A born and bred New Yorker, Jill Kopelman Kargman, age 40 (yes, she embraces her real age), is not afraid to dish about life on the Upper East Side. Kargman graduated in three years with honors from Yale University where she was an art history major. While in school, she starred in many productions including Sister Mary Ignatius Explains It All for You and Once in Doubt. She also was a member of the a cappella group 'New Blue.' Kargman then attended the British America Drama Academy (BADA) at Stanford and studied with Richard Dreyfuss and Marsha Mason.
After graduating in 1995, Kargman started her writing career in the magazine world as an assistant and has since written more than 200 articles for publications including Vogue, ELLE, Harper's Bazaar, GQ, Condé Nast Traveler, Departures, and Allure. She also created the column EyeSpy for Style.com, which ran for five years.
The torture and hilarity of her work experiences at the bottom of the magazine hierarchy inspired her 2000 Sundance movie Intern. She then began working in television and wrote for several shows for MTV including So Five Minutes Ago and the MTV News doc series Who Is.
After her magazine, movie, and television work, Kargman began writing novels to give her more flexibility to be home with her three children: Sadie, Ivy, and Fletch. She is a New York Times best-selling author of multiple books, including The Ex-Mrs. Hedgefund, her personal essay collection, Sometimes I Feel Like a Nut (which was #3 on the humor chart behind Chelsea Handler and David Sedaris), as well as Momzillas, which was translated into fourteen languages and appeared on charts worldwide.
She is also a talented tastemaker who is currently moonlighting as a lyricist for Daryl Roth's new musical. Additionally, she is deathly afraid of clowns and doesn't trust people who like cilantro.
