Personal Quote:

Before I was a mom I used to think that parents who worried about their kids watching MTV were just clueless. Now that I'm a mom, I see what the fuss was all about! I don't want (my kids) exposed to drug use, violence or inappropriate sexual behavior. Am I Tipper Gore or what?


Graduated from Ossining High School in 1977 and NYU in 1981. See more »
