I hinted a few weeks ago about my celebrity encounter and here at last are the details:
Last month I responded to a Wendy Williams' tweet about getting a Kim Kardashian makeover. About and hour later I was contacted to come by the studio for a casting call. While I wasn't chosen, they told me I'd probably be suited for something else later. Well fast forward a couple weeks, and I was called up for a mom's segment. My wonderful sister-in-law watched Nia for me while I headed out to Family Dollar to film the segment (unglamorous store, I know, but hey, it sounded like a unique opportunity!).
The segment, which aired Mother's Day, was Wendy pretending to be an employee of Family Dollar for the day. While several moms were chosen to go only a few were filmed - I wasn't one of them.
Here's a pic of us moms with Wendy (some of the ladies were super pushy to get close to Wendy, and I obviously didn't really care as you can only see my head!):
We were given a Family Dollar gift card and told we could go back to the show for the airing of segment (the Mother's Day episode). At the time I didn't think I could go but again, my sister-in-law was able to watch Nia so I made it!
It was a really fun show! I met up with a few of the other moms from the Family Dollar segment and we all set together (we were VIPs!).
