The Boylans appeared on Oprah today, “Most Memorable Guests.” You can read the online account of the appearance here.
The main thing is that my kids spoke: they wanted to advocate on behalf of families like ours, and other children like them. They did great– as did Deedie/Grace, who shone.
You can draw your own conclusions about the context: the other memorable guests included the Texas Polygamist Wives, Ted Haggard, a 500 pound man, and so on.
Mostly, though, I am proud of my family. And yes, they showed the cover of She’s Not There, which is a good thing. I’m hoping it’s a good thing for there to be images in the public eye of families like ours, even if some the other guests were a little scary.
Zach had the best line of the show, though. Later he asked me, vis a vis the Texas Polygamist Wives: “Maddy, if you’re going to have ten wives, shouldn’t at least ONE of them be hot?”
