The world of TV has its ups and downs. There are cancellations and renewals. I have lived through both. In the past month, I have been approached by three different tv shows. It has been thrilling to have multiple conversations at the same time with various production companies. Well, one has emerged the victor.
I will begin taping on Tuesday, September 15th. I know, I know.
I was told on Friday they would be making an offer and was I available. Well, yes EXCEPT for a booksigning and a dinner event – both part of Fearless America Tour in Minneapolis, MN – my home state.
So of course, lawyer leaves multiple messages and emails during the booksigning – natch. Then, the deal is being completed during the dinner event – of course. When it rains, it pours. I did stay focus on the people at hand and the task before me: these folks were having dinner with me to spend time with me. That’s code for: COACH ME!
And I did. With my phone buzzing turning bright blue while stuck in my bra strap. Yes, it’s true. I did stick it there for ease.
Anywhoo, I landed tonight back in Denver. Now I am calmly, but with great speed, packing my car – stuffing it really with whatever I find – shoes, earrings, spanxs (teehee). I’m off in the morning driving toward LA. Hoping to arrive by noon on Monday since I think it would be a good idea to meet the crew before I start shooting with them the next day. Just a thought.
Be on the lookout on my Twitter for clues as to what I am up to during this new adventure. Here’s to changing lives on television once again. Stay tuned.
