I'm excited to announce that I've just been cast in a brand new show for the CW called "Valentine".  It's an hour-long, romantic comedy from creator Kevin Murphy (Desperate Housewives, Reaper) that focuses on mythological gods and goddesses of love and war. I play Kate Providence, a (human) romance novelist who stumbles upon a mysterious woman (Jaime Murray) and ends up being enlisted to help her and her mythological brood put soul mates together.  We will start airing mid-September so keep an eye out for it!  

The cast is a lot of fun- Jaime (Dexter), Kris Polaha (Miss Guided), Robert Baker (Leatherheads), Greg Ellis (Pirates of the Caribbean, 24) and Autum Reeser (The O.C.).  Since I don't have any pictures from set yet (we just started this week) here's a dorky one of my in my trailer playing around with photo booth
And a picture of some gorgeous congratulatory flowers!!
I'll update as more is announced!

Courage Family goes Hollywood

Have baby, will travel! Rebecca and her husband Sebastian came to LA to celebrate her 30th birthday and brought their adorable 1-year-old Emerson.  I became affectionately known as "Aunt Stinky" and couldn't be happier with that.

Rebecca's big night out at Area (we got a very trustworthy sitter and cut a rug!)  A broken ankle couldn't stop Virginia and Rochelle trekked up from Manhattan Beach to cheers Bec.  A very good time had by all- thank you Lord Courage!!
Nothing like a big birthday breakfast after a night of dancing...
Sweet Emerson in her swing at the Malibu Country Mart.  Shes such a big girl already!
Just the girls having lunch at Art's deli- Emerson eats EVERYTHING!  Its fun to gage her reactions to various foods.  Thanks for lunch bec!
An awesome trip - I cant wait to have you all back again!  Especially my sweet little Em!  Aunt Stinky misses you!

"Dog Sees God"

I just closed an amazing play at the Hudson backstage theater called "Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead".  We ran to great reviews for an extended 8 weeks and had so much fun!  

This is Joseph Porter- our Charlie Brown of sorts
