Meredith Vieira Prefers Sleep, Not Botox
Meredith Vieira opens up about a variety of topics in the November issue of Ladies’ Home Journal, which hit newsstands yesterday (October 13).
Here’s what the 56-year-old Today show co-host had to share with the magazine:
On if she’ll leave the Today show when her contract is up in 2011: “I’ll know when it’s time to go, and I’m not afraid to go. If I were to leave the show at the end of next year because it’s time for me, I wouldn’t jump into another show.”
On if her colleagues think botox might be a good idea for her: “They’ve probably thought it, but nobody has said it. When I came back from vacation, some people said, “Did you have work done? They looked so relieved. I told them, “No, I slept.”
On her husband’s [Richard Cohen] struggle with multiple sclerosis: “I feel cheated sometimes. We used to run together and go on ski trips or go to the beach. Now it’s very hard for Richard to stand. But we’re very lucky in what we do have.”
How she recently lost 10 pounds: She met with a nutritionist, who put her on a 28 day detox diet of no sugar, wheat, gluten, alcohol or caffeine. She also began a slow-burn exercise regime with heavy weights to build muscle and burn calories. “I started feeling better. I want to look healthy, be strong and feel good about myself.”
