I Was on TMZ Live Today!

Michelle Obama official public portrait

For those of you who are interested, I had 10 seconds of fame on TMZ Live today ... Feb. 27, 2017! They contacted me through Twitter about a week ago and asked if I would like to go on their show sometime. I said yes, but postponed them a week. Today was the day! I was on the segment where they talked about Michelle Obama taking a spin class at Soul Cycle in Washington, DC. I commented that I thought it was great she was having fun after leaving the White House and inspiring her Secret Service detail to stay in shape! From my end, it looked like I was a little blurry. I hope it was clear at their end. Guess I'll see when I watch it at my house this afternoon! FOLLOW-UP: After recording the show, TMZ sent me the following note: "Thanks again for coming on the show today! We are ALWAYS looking for new faces, so if you have any friends who would want to participate, please feel free to send them our way. Our Skype name is "tmztvshow." You can go to TMZ. com and enter your zip code to find out when today's show will air in your city. The entire episode will also be online in a few days under VIDEOS - TMZ LIVE. We'll reach out again in about a month to bring ya back on. Have a great day!" If I do it again, there are a few adjustments I would make ... wearing a brighter color and darker lipstick, and pushing my computer back a little. However, overall I was pretty happy with how it turned out.

@JudyEv - You know how they say that everyone has their "15 minutes of fame?" For me, it was more like 15 seconds. LOL

@allknowing - TMZ stands for Thirty Mile Zone, which is the 30 mile circle in Los Angeles where most of the TV and Movie studios are located. TMZ has several celebrity gossip TV shows.

@KrauseHome - TMZ is a type of gossip TV show about movie stars, TV stars and other celebrities. That day they talked about how the host of the Biggest Loser TV show had a heart attack; how Michelle Obama works out regularly at age 51; about how Mohammad Ali's son was detained at the airport, and several other types of similar topics.

Wish you could post something for the benefit of those of us who cannot see it live. Is TMZ a T.V. program?

That is very exciting. You should have contacted me about TV makeup and clothing colors. For shame! Lol! Bravo wanted to interview my daughter-in-law for the up and coming under thirty women, but being an attorney, she knew her rights and demanded a contract, so they wouldn't promote her in the future without compensation. She also does Soul Cycle in Manhattan with many actors and actresses.

@DianneN - One of my friends suggested that next time I wear a brighter shade of blue and a brighter lipstick than normal so my coloring looks warmer on TV. I think I will try that. TMZ said they may contact me in a month or two to do it again. We'll see.
