Being In Total Control of Herself

Who we are

How Bitches Are Made is a female empowerment brand created by actor Rachel Melvin,  aimed at providing young girls and women with the tools they need to cultivate the lives they've always wanted.

Girls, women - we're always going to be called a bitch no matter what we doso we might as well use it as a term of empowerment.

Rachel Melvin


Rachel moved to Los Angeles when she was 18 to pursue a career as an actor. She got her start playing Chelsea Brady in NBC's "Days of Our Lives" in 2005 and left the show four years later, going on to star in films like "Dumb and Dumber To" opposite Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels, and in television shows like FOX's "Sleepy Hollow" and MTV's "Awkward."

How Bitches Are Made is a concept Rachel's been developing for years, having recently launched as a comedic, self help podcast in late 2019. Based on her personal journey of growing up in a big city on her own, she recounts the defining moments in her life responsible for hardening her perspective and explores why it is so hard to be a woman navigating her way in the modern world.


HBAM goes far beyond Rachel's experiences, however. From dissecting a term she deems "a bully word designed to hold women back" to exploring how the way we pee as children effects our experiences as adults, Rachel's observations on societal upbringing and the pursuit of equality in general, bring to the surface several theses you'll find as enlightening as they are entertaining. ​And, her hope? Incredibly helpful.

"My goal with How Bitches Are Made is to get women to realize the mistakes they've been making that are totally within their control, and then provide them with the tools they need to obtain the happiness they deserve."

A proud Reno native, Kevin moved to Los Angeles over sixteen years ago where he worked in casting until he eventually started his own production company.  More recently, Kevin reconnected with his roots designing and renovating homes in Joshua Tree, CA before inevitably making the move full time in late 2019. 


After special guest hosting during our Quarantine season, Kevin joins the HBAM podcast this year as an official co-host, offering fresh insights and a male perspective. A proud feminist, Kevin is thrilled to be a part of the conversation and support bitches everywhere on their journey to finding themselves and holding their own.
