A couple of weeks ago, out of the blue, I received an e-mail from an individual who alleged she was a “researcher” for the Dr. Phil show. The e-mail stated that she had read this bit about my issue with older women having children and wanted me to call her.
Ever the risk taker, I called the number with the Los Angeles exchange fully expecting to be asked to send a “small fee” to Dr Phil in exchange for being on the show. To my surprise, it all seemed relatively legit. They were putting together concepts for shows and thought this might be an interesting subject.
Immediately, I asked why they would care about the opinion of a completely anonymous blogger? I was told it was because I represent the “average” person. I must say, being called average was one of the nicest compliments I have received in a long time.
The nice young lady asked me to send a photo so they could put it on their board, and that was that. Can superstardom be far off at this point? The last time I was this famous was when I snuck onto the set of a John Butcher Axis video. Heady times, indeed.
Anyway, since that conversation, I have not heard from the fine folks in Dr Phil land. I wonder what could be taking so long? I tried to think of anything that I have written in other posts that might have rubbed them the wrong way. Except for several comments about Oprah’s weight, I don’t think there is anything. (And that shouldn’t matter since my sources tell me Phil and Oprah are on the outs).
It is possible that they have passed on me since I have been so hard on midgets and Eskimos. However, I have been very kind to Sarah Palin so that should earn me some points, right? And it’s not like if I got on the show I was going to rag on Dr Phil’s porn stache or something. I know how to play the game.
So, I wait. If I am asked to be on the show, and it would probably be one of those primetime specials, I will let you all know. I will need a posse to accompany me on my adventure of new found fame and am willing to be bribed to make you part of the team. But hurry, the fame train will soon be leaving the building.
