Nate Berkus premiere week episode visits Elizabeth Edwards in her N.C. home furnishings store
Susan Dickenson -- Home Accents Today, September 9, 2010
Elizabeth Edwards will sit down with daytime host Nate Berkus Fri., Sept. 17 to discuss how she is turning the page on the past and beginning a new chapter in her life focusing on her relationship with her children, as well as her love of design.
Last year, the estranged wife of former presidential candidate John Edwards opened Red Window, a home furnishings business in Chapel Hill and the setting for a portion of the interview. In addition, Edwards opens the doors of her home to Berkus and is scheduled to join him in-studio on the show's New York set.
Berkus said Edwards was honest, funny and a pleasure to be around. "Her passion to build a new life for herself is nothing if not inspiring. And, the fact that we both love design, gave us an instant connection. Being around her reaffirmed my love of strong women. They take their lives into their own hands and aren't bound by any parameters or rules. I think viewers will be happily surprised by her candor, pure wit and love of life."
Terry Murphy, the show's executive producer, said "Nate and Elizabeth's conversation was truly revealing and the content of the interview is fresh, untold and will make a difference in the lives of viewers. From her very useful light-hearted tips on how to bargain shop to the overall message that you can survive the storm and reclaim your life to find a new normal that works, I am sure our audience will be able to relate to her as a person."
The Nate Berkus Show premiered Monday, Sept. 13 on stations owned and operated by NBC (check local listings).
