Several weeks ago I went down to Orlando to join The Balancing Act on their road show. We had originally talked about me doing one segment for the show, but when I got down there, the director said she had snagged an interview for me with Suede, an uber-cool fashion designer who had been on season five of Project Runway. I happen to love that show and adore Suede and was very excited about the interview.

I was also very nervous. Although I have done a fair amount of TV, I am used to being the interviewee, not the interviewer. Plus we had a very, VERY limited time to do the interview.

Being the consummate professional that I am, though, I quickly memorized my questions, turned to the camera,
and flubbed his introduction.
12 Times.

The problem was Project Runway. Not the show itself, but the name. For some reason, being nervous on camera turned me into Elmer Fudd. Each time I started the segment, I said,
“I’m here with Suede from season five of Pwoject Wunway.”
12 Times.

The crew was really great and supportive. Each time I had to do it again, they would say,
“OK, Weddy Twacy?”

Eventually I got it right, and we were able to tape the segment. I think it came out good but I really won’t know until it airs tomorrow. You’ll have to watch it for me and let me know. I won’t be able to watch it… I’ll be out hunting wabbits.

*TO SEE MY INTERVIEW WITH SUEDE AND SOME OTHER FUN STUFF, WATCH ME TOMORROW AT 7AM ON THE BALANCING ACT ON LIFETIME TELEVISION!!
