Come On Get Happy
March 7, 2011
David Cassidy was my teen heart throb. I was in love with the Six-million dollar man too, but really David was it for me. I sang "I Think I Love You" almost as many times as my kids have listened to Green Day's "American Idiot" CD. Yes, how the times have changed. Growing up, Friday nights had the best TV line up with The Partridge Family and The Brady Bunch. Sometimes an episode of a Bobby Sherman special would round things up. Donny and Marie were on Thursday nights.
It was at a Premier Radio "Live from the Emmys" event that I found out I would be meeting my teen love. David Cassidy was on the list of celebs to be interviewed, and I could hardly wait. Unfortunately, David was really not in "the mood" on this day, but he showed up anyway on the arm of a pushy publicist. He had no desire to be at our measly New York City radio booth, let alone be interviewed, and pictures were out of the question. I was crushed; totally disappointed. And he wasn't even nominated for an Emmy; he was a B lister invited to come to the broadcast. All my childhood memories have since been deleted. Bobby Sherman, on the other hand, was charming, charismatic and sang "Julie, Julie, Julie Do You Love Me?" to me. Score, my new favorite teen heart-throb is now Bobby Sherman.
Interestingly David Cassidy's ex-wife Kay Lenz was also making the rounds, and she was an Emmy nominee for a guest slot on a TV drama. Her interview was sweet, smart and professional. She was a pro and stayed for pictures. Loved her, and no one mentioned the guy she used to be married to. There was no need as "She" seemed to be doing just fine.

She might be finding her place of employment to have a double-standard when it comes to women in the workplace.
Ann Daly, PhD lists these top unwritten rules for women in the workplace:
- Men generally will get the benefit of the doubt. Men generally get hired on their promise and women on their demonstrated experience. Men are usually taken at their word, while women get challenged more.
- As a woman, you won't get sufficient feedback. According to the research, your male boss may not feel comfortable delivering feedback. Directly asking him about progress is needed.
- A working mother's commitment is assumed to be ambivalent.
- Actually, it is personal. It's who you know, not what you know, that gets you promoted.
- Men are bred for self-confidence.
- Women are rendered invisible until they demonstrate otherwise.
- Women don't take charge, they take care.
- Women are different. Make no mistake, "different" never means "equal."
- Women make great worker-bees, but not visionary leaders. Ann Daly PhD's new book "Do Over! How Women are Reinventing Their Lives." on shelves soon.
