surprisingly. we get a lot of e-mails saying we're a guy but we read chick wit. not only women. >> francesca, you write about your relationship. one of the ones i remember reading it when it was on the column, was about rebounding. you came off of a relationship and then you ran into an athlete, a professional athlete which made me laugh. >> yeah. professional basketball player but in ireland. i didn't know about how that works out. rebound is an important skill. it is. >> what kind of skill did your mother give you? did she give you some advice as you were growing up? >> the truth is that my mom did a great job as far as teaching me that my self-worth doesn't need to come from whether i have a boyfriend or not. that's the key to bouncing back after a breakup, to know take a
little time for yourself reconnect with your friends. >> nice. good. well done. >> the line that i loved was men are like magnets. you need one to repel one. >> right. every woman has been in a crowded bar, knows that. for some reason you saying please step away i'm not interested in you is not enough. you need to say oh, i have a boyfriend or a wedding ring or whatever. i don't know. >> this is not a problem my age group has generally. we're not like beating them off in bars. actually, we never leave the couch. we're watching you, vai. >> you are so nice. tell me what the take-away for readers, what will they take away from reading this book? >> i think the title implies it it's intended to poke fun at the way we all feel as women the pressures large and small, frivolous and not, all the time and sometimes you need to let yourself take a vacation from all the pressure we put on ourselves. >> right. have fun. it's summer man. >> lisa did your mother parent you the way you parented
francesca? >> yes she did, but with more profanity. >> so you cut back. >> actually in fairness this book is a lot about the life of women and we did lose my mother this year. francesca wrote movingly about what it's like to be a granddaughter and i love that perspective. the book is really about life. >> what does it say about your relationship as mother and daughter? >> you know i'm in my 20s and we're still just growing closer but differently, and having to adjust that mother/daughter relationship to when your daughter, your kid, she still says oh, my kid, people think i'm 8 years old, is an adult and changing that relationship but for the better. >> here i thought i was sharing something that would be unique as a guy that reads your column but i find out from you a bunch of other dudes out there -- >> intelligent men read our column. >> there you go. give me a high five right there. that's what i'm talking about. tonight at 7:00 you will be at
the town book center in collegeville, tomorrow two signings one at noon at the barnes & noble at 18th and walnut in center city at the jcc in cherry hill. several other signings throughout our area this week. for a full list go to nbc10.com and also the nbc 10 mobile app. thank you very much ladies. continued success. we look forward to seeing you with your new book in two, three days? >> october. >> october. thank you very much for coming in. >> thank you. they may run into a few showers on the way to the book signings later today. right now we have clouds and are watching for showers and possibly thunderstorms. the temperature is slowly coming up. we will stay in the 80s today but this changes tomorrow. the humidity has been coming down but tomorrow it will be climbing. you will feel the difference. bit of a breeze is blowing.
if you look closely, the flags on top of the boat houses little bit of a breeze. a light breeze for most of the day today. we get thunderstorms, that's when we could see gusty winds. 80 in northeast philadelphia. so close to the 80 degree mark for wrightstown and toms river. wilmington up to 78 degrees. it was in the 60s this morning for langhorne and levittown. 80 now in chalfont. doylestown at 77 degrees. kintnersville up to 81. quakertown, 79. warm all around and a bit muggy, too. lots of clouds but you can see some thin spots, where we're getting the sunshine. that will lead to more heating and possibly some thunderstorms today. if you don't see it today, this hot, humid air comes into play for tomorrow. it will give us another chance of some showers and thunderstorms. right now, most of the activity is to the west but we are starting to see a few isolated light showers, beginning of the
shower activity for this afternoon. the hour by hour future cast shows 5:00 this afternoon, a possibility of storms rolling through. by later in the evening, 8:00 most of the storms will be out of here. then our attention turns to this approaching cold front. before the colder air comes in behind it really won't be all that cold we get the warm muggy air ahead of it and that's what we'll feel for tomorrow. for today, mainly cloudy skies. some breaks of sunshine. then we're watching for storms this afternoon, heavy downpours, strong gusty winds are a possibility today with temperatures in the 80s. tomorrow, into the 90s. just the low 90s, but the humidity will be higher so it's going to feel hotter tomorrow afternoon. and during the afternoon hours, good chance we will see more showers and thunderstorms. and the possibility of storms will stay with us for wednesday and thursday. not quite as hot wednesday afternoon, near the 90 degree mark. 87 on thursday. then that cold front comes through, we start drying out for friday and you can see the morning temperatures in the 60s.
