When Kristin Adams decides to do something, you better watch out, because it gets done – and it gets done well. Of course, it’s no surprise to find that Kristin feels at home on a stage, talking, performing and interacting with crowds, but it’s her enthusiasm, hard work, and joyful attitude that truly make this native Texan shine so brightly.
It was during her sophomore year at TCU in Fort Worth, Texas that Kristin decided to give cheerleading a try. Her sheer determination scored her a stint as a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader – part of their elite show group– a job that took her all over the world on USO tours. And before graduating cum laude, friends suggested she audition for a new show on Fox called “American Idol,” and suddenly she found herself on television screens all over the country singing her way to the top 30.
After the show, Kristin returned to TCU, but one day after class, picked up the phone and called Executive Producer, Nigel Lythgoe, to pitch herself as a co-host and special correspondent for the second season of the show. And that’s how she went from her dorm room to a room at the Ritz Carlton, kicking off a successful hosting career.
Though she often travels the world on assignments representing global brands like Samsung and AT&T, Kristin carries her hometown in her heart, and remains true to the beliefs instilled in her. It’s her natural curiosity, work ethic, and respect for people from all walks of life that serve her well no matter what she puts her mind to. From interviews with A-list celebrities such as Conan O’Brien, Will Smith and countless others, red carpet events, news reporting, acting roles, her long-term gig on G4TV’s X-Play and host of the videogame show “Cheat,” to hanging with Elmo on Sesame Street—even Tae Kwon Do, where she earned a black belt, Kristin is always the ultimate professional and never gives less than 100%.
Over the past three years, Kristin has entered the most rewarding and fulfilling stage of her life – mom to Harper and Holt. She and her husband Danny, an actor and performer, both agree that the blessings bestowed upon them by being parents brings them joy beyond measure. Kristin loves teaching and modeling to her kids that with faith and determination, they can do anything they put their mind to!
Threats Have No Place In Cassandra C. Case MICHAEL S. TAYLOR OP ED
I am troubled by the news that the Department of Children and Families and Connecticut Children’s Medical Center have received threats over the forced chemotherapy treatment of Cassandra C. Although many of us disagree with DCF’s position in the case, neither organization should have to worry about.

Meanwhile, lawyers for the 17 year old Windsor Lock girl and her mother, Jackie Fortin, are preparing to return to the child protection session of Superior Court in Middletown and ask for a hearing that further explores whether Cassandra is mature enough and legally capable to make the decision to refuse chemotherapy. Cassandra has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
On Jan. 8, the state Supreme Court let stand Superior Court orders that gave DCF temporary custody of Cassandra, who had run away after taking two initial chemotherapy treatments. A court ordered course of treatment began upon Cassandra’s return more than a month ago, and will run for a total of six months.
Cassandra turns 18 in September, and at that point could make these decisions on her own as an adult. At issue now is whether a minor can be mature enough to make those choices, and whether Cassandra fits that bill.
Doctors testified at the Superior Court hearings in November and December and DCF’s lawyer reiterated the point before the Supreme Court that without chemotherapy, Cassandra would die. With the treatment, according to the testimony, she has an 80 percent to 85 percent chance of survival and full recovery.
But lawyer Michael Taylor of West Hartford, who represents the mother, and Assistant Public Defender Joshua Michtom, who represents Cassandra, say that the teen’s level of maturity and her ability to make major medical decisions under the “mature minor doctrine” was not adequately explored in the earlier hearings.
Taylor has said that the Supreme Court did not foreclose the possibility wholesale cheap jerseys that the mother’s and daughter’s lawyers could return to the lower court and request a third hearing. Taylor has said he is lining up an extensive psychological evaluation of Cassandra and expert testimony about her mental capacity and understanding of the choices she is making.
“We are also going to ask the court to review her circumstances generally, including her continued confinement, her separation from her mother and the fact that she is not permitted to use her phone,” Taylor said Wednesday.
DCF spokesman Gary Kleeblatt said the agency is “exploring options for Cassandra to live in a specialized group home where her medical needs will continue to be addressed and where we know she will receive the treatment she needs to recover and save her life.”
Kleeblatt, in a statement, said the teenager “is able to leave the hospital because her next chemotherapy treatment will not occur for several weeks. However, there are other medical treatments that are required for Cassandra to continue her progress toward recovery. The group home we are considering has the medical staff available to provide those treatments.”
The DCF has said that Fortin has “missed critical medical appointments for Cassandra and has not facilitated necessary medical treatment.”
Kleeblatt said in the statement that “returning Cassandra home is not an option that will ensure she receives the treatment she needs Most important, we are pleased with the progress Cassandra is making, and we are optimistic she will have a long and healthy future.”
Fortin has countered that she and her daughter left the hospital after Cassandra had a portion of her lymph node removed to seek a second opinion and guidance on receiving alternative treatment. Fortin has said that her daughter wholesale nhl jerseys china feels that the “toxins and poisons” in chemotherapy will severely harm her body, and that Fortin supports that position.
