The 54 years Hollywood actress and producer has been named editor-at-large of a new baby boomer site on The Huffington Post. "Huff/Post 40," which is set to launch in August 2011. The site will focus on life of men and women after 40 and it will be "both about news and about people sharing their own experiences about that stage in life." The founder, president and editor-in-chief of AOL Huffington Post Media Group Arianna Huffington said, "We are thrilled that Rita is joining us.
Calling the site 'Huff/Post 40' was her idea. Her belief that it's never too late to follow your dreams makes her the perfect godmother for Huff/Post 40 as it takes shape." She believes that Wilson's Greek heritage will help her to set the experience of over 40 aged's life up to value aging as a process that brings wisdom and new possibilities.
Willson says, "The idea that we boomers are somehow supposed to wind things down as we get older has completely escaped me. It's never too late to mix things up, change your life, to get to what you really should be doing -- or want to be doing. I can't wait to get started."
She is an actress of several movies and acted on television and on Broadway. She is also a story writer on style and health for O, The Oprah Magazine and Harper's Bazaar as an editor since 2006. We hope her vision and direction for the new site would bring something extra-ordinary for us.
