2 Hopeful Spinsters is the brainchild of Heather Olt and Dellany Peace. Being single women in their 30’s, they are quite aware that they are beyond the average marrying age, which currently stands at 27 in the U.S. Between the 2 of them, they’ve been in 13 weddings. They get it. However, they would NEVER have called themselves spinsters. Spinsters are 150, have 9,000 cats, wear the same muumuu every day, watch soaps non-stop, and have resigned themselves to the fact that they will always be single. “We are NOT spinsters. We are simply 2 confident women that have not yet decided when or if we want to settle down to marry and procreate.” Or so they thought...until the day Heather was cast as a “hopeful spinster” on the comedy Up All Night. Later that day, Heather & Dellany met for coffee, where Heather exclaimed, "am I REALLY a Spinster?" Dellany replied, "I dunno. Let's look it up.” She quickly Googled it and happily said, "I'm a spinster TOO!" They looked at each other and... EUREKA! They realized that...even though they ARE spinsters...at least they can be hopeful! Thus, 2 Hopeful Spinsters was born.
