Other than the highlights I mentioned earlier this week, I had some Cali fun in the daytime, too.
It’s Good to Know People–
Or At Least One Really Cool Person
I met “Girlfriendgela” for the first time in person on my first day in L.A. I have known her for over a decade as a part of an email distribution list I joined in college. She is a brand-spanking new employee of Disney/ABC Studios in Burbank. Promptly upon arrival, before I checked in at Lopez Tonight, she took me to lunch and gave me a grand tour. Continue reading
My next few posts recaps some winter “vacay” highlights from last week in Los Angeles, when my daughter had her winter break from school. I flew with her to her dad’s, then took off west. On the first two of my four days in L.A., I attended not one, but two tapings for late-night shows!
George Lopez Taping
I signed up online to join the audience for Lopez Tonight at the WB Studios in Burbank. On my first day in L.A., I was in that audience. The whole process took about five hours: half of that time was just waiting to go into the studio (checking in, adding standby audience prospects, re-counts, lining up, walking, security, and more waiting). The guests were (in order) Trevor Bayne (the youngest Daytona 500 winner ever), Jessica Lucas (of Big Momma’s House: Like Father, Like Son), music by Bobby Valentino with Bobby Brown, and DJ Pauly D (Jersey Shore). These interviews were for a couple of different shows–George just changed his tie. The interviews of the first three guests aired on the February 24, 2010 show (taped the day before), and Pauly D’s interview airs on the March 2, 2010 show.
