(43-114) Heartthrobs

Number 22 of my "100 MORE Random Things About Me" list was, "I've never been an Oprah fan; but I've actually started recording her show."  Well, a couple of weeks ago Dawn told me that Oprah was having a "Sound Of Music" cast reunion, so I DVR'd it. I thought that I'd watch the one episode and Oprah and I would part company; but when I saw the promo for Oprah's interview with Portia De Rossi, I decided totape that as well.  The interview was very interesting but it was the promo for the next day's show that made me add Oprah to my daily DVR schedule.  Oprah was going to be interviewing Ricky Martin and there was NO WAY that I was going to miss it.  I LOVE Ricky Martin; and I have since his days as long haired, Miguel on "General Hospital."  I had never been a fan of long haired men, but Ricky with long hair, made me drool.  I thought he was a hottie for sure, but what REALLY sold me on him, was when he performed "Maria" on "GH."  Ricky and Oprah had a wonderful interview and at the end, Ricky performed his new song with Joss Stone, "The Best Thing About Me Is You;" and it was delightful!!

Now time being limited, I don't watch Oprah everyday, although I continue to DVR it; and the other day I watched Oprah's Heart Throb episode and there he was; one of my very first celebrity crushes; Shaun Cassidy.  I was a big, (yes,) HUGE; Shaun fan back in the day.  So much so that I almost included "That's Rock 'N' Roll" on my play list a few weeks ago.  Well let me tell you, Shaun was so adorable in his interview with Oprah, that I could actually have a little crush on him all over again.  Shaun was very kind and humble, and funny.  He put some weight on; so instead of being this skinny teen, he's a hunky man.  He seems to be happily married and he's a committed dad; and even though he hasn't performed in about 30 years; I thought that he sounded great, when he performed a medley of his hits. 

Peter Frampton closed the show, and even though he was never one of my heart throbs, I've always enjoyed "Show Me The Way" and "Baby I Love Your Way;" and he didn't disappoint. I wouldn't have
recognized Peter Frampton if I tripped over him; but his live performance was as good as anything that he'd ever recorded.

I'm going to continue to record this final year of Oprah; and I'm sure that I'll have a lot more to share with you, if the shows continue to be as informative and entertaining as the ones I've seen thus far.
Till next time.

I don't ever get to see Oprah! ... however, am a BIG FAN of Martha Beck. She's a life-coach (world-renowned), best-selling author and columnist for O! The Magazine. She is insightful, smart & funny!! I strongly recommend catching her...or especically catching her column or one of her books. (I finally got to recommend something to you!!)
