The Conversation: Wish Jane Fonda & Sarah Silverman Were MY Girlfriends
I recently got the chance to see a sneak preview of the new Lifetime Television talk show, "The Conversation," hosted by Amanda de Cadenet and I have to say, I so wanted to be sitting on the couch with her, chatting up some of the boldest, funniest and smartest women on the planet. From Jane Fonda to Sarah Silverman to Gwyneth Paltrow, de Cadenet is one of the first talk show hosts that I've ever watched who asks the questions everyone is thinking about but is afraid to ask.
From sex, to divorce, to masturbation (yes, you heard it right), no topic is off limits on "The Conversation," and what you'll find refreshing is that you'll definitely learn something new about her superstar guests. One of my favorite interviews was with Jane Fonda, who shares why, despite having it all, decided to end her relationship with Ted Turner and start her life over again. Fonda seems more comfortable in her own skin than ever before and her experiences have made her wiser, stronger and more independent than ever.
Produced by Demi Moore, "The Conversation" gives A list stars a comfort level with Cadenet that enables them to share their insecurities in a safe and comforting environment. While you might not see Barbara Walter's worthy tears, what you will find is refreshing honesty and candor from all the guests about some of the most painful times in their lives - from Gwenyth Paltrow losing her father to Jane Fonda confronting the prospect of ending her marriage and starting all over again.
Airing Thursday nights at 11pm/10c on Lifetime, "The Conversation" has the potential to foster water cooler conversation with women who never expected their favorite stars to let their guard down and confide their innermost secrets with their new best girlfriend, Amanda de Cadenet.
So here's my question for you. If given the chance to hang out with Amanda on the couch, which celebrity would you ilke to meet and what question would you be dying to ask one of your favorite stars? And here's one more - would you ever tackle some of the topics Amanda is covering on "The Conversation" or are they totally off limits in your book? If you've read "Fifty Shades of Grey," I'm thinking you at least have attempted to loosen up.
