Macho Men

This morning, I am sitting outside watching the workmen move lumber around. I’ve been watching the HGTV shows and it’s incredible that actual workmenworking on YOUR project have no correlation to the tv shows.I am laughingto myself as I type this, because,if a television camera were focused onthese guys now…lol. The house is taking shape,the rafters are in place and we are waiting forDad to come down to be with us so he can see what’s going on too.The oneguy lifting boards stops and rearranges them, then counts them, then…youget my drift. ...more

Reality TV & Social Media: Are Bling Ring Teens Now Tweet/Like/Steal Thieves?

When I was in middle school, shoplifting was a twisted rite of passage for my friends. We were full of angst and surrounded by deep desire for the cool makeup, clothes and accessories (translation: the cool lives) we saw in Seventeen magazine. Those consumer desires met deeper desires for excitement and acceptance. Obviously a bad choice, shoplifting was the consumer version of our eating disorders and drug experiments, yielding us the coveted goods while letting us feel as powerful as we imagined sex would someday be. Our hauls were thrilling and nauseating, secrets that usually stayed hidden in the bottom of our lockers until thrown away....more

Whatcha Talkin' Bout Willis?

I have a friend in Public Relations that likes to throw my writing out to different publishers and casting directors when projects come across his desk.  He called me last night to say that there is a new reality television pilot being cast that is looking for women in New York and surrounding areas who have successful careers, children, friends and spouses, and are navigating through the "have it all" scenario.  He sent her my information and blog link and she wanted to talk to me....more

Friday!!! and Another Late Bachelorette Recap

It's Friday and thank goodness! This week was quite an interesting one for me with the whole two weeks notice thing. But no more feelings of sadness or uneasiness here for me, that is for sure. I won't go into that much, but let's just say that watching the movie Horrible Bosses last night was very apropos. It had just happened to come in on Kevin's Netflix and I will say it was really funny. And boy oh boy, did I ever need a laugh! ...more

A Bit on The Bachelorette, Episode 3

So today is Friday (yay!) and the Bachelorette aired way back on Monday, and I just cannot find the energy to write a complete recap. So If you watched the show, this stuff will make sense to you. If you didn't watch it, then not so much (and what is wrong with you? Why don't you feel the need to waste time watching junk on TV?). Anywho, here are some thoughts ...more

I Fell Into Reality Television

My very good friend, Diane, recommended Blog Her to me.  We have known each other since we met on the set of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EMHE) season one.  As this is my first post I wanted to introduce myself. I am a wife and mother of three children (ages 15, 11 and 9) and I currently work as Art Director or Production Designer for reality television design shows.  One day I was doing interior design and art commissions out of my home and after sending an email to Ty Pennington I found myself working for EMHE.  Strange and simple really....more
