Default OMG...My family is going to be on TV!

My parents live in Miami. They live near the headquarters of Univision, the Spanish television station. My mom frequently runs into and lives around a lot of Spanish speaking celebs. They frequent her church and gym. She was enjoying her dance class at the gym when a producer from the variety show, Sabado Gigante, approached her and asked her to be on the show to dance Regeton...a spanish, carribbean, hip-hop kinda dance which is very popular at the moment. After talking to my Mom she found her very interesting.

This year my parents celebrate their 35th anniversary and the producer found their love story compelling. So now she's going to have them on a segment about love stories instead.

My Mom told her that one of her wishes would be to reunite the family. She hasn't had all of us kids together in over 14 years. So the producer called me and asked if I'd fly down for the taping to suprise my Mom. I told her I couldn't without my kids. She said, no problem. My sister is coming. My brother is deployed in Afghanistan. So he's going to write and email and we'll read it to her on the air.

Then she asked me if they could give anything to my mom what could it be that she doesn't already have. I told her my parents have never been on a cruise before. So she says she'll see what she can do.

Funny thing is that I just came back from vacationing there. The taping is next week.

How crazy is that??????

Wow!! That is so cool!! You'll have to let us know when it's going to be on so we can watch. I'd love to see your Mom's face. I don't speak Spanish but I'm sure the language barrier will not be a problem.

The show is going to be taped July 26, one week from today. It's going to air August 20th. I'll put it in my siggy line later. Tomorrow her people are going to call me to schedule my travel arrangements.

The really cool thing is that the show is international and my family in Peru is going to get to see it. My Mom eats up this kind of stuff, as long as it's tastefully done. So far it sounds like it will be.

It should be. The name of the station is Univision. It's on our cable here in Louisiana. The name of the show is Sabado Gigante. Check your local listings.

Thanks guys.

I just talked to my sister. She's a civilian that works for the Arny. She's going to see if she can contact the Public Affairs Officer for my brother and see if we can get him on the show via satellite. It's kind of a long shot on such short notice. But the Army loves this postive kind of PR stuff. So I don't know. We'll see.
