Talking with “The Talk”
New York City can leave behind some great memories! Yesterday, I attended a live taping of the new talk-show The Talk live from New York City!
The show stars some of the funniest women on talk show television today: Julie Chen (Big Brother Host), Sharon Osborne, Sheryl Underwood (Comedian), Sara Gilbert (Big Bang Theory) and Aisha Tyler (Comedian). The show had two guest appearances: Rachel Ray (Who doesn't know of her) and the one and only Gayle King (Editor @ Large for O Magazine).
For all of my West Coast readers, the show normally tapes in sunny Los Angeles, however, it comes to NYC twice a year. Our day started by lining up at the Studio door at 8:00am! Guess what... we were first in line! I attended the show with my grandma and sister who both love The Talk. We entered into the CBS Broadcast center around 9:45am and went through security and received our badges! At 10:30am, we walked onto the set to dance music that got everyone dancing and pumped up for the show! Now, being first in line does have its perks! We sat right behind all of the VIP's including Aisha Tyler's family! How cool is that? We had the best seats in the house!
During the commercial breaks we were allowed to interact with the audience. I decided to take it one step further and call out to the hosts during each break! They all waved back, joked around and thanked us for coming! Sheryl even had a conversation with us while we were off camera! Let us not forget about Gayle King who was so excited we loved her! All of the audience members got a pair of diamond earrings... can't even use them but, the experience made up for it! The producers threw out t-shirts and Liza Minelli CD's luckily I caught both!
It was one of the most memorable experiences ever! New York City has so many great things to do if you search around and have an open mind! Many talk shows tape in NYC and give out great giveaways!
