Despite being born with an allergy to pickles and an addiction to WebMD, Jenni Maier is a full-time pop culture blogger. During the rare times when Jenni Maier isn’t writing fan mail to Jennifer Lawrence or attempting to invent the next Pinterest, she’s out and about in New York City trying to score as many free food samples as possible. Her writing has appeared on Guyism, CollegeCandy and a few blogs that required her to use a fake name.
After two-and-a-half blissful years of waiting tables for celebrities and rude normals alike, Alexis Rhiannon finally has a paid excuse to know way too much about reality television. In addition to pop culture, she has a fondness for personal space, cream cheese frosting, methamphetamines, and stalking you on Facebook. She is a decidedly odd human who has been described variously as a velociraptor, a robot, and a Muppet. She performs long-form improv throughout the city with her teams FRANK AND GARY and PULLEY. If at any point you’re having trouble finding her, it’s highly likely that she’s at Chipotle.
Jill O’Rourke is a freelance blogger and full-time pop culture addict who keeps a careful mental schedule of daily Friends reruns. When she’s not cultivating her love-hate relationship with Lifetime movies or reconciling her college degree with her desire to keep up with the Kardashians, she aspires to be the Ken Jennings of identifying celebrity voiceovers in TV commercials. Her writing has appeared on Prefix Magazine and The Celebrity Cafe.
Cassy hails from the much-less-glamorous-than-New-York-but-still-awesome city of Pittsburgh, where she’s a copywriter by day and a reality-television addict by night. She has a knack for impersonating just about anyone worth impersonating, finding bottled wine on sale, and making the most out of small community theater roles. She has a fat cat named Ralphie, after her favorite Christmas movie character (although his name was almost Clark W. Griswold) and a lazy old dog named Molly who take up most of the space on her iPhone photo app in lieu of real children. She has experience as a freelance copywriter, full-time PR specialist, term paper aficionado, and overall pop culture guru.
Katie Garrity is a recent graduate with a Bachelor’s degree in English and a looming fear of dying along with 12 cats. She hopes to one day move to the coast (either one would work, really, she’s not picky). She also enjoys overanalyzing text messages, taking selfies on Instagram, and crying for no reason in particular.
Garnet Henderson is known, in her small hometown, as that girl who moved to the big city. In New York, she is known as that girl from Wyoming. Garnet is addicted to good music and trashy reality TV, and is also a dancer and choreographer. Her writing has appeared on CollegeCandy, Inside New York, the Dance Enthusiast, and in the Brooklyn Rail.
