Recently, I had the pleasure attending the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 World Premiere as well as the ABC TV Event and got to learn more about each, meet cast members, and more!
This event was hosted by Disney (all expenses were paid in exchange for press coverage).
As excited as I was to meet the amazing Katy Mixon, I think my husband was even more excited! He has been a huge fan for a long time and when I got the chance to interview her regarding her most recent role on American Housewife, he was in awe.

Interview with Katy Mixon
Katy On Portraying Katie
“I took on this role right after Mike & Molly ended, and four days later I walked into this AMERICAN HOUSEWIFE room. What was wild was, I’m not like her. I’m not Katie Otto. I’m just, I don’t get mad at a green juice.
If you’re going to do yoga, I think that’s awesome! You’re bettering yourself, do you know what, I love people. I love people.
I’m real spontaneous. I love celebrating people, what makes them happy. I’m just so opposite of what Katie Otto is. So it’s just fun to play.”
Katy Mixon On Being A Mom
Panel: Now that you are going to be a mom, is there one of the characteristics from Katie Otto that you would take, that one thing that you’re like, I have to take that away? You know, be just like her.
Katy: I don’t really know. She’s really strong. I’m really strong, you know. It’s just, I just rock & roll in a different way.
I don’t know what I would take from her. I love her so much, that Katie Otto. I don’t know what character trait – I think this is the thing – she’s quite fearless. But I’m quite fearless too. Just doing it in a different way.
