence! 

I was lucky enough to do a part on Bad Teacher. Coming soon on CBS. I got to work with Kristin Davis, Ryan Hansen, David Alan Grier, Caitlin Kimball and Karly Rothenberg! Also, my friend Bruce Newman is the casting director and my darling Erica Rivinoja writes on it. This show is hilarious! I can't wait till it airs. I'll keep you posted.

Delighted to have shot a part on Super Fun Night! I love Rebel Wilson! Genius funny!  I played opposite the uber talented Alan Ruck and the incredibly funny Kate Jenkinson, so...heaven! The only saddish part is no scenes with Rebel. But worked with Christine Gernon, who I worked with on Ab Fab! She's a fantastic director and it was so lovely to see her again. It's the Christmas show so hopefully you'll see it EVERY CHRISTMAS! 

So happy to have done a little part on Mike and Molly! I think Melissa McCarthy is the future of comedy. Also the delicious Billy Gardell! A nicer, funnier person you couldn't hope for!  Plus, my beloved Swoozie Kurtz! I did a play, Minneola Twins, at the Roundabout with Swoozie and I'm crazy about her. To top it off, Bill Daly writes on this show and I love him, platonically.  So much fun to work with Melissa McCarthy and tell her she is a genius. Ta da!

I'm lucky enough to be a guest star on Hart of Dixie! Even luckier to be performing opposite two talented and gorgeous menfolk, Tim Matheson and Cress Williams! My episode is called "Take This Job and Shove It!"

You can see me on an episode of NTSF: SD: SUV on Adult Swim this season with some FANTASTIC actors like; Xander Berkely, Jayma Mays and Eliza Dushku. I wear a feather in my hair...I'll say no more.    

I just shot a wee part in A Better You, a new film by Matt Walsh (UCB, VEEP, etc.) Starring Brian Huskey, with Morgan Walsh, Horatio Sanz, Erinn Hayes, Rob Huebel, Joe Lo Truglio, Seth Morris etc. It's an improv movie with some of the greats! SO fun to do! Be on the look out, I'll keep you updated with release dates.

Coming this holiday season, Holiday Road Trip on Ion TV. I love working with these people and vow to do a holiday movie every year from here on in.  Starring Ashley Scott and Patrick Muldoon. 

I did the first season of the deliciously funny Burning Love both on Yahoo and E!  But you have to watch all three. Julie's season with June Diane Raphael, again hilarious. Then there was the third season, Burning Love: Burning Down the House.  You will love this show if you haven't seen it and you already love it if you have.
