Because I think to this day she carries a certain – and I always say, ‘Mom you shouldn’t, because you really did live the American dream and you went to school and you became a journalist and that’s really such a tremendous thing.’ But I don’t know is there’s that same kind of shame anymore. There’s not the same kind of stigma.” – Fox Business host Trish Regan, on last night’s show.
