From age 18 until now, Tereze Gruntmane has learned much, including how to save a marriage and start an internationally successful clothing line. On Friday night, November 3, with a story that spans decades and embraces all emotions, Tereze will take us on her own “Jump Off A Cliff” journey.
Tereze Gruntmane came to the US from Latvia in 1996 with her husband and daughter. In addition to having two more children—each nine years apart—she is the founder/designer of ZAZA couture, a boutique children’s apparel line. Currently writing a book about being present in relationships and avoiding affairs, Tereze speaks her mind, even when unpopular.
Theme: “In the Doghouse”
Storyteller: Waye Applebaum
Fresh off of his “Push the Envelope” appearance last month, Wayne Applebaum returned with his hilarious deadpan delivery to highlight how becoming a new father turned an otherwise sane man into a “major loon.”
Wayne Applebaum is a man that gets things done. And this month, he’ll return to the Oral Fixation for “In the Doghouse” to talk about the time he and his wife moved into a new house, had a baby, adopted a dog, commuted back and forth to his job in Sweden and hosted a Thanksgiving party all in the same month.
Wayne Applebaum spends his waking hours at Avalon Consulting, LLC. He lives in Plano with his wife, Beth, two cats and two dogs. They have two adult children. He loves the Dallas Arts District, TITAS, the DTC, the DMA, Whole Foods and is hopelessly addicted to binge-watching West Wing.
She can handle any shit the world throws her way. And next week Rhoni Golden will take the Oral Fixation stage, using her poop-filled tales to spread some honest to goodness autism awareness in “Writing On The Wall.”
Rhoni Golden lives in Lakewood, where life is never dull. She shares her house with a husband, three children, two dogs and two hermit crabs. Four years ago, she traded in her job as a physical therapist to become an advocate for her son. She owes her sanity to yoga and a good attitude.
Theme: “Miss the Boat”
Storyteller: Joel Page
