You are so very right about the guts it takes to be on stage..you can hide a variety of sins (i.e., "body flaws", lack of poise and grace, etc) when you are clad in lovely suits, cocktail dresses and evening gowns...but to be able to walk across a stage, on live television and before a huge living crowd of people, in a swimsuit and carry that off with poise and confidence....well, there really isn't anything you cannot do after that! A true fan- you go girl! Mom
