Actress Jenny Mollen puts it out there in new book

From page C7 | July 13, 2014 |

NEW YORK — Jenny Mollen has no filter. And she’s fine with that.

The actress often tweets raunchy commentary about ABC’s “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” with her husband, Jason Biggs. Howard Stern was so impressed he asked them to tweet live when “America’s Got Talent” is on.

She wrote about hiring a prostitute for her husband’s birthday on the Playboy website TheSmokingJacket.

Now, she’s compiled some of her outrageous life into a book, “I Like You Just the Way I Am: Stories About Me and Some Other People.”

Mollen, 35, talks about the book, motherhood and Twitter.

AP: You don’t seem to hold back when you’re writing.

Mollen: I don’t really feel like anybody’s listening (laughs). I feel like I can just kind of get away with it.

AP: Some of the stories in the book are pretty out there. Are they embellished?

Mollen: Some are embellished but it’s in parts you probably wouldn’t expect. The most outrageous things are the true things and the things I’ve had to tweak are to either protect people’s identities or to kind of condense timelines. I get myself into the worst situations.

AP: You and your husband often tweet about “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.” Are you fans of the show or do you just enjoy making fun of it?

Mollen: We love ‘The Bachelor.’ I love watching people get broken up with. … I love the idea that they actually fall in love and I love watching them get their hearts crushed into a million pieces. There’s just some weird sadistic pleasure I get from that.

AP: You’re a new mom (son Sid was born in February). Is motherhood what you thought it would be?

Mollen: It’s harder in a different way. I pictured myself, you know, having spit up all over me and spaghetti in my hair and something on fire in the kitchen. It’s not that so much. It’s this mounting anxiety that you’re not doing enough as a parent. … It’s hard to keep up with your expectations of yourself as a parent. To live up to those.

AP: Have you watched season two of “Orange is the New Black” yet? (Biggs is a cast member.)

Mollen: I haven’t. Usually I take forever to watch anything of Jason’s because I’m a bad wife. With ‘Orange’ (season one) I was addicted and I binged on it. This time with the baby I have not had time. I’m even behind on ‘Game of Thrones.’

AP: Do you want to write another book?

Mollen: I’d love to. Especially now that I have a baby, I have a sidekick. I have, like, a season two new love interest. My son.
