Last week I was featured as a “Mom Blog We’re Following” on TheTalk, a CBS show that airs every weekday afternoon. I’m rarely home to watch at two in the afternoon, but if I am I tune in because it’s great. I love the show, because as Leah Remini, Sharon Osbourne, Sara Gilbert, Holly Robinson Peete and Julie Chen sit around the table during the opening segment of the show, it really feels like your having coffee with your mom girlfriends.
You know how it is with moms, probably none of you would probably be friends outside of mothering as that’s the only thing you have in common, but surprisingly you really enjoy each other’s company and more often than not you crack each other up? Yeah, that’s how The Talk is so when I was asked to create a 20 second video about why I like the show, that is what I wanted to say. I ended up saying it rather well in the finished product but man what it took to get there! I’ve compiled a little movie of all the mess ups. Take special note of my crazy Ramona Singer eyes, my porn star voice, my karate hands, the cute voice of my assistant asking if I’ve again used my crazy karate hands, my tiny talking head, the multiple hair tosses (sweet mother there could have just been a hair toss reel!), and of course my SUPER expressive eyes and voice. Hilarious moments all, but just so you know, I saved the best for last. Never fear, the finished product was in a different room with better light and not so much junk behind me! Live and learn.
