To color code or not to color code your books? With apologies to Hamlet, that is my question. After dismissing the practice as “moronic” during my Instagram live tour with the lovely @ariannahuff (I feel the variety of covers and colors presents a certain kind of beauty) my daughter Ellie took issue with my assessment, arguing that it’s more aesthetically pleasing to color code, particularly if you live in a small space. She proceeded to quote @mariekondo claiming it “sparks joy.” Knowing full well there are much more pressing issues, I thought I’d ask you, dear followers, what you think. Because sometimes for your own sanity, it’s nice to debate inconsequential things, just because. ❤️ Okay, take it away! 😊 📚 (don’t say anything unkind about Ellie or I will come and get you! Blood is thicker than water lol)

Hey hey happy birthday to one hell of a gal @therealmariskahargitay ! This wonder woman is also a vocal advocate for sexual and domestic assault survivors.

#TheBigStory: In a 5-4 vote, the Supreme Court has reinstated President Trump’s ban against transgender individuals enlisting and serving in the military. This means the Pentagon can keep transgender people from enlisting and in some cases, can even kick them out while it works its way through the lower courts. Here’s a quick refresher: President Trump announced on Twitter in 2017 that the US would no longer “accept or allow” transgender Americans to serve in the military citing “tremendous medical costs and disruption.” Six months later, then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis implemented a memorandum that implies 1. If you’re a trans person you cannot enlist in the military 2. If you are already in the military and in the closet and come out as transgender, you will be discharged. 3. If you’re already an out transgender individual in the military, you won’t be discharged but trans advocates say the new guidelines could lead to harassment or discrimination. There are currently over 10,000 transgender individuals on active duty or in reserve forces that could be affected by this decision, which will likely make its way to the Supreme Court. “Today’s decision thrusts this administration’s discriminatory agenda onto a military that clearly doesn’t want it, and does so at the expense of transgender people’s careers and service.” according to the @humanrightscampaign in a statement earlier today. Interesting first person piece in my bio. #news #trans #transrights #supremecourt

⭐️Happy 56th @johnmolner !!!! From one of our first dates in 2012 (you look like a baby!) to today, I feel so lucky you came into my life! To quote the silver fox himself Mr. Kenny Rogers: “It’s better every day, you kissed my tears away, as long as it’s okay(hey it rhymes) I’ll stay with you...through the years.” (Key change) This has officially been one of the cheesiest posts of all time! 🤪🌈 But seriously, thank you for giving me my chapter 2. ❤️ Happy Birthday!!🎉🎊🎂🎈And yes, ladies, I’m a cougar.

My home state of Virginia has the chance to put the ERA over the finish line as the 38th (and final) state needed to ratify the Equal Rights Amendment. A little refresher: The Equal Rights Amendment is a proposed amendment to the US Constitution stating that civil rights may not be denied on the basis of one’s sex. If ratified, it could impact everything from Title IX to equal pay. It passed the House and Senate on 1972 but never got enough state legislatures to pass it as required. (You can read the whole history of the ERA including reasons why some have opposed it if you Wikipedia it!) Meanwhile, I love this video that @lilibernard6 and her daughter Zion made! Thanks for saying I was a good thing to come out of Virginia. I’m in very good company! 😊😊 Next month, the Virginia House will vote on whether to approve the ERA..fingers crossed! #era #equalrightsamendment #virginia

It’s a triple bday today: @muhammadali @michelleobama and wait for it... @bettymwhite ! What can I say I adore her. I’ve interviewed her several times but thought I’d share this conversation we had at the Central Park Zoo in 2010 when she was 89. I asked her if she was afraid of dying one day and her secret to a long and happy life. Here’s what she said. Happy bday you saucy minx. I ❤️ you. Always have. Always will. 🥰🎂#happybirthday #happybirthdaybetty #bettywhite #icon

Happy Birthday to the greatest of all time, @muhammadali who would be celebrating his 77th birthday today. I had the privilege of visiting him and his extraordinary wife Lonnie at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center back in 2006. He’d been suffering from Parkinson’s for over 20 years but he was as lively and funny as ever. The Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center offers a wide range of recreational therapies, educational workshops and support groups as well as the best clinical care, research, and rehabilitation for people dealing with Parkinson’s disease. (A disease by the way, that my father dealt with for the last decade of his life.) If you’d like to see the whole piece - head over to my IGTV to learn more about the work Muhammad did alongside @realmikejfox. 🌟♥️ #tbt #muhammadali #happybirthday #wemissyou

According to the @usdagov, more than 50 million Americans regularly don’t have enough to eat while up to 40% of the country’s food supply is wasted. Today’s #WednesdayWoman is working to change that. Maria Rose Belding developed @meansdatabase (while still in high school!) after spending years volunteering in her local food pantry and seeing food go to waste. MEANS is an online database that allows food pantries and kitchens to connect with businesses & corporations that have extra food in order to feed the hungry. MEANS has evolved into a nonprofit run largely by high school and college students that has helped redistribute more than 1.8 million pounds of food since 2015 and has served more than 69 million meals. MEANS has spread to 42 states (including the District of Columbia) in just two years and represents more than 3,000 partner agencies. To learn more about MEANS and the work Maria is doing, check out www.meansdatabase.com 🌟Thank you MRB for being such an awesome role model and helping so many people in need.♥️#wednesdaywomen #wcw #gogirl #seeher

More and more companies are taking a stand on important social issues. The folks at P&G, (who I’ve gotten to know well over the past year and have been proud to collaborate with) have been on the forefront of taking a stand on issues like race and gender inequality. This latest effort by @gillette takes on toxic masculinity, and it’s spurred a lot of conversation and some controversy. I’d love to hear what you all think!

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D. New York) announced tonight that she has launched an exploratory committee to begin raising money for a 2020 presidential campaign. “I’m going to run for president of the United States, because as a young mom I am gonna fight for other people’s kids as hard as I fight for my own, which is why I believe health care is a right and not a privilege.” Gillibrand was appointed to the Senate in 2009, succeeding Hillary Clinton when Clinton became secretary of state. She is the second senator to enter the democratic primary, following Elizabeth Warren. Comment away! #breakingnews #thebigstory #election #kirstengillibrand #politics

I asked people to share how the government shutdown is impacting their lives and the lives of people they know. I’m reposting their stories on my Instagram stories. We are currently on Day 25 of the shutdown - making this the longest government shutdown in history. Over 800,000 federal employees are without pay. If you have any information about ways to help those affected - please let me know. ♥️ #governmentshutdown

Ten years ago the miracle on the Hudson took place as Sully Sullenberger’s incredible grace under pressure landed his disabled US Airways jet safely, saving the lives of all 155 people on board.  I had the privilege of interviewing him about the incident and he told me he could tell that Canada geese had flown into the engines by the “burnt bird smell.” He then described what happened next. (swipe ⬅️ for the second part of his answer!) Sully, meeting and getting to know you has been such an honor. Those passengers and the entire country continue to be in your debt. I will never forget when you told me: “One way of looking at this might be that for 42 years, I’ve been making small, regular deposits in this bank of experience, education and training And on January 15th, the balance was sufficient so that I could make a very large withdrawal.” What do you guys remember from that day? ✈️ Go to my IG TV to watch the full piece. #truehero #miracleonthehudson #captainsully

Saw the amazing @kerrywashington in @americansonplay on Broadway today and she was incredible! The play, written by writer-turned lawyer-turned playwright @christopherdemosbrown is a harrowing and anxiety producing look at what it means to be black in America through the eyes of an interracial couple worried about the fate of their 18 year old son. It is so powerful and Kerry is on stage 99% of the time. I don’t know how she does it! Bravo you! And while it’s very tense and difficult to watch, I’m so happy these critically important issues are being explored through theatre, movies and television. (Between this remarkable play and @bealestreet -I think that’s the handle!-two crushing, but intensely thought provoking experiences, I had quite a weekend!) #broadway PS a legend was in the audience with us...check out my stories if you want to know who! 😊

Haven’t serenaded you all for awhile so thought I’d play a little rendition of “Ashokan Farewell” which I mentioned in my earlier post about Jay. It’s such a beautiful, evocative and somewhat melancholy tune, and if you want to listen to it in all it’s glory I urge you to watch it performed by Jay Unger and Molly Mason...it’s achingly beautiful. ❤️ Now I just need someone to accompany me on 🎻 and 🎸 and maybe a banjo too! Let’s start an instaband! 😊👍🏼 PS I didn’t color my hair magenta. The weird filter I chose made it match my sweater! 🤓

PARENTAL WARNING! (Now that I’ve gotten your attention...) #fbf to my “randy” conversation with @sirrodstewart from 2012 when he told me the inspiration for his hit song “Maggie May.” At another point during the interview, when he told me he and his wife had a new baby, I must have looked surprised. He then told me, ”There’s still lead in the old pencil, Kate.” PS: Happy 74th bday you old scalawag! PPS: I don’t remember what was bleeped out but do remember it made the audience (and me) blush! 😳#foreveryoung #rodstewart #friday #flashbackfriday

This is so upsetting. A video of Dick Arnold and Rob McBride, two men from Menindee, Australia, holding the carcasses of 100-year-old Murray cod that had died in the Darling River in New South Wales, has gone viral on Facebook, gaining more than 4.4 million views. Hundreds of thousands of fish, including the critically endangered Murray cod, were found dead along a stretch of the river this week. This is the second mass death of fish in the Darling River in two months. An estimated 10,000 fish died in December in an incident local officials said was due to the drought. Officials say the mass death this week was caused by a toxic algae bloom, however, Arnold, McBride and other residents say the environmental disaster was man-made and due to the government’s mismanagement of water flows into the system.

#BreakingNews: Michael Cohen, President Trump’s former personal lawyer has agreed to testify before the House Oversight Committee on Feburary 7th to give “a full and credible account” of his work for President Trump. It’s the first major move by the newly controlled Democratic House to deliver on their pledge to pursue investigations of the President and his inner circle. House Oversight Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings stated: “He’ll have the chance to tell his side of the story, and we’ll have a chance to question him. The American people deserve that.” In a statement, Mr. Cohen said “In furtherance of my commitment to cooperate and provide the American people with answers, I have accepted the invitation by Chairman Elijah Cummings to appear publicly on February 7th. I look forward to having the privilege of being afforded a platform with which to give a full and credible account of the events which have transpired.” #breakingnews #michaelcohen #potus #trump

“If the soft breeze fans your cheek, it shall be my breath; or the cool air cools your throbbing temples, it shall be my spirit passing by.” - From a letter by Sullivan Ballou to his wife Sarah in 1861. He was 32 and died one week later in the first battle of Bull Run. This was one of Jay’s favorite letters, read to “Ashokan Farewell”(such a beautiful song) in Ken Burn’s Civil War series. Happy Birthday Jay. ❤️❤️❤️ #foreverinourhearts And thank you friends for your sweet, caring comments. ❤️

Since I happen to be at @ces this Wednesday, I wanted to honor an incredibly smart, capable and generous woman (and dear friend of mine) @ariannahuff - who is revolutionizing how we think about technology, sleep, success, and health. At 68, she’s another example of women staying active, vibrant and visible, contributing to the conversation - this one about how to live healthier, happier and more fulfilling lives. In 2016, Arianna left her role as President and Editor in Chief of the @huffpost to start @thrive - a media organization focused on health and wellness. Arianna was inspired to start Thrive Global after she fell and injured herself due to exhaustion and lack of sleep. Thrive Global’s mission is to end the stress and burnout epidemic by offering companies and individuals sustainable, science-based solutions to enhance both well-being and performance. With Thrive Global, Arianna and her team are committed to accelerating the cultural shift that allows people to reclaim their lives and move from merely surviving to thriving. Arianna is an inspiration to me and she is doing such important research and work! Check out https://thriveglobal.com/ to learn more about the work Arianna is doing! #thrive #wcw #inspiration #health #wellness #wednesdaywomen

#OnThisDay in 1978, Harvey Milk became the first openly gay elected official in the US after he was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Harvey Milk made significant strides while serving on the Board of Supervisors for gay rights and equality - during a time when there was a lot of homophobic rhetoric and discrimination against the gay community. Sadly, on November 27th, 1978, just 11 months after he was elected, Milk was assassinated by a former colleague, Dan White. Harvey Milk is remembered for his positivity, nonviolent approach to change and his significant accomplishments for the gay community. #harveymilk #gayrights #gayhistory #onthisday #history #tuesday

#BreakingNews: Tennessee @governorbillhaslam has ordered an early release for Cyntoia Brown In 2004, 16 year old Cyntoia shot and killed a man who had solicited sex from her while she was working as a teenage prostitute. Brown claims she did this because she was scared to return empty-handed to her pimp. Brown’s supporters have said she acted in self-defense when she killed a man who paid to have sex with her, describing her as a victim of human trafficking who was preyed upon when she was homeless. Since Brown’s conviction, juvenile sentencing guidelines in Tennessee have been amended, and if she were to be tried today, she would have been viewed as a child sex slave and victim instead of a criminal. In a statement, Governor Haslam said “This is a tragic and complex case. Cyntoia committed by her own admission, a horrific crime at the age of 16. Yet, imposing a life sentence on a juvenile that would require her to serve at least 51 years before even being eligible for parole consideration is too harsh, especially in light of the extraordinary steps Ms. Brown has taken to rebuild her life. Transformation should be accompanied by hope. So, I am commuting Ms. Brown’s sentence, subject to certain conditions.” She will be released on parole on August 7th after serving 15 years in prison. #cyntoiabrown #news #tennessee #billhaslam #justice #prisonreform

This is Emma Grace Findley and her mother Kari Rhinehart. Emma Grace died in 2014 when she was 13 of glioblastoma, a form of brain cancer. Kari and Emma Grace were featured in an article in the @nytimes over the holidays and I wanted to learn more about them and their story. They are not alone. Since 2008, there have been at least 58 cases of childhood cancer, ranging from Ewing’s sarcoma (a rare bone cancer) to lymphocytic leukemia (at least 15 cases have been reported) in Johnson County, Indiana. There is real concern that this high incidence of childhood cancers can be linked to an old factory that discharged industrial wastewater into a municipal sewer that released harmful chemicals like trichloroethylene (TCE) into the air. TCE, by the way, is a chemical used by as many as four-fifths of the nation's 65,000 dry cleaners as well as about 2,200 factories and other facilities. The Trump administration has indefinitely postponed the proposed bans on risky uses of TCE, leaving as many as 178,000 workers potentially exposed. Dozens of concerned parents have called for a federal investigation of the Environmental Protection Agency by it’s office of the Inspector General into why Johnson County's toxic levels of TCE persists. I will be talking to Kari Rhinehart and Stacie Davidson, two moms who are taking action and want to make sure children across the country are protected. Tune in at 7:30 EST tonight for our conversation on Instagram LIVE. I look forward to hearing your questions and comments. Join me for this important story! #interview #instagramlive

If you haven’t heard, earlier this week Jazmine Barnes, an innocent 7-year-old was shot and killed by an unidentified light skinned male (according to eyewitnesses) when she was sitting in the car with her mother near a Houston @Walmart. Jazmine was shot in the head and her mother was wounded and is in the hospital. The murderer is still at large. Jazmine loved playing dress up and wearing her mom’s heels. She dreamed of being a teacher. @ShaunKing is working with Jazmine’s family and has raised a $75,000 reward for any information that can help find the man who did this. @CNN spoke with Jazmine’s mother, and her understandable anguish is just gut wrenching. (you can watch the interview in full in the link in my bio.) Please reshare and follow @shaunking for more updates and email him at shaunking@gmail.com if you have any information. Such a senseless murder and so infuriating. I hope social media can help find the perpetrator. 💔#justiceforjazminebarnes

Today is a historic day on Capitol Hill! The new freshman class of Congress (the most diverse yet!) will be sworn in at noon. (@cspan will be live streaming the ceremony) No other Congress has ever looked like this - a record-breaking number of women, including the first Muslim and Native American and openly LGBTQ representatives, will be sworn in today. The party breakdown in the new House of Representatives will be 235 Democrats and 199 Republicans and in the Senate, there will be 53 Republicans and 47 Democrats. Other notable highlights: 🔹The youngest woman ever elected to Congress will be sworn in today, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York who is 29 years old 🔹Republican Marsha Blackburn will be the first female senator from Tennessee 🔹Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith made history by becoming the first woman elected to Congress from Mississippi 🔹Democrat Krysten Sinema became the first female senator elected to represent Arizona & is also the first openly bisexual senator 🔹The state of Texas is sending its first Latina representatives to Congress with Veronica Escobar and Sylvia Garcia. 🔹Ayanna Pressley will be the first black congresswoman to represent Massachusettes 🔹Jahana Hayes will be the first black congresswoman from Connecticut #congress #swearinginceremony #firstday #history #washingtondc #capitolhill #politics #goladies

In honor of tomorrow’s swearing-in ceremony, I wanted to highlight @laurenaunderwood for today’s #WednesdayWomen. Lauren is the congresswoman-elect from Illinois’ 14th district, and at 32 years old will be one of the youngest members of Congress. She defeated four-term incumbent Randy Hultgren, who only two years earlier won his race by a 19 point margin. Lauren is a registered nurse and served as an advisor to the Department of Health and Human Services under the Obama Administration. Lauren was inspired to run for Congress after attending one of Randy Hultgren’s town halls where he promised he would only support a repeal of Obamacare if it included protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Hultgren later voted for a repeal bill that DID NOT include these protections. As a nurse and a woman with a pre-existing heart condition, Underwood made the decision to run against Hultgren, and despite predictions she would lose, won by a 5 point margin. Before the midterms, women had never held more than 84 of the 435 seats in the House. With 36 new women winning House seats, come January 3rd, that number has increased to 118! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 43 are women of color, and at least 3 are LGBTQ. We still need more women in office, but hey, it’s a start and I’m thrilled for this incoming class! 💪🏼💥Hopefully they will GET s*$# DONE! #firstday #wednesdaywomen #womengetitdone #congresswoman #politics #dc #wcw #nursesaremyheroes

If you want to reflect on the past year, look at the moments you’ve preserved on your phone.and you’ll probably be amazed at everything that’s happened in 365 days! The people you’ve loved, laughed with and cried with. (I know this is ending with a preposition but the other way sounded too weirdly formal) Some of the places you’ve traveled or the life changing events you’ve experienced closer to home. The milestones you’ve observed, the challenges you’ve faced and may continue to face in the new year. Here are some of the pictures you appreciate from me in 2018. Every one tells a story on its own of course, but together form a tapestry of a year that had everything-sorrow, joy, generosity, anger, frustration, courage, patriotism and love. Here’s to making new memories in the new year and while it’s been a trying, exhausting 12 months on so many levels, take a moment to appreciate the good things that happened in 2018. I’m grateful for all of you. ❤️❤️❤️#happynewyear #2018bestnine 🍾🎉🎊

Senator Elizabeth Warren (D. MASSACHUSETTS) announced she is entering the 2020 race for president. In an email to supporters this morning, Senator Warren explained she was forming an exploratory committee which allows her to raise money and fill key staff positions before a formal kickoff of her presidential bid. Senator Warren has been an outspoken critic of President Trump as well as an advocate for stricter regulations on big banks and Wall Street. What are your thoughts on this announcement?

2018 was quite the year. We witnessed natural disasters in the form of wildfires, tsunamis, and hurricanes. We saw mass shootings in schools and places of worship, new waves of the “Me Too” movement, attacks on journalism and free speech, and the deaths of prominent world leaders. We also saw examples of hope and activism rise up in times of fear, division and intolerance. Here’s a look at 2018 as told by the stories that defined the year. #2018 #yearinstories #ohwhatayear #topstories

I know this is long, but....here goes! What an incredible treat to celebrate the 60th wedding anniversary of my amazing in-laws Herb and Paula Molner. They met in December of 1957 at an engagement brunch for mutual friends. Herby was immediately smitten and said Paula (a senior at @northwesternu where Herb had graduated a few years before) was clearly “a cut above.” Not to mention brilliant and beautiful! Paula found Herby “too friendly” and “a bit presumptuous” and as they say in modern day parlance was just not that into him. But he persisted and when she didn’t call him back, he showed up at her sorority house unannounced , took her to coffee and started to wear her down. On their first official date in January, over duck a l’orange at a French cafe on Lincoln Park West, they discussed what they would name their children, so I guess Herby was pretty convincing! Paula says she was attracted to his ease, spontaneity and joy. “He’s overstated, I’m understated,” she told me. (I’m getting a little verklempt writing this!) By March they were engaged and the following December they were married. I asked them the secret to a long and happy marriage, and they both said it was important to know how to be together and how to be independent. To appreciate what you share and what you don’t. As Herb told me: one plus one equals three. You, your partner and the things you love together. As I said in a poem I wrote for the occasion, “They found each other without losing themselves.” They are two of the most interesting people I know...both love art, travel, ideas and a remarkable collection of friends they’ve met along the way. As I said at the end of my little poem,”We do love John madly, fake news that is not, but with Herby and Paula we hit the jackpot!” Ellie, Carrie and I feel so lucky to know all the Molners, but especially these two extraordinary people who immediately made us feel not just comfortable, not just welcome, but truly loved. Congratulations you two crazy ki

On Wednesday morning, President Trump and Mrs. Trump visited American troops in Iraq. This is the first time in Mr. Trump's nearly two years as President that he's gone abroad to visit members of the military. This secret trip came at a less than ideal time - the government is currently shut down, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has resigned, and less than a week ago, Mr. Trump announced plans to withdraw all American troops from Syria and half from Afghanistan. Mr. Trump addressed the troops in Iraq saying "We're no longer the suckers, folks. Our presence in Syria was not open-ended, and it was never intended to be permanent. Eight years ago, we went there for three months, and we never left. We're spread out all over the world, we're in countries that most people have never even heard about and frankly, it's ridiculous."

For today’s #WednesdayWomen, I wanted you all to know more about the woman who started @thistlefarms - the company I featured for one of the #giftsthatgiveback series! Reverend @beccastevens is an author, speaker, priest, social entrepreneur, founder, and president of @thistlefarms. She opened Thistle Farms first recovery home in 1997. Her vision was to create a community where women could heal from years of trafficking, addiction, prostitution and the violence of life on the streets. She quickly realized providing a safe space for women to heal wasn’t enough - these women needed a way to become financially self sufficient. So Becca and the residents started making candles and body balms in a church kitchen to help the survivors gain work experience and a steady income. Twenty one years later, @thistlefarms has evolved into a full fledged business that employs over 1,300 women worldwide. Their housing program has space for 210 women to heal and 82% of survivors in their program remain sober. How awesome is Becca? To learn more about @thistlefarms work, or to get some of their delicious body balms + candles go to www.thistlefarms.org 😊♥️ #wcw #wednesday #amazingwomen

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg underwent surgery in New York today to have two cancerous nodules removed from her left lung. There is no evidence of any remaining disease elsewhere in her body. Wishing her a speedy recovery! #breakingnews #ruthbaderginsburg 🔹UPDATE: Justice Ginsburg voted from her hospital bed to refuse to let the government enforce President Trump’s proposed restriction on asylum. The court voted 5-4 to leave a lower court ruling in place that blocks enforcement of the crackdown.

Only a handful of the staff members knew that the president was visiting, but word spread quickly. By the time he was headed for the door, a crowd had gathered at a nearby nursing station. The group of doctors, residents and nurses cheered for Obama before busting into an impromptu rendition of “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” (Photos courtesy of the Personal Office of President Barack Obama)

Let’s celebrate the one and only Penny Marshall who died yesterday at the age of 75. When you think about it, Penny helped shape our views re: working women as the hilarious Laverne DeFazio on Laverne & Shirley. (“Give us any chance we’ll take it, give us any rule we’ll break it...we’re gonna make our dreams come true...”) She was not only an icon on the small screen, but was also a trailblazer for women directors. The first film she directed was Jumpin’ Jack Flash starring Whoopi Goldberg - and she went on to direct classics like Big, Awakenings (which became the second ever Best Picture nominee directed by a woman!!) Riding in Cars with Boys, and A League of Their Own. Thank you for all the laughs, Penny. And for all your incredible work. And for breaking barriers. We’ll miss you.♥️#restinpeace #pennymarshall #nothinsgonnaturnusbacknow

Dr. Leana is also the author of the book “When Doctors Don’t Listen: How to Avoid Misdiagnoses and Unnecessary Tests” which is all about teaching patients how to advocate for themselves. 🔹@mikiesherrill is the newly elected congresswoman for New Jersey’s 11th District.

My beautiful friend, Jenifer Estess died 15 years ago today of ALS. She was 40 years old. She was talented, vibrant, hilarious and an all around spectacular human being. She was the founder of @nakedangelsnyc a Manhattan theatre company that included legendary performers like @sarahjessicaparker @benstiller @marissatomei_id among others. Jenifer was told she had ALS when she was 35 and to “max out her credit cards.” That was unacceptable, so Jenifer, along with her extraordinary sisters, Valerie and Meredith started @projectals to support critical research for ALS (which will benefit patients with a whole host of neurological diseases as well.) 93 million dollars later, @projectals continues to work tirelessly to find new drugs that will slow the progress of this horrific and cruel disease and one day (hopefully🙏🏻) cure it altogether. I was honored to write the forward of Valerie’s book #talesfromthebed and am grateful to call the Estess sisters my friends. Today we celebrated Jenifer with her favorite #barneygreengrass delicacies and wished she were there. I miss her and will honor her by supporting the great work of @projectals If you’re interested in learning more about the exciting science this organization is funding you can visit projectals.org ❤️❤️❤️ #projectals #weloveyoujenifer

They also participated in a documentary I executive produced about gun violence called Under the Gun on @epix which illuminated the history of gun violence in this country and tells the personal stories of those who have lost loved ones in this most senseless and violent way. The Bardens’ strength and courage inspire me every day. Please hold them and all the victims of gun violence In your hearts. 💙 #sandyhook #restinpeace #remembertheirnames and yes!

“I blame myself for the conduct which has brought me here today, and it was my own weakness and a blind loyalty to this man that led me to choose a path of darkness over light. Time and time again I felt it was my duty to cover up his dirty deeds rather than to listen to my own inner voice and my moral compass.” Michael Cohen, former lawyer for President Trump was just sentenced to three years in prison for pleading guilty to crimes committed in New York, and two months for lying to Congress. He was also asked to pay nearly $2 million in fines, forfeitures and restitution. 🔹Cohen pleaded guilty to lying to Congress about the duration of negotiations to build a Trump Tower in Moscow, as well as the extent to which Trump was involved. 🔹Cohen also pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations, tax evasion and making false statements to a financial institution. 🔹Cohen also admitted in court he had arranged payments “for the principal purpose of influencing the election” for President Trump in 2016. #breakingnews #michaelcohen #thebigstory

Not that many 27 year olds can say they were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, but today’s #WednesdayWoman can!! #VERYIMPRESSIVE. @amandangocnguyen, the founder of the non profit organization @risenow.us, is working tirelessly to pass a Sexual Assault Survivor Bill Of Rights in all fifty states - 14 states have passed it so far. A survivor of sexual assault herself, she is fighting to protect other victims across the country by making sure rape kits - which contain critical evidence - are not destroyed and that rape survivors have access to their medical information and are not required to pay for evidence collection. (Not even convicted criminals have to do that.) Amanda was raped in 2013 when she was an undergraduate at Harvard but chose not to press charges upon learning that there was a 15 year statute of limitations for prosecuting the crime in Massachusetts. But after she discovered the state destroyed rape kits after six months, she lobbied the Massachusetts legislature to change the law - and she succeeded. “It’s called secondary trauma when a criminal justice system is meant to protect survivors but instead it hurts them and re-traumatizes them. A lot of people tell survivors to go to the criminal justice system..but I was met with a Kafkaesque system that was a labyrinth for me to figure out why my evidence was being destroyed and why that deadline even existed in the first place.” She calls this a civil rights issue because “other crimes aren’t treated this way. For instance, murder - a class A felony, just like rape - the evidence is never destroyed. That’s how you solve cold cases in murders.” Amanda, thank you for turning your trauma into transformative change. You inspire me. (And I discovered you on Instagram - so cool!)

Happy #monday everyone! I’m back in NYC and getting into the groove again (albeit I’m moving a bit slowly thanks to the jet lag 🤪)Today’s #mondaymotivation comes from Grace Hopper, a pioneer computer scientist and Navy Admiral, basically an all-around badass! 😊And now her name graces (get it?) one of the colleges (or buildings/dormitories) at Yale, It used to be known as Calhoun College, named after Yale alumnus and former Vice President, John C. Calhoun. Calhoun was the most “strident articulator” of slavery as a positive good - for both slave holders and slaves. After an outcry on campus- spearheaded by then student, now Yale alum @daijmoore Calhoun College was officially renamed Grace Hopper College last year. And now Dasia is joining our team at KCM (Katie Couric Media-how original!) yay!

Day 12 of our India adventure brought us to another incredible series of caves, more ancient than #elloracaves in Aurangabad. This is cave #10 of the #ajantacaves and was made in...wait for it...200 BC! There are more than 30 caves here, chiseled from the massive basaltic rock and many contain paintings that are preserved and convey what life was like back in the day. Blue paint made from lapis, white from limestone, red from ocre, green from plants, black from soot—you get the picture. This cave houses a massive stupa, the symbol used before Buddha was deified. In 1819, an English officer named John Smith, who was leading a hunting expedition witnessed a tiger entering a small opening which led to the discovery of the caves. Built between 200 BC and the 5th century AD, it was thrilling walking through these caves. @johnmolner is completely making fun of me telling you all this so I will stop now. We ❤️’d India and the people of this transcendent country. I will put a few shots of the interior of the caves and some of the paintings and details on stories! Thanks for taking the journey with us!

I was covering the events in Charlottesville on August 11, 2017 when 32 year old Heather Heyer, a paralegal and civil rights activist was murdered after 21 year old James Alex Fields plowed into a crowd of peaceful protesters following the so called “Unite the Right” rally. Fields was found guilty on all charges including first degree murder and five counts of aggravated malicious wounding. He was also convicted of 30 federal hate crimes. He could be sentenced to twenty years to life in prison. This is the scene from my my #natgeo series #americainsideout on the raging debate over Confederate statues and iconography that shows what happened that terrible day. I am thinking about Heather’s mom, her friends and the Charlottesville community. #justiceforheather #thisiswhatelookslike #notveryfinepeople #charlottesville

Our final stop on our India adventure was Aurangabad where we visited the #elloracaves and #ajanthacaves which are truly extraordinary. This is Cave 16 or #kailasha cave which was carved by Hindus out of Basaltic volcanic rock during the 8th and 9th centuries. It took 200 years, 7-10 generations and the removal of more than 200,000 TONS of rock! The plans were handed down from generation to generation. This video DOES NOT do the place justice. It is a @unesco site but it deserves to be a wonder of the world! 🌍 The detail and precision of the carvings are wonderful. I will put some close-ups in my stories as well as some shots of a Buddhist Temple and Monastery, built in the 7th and 8th century, respectively. Those caves inspired the Hindus and both faiths inspired the Jains. Do you know about that religion? (For another post!) You cannot believe that people with just hammers, chisels and their imaginations, created this magnificent place 1300 years ago. 🇮🇳🙏🏻 #bucketlist PS John jee is an excellent travel companion! 😊❤️ (whoa I feel like I just spotted Marilyn Monroe’s face in this video...anyone else see it? 😏)

James A. Baker, former Secretary of State and White House Chief Of Staff for President George H.W. Bush gave a beautiful eulogy for his close friend today in Houston, Texas. I loved James’s personal stories about his former boss and friend - one of my favorite moments was when he said, “George always had a very effective way of letting me know a discussion was over. He would say, ‘Baker, if you’re so smart, why am I the president and you’re not?!’” 📹: @abcnews 💙 #rip #potus #remembering41 #bush #foodforthought #eulogyvalues

I’m a bit late but it’s still #Wednesday which means that it’s time to highlight another incredible woman for #WednesdayWomen! Meet Gina Clayton-Johnson, founder and executive director of @essie4justice , a non-profit organization of women with incarcerated loved ones who are taking on the injustices created by mass incarceration. The Essie Justice Group brings women together to heal, build collective power, and drive social change. In her first year as a law student at Harvard, a loved one of Gina’s was arrested and sentenced to 20 years in prison. She saw a lack of organizations or groups that addressed criminal justice with a focus on women with incarcerated loved ones, so she started Essie Justice Group (named after her grandmother) in 2014. Together with her team, the Essie Justice Project is organizing women with incarcerated loved ones together to heal and create positive change in a broken system. Today, 2.3 million people are in jail, and incarceration has increased by over 500% in the past forty years. An overlooked effect of mass incarceration is that today an astounding one in four women and nearly one in two Black women has a family member in prison. The sense of loss is painful, acute, and often borne in silence, leading to illness, severe depression, and even suicide. The work Gina is doing is so important - to learn more visit https://essiejusticegroup.org

Such a beautiful, touching speech and service. George W. Bush tearfully concludes his eulogy to his father with these final words; “Through our tears, let us know the blessings of knowing and loving you, a great and noble man, the best father a son or daughter could have...Dad is hugging Robin, and holding Mom’s hand again.” 📹: @washingtonpost #georgehwbush #remembering41 #restinpeace

I thought this moment was so touching. Former Senate majority leader Bob Dole, who is 95, rose to give a final salute and pay his respects to former President George H.W. Bush. Both Dole and Bush fought as young men in World War II (Dole was just 21 and Bush was 20!) and Dole competed against Bush not once but twice for the Republican presidential nomination. ❤️💙

Varanasi is one of the most intense places I’ve ever visited. Massive sensory overload in what’s been called “the city of learning and burning.” We visited the #Ganges river first to watch the sun rise and see the flurry of activity on the street (even at 5:45 am!) We returned to the #ganges for a ceremony of Thanksgiving with a sea of humanity on the banks of the river. It’s called the city of light (vs Paris-lightS) and is one of the holiest places in the Hindu religion. People were bathing there to wash away their sins...some were just taking a dip and others were lathering up, while still others were doing their laundry and hitting their clothes against rocks in the river (ergo the term stone washed) Millions of people come here every year including many elderly people who wish to die in this sacred place and be cremated on the holiest ghats (or stairs) to achieve salvation. We saw at least thirty people being cremated the night we visited. When I asked Ajay our guide if he felt it was intrusive and invasive to have people watching from the river he told me death is a celebration and to bear witness is honoring Hinduism. If a woman predeceases her husband, she is dressed in the same sari she was married in. After we observed the cremations, we each lit a small candle surrounded by roses 🌹 in a little cup and said a prayer for people who had died before placing them in the water. I said a prayer for Jay, my sister Emily and my parents. I was so moved that John (yes that’s his first name) told me afterwards he said a prayer for the same people I did. It was beautiful to see the candles all floating on the river, like little stars on a dark, watery sky. The service was remarkable too. Getting home in a rickshaw was harrowing and very, very (!) loud with all the honking cars, motor scooters, pedestrians and cows in the street. I can’t believe there aren’t more accidents here! I will share some of our adventures in my stories tomorrow (so many pictures!) and realiz

Happy #monday everyone! (From India! 🇮🇳) This is one of my new favorite quotes. It’s really about taking risks, not fearing failure and how wanting to be perfect often holds us back. So...what are you waiting for? As they say in the @nike commercial...Just do it. 💜 #mondaymotivation. PS. Tell me about a time you went for it. You all inspire me every day. 😊

“Mission complete.” President George H.W. Bush’s service dog, Sully, named after airline pilot Sully Sullenberger, traveled with Bush’s casket on his flight to DC. Sully went to work with Bush this summer after former First Lady Barbara Bush passed away. Sully can perform a two page list of commands that include answering the phone and fetching important items. He will now go on to serve other veterans at Walter Reed National Military Center. “As much as our family is going to miss this dog, we’re comforted to know he’ll bring the same joy to his new home, Walter Reed, that he brought to 41.” Former President George W. Bush wrote. ❤️💙🇺🇸#remembering41 #restinpeace #sully

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah !! Hanukkah is the Festival of Lights, commemorating and celebrating the story of how the Maccabees defeated a tyrant and reclaimed the Temple in Jerusalem. There was only enough oil to light one candle in the Temple, but miraculously, the oil lasted eight days and nights. Hanukkah symbolizes hope - and serves as a reminder that even in dark times, the light can always be found and kept alive. Chag Sameach everyone! 💙🌟#happyhanukkah #festivaloflights #adamsandler

This is Hawa Mahal, or Palace of Winds, a five story tall building with 365 windows where women from the royal court would hang out, gossip and check out the action on the street below. It was built in 1799 but along with other structures, the reigning maharaja painted the town pink to honor the Prince of Wales (Prince Albert Edward, the eldest son of Queen Victoria) when he visited the city in 1876. The King of Jaipur took it a step further and made it illegal for buildings in the old city to be painted any other color than “Jaipur pink” which is really more of a salmon or terra cotta color. The city is an experience in sensory overload...I tried to capture it in stories but you really have to experience it for yourselves! We are now on to Varanasi! Happy Sunday to all of you from India 🇮🇳!!!! ❤️❤️❤️ #nofilterpermolner #matchymatchy

This is such a funny photo. President Bush surprised Mrs. Bush and me when she was giving me a tour of the White House for the @todayshow back in 1992. I started peppering him with questions and my impromptu interview went on for nearly twenty minutes. That’s when Mrs. Bush started checking her watch. By then, Marlin Fitzwater, the WH press secretary had come in and I said “Look, Marlin’s pulling out what’s left of his hair!” Everyone laughed and it cut the tension. President Bush later signed this picture which I have hanging on my wall with a lovely note from him. I will never forget him or this moment. RIP to both of you. ❤️

I had the privilege of meeting President Bush on a number of occasions and interviewing him as well. He was one of the kindest, most elegant and unpretentious people I have ever met. What a life well lived. A life of honor, integrity and purpose in a time when there was deep respect for the presidency no matter where you stood on the issues. Thank you President Bush for your service and patriotism. #Repost @georgewbush

Just hanging out in this low-key room in the City Palace in Jaipur! The City Palace was built between 1729 to 1732 and has a series of magnificent rooms, this one being the least ornate. (JK!) I’ve been on a self-imposed (well actually Molner-imposed) social media break but I couldn’t take it anymore so I’m going to give you all a little taste of our time in Jaipur on stories today! Known as the Pink City (when it literally painted the town pink when the Prince of Wales visited in 1876) it’s beautiful and vibrant! When candles are lit in this room the reflection looks like a million little stars! The 20 year old King of Jaipur allows tourists to visit parts of the palace (couldn’t see his bedroom!) We’re off to a Hindu temple and then a cooking class (good luck to us) and then I’m going to check out the gem factory. Hope Molner brings his wallet! 😁 Happy Saturday! #jaipur #bucketlist PS sorry for al the !!!!!!s. I’m feeling very enthusiastic!!!!!! I ❤️🇮🇳

A 7.0 magnitude earthquake hit Anchorage, Alaska at 8:29 AM local time. The epicenter of the quake was just north of Anchorage which is home to more than 294,000 people. The extent of the damage the quake caused has not been confirmed but there has been major road damage and fear that the after shocks might trigger a tsunami. “It was terrifying. I mean, we’ve had magnitude fives, sixes - we deal with earthquakes all the time and this was the strongest I’ve ever felt and the most terrifying of my life.” said Samuel Shea, the Science Operations Officer at the National Weather Service in Anchorage. This footage is terrifying...I’m thinking of everyone affected, and hoping that the worst is over. ❤️ 📹: @cnn #anchorage #alaska #earthquake

Since I’m currently in India, I wanted to do a #tbt today in honor of Jackie Kennedy Onassis’s visit to India! She traveled to India in March of 1962 on a goodwill trip at the urging of the US Ambassador to India to help improve relations between the two countries. She was accompanied by her sister, Princess Lee Radziwill Of Poland. Jackie & Lee traveled to New Delhi, Fatehpur, Sikri, the Taj Mahal in Agra (where I currently am!! 😄) Benares, Udaipur, and Jaipur. When asked how her trip had been going, Jackie said “It’s been a dream.” and I couldn’t agree with her more! Enjoy these iconic images! (Although I’m not looking nearly as chic as Jackie and Lee 😅🤪) #india #thursday #tbt #travel #jackiekennedy #kennedyobsession

When I first laid eyes on the Taj Mahal, I was so moved. It took my breath away. (I was surprised by my reaction!) Rudyard Kipling described it as “the embodiment of all things pure” while the poet Tagore called it “a teardrop on the cheek of eternity.” Emperor Shah Jahan built it to honor his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died giving birth to their 14th (!) child in 1631. The entire complex took 22 years to complete and 20,000 people worked on it using semi translucent white marble carved with flowers and inlaid with thousands of semi-precious stones. (Thank you @lonelyplanet😊) Shah Jahan, who supposedly turned gray overnight he was so distraught, said the Taj Mahal made “the sun and the moon shed tears from their eyes.” He had a sad end to his life (see previous post) but is now buried next to his wife (thanks to his daughter and not that awful son!) Meanwhile, wives one and two are buried nearby in two separate domes. Guess he wasn’t that into them! 😳 Meanwhile, I found out that kissing in public is frowned upon AFTER we took this photo, so I apologize! ( I’m really not into PDA, but what can I say? I told you I was moved!) I will post some more of our TWO visits here but don’t want to overwhelm you all! Meanwhile as I write this, I’m having tea in Jaipur at the most amazing place! I love 🇮🇳! 😘 #bucketlist

I may be far away in India, but that doesn’t mean I’ve forgotten about #WednesdayWomen! Today, I’m shining a light on the beautiful and brilliant @mamacaxx. At the age of 14, Cax was diagnosed with bone and lung cancer and was given just three weeks to live. She went on to beat her cancer, but lost her right leg as a result. Now, Cax uses her platform to bring attention to the need for inclusivity in fashion, body positivity, and to dismantle the perceived image society has of what people with disabilities look like. She owns who she is by incorporating bold colors and bright patterns on her prosthesis. “When I first started blogging, a lot of women amputees were messaging me about how they’d never seen an amputee on social media or anywhere else showing their prosthetics. I think it’s so important to show people who have physical disabilities because there are a lot of people out there who have physical disabilities who buy products and who never see themselves represented in any way, shape, or form.” I had the pleasure of speaking with Cax at the @glblctzn summit earlier this year and I was so impressed by her uplifting positivity!! Keep shining Cax!🤩❤️🤩 #wednesday #wcw #bodypositive #inspiration

Hi everyone from Agra! We’ve had an amazing day here so far and we haven’t even been to the Taj Mahal yet! This was taken at Agra Fort, a huge, expansive place that’s considered one of the finest Mughal forts in all of India. It goes on forever! Construction began in 1565 by emperor Akbar (he’s got a crazy family tree...that’s a whole other story!) and his grandson, Shah Jahan, who built the Taj Mahal added to it using his favorite white marble. (His power hungry son Aurangzeb ended up imprisoning his dad for eight years AFTER killing his three older brothers...nice guy huh? 😳) Aurangzeb ruled India for 49 years but I hope he had a guilty conscience because he sounds like a real jerk! I loved this place! I’m going to give you more info in stories but I love this photo of Molner and felt it was definitely insta-worthy! Off to the the Taj Mahal! More later in this space! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️🇮🇳🙏🏻 PS @lynseyaddario what do you think??? 😊

Molner and I are heading out for our annual travel adventure. I look a little slobby for air travel but it’s an overnight trip and I will mostly be zzzzzzzz-ing!!!! I’ve never traveled to where we’re going and I’m so excited! Any guesses? (To my friends who know you can’t guess!) Molner has already told me I remind him of Susie Essman’s character in Curb so we’re off to a great start! 😆 (Molner is in one of the duffles...)

Took my in-laws to see the extraordinary Elaine May in @waverlygallerybway and we were blown away. Elaine (a national treasure) Joan Allen (one of my favorites ❤️) @lucasshedges (who is crushing it) Michael Cera (who I’ve loved since Juno) and David Croner (from Billions among other things) were all spectacular. It’s about growing old, senility and responsibility and although it doesn’t sounds like a “feel good” show, it’s both harrowing and hilarious. Playwright Kenneth Lonergan has such a gift for creating dialogue that’s so believable, so true, you feel as if you’re eves dropping on an actual conversation. Elaine was psyched to meet a fellow Chicagoan and delighted his name was Herb, like her late husband in the show. This is my first theatre review on Instagram! So grateful to live in NYC where great theatre is a cab ride away! #I❤️NY #broadwaybound PS how cute is Herby? PPS let me know if you’ve seen a play you’ve loved recently! 😊
