It's time for another installment of viewer emails.
Tuesday night, I wore a white collared maternity shirt. It's after Easter, right? So I thought I could get away with wearing the shirt---apparently not.
Barbie, I know you are anxious and excited about your new addition. Just a little piece of advice: white would probably be the least best color for you at this point. You are obviously dealing with an enlargement issue since you are 8 1/2 months pregnant. It just makes you look larger, that's all. One solid color (not white) would be better, don't you think? Just trying to be helpful. Signed, Bobbie Self
(Not only is white NOT the best color for me to wear, but I'm covering up the map again!)
Barbie, you need to get a pointer or longer arms. You are covering up Natchez on the state map. Signed F.Lovett
For those of you who read the blog, I've shared a television secret with you: television cameras make everyone look 10-15 pounds heavier than normal. Most people who have never seen themselves on tv don't realize the harsh reality. So this week, I've received several emails and phone calls from viewers asking this question:
Barbie, I know you have been asked this question a number of times, but I must ask when is the third baby due, and are you and William having twins? I have been with you through both your children but this came by surprise. Signed, Peggy Adams
Barbie, When is the new baby due? I think this is number 3 since I''ve been here. Looks like more than one. Right or wrong? Signed, Marge
Barbie, my husband and I watch you faithfully each night. You're really getting big so I'm hoping you are carrying twins instead of just one. By the way, can you say hello tonight on the 6pm news to my husband and I? Signed, Eloise & Bobby Hood
The next time someone asks me if I'm having twins, I'm thinking about really shocking their socks off and saying something like, "Haven't you heard? I'm have quintuplets!" as I smile.....
