Local Celebrity

And no, this blog is NOT about me.

Tonight was the season premiere of Celebrity Apprentice. It just so happens that one of my very good friends, Jennie, is on the show and so I have been excitedly waiting to be able to see her in all her glory. I have a special love affair with reality t.v. and it brings me great pleasure when I get to curl up on the couch in my comfy house clothes and just enjoy rotting my brain to the fullest. And now there is someone I actually know in real life…priceless!

Well, this evening when I arrived home I had a message from the local news station here in Tucson. They said they wanted to ask me a couple questions about Jennie and her being on the show. You see, Jennie is a celebrity here. I mean, I guess she is pretty well known throughout the country and possibly even the world, but here she is IT. Lindsay Lohan would have some stiff competition if she moved to Tucson. So because I have such a kind and helpful heart, I decided to call back and give them whatever quote they were looking for.

That’s how I ended up on the 10 o’clock news. Not only is Jennie herself big news, but her childhood friend sitting at home on a Thursday night watching Jennie on T.V. is also somehow newsworthy. So I was forced out of my normal T.V. watching comfort zone…for goodness sakes I put on real clothes, did my hair, and wore makeup, all the while trying to make my apartment look camera ready…in the name of being a loyal friend. And when I called Jennie to beg her to be a supportive cast member to this impromptu gathering, she would have none of it. I suppose she is letting the fame go to her head. :)

That's cool that your friends fame spilled to you. Yeah, I used to a reality show junkie in college. I wanted to be on then. I liked the idea of seeing how people relate in those various kinds of situations. So congratulations to your friend and you.

Hilarious! I could imagine it in my head right now....

You, all alone, looking fabulous as you stare at your 26-inch television and laugh to yourself. Priceless!

I love you.

I hope you at least taped your news moment. I'm with Bianca..the visual in my head of you all dolled up in your apt watching your TV makes me laugh out loud. If they only knew....

How cool! I hope she wins. I hadn't even realized it was back on TV so I'll be sure to check it out next week.
