I am on The View again!!! Thursday July 27th.

If you guys missed my bedroom tech segment on THE VIEW Monday, here is the play-by-play...

I leave the charity event in the high desert abotu 20 minutes late and HGTV was kind enough to get me a driver to take me to the airport. Tehy must know that I am ALWAYS late and a driver barely guarantees timeliness, but works most of the time. So i get into this unassuming black car to be taken to LAX and since we are a touch late, the driver takes off like a bat out of hell. He's driving a towncar, not an ambulance with lights on! But that didn't stop him. And even with a seatbelt on, I felt like my organs were jostling around to remind myself that I am a complete fool. Needless to say, the driver was sweating a lot and crazy because he was LATE to pick me up and then tried to make-up the time while avoiding an accident and getting me to the airport. We made it and I actually made it on the plane! Unscathed for the most part...

I arrived at ABC studios ready to shoot at the buttcrack of dawn (4 AM PST), 7 am EST and went straight to rehearsal. But before I got to the studio, ABC was kind enough to send me a car to take me to the studio, and since I got the call to come down at 7, I got downstairs 5 minutes later, and the dispatcher calls over on the walkie-talkie and tells the driver to scold me and say 'the call for the ride was at 7! not 7:05!'. Way to start a morning!

I got on set, did my rehearsal and wore cute shorts to the set. Standing there with about 30 people screaming at each other, wondering what the hell was going on was nerve wrecking. Not only do they like to keep the temperture of the studio at 50 degrees, but there are a whole bunch of people and most likely, they were all union. That means, one guy can only talk ot this person to give orders, then that person calls another person who talks to another guy. there is no cutting out the middle man here, the whole show is run by middle men and I became one of them for a whopping 10 minutes!

Then out of nowhere it was time. It was time to do my segment. I walked out back into the ice chest of a studio, met Elisabeth Hasselback and Kelli Pickler and boom! We were live! Now I don't know how it happened, but I talked about these items: The snore stopper (watch-like product that sends safe electronic pulses to make you move and stop snoring), the popular Bright Light Feet slippers (slippers with flashlights at the tip), Waxless Sensor candles (LED candles), Double-Up for Beds Sheets, Outdoor canopy bed, and the Seura Mirror TV. And before I know it, 7 minutes had passed and I had finished my segment on the show.

It went well. the Producer came to find me afterwards and told me I did a great job. Then she told me there was another tech expert they brought onto the show who used to always shake like jello when he was on the show (she wouldn't divulge his name to me :( ) and she told him he did a GREAT job. And then she said, but you did a really great job. At this point I don't know how to take this compliment...

But since I am getting invited back to be on the show again this Thursday, the 27th, well, I guess I did all right!

Watch me again on The View Thursday July 27th on ABC mornings.

The View Monday!!!!

Yes I have seen a lot of movies and have A LOT to report, but more importantly, I will make my first appearance on THE VIEW Monday, July 17th live on ABC!!!! yeah!!!!!

They are flying me out Sunday and waking me at 3 am PST (6 am EST which in NY is reasonable...i guess!) Monday for a live appearance where I will discuss bedroom tech - safe for network television, that that means no Pleasure Chest items, sorry die hards! The products will be fun and my favorite is an LCD TV that when turned off, looks like a mirror. Well with an entra $10K, that mirror and LCD can be your's too!

Ok I have to go pack and kill myself with my nerves. Even if I kstutter and blow it, watch and send some good vibes my way. OMG!!! I am going to be a guest on THE VIEW!!!!! Check your local listings.

charity event

hi everyone! Sunday, July 16th from 11 am-5 pm, if you all have no plans and are in the LA-ish area, why not hop in your car and come to The Catalyst Foundation's Art and Gourmet Show? I will be MCing the art auction. Come and see me underwhelm an entire crowd instead of just your tv screens-LIVE! Or if you can't make it to the lunch, just come for the show. The tickets for the entire event are $55, but just $10 for the art show.

The art show consists of many great artists that have works that range from painting to photography to sculpture. And are you guys aware of how art programs are used as a type of therapy for seniors, prisoners and the mentally challenged? I used to volunteer at a gallery that aided the latter in using art as a form of expression. Many of the mentally challenged artists in the program made some of the most amazing works. And in this show, I think they may have a couple unique pieces created by prisoners.

The Catalyst Foundation is a non-profit that raises money to help at-risk youths with programs that build their self-esteem, build awareness for their environment, and help those afflicted with AIDS living in the Lancaster/Palmdale area.

Yes I know it is Africa hot out there, but come on, it's for the kids. I know they are trying to sell a number of tix, but the number they have sold isn't so high just yet. So I am hoping to help them get some people out! Hope to see someone there! ;) Come up and say hi too.
