“Fresh Off The Boat” Star Chelsey Crisp On Honey And Jessica’s Feminist Friendship: BUST Interview 1296 730 Chase Jennings

Chelsey Crisp is a lot smarter and cooler than you know. You probably recognize Crisp from her role as Honey on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat, the Huangs’ loveable, beauty-queen-like neighbor. Honey is Jessica’s best friend, Nicole’s stepmom, and a fan favorite character (because Eddie is cool and all, but anyone that can consistently wear that much neon Spandex deserves recognition). Far from the stereotypical “Hollywood type,” Crisp is calm and casual, joking about how much more glamorous Honey is than she herself and self-consciously laughing at her on-set reputation for always celebrating the end of the work week with noodles (lasagna, cold sesame noodles or noodle soup, as long as there are tons of carbs, it’s tons of good). I was lucky enough to interrupt her afternoon watching the cold rain of Vancouver to talk to her about feminism, friends, and Fresh Off the Boat’s magic.
