Amy on rabbits; returning to Alpha House and The Heart, She Holler

amy sedaris rabbit careOkay, I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted, but I have a few updates, yay!

First, Amy shares lots of fantastic tips on rabbit care and what to consider about owning a pet rabbit in this new interview on style.com. I actually have my own ancient 13-14 year-old mini rex rabbit (who happens to have a recipe named after him in Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People), and yes, bunnies absolutely are the best pets. 🙂 And yeah, it’s true what she says–that rabbits will basically own you and destroy all your stuff, but you can’t help but to love ’em! You can also check out a related post on today’s style.com blog: Amy Sedaris Dresses Like A Scarecrow, Looks Good Doing It.

Now, in totally unrelated news, Amy will be returning to two renewed shows! Amazon’s political comedy Alpha House was renewed for a second season, and Amy will once again be joining the cast–presumably reprising her role as a senator’s wife. Prime subscribers can watch the entire first season here (even though she was guest cast, Amy appeared in most epsiodes of season one).

Last but not least, Adult Swim renewed its gothic-horror-comedy/soap opera/mini series The Heart, She Holler for a third season. Amy originally joined the cast in 2013, taking over the role originally played by Kristen Schaal. She’ll be returning as Hurshe Heartshe–a sleazy, white trash woman who’s constantly plotting to take over the town.

Oh, and one more! If you missed them while they were in theaters… Amy has small parts in Chef and Ping-Pong Summer, both of which are coming to Blu-Ray/DVD next month, and they’re both really fun flicks. Check them out!

Rabbit Care with Amy Sedaris

Amy Sedaris and Mary Cotter rabbit care videos for Howcast

Amy and rabbit expert Mary Cotter have created a series of 49 super informative–and of course, super adorable–Howcast video guides on taking care of a rabbit. Anyone who has a rabbit, or is thinking of getting one, needs to hop (ha…) on over and watch these, as there’s a lot more to having a pet rabbit than most people realize. If you’re new to Amy and thinking that this is an odd thing to do, nope! Amy has had her mini-rex rabbit, Dusty, for nearly 11 years (and another bunny before that), and she’s an advocate for rabbit adoption and care, being an honorary rabbit educator for the House Rabbit Society. Anyway, check out the guides! Learn how to take care of a pet rabbit with bunny lover Amy Sedaris and rabbit expert Mary Cotter >>

*Ed. note–and shameless plug 🙂–Amy used two of my recipes for homemade rabbit treats in her books, I Like You: Hospitality Under the Influence and Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People, but you can find them both online. Amy’s bunny has always gone nuts for these (mine, too)! The holidays are just around the corner. If you like to bake, these would make a great treat for any rabbit or rabbit owner: Elliot’s Cilantro Treats (scroll down) and Katie’s Smack Snacks for Rabbits
