Dr. Phil Uncensored: Love Times Three Backstage
(Note: the shows producer told us that he never poses for pictures with the guests!)
There is nothing I can do to change it. No way I can go back and say it better than the way I did the first time. It is all on tape now. Even as I write this it is probably being spliced and diced and edited to fit into the time-frame of the show.
Like I would with any “interview” I want to make a good impression. I want to look good and feel confident. I try not to think about the larger national audience that will eventually be viewing this. For now just to concentrate on the 200+ people in the room with me. Maybe, most importantly, the person conducting the interview…Dr. Phil McGraw of the Dr Phil Show.
Thankfully, they had these really fabulous and talented people for hair and make-up. First, there was Allen who spent a lot of time applying my make-up, covering every blemish and defining my eyes. Next came Rhonda, a tiny petite woman who was a whiz with the curling iron.
Before going on stage the producer warned me that it might be chilly on stage and asked if I wanted a jacket. I declined since I liked the look of the blouse I had on. It may have been a mistake. I felt myself start to shiver, then had to worry that it might look like I was nervous. Okay so I was nervous but only the tiniest bit during the very first segment.
By the end of the taping I was relaxed and comfortable and felt that things went very well. Those 200+ people were cheering for us anyhow. Next comes those millions of T.V. viewers. Hopefully their reaction is just as wonderful. That happens when they air the show we taped. Please watch The Dr Phil Show on Monday Sept 26th. Let us know what you think?
I’m still just the tiniest bit nervous! Shhh, don’t tell…
