Happy birthday to Connie Chung, who turned 62 on Wednesday. Her dragon lady eye-makeup and softball-style of journalism has made us squirm over the years, yet we can’t help but love her. For a long time, she seemed to be the only dignified Asian figure on television. She was not only drop-dead gorgeous, but she kicked ass in her profession, becoming the second woman to co-anchor the evening news (after Barbara Walters). Connie spawned a whole generasian of imitators, but she remains an untouchable icon (not to mention drop-dead gorgeous, decades younger-looking than 62, and chic as all get out). We also love that, despite her beauty and achievements, she still possesses some endearing, cuddly qualities, like converting to Judaism for hubby Maury Povich–which makes her Chewish–and poking fun at herself.
