A few months ago I was contacted by TLC to be considered for their new show, My Collection Obsession (later changed to My Strange Obsession). I was referred by fellow blogger Ashley of Lisa Freemont Street, who also referred the fabulous Doris Mayday to the show scouts. I figured they would pick Doris for sure, so why bother right? I spoke with Doris about it because she is so friendly and open about it, and she said the scouts were talking to her but still considering other options because they were unsure what they wanted for the show. They said they wanted someone totally living in the 50s, like no internet, phone, etc. Obviously, no one really lives like that! But, I decided it wouldn't hurt to give it a shot, right? So they interviewed me over the phone and then asked that I make a 5 minute video to submit it to them. It was a busy week for us, but we did it quickly after work one night. We did it all in one take, even though a messed a few things up (I called the bathtub the stove-doh).
They ultimately emailed me back and said they went with Doris. They said it was because she is geographically closer to TLC in NYC. But I know it is because she is freakin' amazing, right? We are friends on facebook and she finds the coolest stuff out in the mid west! She also has a really unique paint theme in her house. I can't wait to see it all on the show!
So, since they won't be using me, I thought you all would enjoy to see the video! It is my very first YouTube video! Enjoy!
Make sure to catch the lovely Doris on TLC's My Strange Obsession and on Anderson Cooper promoting the show! I am sooooo excited for her and can't wait to see it! I will be DVRing this asap and you should too!
