30TH ANNIVERSARY OF MY FIRST WORKOUT VIDEO

Posted on April 24, 2012, in My Blog, with 22 Comments

Today is the 30th anniversary of the release of first Jane Fonda Workout Video. It feels like yesterday and 100 years ago. I’m sure you’ve had that same feeling. Still fresh yet so much water under the bridge. I am so different. The world of Fitness is so different.

Let me begin: It was 1980 or ‘81, I think. Stuart Karl came to me to ask me to make a video of the exercise routine that appeared in my first Jane Fonda Workout book.…

I just received this email:


“Dear Friends,
Levon is in the final stages of his battle with cancer. Please send your prayers and love to him as he makes his way through this part of his journey.

Thank you fans and music lovers who have made his life so filled with joy and celebration… he has loved nothing more than to play, to fill the room up with music, lay down the back beat, and make the people dance!

ME AND NANCY REAGAN

Posted on April 12, 2012, in My Blog, with 10 Comments

Word is out about the film, “The Butler”. It is a beautiful and true story about a black man who grew up in the Jim Crow South and went to work as a much beloved butler in the White House through many administrations, both Republican and Democratic. Lee Daniels, the Academy Award nominated director of “Precious,” and producer of “Monsters Ball” will direct.…

THE NEWSROOM

NEWSROOM!!!!

Okay, word is out so I can talk about this and show the trailer. I am sooooo beyond excited. Working on an Aaron Sorkin project for HBO with actors like these, OMG! And the part is so much fun. I can’t give too much away but think, if you can, of a combo of Ted Turner and Rupert Murdock, but a woman-me.…

NEW PRIME TIME

Posted on March 23, 2012, in My Blog, with 25 Comments

WHEW!

I haven’t blogged since the Oscars! There are all sorts of reasons why and I cannot give them all to you quite yet. This is partly because I have had some life changing experiences that I still need to process. The Vietnamese Buddhist Thich Nhat Hanh wrote, “Our own lives are the instruments with which we experiment with truth.” Yes!…

PRIME TIME & OSCARS

Posted on February 29, 2012, in My Blog, with 19 Comments

I’ve been deep into production on my new Prime Time workout DVD, and you haven’t been hearing from me as regularly. I am also working on some additional new content that I cant quite talk about yet, but I’m really excited about it. Unfortunately it hasn’t left me with much time to blog.

Sunday night were the Oscars, Richard and I attended the Vanity Fair dinner party and sat with many interesting people to watch the show.…

Having dinner with Eve Ensler, at Brasserie Bofinger where the waiter gave us both a rose.

FRIENDSHIP AND OPTIMISM

Posted on February 20, 2012, in My Blog, with 9 Comments

Eve Ensler just came over to visit me. I haven’t seen her in many months. Too many months, because being with Eve opens my heart and lifts my spirit. I have known Eve since the end of the 1990s when our mutual friend, Pat Mitchell, brought her to Ted’s flagship ranch in Montana where I was having a women’s weekend sleepover—7 or 8 women friends, most involved with CNN in some capacity.…
