Heather "Dooce" Armstrong Makes Kathie Lee Uncomfortable

Talk about ice queens on the Today show: This morning, Heather B. Armstrong met with Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford to talk about her award-winning, groundbreaking blog Dooce — is it just me or doesn't it seem a bit unfair to call it a "Mom Blog"? — and sat on the couch with her arms crossed the entire time, looking cold. (In temperature, not in spirit.) Maybe she was simply preparing herself for Kathie Lee's line of questioning. About three minutes into the interview, Kathie Lee admitted that she has "mixed emotions" about Armstrong's chosen line of work, then quickly changed the subject to tease the show's next segment about home decorating.

I just can't believe that there are people who work in a professional entertainment/pop culture capacity that don't understand the concept of blogging. I don't care how old they are. It's so clear that Kathy Lee and Hoda don't quite get it and it makes me sad.

I'm not a regular reader of Dooce but I've read it a few times and I enjoy it for the same reasons that I enjoy a lot of blogs on my reader—-it makes you realize that a lot of people are struggling with the same feelings and issues and situations that you are.

I don't get why KLG thinks this blog is any different from her constant yammering about her own damn kids for years and years on Regis.
