Dear Viewers,

This photo will take you deep, deep, deep behind the scenes at our show.

This is Bella on our “On the Record” set. I don't know her last name. In fact, I never met her before last night. Her mother had sent me an e-mail saying she is a fan of the show and I responded that the family should stop by sometime and see the show live. And they did, Thursday night.

After the show I seated Bella in my chair for this photo. She loved it. I fed her a few lines like, “I am Bella reporting live from Washington, D.C." and she performed them masterfully. She is good!

Then I wondered, with all the emphasis on getting younger people on TV, am I in trouble?


P.S. I'm very flattered by Bella's interest.

Do you have something you'd like to say to Greta? Please write to her at!

And watch On the Record with Greta Van Susteren weeknights at 10 p.m. ET
