This week, Gabrielle and Pallavi are joined by Tony award winning actress Kelli O'Hara. They reminisce about the "girlfriend chats" that changed their lives, and how they learned to make more room in the world for people who are different than them. Follow Kelli at @kelliohara on Twitter and Instagram.
After winning a Tony for her portrayal of Anna in The King and I, Kelli did The Worm in her dressing room, because what else do you do after you win a Tony for best lead actress?
Kelli O'Hara and Kristen Chenoweth's Mask Challenge
In this episode, Gabrielle, Pallavi, and Kelli talked about Kelli and Kristen Chenoweth's mask challenge on Instagram. The purpose of the challenge was to show off the masks they've been donning during the pandemic and invite their friends to use their platform to show off theirs.

Gabrielle's friend, Stephanie Jo, handmakes facemasks (and linen robes, and phone pouches... the list goes on).
Yvette-Gonzalez Nacer is a Cuban-American actress, author, singer, songwriter, producer and multi-instrumentalist. She has established herself in the world of entertainment as the rare kind of artist who shines in any genre.
In this episode, we learned that Yvette is an artist of countless talents. Outside of acting and performing on Broadway as one of the fates in Hadestown, she enjoys painting. She says she feels like she’s not supposed to be a painter, so she doesn’t feel the pressure of the expectations to be "good" and doesn't have those inhibitions or doubts holding her back.
Alex and Susi (warmly referred to as "Alesusi") brought season 2 of WAFF to fruition. As we say hello to Susi in a new role and goodbye to Alex as she continues to pursue her dreams, we want to take a moment to acknowledge and thank them both for their hard work (and tell you to follow them on Instagram).
