Coffee With: Cyndi Lauper


TOYOTA HELPS YOU GET THE MOST OF OUT OF YOUR DRIVE, JUST ASK A FRIEND WHO DRIVES ONE. TOYOTA, LET’S GO PLACES. THIS MORNING’S COFFEE WITH IS WITH CINDY LAUPER AND DR. JEFFERY WINEBERG. IT’S FURNISHED BY THE NATIONAL PSORIASIS FOUNDATION AND NORVARTIS PHARMACEUTICALS. CINDY LAUPER AND DR. JEFFERY, WELCOME TO WJZ. HOW YOU BOTH DOING? GREAT, THANK YOU. THAT’S AMAZING . I WANT TO SAVE A LITTLE BIT OF TIME AT THE END TO CHANGE SUBJECTS BUT WE’RE TALK ABOUT PSORIASIS. CINDY, I HAD NO IDEA THAT YOU HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS FOR AS LONG AS WE’VE KNOWN YOU. WHY STEP OUT OF THE — NO. 4 YEARS. ONLY 4 YEARS. ONLY 4 YEARS. FROM WHAT I’M READING IT THE PRESS RELEASE MADE IT SOUND LIKE YOU’VE BEEN DEALING WITH THIS FOREVER. IT PROBABLY SEEMS LIKE 4 YEARS WITH PSORIASIS SEEMS LIKE A LONGER TIME THAN THAT. SEEMS LIKE THAT. HOW DOES THIS COME ON? IS IT JUST DRY SKIN, DR. JEFF? DO YOU JUST TAKE SOME LUBRIDERM AND TAKE CARE OF THIS? HOW DOES THIS COME ON? THAT WOULD BE NICE. GENERALLY PEOPLE HAVE PRE PREDISPOSITION TO THIS. SOMETHING SETS IT OFF, WHETHER IT’S AN INFECTION OR SOME OTHER TRIGGER THAT WE’RE NOT AWARE OF. IT’S A VERY COMMON PROBLEM. ABOUT 7.5 MILLION AMERICANS. THAT’S A DIRTY TRICK. IT IS. YOU THINK YOU’RE FINE AND YOU THINK A LITTLE LUBRIDERM WOULD DO IT BUT IT DOESN’T. IT CAN BE DIFFICULT TO DEAL WITH. FOR ME, I WAS ON TOUR WITH CHAIR WITH IT AND IT COVERED MY WHOLE ENTIRE BODY INCLUDING MY HEAD. I WAS DOING THE REALITY SHOW WITH IT. AFTER A WHILE YOU TRY AND COVER IT WITH MAKE UP AND THEN YOU HAVE LIKE TURTLE NECKS AND THEN YOU DON’T WANT TO WEAR ANYTHING BECAUSE IT HURTS. YOU KNOW, I HAD IT PRETTY SEVERE BECAUSE I THOUGHT, OH, I CAN DO THIS AND IT WILL GO AWAY. IT DIDN’T GO AWAY. THEN I BECAME INVOLVED WITH THE NATIONAL PSORIASIS FOUNDATION AND NORVARTIS AND THE I’M SO READY CAMPAIGN WHICH HELPS PEOPLE UNDERSTAND THAT IT’S NOT JUST A RASH. I WAS LUCKY ENOUGH TO MEET DR. WINEBERG WHO IS REALLY KIND OF COOL AND JUST LISTENED. YOU DID. YOU DIDN’T SAY YOU HAVE TO DO THIS, YOU HAVE TO DO THAT, YOU JUST LISTENED, ASKED QUESTIONS. IT HELPED ME A LOT. I DIDN’T EVEN TALK TO PEOPLE — I DIDN’T TALK WITH PEOPLE WITH PSORIASIS WHO HAD IT AS BAD AS ME. WASN’T JUST A TINY RASH HERE, IT WAS COVERING MY ENTIRE BODY INCLUDING MY HEAD AND EARS. AFTER A WHILE I WAS LIKE I CAN’T EVEN — I STOPPED WORKING. I STOPPED WORKING FOR A LITTLE BIT. NOW I’M BETTER AND I CAN ACTUALLY DO THE THINGS. I CAN GO TO ENGLAND FOR THE OPENING OF KINKY BOOTS, GO MAKE ANOTHER RECORD, WORK. SURE. JEFF, REAL QUICK, I JUST WANT TO ASK YOU, IF SOMEONE IS WATCHING HOW DO THEY KNOW IF THEY’VE GOT PSORIASIS OPPOSED TO JUST DRY SKIN OR SHINGLES? WHAT WILL BE THEIR CLUE? THEY WILL SEE IN THE SCALP, ELBOWS OR KNEES A RED AREA WITH THICK SCALES ON IT, LIKE A THICK STUCK ON SCALE. YOU KNOW WHAT, I DON’T EXPECT THE AVERAGE PERSON NECESSARILY KNOWS. THEY REQUEST LOOK IT UP ONLINE. MOST IMPORTANTLY, THEY SHOULD SEE THEIR PHYSICIAN IF THEY’RE NOT SURE. WE’RE GOING TO DEDICATE THIS TO A GUY I KNOW YOU KNEW. WE FIRST MET YOU AT WRESTLEMANIA ONE. ROWDY RODNEY PIPER. I SMILE WHEN I THINK OF HOT ROD. WHEN HE PASS ED ED I WAS THINKING ABOUT YOU AND HOGAN. I SAW VOCOLF IN TOWN ALL THE TIME. HE MADE EVERYTHING — YEAH. RODDY MADE EVERYTHING FUN . HIM AND RU. I LAUGHED A LOT. THOSE GUYS WERE GREAT . RODDY EVEN THOUGH HE WAS NASTY SOMETIMES HE HAD A SWEETNESS ABOUT HIM THAT WAS UNBELIEVABLE. HE HAD THIS WONDERFUL SWEETNESS. HE MADE EVERYONE LAUGH. HE WAS JUST SUCH A GREAT GUY. I’M SORRY HE PASSED. THE ONLY CONSOLATION IS THAT MAYBE IT WAS PEACEFUL IN HIS SLEEP. GOD BLESS HIM.
