Ready To Meet The Mother? And Thanks For a Great 363 Days


Sunday marks one year since I began work here at Evil Beet as your Weekend Editor.  I thank you for all of your support both then and as I moved to weekdays.  For every reader that has vomited their venomous vitriol in my direction, I’ve encountered a hundred-fold of kind and wonderful people.  I even thank the vomiters for reading and sharing their thoughts.

I’ve also learned a lot about myself over the past year, but no self-revelation has been more jarring than when I realized that I don’t watch enough television.  I had to research the premise of How I Met Your Mother because it’s yet another show that I’ve never seen.  Odd really, since I totally love Neil Patrick Harris.  And odd since I write entertainment and celeb news for a living.  As I start Year Two here at EB, I commit to watching a lot more television.  I’ve spent the past few days teaching my kids how to cook, drive and do their own laundry, so I should be all set to dedicate about 8 hours a day to the tube starting next week.

Anyway, if you’re a fan of HIMYM you already know that the audience doesn’t know who the mother of Ted’s kids is.  In honor of the 100th episode of How I Met Your Mother, it sounds like there’s a chance that you might finally meet the mom.  And she’s, uh … hot.

Rachel Bilson has signed on for a one-episode appearance that is expected to happen around that 100th episode, which is when the question of “Who?” will finally be answered.

I like Rachel Bilson.  I think she’s cute and had a great clothing collection prior to getting Lindsayed — that’s my new term for mysterious, masked home invasions — but I don’t get the Rachel and Hayden Christensen match up at all.  They are one of those couple that got engaged, yet I can not envision them ever getting married.  Sorry, Rach!

  • Awww Wendie I think when you first started I hated your guts
    And now you’re my favourite writer, did you know that? Yaaaaay.

  • I thought that was an older picture of you!

    Happy Anniversary – I think you’re a great writer.

  • if rachel is really the mother that would be one of my favorite females and one of my favorite shows coming together. and it’s taken years to find out who the mother is – this would totally NOT be a letdown!

  • “…omited their venomous vitriol in my direction…”

    People are just hateful sometimes and that gets turned up a notch (and fortified with extra crazy!) when there’s the anonymity of the internet. You handle it well.

    I love reading you – love your writing style and you always crack me up!


  • Um, I did want to copy the “VOMITED” part. LMAO

    Im still only on cup of coffee #1, not considered fully functioning yet. Lolol

  • Cheers Wendie! Love your writing! Happy Anniversary! This year should be fun! Btw, do you watch It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia? Another must see show IMHO. :)

  • Two of my favorite things. EB and a cup of OJ in the morning. You keep me up to date on all the entertainment news “good and bad”. With a little twisted humor and a smile while writing I’m sure. Thanks for a great year.

  • Although sometimes I am not always for the subject matter you bring up and the way you portray it – I want to say congratulations and happy anniversary.


  • Congrats on making it a year! I would have quit a long time ago because some comments are sooo hateful! I’m glad you didn’t, happy anni!

  • Congrats Wendie. As far as HIMYM, I only watch it because there’s nothing else on really, but I hope they bring Sarah Chalke back. She was perfect, and I like her. However, I don’t really care. When the show ends, it ends. The Big Bang Theory is a much funnier show IMHO.

  • Congrats Wendie! Keep it up with your work, you’re a wonderful writer no matter what you’re writing about (EB, Mommytopia, …). :-)
