This hilarious journalist started her career at just 18 years old. Since then she has written for People, Rolling Stone, OC Weekly, The LA Times, Maxim and Vogue, just to name a few. She has also appeared on a number of television shows including "A&E Biography", "Chelsea Lately", and a number of news shows. Did I also mention that she used to be the guitarist in a punk band? Yup, she's done that too.
Her most current endeavors include presenting the news on "The Adam Carolla Show", and hosting her own show, "Alison Rosen is Your New Best Friend" on Ustream. She has written a number of fantastic articles and interviews which you can see at her website HERE.
She is a great team player, allowing the ACE guys to set up a "March Madness" bracket to win a date with her. 16 men are competing to win a date with her, and she is an absolutely great sport about it, even when she describes some of the contenders as "rapey". On the "Adam Carolla Show" she also announced her plans to write two self books, one written from the prospective of a drug addict, before she ever gets addictive to drugs (a book which is still untitled), and also a pregnancy book called "What I Would Expect if I Were Expecting". Her reason for writing the books now, instead of when she develops a drug habit, or gets pregnant, is that she has free time now, so she might as well write it as long as she does. She has presented excerpts from both books on the show, and they are WONDERFUL.
Her good looks, and fabulous comedic timing are the reason I chose Alison Rosen for Hot Nerd of the Week!
