    Daisy Fuentes.

    Daisy Fuentes.

    This is a Really Famous classic. I'm re-sharing it because it's the kind of talk a lot of us need right now.
    Daisy Fuentes inspires me – and I think will inspire you. I love her perspective, approach to life, insight and authenticity.
    Daisy is the host of a new TV show on NBC called A New Leaf, sponsored by Ancestry.com with executive producer Robin Samuels.
    Back in the day, Daisy was a hugely popular MTV VJ. Ever since, she's been all over television. She was the host of House of Style, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, her own CNBC talk show called Daisy ... I can go on and on.
    Daisy has had an extraordinary life trajectory. She started as a model, accidentally scored a last-minute gig presenting the weather on Telemundo, and pretty much everything blew up from there. We talk about all that, and more.
    Like:
    ancestry and DNA testing (hers, mine + other people's) how she learned to take advantage of opportunties becoming a successful entrepreneur making her parents proud fame social media (really nice fan interactions vs. trolls) how Martha Quinn set her up with Richard Marx her dating + marriage story with husband Richard Marx the universe's little messages the law of attraction how she envisioned her life, and what actually happened fear love family New Jersey Check your local listings for A New Leaf.
    SWEET TREAT!

    Louie Anderson

    Louie Anderson

    Louie Anderson moves me. When I watch him play Christine Baskets on the FX series Baskets, I literally put my hand to my heart. The humanity he conveys is almost too much. It's beautiful.
    And he moves me to tears -- of joy and laughter! He's so funny and it shows as we get to know each other for the first time.
    There's a little backstory here:
    Last summer I shared a video clip on Instagram of my "Dream Guests." Louie, of course, was on my list. Louie saw it and said, "I'd love to be on your show!"
    Long story short: It took a full year. But finally! He's on the show.
    And all I can tell you is this: I KNEW IT. I KNEW he'd be a dream guest.
    Join us as we genuinely talk and laugh and get into things like:
    teasing friendship family joy Baskets Christine Baskets Chip Baskets Dale Baskets Zach Galifinakis FX the book Breathe collecting coffee mugs Minnesota New Jersey why he moved to Las Vegas comedians like Joan Rivers and Rodney Dangerfield Marc Maron podcasts Italian tile and ooooh, so much more SWEET!

    Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos, Goodfellas, Summer of Sam) and I do an impromptu podcast - and it's so relaxed that you'll have a 100% different experience than when you listened to his original episode of Really Famous.
    You'll hear:
    Who he based Christopher Moltisanti on (a real-life person! who has no idea!) Why he said "F that" about David Chase Why he knew James Gandolfini really well, but Edie Falco didn't Who he stays in touch with from The Sopranos Who he hangs out with What he does when he's bored What his kids think of him in The Sopranos and Goodfellas Why he moved to Santa Barbara Why he recently moved back to New York and is now bicoastal We also:
    Are so relaxed that it's actually quite amusing Bond over childhood TV and our favorite shows now Analyze Spike Lee Laugh at each other Overanalyze this conversation ... and then don't

Bunco Bea ,

You had me at Louie Anderson 😊

Nice flow to your podcast interviews. Easy going and comfortable. Good job!

Patti R. ,

Jason Ritter

I think the shopkeeper was a fan of John Ritter and that one encounter made him think Jason wasn’t as nice a person. I don’t think it was that odd a thing to say.
