Back in September, I taped a segment for the Dr. Oz Show.
It hasn’t aired yet, and I’m not sure when it’s going to air.
The build up to that show was pretty huge for me.
I hadn’t ever done anything like that before.
It was exciting and I was nervous.
I’m not really supposed to talk about the show until it has an air date.
So all I will say is that the amount of time I will be on camera will probably be less than 15 seconds.
It was a little disappointing, but it was still a pretty cool experience.
Today I taped another segment for the Dr. Oz Show.
I’m not really supposed to say anything about this one until we know the air date either.
But going into it, I was told it would be different than the last time.
It wasn’t really all that different.
There were several bloggers there.
A couple of them got their hair and makeup done.
They looked great. Their hair was thick and styled and their makeup was flawless.
And they were interviewed individually on camera by Dr. Oz.
But not me.
I may see ten seconds of air time.
Which is fine, because I looked like shit with the circles under my eyes and my limp, lifeless, unstyled hair.
The blog wasn’t mentioned and I didn’t get the exposure that I thought I might.
It was still fun, but I was pretty disappointed again.
In fact, for a few minutes, I might have thrown a little bit of a silent temper tantrum.
After we were all done taping, we walked downstairs to the lobby of ABC Studios.
I really had to pee.
There was a big line for the bathroom, but I had to go really badly.
So I got in line and waited.
And then when I was about four people from getting to the bathroom door, a producer from the show came up to me.
“Do you live in the New York City area?” she asked me.
I told her I lived about an hour away in Connecticut.
“Is there any chance you’d be able to come back to the show next Tuesday?” she asked.
Oh my God.
They were specifically asking for me.
It was the break and exposure I’d been waiting for!
“Sure!” I told the producer.
“Great!” she said. “Would you be willing to do an anti-aging segment?” she asked.
“Do I look like I need an anti aging segment?” I asked.
“And would you say your hair is…thinning?” she asked.
“Yes, I suppose I would,” I answered.
I’m going back next week.
Not exactly for the reason I’d been hoping, but I’m not going to complain.
Because all that time I spent sulking about no hair or makeup or one-on-one time with Dr. Oz?
Well it looks like I just might get it, not in spite of, but thanks to my wrinkles.
And thinning hair.
And this time, they’re sending a car to come pick me up 😀
Thank you for making me Number 1!
