Sami Sage’s Rise to Fame
Sami Sage started Betches Love This with her lifelong friends, Aleen Dreksler and Jordana Abraham, in 2011. They started this media enterprise while still enrolled at Cornell University.
The three roommates lived in an apartment together and used their website as an outlet to entertain themselves. Originally, the entrepreneurs invested $1,500 each into this project. Now, Betches is worth over $5,000,000.
Betches transformed from a simple WordPress blog to a media sensation. They picked up a book deal, releasing popular titles like:
- I Had A Nice Time And Other Lies
- Nice Is Just a Place in France
- When’s Happy Hour?
The initial point of betches was to take back the word. It was meant to embrace the sarcastic tone of being called one. While the three didn’t envision creating an empire, they felt empowered as things took off. Suddenly, Betches became the answer to bro culture.
In time, Betches was named a top account to follow by blockbuster brands, including:
- New York Times
- Harper’s Bazaar
- Rolling Stone
Sami Sage’s Relationships
Sorry, boys (and betches), Sami Sage is very taken. Sami Sage is married to Avi Sage. Avi has spent the last five years as an Investment Analyst and Investment Director for Old City Investment Partners.
Sami met Avi when she was invited to Shabbat at the Sage household back in 2015, courtesy of Sami’s friend, Ali Sage. Sami noticed Ali’s brother but didn’t pay much mind.
As the star recalled to the New York Times,
“Ali and I joked about how he had a crush on me, and I said he’s way too young and probably too religious for me.”
At the time, Sami had just gotten out of a relationship. Plus, her own religious practices weren’t very important to her. So, she didn’t think much of the crush, even though she thought Avi was cute.
The twosome actually bonded over their love for The Grateful Dead.
As Avi recalled,
“That’s when I realized she was different, and I kind of liked it.”
The future couple would go to see a cover band for The Grateful Dead in 2016. The date would continue with a rooftop dinner at Salvation Tacos.
Avi Sage proposed to Samantha Fishbein on March 4, 2019. This date was the anniversary of their first date. He popped the question at the Mountain Creek ski slopes in Vernon, New Jersey.
Avi Sage and Sami Sage got married on August 23, 2020, in Avi’s parent’s backyard. These nuptials were the makeup date for their April 14, 2020, wedding in Florida. The couple needed to reschedule their wedding due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
