The Story of Debbie Phillips’ Braces, Starring Gloria Vanderbilt…

30 Jul

Debbie Phillips, the generous, inspiring and very fun dame who founded Women on Fire, has a marvelous story from her own life about her embarrassment over some new braces, an interview with Gloria Vanderbilt (yes, that would be the designer jeans lady and Anderson Cooper’s Mom) and the lessons learned therein.  It’s a great story.

It’s also a terrific glimpse at two remarkable women and gives you an idea of the mutual support and power of Debbie’s organization.  I actually got so into the story that I proceeded to watch the entire TV show where Anderson Cooper tells the story of his mother’s life, which is pretty astounding in and of itself.

You can find the story here (both of them, actually), on Debbie’s site.  Enjoy!
