Admit it — Poppy Montgomery, La La Anthony, and Roselyn Sanchez make up the #GirlSquad of your dreams. It’s cool, us too. Lucky for all of us, we’ll have the chance to listen to these gal pals chat over drinks during #BlogHer20 Healthy at Home’s Happiest Hour.
We couldn’t be more excited to have the one and only Poppy Montgomery joining us for this groundbreaking event! Poppy is an actress, mom, Instagram icon, and content queen. She created, executive produced and starred in the sexy series “Reef Break”. Montgomery also starred in the much loved “Unforgettable” and “Without a Trace”. She played Marilyn Monroe in the miniseries “Blonde” as well as co-starred in films including “The Other Sister”, “Life” and cult favorite “Dead Man on Campus”. Poppy’s currently quarantined like the rest of us with her 5 children, but is using the time to dole out hilarious snippets of mom-life to her adoring fans by starring in her hilarious IGTV skit-series “Reasons Mommy Drinks” — which if you still haven’t seen, you’re seriously missing out on. She’s a co-parenting queen and shares tons of relatable, engaging content.
When it comes to the entertainment industry, La La Anthony has truly done it all. She’s been a radio host, an MTV personality, a producer, an actress – the list goes on and on. On top of all that, she’s been nominated for a Tony for her producer role in “Eclipsed,” written two New York Times best-selling books, and has her own clothing and beauty lines – both focused on empowering women. Her beauty line, “Motives for La La,” prides itself on coming in a wide, put-the-beauty-industry-to-shame array of shades so that every woman can find their perfect match.
Last but certainly not least, Roselyn Sanchez! Roselyn is an actress, a podcaster, a singer, mom of three — and is about to make her directorial debut with her upcoming, highly anticipated short film “Satos.” She’s starred on the big screen and small screen alike, including Rush Hour 2 and Without a Trace. She was crowned Miss Puerto Rico in 1993, was nominated for a Latin Grammy almost a decade later, and spends a large amount of her time as an advocate for PETA. She is the co-host of the “He Said, Ella La Dijo” podcast, which she puts on with her husband Eric Winter every Monday.
