Bossy Italian Wife On HuffLive!

So last week was really crazy. And by crazy I mean I had a house full of guests--my two friends with their two children, both under the age of 4--and just as they arrived for their three day visit, what do you know, HuffLive (they new live web channel from the Huffington Post) contacted me to see if would do a spot on their site. It was a commentary spot for a piece called, "Dude, You're not Italian!"

Pretty funny, huh?

Of course, despite the guests, the newspaper deadlines, and the fact that I was in the midst of planning my birthday party for Saturday, I had to just take one more thing and pile it up on my plate. Why not? You only live once... unless you are buddhist, and in that case, I am only in this life once. So I had to.

It was really fun. Though the host was trying his best to be disapproving of the fact that fourth generation Italians (and other ethnicities) are claiming their ancestral ties, I totally held my own. I was the only female on the panel, and I would also like to note that I was the most tan Italian-American on the panel. These things gave me great pleasure.

HuffLive liked me so much, they even asked me to be in a second segment the next day...which, despite the fact that I had my other two friends with their four children coming over for a pool date with my two friends and their two kids and still trying to plan that party, I had to also do.

You can check out both these nifty things I did by clicking on either of the two links below:
