  • Andy Samberg is Mayim Bialik

    Need another reason why you should be bummed about Andy Samberg supposedly leaving Saturday Night Live?

  • Mayim Bialik and the Maccabeats bring some holiday cheer

    Although I will forever view her as my favorite 90s sitcom star, Mayim Bialik has become the Jewish force to reckon with. Not only is she a neuroscientist, a journalist, and a star of a hit television show, but she is also a very nice lady. Bialik recently teamed up with Jewish singing sensation The Maccabeats to raise money for the Gift of Life Bone Marrow Foundation. The Maccabeats are hoping to raise $80,000 by the end of Chanukah for the organization with Bialik’s help and support. For every $18+ donation, the donor will receive a gift. The gifts start small, with things like free mp3s, and build up to bigger things like an autographed photo of Mayim Bialik. All donors are entered in a lottery to win one of six grand prizes, which includes a guest spot in the new Maccabeats video, Big Bang memorabilia, a phone call from Mayim, or having lunch with the Maccabeats. More ▸

  • Mayim Bialik celebrates her kitty’s birthday with slurpees

    Mayim Bialik celebrates her 8-year-old peterbald cat’s birthday in a highly unusual way — with a family trip to 7 Eleven for slurpees. It just so happens that Esau (someone should alert Feline Protective Services about that name) was born on July 11, which is when the convenience store chain that I frequented for late… More ▸
