In honor of the upcoming season, EW’s staff of award-winning writers and producers sat down with the team behind Magazines That are Too Good to be True and revealed the creative inspirations behind some of the biggest names in pop culture, and the surprising and often downright hilarious things they did in their free time.
Magazines that are too good to be true (in chronological order):”My Mom”My mom is a very, very smart person.
And when I think of smart people, I think my mom.
My mom was a writer.
She wrote and directed, she wrote a lot of television shows.
She did movies, too.
She’s written some amazing books and she was a brilliant storyteller.
But I really, really like my mom, and I think that my mom was one of the few people who I loved.
And she was the one who told me that there was no such thing as too much of a good thing, and that there is a right amount of a bad thing.
And she said that, when she was younger, she would tell me stories about how her parents would eat lunch together, how they would sit in the kitchen together, and it’s amazing to me that my mother could say that.
So I thought that was so funny.
I think she was really smart.
I also think she just knew how to cook.
She was very, well, pretty, and she did a lot.
I remember, my mom always wanted to be a cook, and we would sit around the kitchen table and she would cook all day long.
She would cook dinner and I would cook lunch.
And I always thought, that’s so, so weird, because she did so many dishes.
I would always go, ‘I don’t want to do that.’
And she would always say, ‘No, I can cook, because my parents are so good cooks.’
And I think it’s so funny to me because my mom is, like, the greatest cook in the world.
She had an amazing cookbook, and my mom would cook for a living.
I guess the way that she would teach her, my mother would do, the way she taught her was that she was going to be great and she’d just be in the classroom, and then she would be out on the street and she just would do the dishes.
And then she’d go to a dinner party and she had the most wonderful dinner party, and all of a sudden I’m like, ‘Wait, what is she doing out there?
She’s not going to cook dinner, she’s just going to do a little bit of cooking, but that’s all she does, and now she’s got to get back to school, and when she does come back to the classroom she’s going to start working in the library.
And my mom has a really, very big library, and they would make her go out to the library, to the dining hall, to do this, that, and, you know, and…
She would go out and she wouldn’t cook, she was just so good at it, and so I think I always wanted that.
And that’s what I think is great about my mom: She was a great cook.
I don’t know why, I guess it was her sense of humor.
She loved it.
She just loved doing it.
So, I’m really glad that I grew up with her.
And it was so fun, and as soon as I found out about the book, I just started to like it.
And so that was her way of saying, ‘Oh, no, this is not a bad book, and this is great, and you don’t have to do it.
This is all great.’
And then, you’ll go, well then, I don, I didn’t want that to happen.
I didn, I wouldn’t want her to go out on her lunch break, and just just just sit around and just be a dumb cook.
And we would always have a meal in the back of the kitchen and then I’d do a whole lot of dishes and cook and then my mom had to take care of me and then go to work.
And it was a very wonderful thing.
She really was a perfectionist.
I mean, I grew out of it.
I had a lot to learn.
And, I was, like I had to get better at it.
But, I always think, she didn’t really understand how much I wanted to cook or how much she liked cooking.
And in fact, she always had the best, and at least as good as her, and would say, I wish I had been a chef more often.
She said that when I was younger I was trying to cook like a chef, and after a while I just said, well it’s too much for me. So she
