In 2005, Helene and her brother, Gavin Macaulay, began working on their third documentary, Hauling Trash. Helene is featured in an interview about the film in MORE magazine's "Firsts at 40" piece in the December 2006 issue.
In March 2007, Rosie O'Donnell began creating video blogs for her website. She made the video blogs while getting her hair and makeup done by Helene in preparation for going on-air for the television show The View (1997). As readers began submitting questions directed towards or about Helene, she became a regular contributor to Rosie's video blog. Several weeks later, the duo was joined by Rosie's producer Janette Barber, and the trio are collectively referred to as JaHeRo.
