So I finally watched the show “What Not To Wear” with my sister as the special guest. Liz, caught off guard as they always are, managed to show her humor and assertiveness quickly. On the TLC website they say Liz “is one strong headed young woman.” She was telling the hosts what to do, and apparently along the way made some fans as well. So, this will be the start of the official Liz Kressel fan club. Send your $20 by paypal. (Just kidding. Though I could use the $20. 🙂 )
Someone asked if she was single. I don’t think she’d be happy about me blabbing about her personal life on my blog, so…no comment.
Anyway, yours truly was on the show too, but only as a simpering figure in the background who had little on camera time. They did interview me, but I suppose because I didn’t exclaim ebulliently how good she looked after the makeover, they decided to cut it. After all, it is “reality” TV.
