If for some reason you can’t place the beautiful face of Leeza Gibbons, you’re going to remember the voice. Leeza is one of the iconic voices of our time. She was a longtime correspondent for Entertainment Tonight and Extra, and had her own syndicated talk show. But it's her voice that has launched more radio hours than Casey Kasem or Dick Clark. Leeza is also an Emmy winner, a New York Times bestelling author, of Take 2: Your Guide to Creating Happy Endings and New Beginnings, and has just released Fierce Optimism: Seven Secrets for Playing Nice and Winning Big.Much to Donald Trump’s dismay, Leeza won his last season of The Celebrity Apprentice (where she raised a quarter of a million dollars for her charity, Leeza’s Care Connection), by being nice. We’re going to talk about that because Nice is the new black as far as we’re concerned. Leeza is on her whirlwind book tour and thankfully made time after guest hosting THE TALK over at CBS here in Los Angeles to race home to be with us. We couldn’t be more grateful, or bigger fans of this fiercely loving optimist.
