This is one big reunion for me.It’s been a long time since I was on Momversation ( or as I think of it the more successful spin off of coolmom) Recently Momversation retooled and became a mega site, more like a magazine if you will. With different channels of programming. One channel is still bloggers talking like Old Momversation. So that is reunion number 1.
They are doing some stuff with Ricki Lake as a tie in with her new show. I haven’t seen the new incarnation, but I use to be the token white comic on the last season of her old show and loved doing it. I would get flown to NYC, jump up and say one or two jokes and then get residual checks. Very sorry when she decided to not continure the show. Ricki was a nice lady. We got on well and I saw her some socially in LA after that since I knew a guy she was dating at the time. I wish her well in her new marriage and show. That is reunion number 2.
When Momversation started out and was helmed by dear friend Rob Morheim ( now producing a morning show in Chicago) one of the original panelist was Karen Walrond of Chookooloonks. Karen is one of my virtual friends. I have never met her in the flesh, but felt like I had. I always enjoyed when we would versate on momversation. Prior to doing this video we spoke on the phone for about a half an hour. I adore here. She is so much fun. I hope to finally meet her at the Evo conference this July. Reunion number 3.
I hope in the future if RIcki does more of these she doesn’t film the intro on her set. She is warmer than that kind of staged setting delivers up. But, if she keeps it up fine, but I would like that pro lighting as well!
