Over the Moon and the Stars With Mayim Bialik

Written by Jesse Sposato|Photos by Denise Herrick Borchert

Mayim Bialik may not fit the typical image that comes to mind when thinking classic nonconformist—she probably didn’t skip school to smoke cigarettes in her older boyfriend’s 1969 convertible, or sneak out in the middle of the night to get wasted on Zimas. But that’s kind of the best part about her—Bialik subscribes to her own brand of awesome. She’s a Hollywood actress and an observant Jew; she holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience and is a vegan; she’s an advocate of attachment parenting and a spokeswoman for Texas Instruments. She makes her own rules and stands by them with what seems like little effort. And she has been doing so most legendarily since her amazing TV sitcom Blossom aired in the early to mid nineties. 

 

Jillian Lauren’s New York Times best-selling memoir Some Girls: My Life in a Harem (Plume, 2010) chronicles the true story of her life in the Sultan of Brunei’s harem, which she lived at, not once but twice. In her first novel Pretty (Plume, 2011) Lauren explores the life of a bruised and battered young woman struggling to put her addictions behind her and bring the pieces of her life together.
