Interview: Kyle Stefanski, Julie Barzman Talk Parenting, Her Blog and Rhonda’s Kiss

This week Celebrity Baby Scoop got the chance to talk to actor Kyle Stefanski and his girlfriend Julie Barzman all about parenting, her blog and his charity Rhonda’s Kiss. The first thing that Kyle said to me was that Julie was “the glue that holds their family together,” which set the mood for a great interview with an amazing couple.

Kyle’s new movie

Kyle actually just got finished with a movie called Gotti where he got the chance to film a few scenes with John Travolta. He said this movie was his “best film experience to date.” This mobster movie is already out on every platform, except Netflix so make sure you check it out. Julie and Kyle went to the world premiere in the South of France and it was their first time to take their son Oliver Kingsley Stefanski on a plane and they were also able to take him to visit the area that Julie is from, which was exciting.

Julie’s parenting blog

Julie is now focused on being a mom and has added a parenting blog to her daily life. She explained that her mother and also Kyle’s both passed away before she got pregnant with Oliver. This made her feel very lonely during pregnancy not having them to lean on and ask questions. Julie has blogged before, but when she had her son she decided to start a parenting blog called Jewels Barzman which is her nickname. This is a place that women can go for advice and not feel alone.

Julie and Kyle also did reveal that they plan to add to their family at some point, they are just not sure when. This is something everyone will be on the watch for news about and you know Julie will share it on her blog.

Rhonda’s Kiss

When talking to Kyle, he shared his passion for his charity, Rhonda’s Kiss. As I explained to Kyle, if you search for him on the Internet, you will see that this is a huge focus of his and what he is known for now. Kyle explained that his mom passed away back in November of 2014 from pancreatic cancer and he decided to “turn the negative into a positive.” They did everything they could to save his mother’s life, but until then he didn’t realize how difficult it could be to fight cancer.

While going through this with his mom, Kyle realized that there are a lot of hidden costs involved with a family member having cancer. He started the charity Rhonda’s Kiss originally to help people with these costs, but they have really expanded and are now even doing fundraisers for back to school and Mother’s Day. They brought in several moms and fixed them up, gave them wigs and let them surprise their family with their new looks. They have a lot of new things coming with this charity and Kyle is doing great things with it.

If you want to keep up with what Kyle Stefanski and Julie Barzman are up to they both update their Instagrams for the fans to see.

Reese Witherspoon & Ava: Innovator Awards In NYC

Mama’s mini-me! Academy Award-winning actress Reese Witherspoon rocked the red carpet with daughter Ava, 18, at the WSJ Magazine’s 2017 Innovator Awards on Wednesday (November 1). The lookalike duo were all smiles in their matching black outfits at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

The Wild actress, 41, rocked a Giorgio Armani dress, Jimmy Choo shoes, and Cartier jewelry while carrying a Tyler Ellis clutch. Meanwhile, Ava went for a color-coordinated look in a Balmain dress and Gianvito Rossi sandals.

WSJ recently named Reese their Entertainment Innovator of the Year and put her on the cover of their Innovators Issue.

The Oscar winner — who is also mom to sons Deacon, 14, and Tennessee, 5 — opened up to WSJ about her booming career.

On her many talents: “I know I’m good at things. And I’m over being bashful about it. Do basketball players have to sit there and act coy? Tell me something: Does LeBron James twiddle his thumbs and say, ‘Jeez, I’m kind of great at shooting, and I guess I’m OK at dribbling and passing’? No, he’s like, ‘I’m amazing! I rock!’ I wish more actresses had that kind of bravado.”

On being ambitious: “I was never going to be an actor who lives in their car because their dream was so big. [If acting didn’t work] I would have gone from Stanford to medical school and become a surgeon. Right now, I’d probably be the premier surgeon and pediatric cardiologist at Vanderbilt University … What? I’m just being honest. I’m ambitious, and I’m over hiding that.”

On the production company Hello Sunshine (which absorbed her last company Pacific Standard): “I wasn’t being offered opportunities to grow my company until I got that third hit. A guy has one hit at Sundance, and he gets Jurassic World.”

On women in Hollywood: “We women are too talented to be fighting over roles like this. Laura, Nicole and I kept looking around saying, ‘We would never be on set together!’ My part is equitable to her part, which is equitable to Laura’s part, which is equitable to Shailene’s and Zoë’s.”

On her line Draper James: “Well, I was being approached by other brands that were based in the Northeast, and I thought, I don’t really know anything about that, but what I do know is how beautiful the South is, and I had this incredible upbringing there.”

On always holding on to that Elle Woods mentality: “You can be unapologetically feminine but also smart and driven. At least once a week I have a woman come up to me and say, ‘I went to law school because of Legally Blonde.’ It’s incredible.”
