On the fourth episode of the new celebrity talk show Sundays With Alec Baldwin, Baldwin interviews comedic actor Mike Myers and former president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America (2006-2018*) Cecile Richards. Richards, the daughter of the late Texas Governor Ann Richards, is the author of the instant New York Times bestseller Make Trouble: Standing Up, Speaking Out, and Finding the Courage to Lead. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, feminist Gloria Steinem and author Ann Patchett (Commonwealth, State of Wonder, Bel Canto), are just a few notables who wrote blurbs for the book.
Richards now sits on the board of the Ford Foundation. She and her husband, labor organizer Kirk Adams, have three children and reside in New York City. Their eldest, Lily Adams, served as press secretary for Tim Kaine and as a communications advisor for Hillary Clinton’s Democratic Presidential campaign before becoming Communications Director for Senator Kamala Harris, a potential 2020 presidential contender. (Cecile Richards launched her career as deputy chief of staff for House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi.) Sundays with Alec Baldwin airs Sundays at 10 pm on ABC.
*Chinese-born physician Leana Wen, 35, is now president of Planned Parenthood. Wen was formerly Health Commissioner of Baltimore City, Maryland.
