Some Good news! I am doing a reoccurring guest spot on the new CW show Surviving Suburbia starring Bob Saget.  Which is great in itself, but the best part is it is produced by all of the Reba Show producers.  And the crew is most of the crew from Reba!! I get to hang with my family again.!!! I was reminded how much I miss them and how lucky I was to have been surrounded by such great people for all those years.  I think so many people have this impression that everyone in LA is shallow, spoiled brats and yes there are some of those…believe me I end up behind them in line at Starbucks all the time…”Is this Frappachino sugar free? I SAID sugar free and this tastes like real sugar or at least what I remember real sugar tasted like, I haven’t had real sugar since I was 3!”  AHHHHHHHHHHH I just want to scream, “ Just drink it!!! You can work it off by thinking about yourself real hard!”…..Ok Where was I?  Yes, most of the people that I have met through working in show business have been normal, kind and extremely generous people and I have been lucky enough to get to work with them.  The bad news about getting this job is I am going to miss one tour date with Reebs and KC…it’s the October 16th show. I am so bummed. There will only be 2 Musketeers that night!  But I will be joining the tour the next night in Pittsburg on the 17th so I am only missing one night.  It’s such a great show and I am really excited to get back on the road. I am leaving tomorrow for another weekend with my Reebs and Kelly and I am so excited.  This is such a great show and we had a fantastic opening weekend in Canada. I want to say thanks to all of those Canadians who came to the show because you were so enthusiastic and fun.  I loved Winnepeg and Saskatoon and Edmonton was beautiful and I am telling you the people were so nice to all of us.  I am hoping that Boise, Salt Lake City and Reno will be just as awesome!  I will be blogging from the road and talking to fans so stay tuned!

Well, I am back in LA and I already miss all of our family in MN, but it’s great to be in our house and see Janet our dog. She really missed us, well not me really but John. Janet gave up on me when I betrayed her and had a baby and she stopped being the baby. But I gave her a little boy who drops a ton of food on the floor so it’s a fair trade. 

I am very busy getting ready for the Reba/Kelly tour and I am hosting the Sound Of Music Sing-a-Long at the Hollywood Bowl on September 19th . This is my fourth time at the bowl and it is so much fun. It’s 18,000 people watching the best movie ever and singing along plus they dress up in costumes bring some wine and are ready to have fun. It’s the perfect mix of families, friends and drag queens. I love it! So if you’re in or around LA I highly recommend getting tickets. I will also be performing at the Les Girls Caberet show on Oct. 6th at the Avalon in Hollywood; it’s a great event that raises money for The National Breast Cancer Coalition. This will be my third time and it always makes me nervous because they get such amazing talent to perform and I get a little intimidated but it is always fun and a great cause. What else, I am currently addicted to the TLC show “Rock The Reception”. This is the greatest show ever!!!! It’s a show where a real bride and groom want to surprise everyone at their wedding with a really fun and different first dance. They get choreographers to come and teach them and sometimes their bridesmaid or groomsmen a professional routine. They have like 3 days and it’s awesome. Instead of doing a traditional slow dance they break out in “Super Freak” or “U Can’t Touch That” and they blow everyone away.. I LOVE IT. I even cried at a few of the episodes because the couple was so fun and it was a wedding and I cry at every wedding even on TV. You cannot watch this show and not smile so if you’re having a bad day, tune in. Well gotta run, love hearing from you so write in with your thoughts, comments, questions or even recipes…..I love recipes….I never use them….but I love them.

Have a great day!

I am going to need more leggings. We have one week left in MN and then it’s back to LA to get ready for the Two Worlds Two Voices Tour with Kelly Clarkson and Reba. The three Musketeers are gonna ride again!!! I am so excited to join them again. If their coming to your city you have to get tickets, it’s such a great show and the two of them are amazing together and I am not just saying that because their my BF’s….you can check out Kelly or Reba’s websites for locations and ticket info. It’s gonna be a party! But a party you need to get tickets for so get on it. I love doing it because I get chance to meet and talk to the fans and I love that! And now that I have a website I will be documenting my life on the road for you all. And hey this isn’t a one-way street people. I want to hear from you guys too. If you have ideas for my act. Let me know I will totally steal them! If you have questions for me. I will totally answer them…if you have more ways for me to wear legging…I want to know!! Gotta go, I am taking Riley to the Mall Of America…Yahoo!!! You can ride a roller-coaster and buy more leggings all at the same place.

Starting my diet, after I eat this left-over pizza.
