For Wendie Malick, size matters. “I need a purse large enough to carry scripts, a book and a journal,” the Buffalo, New York, native tells Us Weekly of her Save My Bag tote. “I always admire people who have tiny bags.” The star of CBS’s Rush Hour, which airs on Thursdays at 10 p.m., opens up her satchel.

Shady Business

“I always have my fabulous Miu Miu sunglasses, which I got from the set of Just Shoot Me! ages ago. I can’t leave home without them!”

For Better Or Worse

“I have a Universal Life Church credential because I’m now a certified minister and I can perform weddings. You get this really cool card to carry. I only do it for people I know and love.”

Making a Mark

“I use Stila eyeliner. I do a smooth line that goes a little bit out at the end. That’s the Egyptian in me: a teeny bit Cleopatra — not too much, but a subtle touch.”

Give Her Credit

“In my twenties in New York, I was a struggling, starving actress. When I got my first American Express card, I felt like I had arrived.”

Brain Boost

“I always carry a little baggie of raw almonds. They get me through if I’m having a thinking spell.”
