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. Read more

Backstage Beauty: Soft Skin Is In

Vaseline Sheer Infusion Official Skincare Sponsor L.A.M.B. 2010 Spring Fashion PresentationHere’s my beauty take on fashion week. You spend a lot of the time appreciating interesting, yet unrealistic trends. On occasion, you fall hard for a few amazing looks (and immediately try them out the next day). And once in a while, the only appropriate response is to scratch your head and say, “huh?”.

I’m experiencing a combination of all three reactions from Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. show. I love the crisp, winged eyeliner shape that M.A.C. makeup pro Donald Simrock created. (Personally I’ll try it in navy or black, but I appreciate his fun, splashy palette. The rest of the makeup is soft and neutral so it works.)

With all the bare shoulders and exposed necklines, one may argue that smooth, glowing skin counts as another bona fide beauty look for spring. (Here’s where I start scratching my head–isn’t moisturized skin a given?) But then again, don’t you love the idea that applying a great lotion (the L.A.M.B. models used Vaseline Sheer Infusion) can make you feel prettier and on-trend?
