Dr. Phil Show

Some of you may remember me mentioning a book I co-wrote with my husband's ex-wife, called No One's the Bitch, about how a mother and stepmother CAN get along and we're here to prove it. Well, we got a call a few days ago from the people at the Dr. Phil show - they're interested in having us on! They've got a film crew coming to our house tomorrow to film us for a few hours, and then we fly to LA on Tuesday for the show. I am still in shock. In fact, I'm so shocked I'm not even nervous. Yet.

I didn't want to say anything until I knew for sure, but the airline tickets have been purchased! I will let you know when the airing will be as soon as I know. For those of you who know me (my kids and friends) you'll get a kick out of this next part - today I honestly felt like painting but I had to clean my house instead. : )

Holy smokes! That is really cool. Too bad you didn't have more advanced planning so you could TEACH a WORKSHOP while you are out here in Los Angeles. Maybe next time! Can't wait to see you on the show!

Woohoo for you! What fantastic exposure for your book. If you're as warm and personable on the show as you are in your workshop you'll do just great.

My DVR failed today and I missed the show - Any chance you will have the video on your website or somewhere else? I don't know what happened, but I feel so bad I missed the show.
