ABC News’ chief meteorologist took to social media Friday with an offering and a plea to her followers. While the 39-year-old wrote that she always appreciates the engagement and interaction on any and all posts, she’d like people to really take in the message she’s trying to get across.
Actress Pamela Jamil took to her Instagram writing that the keto diet “can create all kinds of disturbances for people's bodies.” When ABC’s Meteorologist Gingered went on the air to report on some dangerous weather, some viewers were more focused on other things.
It seems that Jannie C and a number of other viewers weren’t looking at the weather, but instead were focused on Zee’s chest, and they thought they saw her nipples poking through. The Good Morning America meteorologist shared a throwback photo of herself on Instagram Friday, accompanied by a lengthy caption.
The ABC News star continued, “It is #suicidepreventionweek, and I often wonder if there is anything I could go back and say to myself the morning I tried to take my own life. Beyond the luck, I had the support and financial ability to get the help I needed to treat my mental health issues.
She is also a meteorologist for Good Morning American and ABC World News Tonight. Her father loved the show as it helped him learn English.
