When Kathy mentioned that she wanted to visit my hometown of Tracy, CA, I got so excited, but then reality set in!
Tracy is a small town in Northern California and it's not a normal stop for celebrities. I knew it would definitely be an adventure for all of us. Kathy loves to stay at fancy hotels, but of course Tracy doesn't have any, so we ended up staying at a local motel. It wasn't exactly the Four Seasons!
As soon as we checked in Kathy was ready to come home. She was shocked to find cows outside her window when she went to open it up for fresh air. It wasn't so fresh! Welcome to Tracy!
I had no idea what was planned for Tracy, so I was shocked to find out that I was receiving an award from the city. There was a ceremony when we got there (that wasn't aired) that had yummy BBQ from a local place that I used to eat at all the time. Mmmm ... All-day BBQ! The cook even put Kathy to work! I never thought I would see the day when Kathy would serve me food. My press tour, if you would call it that, was fun.
The reporter from Good Morning Sacramento asked us to dance with him and he was the only one that could hear music in his ear piece, so that is why I look like a dork when we were dancing. I swear I have rhythm! The Great Plate is a fine establishment that my friends and I visit whenever I go to town. What you saw on TV is pretty much what happens whenever I go there, but less drinks are spilt. Just so you know, no Chanel coats were injured during that taping.
Can we talk about the chicken incident for a minute??? I had NO IDEA that was going to happen, so that look on my face was genuine. I was so honored to have such a fancy party thrown for me and I obviously didn't know what we were getting into. I think Kathy thought it would be boring, but Tracy never fails and always makes things interesting. I think Kathy made a lasting impression on the town.
That's the most action it has seen in a long time and I am glad Kathy helped me put it on the map, although I don't think she'll be going back for a visit anytime soon.
