Today we have a special interview for you that you can read excerpts from below or listen the entire chat via Hotel Interactive Radio.
We’re changing pace for a day to give everyone a dose of feel good inspiration and to make that happen Mark Viola and I interviewed Leigh Anne Tuohy, who is the inspiration for the book and Academy Award winning movie “The Blind Side.”
But not only is she an inspiration for her role in adopting and raising Michael Oher – who has went on to become a pro football player, she is also an interior designer. That’s right we got the hotel angle in there anyway. Aside from operating her own design firm she was featured on Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, has some new hush hush TV projects in the works and has had clients such as Scottie Pippin and Peyton Manning.
She also spoke at last week’s sold out BITAC Luxury. We managed to grab her for this great interview. For full effect we suggest listening.
Glenn Haussman: We have Miss Leigh Anne Tuohy. How are you today?
Leigh Anne Tuohy: I’m great, guys. How are you?
Mark Viola: Great.
Glenn Haussman: I am doing really great, thrilled that you are here, and for those of you out there who are unaware of who Leigh Anne Tuohy is, and I find it hard to believe –
Leigh Anne Tuohy: They must be living under a rock.
Mark Viola: Absolutely.
