Look Ma! I’m On TV!

A few days ago while on Facebook I saw some pictures posted on our local Daytime Ottawa talk show page. Daytime Ottawa is hosted by the awesome duo of TL Rader and Derick Fage and the pictures were of various guest hosts who had filled in. As soon as I saw them I immediately emailed the show producer Erin Lannan and offered my services should they ever need a future guest host.

Well just this past week I get a dm on twitter from Erin asking if I would be available to guest host the following day, and without even knowing if I have a babysitter or not, of course I said yes! This was kind of a big deal for me given that my dream job is either hosting my own show or being a correspondent on Entertainment Tonight Canada, so of course there was no way I was giving up this opportunity! And I’ve been on Daytime enough times to know that it’s a totally fun show and the hosts are incredibly nice so I was really looking forward to it.

So after I secure someone to take care of my kids (thanks to my brother in-law for becoming a teacher thus ensuring his summer days are free to rescue me when I need an emergency sitter) and to my sister for coming over to help me sort through the piles of black tank tops that I own to pick just the right one for the show, I was ready!

Daytime host Derick Fage was amazing and made sure that I didn’t fall on my face during the show. It amazes me how easy he makes it look, so I just tried to follow his lead and not embarrass myself. And how lucky was I that the 1 show I guest host on we had 3 kitchen segments – so not only do I get to co-host the show but I also got to drink wine and eat! This is the best job ever!

A big thank you to the crew at Rogers Daytime Ottawa for bearing with me and being so nice to me and also to Erin Lannan and Derick Fage for making sure I didn’t look silly! I was only sad that I didn’t get to see the always lovely TL Rader but I’m hoping that Erin will one day let me guest host with her so that we can do an all Royals/Fashion/Fascinator show. Oh the fun!

I'm just a girl with a love of celebrity gossip who has a lot to say. I'm a wife and mother of 4 who loses herself daily in the lives of the rich, famous and beautiful! I love to travel and I'm not afraid to admit that I long for the day when all of my kids will be in school so I can get some sort of life back. I blame my obsession on all things celebrity on Dylan McKay and Brenda Walsh. If you don't know who they are I'm not sure we can be friends.
