Imus in the Morning 

June 1st, 1968 - March 29th, 2018

Deirdre's Corner

The Vaccination Debate: Today we investigate one of the biggest medical controversies of our time: vaccines. There’s little dispute about this much-- vaccines save many lives, and rarely, they injure or kill. A special federal vaccine court has paid out billions for injuries from brain damage to death. But not for the form of brain injury we call autism. Now—we have remarkable new information: a respected pro-vaccine medical expert used by the federal government to debunk the vaccine-autism link, says vaccines can cause autism after all. He claims he told that to government officials long ago, but they kept it secret.

Growing Healthy Kids - By Deirdre Imus, February 14, 2019 - We do so much as parents to protect our kids from harm throughout their lives. We hold their hands as they cross the street, tell them not to run near the edge of the pool, and strap a helmet on their head before each bike ride. The dangers out in the world are real and at times they feel innumerable, as if the next boogey monster is waiting just around the bend – or in some cases, inside your breakfast bowl.

Autism Rates Continue To Rise - By Deirdre Imus, January 2019 - A new study released in December suggests that rates of autism, which have been increasing for nearly two decades, are rising still. According to research published in the journal Pediatrics, one in 40 children – or 2.5 percent of all kids between the ages of 3 and 17 – has an autism spectrum disorder.

Imus Ranch Foundation 

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.
