Saying "yes" for a guesting stint at QTV's Sweet Life did not take much prodding.

"Mom! Just say yes!" said daughter # 3

"Mom, you've arrived." daughter # 2 added

"Mom! I'll tag along." quipped daughter # 4.

After Googling the show and the names of the persons who e-mailed me, I finally texted the mobile phone number in one of the e-mails. So, everything was set. I was to come on January 12, 8:00 P.M. at Channel 7 Studios for the taping. I was to wear something casual and please do not eat as there'll be a buffet at the set and an artist to do your makeup, said Eric, the show's researcher. I told my daughters to keep the guesting bit hush-hush until the taping was done.

Crap! EDSA was at it's usual traffic. I left the house at 6:15 P.M. and traffic was light up until the flyover going to Rockwell. Daughters 3 and 4 and I crawled our way up to Greenhills flyover and barely made it to the 8:00 P.M. call. I met another mom blogger, Cielo of Brown Pinay. She was also guesting the show. The segment writer, Real, asked us a few questions relating to our blogs. He said he found our blogs through Google. The segment, he said, was about parenting blogs. Huh? Whaddah? My blog is a hodge-podge of topics and articles!

Anyway, by 9:30 P.M., Snowhite, the make-up artist, started to do me. Look at my transformation. Seems like I was Adobe photoshopped.

By 10:30 P.M. Lucy and Wilma were done with their dinner and change-dress and were all set to continue with the taping. I was introduced to Lucy and was dumbstruck by her beauty. She was gorgeously-awesomely-flawlessly-beautiful. She was kind and very soft-spoken too. Now, I truly understand why Richard Gomez left me for her.

In the picture are daughter # 3, moi, best bud Lucy, daughter #4 and best bud Wilma. My daughters are about 5'5" without heels and I was wearing 3"-heels. Still Lucy and Wilma towered over us. They were both wearing ultra 4" high heels. My girls and I are quite fair but beside Lucy, we were Indios!

Having interacted with Lucy Torres and Wilma Doesnt, I can truthfully say that these two are so down-to-earth and without the usual "air" of celebrities. The two balances the show: Lucy as the straight and serious host; Wilma, as the light relief but nonetheless, highly intelligent and well-informed like Lucy.

I wish I was given at least a week to prior to the taping. It would have done me good if I lost some weight first. Just look at my tummy! The holiday gluttony was still evident.

The taping was done by 11:45 P.M. We bid our goodbyes and set off to go home. I was told that my segment will be shown on January 21 at 5:00 P.M. at QTV on channel 11.
