    I’m a tall gal also: 6′ tall with 3′ long legs & size 14–16. When I was in my 20s, Lane Bryant was the only store that had a tall section (online only). Growing up, either my Mom or I made most of my clothes. I used to buy guys’ jeans at the GAP. Later on, KMart sold Route 66 jeans for women, which came in Talls. I also had trouble finding shoes. I wear a 10-1/2 C in the front & A in the back. I always said that if I had unending amounts of money, the first thing I would do was have shoes made specifically for my foot. Don’t even get me started on trying to find boots that fit- LOL.

    When I was in Jr HS, a random Woman came up to me & my Mother, & complimented me on the fact that I was sitting in a chair & standing up with my back stick-straight up instead of slouching. She said I was the first tall girl she had ever seen who didn’t try to hide her height. I told her that I was proud to be 6′ tall & that I came from a family with tall Women. My Mom’s 2 Sisters were also 6′ tall.

    I’m so glad that women’s sports are getting more attention. Women are fierce competitors. Yes, they play for the love of the game; they also play To Win. We Women need to support our Sisters; we need to attend Women’s games just like Men attend Male-dominated sports. Girl Power!

    I liked when Leslie said no one belived in the WNBA but just look at it now. Ok let’s look at it. It loses 12 million a year for 25 years. And the ONLY reason it’s around is because NBA subsidies it. No one watches it. Lol

    Biggest question that I have for these two beautiful women that was not addressed in interview, do they know if they have ever been a puzzle answer on Wheel or other show? Come on, “LISA LESLIE JONES” would be wonderful. 👏👏👏👏

    I was already (chronologically) an adult when I learned tall girls didn’t like it or felt awkward. Immediately thought that was nuts. Tall girls are awesome. (Being the obnoxious type, if I dated a tall girl, used to say I kept her around for protection).

    I see that previous episode with Dreymond had her humble herself a bit.
