Daytime TV for the UK Desperate Housewife USA
Well, it’s a talk show – Dr Oz – that I made it on to, not Days of our Lives or The Young and the Restless, which will be my next mission!
When you take a look you’ll see they totally Americanised me for this segment on the show…. I mean TOTALLY!
As my dear British friend Wendy said upon seeing me on this today: ‘Only for opening your gob you’d have passed as an American!’
Oh, hair and make up and wardrobe TV people, you totally Americanised me for daytime TV with your hairspray and lipgloss and jackets. I stood there as an all-American middle class suburban desperate housewife on TV. Oh how very odd and amusing!
Anyway, here’s the clip for you to chortle at. (NB: I nod. A lot. Even though I have no idea what they’re saying to me 😉 )
It’s interesting because the Brits who’ve seen this are really tickled by this transformation and video, as I am.
Let me share the post-viewing chinwag with my Brit chum Chris (aka @thatbritguynyc):
Chris: You were great in the video, love it! And if I may be so bold.. classically ‘Carry On‘…….You on national ‘murican TV stroking your pussy on video.. and talk of musical beds… *Sid James laugh*
Me: Hahaha! It was so hard not to say something funny or rude and I had on the tip of my tongue to say ‘Well, I do like a quick one before bed’ and wondered if they would know I was referring to drink or not….!
Yep, that’s how we Brits roll!
