The More The Merrier!

I’m cautiously optimistic about the next episode of “Our America,” Lisa Ling’s docu-series on the OWN network, in which she discusses families/couplings who are non-monogamous. I’m pretty psyched anytime that the mainstream media acknowledges alternative sexualities at all, bonus points for when it acknowledges we are “normal.”  Polyamory or even just being monogam-ish are more common than you think. This preview teases Ling’s show as answering the question “How many is too many?”, which is presupposing something is wrong with non-monogamy and that it is possible for there to be “too many” partners in a polyamorous union.  Yet everyone who gets screen time in this preview seems happy with their personal decisions — and pretty “normal,” too. As American as apple pie, you might even say. “I Love You & You … & You” airs next week, Tuesday March 5 at 10/9c on OWN.  [Oprah.com]

Lisa Ling Opens Up About Her Miscarriage

“I felt more like a failure than I’d felt in a very long time. We actually [hadn't] been trying that long … I don’t know that I took it as seriously as I should have because it happened so fast. But then when I heard the doctor say there was no heartbeat it was like—bam—like a knife through the heart … I hope that women can get to a place where they can finally talk about it because it’s so great to find comfort in other people’s stories and experiences because it’s so common.”

Lisa Ling on “The View” discussing her miscarriage, which happened six months ago. I really admire when women in the public eye feel comfortable opening up about their personal tragedies. It’s very inspiring and I think a lot of women will be able to relate. Lisa even started the website Secret Society of Women where women can share their deepest, darkest secrets anonymously.

Update: As Suspected, Lisa Ling Had Nothing To Do With That Press Release

We thought this might be the case—Lisa Ling had no idea her agency sent out an email blast yesterday about speaking engagements for the fall. Here’s what she wrote us a little while ago:

Someone emailed me your blog—I am apoplectic and embarrassed by this. I NEVER even suggested that my agency put this out. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Thanks for the clarification, Lisa. And we hope you and your family are having a joyful reunion. Keep reading »

Lisa Ling Ready To Speak At Your College Campus

Lisa Ling’s speaking agency sure didn’t waste a second. Yesterday evening, not 24 hours after Lisa’s tearful reunion with her sister, Laura, one of the two journalists imprisoned in North Korea who Bill Clinton somehow managed to bring home, the email above popped into my inbox. I do a lot of programming at my college, and usually when I get a message about a speaker my gut response is, “Wow, that would be amazing.” But yesterday my reaction was more like, “Soon, much?”

Some Hope For Laura Ling And Euna Lee

Finally, some good news has come from North Korea about detained journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee. Despite being sentenced to 12 years of hard labor last month for illegally entering North Korea, the pair is currently staying at a guest house in the North Korean capital, Pyongyang. This update comes just days after Lisa Ling received a relieving phone call from her sister. According to political scientist Han Park, “North Korea’s move not to carry out the sentence suggests that it could release them through a dialogue with the United States and they could be set free at an early date, depending on the U.S. gesture.” Keeping my fingers crossed for their safe return!

Laura Ling Calls Sister Lisa From North Korean Labor Camp

In June, journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were sentenced to 12 years in a labor camp, after crossing into North Korea while working on a story for Current TV about the sad lives of the country’s female refugees. Hillary Clinton is hustling to try to get the two released, but so far things aren’t going very well. The only good news in the story is that Laura’s sister, Lisa Ling, who you probably remember from “The View,” got a call from her last night. “It was a tremendous relief to hear Laura’s voice. The silence has been just so terrifying and deafening,” Lisa told a radio station this morning. “She was very specific about the message she was communicating and she said, ‘Look, we violated North Korean law and we need our government to help us. We’re sorry about everything that happened, but now we need diplomacy.” Let’s hope it works. [AFP via Yahoo News] Keep reading »
