Real 'Blind Side' Heroine Headed Here

| No Comments | No TrackBacks


Leigh Anne Tuohy, the real-life inspiration behind "The Blind Side," whose portrayal in the film by Sandra Bullock won the actress the Oscar, will be in Chicago Wednesday.
Tuohy will be in the vicinity of 225 N. Michigan Ave, 1 to 2 p.m. and 4 to 5 p.m. as part of a nationwide bus tour promoting her new GMC-TV reality show, "Family Addition with Leigh Anne Ruohy."
GMC will be rebranded at UP beginning June 1, and this is also a joint project with ASPiRE, the African-American-target network from Magic Johnson Enterprises.
Tuohy's new program will be launched in June on UP -- originally six, one-hour episodes following the lives of families who have been fostering children and are on the verge of adopting one or more of them.
That mirrors the real-life experience of Tuohy's family who fostered, then adopted Michael Oher, who went on to become a star player on the Baltimore Ravens.
