A free book that comes to my house full of nothing but women in their underwear? God Bless America! [on the Victoria's Secret catalog] (in 2006) I turned down a movie this summer because it was nine weeks in Vancouver and my oldest daughter is 14. I've got four more summers with her. I'm not giving away nine weeks of her summer to go do a silly movie. For a long time, because it goes against the message that the advertising world sends to you, they were ashamed they didn't have the coolest clothes, the coolest cars, couldn't afford to go here, buy this and do that. I think we finally all got together and went, 'You know what? We like being this way.' Salary "The Jeff Foxworthy Show" (1995) $32,500/episode "Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?"
