Today… on Today


What a day!!! I’m writing this from the hotel where I have exactly one hour of downtime, but wanted to share some pictures and videos from Today…

First up, the clip from my interview with Ann Curry and Huffington Post’s Lisa Belkin.

Next up, my interview with Kathie Lee Gifford and Billy Ray Cyrus, who thinks that my name is cool. In return, I kind of called his daughter a slut. And then I pissed off Kathie Lee. Double whoops!

But, he did take a book home with him to share with his kids. My job is done.

And, no, my hair doesn’t always look like this. The folks at Ouidad not only threw me an amazing launch party, but they also did my hair. And have secured a place in my heart forever.

Just a day in the life of a mother of three, huh?

    You did great!! I just finished catching up to your blog yesterday. It took me a week to read all of your posts…I really enjoyed it. I feel the same way. I grew up towards your neck of the woods. I am also a North Shore Girl…Congratulations on the book! I can’t wait to read it.

    Omg..Kathie Lee can suck it. “Parenting is such a joy” or what ever the hell she said. Puh-leez I’m sure she a billion nannies.

    Congratulations!! I love what you’ve done. You are 100% right in that we moms of today just sort of wing it a lot of the time and hope for the best.

    Now, I am not a “mean girl” and I think chicks should basically stand up for one another, but KLG is so out of touch and a close minded biatch! Poop to her! At least BRC has a sense of humor and was really trying to be supportive of you!! *deep breath, reel it in*

    Again, congrats on your success and keep up the great work, we need you!! :)
