FriendZ! Miss me? I missed you more! Really I did. Last week was a wild one. The start of February ushered in a frenzy of festivities, both professional and personal, and sadly I never made it back here.
It’s a new week now, and I am ready to rock it. ABZs are back this later week when I’ll cover the nuts and bolts of a solid affiliate program proposal. If you’ve been dabbling in affiliate and you’re ready to offer it as an official service in 2023, this post is for you! From a sales perspective, this post will help you organize your pitch and professional offerings so you know how to sell them to clients. And from a practical perspective, it’s going to give you a high-level overview of how an affiliate offering works within your PR workflow. Stay tuned for more later in the week! It will be for paid subscribers only, so please make sure you show your support! Want a group rate? Just ask.
I’m also publishing some new Pitch Bitch content I’ve been promising, so keep an eye out for that as well. As always, if there is a topic you’d like me to cover, please ask away! One of my favorite things about the Substack platform is helping people understand the world of PR and affiliate marketing just a little bit better. If there is something you’ve been wondering about, struggling with, or just focused on, drop it in the comments, and maybe I’ll feature it here next.
Today we’ve got a quick newZ roundup and some funnieZ to kick off your week in the right direction. I’ll see you all back here in a couple days!
Topping the list of NewZ is the premiere of the Real Housewives of New Jersey tomorrow night on Bravo at 9pm EST. I’m already popping corn.
Roseanne Barr will star in her first standup special in nearly 20 years. It’s called Roseanne Barr: Cancel This and it premieres Monday, Feb 13 on Fox Nation. As long as she isn’t singing, I’m good with it.
Speaking of singing, last night was the 65th edition of music’s biggest night, the Grammys. Beyoncé — now officially Grammy Queen, with the most of any artists of all time at 32 — got stuck in traffic and missed the award presentation for Best R&B Song. Stars, they’re just like us.
In this week’s episode of grown men acting less grown than they ought to, Tom Brady is posting thirst traps, and Ben Affleck doesn’t have time for the Grammys.
Super Bowl Monday could become a state holiday in Tennessee. All Americans are in absolute agreement. Fixing this and Daylight Savings could win someone a presidential election.
Speaking of Super Bowl, I’m hosting this year! I’ve already got my Gordo’s Cheese Dip, Wholly, La Victoria, Herdez, and Chi-Chi’s stocked up. What are you cooking?
Check out this recipe for Italian Sub Dip - aka Hoagie Dip- on my TikTok. Want to see it on Insta? Click here.

Today’s a great day for birthdayZ. Bob Marley was born on this day in 1945. So was Babe Ruth, whose birthday is February 6, 1945. One love and one swing of the bat!
Let’s make this day better.
Additional #ZlataThoughts for you: it’s INSANE that these celebrities going to award shows can’t even FKN blink wrong without some meme being created. Poor Ben Affleck. No wonder no one wants to participate in anything anymore. These FunnieZ wouldn’t be complete without some of those meme gems though, right?
Have a great day, friendZ!
How did I miss that RHONJ was coming back already?! Can't wait!
SO ready for RHONJ!
