Got up bright and early to talk about the 2015 Emmy Awards on Good Morning Texas and BOY was I nervous! Mostly because I stayed up late WATCHING the Emmys, which is probably why I had a massive brain fart just before we went live and forgot Peter Facinelli’s name. Luckily, I remembered all of the other Texas Connections, of which there were several on Emmy night. Here’s a link to the video if you missed it and thanks to Jane McGarry and everyone at Good Morning Texas for having me on! http://www.wfaa.com/videos/entertainment/television/programs/good-morning-texas/2015/09/21/72566108/ Continue reading →
I was on Good Morning Texas again Friday, talking about the fun and off-the-beaten-path events I’ve been finding around North Texas. Did you hear about the Pancake Selfie Express Truck that was in Pegasus Plaza last week? They were taking pictures of people, then scanning them onto pancakes so you could actually eat your face! I don’t know whose warped idea this was but I LOVE it!
Sadly, the Pancake Selfie Express has already left town but there are loads of other cool events you should be checking out. Here are some links to tickets if you’re interested and you can watch me on Out & About by clicking HERE: Continue reading →
I taped this “Out & About” segment for Good Morning Texas when I was there last week (which explains why I’m wearing the same clothes). Honestly, I had NO IDEA what to do with my hands. You can tell, can’t you? I asked the cameraman what I should do with them and he looked over the rims of his glasses at me, like I’d just blown a booger onto his shoe. Maybe I’ll try holding random objects each week, like a Rubix Cube or some My Little Pony figurines, just to keep my hands busy. If you’d like to watch this segment, you can do so by clicking HERE.
One of the coolest things happening this week will be Wednesday night when Michael McDonald comes to town. My favorite Michael McDonald is the one who shows up occasionally on Family Guy, like this:
The REAL Michael McDonald is playing a show at the House of Blues Wednesday night to raise money for OPERATION Finally Home. It’s an organization that builds homes for sick or wounded veterans. They hope to raise enough money from this concert to build two more houses. Click HERE for more details or to buy tickets.
I need to say a quick THANK YOU to Veecaravan for always providing me with the best accessories. They’re having a Pop-Up Shop in a few weeks so make sure you check it out. Personally, I’m snagging more kaftans because they’re gorgeous but feel like you’re wearing pajamas in public, which is what I’d prefer to do anyhow. Click HERE to see what else they’ll be selling.
I started a new segment on Good Morning Texas this week called “Out & About.” It’s a collection of fun upcoming events and I THINK it’s going to be a regular thing. I taped another one for next Friday so pretend you don’t notice that I’m wearing the same clothes. You can watch the first Out and About by clicking the link below.
If you’re interested in any of the events listed, here are some links for more details.

Quick thanks to Kyle Tatum at Blow Salon for the fresh cut and summer highlights. If you’re in the market for a new hair-stylist, you should definitely hit Kyle up. YES, you have to schedule your appointments months in advance but he’s beyond great and totally worth it. I love everyone at Blow but London Michael is also one of my favorites. It doesn’t hurt that both of these men are sweet, gorgeous and have a wicked sense of humor. Go when you can drink some wine while getting your hair did.
I was running late for my “Good Morning Texas” appearance this morning, plus I had my daughters with me, since they’re out of school. We were sitting in stand-still traffic when Lucy noticed that a May Fly was on the seat right next to her. Nonstop shrieking and thrashing ensued, which is always great when you’re stressed out and running late. I finally had to remove my shoe, lean as far as I could into the backseat, and squash it with my heel. That pretty much set the stage for the rest of the morning.
Click HERE to see my review of Jurassic World, and THANKS AGAIN to everyone at “Good Morning Texas” for having me on. I hope they invite me back!
Thanks also to my friend Meredith Yates with Stella & Dot for providing my accessories today. I got so many compliments on that awesome necklace!
I was TERRIFIED about being on TV today but I think it went pretty well. I DID say “disingenuine” which I’m pretty sure isn’t even a word, but I held it together otherwise. Thanks again to Christine Visneau of Veecaravan for outfitting me and to everyone at Good Morning Texas for having me on. I’ll be back next month to review Jurassic World and I heard they might have something fun/scary in store!
I’m going to be on on Good Morning Texas tomorrow to talk about movies and I’m pretty freaked out about it. I’m worried about looking fat on TV, which is stupid because I’m not exactly skinny to begin with. I don’t know why I expect to go on camera and suddenly look 20 pounds lighter but that’s exactly what I hope for.
I should know better because I spent a year doing movie segments on TV and I know the reality. Even if I don’t look fat, something’s going to be jacked up. It might be a weird clump of hair that’s sticking up or maybe zombie bags under my eyes. One time, the long necklace I was wearing draped around one of my boobs, like a sling. No matter how much I prepared, something would always be out-of-whack. Continue reading →
