This is a woman with ambition in her eyes. Donia Tusk makes no qualms about having those eyes trained on the job of Charlene Bamforth, a lady featured only two days ago in this series.
“To say there is an ‘All About Eve’ vibe on the set is an understatement,” Ms. Tusk admits gleefully.
She is of course referring to the 1950 film starring Bette Davis and Anne Baxter about an ingenue who insinuates herself into the life of an aging actress, undermining the established older woman with tales of melancholy and woe. The film was nominated for 14 academy awards, with both women in the running for best actress. They sadly lost to Judy Holliday in “Born Yesterday” but the film won in the categories of best picture and best director.
“Although, ‘The Clouds of Sils Maria’ is a more contemporary example that examines the same themes,” offers Ms. Tusk softly, lost her own thought cloud.
Ms. Tusk holds a Broadcast Journalism degree from General University with a concentration in Medieval Studies and Children's Television. She earned her Certificate of Meteorology from The Weather Channel State College.
When she's not watching movies about competitive women, you will find Ms. Tusk at the gym, working her core and upper body. It keeps her fit for her on camera weather segments and the all-women dancing troupe that promotes sisterhood and empowerment, of which she is a member.
“We participate in parades, about 60 of us each time, dancing in unison and in risqué costumes,” she purrs.
Since Ms. Tusk still lives at home, all of her meals are prepared by her mother.
"I don't have time right now to think about domestic issues," she says, "I have to concentrate on my career."
