It wasn’t exactly a stretch for Kaley Cuoco to create a pet care brand.
Her company, Yes, Norman Productions, was already named after her beloved rescue dog, a pit bull mix who died in January 2021 at the age of 14. “We call it your heart dog, right? Yeah, Norman changed my life,” Cuoco, 37, tells PEOPLE. “This dog was just my heart for years and years and years. He’d been through divorce with me, changes in my career. I mean, the amount of times I would cry with this dog. He just saved my life.”
Inspired by his unconditional love, Cuoco is now launching her pet care brand, Oh, Norman!, featuring eco-friendly, durable, and safe pet products. The initial launch includes liquid supplements, dog bowls, dog placemats, and matching human and dog sweatshirts.
“Listen, I am simply a dog/pet lover. I was excited to come out with products that were obviously cute, that were affordable, but also eco-friendly, healthy, good for the dogs, good for the owner, easy to clean, easy, easy, easy,” she explains. “I have many dogs coming in and out of my house, so things need to be easy. They need to be able to fall and not break. I need to be able to wash stuff. So it was clean, organic, fantastic, eco-friendly products and I’m very proud of that.”
At home with her boyfriend, actor Tom Pelphrey, and their 6-month-old daughter Matilda, Cuoco has a menagerie of four rescue dogs: Ruby, Opal, King, and Blue. Exposing the pack of pups to Matilda was an immediate priority for the couple.
“Oh my God, she got thrown to the wolves literally,” Cuoco says, laughing. “After she was born, I’m like, ‘If this child doesn’t like dogs, I might have to send her back. There’s no choice. This is your life. This is it.’ They have jumped on her. They have crawled across her. We have let them lick her, kiss her. Our pediatrician was like, ‘It’s okay.’ So they love her so much.”
The actress also felt it was necessary to test all of Oh, Norman!’s products on her own animals before the launch. “Yes, Calm the F down came from one of my dogs who is just so anxiety-ridden in the car,” she says. “I rarely put her in the car anymore because she hates it, but when I have to take her to the vet or whatever, I would constantly be like, ‘Oh my God, calm the f–k down.’ And we were naming the products, and I’m like, ‘Guys, we have to name this for what it is.’ It’s so good. I’ve noticed a difference. It completely takes the edge off.”
Most importantly, Cuoco wanted to make sure a portion of the company’s profits would go to animal rescue organizations. “That is the best part about this. I was thinking, ‘What’s going to set you apart? Why would someone buy my product over someone else’s?’ To me, if you know a portion of this is actually going to animal rescue, you’re going for that one.”
The new venture is also a way of keeping memories of Norman vivid in her mind. After his death, “I was like, ‘Oh my God, I have to have this dog remembered for the rest of our lives,'” Cuoco adds. “He’s so special to me, and he’s so alive to me. I still talk about him all the time.”
The actress and Pelphrey will next be joining others to raise money for IATSE Members with Love Kills, a night of one-act plays by Don Nigro. The event will run Nov. 15-18 at the Colony Theater in Burbank.
Actress and animal advocate Kaley Cuoco recently announced the launch of Oh Norman!, her new pet care brand committed to creating eco friendly, durable and safe products. Inspired by Cuoco’s love for her late dog Norman, the brand will redefine the pet care industry through curated collections of sustainably-minded, high-quality products developed to tackle the everyday challenges faced by owners.
Available now, Oh Norman! is launching its first limited-edition capsule collection of ethically sourced, clean products that include two liquid supplements, “Oh Norman! Stop Effing Itching!” and “Calm the Eff Down!,” as well as dog bowls, dog placemats and matching human and dog sweatshirts. Future collections will begin rolling out later this year, with products supporting pets and their owners through the development of trustworthy and environmentally conscious products. Driven by Cuoco’s own love for animals and experience as a dog mom to five rescues, Oh Norman! will donate a portion of its sales to rescue organizations on the frontline that are making a difference in the lives of animals.
“My beloved, hilarious dog Norman’s unconditional love inspired me to create this company” said Cuoco, the popular actress, animal advocate and co-founder of Oh Norman!. “As a pet parent, I wanted our products to be safe, sustainably-made, and beautifully designed to support and celebrate our best friends and the joy they bring us. By creating products with them and the planet in mind, I know we can give them the best, because they deserve the best.”
Oh Norman!’s initial collection brings four clever and playful categories to the market, including:
DOG AND HUMAN SWEATSHIRTS: These high-quality, organic cotton sweatshirts come in two fun matching designs for both owner and dog to enjoy. Sourced from a family-owned farm in Peru, these sweatshirts are ethically and sustainably made.
LIQUID SUPPLEMENTS: These two new supplements support dogs’ overall well-being with high-quality, effective and natural ingredients. Both supplements are manufactured in the U.S.A. and reviewed by board certified veterinary specialists.
DOG PLACEMATS: These thoughtfully designed and eco-friendly placemats are made with organic cotton and a recycled rubber bottom to ensure they stay in place. They are both stain and water resistant.
DOG BOWLS: These dishwasher safe, eco-friendly bowls are made from 39 percent wood, making them more sustainable than plastic yet just as durable. Each bowl features a rubber bottom to prevent slipping.
“Based on a True Story” has been renewed for Season 2 at Peacock.
The eight-episode first season of the dark comedy debuted on the streaming service in June. It starred Kaley Cuoco, Chris Messina, Tom Bateman, Priscilla Quintana, Liana Liberato, Natalia Dyer, and more.
The show is a satire of the true crime genre with elements loosely inspired by real events. The official description of Season 1 states that it is about “Ava (Cuoco) and her husband Nathan (Messina), a down-on-their-luck couple, whose lives collide with an infamous serial killer terrorizing Los Angeles and seize a unique opportunity to capitalize on America’s obsession with true crime by making a podcast with the killer.”
Craig Rosenberg created the series and serves as showrunner and executive producer. Cuoco executive produces in addition to starring. Jason Bateman and Michael Costigan also executive produce via Aggregate Films, with Roxie Rodriguez of Aggregate and Melissa Blake co-executive producing. Alex Buono directed the first and last episodes of Season 1 and served as an executive producer on the season. UCP is the studio.
Kaley Cuoco, Tom Pelphrey, Briana Cuoco, Midori Francis, Rebecca Mozo and Justin Chatwin are set to star in the play Love Kills, a special event that will see all proceeds going towards IATSE members who have been impacted by the strikes.
Based on the one-act plays by Don Nigro, the event will run November 15-18 at the Colony Theater in Burbank.
Kevin Kittle is directing with Cara Christian producing. Justin Huen will be the technical director, with Dana Schwartz serving as stage manager.
The plays explore all the ways that “love can be deadly,” and they are shared like campfire ghost stories; full of suspense and atmosphere, infused with humor and a few winks at the audience. As with most of Nigro’s plays, they are a celebration of storytelling, and hopefully a reminder of the simple magic that can be created with a writer, a couple actors, a few stools, and a talented crew.
Performing Binorrie will be Francis and Rebecca Mozo; performing Lurker will be Chatwin and Briana Cuoco; and performing Fair Rosamund and her Murderer will be Kaley Cuoco and Pelphrey.
Kaley Cuoco and celeb makeup artist Jamie Greenberg have one of those relationships that’s right up there with peanut butter and jelly, Batman and Robin, salt and pepper. Whether it’s prepping for a photo shoot or getting ready for the red carpet, the dynamic duo does it right—and has a lot of fun in the process. (Luckily for us, they also do a very good job documenting it on social media.) Tomorrow, Greenberg launches the much-anticipated B.F.M.R Mist AKA Best F*cking Makeup Remover Mist ($39), a refillable, spray-on vegan makeup remover that is already getting rave reviews—including some very stellar feedback from Cuoco herself.
How long have you been working together and when did you first meet?
I gauge my time with Jamie based on how old her eldest kid is! I met Jamie at Comic Con when she was pregnant; I remember she had to fill in for someone that was supposed to come work with me. She came to my hotel room, and I remember thinking, “How is this very pregnant lady going to make her way around Comic Con with me?”
What is one of your favorite looks you’ve done together?
Honestly, we always outdo ourselves! Every look is my favorite. During the last Golden Globes, I was pregnant and it was one of my favorite looks from head to toe. I felt like a pregnant princess.
Which was the most difficult?
I can truly say I don’t think anything has ever been difficult with us. We never have a plan going in—we decide in the moment. We love to try things and play with makeup, because why not?”
What makes her latest product launch different?
This is the best makeup remover ever. It’s clean and easy on my eyes since I’m super sensitive. It’s my new favorite product no doubt. I love that it’s unscented and obviously love that it’s completely vegan.
Did you switch up what you were using during pregnancy and, likewise, now that you have a baby, have you simplified it?
Nope! Nothing has really changed. I’m the same girl who still loves the same products, loves makeup, loves her team, but now there’s a mini me hanging around!

Kaley Cuoco Web supports the SAG-AFTRA strike.
The nearly 160,000 members of SAG-AFTRA, the union that represents all performers on film and television, are going on strike.
On Thursday, the Screen Actors Guild – American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA) announced its national board voted unanimously to launch the guild’s first strike. The news was unveiled by SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher and National Executive Director & Chief Negotiator Duncan Crabtree-Ireland during a press conference, following the expiration of the union’s current contract and a 12-day extension of contract negotiations with the Alliance of Motion Pictures and Television Producers (AMPTP).
Why are the actors going on strike?
The short answer is because the SAG-AFTRA bargaining committee and AMPTP could not reach an agreement to form a new contract after their previous one expired on June 30.
But the reasons for a strike are many. SAG-AFTRA has faced a host of radical changes as the industry has pivoted away from more traditional models of theatrical distribution and network and cable television in favor of streaming. The issues at hand include the use of AI in generating and perpetuating actors’ likenesses, as well as residuals and data transparency for streaming projects. Other points of conflict are also salaries, particularly for guest stars, costars, and background actors, as rising inflation and the cost of living increasingly prevent many working actors from earning a living wage.
Drescher summed up the reasons for a strike in a press conference speech. “We are being victimized by a very greedy entity. I am shocked by the way the people that we have been in business with are treating us,” she said. “I cannot believe it, quite frankly. How far apart we are on so many things. How they plead poverty, that they’re losing money left and right while giving hundreds and millions of dollars to their CEOS. It is disgusting. Shame on them. They stand on the wrong side of history at this very moment.”
She continued: “The entire business model has been changed by streaming, digital, AI. This is a moment of history that is a moment of truth. If we don’t stand tall right now, we are going to be in trouble. We are all going to be in jeopardy of being replaced by machines and big business, who cares more about wall street than you and your family.”
We sit down with Kaley Cuoco (Ava Bartlett), Chris Messina (Nathan Bartlett), Tom Bateman (Matt Pierce), Priscilla Quintana (Ruby Gale), and Liana Liberato (Tory Thompson) to get an inside look at some of their favorite scenes and moments from the show, as well as their experiences working with this killer cast.
Kaley Cuoco is opening up about the “badass” scars she has after nearly losing her leg in an equestrian accident more than 10 years ago.
The Big Bang Theory alum, 37, appeared on Monday’s episode of Apple’s SmartLess podcast where she discussed severely breaking her leg after falling off her horse and how her injuries almost required doctors to amputate.
“It was a bad accident, it was a very bad accident,” she told co-hosts Jason Bateman, Will Arnett and Sean Hayes.
In September 2010, Cuoco — who’s an avid horse jumper and competitor — was riding at a Los Angeles ranch when her horse got spooked and she fell off. Seconds later, the horse attempted to jump over her but landed on her left leg. Cuoco was rushed to the hospital with severe injuries.
“I remember clear as day, because it takes a second when something is that bad,” she recalled. “I was like, ‘Did I just fall on a whole thing of leaves?’ Because I heard all the cracking. … It took me like five or 10 seconds to actually realize it wasn’t just 400 leaves, it was my bones.”
The Flight Attendant star suffered a compound fracture of her tibia and fibula, causing the bones to pierce through the skin of her lower leg.
“It just was a horrible, horrible, horrible break,” she said, noting that she underwent surgery and, before going under anesthesia, had to sign a release allowing doctors to amputate her leg if needed.
Cuoco’s leg was fortunately saved during surgery. Doctors originally believed she wouldn’t be able to walk for months. However, after a two-week stay in the hospital, she was fitted for a walking boot and back on her feet. The accident resulted in the actress being written out of two episodes of the Big Bang.
“It was miraculous,” she said of her surgery and recovery. “I’ve got some good scars. It makes you feel like a badass.”
Cuoco has maintained her love for horse riding despite the brutal accident, even sharing that love with her daughter. In April, Cuoco shared photos on Instagram while introducing her 2-month-old daughter Matilda to one of the several horses she owns.
