SMW’s Celebrity Scene: Hot Haute Holiday Pitchfest…

Kathie Lee Gifford and Matt LauerThe night before my big Today Show appearance (co-hosted by my friend the wonderful Kathie Lee Gifford) on uterine fibroids, I met with another mother and career woman who had suffered from the same severe symptoms I did for very many years. I want to thank Paula Grant for speaking out about her uterine fibroids and treatment options. Women don’t have to suffer from uterine fibroids in silence! Paula and I also told our stories to Today Show co-host Hoda Kotb for her online show on called Today’s Your Healthy Family.

Jacqueline BissetWe had the great fortune of sharing a green room with the beautiful Jacqueline Bisset who was promoting her new TV movie “An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving” that airs on the Hallmark Channel this Saturday.

The funny thing about meeting Paula for the Today Show segment is that she also tried out for the first season of “She’s Got the Look,” but showed up too late. Bummer. She’s a hot mama!

Right now, we’re in Miami where the weather is oh so glorious shooting the season finale of “She’s Got the Look.” It’s been an amazing experience shooting the series the last two months. The women are just stunningly beautiful with rich life experiences. Though the show won’t be out for a few more months, soon enough one lucky winner will receive a lucrative contract with Wilhelmina Models, Inc., a check for $100,000 and a photo spread in SELF magazine.

After the finale, I’ll join the Johnson family for a lovely Thanksgiving holiday and then it’s back to Los Angeles for some golf.

Before I go, here’s the skinny on my last few days in the Big Apple.

•    Dinner at Da Silvano with Robert Verdi and Sean Patterson.

•    Meeting Cedric the Entertainer in my hotel before his “American Buffalo” premiere with John Leguizamo and Haley Joel Osment.

•    Finalizing the Jet Magazine story on uterine fibroids for December

•    Hitting Saks for Chanel’s nail polish in Vamp

•    Dining at Esca, where the sorbet is magnifico!

Happy Thanksgiving!
