Hot in Cleveland is just the latest hit television series to land on Wendie Malick’s resume. The longtime actress has also had popular roles on Frasier and Just Shoot Me, and she’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. We recently caught up with Malick to talk about the new season of Hot in Cleveland (which premieres on Monday, January 19th at 10 PM on TV Land), working with Betty White and how she keeps her skin looking fabulous.
Ladies’ Home Journal: Over the years you’ve been a part of numerous hit television shows. What’s been the best thing about working on Hot in Cleveland?
Wendie Malick: Just being with these fabulous, beautiful, funny, experienced women. We’ve all been doing this quite a long time. And we have the great mentor, queen of them all, Betty White. I think she’s given so many women great affirmation that life is what you make it, and there’s no expiration date on being fabulous.
LHJ: Is there anything that surprised you about working with her?
WM: I was amazed by her stamina, her wit, her timing. At 89 it’s pretty remarkable that she still has that sparkle in her eye and she obviously loves what she does. I think it’s something that all four of us share on the show.
LHJ: What can fans of the show expect from the second season (premiering January 19th on TV Land)?
WM: Our guest on the first show is Mary Tyler Moore. Talk about going back to where it all began! It’s pretty extraordinary.
LHJ: Tell me about a little bit about this new project you’re doing with Vaseline.
WM: I’ve been using different kinds of Vaseline products since I was a kid. The new Vaseline Intensive Rescue products I think are particularly applicable to those of us who like being in the cold or in extreme weather. I love to ski and I just love the outdoors. So I need to use a moisturizer that goes into your skin, deeply absorbs well and isn’t sticky or slippery.
LHJ: Do you have any other tips on how to keep your skin from becoming dry over the winter?
WM: When it’s cold outside your impulse is to take a hot shower and just linger there to enjoy it. But I’ve learned that it’s better to take a quick shower that’s not too hot, and when you dry off, pat dry rather than rubbing yourself dry because you can lock in that moisture before you put on a good lotion.
