Hey friends ...
THANKS so much for your well-wishes
with my Oprah network audition
It went well.
No call back yet ... but I'll keep you posted.
So anyway, there I was, 5:30 am standing in a very looooooong line
on a sidewalk on a beautiful hill in Laguna Niguel
to get a wristband with a # so I would get an audition.
My daughter Brooke was with me and we were chatting when all of a sudden I thought I heard someone say "Denalee".
What?!?!! In a line of a couple of thousand people in a place I've never been?!
I turned and immediately recognized my friend, Loa, way back from
Donny & Marie Show days!
Holy SCHMOLY! That was 30 years ago!!!
Loa is the all-time-best make-up artist.
And she's my friend.
So the hours in the sun waiting for our turns ended up being very sweet time remembering some of the crazies we worked for, catching up on husbands, children & grandchildren, and laughing a lot. Before we even got our auditions the day was a success!
The combination of Loa, Brooke and Loa's husband David ... well, I couldn't have asked for a better morning!
