Highlights From Mayim Bialik’s Book Tour for “Mayim’s Vegan Table”

By at 2:59 pm


You’d have to be living under a large soundproof rock–or out of reach of a television, radio, or computer–to not know I just did a book tour in New York for my new book, “Mayim’s Vegan Table.”

Well, just in case, here are the highlights of my publicist Heather and my whirlwind tour of New York for my book. Heather (VP of Much & House Public Relations) and the good people at De Capo Press worked very hard to put together an incredibly (impossibly?) packed itinerary and I am sharing with you the major appearances, hilarious and awkward highlights, and LOL moments of each appearance.

As a general rule, as you read this, please know that it’s very hard to insult me or make me feel small or insignificant, because I sort of feel that way all the time as a modest default. So any time I am slighted or potentially humiliated, I take it as a sign from God that I’m not God. Read the rest of this entry →

Fun Times at “The Queen Latifah Show” with Mayim Bialik & Magic Johnson

I was on The Queen Latifah show yesterday. I have been a fan of hers for years, and I was very excited to be a guest, especially when I found out that Earvin “Magic” Johnson was going to be a guest too!

The hair and make-up artists who turn me into Amy Farrah Fowler weekly on “The Big Bang Theory” got to make me up all glam for this appearance and that was great fun. Doing my hair and make-up at Big Bang typically takes about 30 minutes total since I barely wear much make-up at all as Amy and straightening my naturally wavy-ish hair doesn’t take that long either. This appearance was a chance for the ladies who normally don’t get to do much fun stuff with me to have fun. And they sure did! I was very happy with the “different” look they gave me and they were tickled to be able to glam me up.

I had stylist Ali help me select a “casual” outfit but I think I always end up looking kind of dressed up since I don’t wear pants or jeans… oh well. We chose a simple J. Crew pencil skirt, my favorite Boden 3/4 T-shirt, and a fun necklace that I got as SWAG last year before the Emmys. And of course, tall heels. Read the rest of this entry →
