As you know, every week I have a segment called “Monday Muse”. This is where I feature a woman whom I think is inspirational, creative, and all around awesome. This week, I want to share my dream list for the ultimate Monday Muse. (This is also because I don’t have anyone lined up this week again, oops).
I picked 10 women that inspire me for different reasons, and that I could only dream to have a 5 minute conversation with. (Except Julie Andrews, that one I’m not giving up on):
Do you even know me? I’ve been planning my conversation with Julie Andrews for the past 10 years. When I was 14 I met her, and I have no regrets with how our meeting went down; but I’m dreaming of a sit-down conversation over tea. I want to know her love story with Tony Walton, Robert Goulet, and Blake Edwards. Does she regret her career after Star! ? I know one thing, I would never even bring up Mary Poppins or The Sound of Music.
This one goes without saying. She’s real, full of wisdom, stylish, and funny.
How can a woman be so selfless? I want to learn from her more than anything.
What amazes me about Audrey Hepburn is that every woman loves her. There’s nothing unlikable about Audrey. To sit in her presence and just watch her be would be enough.
From being in the spotlight at such a young age to this roller coaster of fame, fortune, and heartbreak. Judy Garland’s life is so complex and sad, I’m fascinated with how she stayed on top of it all.
Betty White is a queen. Her comedic timing is unreal. The stories she could tell about Hollywood.
The character of Angela Bower from Who’s The Boss and Shelley Pfefferman from Transparent are brilliant. I have so much respect for this woman as an actress – plus she’s worked with my two favorites, Tony Danza and Jeffrey Tambor.
I want to get to know the Marilyn behind the sex symbol.
A conversation with Anne Frank would be almost too painful; but oh the things I would learn and take from it.
Oprah, just teach me to be you. Please.
