Curtain Call!

My freshman year in college, I lived across the hall from a girl named Jennifer Eitel. She was beautiful inside and out, and as soon as I met her, I knew we would be good friends. We are still good friends today! She is a talented singer and a class act, grade A human being!

About a year ago, I got a call from her saying that she was in Los Angeles visiting her sister, Stephanie. She told me that they were creating an idea for a television show, and they wondered if I'd like to be involved. I was so excited! Of course I wanted to be involved!  I met up with them at a coffee shop for a brainstorming session that left me feeling alive and inspired--I knew something special was about to be birthed!

After countless hours of their hard work, the idea for Curtain Call was conceived: a modern-day variety show with an emphasis on providing a platform for up-and-coming musicians. Of course, there would be a cast of characters who would be regulars on the show, too.  Think "American Idol meets The Office".

When the Eitel sisters told me that they were looking for character actors for their show, my jaw nearly came unhinged. I had just shot my "Wanda" videos, so I showed them to Jen and Steph. They loved my character and decided to write a part for me! The character on Curtain Call is named "Jonelle", and she is the hair and makeup artist for the show. Here is a video clip of Jonelle:

The show is being launched first on the internet. Once it takes off, we hope to make it a web series that will eventually be picked up by network television. 

Go check it out! And if you or someone you know is a musician/singer/band member who wants to get their work seen, definitely send them to the website! It is a great way to get some exposure!!!

"Sweetie! What have I done to you?!"

That was great! I needed a laugh today. I think this is the wave of the future, putting it on the web first and of course it will get picked up! Love it.
