When I was a little girl, many many bras ago, my grandmother and I would watch Regis and Katie Lee in the mornings before I left for school. My grandmother thought Regis was hilarious but couldn’t understand what the heck Kathie Lee was talking about most days. However, I have awesome memories of watching that with my grandma and being excited to see what celebrity they interviewed next.
Now, twenty years later, I find myself being drawn back to the world of Kathie Lee Gifford, but this time she is on the 4th hour of the Today show with Hoda Kotb. I watched for the first time a few weeks ago and I was sucked in. There is seriously a morning talk show where the hosts drink wine as the talk about entertainment, celebrities, trends and life. How did I not know about this before???
And yes, I find myself experiencing the same thoughts my grandmother had years ago, “What the heck is Kathie Lee talking about?” but yet, I still watch. I watch because it’s a show that never takes itself seriously. It is like this blog, just in television form.
With that in mind, I’ve decided I have a goal. My goal is to share a drink with Kathie Lee and Hoda sometime in the next 6 months on air. Crazy, I know!
Why? Because funny people want other funny people to find them funny. I want them to say I’m funny. I have no book to promote, no product to sell. I just want them to drink wine with them and maybe talk about how I once walked around an entire day, unbeknownst to me, with a large Hello Kitty sticker on my ass and no one told me. Maybe they’ll even say they want to drink wine with me. I’d probably spill all over myself if that actually happened. I’ll have to remember to wear polyester so it doesn’t stain.
Am I insane? Probably. Will it happen? Probably not. But damn, I’m about to flood their Twitter, Facebook and such with my plea…. Though, I’m hoping I don’t get a knock on the door because I have a restraining order against me…
Got any ideas on how to make it happen???11 Comments
