    VALERIE BERTINELLI

    VALERIE BERTINELLI

    The last time I talked with Valerie Bertinelli was 2 years ago, which was a pretty dark time in both of our lives. I can't tell you how JOYOUS it was to reunite in person and see just how much we both have been able to heal since then (after putting in lots of hard work, of course). We had such a meaningful and fun conversation about her new cookbook Indulge, how she deals with grief, and how Valerie got to a place where she truly loves herself. I can’t tell you how much I loved this episode and I know you will too. Oh and I promise you that after this interview, you’ll want to order her fantastic cookbook Indulge. I can’t stop making recipes from it and, let me tell you, her dishes are easy & delicious! 😋🥄❤️

    GAYLE KING

    GAYLE KING

    Here it is, folks - our 200th episode of A Spoonful Of Paolo with the one and only Gayle King! I met Gayle for the first time 20 years ago when Oprah made my wildest dream come true. It was an honor and privilege to interview Gayle decades later at the CBS Mornings studio in Times Square - a true full circle moment. Gayle showed up to play and this special episode is filled with lots of fun, heartfelt and surprising moments. Patrick and I thank you for being a part of this amazing Spoonful journey and I hope my interview with Gayle inspires you to always dream BIG! 🥄🥄🥄

    OPRAH WINFREY & THE COLOR PURPLE CAST

    I'm so proud to share with you my full interviews from the purple carpet with Oprah Winfrey and the cast of #TheColorPurple! I still can’t believe this happened one week ago today. It was a dream come true to talk with this phenomenal cast about a story that has transcended generations. I watched “The Color Purple” twice last week and I can’t overstate how powerful, magical and profoundly beautiful this film is. I want to give a special thank you to everyone at Oprah Daily for believing in me and trusting me to represent you on the purple carpet! My husband and I were so grateful for this amazing opportunity. I hope you all enjoy my interviews and don’t forget “The Color Purple” comes out on Christmas Day! 💜💜💜

    It's Spoonful time! Here's my brand new interview with 3x Emmy-winning co-host of ABC’s The View & 2x NYT best-selling author Sunny Hostin! I have been a huge fan of The View since the show was launched back in 1997, so to be able to sit down with Sunny Hostin was a huge honor for me. I am so inspired by Sunny’s journey to her dreams and her perseverance in life, and I know you will be too. ALSO, since tomorrow is Sunny’s birthday, you know we had to surprise her with a special gift at the end. I will cherish this interview forever and I am so excited to share it with you! 🥄🥄🥄

Fun + Meaningful Podcast

I’ve been listening to this podcast since the beginning and each episode is even more energetic and memorable than the last. Paolo asks the most thoughtful questions and I love that the executive producer and Paolo’s husband Patrick is also part of the podcast. He brings insights from behind the scenes from the episode which brings another level of depth to how it became to be. Highly recommended!

PP and PT fan for life ,

Want something to listen to that will make you smile?

People I’m not even joking. If you’re in a bad mood this will turn your frown upside down! Each interview gets better and better. Paolo is genuine, down to earth and hilariously funny!!! Highly recommended.
