A long time coming for today’s podcast guest #139, as Vienna Girardi joins me for the first time to talk about her time on the show, her post-show life, and the tragic loss of her twin girls in the summer of 2017. I don’t know how many of you even know or remember the story, and Vienna knew I was going to bring it up, but I did not expect her to spend almost 15 minutes talking about it. Truly a heartbreaking story to hear her re-live that and I hope that at least one person out there who may have suffered through something similar takes the time to listen today and realizes that you can make it through, no matter how difficult it may seem. Vienna hasn’t been on TV for almost 10 years now, so I don’t know how many of you even remember her, but she didn’t get the greatest edit on the show. Whatever you remember, I’m guessing your opinion will change after hearing her on the podcast today. Just nothing like what you saw on TV. You’ll hear a side to her I’m guessing you probably didn’t think was there. As always, if you’d like to respond to the interview, please include Vienna’s Twitter handle (@ViennaGirardi) in your replies so she can see them. I can’t thank her enough for coming on today and sharing such a tough story with everyone. Hope you enjoy…
