With Longhorn Gene at The Great American Tribute (getting mileage of this 20 year old dress designed by my brother Nick...as you'll see, I am wearing it, again, a year later!)
Last year at the Marriott Rivercenter Hotel, a wonderful event took place: The Great American Tribute..honoring HEROES from the US Army. The event was Emceed by Bill Curtis from A & E. It was the brainchild of Lt. Col. Rene Brown. This man, by the way, until recently, was the head of the #1 Recruiting Battalion in the US! I am very grateful to him for he took me under his wing, as a fan of SURVIVOR and brought me into the presence of the true Survivors, our soldiers. Longhorn Gene was also a big part of making this event possible. Longhorn Gene I met when we Co-Judged a Dancing With the Stars type event here w/Mario Lopez.
Now, Lonhorn Gene is the Host of "Longhorn Live," a one hour radio show (previously on The Ticket 760am) where, once in a while, I will co-host to interview Longhorn "Celebrity" fans, such as Dennis Quaid, whom I interviewed several months ago.
