Sheri Salata, isn't she the best? She's the calm-under-pressure, executive producer on the Oprah show. Seems like everyone in the world is on a first name basis with Oprah's producing team now that the show,"Season 25: Oprah Behind The Scenes", airs on Sunday nights. Don't we love cuddly Brian and cool mommy/producer Jill? The behind the scenes series is waaay more entertaining then Oprah's talk show was all season. Like when Jennifer Hudson lied about going back to her hotel room, when she was really headed to Dallas for a party...and then got stuck in an ice storm...DRAMA. Without sounding too critical, I can't help but notice that a lot of Oprah's team look like they need to listen to the advice they dish out. With the exception of a few producers (like gorgeous Andrea and skinny Lisa) everyone looks overworked and a tad unhealthy.
I've managed to whittle away hours tuning into the OWN network. All those riveting reality programs, like "The Judds". I love those girls, I wish I could have a therapist by my side every time I interacted with my parents. I also watch "Why Not", starring Shania Twain. Shania is afraid "she'll never sing again", which is funny because I could have sworn I saw promos for her show in Vegas next month.
And "Master Class" where moguls like Jay Z, talk about their road to success. I'm revved up to do great things, only to forget when Max refuses to take a nap for 2 hours. And finally, "Finding Sarah", which follows the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, as she tries to get her life back together. Just in case you have not been watching, the series follows Fergie as she faces bankruptcy and a big dose of self hatred, all while she is being chauffeured in a Rolls Royce and living in a palace.
I'm considering going on a TV diet for 30 days...I need a reality show intervention.
