Here’s the video of Shonda Rhimes on the Ellen DeGeneres Show. See the interview of the ‘Scandal’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ creator on her new memoir, ‘Year of Yes,’ and the changes she has made in her life, including her dramatic weight loss. The replay and more details are below.
The video is above. Shonda Rhimes spoke about the issues she explores in her new book, ‘Year of Yes: How to Dance It Out, Stand In the Sun and Be Your Own Person, (available at Amazon).
Her new memoir is so titled for her commitment to say “yes” to what she was previously saying “no” to, and thus overcoming the panic attacks and shyness that were hampering her personal and professional life.
Asked about her weight loss, she said, “The more fears I conquered, the more I felt like I can do this too or I can do that too. And so I lost weight.”
She also spoke of the incident, detailed in her book, that was the impetus to make positive changes; she was sitting in first class on a plane and the seat belt did not fit her.
The interview was broadcast originally on Monday, November 9, 2015.
