Lights, camera, action!  KIMBERLY M. WETHERELL, filmmaker extraordinaire, Sunshine State refugee, developer of TNB A&C’s “21 Questions,” inveterate foodie and baked goods aficionado, multi-hyphenate, six worder, true blonde.

Not, emphatically, a Twit…although her genius does not extend to games played in church auditoriums.

Adherent of the brevity-is-the-soul-of-wit school of Oscar handicapping.  No, really.

On the subject of feminine body hair removal, she waxes poetic…and Brazilian.

Wrote the book on online dating.  Or at least appropriated one for her use (and our enjoyment).

Possible PETAphile.  An a-moo-zing, if unengaged, chanteuse, who knows what she wants in a man (hint: don’t work for Cablevision).

She shoots to conquer…and also to show videos of TNBers reading at the Literary Experience — her brainchild, incidentally.  TNB would not be the same without her.


The Nervous Breakdown is an online culture magazine and literary community. It was founded in 2006. Our masthead can be found here.

    Ah, this is a great way to wake up on a Sunday morning – to a Kimberly anthology complete with kissy lips.
    And now I can go and make a coffee and read your fantastic work and I’ll be all set for a wonderful day.
    You are such a beautiful cover girl!!

    What do you mean she’s blonde? What the what? I just clicked on that link. I feel like my whole reality has been upset. If you need me, I’ll be lying down.

    • Kimberly says:

      Oh no, Gloria! I thought you knew!!!

      If it’s any consolation, there’s a whole heap of gingers on one side of my family, and besides – what kind of color is “natural” for hair anyway??? 🙂

  3. Jude says:

    The last line in the bio featuring the gorgeous Kimberly M. Wetherell says it all…”TNB would not be the same without her.” (What does the M stand for?)

    Great picture – very pouty and very socksy!

    • Kimberly says:

      And I love you right back.

      It’s here! RELEASE WEEK!!!!

      I couldn’t possibly be happier for you! I’ve already scouted the Borders where I’ll be buying my copy on Tuesday morning. 😀

  4. Simone says:

    Can we talk about socks now? 🙂

  5. I want to look like Kimberly in a photo… maybe she’s thinking about socks. It’s all about the socks… I need to get some socks….

      I’m going to have to give full credit to the lovely and extraordinarily talented Melissa Weidemann (http://www.barkingphoto.com) for the glorious headshots.

      Note: The irony is not lost on me that she usually shoots dogs. 😀

      She and spent about two hours playing in Central Park one day and she made me look absolutely drop dead.

      If only she could follow me around every day, now wouldn’t THAT be lovely???


  6. Not to mention that Kimberly is serious fun. On top of being talented. Life is THAT unfair.
    (What? Jealous? MOI? Naaaah. Not really)

    • Kimberly says:

      You better NOT be jealous little missy. You are a heaping helping of fun and talent yourself!!! (Not to mention so generous as to travel to an entirely different country to see a 20-minute film!!! Egads!)

      Never will I forget such kindness.

  10. I miss you, Kimberly.

    It’s a treat to see you here.

  11. Joe Daly says:

    Belated congrats, Kimberly! It’s been fun taking a stroll through your archive. That Snickers wrapper on the floor is not mine, btw. No idea who left that there. Savages…

    Well done!

    Girl, you are dripping with sauce. Love!
