What Is Mayim Bialik Up To Today?


Mayim Bialik has earned plenty of accolades,
countless devoted fans, and an impressively large fortune thanks to her role as neurobiologist
Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory. But she hasn’t stopped hustling since the
series wrapped. This is what Mayim Bialik is up to today. “The Big Bang Theory’s over. Can you believe it?” It didn’t take long for Bialik to start missing
her Big Bang Theory co-stars after the show ended. And according to her social media, it looks
like it wasn’t easy for her to say goodbye to the likes of Kaley Cuoco and Melissa Rauch. Bialik has also reminisced about her early
days on the show with a picture of herself and Jim Parsons, which she captioned: “I’m pretty sure this was the first Comic
Con after I was made a regular on the show. I was still just getting to know the cast…Jim
and I had done a few photoshoots together, but I was still finding my footing as a cast
member. Really good memories.” “From the first moment in that coffee shop,
I knew that there was something special between us. Even though I did work on a study that disproved
love at first sight.” But Big Bang isn’t the only series that’s
bringing Mayim all the feels. “I must be allergic to your perfume. I’m not wearing any perfume. Then it must be your deodorant. Well I suppose that’s possible.” In late September 2019, she took to Twitter
to post a gif of herself from Blossom, which she starred on as a young actress in the early
’90s. Bialik’s time on The Big Bang Theory may be
officially over, but she’s not done with her work on camera. Along with popping up on the Crossword Show
and Match Game in August 2019, she’s also the voice of “The B.O.O.T.H.” in The Inspector
Chronicles. But these aren’t the only projects that have
been filling up her schedule. Mayim posted on Instagram: “[Jim Parsons] and I are working together
again!!! He and I are joining to executive produce
a show for me to star in based on the BBC show Miranda. It’s called Carla…We could not be more excited
to work together and bring you this show which features SO MANY CATS!!!!” “I guess there are two kinds of people in
this world. People who like helping their dog. And then picking up their dog’s warm feces. And then there are people who like cats.” According to Deadline, the comedy focuses
on, quote, “a 39-year-old woman who opens a Cat Café in Louisville, Kentucky.” That sounds like it will be purr-fectly entertaining. Although Bialik could spend her entire career
starring in TV shows and consider herself an undeniable success, or, frankly, retire
and live comfortably for the rest of her days, she’s decided to try a different role in the
entertainment industry. She’s set to write and direct her own debut
comedy-drama, As Sick As They Made Us, based on her own personal experiences. “In a country where one in five people are
affected by a mental health condition, it’s time for all of us to step up and change the
conversation.” Mayim revealed to Deadline, “After my father’s passing four and a half
years ago, I decided to explore the complexity of mental illness and familial responsibility,
especially as it falls on women, as well as to highlight the redemptive nature of a family’s
love as they navigate death and continue to live life on their own terms.” With acting, writing, and directing under
her belt, Bialik is also making major moves on the production side of the business. In August 2019, it was announced that she’d
signed what was called a “multi-faceted deal” with Warner Bros., involving her production
company, Sad Clown Productions. And the deal includes a few other potentially
lucrative perks, such as acting opportunities. She told Deadline, “Warner Bros. has been my creative home for
over a decade. And I’m thrilled to be continuing my relationship
with them as I develop projects as an actor and a producer.” Bialik named Mackenzie Gabriel-Vaught as Head
of Development and Production in her company, a wise choice considering the two industry
players are very familiar with how the other operates behind the scenes. Bialik explained, “After working with Mackenzie during my entire
time at The Big Bang Theory, I have grown to respect and value her humor, candor, intelligence,
and professionalism. There’s no one else I would rather start this
new phase of my career with than Mackenzie and I can’t wait to start showing what we
can do together!” If the result of these two working together
in the future is anything like their past success with The Big Bang Theory, then fans
will love whatever they bring to the screen. Is there anything Bialik can’t do? This TV star even reinvented herself as a
popular YouTube personality. She first launched her self-titled channel
in 2015 with a video on what it’s like to attend the Emmys. “Oh, ok it’s working. Hi I’m Mayim Bialik. Oh I should look in the camera.” And she’s since posted videos like “A Love
Letter to Young Women of Today,” in which she shares her thoughts on how wonderfully
complex modern ladies are. “Sometimes you confuse me, but you know what? That’s ok. I can be me and you can be you.” Bialik also seemed to know even back in 2016
that her channel would help her fans deal with times when they weren’t able to watch
The Big Bang Theory. So she wrote on one of her vlogs, “Missing The Big Bang Theory? Or just missing me? Well, to help fill the Big Bang sized hole
in your heart, I am officially premiering my first Vlog entry [and] I’ll be rolling
out a new video every two weeks to give you an inside look at my life, my brain, and how
I make sense of the world as me.” “I’m gonna try to describe my last Big Bang
tape day without using the letter S.” From there, Bialik has entertained herself
and her viewers with quirky challenges, and has offered her nearly 750,000 subscribers
advice on quote “non-trendy” yoga tips, house hacks, living alone, and even what not to
say to a divorced woman. Surely valuable advice, indeed. “I do like to hear that I have a lot to offer. It’s very nice to hear that, so thank you.” According to USA Today in 2019, Bialik has
quote “always been a writer.” Need proof? She’s used that interest to pen a number of
her own books over the years, including 2012’s Beyond the Sling: A Real-Life Guide to Raising
Confident, Loving Children the Attachment Parenting Way and 2014’s Mayim’s Vegan Table:
More than 100 Great-Tasting and Healthy Recipes from My Family to Yours, which she co-wrote
with pediatrician Dr. Jay Gordon. Bialik’s also the writer behind 2017’s Girling
Up: How to Be Strong, Smart and Spectacular and 2019’s Boying Up: How to Be Brave, Bold
and Brilliant. “Are you an annoying mom? Do you think you aren’t? You might be. I am!” Both books utilize the star’s real-life scientific
background as a neuroscientist to help young people deal with the changes and challenges
that life presents. Looks like fans of Mayim Bialik have a few
titles to add to their reading list if they haven’t already. “All that stands between every girl in this
world and her destiny, is information about her body, her brain and her potential.” Bialik joined plenty of other celebrities,
like Zooey Deschanel, Kourtney Kardashian, and Meghan Markle (before she went royal),
by claiming her corner of the internet and launching her own online publication. Grok Nation went live in 2015 and initially
focused on contemporary issues before switching to a women’s lifestyle site in 2018. While discussing the website with USA Today
in 2019, Bialik explained that it’s quote, “like if (Gwyneth Paltrow’s) Goop was for
the rest of us.” The actress went on to say that after tackling
pieces for a Jewish parenting website, she wanted to continue to put her thoughts down
into words. She said, “I started my own site because I wanted to
write about things other than just Jewish parenting, and also I really wanted to have
more ownership over the brand that my writing seemed to fall into. What I try and reflect on Grok Nation is the
person I am. It’s complicated and sometimes it’s messy,
and there’s a lot of honesty and also a lot of opportunities for joy and for fun, but
many people I think seem to really resonate with a website that is really dealing with
the messy bits of life in an unapologetic way.” While Grok Nation built up a loyal following
and expanded to include pieces by other writers, it’s been put on hold with no new updates
since June 2019. Along with Bialik’s career-related pursuits,
The Big Bang Theory alum is also putting her fame to good use by supporting causes that
she believes in. You can see her efforts on social media, where
she posts calls to action, such as promoting her 2019 appearance at The Wrap’s Power Women
Summit in Los Angeles. Bialik also shared a message on National Voter
Registration Day, which reminded people to cast their ballot. In September 2019, the star took to Twitter
to ask her more than 680,000 followers to sign a petition to quote “end The Great Betrayal
of lions in South Africa.” Bialik had retweeted a post from the Born
Free Foundation, which, according to the site, “Campaigns to end the captive breeding of
lions and other predators for canned hunting and other forms of commercial exploitation.” “This is a wonderful way to educate people
about animals and let them live in an environment that’s comfortable for them and safe for them.” The actress’ influence certainly seems to
be working, as she received plenty of messages of support from followers. “Hi there, I’m Mayim Bialik. Welcome to my messy kitchen.” Bialik is proudly Jewish and likes to share
how she honors her spirituality. If you subscribe to her YouTube channel, you
might have noticed a video she posted in April 2019 dedicated to cooking for Passover, in
which she whips up Matzo ball tzimmes with apricot sauce. “A modern twist on an old-world recipe.” Fans who follow Bialik on Instagram will have
seen posts about her preparation for Rosh Hashana, which included a whole lot of baking. She wrote: “We frum folks do all sorts of ancient things
which sound (are?) strange but this life has grown on me so much. And this past year I’ve been so excited all
over again about things like burning a little bit of challah for the Priests of a Temple
destroyed thousands of years ago…Happy 5780.” Along with her many showbiz hats, Bialik is
also a devoted mom to her son Miles, who was born in 2005, and Frederick, who arrived in
the family three years later. But while some parents step back from their
high-profile jobs when kids come onto the scene, Bialik put her science career on the
back Bunsen burner and returned to Hollywood in order to spend more time with her kids,
and secure health insurance. She told Yahoo! Entertainment in 2012, “I’m glad that I completed my Ph.D. and I’m
very proud of it. But the life of a research professor would
not have suited my needs in terms of what kind of parenting I wanted to do.” “I now have a teen and a tween and it’s scary.” Bialik regularly discusses her parenting style
in her YouTube videos, with topics that range from quote “How to Raise Vegan Kids,” to “How
I Discipline My Boys (Without Shaming Them),” and the super sweet “Baking with My Boys.” And it makes sense that she’s willing to share
her journey. According to Canada.com, Mayim admits that
even though she’s a familiar face to fans around the world… “I came to parenting the way most of us do,
knowing nothing and trying to learn everything.…For me, to see people like Gwen Stefani talking
about breast-feeding and wearing her baby in a sling is tremendous. This is the best kind of trend there can be.” Bialik may not seem like the kind of star
who indulges in a lavish lifestyle, but if she ever wanted to go overboard with excessive
spending, she certainly has the funds to do it. The actress was originally making $175,000
per episode on The Big Bang Theory, which is obviously an amount that many people outside
of the entertainment industry would love to make for a few days of work. But that was just a sliver of the $450,000
she would eventually rake in for every single episode of the show. The pay raise was partly due to the fact that
Jim Parsons, Johnny Galecki, Kaley Cuoco, Simon Helberg, and Kunal Nayyar reportedly
took a $100,000 per episode pay cut so that Bialik and Melissa Rauch would receive more
money. At the time, Bialik told Build that she was
thrilled to be returning to the show, saying, “I don’t just mean it like, ‘I’m making so
much money. I’ll never make this money again, so I might
as well make as much as I can now.’ That’s not how I frame it. But I will never be given this opportunity
again.” Thanks to Bialik’s staggering Big Bang salary,
as well as the money she earns from her many other projects, Celebrity Net Worth estimates
that the star has a fortune of $25 million. Big Bang equals…cha-ching! Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Nicki Swift videos about your

  1. Probably raising her children like a lot of parents including celebs. She’s working on something new with Jim Parsons as well

  2. I admit I haven’t even watched the entire video before commenting but I wanted to comment that the title question makes it seem like she’s fallen off the radar, sort of speak.

    It hasn’t even been a year since the last episode was aired… can she breathe? Lol It just comes across as she’s been gone for a decade or something like that ?

  3. I like how at 1:50 she implies you don’t have to clean up after cats like you do dogs yet you have to clean up feces AND pee from cats. I guess because it’s presumably not warm it makes a difference to her? ?
