Colon Club member on TV

Postby Green Tea » Tue Nov 17, 2020 3:16 pm

Colon Club member Danielle Ripley-Burgess was interviewed recently by the Today show:

Danielle is a long time Colon club member and was Colondar Model for September 2008.

Last year about this time Danielle published a book and had a book-signing event at her local bookstore. This year she published yet another book but so far I haven't seen any announcements about book-signing events. Maybe the bookstores there are closed for confinement.

Danielle also has a blog with frequent blog-post updates. People interested in receiving blog updates from her by e-mail can register on her blog site.
