I got dumped . . . first time in a long time, but dumped I got.
The View decided to go with Ray Liotta instead of me . . . the nerve. Such are the slings and arrows of the TV biz . . . .
So now it looks like all the promotional energy for the new show will be funneled into the month leading up to and after the premiere on March 12. all for the best actually, but boy was I psyched for a mano a mano tag team match with Babs, Rosie, Joy, and The Hasselbeck.
The family went apple-picking this weekend at what is now my favorite orchard. Rishia is THE BOMB for getting the family out to Deardorff's. If you have not been to Deardorff's in Waconia you are missing out on the ulitmate orchard experience. Deardorff's is family owned and operated, you park on the main road, walk to the apple house where they sell pies, apple donuts, cider, apples, caramel etc., but the fun part is hopping on the tractors and being pulled out to the most idyllic tree stands, loaded with apples, that you have ever seen. It was a perfect day—Noah's first apple party—and with the sun out all day, we were in heaven. As you walk up to the apple house, be sure to taste the fresh pressed cider which is unlike anything you have ever tasted. The juice has not had a chance to oxidize and they use whatever apples are being picked that day, not just traditional cider apples. We drank fresh Honeycrisp juice till we were fortified enough to head to the fields, pet the animals, and browse the pumpkins. Noah, Rishia, and I picked Sweet 16s that tasted like cherry lifesavers, Rishia got herself a huge bag of Honeycrisps that no one else is allowed to touch, and we scored a gaggle of Haralsons for our pal Debbie.
