Shot A Segment On Better TV For The Rachael Ray Magazine And Starkist Tuna

This morning, I headed into the city for an early morning shoot with Better TV. The Rachael Ray Magazine teamed up with Starkist Tuna and asked if I would help spread the word about their new Tuna Creations Pouches. I was SO NERVOUS. You know me – I’m a digital girl living in a digital world. Lights, Camera, Action? Not really something I hear on a regular basis. Sure, I do video like it’s nobody’s business… but STILL. It’s different when it’s LIIIIIIVVVVVVEEEEEE.

Everyone was SOOOOOO NICE – so it actually all worked out. I had a great time and being on set was an absolute pleasure. I got to go shopping for a new shirt and had my hair and makeup done TO BOOT. Nice way to start off my week, right? LOL!


I’ll post the segment after it airs next week. It tapes like it’s live. So, it’s not actually live… it just feels that way.

Cherry on top? I met Mr. Danny Gokey from American Idol and even heard him SING. A little green room performance before my segment. Ah-mazing!! You know I’m a blogger so I whipped my phone out as soon as he started belting out a tune. So cool!
