Today Show – click it

So I ran off yesterday afternoon to NY to do a segment on the Today Show which you can check out here: http://today.msnbc.msn.com/ you may have to go under parenting to see the video but it’s kind of funny even though my hair looked like ass and my shirt made me look pregnant with octuplets. Which was perfect since I was there to discuss the Octo-moms 911 calls.

OBVIOUSLY, we will get back to more important matters once I watch Idol tonight.

I will not be dissecting the Bachelor but I will say that Jason is disgusting, I believe the whole thing was a ratings play and I’m a huge Melissa fan. She’s honestly sort of cute. And Molly is slimy.

I am very tired and truly hope I can stay awake through Idol but I will try because my readers are depending on it. Although I get the fewest comments when I talk about Idol. But I just assume everyone LOVES it. It’s called self-esteem and I’m teaching a workshop out of my garage if you’re interested.

    Gonna go check you out on the Today show…and I am with you on the Idol fication. AND, not to get you TOO excited, but see if you don’t think woozy (mild adjective) Paula is back in spades tonight….

    I DO look forward to your Idol recaps. Did you see that Melissa (from The Bachelor) has resurfaced on Dancing with the Stars?

    Okay, can I just say my favorite line in that whole clip was, “I’m not the poster child for mental stability, and I have the xanax in my purse to prove it!”

    So, you know how there is this “tag” going around that says show me whats in your purse?

    How hilarious would it be to have a tag asking, “Show me what you keep your xanax in, in your purse.”


    You looked awesome, loved it!

    Are you going to be on that Digital Moms segment? Cause you would be a breath of fresh air. The first one made me want to stab the internet.

    Is Natalie as gorgeous in real life as she is on the show? In my Lifetime movie, I SO want her to play me (even if shes not an actress)!

    So, I’m wondering…is your tongue still bleeding (from biting it so hard)? You showed excellent restraint…which is good?

    I definitely agreed with you more than the host and the other woman there. You did great and you looked amazing! Pregnant with octuplets my ass.

    So I’m traveling for work, and I come out of the bathroom in my hotel room, and all of a sudden, I overhear Natalie Morales say something about Chardonnay and Sippy Cups.

    I run into the bedroom (we’ll leave out the part where my flabby body hit me in the face with a boob for moving too quickly) and wouldn’t you know it, there you were on the TV, and here I was, not wearing anything. Awkward!

    I thought you were awesome! My favorite line? “I worry she’ll call 911 next time she loses a sandwich.”

    Why don’t they ever call ME to talk about Octomom 911 calls?

    Oh, right.

    Hey there – I’m going to agree with one of the posters up top – the best line was definitely “I’m not the poster child for sanity…” I would have said that about myself but said “I have the Zoloft in my purse to prove it.” Rock on! You looked great, sounded great. 🙂

    You looked great!! Great appearance!

    Natalie Morales is so beautiful she’d make the rest of us mere mortals feel like octo-hags, but you are to hard on yourself. You looked great and made some excellent points. I was holding my breath waiting for you to drop the f-bomb on them, or tell them that G-tubes make you want to kill yourself….real reason for panic, huh?

    You did great on the segment but I could tell you had to hold back so much. I would have liked it better if that other mom had not been on there. You could have carried the segment much better that way.

    You were great–I actually like the hair.

    btw, I worked for Romi’s husband for 3 years at Warner Bros. She was always really cool.

    “…call 911 for a sandwich.”

    Which is supposed to sound ridiculous.

    But then there was the woman who called 911 over McNuggets…and you have to wonder: maybe OctoMom WILL call 911 over a sandwich.

    I don’t think having Xanax makes you unstable. Maybe I’m projecting because I keep it in my purse as well….

    Dude. I’m seriously waiting for Idol recaps.

    And wait, I can call 911 for a sandwich? MY WORLD HAS EXPANDED.

    I actually thought the other mom made great sense. I especially liked her personal comments about her pregnancies and “hormonal reactions.”

  20. It's me said,

    i agree i’d have liked to have seen you get to really let it rip without the other more “normal” voice of reason author there. you got to be hilarious, but with a cap on it. i’ve done a couple of tiny tv segments and I know you really only get a coupla seconds, but damn girl were you so quick witted and super shiny smart ass in those coupla seconds you got!

  21. LuLu and Moxley's Mom said,

    Did anyone else get the sense the other mom had actually called 911 a few times herself? Something tells me the two of you didn’t grab cocktails together after the segment wrapped. You looked great! I sort of want to call 911 and report a sandwich missing after this segment, just to see what would happen.

    You were fabulous on Today!

    Girl, you looked HAWT! I loved the sandwich comment too. 😉

    Just watched the Today clip. While the other mom on with you was nice and all, why didn’t they let you speak more? YOU were hilarious- esp re the “911 call for a missing sandwich”!

    BTW- I like your hair and that coral color looks great on you!

    You did great! And I was with you, Nadya was a bit excessive with her fervor. There will be crises in life, and a parent must handle them with a little more self-control. But then again, evidently self-control is not exactly Nadya’s strong point.

    Ah, I want to write something witty but all I got is you were fantastic. Loved it.

    I think the other two were way over the top in defending octomom. Where is sympathy going to get her or the children when octomom goes psycho and does something to harm one of the kids, (mentally, physically, or otherwise)

    Stephanie, I think that people will look back to the interview and say, this is the only woman who knew what she was talking about.
