I have super supportive friends. In fact, I have super supportive friends who just happen to be supermodels. The super-est of them all is Cheryl Tiegs. Yes, THAT Cheryl Tiegs. The woman who is frequently described as the first American supermodel. She was the cover girl for Sports Illustrated and...

How to Baby Yourself on Mother's Day

(0) Comments | Posted May 10, 2015 | 3:05 PM

If you are a woman facing infertility... then today can be one "mother" of a holiday. My womb aches for you, because I've been there (by there, I mean I've been curled up in the fetal position, under the covers, waiting for Mother's Day to turn into night). Yes. I've...

An Open Letter to My Egg Donor

(6) Comments | Posted April 1, 2015 | 12:09 PM

I've always been a big believer in thank you notes -- not the ones you email or text, but the ones that include handwriting and postage. Now that I just had a baby, I estimate I owe close to 200 of them. I'm hoping to have them all done before...

D&G vs. IVF

I've interviewed Elton John a couple of times. The occasion? His annual Oscar viewing party. As a reporter here in Hollywood, you stand for hours on the red carpet, dressed to the nines trying to get soundbites for your report at 11. Elbow-to-elbow with your competitors, you are lucky if...

One Good Egg: The Perfect Match

(1) Comments | Posted June 18, 2014 | 4:33 PM

I'm someone who is always looking for signs. Signs to point me in the right direction. Without them, I would miss countless freeway exits and valet parking opportunities. But lately, I have been looking for the kind of signs that aren't plastered everywhere. You know, the ones that aren't as...

One Good Egg: Hunting for Eggs

You make a million choices a day while living in LA. It's only going to be 50 degrees outside... do you dig out the winter coat? Should you take the 405 or try your luck with Coldwater Canyon? Do you order the soy latte or the Chai Tea? Decisions. Decisions.

One Good Egg: How Do You Like Your Eggs?

(1) Comments | Posted May 19, 2014 | 11:23 AM

"How do you like your eggs?" is usually a question I am asked at my neighborhood Denny's by a waitress names Wanda. It's not the sort of question I expect to hear from my doctor. But then again, this isn't just any doctor. This is Dr. Hal Danzer, one of...

I've hatched plenty of plans over the years... but none of them have been as important as the one I am currently sitting on. You see, I'm ready to nest. I want to have a baby. My house is in order, I have a good job and a 6'5" fiancé....

I was out reporting in the field the other day, covering some sort of crime in the streets of Los Angeles, when a devoted viewer came up to say hello. After asking for an autograph and taking a "selfie," he turned to me and asked me if I have had...

45 Days Until 45: The 'BEFORE' I Do Anything Else -- DAY 40

(1) Comments | Posted January 28, 2014 | 12:20 PM

Before I did one more thing in my quest to look my best before my 45th birthday, I knew I would have to take a good, hard look at myself (and I don't mean from an introspective point of view). I needed more than a mental picture to size up...

Today I decided to be powerful. I began by having a stare down with my scale. For months, I've been afraid to face off against that little bitch. She just sits there in the bathroom, looking all intimidating. When I have been brave enough to step up... she'd flash one...

45 Days Until 45: Super SoulCycle Sunday, Day 42

This Sunday I decided to do something for my soul.

I turned to my spiritual side... by tuning into Oprah. If you haven't watched Super Soul Sunday, you should. Each week, the "Big O" sits down with the top thinkers, teachers and spiritual leaders to discuss life's big questions. Admittedly,...

45 Days Until 45: Overwhelmed by Admitting I Was Overweight

(0) Comments | Posted January 13, 2014 | 6:06 AM

I've been overwhelmed by how many people "weighed in" on my 45-day declaration to lose some weight before I turn 45. More than 7,000 read about it on Facebook, hundreds have commented and it appeared here on The Huffington Post (and that was just in the first 24 hours).

This will be a little-bitty blog about new ways to exercise and accessorize (and by the way, I'm much prefer accessorizing).

Like many of you, I woke up with a long list of things to do. Saturday morning. My once-a-month maid was coming over and I needed...

What One Wendy Has Learned From Peter Pan

(5) Comments | Posted January 28, 2013 | 1:21 PM

There seems to be more "lost boys" than usual flying around Los Angeles these days. All of the added drama could perhaps be blamed on the fact that the production of Peter Pan has landed at not just one -- but two -- iconic theaters. The animated classic is reeling...

'The Book of Mormon' as Seen Through the Eyes of an Oxy-Mormon

(15) Comments | Posted November 21, 2012 | 10:44 AM

As a self-proclaimed liberal Mormon (aka: oxy-Mormon) I knew I'd be entertained at the nine-time Tony winning "Book of Mormon." But I had no idea how much I'd be inspired -- and yes, even proud -- to call these often eccentric, odd-ball and devout people my own.
