She’s the type of celeb with an Instagram feed to fawn over (silly selfies and stylish landscapes both included) and a completely down-to-earth, extraordinarily kind, and bubbly disposition for the win. And if that combo isn’t enough to make you want to be her BFF, you should know that Jamie Chung has the deets on a new low-cal wine from Brancott Estate and all the must-have girls’ night essentials. Basically, if you want to plan the slumber party of the century, you should have the newly engaged actress curate it. We caught up with Jamie, who is the spokesperson for Brancott Estate Flight Song, and talked wine, rom-coms, The Real World, and guilty-pleasure TV. Take a look at what she said below!
OK! Magazine: Why do you love Brancott Estate Flight Song Wines?
Jamie Chung: Well, I’m a wine drinker. When they came to me and were like, ‘We have this awesome wine. It’s less calories—still [has a] bold flavor.’ I was like, ‘I would love to do it. I love wine.’ But the idea I had in mind was garden parties or picnics or movies at the cemetery.There are always so many great activities to do outside. It’s a great way to bring people together, and you don’t have to worry about the extra calories.
OK!: It is low-cal, and we were thinking that this would be great for girls’ night. What are your essentials for girls’ night?
JC: A good movie. I feel like a substantial amount of time needs to pass so that, in terms of catching up, there is a lot of juicy gossip. It would have to be a pretty good movie and good food. Always wine. We would probably be doing our nails.
OK!: Do you have any favorite rom-coms?
JC: I would have to say Something’s Gotta Give. It’s so good.
OK!: Love Diane Keaton
JC: She’s pretty amazing. The writer—Nancy Meyers—she’s wicked smart. She writes and directs. It’s pretty cool.
OK!: Speaking of acting, how did being on The Real World prepare you for acting on screen?
JC: I guess the only thing is ignoring the cameras. In terms of waking up and going to bed, [on The Real World] literally, there’s a camera in your face. In terms of filming, you have to ignore it. I felt like that helped. But in terms of reality and scripted, it’s a whole different skill set. We’re constantly learning. The only thing that scared me away [from reality TV] was that they went for the drama, and sometimes, people ham up the drama. My experience was pretty awesome.
OK!: So do you have any guilty-pleasure TV shows you’re loving right now?
JC: The Real World Ex-plosion is brilliant. I don’t know why they did not do that sooner. It’s so good. It’s my vice.
OK!: We love your blog. It’s so great. How long does it take you to figure out the outfits you’re going to post?
JC: I’ll be going through magazines, and I’ll dog-ear and want to do my spin. I found old photos of my mom, and even though the photos were taken in the 70s and 60s, I kind of want to do a recreation shoot. All the outfits that she is wearing, I would create a modern version.
OK!: Do you follow any celebrity Tumblrs or blogs?
JC: I guess they are celebrities in their own right. I love Sincerely Jules. They’re all from California.
