3 months postpartum. Nothing will stop me. It’s too much fun!! :)
Very excited to announce that I am writer/producer/host of an upcoming episode of Charlie David’s (Border2Border Productions) “OutSpoke” on OutTV in the new year. I was on set with Charlie and pitched an idea to him of doing an episode about families who are outside the box, based on my online magazine Alternative Families International (AlternativeFamiliesInternational.com) He loved it, and it has been greenlit by OutTV! Never stop dreaming, talking up your ideas and hoping!
Very excited to announce I will now be repped by Glickman-Alexander Talent Management. It's time for a change and we are all over the moon excited about all the projects that lay ahead!
We had a great time. Check my instagram @athenareich for some crazy videos (like that moment when we stole someone someone’s Emmy and posed with it on the red carpet. Meanwhile here’s some of the official PBS pics. While we didn’t win - we sure had a blast and of course it’s amazing to be nominated. Check out Vegas Baby on Netflix worldwide to see my story.
I had the pleasure of being on a panel on POP LIFE to talk about being an impersonator. Is it art? Imitation? When is it done well and when.. not so much? How did we get into this work and what’s it really like? Watch online below.
So excited that the movie I’m in is going to air on PBS again. And we are up for an Emmy on October 1st in NYC. Please share #infertilityawarenessRead More
We’re happy to share this great new essay by writer (& Lady Gaga impersonator) Athena Reich about her decision to use an egg & sperm donor for child #2. She’s a single mom and feels like she’s either crazy or brave (maybe both!) to expand her family without a partner; but she’s always imagined having 2 kids.
Athena hopes to meet a great woman to share her life with one day. For now, though, she doesn’t want to complicate the process, so she’s hooking up with men. (Even this surprises her! Maybe it’s the extra estrogen?!)
You may recognize Athena from the now Emmy-nominated documentary Vegas Baby or from our Toronto event.
Here’s her essay, new on pregnantish: Am I Crazy Or Brave? I’m Single And Trying For A Second Child.
Have a great weekend
