Lynda Carter: At home with 'Wonder Woman'

It’s not everyday an American icon opens his or her door to a roving reporter but with great kindness Lynda Carter welcomed me into her home. Her mansion was a like a museum… an abundance of family and ancestry portraits, stones  from Mexico, dolls from Korea, Wonder Woman pillow here… Wonder Woman statue there. The wow factor wasn’t tough to find… her impressive ‘wall of fame’ featured Carter framed with everybody from Prince Charles to Michael Jackson, Bob Hope, Jimmy Carter. I couldn’t stop thinking of all the amazing stories that must’ve come with those moments.

We decided on her piano room for the sit down interview since music would be the main topic of our conversation. Carter talked about her upcoming performance at the Kennedy Center this weekend and revealed there’s a new album in the works. We talked songwriting, family (laughed about how kids use to call her son ‘wonder boy’ in school), charity and how she hopes there’s a wonder woman in all of us. Of course we got to see those famous bracelets, the headband and the magic lasso too! Stay tuned for when my one-on-one with Lynda airs on  WUSA9 TV this week.
