Whew! The Today Show appearance is over and I can go back to my life in the kitchen. But not before I share my female insecurities with you first! When I heard Beyonce was going to be on the Today Show the same day as my appearance, this put my insecurities over the edge. I don’t care if you’re Julia Roberts, any woman looks shabby next to this goddess! I had planned to wear a tight fitting “Juicy” cotton turtle neck under my apron for the cooking segment, when I realized that Beyonce would probably be gorgeous and half naked on the Plaza. So I set out to my local mall to find a more interesting, dare I say sexy, shirt for under my apron, (already an oxymoron for anything Beyonce) not so much to compete with the Goddess, but just so I could feel good. No less than 10 stores and blistered feet later, I ended up with a James Perse sleeve tight-fitting button down shirt in navy, open at the neck, but as soon as I put it on, I FELT great! I no longer cared that I would be in the same room as Beyonce, because something about this shirt made me feel confident and in touch with my own inner goddess (haha), even if I had a big ‘ol apron on top. In the end, Beyonce and I were in separate “green rooms,” although I did get a great view of the concert which was awe-inspiring. So goes my day at the Today Show with Beyonce! Back to the kitchen!
