Hey Leslie Brenner! Caught your wine tasting segment with the ladies of the View this morning. Looked like great fun!

    Hee-hee--I can't believe you were watching, Melanie! It actually was great fun. Boy, did they want basic basics...

      Well, I was so excited to see you on camera that I was willing to admit that I was channel-surfing day time TV! I caught Star Jones mention that they'd be doing wine tasting (but no mention of the ringleader) and decided to stick around. When they zoomed in on the front conver of your book, I got really jazzed.

      I thought you covered a lot in a short amount of time. The really amazing thing is that you got the ladies to spit on camera! It took me a few years before I could do that in public. Of course in those days a big motivation for attending wine tastings was to meet men and I needed to be the picture of femininity :-)

        Yeah, it's funny--I thought the spitting thing would be a problem, that I'd have to talk them into it, but they seemed thrilled to spit. I think they really had fun with the whole thing.
