  • Melissa is a dyed-in-the-wool aficionado of blue collar comedies such as Roseanne, Grace Under Fire, Laverne and Shirley and My Name is Earl. She is such a Laverne and Shirley devotee that she owns several pieces of memorabilia from the show, including one of Laverne's signature L-emblazoned sweaters and a chair from Cowboy Bills.
  • Melissa grew up watching "Roseanne," and, despite her love for the show and its spinoff, she thinks "The Conners" works a lot better without lead Roseanne Barr. She's also glad Darlene and David broke up and likes Darlene's relationship with Ben more.
  • Melissa conducted an interview for Newsweek with Christopher Schonberger and Sean Evans, the founders of Hot Ones and First We Feast. The interview was retweeted through their official social media.
