Lauren Graham is thrilled the Washington Post didn’t spoil her dad’s birthday party

Actress and author Lauren Graham recently appeared on “The Late, Late Show with Craig Ferguson”lauren2 to plug her new book, “Someday, Someday, Maybe.” She told Ferguson:

And so that was really great.

“I hadn’t seen that,” says Jen Chaney, who wrote the review. “I know that [actress] Busy Philipps tweeted the review, but I have not heard from Ms. Graham. That’s a nice coincidence.”
