Event: “Orange is the New Black” PaleyFest Panel

WHERE Dolby Theatre at Hollywood & Highland Center, Hollywood, CA
WHEN March 15, 2014


Tonight I was so excited to attend the PaleyFest panel for “Orange is the New Black”. The addictive, binge-watch-it-in-one-day Netflix series is groundbreaking, funny, and touching. And, also, it was awesome to see, like, twelve badass women on the stage tonight. Girl power!

The cast was very adorable and well-spoken and you could sense a camaraderie among them. Even Jason Biggs, who kept joking about being a dude minority (and called himself “Pie Fucker”, so… I love him). Afterward they stuck around to sign autographs for fans and they were all very nice! Laura Prepon was being called in a million directions but she stayed on stage for a while trying to sign for everyone and pose for pictures.

Taylor Schilling called me “sweetheart” because I let her keep my Sharpie to sign everyone’s stuff. So, look out Crazy Eyes — I think I’m her prison wife now! 😉 In retrospect, I should have asked her what Zac Efron’s arms feel like.

All of the cast was gorgeous, friendly, kind, and seemed happy to be there.

I feel very lucky to have met them at this point, after their spectacular first season and on the verge of the second season (can’t wait til June!)… I feel like things will only get better for this show and its cast!
