Arianna And Rita Wilson Talk Huff/Post 50 On 'Morning Joe' (VIDEO)

Posted: 10/03/11 10:50 AM ET

Arianna and Rita Wilson, the Editor-At-Large of the newly launched 'Huff/Post 50' stopped by the 'Morning Joe' studio to talk about the new site.

Arianna explained the inspiration for the project: "What gave me the idea was when Rita, at the age of 49, did 'Chicago' on Broadway. It had been a lifelong dream and finally she did it -- dancing, singing on Broadway. So the whole essence of that site and the reason why I wanted Rita to be the Editor-At-Large is that it's never too late to follow your dreams and celebrate aging."

Talking about her turn in the hit musical, Rita added: "It terrified me, but it was a great experience because it actually told me, if you do what you want to do, no matter what time you do it, if you challenge yourself and scare yourself, you're going to grow from the process and get something out of it."

Wilson also discussed the benefits of turning 50: "You know who you are. I think you stop caring what people think. You have a bit of wisdom, which is one of the good things about getting old. It's not your parents' 50."
