Enjoy The View

Andy prepares for his appearance on The View.

So I have been a little off kilter for the last 24 hours because I've been booked for a live appearance on the ladies' gabfest The View (live today) to bring some clips from our hit Outrageous and Contagious Viral Videos. Given that The View is it's very own hub of Viral Videos, I am a little verklempt at the notion of sitting with Star and Co. chit-chatting the morning away. I reacted first with amusement at the news that I'd been booked, but when I got home Monday night and poured myself a glass of wine, my pal Liza called. "You are going to be sitting with THE LADIES! You realize that, right? THE LADIES! And a STUDIO AUDIENCE!" I told her it was too much to think about and quickly got off the phone.

My doorbell rang and behind it stood my dinner companions, World of Wonder Superproducers Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey. When I told them the news they were FULL of bright ideas. "Here's what you need to do," Randy plotted. "Challenge them right there on live TV to make a viral video MOMENT that will be downloaded everywhere! Get Joy to bitchslap Star! Get Star to bitchslap Joy!" Oh man. A Challenge was hatched. A line was drawn. An opportunity was born. I pondered. I can't in good faith go on The View and throw a match to the Joy-Star "thing" and expect to be invited back, right?

I slept on it but in the light of day thought better of it. Yesterday was a flurry of pre-interviews thrown in with a few calls from friends who encouraged me to do something along the lines of what Randy suggested. Last night I went to a very nice, very adult book party for my friend Jon Alter's new Roosevelt opus "The Defining Moment: FDR's Hundred Days and the triumph of Hope" at the Upper West Side palace of CBS News' Harry Smith and Sportscaster Andrea Joyce. Summer for me is shaping up to be Roosevelt at the beach!

It was an "adult" party, one of those where I felt a little dumb, but smart enough to have known to wear a sportcoat. It was wine and fingery food and high ceilings and Ron Silver, Steve Kroft, Caroline Kennedy, Mary Alice Williams, Charles Grodin, Jeffrey Toobin, Frank Rich, Ken Auletta, and many, many other people talking about laws being passed or not passed in Europe and many media matters discussed and all more important things than my lame appearance on The View. And then, as luck would have it, Meredith Vieira walked in. This was my opportunity to get a leg up on my View experience! I hustled Andrea Joyce into an MV introduction. Andrea, always game for anything, graciously complied.

Upon meeting Vieira, I flashed back to a long-forgotten memory of fetching her coffee when she anchored the CBS Morning News. She'd forgotten, too, but we bonded anyway. She is cool and calm and in turn made me feel cool and calm about my impending View-dom. I am not going to do anything stupid simply so Meredith will not hate me.

Ask, Believe, Receive A Kiss From Andy

WWHL’s Research PA dishes on one seriously unique work week.

Hey guys! My name is Laura and I’m a Research Production Assistant here at WWHL. For the first 3 seasons on this unbeweavable show, I was the permanently glittered hands crafting the crazy fun props and prizes gifted to the guests. You name it, I’ve bedazzled it! (No but seriously: pacifier, pickle, ‘fro pick, condoms, whip, hookah, mannequin leg...the list goes on!) This past season, I closed down my crafting corner and now I have the pleasure of helping Megan, Christie, and Lindsey with research and interactive. Every night, I get to read all of your amazing questions for our guests and help make sure that Andy’s got a stellar selection on his cards. But who cares about me?! On to this crazy week of shows!

Sunday: Kim and Reza did NOT disappoint.  They served up some wig wearin’, stache sportin’, truth tellin’ realness.  Kim rocked “The Farrah” like only she can, not to be outdone by Reza’s gloriously quaffed upper lip.  I swear that man’s mustache is the 8th wonder of the world...

There’s something so refreshing about two guests truly unafraid to tell it like it is and it makes for great TV.  Reza musta had Santa on the brain ‘cause he couldn’t keep from dropping those Ho, Ho, Hos! And say what you will about Kim, but that lady just wants to be home with her hot hubby and you can’t hate a ho for that!  

Monday: Let’s be real for a second: I’m 23 and I’m not even gonna PRETEND to be ashamed that I used to drink up every drama filled minute of Laguna Beach and The Hills. So of course I was LIVING for Kristin Cavallari’s confession that it was a big pile of producer induced drama. Shocking? Eh, not really. Exhilarating for the teen in me? Abso-freaking-lutely. There’s no shame in my game, hunny!

Taylor Armstrong was on her absolute A-game and she totally wins for my favorite one liner of the week: “The only thing uglier than a drunk woman is a drunk woman’s 40-yr-old ass flying through the air!” And please let us not forget the arm wrestling. Oh my word, the arm wrestling.  


Tuesday: Truly, there are no words for the amazingness that was the luscious lipped Lisa Rinna and Jeff Lewis and therefore I simply gift you with this kisstacular clip:

You’re welcome. 

Wednesday: I really think that one of the things that is so unique about WWHL is our unexpected guest combos. You never know who will end up in those chairs!  So when I saw ‘Carmen Electra and Billy Ray Cyrus’ on the calendar, my achy breaky heart skipped an achy breaky beat.

When Carmen slinked into the studio I couldn’t believe how amazing she looked. Does that woman age?! She was KILLIN’ it all night long complete with sex appeal and sock bun. I admit I was bummed when Billy Ray plead the fifth on the Miley Ex-BF question. I mean really, who wasn’t hoping for a little juice on a JoBro?! But fear not! Carmen saved the day (and all the imaginary swimmers) by teaching Andy and Billy to patrol the beach, slow mo style!


Thursday: Apparently agelessness is going around because Jane Fonda looks SPECTACULAR. She and Sandra paired up for the perfect storm of hilarity and the show ended with my favorite new holiday tradition: Secret Sandra! 

And may I just add that the legendary, Oscar winning, fitness flaunting Miss Fonda went home wearing a menorah hat? So yeah, my life is complete. 


Love and Light ;)
