St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis is an American national treasure. Neuro-oncologists such as Dr. Zsila Sadighi, are the very top of their fields and feel the work they do for the children who enter St. Jude is profound....we agree. 💗

Got to hang with one of my favorite athletes, Clippers star Chris Paul. He's of course magic on the court but well-read, poised, well-spoken...one of the jewels of the NBA, as a person.

While visiting St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, I spoke to the general population of employees and went for a tour of the facility. I was in tears a number of times, with inspiration, not sadness.

You must know more about this magical and important hospital. http://www.stjude.org

Henry is so elegant on the floor. He swoons and glides...and he's keenly intelligent and extremely articulate as well. Patient too!!

I told Maksim Chmerkovskiy that a couple of friends of mine met him years ago when he was out on the street rescuing a loose dog. Maks joked with me that he's worked hard to earn his "bad boy" reputation and that story would not serve his image...lol.

Cheryl Burke and I!

This season, the audience will vote as to which partner we will switch to for one week. I'm telling you, I'd LOVE to give a Rumba a go with Cheryl!!!
