IWS Welcomes Nicole Russin AKA: Richarde

Holaaaaa and Cheers!

IWS World Media in association with IWS productions would like to welcome Nicole Russin to the I’m With Stupid podcast this Wednesday, July 18, 2012! Ms. Russin AKA: The Legendary Rich├írde, a bestselling cookbook author, musician, journalist, model and Renaissance woman. Her latest cookbook, “Ostentatious Cupcakes” is racing up the Amazon charts and is full of creative and innovative ways to make the all-American favorite. Her first cookbook, published in December 2010, “The Non-Diet Real Cookbook: Easy Recipes to Stay Skinny Eating Anything You Want and Learn How to Cook!” was based on a mixture of recipes from abroad, healthy food, and the Midwest’s classic roots: soul food, German cooking, and Irish cuisine blended together

Nicole began her journalism career at the age of 13 when she began hosting a video series for PBS titled Illinois Stories which was syndicated in Illinois, Missouri and Iowa. In addition to local and state politicians, Ms. Russin even snagged a Q&A with soon to be presidential candidate John Kerry. Nicole continues to work on her journalism career to this day having interviewed people from the political, business, sports and entertainment worlds.

Nicole graduated from the University of Texas at the age of 19. After graduation she decided to compete in the Miss Texas pageant even though she had never participated in any beauty pageants while growing up. The end result was a fun and hugely popular guest blog on Huffington Post which became one of the top five most popular reads on the site in 2009.

By the age of 21 Nicole was in NYC looking for journalism work. At the same time she decided to seek out modeling work and it didn’t take long to land some opportunities with a number of different agencies. She mostly worked in the beauty/hair/makeup categories, but as with everything else in her life, she doesn’t want to just settle for that. Being a very ambitious person, Nicole is working hard to make the jump to the couture lines WHILE continuing to purse professional writing and journalism gigs.

In her spare time, Russin records songs in every genre under the sun. An opera lover, Russin likes performing each genre differently down to pronunciation “because every musical style should have its own performance method and be felt like an opera performance.” She sings out, talk sings, gets whispery, shouts, performs overdramatically, and sings emotionlessly.  (She does know how to sound traditionally good when necessary also.) Russin taught herself how to compose sheet music while bored in some seventh grade class she can’t remember, forced herself to learn music production on her home computers, and used fellow students as recording test subjects as she discovered her inner Max Martin. In June 2010, she released an art pop double album called Sex Appeal, Love, Confessions Parts 1 & 2 with its additional material album My Other Half, put out a few corresponding psychedelic 60′s/70‘s singles, got together with Russian tennis star and California transplant homegrown DJ Dmitry Tursunov for a Studio 54 meets modern disco sound on The Dmitry Tursunov Experience EP, and will soon release a 1980′s style follow-up album.

So, as you can see Nicole is a busy woman with a lot of interests and talents. This is going to be an awesome show! Be sure to join us on I'm With Stupid Wednesday, July 18, 2012 for all the fun and excitement!

She's like a one-woman renaissance army! Maybe you can get her to do some talk-singing...I just heard about this last week from a guy who was talk-singing Mr. Roboto.

I'll try to get up an hour earlier!

Mike: I'm starting to get the impression that you're not a morning person. hehe

Jo: I bet that not only can Nicole talk-sing, but she is probably also working on a Double CD of talk-singing classics.
