IHGB Podcast #105: Pretty Woman

Hey everyone!

It’s the moment some of you have been waiting for. I know this because you’ve emailed and messaged me to ask, “When is your mother going to be on the podcast again?”

Well, when she heard about the love series, sponsored by my new book It’s a Love Story, (on sale now!), she immediately wanted to talk about her favorite movie of all time: Pretty Woman.

Now because of the subject matter concerning Vivian’s line of work, my mother uses a word that rhymes with LOOKER or BOOKER a record twelve times. At one point, she takes it a step further and makes the word a verb.

Because I have no idea if the Apple Corporation will flag Mama’s use of that word as “explicit content” on iTunes, I decided it was best to just bleep her out. This is a family show, and I’d like to keep it that way. 

Aside from vernacular that describes “ladies of the night,” Pretty Woman taught us that it’s okay to wear wigs and that it’s cool to carry dental floss in your purse. We learned how to stomp a divot and that escargot are slippery little suckers.

But most importantly, we learned not to judge a book by its cover. Because even hookers can have a heart of gold.

Your mother is the epitome of a true Southern woman. She is so delightful and her accent is lovely to listen to. Both of you together are fun to listen to, especially when discussing one of the most iconic movies of the 80s!!! I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve seen Pretty Woman…it’s just that good.


I agree, Norma! It’s a classic!


OMG! I have never heard one of the podcasts with your mom, but by the 5:15 mark I wanted her to adopt me!! She is so cute 🙂


She’s incredibly funny, that’s for sure! And she has no clue!


I just have to meet your mom someday. It’s my favorite movie and I’ve seen it so many times! Even own the DVD
