My TV Debut

A few weeks ago, I was having a quiet night at home when I got an email from the StitchFix PR rep. CBS New York was doing a segment on them, and they wanted a local customer. Did I want to be on TV?

Um, YES! I did a quick pre-interview with the CBS producer on my way to Lacey’s rehearsal dinner. She asked why I did StitchFix, and I said something along the lines of “to branch out from my usual Lilly Pulitzer and J. Crew.”

I guess I passed the pre-interview, because the producer asked when she could come over to my apartment with her camera person.

And then they walked in and saw I even have a Lilly painting on my wall, because, yes, I am that girl.

Well, the segment aired last night!

I was taking a bath when Lacey called “do you want to come over and watch yourself on TV??” (I canceled my cable years ago because I was completely throwing money away because I watch so little TV.) I had been about to go to sleep, thinking I’d just catch the video clip online…but Bailey and I walked over, because I thought it’d be fun to be around friends to watch.

Watching yourself on TV is WEIRD, y’all. I watched through my hand like I was watching a horror movie. WHAT DID I SAY? WHAT WAS ABOUT TO COME OUT OF MY MOUTH? I can be entirely too self-critical, but I am happy with how the segment came out! I have graduated from drinking cocktails on air. You can trust me to talk, people.

    How cool that they picked you! I’m sure you did great.

    We have to do a lot of video work, and I’ve done tons of mock television segments in our in-office TV studio, which, yes, are weird to watch. Still not as bad as reading a court-reporter transcript of yourself talking. Always makes me want to crawl under a table.

    You did great! And I love the dress you’re wearing in the piece — is that from StitchFix?

    Two things that made me LOL — one, CBS comparing these to fruit of the month club subscriptions (um, not really) and two, calling the segment “What’s in the box?” (Am I the only one who thinks of Brad Pitt screaming that over and over when presented with GP’s head at the end of Seven?)

    Congrats! I was on the news for a segment on wine a few years ago, and I still cringe whenever I see that someone has clicked it on my blog. I got my hair colored right before (HUGE mistake!) and it was so dark it didn’t even look like me.
