GRAND FORKS (WDAZ-TV) - Grand Forks Herald columnist and recent Internet sensation Marilyn Hagerty's star status hasn't faded just yet.

Sources at the Herald say Marilyn is currently in discussions with publisher Harper Collins about a book in collaboration with celebrity chef and TV star Anthony Bourdain.

Bourdain is known for his "Kitchen Confidential" book and popular Travel Channel series "No Reservations."

Marilyn talked a little bit about that in a video blog that will be played at a Las Vegas bloggers' convention this weekend.

"You think it's all over when you're 85. Well I guess not because everything has just kind of gone crazy," Hagerty said.

“The Internet craze was one thing, but people have really taken notice of what Marilyn is all about,” Herald Editor Mary Jo Hotzler said. “She’s all about something good and something real.

There are also plans for Marilyn to travel to New York next month to do more work with Anderson Cooper.
