And The Cronuts

I love the show Two Broke Girls on CBS, it’s smart, funny, and reminds me of a time in my life when I was in fact a “Broke Girl”

Picture it, Washington, DC, 1991, a young Di at 20 years old is venturing off on her own. I had moved to DC with the help of my Dad co-signing my very first apartment, an efficiency right in the heart of the city. I was so excited, here I was a young woman in the city, on her own, day-dreaming of how I would take it by storm! Little did I know……..

Cut to working swing-shifts at a hotel, barely getting enough money to pay the rent, and living off of popcorn and coffee. It was a struggle to make end meet sometimes, and I really was in fact a “Broke Girl”……. BUT with all the scraping together of money to pay the bills, the extra shifts at the hotel, I also had the best friends a girl could ask for. Although we all came from different backgrounds, some better off than others, we supported one another through the trials and tribulations, much like Max and Caroline do on Two Broke Girls. We were all broke and trying to make it on our own, but we had one another to lean on, to help when needed, and most importantly, we got to share our life experiences….together.

Watching the show reminds me of those times, and all the life lessons I learned, and the unbreakable friendships I made. I never got into anything quite as hilarious as Max and Caroline do on the show, but oh the memories!

And The Soft Opening

2 Broke Girls has  now moved to a NEW TIME – Mondays at 8:30/7:30 c on CBS.


2 BROKE GIRLS is a comedy about the unlikely friendship that develops between two very different young women who meet waitressing at a diner in trendy Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and form a bond over their dream of one day owning their own successful cupcake business.  Only one thing stands in their way – they’re broke.  Sarcastic, street-smart Max Black met the sophisticated, school-smart Caroline Channing when the uptown trust fund princess was having a run of bad luck due to her father’s Wall Street scandal, which caused her to lose all her money and forced her to give waitressing a shot.  At first, Max sees Caroline as an entitled rich girl, but she’s surprised to find that Caroline has as much substance as she does style. When Caroline discovers Max’s knack for baking amazing cupcakes, she visualizes a lucrative future for them and they begin to save money to reach their start-up money goal of $250,000.  As the girls’ cupcake tally expands week-to-week, they become closer to their goal and to each other.  At the diner they are surrounded by their offbeat, colorful “work family”: Oleg, an overly flirtatious cook; Earl, a hip 75-year-old cashier; Han, the eager-to-please owner of the diner; and Sophie, the girls’ outrageous upstairs neighbor. As Max and Caroline climb toward their goal, we see that their “smarts” plus their “hearts” might just be the recipe for success.
