Weezy & The Swish - Notice Anything Different?
For yesterday's podcast Weezy and I brought in our reenactors. They were so good we might hand off the show to them and just let them host the show.
As most of you know, Weezy testified in a certain high-profile trial. Said high-profile trial was reenacted on the E! channel, with actors playing all the various characters. So we contacted Weezy's reenactor to have her on the show. I can't stand for me, or someone who would play me, not to get the same amount of attention, so I brought in my personal reenactor, whom I employee to attend functions as my stand in when I'm not feeling very social. I also send her home for Thanksgiving so that I can do something fun without feeling guilty.
You'll want to listen to tomorrow's podcast (or Tuesdays, depending when it's posted) because it's one of the better ones.
My reenactor, Angela V. Shelton, is a regular on VH-1's "Best Week Ever" and she, along with her performing partner Frances Callier, are people who I go out of my way to see because they're just that good. By the way, there are few performers I go out of my way for. Word on the street is that they have something in development with a certain major network that will hit the airwaves soon. What I'm trying to say is that it's worth your while to tune in this week.
Weezy's reenactor, Laura Buckles, actually played Weezy in the E! trial and was involved in the Internet's first sitcom, called "Sitcom a Sitcom". She explained what she was doing when she "got the call" from E!, and how she prepared to play our beloved Weezy. Plus, she's the first non-Pakistani I've met who lived in Pakistan and whose life was threatened traversing the Khyber Pass. I don't know where that is, exactly, or even if I got the name of the Pass right. The important thing to know is that she travelled to Afghanistan before Afghanistan become cool, like it is now.
Okay, listen to the podcast. I've got to go back to work.
I love you!
