Daisy Fuentes
I’m kicking off 2020 with a guest who 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.   GET IN TOUCH: Insider news - ReallyFamousPodcast.com/contact Instagram - @karamayerrobinson Facebook - @karamayerrobinson Twitter - @kara1to1 Email - reallyfamouspodcast@gmail.com   EXTRA TREATS: Daisy's bonus video Q&A - YouTube.com/reallyfamous Behind-the-scenes photos - ReallyFamousPodcast.com Donate $1 or $3 or $10 to Really Famous and get a shout-out from me on the show - ReallyFamousPodcast.com/donate # Celebrity interview by Kara Mayer Robinson.

Marilu Henner
Marilu Henner (Taxi, Evening Shade, Grease, Chicago) and I talk a mile a minute about EVERYTHING, from her incredible memory (it's called HSAM, or highly superior autobiographical memory) to party games to family to dating John Travolta and a few Taxi co-stars. Such fun! We crossed paths in New York City for just a few hours, so we went for it! On a recent Saturday night, we got together and knew our willingness (on both sides) to do this on the fly, between flights to and from Los Angeles, was a sign we'd have a really cool conversation. And we did. Enjoy! BONUS: Watch Marilu answer DIFFERENT questions on this week’s video at YouTube.com/reallyfamous.
