Jessica’s Favorite Interviews Of 2010

While there are still a few days left in 2010, we’re going to feature some of our best and favorite posts from the last year. Each of your regular Frisky bloggers has picked out her 10 favorite posts from 2010—some you may remember well, others might have slipped past your radar. Jessica went with a slightly different twist, picking her favorite interviews from the last year. Read on!

Tim Gunn: I was SO NERVOUS interviewing him. Typically I don’t get nervous interviewing celebs because I figure they’re people just like anybody else. But Time Gunn is … Tim Gunn! I hope I didn’t make too much of a fool of myself. Tim turned out to be a sweetheart, thankfully. 
Dita Von Teese, burlesque star: Dita said some interesting things about burlesque, makeup, and feminism. She was also kind of a bi-otch, though. I was pretty disappointed.
Samantha Bee from “The Daily Show”: Hands down, my favorite interview of 2010.  So smart, so funny and so wise. I seriously want Samantha to adopt me! (Sorry, Mom.) We talked about airbrushing, princesses and, uh, her vagina. She started off the interview talking about her pubic hair and I was, like, OK, if this is what she wants to talk about then I guess I go with this …
Margaret Cho, comedian: God bless Margaret Cho. She is a really nice lady. I accidentally didn’t have the recorder plugged in properly so I had to call her back and do the interview all over again. So embarrassing. But Margaret was a professional and totally did it.
Clinton Kelly of “What Not To Wear”: He’s a riot. He called me a little bitch!
Bryan Batt, who plays Sal on “Mad Men”: What a sweetheart. Bring Sal back on “Mad Men,” damn it!
Ryan Keely, adult film star: Ryan and I met up at a bar and ate slices of cake together. (Don’t ask.) She is GORGEOUS in person and I have a serious girl crush on her.
Angie Jackson, the woman who live-tweeted her abortion: Angie is one of the bravest women I know. She had to have an abortion using the RU-486 pill because it could have endangered her life to carry her pregnancy to term. Angie decided to tweet about her abortion as it was happening to show other women it was not really that scary. I did one of the very first interviews about it. Of course, she’s been constantly attacked by crazy anti-abortion extremists ever since then but I think she’s so brave and smart. We keep in touch over email and Twitter now.
Nikki Blonsky from “Hairspray” and “Huge”: I tried to get Nikki to talk about not getting cast on “Glee” but she saw through my wily ways and wouldn’t answer, damn it. It’s too bad that “Huge” got canceled. She’s a great actress and it was a cute show.
Brittany Snow of “Hairspray,” “Prom Night” and “John Tucker Must Die”: Brittany is someone else I really admire — not so much for her acting (though I really love horror movies and “Prom Night” was a good one) but for being vocal about her mental illness. I wish more celebrities were as open about their struggles with depression and eating disorders like Brittany has been. I have so much respect for that girl.
