About Lynette Carolla, Jay Miller, and Carolla Drinks

Lynette Carolla grew up in Souther California with her Italian parents and brothers. At age 7, Lynette’s parents enrolled her in SAG/AFTRA and got her an agent. During her youth she’s booked several acting jobs including a commercial for Cadillac, an ABC TV movie of the week, and a Mighty Carson Art Player on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Growing up in the industry, her father Richard was an advertising director at a local television station, Lynette knew she didn’t want to be an actress. She was interested in the business side of television. Starting her career working in syndication sales for companies for the big four networks, she quickly learned the process of developing, producing and syndicating for TV with many shows such as Roseanne, Third Rock From The Sun, and That 70’s Show.

At the age of 25, Lynette was working for Brandon Tartikoff’s New World Entertainment when she met a young, struggling comedian at the beginning of his career, Adam Carolla. Adam had just finished shooting a pilot for FOX affiliates called Loveline based on his radio show with Dr. Drew. In 1997, Lynette moved over to ABC Television as manager of Programming and Scheduling for Primetime. In 2002, Adam and Lynette were married, and in ’06 their twins Santino and Natalia were born.

In 2009, Adam started his own podcasting network and Lynette started a podcast which she still hosts twice a week titled For Crying Out Loud with her co-host and bestselling author/comedian, Stefanie Wilder-Taylor, where they discuss everything from raising twins to relationship woes of being in a longterm marriages, to Netflix series and books they’re obsessed with. Nothing is off limits, which unfortunately leads to uncomfortable situations such as Parent Nights at the kids schools.

***

When Lynette was 4 months pregnant, Adam’s pal Jimmy Kimmel saw Lynette struggling with groceries up the stairs. He suggested they hire a friend of his family who was moving out from Chicago, Jay Miller. He started as Lynette’s assistant, carrying groceries, housework and buying baby formula. After the twins were born in 2006 Jay went on to be Adam’s personal assistant working out of their home in Hollywood, CA. Jay did everything from coordinating travel, setting meetings to ordering car parts, organizing Adam’s home garage and refurbishing Adam’s growing car collection. Because of Adam’s busy schedule Jay was often left in charge of major projects involving construction at Adam’s home. Jay oversaw the demolishment to the building of Adam’s super garage which was featured on the cover of Fast Company magazine in 2009.

***

Adam often talked about making himself a high octane, wine cocktail at home called Mangria on his popular podcast, The Adam Carolla Show, which resulted in calls from Napa. The winery asked if he was interested in actually bottling the cocktail, they would be happy to send over a few samples to try and narrow down the perfect formula. Once the signature Red Mangria gained popularity, they developed a new white flavor, followed by the Brose.

Adam being as busy as Adam always is, he handed the alcohol brand over to Lynette to run as she was adiment that females would love the product as well — even though ‘Man’ was in the title. Having no experience in the alcohol industry, no seed money other than what was being provided by the Carollas, Lynette recruited their adoptive son, Jay Miller. It made perfect sense to have Jay partner up with Lynette to launch Mangria and take it to the next level. With Jay’s law degree, his connections and knowledge of the alcohol industry, plus being a member of the Carolla family, Jay decided to go full time building the Carolla Drinks brand.

In Jan of 2016, a brewery out of Redondo Beach showed up at one of Adam’s live shows and offered him a few samples to take home of their IPA beer. Jay knew the guys from King Harbor and helped them facilitate a deal with Carolla Drinks. Within 4 months the launch of King Harbor’s Adam Carolla’s Endless Rant IPA was born and launched at Adam’s Toyota Grand Prix race last year.

Carolla Drinks is powered by Lynette Carolla as CEO and Brand Ambassador, with Jay Miller who is the COO, CTO as well as head of Marketing and Distribution. Carolla Drinks is unique, and unlike the majority of celebrity endorsed alcohol beverage companies on the market, as it is solely funded and ran by the Carolla’s personally. Carolla Drinks is a grassroots, boots on the ground, family owned and operated company. Relying on the loyal Adam Carolla fanbase to spread the word and having a solid, good tasting product that puts the brand above all others. The Carolla Digital employees who work for Adam at the podcast studio daily, have been embraced by his audience and have grown to be known as The Lackeys. Today The Lackeys travel with Lynette and Jay around the country nationally hosting their infamous Carolla Drinks Bar Crawls.

“As a nightly consumer of red wine, I was shocked one evening to find I had just half a glass left in the bottle. So I did what any decent alcoholic, ex-con, American would do… I went to the fridge and the liquor cabinet, then poured, mixed and measured. Thus Mangria was born.” — Adam Carolla

“I like to make a statement… and then another, and another, and another… And I don’t settle when it comes to cars, politics, music… Or BEER. So I set out to create a great brew to fuel barstool arguments and tailgate pontification. While still embracing the classic citrus notes of a West Coast IPA. A beer that makes a statement. Thus, Endless Rant IPA was born.” – Adam Carolla.

With a new year, comes a new chance to build a life with your sobriety as the cornerstone. The holidays – and the challenges they brought – are behind you, and this month of January is the perfect time to think about all that you are grateful for, and all that you hope to achieve in 2014. Is it attending more meetings? Getting a sponsor? A sponsee? Do you hope to travel or reconnect with old friends, but fear that the change might be a trigger to use? I reached out to DeAnna Jordan, the clinical director at New Method Wellness (http://www.newmethodwellness.com) rehabilitation center for expert advice. Whatever you choose to do to walk your walk and stay strong, here are some tips to help you along your path. Be well!

Do not give into peer pressure
Your sobriety comes first. If there are functions that make you uncomfortable, say no. Don’t put yourself in harm’s way just to put others at ease.

Surround yourself with positive influences
If you surround yourself with heavy drinkers and users, then your hopes of remaining sober are in serious jeopardy. Surround yourself around people that are responsible and supportive of your sobriety decision.

Do not put yourself near known triggers
If you know the tangible triggers that make you want to use drugs or alcohol, then steer clear of them and place yourself in situations that put you at ease and make you secure and comfortable.

Be social – but be careful
Keeping track of how long you have been at a party can sometimes be key. Staying too long can likely expose an individual to triggers as the party progresses later into the night. Two hours is usually a good maximum to have in mind.

Do practice self-care
Go to meetings, make calls, take time out for yourself, eat well, and sleep well. Take everything a day at a time and make sure that you are keeping track of your needs.

DeAnna Jordan is New Method Wellness’s Clinical Director. She has worked in recovery services for over 20 years, specializing in the maintenance of healthy relationships.

I’ve always been a hopeless romantic. As tough as I make myself out to be, when it comes down to it, I have always believed in the concept of love really being all you need in life. I have never been able to understand women who married for money or notoriety; how can you look yourself in the mirror every day? Growing up I loved fairy tales; I always listened, unable to sleep until happily ever after. I suppose I still believe that’s a thing, happily ever after. Or is it?

As my 31st birthday approaches I am acutely aware that I am not where I thought I would be by this age. I am not married, I don’t own a house, I don’t have kids, I don’t have money saved – hell, I don’t even have a boyfriend. Am I broken? Has believing in something perfect turned me off to something realistic?

As the minutes tick by and turn to hours that turn to weeks that turn to years, I’m wondering, does that fairy tale still exist? Is love all you really need, or is stability something that I should be looking for as well? I have always found comfort in looking back on my dating history. I have loved so many types of people: tall, short, fat, hairy, bald, muscular… Some have been drop dead gorgeous, other have left my friends wondering if I had gone temporarily blind. Either way, I have always loved every single one of those men. I don’t care one way or another what they looked like or what they had to offer besides their love – and I have never, ever been sorry.

Are things different now? Should I be worried if someone I care for isn’t perfect on paper? Is love really just… enough? My favorite love story of all time is Charles Dickens’ Great Expectations. For those who haven’t read it, it’s about a boy who falls in love with a girl at a young age. She is everything to him, and she eventually breaks his heart, and he is ruined. The story takes you through his whole life with her, without her, his life thinking of her, getting over her, running into her years later (just like we all run into ex’s), and in the end, they somehow wind up together. Years pass, lives change, marriages happen and decay, children, jobs, family… Life happens. And in the end, they just knew it was love the whole time. It’s perfect. Is that the way it could all be? Or is it just that, a tale woven by an author in the 1860s?

It doesn’t matter either way. I find that no matter what I tell myself, no matter what I feel like I should do, my heart is always going to lead the way. I don’t care if you don’t have any money, I don’t care if you don’t have the perfect job. I don’t care if you’re a 30-year-old bartender, a broke ass writer, or a fancy pants pro-wrestler on TV. When it comes to matters of the heart, I will always be that hopeless romantic.

As black hearted as I feel sometimes there is always that hope, that faith that love is simply enough. I am lucky to have loved deeply in my life, and I know what it is, and what it’s capable of. As 31 approaches, I don’t feel lost in love at all. I feel in control, like I won’t settle for anything but head over heels, totally blind, never ever looking back love. And that is anything but hopeless.
