WWHL's Research Associate Producer talks supermodel friends, guest pet visits, and hitting the jackpot.

on Oct 5, 2012

After the show Carole Radziwill and her friend, Karen Duffy (you remember her, super hot model/actress from the 90’s, Almay spokesmodel and Revlon’s Charlie perfume girl!), were heading out with Michelle for a nightcap. On the elevator ride down, the ladies talked about dating, mutual friends, and what men were their current types. A writer, a model, and an actress all dishing on guys and living the oh so glamorous life. This, I thought, is one of those crazy Sex and the City New York moments that don’t usually exist in the day-to-day hustle and bustle of real NYC life. As I walked out behind them, Karen Duffy turned around to me and said, “Have a good night, I love your makeup by the way! It looks great!” The Almay-“tarantula eye”-mascara-lady (remember that commercial?) thought my makeup looked great?! SCORE!

Tuesday we were greeted with an adorable surprise; Donnie Wahlberg brought his sweet dog Lumpy with him to the show.

Since I research guests, I had read about Lumpy and was delighted to meet him in person. Plus, Jenny McCarthy graced us with her up-for-anything presence. I couldn’t wait to show some of the goofy Jenny promotional pics we had found months earlier in Heather Dubrow’s research, and learn a little about what “Heather Paige Kent” was like pre-Housewives. Finally! Another one of my burning Housewife questions would be answered.  After the show the staff had a few drinks (Fresquila for me!), and we played  a little dress up with the wigs that were used for the next night’s Ethan Hawke/Liam Neeson “Clubhouse Playhouse.” How did I look with the Caroline redheaded bob? Let’s just say I’m not posting pics of that for a reason.  We also tried out a new game that our genius Game Producer, Paul, is working on. Things always get heated after the show when we play Paul’s games. My team won (I think)!
