Hello again everyone.  I’ve been out of commission for a while.  My friends and extended family have been beyond wonderful after I lost my beloved mom on November 8, 2013. I'm lucky to have such a tremendous circle of support.   I’ll be writing about Mom and the things I’ve learned about caring for a love one through their final days.
But for now I will distract myself with my complete and  utter outrage that Cory Wade Hindorff wasn’t the winner of America’s Next Top Model Cycle 20.  I’ll be honest – I hadn’t watched ANTM since the first season.  But my summer intern Alison Isaacs went to school with Cory and did a lovely interview with him that we aired just before the season started last August as part of her Clear Channel Internship program.

Check out the interview to get some backstory about our hometown Philadelphia favorite who rose above the bullies and haters in high school to blossom and became my and millions of fans’s  very favorite ANTM model.



 And don’t forget to check to out Cory teaching me and Alison to “Smize.”
