June 1st, 1968 - March 29th, 2018

Deirdre's Corner

Cell Phones and 5G Technology: The evidence from most scientific studies has indicated that we’d be wise to reduce the amount of time spent holding a cell phone within inches of our brains. It has been a slow march rather than a race toward understanding the effects of this radiation on our bodies, but most research, including a study linking it to cancer, confirms our worst fears.

Exclusive Interview: Deirdre Imus Is on a Mission to Save Our Kids and Remove Toxins - Alpha Rising spent time with Deirdre Imus and got an exclusive tour of the Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center at Hackensack University Medical Center in NJ.

Deirdre's Book Pick Of The Week

Methylation Diet and Lifestyle by Dr. Kara Fitzgerald & Romilly Hodges, MS, CNS - The “dance of methylation” extends far beyond supplementing with B12 and methylated folate. Indeed, long term outcome studies using this approach are lacking, and research suggests caution is advised with regard to imbalanced hypermethylation. However, much can be done to safely support methylation balance.

With the closing of The Imus Ranch For Kids with Cancer, The Imus Ranch Foundation was formed to donate 100% of all donations previously devoted to The Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer to various other charities whose work and missions compliment those of the ranch. The initial donation from The Imus Ranch Foundation was awarded to Tackle Kids Cancer, a program of The HackensackUMC Foundation and the New York Giants.  In addition, once the Imus Ranch for Kids with Cancer is sold, 100% of those funds will be contributed to The Imus Ranch Foundation.

Lee Woodruff, author of "Perfectly Imperfect," Might Be Perfectly Impervious to Embarassment

Lee Woodruff does a lot of stuff: she’s a life and family contributor for ABC’s Good Morning America; a freelance writer who recently wrote a piece about Deirdre Imus; and a member of the board of trustees for the Bob Woodruff Family Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides services to injured veterans and their families. She’s a;sp got a hunky husband and her most recent book, Perfectly Imperfect, is out in paperback. To top it all off, Woodruff is somehow still incredibly humble.

“You are so mistaken!” she told Imus, who insisted she was glamorous. “This is your wonderful makeup artist. I’m a mom, I’m a working person, I’m an old lady. Bob knows. He wakes up to this face.”

Something Bob no longer wakes up to, however, is his wife’s now infamous Lanz of Salzburg flannel nightgown, which she immortalized in Perfectly Imperfect in telling the story of her husband throwing it out of a window. She has since shot a YouTube video and written a song about the episode, and played some clips today for the I-Man. Her kids, she added, are appropriately mortified.

“They should be!” Imus observed.

Woodruff also recounts in her book taking her four children on a special White House tour when their dad was in “coma-land” after being hit by an IED explosion in Iraq.

“Nobody was really packed for that,” she said. But it’s not like they were meeting the President or anything. Oh, wait.

“Bush would like to meet you,” Woodruff recalled an aide telling her. So she and her motley crew were ushered into a private room, where they met the President. “I’m looking at my kids, and there is a Don King rats nest of hair…and my one daughter has sweatpants on that say ‘The End’ on the butt.”

Woodruff’s brood now also consists of two dogs, one of which is a combination of a Shih Tzu and a Yorkshire terrier.  “My kids love that they got a Shih Tzu so they can say the first part of the word legally,” said Woodruff, claiming she tempers her trucker-like use of swear words when in the company of her children and her mother.

Imus could not get over this, since he and his wife swear incessantly in front of their son, who does the same. “So you can’t say to him, ‘Honey, don’t drop the F-bomb,’” said Imus. “Because he looks at you like you’re crazy.”

Which is sort of how Imus looked at his guest when she expressed her desire to give him “a big, fat, wet kiss” like she did last time. “I’ll do it again, if Deirdre will let me,” Woodruff said, laughing. “I love to make you blush.”

Based on the candid content in Perfectly Imperfect, that’s something she seems incapable of doing herself.
