Neither mind you know we've evolved we've grown up a little bit you've matured.
And so this show is a reflection of who I am -- in my life since certainly is -- I did back and it was that it was -- that younger generation.
And now it's just a little bit much mature smarter version of the.
Wait a minute on -- more mature than this -- and not to say let's take a look back at the old Ricky.
Yeah exactly good -- -- buying them.
Do you feel like you're tired and that really -- on the end yeah.

Indeed it was classic it's classic ninety's big time craziness.
I mean I look I love that -- -- high level.
We did with you know teenage drug addiction and and pregnancy and we did a lot of good stuff for the show.
I would now need doing something else you know will you have moments like that on the news show it's safe to say -- not have someone come on and -- summons with golf no I don't think in less in I can't imagine -- -- show but we're doing shows on.
Issues that matter to women -- she's -- you know whether it's.

I mean I think if I hadn't -- thing that's trouble that they have people.
Finding non threatening a sign that no she could be my neighbor she could be -- I grew up with and -- very much what you see is what you get you know I've been around for 25 years they grow up watching me hairspray and that of course I show and -- make documentaries about women's issues and I'm.
I care at the world now at this time in my life that I had then I did when I was in my twenties I didn't have a point of -- back then and I feel like -- -- he get wiser you also learn from mistakes and I feel like.
I'm not coming on to the show to tell people how to live their life I haven't figured out for myself but I want to have a platform where there is Smart contents for women.
That you know we're all being that stop provoking it's making -- see things a different -- a different way and learning from each other and have a good time I'm -- said this is not gonna -- -- show you're not just an interview celebrities who do you have a dream -- that I'm for it always joked back in the day like in denying that it's -- who would you want to play Chelsea Clinton -- -- fascinated about her life and -- -- So it's a graceful person going through that crazy life of being in the White House is -- and we have a specific person for say I love people -- I'm curious about every one.
And I'm curious about the every person not -- the famous person we do you have high profile people on.
First -- when it matters with the subject that we're talking about when it makes sense for instance -- Mark Ballas danced with the stars my dear friend.
He was on last week for a really special show that was the energy to my heart.
Surviving suicide and his uncle had had committed suicide -- he has since started a foundation which is not something I knew about.
When I did dance with the stars with him so we were doing the show I talked to him and his mom and they came on him -- near times bestselling author on talking I mean.
It's just doing sort of Smart content it's taking some of the topics -- back in the day.
But just doing -- no way that's a little bit more relevant to little bit more.
Kind of substantial.
