Really Famous with Kara Mayer Robinson

Sep 21, 2020

This is a Really Famous classic. I'm re-sharing it because it's the kind of talk a lot of us need right now.

Daisy Fuentes inspires me – and I think will inspire you. I love her perspective, approach to life, insight and authenticity.

Daisy is the host of a new TV show on NBC called A New Leaf, sponsored by with executive producer Robin Samuels.

Back in the day, Daisy was a hugely popular MTV VJ. Ever since, she's been all over television. She was the host of House of Style, America’s Funniest Home Videos, Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, her own CNBC talk show called Daisy ... I can go on and on.

Daisy has had an extraordinary life trajectory. She started as a model, accidentally scored a last-minute gig presenting the weather on Telemundo, and pretty much everything blew up from there. We talk about all that, and more.


  • ancestry and DNA testing (hers, mine + other people's)
  • how she learned to take advantage of opportunties
  • becoming a successful entrepreneur
  • making her parents proud
  • fame
  • social media (really nice fan interactions vs. trolls)
  • how Martha Quinn set her up with Richard Marx
  • her dating + marriage story with husband Richard Marx
  • the universe's little messages
  • the law of attraction
  • how she envisioned her life, and what actually happened
  • fear
  • love
  • family
  • New Jersey
