Top Five Reasons I’m Hosting the New “Candid Camera”

By at 2:02 pm

1. It’s pop culture I actually know of.

Since I don’t watch TV or go to many movies and am generally out of sync with pop culture, it’s very thrilling to be asked to be part of something that I actually know about. (Case in point: when I auditioned for my role on “The Big Bang Theory” and was asked to do a female impression of Jim Parsons’ Sheldon character, my response was, “Who’s Jim Parsons, who’s Sheldon, and what is ‘The Big Bang Theory’?”) I watched “Candid Camera” on and off as a child and there’s something very surreal and exciting about being part of something that I actually used to watch. Note to J.J. Abrams, if you decide to bring back “Lost,” I was a huge fan and I’d love to be on that too.

2. Breaking up the monotony. Read more →

Mayim Bialik: Why I Donated Money to Send Bulletproof Vests to the IDF

By at 3:40 pm

IDF-soldiers

1. I need to feel like I’m doing something.

2. No matter what your politics are, soldiers sent into war zones deserve to be protected from enemy fire.

3. Every soldier is someone’s son or daughter. Every single one.

Mayim Bialik: Top Seven Things I Noticed About Myself This Week

By at 12:16 pm

Mayim-Bialik-seven-things

When recovering from hand surgery as I am–or any surgery for that matter–you notice things. About yourself, your home, your kids, and your body. Because you have a lot of time to think.

Here’s the top seven things I noticed about myself this week:

Mayim Bialik: It’s Hard to Write Anything With Israel on My Mind

By at 10:55 am

Israel-barbed-wire

Besides the fact that I am recovering from major hand surgery, I am finding it difficult to write these days. I am using a dictation program as well as utilizing Fancy Assistant Brandon’s typing skills, so it’s not that I have no way to communicate with the outside world.

The problem is with Israel. It’s on my mind pretty much all of the time. When the three teenagers were kidnapped a month ago, it was on my mind. When they were found murdered and left in an open field, it was on my mind. When Jewish extremists burned a Palestinian teenager alive in retribution, it was on my mind.

What is also on my mind is the plight of the Palestinian people; the innocent people caught in the crossfire of Hamas, a military and political entity which calls for the explicit destruction of the state of Israel as part of their official charter. What is also on my mind are the hundreds of thousands of Jews and Arabs in Israel being shelled with rockets from every border. What is also on my mind is my family and my friends and their children and their grandchildren being ushered into bomb shelters when sirens blare.  Read more →

Mayim Bialik: Emmy Noms, Mary Poppins & Other Awesome Things That Happened This Week

By at 11:20 am

Mayim bialik red carpet look

I had taken a week off from blogging and social media due to surgery required for my hand, which was injured in a car accident two years ago. I am using voice dictation programs, but this particular post is being dictated to Fancy Assistant Brandon, who, as I said after my accident two years ago, is not only literally my right-hand man, but helps fill in the blanks of my brain as well.

Here are the top five funny/amazing/wonderful things that happened in this past week. I write this with full awareness that the situation in Israel remains critical and this post is not meant in any way to detract from the seriousness and intensity of what is going on in Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza. (Here is the most recent post I wrote about the situation.)

1. The Empire Strikes Back. Read more →

Mayim Bialik: I’m Devastated by the Violence in Israel

By at 12:07 pm

mayim bialik kotel

I have been taking a social media break due to my surgery last week, but I have of course been following the news and have also seen a lot of the negative and anti-Israel comments on my page over the last weeks. I have decided to use my voice dictation program to dictate a brief post regarding the goings on in Israel.

In light of the discovery of the bodies of the three teenagers kidnapped on June 12, I posted here on Kveller about the unimaginable reality that the mothers of these teenagers must be experiencing. I expressed a desire for peace and I expressed sympathy for the plight of the Palestinian people. I do not believe that there is any excuse for kidnapping and murdering innocent teenagers under the guise of a political movement or any recognized government organization.

The news over the weekend that Jewish extremists burned a Palestinian teenager alive in retribution for the Israeli teens deaths makes me sick to my stomach. There is no excuse. Read more →

Mayim Bialik: Mourning for the Murdered Israeli Teens & Praying For Peace

By at 11:43 am

Dove

I took a social media break after the heartbreaking news came out yesterday of the gruesome discovery of the bodies of the three teenagers kidnapped in Israel, who were missing since June 12.

I don’t have a lot to say. I don’t understand politics. I don’t understand what it must be like to lose a child simply because they were coming home from school and someone decided it was a courageous and admirable political act to kidnap, murder them, and leave them in an open field.

I looked at my sons as they went to bed last night and I thought of the mothers who spent their lives tucking their boys in, and making them lunch, and bandaging cut knees, and holding them when they had their feelings hurt. I thought of their dreams for their sons to marry and become fathers and tuck their own children in. Heartbreak. That must be what it feels like to lose your son like this: like having your heart broken.  Read more →
