First guest! Jenette Goldstein
We introduce her and she tells her story of starting as an actress with Jim Cameron on Aliens in London.
We ask the big important question – when is menopause actually OVER? She’s 58, btw.
She tells us about her Bra store empire – Jenette Bras and her husband who came up with the tagline – The Alphabet Starts at D – the man behind the rack.
Let’s talk about Boobs and Bras – a good bra should last 2 years, and you should always have 3 at a time. She also sells bathing suits. Julia tells about getting a bikini and feeling good about wearing it.
HRT can make you puffy in the boob area. There’s breast tissue that’s dense vs. fatty. Julia talks about starting HRT and why: Murderous Rage.
Jenette didn’t have a very tough menopause – symptoms were annoying but not bad enough to see a doctor, but she did get a little of the fuzzy brain thing. She hated it.
Joke “Why does it take 27 menopausal women to screw in a light bulb? It JUST DOES, ok??????” She feels like she has low tolerance for idiocy – short fuse, but has always had a short temper.
“Yelling and Yanking: Jennette’s guide to parenting” her idea for a fun book.
“All Joy and No Fun” real title of a book about parenting that Julia read. Curious about what life will be like when menopause is DONE – and how will we know?
She’s been planning her empty nest but now one of her kids has moved back. Plus she sees them each weekend for laundry. She started her business when her youngest started middle school – has all respect for women who run businesses and have young kids. Jenette had a live-in nanny for her kids who, when she thinks back on it, must have been going through menopause. Every mother needs help!
Plus she mentioned working with charity Glamour Gowns (for the girls) and Suit Up (for the guys). Jenette started her own non-profit: Hourglass Underground to give away bras for girls going to proms.
Thank you Jenette!
