Jennifer Weiner is arguably America’s most popular female author, having sold 11 million books worldwide, and producing some of the most memorable fiction of our lifetimes with hits like “Good In Bed”, “In Her Shoes” (Which was made into a hit movie starring Toni Collette, Cameron Diaz, and Shirley Maclaine), and “Best Friends Forever”. Jen has developed a genre of writing that says what’s on every woman’s mind with strong female characters that are a symbol of courage and reflection, and in the process has defined herself as one of the best fiction writers in the business with a perpetual spot on the NY Times Bestseller List, countless appearances on National Television Shows like Today, CBS This Morning, Rachel Ray, Martha Stewart, her work appearing in Seventeen, Salon, Redbook, Glamour, Good Housekeeping, In Style and Elle, and even has executive producer credits on ABC Family’s State Of Georgia (Which starred Raven Symone). She writes occasionally for the Huffington Post and Time Magazine even named her as one of its 140 Best Twitter feeds. Jen has now released her newest book, “The Next Best Thing” to stellar reviews, and was just on Today, CBS This Morning, and Good Day New York in the last week talking about her foray into Hollywood and how her personal experiences have inspired the star of her newest bestseller.
When you talk about “One Of A Kind” individuals, it doesn’t get any better then Molly Weiner! She is Jen’s sister, who was depicted by Cameron Diaz in the movie version of “In Her Shoes”, and has one of the funniest and most genuine personalities you will ever meet, and now she has transitioned her acting career into music, specifically rapping. Her latest video “Eye Of The Cougar” has gone viral, and is absolutely brilliant and hilarious, and with her new album “Date Rapper” and a tour ahead, she is ready to take her talents to the next level.
Here “The King Of Kamelot” sits down with The Weiner Sisters in NYC during Jen’s mega media blitz for “The Next Best Thing” to talk about her newest book and extraordinary career, Molly’s rapping career and “Eye Of The Cougar”, their mother coming out as Gay and how they handled it, why they need their own reality show, the first night I met Molly in Philadelphia, how Jen found out her ABC Family show was cancelled, Jen’s obsession with “The Bachelor”, and sooo much more!! This was one of the most fun interviews I have ever done, because you have two brilliantly funny sisters who have led such unique lives, and are as genuine as can be, but as we see in “In Her Shoes” couldn’t be more different yet close and loving. Jen’s career is nothing short of brilliance, and there is no doubt Molly will break through soon with her unique Rapping style. Enjoy Kade Nation!!
Here is Jen on CBS This Morning and Today right before sitting down with me!
