Morning show host at C-96.7 KCIL in Houma, La. I've been an actor, radio guy, comedian, TV host, and a playwright, studied opera and love the theatre. My favorite quote in my book, "The only luxury I've never been afforded was the luxury of having luxury."
How to Reach for the American Dream...(and not get it.)
It’s Sunday, 11:30 a.m. and I’m compelled to make a confession. I never watch Reality TV so if you tell anyone- I kill you. I will go to your house and beat you senseless, cut off your head then kill you. I’m going to be bold, like wearing white after Labor Day or wearing socks with sandals, declaring only to Koobug, because I think you know the true me.
I watch “Say Yes to the Dress.”
It hooked me from the first credits. The beauty of that special day along with romance and fashion, reeking of family conflict, shaken not stirred, friends, in-laws, loved and hated, combined with a huge monetary component, often someone else’s money, and something some of the brides have yearned years, even decades to have, brides that are spiteful, and some willing to sell out a friend in a heartbeat in the name of love, makes me want to grab a beer and kick back in my Lazy-Boy. Throw in the editing and a production staff that are willing to manipulate people’s emotions for their own gain and it is reality television at its best.
I await, ready to answer out loud for the bride when they’re asked the big question, as if they're being asked to marry all over again.
“So, tell me, what will it be? Are you saying yes to the dress?”
“Yes! Yes! Yes!”
OMG, I got to go. It’s coming on again. It’s an episode with a drag queen bridesmaid.
The game starts at noon. I may never watch the NFL pre-game again.
