ZaP2IT ON THE SCENE: SUMMER PRESS TOUR 2010
'The Nate Berkus Show': Nate Berkus previews his interview with Elizabeth Edwards
Nate Berkus announced Friday (July 30) that he had landed an exclusive interview with Elizabeth Edwards for his new talk show, "The Nate Berkus Show."
It will appear during the show's September 13 premiere week. And we happened to be talking to the man who made a name as "The Oprah Winfrey Show's" design expert when the news broke.
"I had the best time," Berkus tells Zap2it. "We sat for hours talking. We did cover a lot of stuff. She was very, very honest with me, very open. I was in her home."
Edwards has gone through several very public ordeals. She is currently fighting breast cancer. And she separated from her husband, the former U.S. senator and Democratic vice-presidential nominee, John Edwards, after he admitted to having an extramarital affair and fathering his mistress' child.
"Elizabeth has been all over the news," says Berkus. "I wanted to go down and talk to her about how she's renewing, how she's reclaiming her life and her own identity, not her identity that has been in the press, not what she's been through, what she's doing with everything she has learned to start a new chapter for her."
Berkus tell us that fans will walk away from his interview with Edwards with an admiration for her resilience.
"I have always had a strong connection to women who are defining their lives, who are declaring who they are, who are going through things and coming out on the other side," he says. "Maybe a bit bruised an tattered, but still hopeful, still inspiring. And Elizabeth is one of those people."
