‘Today’s’ Tamron Hall: My new show is the best birthday gift

Tamron Hall is staging a glittering comeback.

The former “Today” show co-host and MSNBC anchor, who is partnering with Weinstein Television on a daily daytime talk show, sat next to her new boss Harvey Weinstein at Wednesday’s Marchesa show. She looked ready to celebrate in a sparkly blue dress from the line.

“My birthday is in two days, and Harvey gave me a birthday gift very early — discussions about this show, a big vision and big ideas,” she tells The Post, applauding the collection, which was co-designed by Weinstein’s wife, Georgina Chapman.

“I’ve been on TV for 25 years, since I was 18. Now, as I’m approaching 47, this is where I want to be and where I need to be. I’m just in the happiest place that I’ve been.”

Hall departed NBC News in February, where she hosted “Today’s Take,” after it was announced that her slot was being taken over by

Local man vows to fight suicide ‘head-on’ – Houma Today

Titus P. Savoie Jr. addressed the Terrebonne Parish Council about suicide awareness and prevention last week.

It wasn’t an easy presentation for the 48-year-old Houma resident because the meeting had been dominated for two hours by a debate over a controversial recreation district ordinance.

But Savoie remembered the encouraging words of his boyhood mentor, a school custodian named Minnie Robinson who served as his guardian angel.

As a gay student growing up in rural Arkansas, Savoie said school was a veritable hell.

“Many times I thought about killing myself during those days because of the bullying going on in the educational system,” Savoie said. “There are two main reasons why I didn’t do it: my mother, who raised me in the Christian faith and Minnie, the school custodian. She became my salvation at school, she really did. She became my protector. She would pull

Raffle to raise money for suicide awareness – News – Houma Today …

In 2009, Houma resident Titus P. Savoie Jr. said he decided to end his life. 

“I saw in the distance a big butane truck coming down the road at a fast speed and decided right then and there I was going to end everyone’s hurts by simply making that one leap of fate,” Savoie said. “As the truck got closer, I positioned myself to jump out in front of it. As it approached, just as I was about to leap, I changed my mind. I remember getting so mad at myself for backing out and was mad for even thinking about doing something so dumb.” 

Ravaged by conflicting emotions, Savoie said he fell to his knees and screamed in a mixture of anger and relief, comforted only by the internal voices of his mother and friend telling him not to go through with
