How's your relationship with your DVR? If it's rusty, put on some romantic music, cuddle up, get to know each other better, and get it primed and ready for two exciting things…

  • 1. Tomorrow (October 3) 1:00 MST I will be on Studio 5 doing a segment that I am REALLY excited about: it's about how to live “The VIP Lifestyle…For Less“. I give all the secrets to buying designer clothes, driving luxury cars, affording exotic travel, and justifying pampering (eyelash extensions, massages, mani/pedis, facials, and other incredible fav's)…all on an incredible dime. You are going to die.

Ready for the exciting one? Guys, the time has finally come.

  • 2. TLC has officially scheduled my episode of Extreme Cheapskates to air! FINALLY! The season will start Oct 23, 2013 (check your local listings for the exact time). The only problem is the network keeps switching around the episodes, so I don't know yet when my episode will air exactly. I might never know, unfortunately. So just keep your DVR's primed and ready, just in case I don't get an exact date to you in time! *Update: My official episode date is Nov 20*
More exciting news?
If I can nail down a date in time…I will be having a massive, free, anyone-and-everyone-invited premier  party to celebrate the episode together! Cross your fingers that I can pull it together in time.
WOO HOO! I'm excited*!
Excited might be stretching it a little. I'm actually nervous as heck. I wish I could crawl in a hole and let the episode pass by and not tell anyone in the world about it. Why? I'm not entirely sure, but mainly it's the unknown that scares me. I usually do live TV, where I have complete control over what I say, the message I want to get across, and how I want to be portrayed. This is reality TV. I hate to say it, but it is NOT real. They can literally splice my words in half and make me say things for dramatic affect. I have faith *and hope* that the production company wouldn't do that, but ultimately, it's entirely out of my control. Also, I hope I'm not building up too many grand expectations. It's only ONE episode in a whole season of episodes, it will most likely be 20 minutes or less (because of commercials), and I could very well share that 20 minutes with another shoot. It could be lame, boring, and pointless. I don't want you to walk away having your hopes and dreams of magic and dazzle being slashed and crushed. BUT…I also know that many of you are happy for me and excited, so I want to share in that together. So I'm going to put on my big girl panties, stick my chin up, and take whatever blows my way…let's just hope it's not a tornado of horror.
