I'm in Denial

Posted: Updated:

Yes. I am. I am in denial. I never imagined it would come to this--OK, actually, I did. I knew it was a matter of time. I knew that sooner or later the news would be confirmed. I knew it! I just didn't want to believe it. I chose to pretend it was a rumor, a bad rumor. But it's not a rumor and I must now face reality. I'm telling you folks, this is the end of an era.

After spending the last four years at 3tv, I am sad to announce that one of my absolute favorite people in the world is leaving. He is one of the funniest guys I've ever met; he's a talented reporter, a great friend and all around cool person! I am sad to say that my good friend Antwan Lewis is leaving us! He's moving to Chicago to report for WGN News. There's no doubt in my mind that Antwan will be fantastic at his new job and it puts him closer to a true love him and I share...NEW YORK CITY!

Over the years we've shared a lot of great times! Some of my favorite include a trip we took to Flagstaff where we spent time with good pals Javier Soto and photographer Nolan Tornquist and his lovely wife, Kim. We had so much fun! Then there was my birthday party last year! That was sooo much fun! Then there's all the funny times we've spent at work! After all, if our viewers only knew what it's like behind the scenes and what it takes to put tv on the air!! And believe me folks, Antwan certainly makes it interesting!

I am going to miss him a lot! So please help me congratulate Antwan on his new job!!!! Write and tell me your favorite Antwan moment so that I can send your comments to him before he leaves. I am sure he will greatly appreaciate your thoughts!

Antwan, you know I love ya! You are my big brother, always there for a good laugh, a good hug and good times! Thank you for being such a good friend to me!

I wish you lots of luck! Say 'HI' to Oprah! And after Chicago, I'm sure we'll see you at the Network!

Con mucho cariño tu amiga,
