S
tephen T. Greenberg, MD, a nationally renowned Cosmetic
Plastic Surgeon based in Manhattan and Woodbury, has
been nominated for the 7th year in a row as one of Long Island’s
best cosmetic surgeons.*
Dr. Greenberg can meet the needs of anyone from today’s top
movie star to the ‘soccer mom’ next door. He performs breast
augmentation, breast lifts and breast reductions and provides
beautiful, natural looking results. He also combines these procedures
with liposuction, tummy tuck, body lift, facelift, eyelid lift or other
non-surgical services is for extremely effective results. Regardless
of which procedures you select, the focus of Dr. Greenberg is to
make his patients as happy and as beautiful as they can be by
turning back the hands of time in a caring, safe and supportive
environment. Most procedures are performed right in his fullyaccredited, beautifully-appointed ambulatory surgery centers.
“Whichever procedure, or
combination of procedures
that you choose, you can
enhance your appearance
and feel confident that you
have selected an expert in
the field; one who will deliver
the results that you seek.”
Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg – Once Again Nominated
as One of L.I.’s Best Cosmetic Surgeons* *LI Press
The eyelid lift only takes about an hour and can give a very youthful
appearance to both the upper and lower lids. A facelift, whether it
is a mini, lower, or full lift can take years off of facial appearance.
A facelift is a great way to pull up the excessive skin, rejuvenate
the neck and lift the jowls. Mini, or modified facelifts are often
performed on much younger patients before the signs of aging
are advanced. Overall, the natural look is of utmost importance.
Combining laser resurfacing procedures and rhinoplasty is effective
in completing a full facial rejuvenation. In addition, injections work
well to eliminate facial lines and wrinkles, such as Botox Cosmetic®
and Juvederm, coupled with non-surgical skin tightening and laser
hair removal to ensure phenomenal results.
Whichever procedure, or combination of procedures that you
choose, you can enhance your appearance and feel confident that
you have selected an expert in the field; one who will deliver the
results that you seek.
Not an Actual Patient
Dr. Greenberg is committed to working with his patients on the
importance of overall health, diet, exercise and maintaining a
positive state of mind. A comprehensive assessment of a person’s
needs allows people to achieve a positive and realistic result as well
as a natural and younger look.
Dr. Greenberg always uses the latest in new technology including
CoolSculpting® by ZELTIQ®, a body sculpting, fat-freezing, nonsurgical procedure that reduces inches quickly around the abdomen.
He also perfected a new procedure called Rapid Recovery Breast
Augmentation. Using new techniques he can offer patients a truly
"Rapid Recovery." Breast augmentation recovery with minimal
pain, swelling and bruising, coupled with a notably decreased
recovery time and natural look have resulted in proven patient
satisfaction. Recognizing the need for patients to quickly return
to their normal activities, Dr. Greenberg prides himself in his
patients' natural results and faster recovery time.
Dr. Greenberg is well-known for his expertise in the field of
cosmetic plastic surgery and is frequently interviewed for his
knowledge on the latest cosmetic surgery techniques. He has
appeared on CBS, Fox News, NBC and News 12 Long Island. He has
also appeared in national magazines such as Harper's Bazaar,
Cosmopolitan, More, and Elle, as well as in The New York Times and
Newsday. Dr. Greenberg hosts 7 NY area Cosmetic Surgery Radio
Shows on Fridays and Saturdays on KJOY 98.3 FM, Party 105.3 FM,
WALK 97.5 FM, LaFiesta 98.5/96.9 FM, My Country 96.1 FM, WRCN
103.9 FM and WILD 102.7 FM (NJ) and he is often a featured
speaker for women's groups, spas, and health and skin care institutes.
“See the doctor who

Breast Surgery Combined with Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction
by Charlotte Rhee, MD, F.A.C.S., P.C.
Many of my patients come to me seeking help with the changes that can occur after childbirth. Following childbirth, a woman’s breast can grow to uncomfortable proportions or just the opposite can happen. A woman’s breast can
actually lose volume and shrink, resulting in the breast appearing “deflated.”
Additionally, a large number of women come to me seeking help with the
post partum changes of their abdomen. During pregnancy the skin and abdominal wall muscles are stretched. Following childbirth, the abdomen can
protrude and the skin can be loose or sag. In some cases, the abdominal muscles can be so
weakened that the individual may look like she is still pregnant. Despite daily workouts including
sit ups and crunches, a tummy tuck may be needed to restore these muscles.
ing breast reduction. Both groups of women want to have breasts that are proportional to their
body size with the most natural result possible. In certain situations, a breast lift is also needed
to tighten lax skin. The laxity can be the result of pregnancy or weight loss. When a breast lift
is needed, I utilize the lollipop scar technique. A breast lift procedure is very similar to a breast
reduction. The only difference is that with a breast reduction, breast tissue is removed.
Combined Breast/Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Procedures.
Many of my patients who have breast surgery also have other procedures performed at the
same time. This allows for one surgery and one recovery. The most common combined procedures performed by Dr. Rhee are breast surgery, whether it is a breast reduction or augmentation,
combined with tummy tuck, also known as abdominoplasty. For those patients

BON BONS CHOCOLATIER
As women, we tend to focus so much of our time and
energy on those around us that sometimes the importance of living the life we want for ourselves gets lost.
One day, I found myself with three wonderful daughters,
a loving husband, a beautiful home on Long Island, and
a boring desk job. But the knitting and sewing that I was
doing as a hobby was so wonderfully fulfilling, creative,
and interesting. The fabrics, the textures, the jewels and
stones ... it all made me feel so inspired!
And so began the Homegrown Boutique. I focus on
simple shapes that flatter a woman’s figure, while at the
same time, allow me to indulge my artsy and whimsical
tendencies, creating designs that are trendy yet timeless, and celebrate the contours and landscape of every
woman.
My earth-friendly philosophy is borne of raising children in a world fraught with issues. The terms “global
warming” and “carbon footprint” are in their vocabularies before they enter kindergarten! The old-fashioned
concept of hand-made just seems to it right in with the
concept of earth-friendly. We utilize good old American
woman power. No factory means no emissions and no
pollutants. But we take it a step further with our focus
on organic cottons, bamboo, silk and other sustainable
materials. It adds a richness of quality and character, and
quite honestly, it just feels good!
Homegrown Boutique is an eco-friendly brand of
dresses, tops, outerwear and accessories. Each piece is
100% hand knit, sewn, crafted and created by local artists. We offer employment to Long Island women who
need to earn a living in this crazy economy. And if I ever
need ideas or inspiration, my daughters are sure to tell
me what they would like me to design next.
Welcome to Bon Bons Chocolatier, one of the most
delicious shops on Long Island, located at 319 Main
Street in the heart of Huntington. Bon Bons offers
more than 50 varieties of hand-crafted chocolates
plus a mouth-watering selection of beautifully molded
chocolate Santa’s, angels, sugarplum cottages and nutcrackers to delight chocolate lovers of every age. “Everything is made fresh, in small batches, and still forkdipped or en robed by hand,” says proud owner Mary
Alice Meinersman. “As a complement to our confections, each year my daughter Susannah and I carefully
select a unique collection of gifts and decorations to
make our customers’ homes sparkle for the holidays.”
Stroll through Bon Bons and enjoy sweet aromas wafting through the air as you view the chocolate-making
process through their glass-enclosed candy kitchen.
Whether you crave a piece of luscious chocolate, a gift
box or a special party favor, you’ll be dazzled by the
brilliant selection and presentation at Bon Bons Chocolatier. For more information, visit bonbonschocolatier.

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY BY LIZ IRWIN
“I find my inspiration in
nature,” says Long Island
photographer Liz Irwin.
“My goal is to capture the
moments that take our
breath away and fill our
souls with joy. Texture,
the play of light, and color are my tools.” Thanks
to Etsy, which provides a
marketplace for crafters,

sell their handmade creations, vintage goods and crafting supplies, Liz Irwin’s stunning photographs are available for sale. Visit etsy.com/shop/PhotosPhibersnPaint.

What is Sublingual Immunotherapy?
Unlike most allergy drugs - which treat only symptoms - sublingual immunotherapy addresses the underlying cause of allergies. Allergy drops are
administered in gradually increasing dosages until the patient develops a tolerance to the allergy-causing substance.

Women Hidden in History
Author Philippa Gregory Writes about Lesser-Known English Royals
On her first U.S. tour in two years,
bestselling author Philipa Gregory
made Port Washington her first stop.
A lively presentation – complete with
Powerpoint and a video – thrilled the
capacity crowd at Landmark on Main
Street, in a program jointly hosted by
Landmark and the Friends of the Port
Washington Library. Observing Ms.
Gregory’s exquisite presenting style,
punctuated by a superb sense of
humor and boundless knowledge of
her subject, one quickly understands
the author’s immense popularity.
Perhaps the best known of Philippa
Gregory’s books, The Other Boleyn
Girl, was subsequently made into a
blockbuster Hollywood movie, but
the author has also written 22 other
books, mostly historical
fiction. She is
undoubtedly
the
most
prolific writer
about English queens
and
other
royal women
– including
obscure figures never chronicled before. Her meticulous research, a Ph.D in history, and a passion for women’s
history, make Ms. Gregory one of the most widely
recognized authorities in the field.
In her latest endeavor – about an era commonly referred to as “The War
of the Roses” – Ms. Gregory delights us once again with not just one book,
but two: an historical novel and a biography. Both introduce us to Jacquetta, Dutchess of Bedford, a captivating woman who survived two reigns
and two wars to become an admired figure at two rival courts and whose
daughter was the first commoner to marry a king of England for love. In
the novel, The Lady of the Rivers, the reader is treated to a magical tale
about a remarkable woman who, up till now, has been just a footnote in
history. The biography, The Women of the Cousins’ War: The Duchess, The
Queen, and the King’s Mother – coauthored with two other prominent historians—David Baldwin and Michael Jones – focuses on Jacquetta, plus her
daughter, Elizabeth Woodville, and Margaret Beaufort, who married Henry
VII to become the matriarch of the House of Tudor (and the mother of
Henry VIII). The book offer fascinating insights into the characters explored

by Ms. Gregory in The Lady of the
Rivers, as well as in Ms. Gregory’s
two other historical novels of this
period, The White Queen and The
Red Queen.
I had a chance to catch up with
Philippa Gregory over a cup of tea
before she took the stage at Landmark.
Did you always write?
From the time I was a child, I always loved writing. My first job was
as a print journalist, then I was a radio journalist, and then I earned a
Ph.D in History. So I’ve always written.
Who are some of your literary influences?
I read the classics: Dickens, Austen, E.M. Forster, Henry James, F.
Scott Fitzgerald. I don’t read much
contemporary fiction.
Why did you decide to write historical fiction rather than history
books?
Because I love writing novels.
Writing fiction is an elegant craft.
Writing history is totally different.
I like researching and writing, but I
am foremost a creative writer.
You did something unique: you
wrote both a fictional account and a biography of Jaquetta at the same time.
When I was researching Jacquetta for my novel, I found her to be a fascinating woman, yet she was primarily an historical footnote. I learned that
there were no biographies written about her, and I had learned so much
about her from my research for the novel, that I felt I had the building
blocks for a biography.
In your introduction to the Women of the Cousin’s War, you discuss the
different language needed when writing historical fiction versus history.
Yes, when writing history, especially when you are piecing together bits
of research, you must often speculate about what has happened. When
writing fiction, you have to write about characters with more certainty. For
a historical account, we may not know if a woman had a child in March or
September, but a fictional character must be able to speak with certainty.
You conduct extensive research for all your books. What is your process?
I use the same process for all my books. I visit significant sites, I talk to specialist historians and museum curators, I read and read and read, and when I have
completed about four months of research I start to write, and then rewrite, while
continuing to read. The whole process takes about 18 months. I work wherever

in the world I happen to be, and I often travel with a box of research notes!
How do you choose the women you write about?
I don’t choose them; they choose me. I come across an interesting
woman while doing my research for one book, and decide to write about
her in my next book.
Will they be making any more Hollywood feature films from any of
your novels?
I do hope so, but period movies are very expensive. The Other Boleyn
Girl cost at least 72 million dollars to produce.
Tell me about your project in The Gambia.
When I was researching A Respectful Trade,
my novel about slavery, I traveled to The
Gambia. While there, I met a schoolmaster
who wanted to build a well in the schoolyard
to be used for supplying the students with
fresh water, and for an irrigation system to
grow crops to supplement lunch. I paid for
that well, and have since raised the money
to pay for 160 additional wells. The project
has become the largest builder of wells in
the country.

Woman’s Health Update
STARTING TO NOTICE A HOT FLASH NOW AND THEN?
THERE MAY BE A POSITIVE SIDE
Women who have experienced hot flashes (also called hot flushes) and other related symptoms on the road to menopause may have a 50-percent lower
risk of developing the most common forms of breast cancer after menopause
than do postmenopausal women who have never had such symptoms, according to a recent study by researchers at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center in Seattle.
The results of this first study to examine the relationship between menopausal symptoms and breast-cancer risk were published in the medical journal Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers and Prevention.
The protective effect appeared to increase along with the number and severity of menopausal symptoms, according to senior author Christopher I.
Li, M.D., Ph.D., a breast-cancer epidemiologist in the Hutchinson Center’s
Public Health Sciences Division. “In particular, we found that women who
experienced more intense hot flushes — the kind that woke them up at
night — had a particularly low risk of breast cancer,” he says.
Li and colleagues suspected a link between menopause misery and decreased breast-cancer risk because hormones such as estrogen and proges-

terone play an important role in the development of most breast cancers,
and reductions in these hormones caused by the gradual cessation of ovarian
function can affect the frequency and severity of menopausal symptoms.
“Since menopausal symptoms occur as hormone levels fluctuate and drop,
we hypothesized that women who experienced symptoms such as hot flushes and night sweats — particularly frequent and severe symptoms — might
have a lower risk of breast cancer due to decreased estrogen levels,” he says.
Indeed, the researchers found a 40- to 60-percent reduction in the risk of
invasive ductal and invasive lobular carcinoma (the two most common types
of breast cancer) among women who experienced hot flushes and other
14r-0/(*4-"/%80."/rDecember 2011
symptoms. The association between such symptoms and decreased cancer
risk did not change even after the researchers accounted for other factors
known to boost breast-cancer risk, such as obesity and use of hormone replacement therapy.
For the study, which was funded by the National Cancer Institute, Li and
colleagues interviewed 1,437 post-menopausal Seattle-area women, 988 of
whom had been previously diagnosed with breast cancer and 449 of whom
had not. (They served as a comparison group.) The women were surveyed
about perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms ranging from hot flushes,
night sweats and insomnia to vaginal dryness, irregular or heavy menstrual
bleeding, depression and anxiety.
“While menopausal symptoms can certainly have a negative impact on
quality of life, our study suggests that there may be a silver lining if the reduction in breast-cancer risk is confirmed in future studies,” Li says. “If these
findings are confirmed, they have the potential to improve our understanding of the causes of breast cancer and to improve approaches to preventing
this disease.”
MOM’S OBESITY MAY LEAD TO INFERTILITY IN THE
NEXT GENERATION, STUDY SUGGESTS
Levels of the hormone ghrelin are low in obese women, and a recent study,
accepted for publication in the medical journal Endocrinology, reports that
mice whose mothers had low ghrelin levels were less fertile due to a defect
in implantation.
Hormones involved in energy balance and metabolism, such as ghrelin,
have been shown to regulate reproductive function in animals and humans.
However ghrelin’s role in reproductive-tract development remains unclear.
The current study examined the effect of ghrelin deficiency on the developmental programming of female fertility.
“While our study involved mice, we believe our findings have significant implications for women,” says Hugh Taylor, M.D., of the Yale University School of
Medicine in New Haven, Conn. and lead author of the study. “Our results suggest
that low ghrelin levels could program the development of the uterus in the female
children of obese women. These women may then be less fertile as adults.”
ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE MAY BE INHERITED FROM YOUR
MOTHER, RESEARCHERS SAY
When it comes to family tendencies toward developing Alzheimer’s disease,
the odds of you inheriting it from your mother are higher than from your
father, according to the results of a new small study published in the medical
journal Neurology. The study was supported by the National Institute on Aging and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
It’s estimated that people who have first-degree relatives with Alzheimer’s
disease are four to 10 times more likely to develop the disease themselves
compared with people with no family history, says study author Robyn Honea, D.Phil., of the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City.
For the study, 53 dementia-free people age 60 and over were followed for
two years. Eleven participants reported having a mother with Alzheimer’s
disease, 10 had a father with Alzheimer’s disease and 32 had no history of
the disease in their family. The groups were given brain scans and cognitive

tests throughout the study.
The researchers found that people with a mother who had Alzheimer’s disease
had twice as much gray-matter shrinkage as the groups who had a father or
no parent with Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, those who had a mother with
Alzheimer’s disease had about one and a half times more whole-brain shrinkage
per year compared to those who had a father with the disease. Shrinking of the
brain, or brain atrophy, occurs in Alzheimer’s disease.
“Using 3-D mapping methods, we were able to look at the different regions
of the brain affected in people with maternal or paternal ties to Alzheimer’s
disease,” says Honea. “In people with a maternal family history of the disease, we found differences in the breakdown processes in specific areas of
the brain that are also affected by Alzheimer’s disease, leading to shrinkage.
Understanding how the disease may be inherited could lead to better prevention and treatment strategies.”
NATURAL SUPPLEMENTS MAY REDUCE COMMON-COLD
DURATION BY JUST HALF A DAY
Ugh. You just realized you’ve you’re catching a cold. Should you run out and
buy one of those frequently advertised over-the-counter herbal treatments? According to research by the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Medicine
and Public Health, these products don’t make a big difference in the duration or
severity of a cold.
Their study, published in the medical journal Annals of Internal Medicine, involved echinacea, a wild flower (also known as the purple cone flower) found in
meadows and prairies of the Midwestern plains. The supplement is sold in capsule
form in drug and retail stores. Dried echinacea root has been used in other remedies, such as teas and liquid extracts, as well.
The randomized trial involved more than 700 people. The subjects, all of whom
had very early symptoms of a cold, were divided
into four groups. One group received no pills,
a second group received what they knew was
echinacea and a third group was given either
echinacea or a placebo, but they did not know
which. Participants recorded their symptoms
twice a day for the duration of the cold, up to
two weeks.
According to Bruce Barrett, lead researcher
and an associate professor of family medicine,
patients receiving echinacea saw the duration
of their cold reduced by 7 to 10 hours. But he says this was not considered a
significant decrease.
“Trends were in the direction of benefit, amounting to an average half-day
reduction in the duration of a week-long cold or an approximate 10 percent
reduction in overall severity,” he says. “However, this dose regimen did not make
a large impact on the course of the common cold, compared either to blinded
placebo or to no pills.”
Barrett says a larger trial involving people who have found echinacea useful
may help provide more answers. He adds that there were no side effects seen,
so there is no reason that cold sufferers should stop using echinacea if they think
it helps them. O

Breast Surgery Combined with Tummy Tuck and/or Liposuction
by Charlotte Rhee, MD, F.A.C.S., P.C.
Many of my patients come to me seeking help with the changes that can occur after childbirth. Following childbirth, a woman’s breast can grow to uncomfortable proportions or just the opposite can happen. A woman’s breast can
actually lose volume and shrink, resulting in the breast appearing “deflated.”
Additionally, a large number of women come to me seeking help with the
post partum changes of their abdomen. During pregnancy the skin and abdominal wall muscles are stretched. Following childbirth, the abdomen can
protrude and the skin can be loose or sag. In some cases, the abdominal muscles can be so
weakened that the individual may look like she is still pregnant. Despite daily workouts including
sit ups and crunches, a tummy tuck may be needed to restore these muscles.

to tighten lax skin. The laxity can be the result of pregnancy or weight loss. When a breast lift
is needed, I utilize the lollipop scar technique. A breast lift procedure is very similar to a breast
reduction. The only difference is that with a breast reduction, breast tissue is removed.
Combined Breast/Tummy Tuck and Liposuction Procedures.
Many of my patients who have breast surgery also have other procedures performed at the

Keeping it Real
with
Hoda Kotb
by Rachell Koegel
T
here is nothing artificial about Hoda Kotb. She celebrates herself and the
people in her life with complete honesty, sincerity and a full heart. The
newly released Hoda: How I Survived War Zones, Bad Hair, Cancer, and
Kathie Lee is the story of her life told boldly and sprinkled with humor. She
shares with her reader stories of her family, her rigorous search landing her first job as
a reporter, her battle with cancer fought simultaneously with the discovery of her
husband’s infidelity, the wide array of stories covered while trekking across the globe
and working along-side Kathie Lee Gifford on the Today Show. Interviewing Hoda
Kotb feels very much like conversing with an old and dear friend – talk flows effortlessly and naturally and time passes quickly. She is no different from most of us, as she
explains, and that is one of the many endearing qualities that make her interesting
and relatable.
Considering how vast your experiences and how many stories you have covered,
how did you decide which stories to include in your autobiography and which to leave
out?
I can’t remember anything. I used to remember all kinds of things, but then suddenly “boom” it went, so I went with the ones with that really stuck with me, the
ones I thought people could connect with. It wasn’t about the place or setting. I chose
the ones that made an impact on me and on our viewers; the ones that I thought
people would enjoy reading about. I didn’t want it to be like watching someone’s
home movies because that can get dull. I wanted it to make an impact.
You have done so many interviews, and mention a few as standing out, but are there
any you would still love to do or would like to talk about specifically?
At the end of the day I think the people I love to interview the most are the ones
who tell the truth. It doesn’t matter who they are. It took me all these years to realize
that is what makes the best interview. I could have the best subject in the world sitting
across from me, but if they aren’t going to tell you everything or they tell you in the
way they want to be perceived, it won’t be a great interview. If someone is raw, and
tells you the truth – suddenly the interview is a million times better.
That is what you describe in your autobiography as happening when Ann Curry interviewed you and you said you started to cry and hadn’t expected that to happen.
I didn’t expect it then with Ann because I am a journalist and was aware of what I
was doing, but suddenly you lose control and you cant believe it is you. You think, “I
do interviews, I don’t get interviewed,” and it reminded me about how vulnerable we
all are and how delicate we have to be as reporters. We are all one question away
from falling apart. I was interviewing Angelica Houston, and her dad had died a few
years earlier and I was asking her about her dad. She has told the story a thousand
times, I am sure, about her father. I asked, “What did you lose that day?” She looked
at me and she kept looking at me, and I thought maybe she hadn’t heard me, and
then she started crying and said “I lost everything.” We are all right there on the edge:
the strongest of us, the weakest of us. We have to be gentle with each other and that
is one of the things I learned. That is one of the reasons Anne Curry was with me
because she took care of me; that’s why I picked her, because I knew she would. There
has to be an incredible trust with someone, especially when you are sharing the tenderest parts of you.
You have such a positive attitude and one technique you share in the autobiography
is that when you struggle with something you don’t dwell on it. How did you come
to master this approach?
People are wired differently. When things are too big for me to handle or are out of
my control, I honestly know I can’t do anything to fix it, so knowing that, I end up
freeing myself a little bit. But when a lot of little things worry me, I can be up all night.
Big things I know I can’t control, like when I was sick, all I could do was pick the right
doctor and fall asleep. People would say to me: “You really beat it.” And I said: “We
need to thank Dr. Freya R. Schnabel, because she beat it – she got in there and did
what she was trained to do.” Life is funny that way. We have to realize there are certain things we can’t control. It makes life so much easier when we take those things
off our plate, and then deal with the things we can control.
You use the word ”forward” often throughout your book. Will you talk a little about
why it is so significant?
I’m looking at my ring now. It says “forward” on it. In life you can really get stuck in a
bad place. It’s easy. You can get stuck in the weeds and suddenly you wonder how you
got there and you may think there is no way out. If you talk about things too much and
you only have one conversation in your life, you get stuck. I remember when I got sick I
would write in my journal every day what I was feeling at the time and at the bottom I
wrote the word “forward” because It reminded me I am here now, but this is not where
I am going to live my life, in this hole. It’s funny how a single word can be so impactful,
but it was and it is still to me,
because it reminded me you
shouldn’t live your life sitting
and holding yourself in deeper – there is a way out. You
need to remind yourself of
that. Tomorrow is not going
to be like today. A lot of people who get sick only have
one conversation – and that
can be detrimental and
harmful if that is all you have.
It sounds as if that is what
propelled you from the very
beginning of your career
when you kept facing rejection but got right back in
your car and kept driving from state to state to land a job. Without using the word
forward, was that philosophy motivating you or something else?
That was just insanity. I don’t even know what that was. How on earth I didn’t just
drive back to my mom’s house...? I think it was that I was stubborn and I couldn’t
believe everyone thought I was so terrible. I wasn’t cocky. I was sort of freakish looking and I had a weird name. By the time I got to the tenth interview I would have
scared away just about anybody, but for some reason, I hate losing. (My sister always
said I am stubborn and I am bossy, and those traits can be really bad or good, it depends on what it is.) I felt like you can’t have that many bad days before you get a
good one. I am generally an optimist, so I was surprised when one after the next everyone was saying no. I thought something doesn’t seem right, something isn’t going
right; I must not be hitting the right spot or meeting the right person. And I, of course,
began questioning my abilities, because they needed to be questioned, especially
then. But I had played sports in high school and never gave up, until the buzzer rang,
“We have to realize there are
certain things we can’t
control. It makes life so much
easier when we take those
things off our plate, and then
deal with the things we can
control.”
even if we were getting creamed. I just really thought there was a chance...and I think
I play that way in life. I think there is a chance: you can hit that crazy three point shot
and get fouled and suddenly you can win the game. Can it be done? I think it can. I
think that way about life too.
Given your own experiences and being a woman in her forties, what would you say
are biggest challenges facing women in their forties, especially in the entertainment
industry?
I was talking to somebody yesterday who said there should be something called
“the end of striving.” We always feel like we are fighting to get ahead- clawing and
scratching and working and by the end of the day we are exhausted; then we go to
bed to do it all again the next day. She said the end of striving means you find your
sweet spot, the thing you are meant to do on the planet, and suddenly you aren’t
scratching and clawing anymore; suddenly, it is like you’re riding a wave. You are finally doing what you’re supposed to be doing. I think for all of us in life, sometimes
we find it, sometimes we don’t or can’t. We have other obligations: kids to raise and
bills to pay, so we can’t say “this isn’t exactly right for me,” but we all know what that
feeling feels like when you are doing something and you look up at the clock and you
can’t believe it’s four o’clock already because your day flew as you were doing something you loved more than anything.
Women in our forties are trying to find that spot, because we give to everyone: our
kids, husbands, bosses; everybody is ahead of us on the food chain. I think sometimes
it is good to take a breath and ask “Is this right for me?” Once we find the right spot,
life suddenly becomes easier, and then life is not always a struggle, a challenge, and
we can be riding a wave.
One issue you didn’t really address in your book, but surrounded by in your industry,
is the world of plastic surgery. What is your view on it?
I’m one of those people who believes if it makes you feel better you should do it. I
once interviewed a plastic surgeon for Dateline and he was working on young girls
(underage) and I said, “I don’t understand why you are doing that.” And he said “I
am helping their self-esteem.” I remember thinking at that time, but not saying it; “If
their self-esteem is what needs fixing, are you really the kind of doctor they ought to
be seeing?” I think if you have something that has been bothering you your entire life,
then go do it. I have never done it, but I won’t say I never will, because one never
knows, but I haven’t done it and I like when people look like who they are. Sometimes
you look at someone and you think “Who is that?,” because it doesn’t look like him or
her at all, and it seems a little strange to do. But I understand if something bothers you
and has always bothered you, why not fix it if you can? For some people it changes
everything: How they approach people, their confidence level....
In your book you mention how much you always wanted to become a teacher and
that you still want to become a teacher. Do you see your line of work as a form of
educating and you as a type of teacher? Or are you still determined to realize that goal
of becoming a teacher?
I think we can inspire or lighten the load for people, but we are not teachers in the
purest sense. I remember my seventh grade teacher who made me believe there is
nothing I couldn’t do. She inspired me. There is that time in your life when you’re
growing up and you have that teacher who can really change the course of your life.
I like it when kids are young and they aren’t feeling the grown up issues or feeling
embarrassed – when they get to be themselves completely. I have interviewed so
many really great teachers. I remember this one I loved so much, she was a kindergarten teacher, and she was asking the kids from a bad part of town to go up to the
board and draw a bad part of a monster. They would tell her to draw red scary fingernails or mean eyes and at the end each kid came up and was able to erase part of the
scary monster and there was this one little kid who kept scrubbing the chalkboard and
scrubbing it and I looked at him, and the teacher whispered to me, “That little boy is
being abused and I know it, but I can’t prove it yet.” I watched her and how she nurtured him and I thought how these kids for this period of time are safe. Their homes
may not be safe but they are safe here with this teacher. I thought what a great thing
to give a kid: a safe place and a place to inspire him or her. Meeting all these great
teachers always made me want to be one and I am going to be one so
mark my words... It is such a cool profession.
Describe your typical morning.
After hitting the snooze button at four am, I will have my morning coffee,
look at a few websites and head to the gym by five. I go in, pad around, do
some working out, talk to people; it’s kind of a work out and kind of a way to
wake up. Before we know it, it’s time for the meeting at eight o’clock where
we talk about topics we will discuss on the Today Show. By nine am we are
picking outfits (for me and Kathy) and at ten we do the show. From 11 on it
can be anything from a lunch meeting to a Dateline meeting to a Today Show
interview or an interview like this, and sometimes there are evening events,
but I try to tuck in early, because by nine pm I can’t believe anyone is awake. I

born. The father
of News 12 is
one of my personal heroes, Charles
Dolan. Mr. Dolan started in the business with his wife, editing and distributing sports and industrial films
from their Cleveland apartment. They
sold that business and headed east.
In the early 1960s Mr. Dolan established Teleguide - those early informational channels on NYC hotel TVs.
Next, he started Sterling Manhattan
Cable, and in the early
1970s he put movies
on those cables when
he founded HBO. By
1986, Mr. Dolan was
a real Long Islander
and became hyper-local. He created News 12 Long Island
– America’s first, regional, 24-hour
“neighborhood” news network.
You might remember our early LIRR
billboards that said things like, “Babylon, not Brooklyn.” “Shelter Island,
not Staten Island.” The idea was to
save you from waiting through hours
of NYC television news, for just a
mention of Nassau or Suffolk.
We were writing those first stories of
your neighborhood, your schools, your
taxes, your kids, on typewriters. We
typed on 5-ply carbon-copy paper. We
made script changes by crossing out
type and handwriting over it. The best
production assistants could rip the carbon out, without tearing our scripts to
shreds. (They weren’t all that good.)
Major change came in the early 1990s
when we brought personal computers
into News 12. I remember wondering
if I’d ever figure them out. In those
early days, the majority of Long Island
homes didn’t have computers, so we
couldn’t direct viewers to news12.com
for more details on stories.
How times have changed. We’ve
gone HD, gotten new anchor desks
and just like your home cameras, our
equipment has gotten much smaller.
But these days we’re very big on viewer input, viewer story tips and viewer
pictures. Our morning assignment editor, Tara McDonald, was a new college
graduate when she started at News 12
in 2006 and recalls that “even though
that was only five and half years ago,
Facebook was still a ‘college thing’
back then, and I hadn’t even heard of
Twitter yet.” Now we
use them everyday.
My co-anchor since
2004, Elizabeth Hashagen, says the best
part of News 12 is
the family feeling that
comes with a core of people who’ve
been here for the whole ride: Lea Tyrrell, Colleen McVey, Doug Geed and
writers, producers, editors and engineers you never see including director Kevin Benjamin, our most veteran
employee.
This News 12 idea has really caught
on. We’ve sprouted wings with our
News 12 neighborhood coverage on
News 12 New Jersey, Connecticut,
Brooklyn, the Bronx, Westchester and
Hudson Valley. And we’ve been copied from Washington D.C. and New
England, to Orange County, California.
We’ve come a long way Long Island.
Thanks Mr. Dolan. O
News 12’s Carol Silva has been
bringing Long Islanders their local
news for more than 20 years weekday mornings at 5:30AM on News
12 Long Island.
This News 12 idea
has really caught
on.
