Temptation x 2...

Game Show Audition - TEMPTATION - 7/26/07

Okay. Yes, I did it. I auditioned for a game show. I get e-mails about them all the time, so I finally figured "Hey, why not?!? I could really use a grand prize, or even a nice parting gift right about now." It was actually a lot of fun. I stayed around for the long haul, and even won the mock competition I was a part of. As I was leaving, one of the producers told me "It’s very likely that you’ll be chosen to be on the show." Cool! I'll keep you posted!...:)...

The most excitement of the evening actually came on the drive TO the "audition." These two "Hollywood Type" girls (who I could hear coming way up the road, honking at random drivers) decided they wanted to throw a few derogatory words at your girl. And, you know I wasn’t having that. Let's just say, after a brief verbal exchange of words we almost made a pit stop on a 101 frontage road, and some very expensive brunette and blonde hair extensions were about to be all over the highway. That is, UNTIL I remembered where I was going. I figured it probably wouldn’t be a good idea to walk up in the audition (even if it was for a game show) all sweaty and disheveled and what not.

You know, I find road rage to be a very funny thing, people who wouldn’t even look in your direction if you were standing right next to them, feel as though just because they’re behind the wheel of a car, they’re invincible. I feel sorry for those two girls if they do that all the time though, because one day someone might not be on their way to an audition. Another thing I found amusing is, why is it, when it comes to me and these public showdowns, are there always 2 girls?!?

Feeling Hot, Hot, Hot!

Print Audition - DISNEY - 7/24/07 (Kenyah)
VO Audition - CHEVY - 7/25/07

We ended up having to wait 2.5 hours for Kenyah to be seen yesterday. "Wow," is all I will say. There were some pretty "HOT" people there, in every sense of the word. Folks were complaining left and right. Once we got in the room, it was a quick in and out. I think she did well. We'll see what happens.

My audition this morning was pretty quick, it was a partner read. The agent said we nailed it on the first take, which is cool. It'd be very nice to book it!...:)...

On Monday I sent the Lowy/Brace office an Edible Arrangement to congratulate them on their Emmy Nomination. One of the girls in the office called me personally to thank me, telling me how much they loved it, and how great of an idea it was. I thought that was pretty cool. I sure hope they win an Emmy!

Grey's Anatomy Re-Air

Catch my most recent GREY’S ANATOMY appearance on ABC tonight!

And, in case you're just waking up, let me be the first to share the great news: GREY’S ANATOMY scored 10 Emmy Nominations this morning! Cool!...

In other news, I decided yesterday that it was time to do some shake ups in New Mexico. I switched agents, so hopefully you'll hear news of me taping auditions and/or jet setting out there more often.

New Mexico is doing big things these days, and I want to be a part of it!...

I am so proud to have such beautiful, talented children. I'm not sure what I did to deserve it, but I'm extremely happy about it!...

Told you I loved this blog!...:)...


An update, while I have a moment...

Wow, it's been a crazy busy summer! Between planning birthday parties, having both kids at home with me, and entertaining out of town guests, my plate has been really, really full.

Where do I begin? Okay, I guess I'll try to start where I left off:
  • Way back in early June when I went to the "invited open call" for INDUSTRY THE SERIES. Let me just say, it was a mad house! I'm not sure what the people running the whole thing were thinking, but needless to say, I was NOT the only one who got up out of there after waiting around for a couple of hours. Saw my friend Tyreese there.
  • I was disappointed to hear recently from SAG, that I have no financial claim against BEST WEEK EVER for using my scene a few months ago. It's all good though, I just discovered that I'll be getting some GREY'S ANATOMY DVD residual checks soon. Funny thing is, one of them is for the episode I'd been cut out of. I'm going to have to get the DVD to see if I'm in the deleted scenes or something. That'd be really sweet if I am. Just in time to be included on a new reel!
  • It's unfortunate, but I'm having a minor struggle with my new agency. I'm just not feeling the stuff they've been sending me out for. They are either non-union projects, or I feel like the character I'm reading for is too old. I had to turn down an audition this morning. The character was the mother of a college student. Granted, I finally agreed with them that I can play into my late 30's, but I'm having a hard time visualizing myself as a mother in her early 40's with a college student! I guess I've just been so used to playing my age and, at the most 5 years in either direction, that it's tripping me out that they're sending me in on stuff that's for early 40's. I feel like I'm skipping a whole age bracket! At any rate, I've been e-mailing them back and forth all weekend. I might need to go in for a meeting, so we can get this worked out before the Fall Season begins. I really like the agent I'm working with over there, so hopefully things will start picking up soon!
  • I signed with a VO Manager last week. I'm really excited about this collaboration. She has a lot of great ideas!
  • Hair today. Gone tomorrow. The weave is gone!...:)...Wearing it in cornrows at the moment.
  • Almost ready to take my new guide to the publisher. Hope to have those mailed out by the end of the month.

So, I'm done for now. I hope that everyone is having a great summer!
