Corinna on stage at Celebrity Dance Challenge

After months of preparation, the Celebrity Dance Challenge finally took place last night with amazing success.
Sub-titled “Dancing For Self-Esteem” the event benefitted the Eating Disorder Information Network, or EDIN.

My dance partner, Clifton Pierce, and I performed to the song “Freakum Dress” by Beyonce.

These amazing photos are courtesy of my friend, Scott Reeves.

You can also check out video of the performance.

Truly a night I will NEVER forget.

My sincere thanks to EDIN for including me in their good work.

And a huge round of applause to my Glam Squad!

Vanessa Vinci for the dress, Daniel Jones for the hair, Leslie Hines from Authentic Beauty, and Marian Goldberg from David Yurman for the BLING!

I am so excited for tonight’s premiere of “New Moon!”

I’m a huge Twilight Fan — have read all the books — in fact, I finished the first one on a plane, so was able to watch the movie immediately after I put it down!

Tee hee — what can I say? I’m a fan.

A lot of people get put-off by the whole sci-fi vampire aspect of the story.

But I tell people it’s really a love story. That’s what I liked about it.

So I was thrilled to meet two of the stars of the latest installment, “New Moon”.

Edi Gathegi plays “Laurent,” one of the “bad” vampires.

Jamie Campbell-Bower plays “Caius,” also a villain, although he disputes that idea.

You can check out what they had to say on a recent visit to the Nordstrom at Perimeter Mall.

My jacket that day came from my stylist, Evonya Easley.

Up up and away!

Corinna and the balloon house

I have the best job!

Look at the fun package that greeted me yesterday when I got in to work.

The balloon house is part of story line in the Disney/Pixar movie “Up” out on DVD today.

Don’t the balloons match my new yellow sweater nicely? My stylist girlfriend Evonya Easley found it for me.

Can I tell you what a hero having this DVD is going to make me at Thanksgiving?

Not only will I have a cool gift for the kids, but I’ll also be able to tell them about the time I got to actually go up in a floating chair, myself!

I have the best job.

Corinna as Lady Godiva

Okay, not really naked! But close. Check it out!

Saturday night we had a special Halloween edition of Better Mornings Atlatna.

And I got to dress up as Lady Godiva on horseback with the folks from Medieval Times!

Wearing a body stocking on camera was a challenge, to say the least.

Fortunately, I had help from my stylist, Vanessa Vinci and my beautiful make up artist, Zavia Ross.

Vanessa made sure I had all the proper undergarmets to present a “smooth” appearance on camera.

Zavia contributed the dramatic eyes and the last minute inspiration of gold body paint!

Couldn’t have done it with out them!

Ladies Who Launch is my new inspiration!

I attended their annual conference here in Atlanta recently. They invited me to speak about my televsion career along with my girlfriends Tammie Reed and Holly Firfer.
You know what we realized?

No matter what career they choose, women get to a point where they’re ready to put “quality of life” first.

Many of the women I met launched businesses and second careers, while still working for someone else.

And what they all have in common is that they took their careers, lives and futures into their own hands and made it happen!

I love Ladies Who Launch!

And don’t you love my fab green tunic? My stylist girlfriend Evonya Easley found it for me!
