Overview

Dish and Tell: Six Real Women Discuss How They Put Themselves at the Top of Their To-Do List by Miami Bombshells, Patricia San Pedro, Annie San Roman, Tammi Leader Fuller

It's easy to feel like we're alone in our struggles, but when we're able to share our stories with other women, we realize how alike we really are. There is comfort in numbers and knowing that we're not alone.
— Patricia

As women, we take care of everyone else before ourselves. Now is the time to put your needs at the top of your to-do list, because if not now, when?
— Annie

We realized we're not perfect, and we're pretty sure we're not alone. Besides, beauty — and being a "bombshell" — is more about being courageous than curvaceous.
— Mercedes

Although these are our stories, we're really just the "stand-ins" for all women who struggle to juggle. This book is about things most women can totally relate to but would never discuss in public.
— Tammi

Maybe having it all isn't having it all at all. We're trying to be happy with "enough," so let's lower the bar a little and start enjoying the lives we've created for ourselves.
— Sara

We created our Bombshell Circle to provide unconditional support to one another. Dish & Tell highlights the power of girlfriends. Read the book and start your own circle (and make sure you have plenty of wine and chocolate!).
— Lydia

Lydia Sacasa: successful banker who works seventy hour weeks and is obsessed with cooking, designer clothes and being a good mother to her three children...even if that means staying up till 6 a.m. to make homemade costumes for the school play!

Sara Rosenberg: this power player travels the world speaking to publishing groups about innovation and change.

Mercedes Soler: one of the most influential Latina newscasters, more recognizable among Hispanics in the U.S. than Oprah. She's a five time Emmy award winning newscaster for Univision.

The original "Miami Bombshell", who brought them all together, Patricia is a three-time Emmy award-winning producer and media executive who now runs a successful marketing and PR firm. She has 12,000 people in her contact list, making her the most "connected" Bombshell. She's a spiritual being, who believes everything happens for a reason. Patricia is childless, single and loving every minute of life.

Naturally blonde and blue-eyed Annie is a school Psychologist who worked with troubled teens for many years and is now counseling students who are emotionally handicapped. She is a committed mother of two, who after 24 years of marriage, is throwing in the towel, and she can't believe she is going to be single again at 46.

Tammi Leader Fuller has been “making news” in South Florida for twenty-five years. Her television career began with a summer internship at WLPG (ABC), when riots had the city of Miami in flames and hundreds of Cuban rafters washing ashore every single day in what was eventually dubbed the Mariel Boat Lift. She left local news after a couple of years to teach topless aerobics at a Club Med village in the Caribbean, then snapped back to reality and moved to New York, to become Bureau Chief for the Nightly Business Report, a nationally syndicated show on PBS. But eventually, Miami called her back home, and she jumped right back into producing newscasts for WTVJ (CBS/NBC) in 1984, spending a decade there, producing, writing and managing their special projects unit. She received various accolades for her work, including two Emmy Awards. In 1992, Tammi started her own production company, producing hundreds of stories for NBC’s The Today Show, the NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, MSNBC and CNBC, as well as Fox’s America’s Most Wanted, and 48 Hours on CBS. She remains a regular contributor to the Today Show and the nationally syndicated entertainment program, Extra. In the past couple of years, Tammi has steered her company into a completely different direction, taking on the challenge of producing Corporate Marketing Videos and Travel Diaries for various resorts across the globe. Over the past two years, Tammi in Miami Productions has expanded to include six employees and a state of the art post production studio.

A Miami native, Sara Rosenberg’s only real time away from the city she loves was to attend college at Boston University’s School of Communication. With degree in hand, she returned to South Florida, where she spent the next twelve years working for Burger King in various marketing positions: negotiating film rights for Kids Meals, developing new burger variations, and launching the Value Menu. After that, Burger King’s parent company, Diageo, came calling with a chance to work in London for brands like Pillsbury, Guinness and Johnny Walker. Two years later, Sara yearned for home, so she accepted a position with The Miami Herald as Vice President of Consumer Marketing. Sara oversees over sixty employees in marketing, community relations, research, event marketing and creative. She is also the Publisher of StreetMiami, an alternative weekly publication focused on lifestyles and entertainment, and targeted at 18 to 34 year olds. It keeps her young. An avid public speaker, Sara speaks often to women’s groups about the myth of having it all. In addition, she is a sought-after presenter on innovating within the newspaper industry, and her travels have taken her as far away as Australia. Sara found a new hobby in writing this book, and has been saving a lot of money on therapy, too. She is married, round two, with one son and two stepsons.

A successful mortgage banking executive who works 70 hour weeks, Lydia is obsessed with work, food and designer everything. The only Grandma in the bunch, this Cuban American Princess takes pride in being a good mother...even if that means staying up all night to finish a costume for a school project.

One of the most recognized Hispanic broadcast journalists in the U.S., Mercedes Soler is a five time Emmy winner who found God while reporting on a story. A devoted mom, she thinks the concept of "quality time" is way overrated and would like to just spend "real time" with her children. Period. Always perfectly coiffed, Mercedes is the only Bombshell still married to her One and Only.
