Kathie Lee & Hoda: Lisa G on Making Love and Baking Cookies

Lisa G first made a name for herself as an urban radio host in the ’90s where she worked at Hot 97. She went on to win the Billboard On Air Personality of the Year award and has since began working on The Howard Stern Show.

She isn’t just an excellent radio host though. She is also an excellent baker and the author of the new book, Sex, Lies and Cookies.

The book goes in depth about her life and career and how cookies have played a pretty big part. She said when she was younger she would bake cookies for men for the wrong reason. She would sleep with them and then rush home to bake them cookies without even thinking about whether or not she liked them. She just wanted to be accepted.

“I didn’t even think if they were cookie worthy. Were they worth my time baking cookies?” said Lisa D. “It was bad.”

She said it was a time in her life when she had no self-esteem and she was completely absorbed by her job. She likened her work ethic to a stand up mixer whirring around. She couldn’t get out of the cycle. It was hard for her to just stop, learn to love herself and then move on with her life.
