The #WWHL Hangover: Anna Chlumsky's a Mommy-To-Be!
Anna spills on going from 'My Girl' to My Mom and her Housewife favs. Hint: They're as thick as thieves.
This hangover is a bit of an un-hangover. You see, Anna Chlumsky had a very good reason for only downing a virgin Bloody Mary (aka tomato juice) in the Clubhouse on Wednesday night. She's nearly six months pregnant! (Her hubby is Shaun So, a U.S. Army reservist who has served in Afghanistan.)
"I'm doing OK!" she told us after her visit with Andy. "I was really tired in the beginning, like toddler-tired, when you just want to cry. But I wasn't sick so I really count my blessings not having to work and be sick." Work for this My Girl actress is co-starring in the acerbic series Veep with Julia Louis-Dreyfus, which just wrapped its second season.
"My job is kind of like being a contractor," she explained. "If the project comes along then I'm totally willing to do it. If we get a third season I'm gung-ho to get started." And we're gung-ho to watch this mom-to-be!
Anna is a huge foodie (she worked as a researcher at Zagat's, the restaurant guide) so naturally she's a big Top Chef fan. But she also loves her Housewives, and has a particular allegiance to one franchise.
"The one you would have to go with would be The Real Housewives of New Jersey," she confesses. "I connect to the family thing and Caroline is really inspiring when it comes to having a family and being with it. I have an Italian family on my step-side. Mine doesn't fight as much but the loudness, the boisterousness, it reminds me of my family!"
