TUESDAY WITH JEANNIE WEENIE

In case you missed it...

• Rosie's longtime friend Jeannie (weenie) Kopetic sat in on today's show. Rosie told a story about how tired she was because she hung out and played poker with Tyne Daly last night. Rosie, Tyne, Samantha Bee, Katie Finneran, and Natasha Lyonne all performed in Love Loss and What I Wore last month at the Westside Theater in New York City.

• Rosie will have a Sirius/XM expert on once a week to answer your questions.

• Jeannie talked about her weekend and how she went on a Metro Limousine Wine Tour to the Long Island wineries. Jeannie is a speech therapist for pre-school aged children for the Nassau County department of Health in New York. She said watching the documentary The Horse Boy and listening to the interview yesterday with the father in the film has completely changed her way of connecting with the autistic children she works with. Jeannie called the documentary "life-altering."

• Rosie mentioned how she and Blake's speech therapist Lois Kam Heymann have written a book called "The Sound of Hope - Recognizing, Coping With, and Treating Your Child's Auditory Processing Disorder" which is set to be released on April 27th, 2010. Pre-order your copy HERE!

• Jeannie was wearing Rosie's Eileen Fisher clothes but still prefers her Lane Bryant and Avenue clothes to Eileen.

• Rosie read some of the negative responses she's been getting regarding her episode last week highlighting Popthatzit.com. She was contacted by the men who did the ear wax extraction video she loved and hope to have them as callers on the show sometime soon.

• During the premiere episode Rosie interviewed Lenny who ran the NYC marathon without training. Turns out Lenny has not walked since that interview and he has, in fact, fractured both tibias and is now in a wheelchair from not training for the 26 mile race.

• Rosie spoke to Tony Award winning Ann Reinking who narrated In My Hands, the documentary about the connective tissue disorder Marfan Syndrome. Anne's 19 year old son is afflicted with the disease. Rosie called the documentary "beautiful" and talked to Anne about her son's story as well as about dancing with the legendary Bob Fosse. For more information about Marfan Syndrome go to http://www.marfan.org/. Listen and watch a segment from today's show HERE!

• Rosie shared stories of her teens Chelsea and Parker dating and then took callers who also shared their struggles with teen dating. She gave one caller "tons of free stuff" including some Rachael Ray cookware.

• Rosie spoke about how she still has yet to fully recover from seeing the film Precious last Friday. She encouraged her listeners to listen to director Lee Daniel's interview on NPR yesterday. Click HERE to listen!

• Rosie announced that they will be having a "Record of the Month" and that this month's spotlighted record is Ellipse by Imogen Heap. She thoroughly loved the album and she also loved Imogen's youtube channel of her recording the album. Click HERE to purchase a copy!

• Rosie played the song Brother Trucker by James Taylor for a trucker who called in. She also gave the caller a bunch of free stuff including a movie poster from A League of Their Own, spyware software for his phone, and a snuggie.

• She gave a caller suffering from lung cancer Suzanne Somer's new book Breakthrough: Eight Steps To Wellness. Rosie spoke to Suzanne during the test shows and they will be playing that interview on Friday, November 20th. Mark your calendars!

• Google Pete did a bit entitled "This Day In History" in which he highlighted significant events in our history that happened today.

• Google Pete also updated the listeners on the latest information on the shooting at Ft. Hood as authorities search for more information on the shooter.

• Rosie closed the show and reminded listeners that on tomorrow's show they will celebrating Veteran's Day and dedicating the two hours to those that serve in our military.

    Hey - wanted you to know that I was the caller on this show with the lung cancer - some days I suffer from it, and some days I just live with it - this has been a rough week, but I thought you might like to know I had a treatment yesterday and I was telling one of the nurses about talking to Rosie and that I couldn't wait for the book to come- the nurse took the time to walk me out -when we got out of the building she said that she really wanted me read what Suzanne wrote because she was telling the truth about my kind of cancer. Made me feel hopeful. Peace and love and you are doing great on the recaps.
