During her appearance, Rita discussed her relationship with her husband, Tom, who she’s been married to for over thirty years.

She also revealed after her breast cancer diagnosis years ago that she wrote a song called “Throw Me A Party,” and it’s based on the two things she would want him to do if she were to pass before him.

“If something happens and I should go before you, I just want you to know there’s a couple things that I want,” she explained.

“One is that I want you to be super sad for a really long time…like, I will haunt you,” she joked.

“The second was that I wanted a party! I wanted to have a celebration, and I wanted to have a lot of singing and dancing and people telling stories, and to feel like that was being celebrated. And so, the song came out of that.”

You, online friends, also need to be thanked because your prayers and optimism were felt deeply. And, so thankful for the blessings God has bestowed on me, then and now. One year ago on March 29, I was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, a street, that as a child, I’d walk on an read all the names of the stars I admired, never believing one day my name would be on one of those stars.”

“And one year ago today, I released my fourth album, Halfway to Home. Every day I get to make music is a gift. So much has happened musically in that one year. So much goodness. All of this would not be possible without good health. So, today, March 29, I am celebrating the beauty of this life, the blessings God has given , and my continued good health, even now as a COVID 19 survivor.
