Just Fl*sh It (Lessons Learned After Flushing My License Down the Toilet)

Yes, it happened. How, you ask? Well you’re only asking that if we haven’t actually met. Because for most who know me, I’m not sure they were really all that surprised. Which I personally think says more about them than me. Or at least that’s what I’m going to keep thinking. Just let me have that. Anyway, since you probably still want to know how, here’s h...

I'm turning 45 in a few days, and I'm still wondering inside when I'm going to feel like a grown up. I mean, I know that technically I AM a grown up - I've been married (twice), have kids, had a successful 20+ year TV career, and now have my own business and own my own home.
