If you've ever wanted to make your television debut -- or know a woman, tween or teen who
has -- here's your big chance. NBC News TODAY is working on a segment about how moms
influence their daughter's body image. You don't have to be a mom to be interviewed --
the producers are looking for women, as well as tweens and teens, to share their thoughts
about how they view their own bodies, how that view has evolved (or not) and what your
mom said or did over the years which may have influenced that. If you are a mom to a teen
or tween daughter, the producers are interested in asking how you support her and what
pitfalls you face in doing so.
The catch to all this? You have to move fast! Interviews will be done throughout this week at 30 Rockefeller Plaza in NYC.
Moms and their daughters are welcome to come together, but interviews will be done
separately. Interested teens and tweens will need a signed release form (available at the
studio), whether they come with their moms or not.
The plan is for this segment to run in conjunction with a spot about my new book, You'd Be So Pretty If...: Teaching Our Daughters to Love Their Bodies -- Even When We Don't Love Our Own. Though I won't be there for the interview taping this week, I will be there when the interviews air so it'll be like we finally got a chance to meet ;-).
