Tracy Grimshaw has just interviewed Ellen DeGeneres for A Current Affair on the Nine Network in Australia. It was frank, funny and fascinating. She has interviewed many famous people: so many that she has become famous herself.
You see, there is something about Tracy Grimshaw: something special. She has been involved in Australian television for 32 years. She is one of the most well-known faces. But, there is something about Tracy that DeepWord has found that probably tells her story better than before.
We wanted to analyze Tracy’s words through DeepWord. But, which words? There were a few interview transcripts in which she spoke about herself, but we wanted something special. Something that seemed to capture the heart of the woman.
Then we struck gold.
It was staring us in the face. Tracy was verbally attacked by Gordon Ramsey in 2009. Tracy responded on A Current Affair a couple of days later. There was something about her words that asked to be more deeply understood. So, we gave them to DeepWord.
In a second or two DeepWord told us that, in her rebuttal of Ramsey, she focused on analyzing and deciding. (I would have been focused on screaming and kicking, but that’s not Tracy’s style.) So, at that very difficult moment, her mind was at work much more than her heart.
Her Silent Stance was partly closed. There’s nothing negative we can take from that. She was speaking her mind: take it or leave it.
It was all in her mood.
Next, DeepWord characterized the mood of her response. Against his rudeness, DeepWord found Tracy’s language was attentive, unyielding and influential.
You see, Tracy Grimshaw nailed Ramsey with her mood. It was a pure, professional punch from a real person who’d felt miserable after his attack. Tracy appears to be someone in possession of herself, elegant and poised.
Next, DeepWord worked Deep Down to find the undercurrents and motivations that enabled Tracy to speak with such strength. Strikingly, DeepWord says she was being distant, deliberate and determined.
In difficult and demanding circumstances, Tracy Grimshaw came up trumps. She deals with the toughs and the rumbles on a live, current affairs show that airs five nights a week. When someone attacked her, Tracy showed a grace and dignity that the rest of us can only marvel at.
So, there we have it. DeepWord says that Tracy Grimshaw speaks with her own voice.
Her finesse couldn’t help but impress. She brought the abuse into her own realm, her own area of strength, and called it for what it was. Gordon Ramsey suddenly seemed like a wobbly toy on the dashboard of a car. And, Tracy was in the driver’s seat.
But, Tracy’s words did more than explain. They showed us how to be unafraid of people like Gordon Ramsey.
