Behind the Scenes of a T.V.Anchor

Throughout the years I have gotten a lot of comments from people about my appearance. Usually, it's about my hair and it's not really a compliment. It's more of a "Oh, your hair looks like a bowl or how much hairspray DO you use?"

Unfortunately, I don't have someone here at the station putting on my make-up and fixing my hair everyday, so I appreciate the feedback~ even when it's a little strange. I just had to share a letter I got today from a viewer. I got some bad news this morning and was a little down in the dumps when I showed up to work. Then, I saw I had a letter. How exciting!

Dear Jen,
You are a very talented girl and I watch you often. (Isn't that sweet? )
I love your new hair style and it is such an improvement over the straight hair that made your face and neck resemble a broom handle.
Happy Rails,
Carroll

My new nickname at the station is Swiffer! I hope this brightened up your day! We laughed so hard we started crying!

Thanks to Photographer Gil McIntire for snapping these shots of my hair for the out-of-towners-Too funny! What a day!

LOL! I like the straight hair in the picture of your header. I think we need a side by side comparison of the current look. For the out of towners like myself that is. :)

Girl, that is just too funny! By the way, I've never thought you look like a broom handle!

Maria said...

The curls are nice too. I really do like the shorter hair too. Oh, and like Gina, I don't get the broom handle. LOL!

A broom handle? Really?! Well if you are to be compared to a broom handle, then that must be one super fancy, designer broom! Hairstyles come and go, talent and brains are forever!

Thanks! It's just funny the comments we get sometimes. I had to share this one. He was probably honestly trying to say something nice. Who knows!

I like your hair straight and curly. Either way you are the cutest broom handle I have seen :)
