 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening. When I founded The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center fifteen years ago, concern about our children's health being impacted by toxic exposures in the environment was not the hot button, trendy issue it is today.  Read more...

 

Deirdre's Dish Pick

 

 Imus Ranch Alfredo Sauce: Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys - Alfredo sauce is traditionally served over pasta, but it’s equally delicious on top of rice or vegetables.  The original version is made with heavy cream and full-fat cheese.  Ours is just as delicious, but a great deal healthier.

The 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.

    Raul de Molina Did Not Get Eaten by Lions. Until This Morning.

    Raul de Molina, Matthew Hiltzik client and co-host of Univision Network’s top-rated entertainment television show, has been in South Africa for more than a month now covering the World Cup.

    “I’m actually very happy, because I was rooting for the Spanish team,” said de Molina, who was born in Cuba and grew up in Spain. “They came in as the favorite for the World Cup, and they lost in the first match! At the beginning I was a little concerned, but they’re going to the finals.”

    On Sunday, Spain will play the Netherlands for the World Cup championship game, and neither country has ever earned this top honor. Though Imus compared watching soccer to watching somebody paint a house, de Molina was into it.

    Despite a slow start with many 0-0 ties, he thinks this World Cup has been fantastic. “People from all over the world have come over here, and they’re having a great time, and everything has worked out great,” he told Imus, perhaps a tad too optimistically.

    “Everything’s not going to work out alright, no matter where you are in the world,” Imus informed his chipper guest. “You’re obviously having a big party there in Johannesburg. We’ll all just get by.”

    Part of de Molina’s party included swimming with sharks and going on safari. At one point, his producers encouraged him to drive a Mini Cooper into a lion enclosure where people drive themselves around, unlike most of the parks where a guide is required.

    “The car had some problems with the clutch, and it became overheated,” de Molina said. “It stopped in the middle where the lions were. The car was on fire! I was outside the care for 15 minutes, and no one came to rescue me.”

    On learning that de Molina’s show was entertainment-centric and not focused on sports, Imus quickly compared him to Billy Bush and, of course, to Pat O’Brien.

    Hoping to find common ground with the I-Man, de Molina boasted that he was a big NASCAR fan, and that he roots for driver Juan Pablo Montoya, with whom he is very close.

    “Now you definitely sound like Pat O’Brien,” said Imus. “Next thing, you’ll be leaving phone messages.”
