What happened to Dallas?

Well I’ll tell ya, nothing! I will preface this with an apology to all of those readers who live in the southern regions of the states: It does occasionally snow and life goes on, does an inch really warrant four hours of live coverage!?!? No, but my hit in Dallas was canceled for this exact reason. It is like they have never gotten below 50 degrees, never mind seen an inch of snow and a few spots of ice.

I was about to board the plane from Atlanta to Dallas today when I got a frantic call from my booker telling me not to get on. Apparently a winter storm had hit (um, OK) and they couldn’t find the time to talk about last minute gifts with the overwhelming amount of snow (one inch) and ice. Thank god for my very individual beautiful white suitcase with gold crowns because otherwise they never would have found it and gotten it off the plane at the last second!

So here I am in St. Louis one day early and looking for ways to entertain myself on my surprise day off. It is not that hard for me as long as there is a spa and bar within a short distance. Therefore my tomorrow includes working out, checking out local boutiques, going to the movies (this is the only time I do it by myself so I feel like a trooper) and getting a facial and manicure. Tough life, but someones got to do it.

Columbus, OH Done, Milwaukee Up Next!

Thank God for a change of scenery. After Albany almost killed me, Columbus basically rocked. Going on-air usually only lasts about three to five minutes, so a hit is really based on how awful the travel is and how awesome the people are that you meet. I will talk to anyone and anything so sitting at bars by myself is actually quite entertaining. This is not my personality in NYC, because well, I live there. When you are traveling, what do you have to lose? I managed to become friendly with the bar tender David at my hotel. The fact that he was cute certainly did not hurt. I was not interested in drinking anymore because I do try to be professional, but human contact is of vital importance to me and if it is with a cute guy all the better. We were then joined by several other gentleman who allowed me to be my ridiculous self and do a bit of ball busting. What is life without ball busting anyway?

Catch my Milwaukee appearance tomorrow on NBC between 9 and 10….

Me in Albany. Columbus up Next!


Now, Albany may be a lovely little city, but this trip turned out to be a very large pain in my tushy. Quick re-cap just to make sure you can all share in my pain…..

I go through rush hour traffic just to get to the airport late and find out that my flight has been canceled. There is an ice storm in Albany, oohh, fun. I then get back in a cab, through more rush hour traffic, to Penn Station. I down a beer, because after 2.5 hours of travel and still being in Manhattan, I deserve it. An hour later I get on a train. Yea, a 3 hour train ride to icy Albany. We sit on the track for an hour somewhere around the 2 hours mark. Good times. I finally get there an hour later than expected. Final time, 7 hours from door to door for a trip that should take under three hours. Seriously?

Now, don’t think that is the end. I know you didn’t. I have a delivery (wine) coming to the hotel because I am talking about it on-air. Does it show up? You can guess… no. Next up, a cabbie pulls up two minutes before I am suppose to be at the station puffin on a cigarette with windows closed. Hi, can I be late and get cancer? Thanks sir.

And the grand finale! The news anchor, Betina in the photo, informs me that the trains are not running. Super. I end up at the airport after another cab ride filled with detours because Albany looks like the set of a movie. Trees are down everywhere and it is covered in an ice blanket. I get to the airport and low and behold, I have been picked to get a full search. I am talking crotch grabs here.

The only saving grace was that the flight was on-time and I met a lovely gentleman who I believe I entertained for the very short flight. I am home for a night and then off to Columbus tomorrow. Let’s hope that it only gets better from here………………..8AM Sunday, CBS, be there or be square. Yea, I said it.

I am coming to a city near you!
