Marlee Maltin Neutral on CI Issues

Actress Marlee Maltin (MM)appeared on the iVillage syndicated show today (11/19) with Bill Rancic, former victor from Donald Trump's "The Apprentice" (2004). Rancic's blog said that the interview took the place on November 5, 2007.

Bill Rancic interviewed Marlee Matlin on the set of the "L-Word", Showtime-TV mature programming after the filming of final season episode(s). Rancic inquired Marlee Maltin about the CI issue. Maltin responded "I want to be netural on CI issues and doesn't want to get into this ....". MM managed to offer her own opinion that the parents of deaf youngsters ought to make a decision carefully whether the CI surgery is best for hir own children or not.

Hearing interviewer, Bill Rancic surprised Actress Marlee Maltin that he have his own sister, who is a certified audiologist. Maltin kept her own cool that Rancic tried to inject his own knowledge what his sister done with deaf children, blah.

Unforunately, there is no video clip from Marlee Maltin's interview. Nor taped this interview for the DeafRead readers within the RLMDEAF blog. So all of you out there, could draw your own conclusion from seeing the entire video clip of Marlee Maltin interview.

  1. It's Matlin, not Maltin.
    Interesting article, though. Thanks.

  2. If you subscribe DeafLife Magazine, you will see Marlee Matlin article about L-Show, her family life and her opinion about CI. Good article.

    It was last summer 2007 edition.


  3. GWLJ,

    I always thought that the "DeafLife" magazine no longer exists.

    I will look into this magazine edition. Many thanks for letting me know. :)

    Happy Gobbles!


  4. Anyomous,
