Andrew Shepard’s AMERICAN PRESIDENT SPEECH: Hillary Style

Jessie Rosen - July 29, 2016
Hillary Clinton Andrew Shepard

Hillary Clinton’s speech last night was as close to perfection as it gets – and yet I was kind of secretly hoping she’d just do this.    I’ve re-written this famous American President speech with all due respect to my heroes Aaron Sorkin and Hillary Clinton (and Michael Douglas too). My changes in bold.    For the last couple of months, Donald Trump has suggested that …

SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE: Next Generation

How crying at Fox’s new take on their dance comp classic is changing my life   I’ve been pretty upset with the world, lately. You too, right? Senseless killings in response to senseless killings. Politics too crazy for a screenplay. Rape culture runneth over. It is a really challenging time to be a human. And the stress of all this negativity pummeling us on and off line …

For days last week my social media feed filled with Stanford rape victim news – which is horrific. Then it shifted to the infamous Donald Trump on women ad – which is disgusting – it’s own form of violence. Then, news that a favorite Voice contestant of mine …

the bachelorette sex talks

What I learned about sex hosting a group date on The Bachelorette.   Three months ago I stood in front of 12 of the most attractive men I’ve ever seen and told them that they needed to talk about sex…in public. It was one part of my long and wild day hosting a group date on ABC’s The Bachelorette. Their task was to give a …

I oddly always use Summer as a time to get a massive chunk of work done. It’s the start of development season for network television here in Los Angeles; the days are longer meaning more sunlight to convince me it’s not time to stop working, and – the real reason – I didn’t get a staff writing job on a network television show so I’m …

Is My Most Important Career Choice My Husband?

Final clap

Last month I finally read Sheryl Sandberg’s book Lean In. I’m embarrassed to admit it was last month and not when it came out four years ago because I listened to the negative press instead of making my own evaluation. Shame on me because I missed out on years of having a more gender-informed perspective on the working world that might have changed a lot of the ways I …
