Suze Orman Undergoes Emergency Appendectomy

orman_6-7.jpgCNBC host and personal finance expert Suze Orman underwent emergency appendectomy surgery on Sunday.

“Suze went to Chicago to celebrate her birthday and didn’t expect to leave her appendix behind,” a CNBC spokesperson tells TVNewser. “Northwestern Hospital took great care of her. It was a great team of doctors and a successful surgery. She will be recuperating in Florida.”

Orman had been scheduled to appear on a “Women and Finance” panel at the 92nd Street Y in Manhattan on Wednesday, but had to abruptly cancel (“Today” Financial Editor Jean Chatzky fills in). No word on when she’ll be back in the studio for CNBC.

As far as cable news appendectomies go, Orman’s in interesting company. FNC’s Glenn Beck had his appendix removed after an attack back in November and Keith Olbermann had his removed in 2007.

Suze Orman: Model of Leadership Skills?

orman_5-14.jpgThe Harvard Business Reviews’ Imagining the Future of Success explains that good leaders have to navigate conflicting notions of being both tough and empathetic.

So what public figure successfully accomplishes it? CNBC’s Suze Orman, apparently:

If there’s any secret sauce to leadership, we believe it’s the mix of intentions at the root of Orman’s success, a combination of high standards and shameless devotion. For many leaders, achieving this mix is impossible without giving up some comforting aspect of their existing public image. The nice ones will have to risk looking mean, and the hard ones will have to risk looking soft. But on the other side of these exposing positions is the chance to achieve a leader’s most fundamental task — to unleash the talent of the people around them.

Plus, I mean, she knows how to dress.

So “Out” They’re In

Several tvnewsers made the “Out” magazine Power 50 list — and some of them aren’t even out.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper is #3, same spot as last year; MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow is #4, also the same as last year; CNBC’s Suze Orman is #27, down from #22 last year.

‘Suze Orman’ Turns 8

CNBC host and personal finance advice-giver Suze Orman celebrates the eighth anniversary of “The Suze Orman Show” tonight at 9pmET. Orman, who launched the call-in show in 2002. also appeared on CNN’s “Your $$$$$” today with Ali Velshi.

WhoopiJoyBW_9.24.JPG

“The View” co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and Barabara Walters celebrate Behar’s new HLN show at the Plaza Hotel last night.

The famed Oak Room at New York’s Plaza Hotel was the setting for a party last night to celebrate the launch of HLN’s “The Joy Behar Show“, premiering Tuesday at 9pmET. The party, thrown by Behar’s “The View” co-host Barbara Walters, was packed with boldface names from news and entertainment and from all the networks.

In introducing Behar, Walters joked about her new show, “We originally thought it was going to go to Starr Jones. Then we were sure it was going to be Rosie [O'Donnell]. But finally, finally it is Joy.”

Behar thanked Walters and her “new boss” at HLN, CNN Worldwide EVP, Ken Jautz. “He found me. I was a poor little girl on a network show, trying to get a word in edgewise.”

Behar tells us she is a little nervous, but more excited about the new show. Her first guest, was Johnny Carson‘s last guest: Bette Midler.

Behar’s soon to be HLN colleagues were all there: Nancy Grace, Jane Velez-Mitchell and A.J. Hammer. CNN anchors Larry King, Anderson Cooper, T.J. Holmes, and Ali Velshi. CNN correspondents Alina Cho, Jason Carroll, Suzanne Malveaux (up from D.C. for U.N. week), and Jeanne Moos.

From NBC Hoda Kotb and Dawn Fratangelo; soon to be Fox Business host John Stossel, Judge Jeanine Pirro, Joan Rivers the Rev. Al Sharpton, Vera Wang, Lorraine Bracco and Alan Alda.

Behar’s “The View” co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg were on hand. From CNN and CBS News Erica Hill, and her Saturday “Early Show” co-anchor Chris Wragge and his WCBS co-anchor, and former MSNBC anchor, Kristine Johnson

CNN executives Jim Walton, Ken Jautz, Susan Grant and Jon Klein.

We’d just arrived when guest Suze Orman began telling us her concern that there’s something fishy about losing her once-commanding lead our GMA co-anchor off. “It’s physically impossible to gain that much,” said Orman of the lead now held by Ashleigh Banfield.

• More pictures after the jump and Monday on TVNewser, an interview with Behar and Jautz…
