Oddly enough, this week Deirdre Imus, wife to embattled shock jock Don Imus, came out with a book, “Green This! Volume 1: Greening Your Cleaning”, about how to clean you home with fewer toxins. Turns out, she’s also a vegan, and has even turned curmudgeon cum racist Don into one too.
It’s her second book, the first one being, “The Imus Ranch, Cooking for Kids and Cowboys,” a vegan cookbook. Deirdre also helms the Deirdre Imus Environmental Center for Pediatric Oncology, an organization that aims to help: “identify, control and ultimately prevent exposures to environmental factors that may cause adult, and especially pediatric cancer, as well as other health problems with our children,” according to its website.
All fascinating stuff. One can only imagine what conversations they’re having right now. His timing–making racist comments and then getting fired–is probably pretty lousy for her book sales. Then again, maybe not. I’d be more inclined to buy her book, knowing what a hard time she’s probably going through. Dunno. What do you think?
