It’s been a while since I blogged. Sorry about that. Well, I have a ton of good news to share. First of all, I am thrilled to announce that I am going to be the new host of the show The Biggest Loser on NBC. I absolutely love watching that show, so I am really excited to be a part of it now. The message of the show and the way that it helps so many people, both the contestants and the audience really inspire me. It’s going to be a pretty hectic schedule for me this spring! I will be shooting a complicated, deep story at Days in the next couple months as well as shooting the next season of The Biggest loser. This is such an incredible opportunity for me, and I can’t wait to tell you more about it as I go through this experience.
Secondly, Ben is great. It’s his second birthday on Sunday and I am planning a small party with our family. My father-in-law is baking his birthday cake again… chocolate! Always a crowd pleaser. Anyway, Ben still comes to work with me occasionally. He sits in the make-up room and colors or visits with people while I get my hair and make-up done. Everyone loves having him hang out. He gives out high-fives all morning, and it didn’t take Bryan too long to teach him to say “Bry-Bry”. So now everyone else is jealous because he says Bry-Bry and Margie (my hair-dressers name). Ben’s face cracks me up when he sees James, too. I need a picture of James and Ben standing side by side. He stares up at him, so fascinated by how tall James is.
Ben is talking all the time now. He has a ton of words in his vocabulary, and picking up new ones every day. He said “bless you” when I sneezed today. So I guess now comes the part where Dave and I are going to have to start brushing up on our spelling skills. Haven’t you ever heard parents of young kids spelling their way through a conversation. It’s hilarious, and when you’re out-of-practice, it’s kind of hard to keep up. Lol.
And last of all, DAYS!! It’s so crazy right now, isn’t it??!!! I love watching the other stories right now and there are a lot of cliff-hangers and awesome twists in the storylines that are going to surprise you. I love the stuff I’m shooting right now.
And, I owe a lot of ‘thank you’s. James and I received some fabulous Valentine’s day gifts from the EJami fans. Thank you for the adorable stuffed tiger for Ben, it’s from an animal rights charity, and Ben hasn’t let go of it since. And thank you for the delicious truffle-Hershey’s Kisses. The crew and production offices loved the snacks – and many out of fair-play, felt it was only right to take an EJami Kiss as well as the Lumi Kisses. They were both displayed in places of honor so that everyone could enjoy them. Thank you Lumi fans for the cool Lumi personalized containers for the kisses – I will continue to keep them filled as a little treat for everyone, too!
