Every week, Faris will invite a celebrity guest or two over to her home and together, along with cohost/producer Sim Sarna, they’ll take questions from callers, and also talk about their experiences with life, work, and love. In more than 40 episodes so far, Faris has offered her unqualified guidance to a number of people, including a bride afraid to lose her virginity on her wedding night, a wife who caught her husband watching porn, and a woman who has just met her birth mother for the first time. Well, that has been the amazing thing, a lot of the guests have really surprised me with their thoughtfulness. It’s always amazing when you think the guys don’t want to talk about relationships and suddenly they are super into it. We called the actress while she was on vacation with her husband, Chris Pratt, and talked about the genesis of her podcast, her dream celebrity guests, and why she can’t help but crack a vagina joke.. I like learning about other people’s lives, listening to other people’s problems. I’m sure being a successful actress in Hollywood facilitates getting famous guests on the show too. Now I’ll grab Chris’s phone and ask if I can annoy his friends. I became a huge podcast fan—an obsessive one, as my poor husband discovered. There are times when he’s like, “I can’t believe you said that.” But he’s been awesome about it. And I wanted something lighthearted on my way to work, and I love to talk about relationships; that’s all I want to talk about with my friends. I like talking to strangers, and I like escaping the Hollywood bubble. But I think as celebrities, you end up talking about yourself a whole lot and sometimes it’s really nice to talk about other people’s lives. He’s never said that I shouldn’t talk about something, which he probably thinks a lot! I am, but what overcomes it or what balances out the fear, is that it feels therapeutic and liberating to be in control of my story. I think it’s because I have to have control over it and I don’t want the town to make me feel insecure about it.
I waited till the next night to call her back…no answer.Waited until this week to try to contact her again…still no answer.So I can’t help but think she’s attempting to give me the fade-away.Occasionally, I hear from readers who ask for my advice about stuff, especially dating and travel. So I’ve had your blog post from a couple months ago about “the fade-away” on my mind recently.This particular person’s question really resonated with me because I think a lot of people have been in this situation, myself included, so I thought I’d share. About a week ago I went on a date with a girl, and I felt like she and I were really compatible.
