On Monday, June 6th, Andrew Miller, Eden Riegel, Catherine and Heather were in New York City for the 13th Annual Webby Awards presentation. They walked the red carpet, shot a vlog whereby C&H harass Eden while on the red carpet, and then kept fans informed with constant tweets about the happenings (Eden was apparently nervous, drinking and felt up by Sarah Silverman, Catherine was her usual snarky self and Heather was trolling).

(vlogs have sadly been removed from YouTube and the IB website…)

From all indications, it was a party of the highest order. Except, of course, when Eden fretted she might puke at the podium while attempting to give her 5-word speech she may or may not be able to remember (Um, Eden, it was 5 WORDS! You’re an Emmy winner, five words shouldn’t shake you that badly), when she was in the bathroom and missed seeing Martha Stewart and when she began to channel Catherine in feeling a little bitchy over Cameron Diaz’s pants…

Now, I will admit that not only am I writing this blog because I love Imaginary Bitches, Andrew Miller and Eden Riegel, but in a contest held by the Brain-trust at IB, my 5-word speech was chosen by fans to be delivered by Eden when accepting her Webby…

Kudos to the Webby Awards for their innovative approach to awards banquets and instead of letting winners ramble on until the orchestra plays them off with a weird rendition of Shaft or something… (I’m looking at you Nighttime Emmy’s and the Oscars).

The bigger kudos go to the IB gang for allowing fans to offer, then vote on, Eden’s acceptance speech. The level of accessibility to fans shown by Andrew Miller, Eden Riegel and all those involved with the show is amazing. Plus, to hear an Emmy winner deliver your line to a crowd that includes the likes of Sarah Silverman, Jimmy Fallon, Martha Stewart, Molly Sims, Seth Meyers, Lisa Kudrow and The Muppet Show’s Beaker is incredible…

So congratulations of the highest order to Andrew Miller, Eden Riegel, Imaginary Bitches and the cast and crew of the show, for receiving an award given to honor the best of Internet content. Here is proof that this show is a phenomenal success and will only get better.

And thank you for being so in touch with your fans.
