Let’s face it. I lead a very glamorous life. Everyday, I roll out of my bed, brush my teeth, go downstairs, make my coffee and feed my kids breakfast. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, I put on my makeup and put in my contacts, on Tuesday and Thursday. I don’t. I typically slide on my best good pair of yoga pants but sometimes I shake things up by putting on my sweatpants that I bought on clearance at Target for $6.
I’m always, always topped off by my finest luxury graphic tee. And my hairstylist daily puts in a ponytail using only the finest of ponytail holders.
And my cuisine? Consists of a Nutrigrain Bar for breakfast or on my most leisurely of days, a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios. For lunch? Peanut butter and jelly.
So, a few weeks ago, when I was invited to attend a luncheon in downtown Chicago with the actress, Monica Potter from the new series called Trust Me on TNT, I was all like “and give up this luxury for half of a day?”
But, for the sake GETTING OUT OF MY HOUSE AND CHANGING OUT OF MY PAJAMAS, I accepted the invitation. (this is unlike the call with Patrick Dempsey, where I sat on my bed in my super hot yoga pants.)
This was this past Friday. Prior to Friday, I was also sent two episodes of the new series to view at home, just to see what I think.
I’m not going to lie to you. I really liked it. It’s different. It’s not the same ol’ CSI, it’s not a medical show, it’s not reality, it’s a good show with great actors. I’m a huge fan of Eric McCormack and love that he’s in another show. I was interested in how believable he would be as a non-gay actor. At first it was difficult for me, but after awhile, not so much. He’s such a good actor. (and I’m pretty sure he wants to be my boyfriend, but that’s between you and me.)
I don’t watch much TV, I typically start to watch something and then I get distracted and turn it off. But this show held my attention. The series premiere is on tonight on TNT, CHECK IT OUT. And check out how cute Monica Potter is, she’s totally cute in person and she’s also a real Mom to three children.
I was able to sit right next to her while eating lunch, which was nice because we talked about things and it was like she wasn’t a celebrity. I tried talking her into getting an iPhone. (You’re welcome, Apple.)
And did I mention I was hired to photograph the event? It’s true. I was.
In case you’re having trouble figuring it out, that’s me on the right and Monica on the left. I know, the resemblance is uncanny.
We were able to sit and ask her questions during lunch. She’s answered them wonderfully.
It was fun. Very fun.
Do me a favor, check out Trust Me tonight and let me know what you think. m’kay?
