Meredith Vieira Prefers Sleep, Not Botox

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.”

    Of course she had. They all have had. It seems that talking about botox is the best way to look like they have never done plastic surgeries! Who didn’t talk about botox yet? Courtney Cox, Kim Kardashian, Jennifer Aniston…. all addressed the question as if they think that people are too idiots not to know that by the meantime they had nose jobs, boob jobs, chin jobs…Botox is NOTHING compares to those. Give me a break!

    I like Meredith, and I really don’t think she has had any recent botox (I think it’s just that mag photo is excessively retouched). I do think she looks awfully thin, though.She’s admitted to having an eating disorder when she was young and never has developed a healthy relationship with food. I hate hearing about these extended “detoxes”…anyway, she seems like a great person. I could certainly understand if she quit The Today Show – what a grueling schedule!

    How refreshing that she focuses on what is good in her marriage instead of what’s unfair. I need to practice more gratitude. Life does rob us all and it’s easy to get bitter and cynical.

    Um, watch her on HD tv, she has not had botox:). She was, however, airbrushed for this cover.

    au naturel Says:

    I echo livvyloo’s observation – and I don’t have HDTV. But I have seen Meredith without makeup for a day without makeup theme on NBC. She has lots of wrinkles, which I admire and respect her for self-acceptance and values for more than the superficial. In fact, she says when she’s not working she goes without makeup.

    It’s a shame too many women in the media don’t have Meredith’s comfort in her skin.
