Hello my friends, I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing and wonderful Saturday. I am. It’s beautiful in LA today and we are about to head off to our niece Jheni’s little boys Birthday Party! He is turning 2 today. Happy Birthday Jack! I am looking forward to the cake. I have had a pretty busy week. Been doing a lot of press for The Singing Bee and even a photo shoot. There is a brand new episode on tonight. So please check it out and spread the word. It’s on CMT tonight 9pm eastern/8pm central right after Can You Duet! I love hosting the show and am so glad the response has been positive. And the other big news is I did Are You Smarter Than A 5th grader yesterday!!!!! AHHHHHHH. I think I would rather have another C-section again than face those 5th graders. I was a nervous wreck. I studied like crazy and thanks to all my twitter Tweethearts for all their help in preparing. I played for 2 different charities. One was Challenge Air For Kids And Friends in honor of Ryan Mouritsen. Ryan was a wonderful part of our Reba show family and recently passed away and this was a charity that was close to his heart. Ryan was one of those really special people that always had a smile on his face and he was always ready to help and good for a laugh. You are missed my friend. I also played for the Unusual Suspects Theater Company. It is an organization that uses theater and performance as a way to reach out to kids at risk. My friend Melissa Denton works with them and I know what amazing work they do. I can’t tell anybody what happened until the show airs but it was so much fun and those kids are amazing!!!! I am pretty sure they were just tiny professors because they were so smart!!! I might hire them to do my taxes. And I was already a fan of Jeff Foxworthy but am now even a bigger one. He is the nicest man. So funny and a real pro. Thank you Jeff for having me on the show. Now we just got to get Reba to do it!!! What else? Not too much to tell you, just enjoying the summer days with Riley and John. Have a wonderful day.
Ps Going to dinner with Reba tonight! Been missing her and can’t wait to catch up! It will be a great day. Birthday cake and laughing with my buddy.
Pps Watch the Singing Bee tonight!! Call your friends and play along. It’s always more fun with friends! Heck eat some birthday cake while you watch! Why not!!!!
