The good thing about 'Have I Got News For You' is it's

My parents never pushed me towards music. I feel like, growing up in a musical household and always being surrounded by it, I was always kind of a performer child.

Pamela Druckerman
Our guests, in fact, who buy online with Ulta Beauty and in our store is our best guest. But what she is buying online is quite incremental. She is not just replenishing like-items: she is buying new and exciting things all the time.

Guests who shop at Ulta know exactly what we’re about. People who have not shopped at Ulta or have not shopped at Ulta for a long time have a fuzzy image. And that’s what I’m all about sharpening and elevating.
Mary Dillon
I look at each one of my restaurants, and I want my personality to come out. Some are serious, some are intense when it comes to food and wines, some are meat masters supreme. I enjoy all my guests.

Michael Mina
I have the version of me where I’m interviewing someone, where I definitely am the straight man, and I like to show a lot of respect to my guest and let them take the reins.

Tom Green

Letitia Baldrige
Everything I ask is a question from Tamron, like it or not. My team does not write my questions. We put together a segment. We talk about the elements that I want, but we have a conversation for that hour with our guests.
