    Actress Misty Upham Talks Struggles, Triumphs, Meryl Streep, Melissa Leo, August: Osage County and More

    Misty Upham’s story strips away the perceived glitz and glamour of Hollywood. She was working as a dog walker and cleaning a home – scrubbing a floor to be exact – when she was offered a chance to audition for one of 2013’s biggest films, August: Osage County. The Meryl Streep/Julia Roberts film, which garnered various Oscar nominations, has led the Native American actress to ongoing acting work. Hers is a story of being a housecleaner one minute to appearing onscreen with one of acting’s greatest living performers, Meryl Streep, the next. It was back in 2008 that Misty starred alongside Oscar winning actress Melissa Leo in Frozen River. That movie netted her a Spirit Award nomination. The film, which yielded Melissa Leo an Oscar Nomination, could also have brought Misty a Supporting Actress nomination.

Though she did not receive encouragement from her mega-wealthy father in the beginning, he came around because she persevered to achieve some of her singing and performing goals on her own.

  • In a Gust, The Hurricane Leaves Us Behind; RIP Rubin “Hurricane” Carter: We Look Back at Our 2011 CYInterview

    Rubin "Hurricane" Carter passed away today. He was 76 years old. Mr. Carter, who initially rose to fame as a boxer, is best remembered for his incarceration and subsequent battle with the criminal justice system, based on his protestations of innocence. After being convicted of murdering three people at a tavern in New Jersey in 1966, Mr. Carter's conviction was overturned in 1985 after having served 19 years in prison. No doubt, many know Rubin Carter's story owing to the 1999 movie The Hurricane. Oscar winning actor Denzel Washington portrayed the incarcerated pugilist in that film. In 2011, I spoke with Mr. Carter for over 35 minutes. In our CYInterview, he told me prison was the best thing that ever happened to him, even though he always maintained his innocence. Rubin also spoke about Muhammad Ali, Nelson Mandela, the Canadian family who assisted in getting him released from prison, inaccuracies in the movie The Hurricane, as well as many other topics.

    Nascar Driver Brian Vickers, Professor of Medicine Dr. Jack Ansell Join CYInterview for an Important Discussion on Blood Clots

    Each year, a reported 900,000 Americans suffer blood clots and up to 300,000 end up dying. For Nascar driver Brian Vickers, blood clots have impacted his life on two different occasions. Dealing with blood clots sidelined his auto racing career. The winter season is, reportedly, when the incidents of blood clots rise. Brian Vickers joins me, along with Dr. Jack Ansell, Professor of Medicine at New York University’s School of Medicine, to inform people about dealing with blood clots.

    Powerhouse Attorney Gloria Allred Receives Lifetime Achievement Award at the National Trial Lawyers Summit; Meets CYInterview; Discusses Award, More

    For almost seven years, powerhouse attorney Gloria Allred has been a CYInterview regular, providing us with legal analysis and perspectives on a variety of compelling topics. In 2012 Ms. Allred joined us, along with former New Mexico Governor and Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson for an important discussion concerning the fairness of the presidential debates [see here]. Recently, the civil rights attorney was on South Beach to receive a lifetime achievement award at the National Trial Lawyers Summit. Throughout her legal career, Attorney Allred has been fighting for the underdog. Her tireless work in the areas of women’s rights, gay rights and helping those who have been discriminated against, among other things, led to her receiving the President’s Volunteer Award at the White House. That award was presented to her by then President Ronald Regan. Speaking of Presidents, last year President Obama stated that Gloria was one of the best attorneys in America.
