Got a secret...
got to keep it!
That's right folks, I've been keeping a secret from y'all for quite some time now.
Eh, I probably shouldn't be mentioning it on my blog, but most people that read this actually don't know me and I'm pretty sure they won't be hitting the press running with this one.
I just can't help myself.
My life is about to take a turn for the....
well who knows.
You know, when filming a reality show, you don't really know what to expect. That's right, you heard me....a reality show! WTH, right?
Well, at first, I was very skeptical to doing this. My boyfriend looked at me and pretty much said "hell no" to the whole idea & I couldn't have agreed more. I hate having my photo taken, why would I want video cameras following me around.
The whole thing started out as Yemassee, the little sleepy southern town that Justin serves as fire chief, was chosen to be one of the three towns in the US to be checked out to see if it was a star in the making. The producers of the show came to town and did some interviews and whenever we came home from ATL back in May, I was asked to do an interview by Justin's aunt. Totally felt the pressure. So I did it. She and another lady were telling me all of these great lines to say and what they thought would hook the producers.
Well if it didn't work, I don't know what would have.
YEMASSEE GOT THE SHOW.
And starting in November, expect to see this face on
oh Lord, yes...
The Lifetime Network
The show is based on the town and all of the wonderful women in it!
Which could only mean one thing....
Make the men deal with not having the women for a whole week while they send us off on a well deserved vacation.
You see, I couldn't keep this a secret anymore because I leave for vacation on SUNDAY! with 150+ other women from Yemassee to an undisclosed location.
We don't know where we're going and they're taking away all communication while we're there!
They've been filming us for the past week or so and they're coming with us on vacation.
I'm not going to give all of the juicy details, but I will tell you this.
The big guy in the sky has definitely smiled on me with this because I'm being given the chance of a lifetime and I'm allowed to showcase my photography work on this show as well.
Now I know, who would want to hire a reality tv star? Oh this is only for the 15 minutes of fame... blah blah blah. It could kill a person and their business blah blah blah...I've heard it all. But I don't think people will realize that the only reason why I started this show is because of the pressure from Justin's family and the rest of the town and I also think it will be good for other people that have the same lifestyle and story I do.
You know, "the 20 year old that's too old for her own good and is madly in love" kind of story? I just think there are girls out there that are in my same shoes and I want them to know that its all okay and that it will all work out. It just takes time and patience.
I don't want to be shown as a dumb hillbilly...that's for sure. I'm definitely nervous about that aspect of the show, but I don't think that's the direction they're going with me and Justin.
So, yeah... I can't keep this secret anymore because in less than 2 days, I leave for my big vacation!
15 minutes of fame.
