Doretta Lau on Ali Wong’s marketing and publicity blitz
It is such a pleasure seeing what Ali Wong is doing in support of the release of the movie Always Be My Maybe. She’s on tour (Milk and Money–she’s had to add a ton of extra shows because she’s selling out venues) and she’s getting read to drop a book called Dear Girls in the fall.
