Going to the fashion episode of The Tyra Show, meeting Mr. Jay, Whitney, Saleisha, and Jaslene, and being picked to sit on the stage during the fashion show - Priceless

As mildly skeptical as I was to go to The Tya Show this past Tuesday, it ended being 1000 x's better, than I thought it was going to be.

Over Spring Break, a group of friends and I went to Tila Tequila's MTV Spring Break show in Miami. It was super fake. So fake that we got sick of it, left early, but when we watched it, we saw ourselves in the audience during segments that we weren't even there for! Before the show started even taping, we had to do a fake applause, act as if someone said a "funny joke," act as if someone said a "bad joke," put #2 in the sky, boo, and a whole bunch of other bullshit that they caught on film. It was exhausting and questionable, and the abrupt ending was a reaffirmation of how bad it was.

That was my first experience as an audience member of a taped show before - resulting in my weary attitude before The Tyra Show.

Buuuuut, lo and behold, it was AWESOME!

After chillin in the waiting room, signing release forms and anticipating Tyra's arrival, we finally headed up to the actual studio. Upon seeing that all the front row seats were taken, Jaz and I got a little disappointed, but we were seated in the front row of the second section. Yay. They played really good music while we were waiting and the Production Assistant/Master of Ceremonies was this spicy, flamboyant, hispanic man who kept us laughing and entertained until Tyra came on.

Then she finally appeared. In a skimpy Dorothy outfit and it all unfolded from there.

All in all, the entire audience got a ton of free stuff (the Calvin Klein dress fits perfectly), I won the purple T-shirt, me and Jaz got to sit with the on stage audience during the mini fashion show, and it was great.

My bloodsugar got really low towards the end, while we were sitting on stage, so I didn't enjoy it that much towards the end.

Note to self: Eat sugar before going to a hectic taping of a talk show.

In other news
- I died my hair red. Like super red. Really fucking red. Hopefully the dye will dull out...hopefully. It's growing on me, but it's red.

I went on a job interview yesterday. It went well but I was late :( In my defense, I was on time, I was just at the old location. The address on their website isn't their actual location so after some frantic phone calls and subway rides, I finally got there. Pray that it all works out ...

Stay tuned

PS - When I searched YouTube for a video clip of the Tyra episode , I found this picture and I thought it was too fierce!
