A picture is worth 1000’s words…..Julies dream was to be Miss Jacksonville.She had incredible interview skills,outstanding talent….all that held her back was swimsuit….those days are long gone…..I worked with pageant contestants across the country,I have no doubt that the new “Julie” could have won it all.

So what now for her? She’s addressing congress this week…Im sure she will do the talk show circuit…..but one thing I believe is she still has the “Pageant Bug”.This was evident in her clothing for finale night,as well as the way she walked and spoke….

So Julie, if you read this,I want to encourage you to do the Mrs.America Pageant.Its not some cheesy pageant,several former Miss Florida’s have competed in the “Mrs” contests.The world is your stage and its time you heard those words that escaped you….

Julie Hadden- Biggest Looser

I haven’t commented on any of the previous slurs or comments that have been slung at me.  Heck, my “fifteen minutes” will be up soon enough and the masses will move on the the cast of Season 5.  But I do want to clarify for anyone who misunderstood my jokes about Nicole and her teeth.

Nicole is a sweetheart!  And I love her dearly.  We always got along so well on the set.  And what many people might not know is that Nicole is one of the funniest people I have ever met.  We laughed until our stomachs hurt so many days.  The ONLY reason I responded to her “injury” in a comedic way is because SHE did first.

She was a trooper about the whole incident with her teeth.  Had she been hurt or even if she had been upset about it at all I would have NEVER joked around at her expense.  So for anyone who didn’t understand that the entire cast was laughing WITH her not AT her…I wanted to clarify that.  And I put the blackend teeth in – in front of Nicole and she thought it was hilarious.

Nicole is a beautiful woman…with or WITHOUT her teeth.  And I am blessed just to know her and call her my friend.

Nicole, if you read this…I love ya girl!!  Theriously!

People around the country are tuning in to this seasons “Biggest Looser”,many are becoming inspired to get into shape and loose weight themselves,But when Jacksonville native, Julie Hadden entered the contest,she had no idea she would be a beacon of hope for her closest friends.

Julie and Tammie have been best friends forever…..literally,they were friends when atari video games were the rage,when “big curly hair” was hip,even when Micheal Jackson was a black man.(thats a long time ago)

Its no surprise they were drawn together,both have strong convictions in the church,they cherish family and friends,they both sang in church choirs,solos,groups,(and the occasional karoke at Bombay Bicycle Club,shhhhh).They both loved the the Miss Amercia Pageant system,they performed and judged many pageants together.They both had larger than life personalities,either one of them could have been a stand up comic,they also shared another factor,weight,it was a constant battle for both of them.

While Julie battled weight to compete in pageant,Tammie was right there with her.Now that Julie is on the right road – eating healthy and working out,Tammie has been inspired to do the same right along with her best friend.

Tammie shows off her progress.

The fun side of thier friendship is evident on Tammies Myspace page,she keeps everyone updated on her and Julies progress and has 2 south park cartoon versions of themselves.

Having known each girl in highschool,if some one had asked me back then where the girls would be 10 years from now? It would be easy to answer,Julie would be the next Oprah and have a tv talk show and Tammie would either be on American Idol or a fashion editor of Vogue.

Julie’s personality lights up everyroom she walks in,and in a matter of minutes she makes strangers feel like they have know her forever.You could have fun at a funeral with her.Her ability to see humor in everything draws people in,she proved this at the Miss Jacksonville Pageant where she won the interview competition.

Tammie is an incredible singing talent,from the lowest alto note,to the highest soprano note her range was effortless.She  also could add hamorny parts to any song instantly,hearing her sing was truly amazing.She also had a keen eye for decorating,fashion,and make up,that plus her sarcastic quick wit made her and  Julie complimentary together,If the “dymanic duo “was at a party,you knew you would have a good time.

My predictions werent too far off,Julie is inspiring people all over the world on a weekly basis,and Tammie is a make-up consultant for Estee Lauder.I wish the best of luck to both of them and thier familys.
