A longtime entertainment journalist, Maisy Fernandez gave up newspapers for freelancing in order to stay home with her preschooler son and infant daughter. At night, Maisy watches a whole lotta reality TV to decompress. While her TV viewing habits definitely kill off some brain cells here and there, it also inspires her to teach her kiddos early on that “ingredientses” and “conversate” are not acceptable words; that underwear should be worn at all times, especially when cameras are following you around; and that it’s never too early to start learning from 16 & Pregnant.
