To 300 More!

WWHL's Reseach Associate Producer celebrates our 300th episode with Sonja Morgan, cake, and licking.

Happy 300th episode! As I reflect back on all the shows, the late nights, and the amazing talent that have graced our tiny studio, I can’t help but think: my job is better than your job. Okay, maybe not better than everyone else’s job, I’m no astronaut, but it is pretty amazing. Take this week as an example:

On Monday Sonja Morgan signed the wall of our cubicle. After her Clubhouse appearance, she decided to chat it up with some of the WWHL team and thought it was only appropriate to leave a note: “Sonja adds spice to #wwhl and #wwhl adds spice to Sonja." Now every time I need some inspiration, I just have to glance over my shoulder and I am filled with toaster-oven loving, headband wearing, Sonja in the City vibes.


On Tuesday we celebrated two birthdays at WWHL. We celebrate everyone’s birthdays. Always. You can try to hide it, but we will track you down and celebrate you. We will creep up on you when you least expect it, serenade you with an off-key rendition of “Happy Birthday”, present you with your favorite candle covered dessert, and leave you with the Alex McCord red flush of embarrassment. Tuesday we celebrated Tori and Christie’s birthdays! Check out the cake. It rhymed. (It’s WWHL, of course it did.)


On Wednesday’s WWHL, Tom Colicchio and our TCM finalists played The Quick Fire Lick Fire Challenge.  I am proud to say that my partner in crime, Christie, and I came up with the idea for this game. We started by thinking of all the words that rhymed with quick…brick, tick, wick, LICK!  Licking is funny!  The Quick Fire Lick Fire Challenge was born.  After coming up with the name, we knew it had to be a blindfolded food licking game. (Although I also pitched a version of the game that involved the guests racing to lick alcohol out of a kitty dish. I don’t know why that one was rejected.)

Watching the game play out in rehearsal, which at that point had been tweaked, finessed, and perfected by a team of talented WWHL producers, I couldn’t help but think, how lucky am I to get paid to come up with this stuff?!

In case you missed it, the game was amazing: it was phallic, it was juvenile, it was hysterical, it was so WWHL.

On Thursday we celebrated the big 300 with Ellen Barkin and NeNe Leakes. After the show we had champagne and ice cream cake and hung out and played games. The best part is, while this week marked a major milestone, this is pretty much what all of our weeks are like. Pretty awesome, right? So here’s to 300 more!

Wish Upon a Giggy

WWHL's Associate Producer reveals her ultimate wish while recapping the wild week that was.

Catfights, Ron Ron Juice, and Lea Black - oh what a week it’s been. 

Tuesday night was filled with the gloriousness of one Ms. Joan Collins. She is classy and spicy and came to our studio clad in a white, sequined blazer. How can you beat that? Answer: you can’t.

Now, the 'Real Housewives' franchise has given us wig pulls, table flips, and year after year of Posche Fashion Show meltdowns. However, I must say, I’ve never seen anything quite as impressive as the Alexis and Krystle fights on 'Dynasty.' The WWHL staff knew that this level of lady-on-lady fighting was screaming for a remix. So, that’s exactly what we did. Check it out…



If I can only be granted one wish from my Giggy in a Bottle, may it be that I am lucky enough to engage in a fight that results in being pushed into a lily pond. *Fingers Crossed*


(P.S. I don’t actually have Giggy in a bottle. Lisa Vanderpump, please don’t have me arrested.)

Wednesday night, we were joined by the ladies of 'Jersey Shore.' I must say, every single member of the 'Jersey Shore' brood is so darn nice. They’re like a modern-day version of 'Full House.'  Think about it, Pauly D is the perfect uncle. He has the same fervor for hair products as Uncle Jesse and the loveable laid back nature of Uncle Joey. Snooki’s baby, Lorenzo, is so lucky!

Speaking of fervor, I cannot stress how much our staff loves Ron Ron Juice. No, it’s not that we actively seek it out. However, when our 'Jersey Shore' friends stop by, our awesome Production Assistant, Tori, whips up a few pitchers. After the show is over, the WWHL staff scrambles to get a glass of the slushy beverage. It’s ice-y, it’s watermelon-y and it’s full of booze. A perfect post-show cocktail!

Finally, we ended our week with the fabulous “Mayor of Miami,” Lea Black. I love Lea Black. I love her jewelry, her chuckle, her family and her Galas. Thanks to Amy Phillips and her spot-on impersonation, we had not one, but TWO Lea Blacks for the night!



After the show, Amy and Lea stuck around for a few moments and chatted by my desk.  I can only hope that the two of them will have a Kiki in Miami, and that Elaine Lancaster will be there, and maybe a fight will break out, and maybe someone will get pushed into a lily pond, aaand maybe that person will be me! Dream accomplished! However, I promise we will not splash water on Lisa Hochstein’s speakers and ruin her party.

Check out Lea Black and Amy Phillips playing the role of Lea Black here…
