My Interview with Joey McIntyre of New Kids On The Block

Watch Return of the Mac on Pop TV April 12!

Here is a link to my interview with Joey McIntyre of New Kids on the Block in The Huffington Post.  Last week, I had the privilege of meeting him when he came to Chicago to promote his new TV show, Return of the Mac.  Return of the Mac premieres on Pop TV on Wednesday, April 12 at 8:30 pm CST.  In the interview, we discuss the new show, the loyalty of New Kids fans, working with January Jones, and his dream celebrity guest stars.

Meeting Joey was awesome.  And, yes, I was one of millions of girls who wanted to marry him in 1989.  Later on, I’ll post more pictures from the special day.  But for now I thought I should post the interview.  More later on what it was like meeting the blue-eyed New Kid.


Hi, I have five illnesses--bipolar disorder, myasthenia gravis (neuromuscular autoimmune disease), endometriosis, asthma, and psoriasis. Most of the organs in my body are affected. I'm dedicated to being a stylist for sick women. As someone who has experienced changes in my appearance due to my 12 meds (including Prednisone), I know how hard it can be when your face and body change overnight. (In fact, because of treatment, between 2008 to 2010, I went from a size 0 to a size 10. While I lost the weight, there are permanent changes in my face and body, which I've grown to appreciate.) My blog will also help women deal with other issues like surviving chronic pain and fatigue. Healthy people can also use this blog as a window into what life with illness is like. Let this website be a place where we can draw strength from each other despite our illnesses and find solutions to our everyday challenges!
