Sizzle It. Just a Little Bit.

My Nashville weekend was filled with lights, cameras and all kinds of action.

Recently, I was approached by a producer who stumbled upon my blog and thought my life (and Teddy’s too) might make for interesting reality TV. So we explored that idea further this weekend by filming footage for a sizzle reel (could it be called anything more appropriate for me?).

Sizzle it. Just a little bit.

Sparkling for the sizzle.

Although I had the time of my life, I’m still in the depths of recuperation from…

The copious amounts of cocktails (in every scene),

One lush of a cat.

My incessant talking (pretty sure I made the camera dude’s ears bleed),

No. I c

My voice will be haunting his nightmares.

Trying to keep the lipstick off my teeth (damn Dracula chompers),

Four hours of continuous zip lining (I need a new crotch),

So black isn’t always flattering…

Mascot manhandling (yep, you read that right),

If this isn’t TV gold, I don’t know what is.

Shopping in six inch stilettos for hours (anyone wanna rub my feet?),

Seriously. Help.

And filming back-to-back 12 hour days, which caused us to take not-so-flattering selfies when it was a wrap.

Bleary eyed and bushy tailed.

Bleary eyed and bushy tailed.

As you can tell by the look in Ted’s eyes, he’s wondering why can’t all weekends be just like this one…

    Remember us little people as you climb the ladder to reality TV stardom, CBXG! I may be available to be flown down for a Sharpie scene and my clever wit. Ha. By the way, perhaps it is a sizzle reel, going back to the days of film? Dunno. Just wondering. In any case, you OWN the sizzle part!) I so would watch you and Ted on the flatscreen. Congratulations on the big opportunity, my friend.

    • Thanks Mark! Maybe this would help our Sharpie idea along…! And of course you’ll have to make a guest appearance!
      There’s probably not too much of a ladder for me to climb, as the possibilities of this going further are slim to none BUT Ted and I got our ‘moment’ and will have this reel to watch on repeat forever.

  9. Congrats!!!! I hope it works out for you. Now I will definitely see TB on Times Square.

  10. This is PERFECT for you!!! Best of luck.

  11. what……what……that cat eats green peas for gods sake…and hes going to be on the t&v…i cant stand it…green pea eating pampered iowa football watching cocktail slurping spoiled costume wearing over indulged sizzle butt house cat..holy crap..wheres the tylenol.

  12. Wow, could they find anyone more perfect for this! It was only a matter of time before they discovered Ted….I meant to say you, oops, sorry. Let me know when you debut! We’ll help get your ratings up. Seriously, congratulations. The fam and I did a commercial once years ago for a karate studio. As you can see I didn’t get my big break, but you and Ted will be TV magic. Does this show have a name yet?

  35. You’re so awesome!!! Congrats…I bet Nina would watch your show, and I would tag along…:)

    • Thanks Oliver! It’s been such a fun experience this far. I love that you would ‘tag along’ with Nina to watch. You could tune in just for Ted, you know. He’s going to be all of the testosterone in the show, of course. Keeping it all kinds of manly.
