On the past November 19th, Rachel Bloom presented her book, I Want to be Where the Normal People Are, where she shares a hilarious collection of personal essays and poems exploring insecurity, fame, anxiety, female friendships, her love of Disney, and more. Yael was a guest on her latest event via Zoom, to which, unfortunately, we weren’t able to get a ticket to attend. Though, the lovely Julie, offered us 3 photos of Yael while on the zoom call with Rachel and gave us a small review on what it was about.
Yael talked about how much she related to Rachel’s book in terms of being bullied and the idea of not feeling “normal”. At one point she was telling Rachel how to do insults in Hebrew. Besides playing her character on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend (Trina) she would want to play Rebecca but didn’t want to have to sing but Rachel said she could be dubbed.
