Last week, I had a great opportunity. I had the chance to interview actress Andrea Rosen from the hit TV show Take Me to Your Mother. Now I'll be honest here, I've never actually watched the show before. I know, I know - I just haven't had much time for television lately! However, I will say that I definitely plan to tune in after talking to her and finding out what a fun and spunky personality she has!
Andrea has partnered with Old Spice for their "Smellcome to Manhood" campaign in hopes to get guys everywhere to "Scent Responsibly". With 4 tween/teens in the house - trust me, I know all too well about overspraying. I swear, at some moments I'd prefer the scent of musty dirty socks! Below a fun infographic about overspraying.
I know, you're waiting for my interview, right? My apologies, I'll get to that right now - but then we're going back to this overspraying conversation!
Me: Can you tell us what you're doing with Old Spice today?
Andrea Rosen: I'm an Old Spice Mom Ambassador. The came to me for the show (Take Me to Your Mother) and how not to raise a dick. Can I say that?
Me: Yes, I live in a house full of boys. I hear it daily! The much buzzed about Old Spice "Momsong" ad shows what happens when moms realize their sons are growing up. My youngest just turned 12 today, so I can totally relate. Before I know it, they'll be graduated and out of the house! Since you have a young son, do you think you'll react the same way?
Andrea Rosen: Yes, definitely!Just the other day he said "I like girls. I like girls"! I want him to be confident and smell and look good, but not grow up too fast!
Me: Back to the subject of boys. Mine love to use body spray and cologne - often putting on way too much! Have you ever personally experienced someone who has oversprayed before?
Andrea Rosen: Yes, a ton! I dated a guy a long time ago who oversprayed and used even more when he was sweating, which was all the time! How do you tell someone it's too much? I finally dumped him!
Me: Lastly, I'm sure my readers are dying to know - What's coming up for the new season of "Take Me to Your Mother"?
Andrea Rosen: I get to talk to motorcycle mamas. I'm so much more weepy since becoming a mom and I realized that they are too! I got to talk to geeky moms and they were really cool! Two of them write for the dictionary. Did you know that's an actual job?! I also met with the Ravens and had a lot of fun. Football players are really nice!
I hope that all of you enjoyed this interview as much as I enjoyed talking to Andrea. I think the biggest thing that I took out of this experience is realizing that she's a mom, just like the rest of us. She seemed down to Earth and had a great personality - totally someone I'd hang out with!
Hopefully this can help teach guys everywhere how to Scent Responsibly and not to overspray. I know I'll be going over the 4 steps with my boys so they don't one day get dumped for overspraying! Well, I suppose, there's something in it for me too. I won't have to deal with the resulting stench from their overspraying!
