Debra Messing and her publicist should get down on their knees and thank whoever hooked them up with this writer named Suzy Byrne who writes for Yahoo/OMG. Seriously, I don't understand how Suzy does not have a job with People Magazine. I will post some portions of it here, but honestly, there is no way I can do this justice in just a few blurbs. You really need to click over and read it in its entirety. I recommend doing so in small portions because if you try and take it all in at once you will overdose on sugary sweetness. I am convinced this Suzy person has every episode of Will & Grace memorized and has conversations with herself about what it would be like to be Debra Messing's best friend and how they could hang out and swap recipes and go shopping together followed by lunch and would call and text and Twitter each other all night, and it would just be the bestest.
"Also fun is the special parenting practice she uses with her child: note writing. "I have been doing it for my son for years," shares the actress. "I leave notes on the mirror of his bathroom, on the refrigerator. I have them in his books and his book bag. I don't know if it sort of tickles me more than it tickles him, but I feel like they are kind of love notes. They encourage him and make him feel supported and loved throughout the day when he finds them." Roman has taken to writing his own, which she says she saves in a special box. "He leaves me notes that typically just say, 'I love you mama,' which is the only note that makes me cry," she says."
I know you are saying to yourself, well that is kind of cute. Sugary, but cute. Yeah, like a Katie Holmes interview about Tom cruise a few years ago. What makes this go overboard is the following paragraph.
"Because she is such a big fan of notes, Messing jumped at the chance to work with Post-it Brand on a new program they launched called Post-it Your Words Stick With Them, which highlights the power of a handwritten message."
And she also jumped at the nice big fat check she gave them and it also makes me feel like the whole notes thing is a set up she uses for Post It.
Oh, and she and her son were not able to take their usual vacation together. Why? "Unfortunately, I was not able to [accompany Roman on vacation], but I was able to travel to Zambia, which was wonderful," she says of her trip to South Africa. "I am Global Ambassador for PSI, a global health organization, so it was a different kind of vacation, but it was very meaningful."
