NFL Touch Items

By on 11-27-2008 in Blog

Hello all!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I was working on Wisegal on Thanksgiving day. I returned to Los Angeles on Saturday. On Sunday, mom made me a feast to make up for the fact that I wasn’t home on Thursday for the festivities. She even made her famous rice balls. Has anyone had a rice ball before? Yum. Yum. Yum. Fried balls of yumminess. They are my favorite. I have been sleeping like a champion since my return, catching up on my dreams.

The Wisegal shoot went really well. I think you will like the movie. It’s based on a true story of a widow with two sons who, in order to put food on the table, takes a job working for the mob. It’s basically about a mother’s determination to give her boys the childhood she never had. When her boys start getting negatively influenced by the mob, she decides to get out. Easier said than done. I went back to my roots for this one. Big hair and a bigger mouth, complete with the accent. I put many subtle tributes to my momma in the script. Jimmy Caan played the mob boss. He was pretty amazing and brought a lot of heart to a role that could have been portrayed a lot tougher. I don’t know when it will air but I will keep you updated.

In other news, I was supposed to go back to MY NAME IS EARL on the second of December but due to the strike that is on hold until both parties reach an agreement. I am completely in support of the writer’s and hope they get the little piece of the pie that they are asking for and deserve. Apparently, they are back negotiating so hopefully this will end soon and everyone can get back to work. For more information on the strike you can go to:

You know what else? I am very excited about this little piece of news. There are NFL TOUCH items finally available on! How freaking cool is that? We now have the licensing for NHL, NFL, NBA, NCAA and MLB! It’s the little idea that could. I just want to say thank you for supporting the idea. I know very well that it was all of you that made this dream a reality for me so…. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

And more important than any of the above, the primaries are coming up soon. Please make sure you get out there and vote. Please. Vote. I am still keeping an open mind but as of today, I am leaning towards John Edwards. I also like – Joe Biden, Bill Richardson, and Dennis Kucinich. To find out more info on the candidates and where they stand on all the issues, please take a moment to click on:

Thank you for reading this entry! I hope you’re well and in good spirits!

And Love,


  1. I am so glad to hear that you are already addressing the need for plus size clothing! I love your clothing line, but my school (book) store doesn’t carry it yet (UNC Chapel Hill)– any chance that this may change in the near future…? Also, have you considered pursuing a contract with the Barnes and Noble College Booksellers? They currently operate 624 college bookstores, and I’m sure all of the students would welcome your fashionable spin on collegiate apparel!

  2. Hi Alyssa,

    I have been a huge fan of yours for years, I still watch charmed every single morning. I first want to say congratulations on your clothing line with the NFL it was an execellent idea. I am one of those women who have to wear oversized hoodies with heels to sporting events, (tryting to look cute) but thanks to you I can look sexy and cheer for my favorite team (Chicago Bears…sorry: )I have a question for you… How did you get started in such a closed market. I have always wanted to design and this area of fashion design is certainly a niche market. I am exetremly interested in designing for the National College football league. Do you have any advise as to where I should start or who I should talk to? Thank You!

  3. Hi Alyssa,
    I’m a fan of yours and I used to watch “Charmed” every week then when it came on TNT, I watch it every day. I just want to know wherher you have considered pursuing a contract with the Barnes and Noble College Booksellers?They currently operate large of college bookstores,and i believe you are very popular with all of their students beause of your beautiful,fashion.friendly and gentle.

  4. Indianapolis Colts Full Zip Draft Day Sweater Jacket

    Anyway, if you can help I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thanks for reading,

  6. Hi Alyssa,

    When you were a little girl did you ever dream about being famous? Did you ever dream of a famous person ( or some thing along those lines ) would come nocking on you door?

  7. Dear Alyssa it was about when i watched the movie Commando. at that time i was maybe 13 or 14 years of age. and it was about yesterday when a local TV played Commando movie. All that time i watched the movie, i wondered how young you have become. i informed my wife that how old you now since first time you were in the Commando movie. God Bless You…..your reply to me, will make me really glad…… Thanks anyway :)
