My CNN interview

My CNN interview

Here I was, 9 1/2 month preggo, and CNN contacted me for an interview. It seemed as if, after the NY Observer article, this was a big issue of controversy, and even more so after this interview...

Muslim Bikini Model Maryam Basir Enjoys Her Moment

By Zev Chafets Moving through Midtown Manhattan on a summer afternoon with Maryam Basir was an opportunity to walk a few blocks in someone else’s shoes—in this case, peep-toe oxford platforms with five-and-a-half-inch heels.

Ever Call Yourself?
