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?

    I was a ScaryMommy groupie today. I got in the shower this morning and instructed my 8 year old to scream through the bathroom door if you came on before I got out. Thankfully you did not. :)

    You rocked the hell out of those interviews. Bravo to you for being able to handle it when Kathy Lee started getting annoyingly pushy…I thought it was hilarious.

    I wait to read your book this weekend!

    Loved you!! too bad KLG and Billy Ray kept talking over you but you rocked both segments. So glad I started following you via Classy Chaos! Keep it up and lets show the world the not so sparkly side of mommyhood and parenting.XOXO

    Frankly, pissing off Kathy Lee is on my bucket list, so congratulations. Only “down hill” because she’s an ass. You were amazing today. Rock on Jill!

    I’m sure you barely/don’t remember who I am, but I am nevertheless tickled that an online friend/idol of mine is such hot stuff. You were great — warm, human, funny. All the good stuff.

    The birth control comment was hilarious.

    You were awesome Jill. I tuned in special just to see you! Congrats on all your success. So well-deserved for such a fantastic lady! So happy for you — and I’m glad to see Jeff was there with you — I was hoping he could get in on the fun. :)
