(( Disclaimer:  This post has NOTHING to do with the Real Housewives of New York but this GIF of Aviva telling Ramona she was White Trash was the first thing that came up in my search so I HAD to use...

You know the butterflies you get in the pit of your stomach when you are texting, messaging, chatting, tweeting, snapping, or heretofore unknown form of social media-ing with a special someone?  It's...

Last night after spin class I took myself to a movie (a nice British period drama called Far From the Madding Crowd... I loved it, obviously!).  After getting myself settled in, the man sitting behind...

I'm writing today from a Starbucks on 42nd Street in the heart of Times Square.  The center of everything. Where the worlds of a "kind-of sort-of" Iron Man and a "maybe if I squint a little" Hello Kit...

After a 5 week absence, I am finally back in New York, and have a message for my favorite (read: least favorite) faction of city folk:

Hipsters... Bless Your Heart.

I'm speaking exclusively to the male...

One of the major themes that I explore on this blog is displacement, and the struggle that comes with trying to reconcile who you are with where you abide.  For me this comes two fold.  As I explained...

Twice a year, New York's most beautiful people all gather at Lincoln Center for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.  There are two major "seasons" in Fashion: Fall/Winter, which has its showing in February, a...

Anniversaries are something that I usually don't forget.  My parent's wedding anniversary is December 28th... I moved to New York on August 26th... I joined Netflix on a Saturday in September.  But fo...

As a student of the theater I am no stranger to “subtext”.   In school we would spend weeks pouring over scripts figuring out what our characters were REALLY thinking or REALLY saying in any given mom...

Hello 2015!!!  It’s me, Mary Lane.  2014 brought on a lot of great things: I started this blog, which has launched me into a world full of possibility.  I appeared on my favorite network television sh...

This week’s edition of B.Y.H. is pretty self-explanatory.  I mean… just look at the note I found from my Super taped on my door when I got back to my apartment Monday night:

Okay.  Let’s pick this apar...

So last Friday morning I woke up at 6:00am, dressed up (as instructed) like I was attending “a nice dinner”, and walked the few blocks down from my apartment to ABC studios to stand in line with some...

Just when I think summer is finally over and gratefully bid adieu to high Con Edison bills, bad hair days, and with them the lip sweat that keeps one in a constant state of inelegance, I find myself o...

Many days late and several dollars short… especially after I just dropped $16.00 at Whole Foods for a lunch consisting of Carrot Ginger Soup and a tiny kale salad (which I still can’t ENTIRELY get beh...

Sushi: a seemingly safe date activity.  It’s casual.  It’s easy.  It makes you seem like you're adventurous.  If it’s a first date then ordering alone can serve as icebreaking conversation for at leas...

My name is Mary Lane Haskell and my two "claims to fame" are that I have Dolly Parton's fax number and that Reese Witherspoon once liked a post on my Instagram.  I am an actor, a writer, and a profound Chipotle enthusiast making my way in Los Angeles while trying to stay true to my family's southern roots, all with grace and a touch a good humor.  I'm so glad you're here!
