It was at Spike TV’s Guys Choice Awards–a slight step down from the Academy Awards.
But I guess Sandy felt it was finally time to face the world with a mixture of gratitude and humor, and this op came up, so she showed up.
And, like the charmer she is, Sandy managed to get in a joke about her explosive personal life and also to lay on a whole bunch of sincerity abut the importance of the armed forces, seeing as she was receiving the Troops Choice award for Entertainer of the Year. (I guess The Blind Side has helped them get through the Iraq experience. I doubt that The Proposal has.)
Best of all, she was wise enough not to then look back on the horror of Nazi Germany and the paraphernalia that showed up on her husband’s girlfriend.
