1) Hi, Alexandra, I am interested in knowing which commodities you regularly buy used (to be honest, I have to smile at the irony that the Duggar family also promotes, “Buy used and save the difference.”) In our family of 6 (all children adopted), we shop almost exclusively for gently used clothing, shoes, and home items at resale stores. We also buy our vehicles used. Do you? Do you have close friends who exclusively purchased used vehicles? And what about your home? Did you build it, or did you purchase a pre-existing home? Thanks in advance. Thar Hi Thar, How wonderful that all your children are adopte... Read more

Here is an interview I did with Viva Glam magazine. We discuss arrests, makeup, my secondhand ipad and why I find Russell Brand irritating. Click on the image below to read the full interview. ... Read more

I won best supporting actress in a comedy web series last night at the Indie Series Awards. It was for my work in Mentor, which you can see for free here. Many thanks to my director and great friend Jason Stuart, who asked me to join the show, and who, along with his co-writer Paul Elia, pushed me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to basically go berserk. I am such a b**ch in this show. We play versions of ourselves in Mentor, so Ian came in as my husband in one scene! ... Read more

The Indie Series Awards are tomorrow in Hollywood, and I have been nominated for Best Supporting Actress in a Comedy for my work in the web series Mentor. You can watch for free here. Mentor was so fun to do because my great friend Jason Stuart wrote, directed and starred, and we play ourselves (except I am a lot meaner than in real life… I hope!). Add to the mix the very talented newcomer Paul Elia, and you have a party onscreen and off! ... Read more

1) Dear. Ms. Paul, I have recently watched your TED talk on overpopulation and would like to comment on several factors that you brought up. I agree with you when you stated that the world is overpopulated because the population of the world is seven billion people. That is a lot of people. It seems like a blaspheming amount when you think about how it was four billion around the time when you were going to school compared to now. I also agree when you stated that resource availability is a problem that continues to lead to starvation and poverty because “Almost half the world – over three billion people ̵... Read more

When I was a kid, my mom gave blood at the Red Cross regularly, and I was always entranced that you get free cookies, as many as you want afterwards. That probably gave me a positive association with being a donor of body parts – my hair has never grown long enough for me to cut it for cancer patients, but I am on the bone marrow donor list. I wanted to donate a kidney or part of my liver about 10 years ago, but Ian begged me not to and Caroline reminded me she might need one of those organs from me one day, so now I am just giving my body to UCLA when I am dead, so doctors-to-be can learn on me instead of inn...

My friend Terry Ray and I did this silly, fun skit today. Find out if I am straight! ... Read more
