I got word that I’d be filming with Emeril Lagasse for his TV Show, Emeril’s Florida! I didn’t know what to expect, but knew that if I just stayed calm and spoke clearly and cleaned up a little.
I’d be fine! I have done live TV shows for some local news stations…and then there was that segment on the Golf Channel. It would probably be like that, right?! Um NO! I had NO IDEA! The production crew was HUGE! There were 40-50 people crammed in my little gallery and art shop! There was a crew for everything…even a snack crew!
Because, with that many people, working hard all day, you gotta snack! Lauren was sweet enough to do my make up for me! I wish I had her every day! Emeril’s daughter and her friends came in first and we started making art together at The Shard Shop! It was nice to be doing something that I was comfortable with! Then Emeril and I started “talking story” about Hawaii…it was my home for many years, and it’s where he got his start as a famous TV/Chef star!
WOW! Our goal was to show the world how cool and fun and artsy the area of South Walton is! I’m pretty sure I garbled my words and didn’t make sense, but I’m hoping that serious editing will find something impressive coming out of my mouth!
Then, we all made a piece of art for Emeril’s wife, Alden. We decided to make a pretty “Wine Bottle Still Life” using her private label wine bottles…threw in some pink and turquoise glass with a splash of gold, and voila! It was finished!!!! I’ll let ya’all know when it airs!
I LOVE SOUTH WALTON!!!!
