If you love Zooey Deschanel, nostalgia, television, and lady-friendly jokes, then chances are that you're a fan of HelloGiggles. The site, which was founded by Deschanel along with TV writer Molly McAleer and producer Sophia Rossi, features the perfect blend of female empowerment and endearing entertainment that the web was always lacking, which is why everyone—especially fashion girls—can't get enough of it.
While Deschanel definitely brings the celebrity factor, it is Rossi's hilariously blunt humor and refreshing tweets that make her the everyday girl's BFF. Today, Los Angeles, I'm Yours featured a tour of Rossi's Beverly Hills digs (which is also HG's "upgraded office space"), where we learned that the former Hills and The City producer is a major homebody, can't go too long without looking at her Blackberry, and specifically loves living in Beverly Hills because the police department is "really great." She has a pretty sweet Louis Vuitton collection, too. Read the full interview and see her home snaps here.
