The Roles of Mob Wife, Sorority Slut, and Medical Detective Will be Played By:

Ok. So I didn't exactly stick to my promise of a Friday post. But I'm back! ...Now.

I did, in fact, go to the Mobster show premier party last week.

It was very bizarre to actually meet the woman I portrayed in the series. Upon entering the party I ran into a Production Assistant that told me the real life Toni Marie was there and was excited to meet me. "Oh shit." was my initial reaction. I mean, what does one say in that situation?? "Sorry your ex-husband's a douche bag, but I had a really great time playing you in your time of complete despair." ...would have been an interesting approach, but not what I went with. It was something more like, "So nice to finally meet you. I hope you're happy with my performance..." (better, I thought). She was super nice and complimentary and totally Mob-Wifey. See below:
Tonie Marie and Me

I must say that seeing myself on a GINORMOUS screen slinking around in lingerie and making an O-face was an experience unlike any other I've had before (NOW I bet you wanna see it?! Eh?). I'm pretty sure my face was as red as my Mobster-wife lipstick. The whole experience was a trip. Mostly it was so amazing to see how many people I have supporting me. The number of messages and well wishes I received blew me away. Such a nice reminder of all the people that are rooting for me. Cheesy as it sounds, I don't know that I could still be doing this without that support. It makes a world of difference knowing that there are people on your team. ...even if it means they've now seen your O face (sorry family).

And then, the very next day I shot a commercial!! This is great on a number of fronts. 1. Paycheck. 2. Booked it through a new agency. 3. I mean, I can cry on demand, I can bring fire to a screaming fight, I can yack into a toilet for "art," but I REALLY must be a good actor if I can believably play a Sorority girl in a hot-pink t-shirt and a pearl headband. Talk about a stretch!

That's me in the pink! Check out "the house" behind me! There were balloons and streamers involved...

It was a near disaster getting to set. Damn the L train! A random shut down caused my mad dash to Penn Station to catch the train to Jersey (Many positive thoughts go out to that cab driver. He was a freakin' champion.) Then an altercation with a disgruntled passenger and the conductor (many an f-bomb thrown on that train ride). But, I finally made it to set (and on time! ...though slightly sweaty and still coming down from my adrenaline rush/anxiety attack.) Luckily the shoot went WAY smoother than the commute. Thank God. Lovely people, quick and easy and though I only got my lines 5 minutes before we started shooting, I didn't fuck it up!! Holla!

In other news, I've had some big time developments in the health business I'm working on. It's pretty amazing to see something coming along that is the product of my small idea that's grown to something awesome (if I do say so myself. ...and I do ;). I have a great partner and she's just as excited and in love with it as I am. I can't wait until I can tell you about it! Soon enough... (ahhh! Suspense is killing me.)

On a more personal note, I got into this health shebang because I was sick and tired of watching people be sick and tired. I wanted to make a difference in others' lives. That being said, I'm gonna be honest, which is difficult sometimes even for me. But here goes: my own health isn't the greatest right now. After a shit load of google time, webmd, late night medical research and my family attempting to play Dr. House on my symptoms (where IS Hugh Laurie when you need him?!?) It's time I turn my focus inward and work out some kinks so that I can attack all the awesome things in my life with full force. I feel like it's been a long time coming, but recent events have made me realize that I need to get my situation under control for good. I don't think it's anything too serious, so don't go freaking out on me. But it definitely requires my full attention and dedication. Health comes first. Life is too freakin' fun to neglect it.

So between that and auditions and a new business and friends' weddings and work and random things like a 5k run where you get pelted with colored corn starch:


Color Run. AKA: Stupid things Americans do for fun.



I've been pretty darn busy.

I'll be back to update you soon. Take care out there.

  1. Oh man! SOOO much stuff going on here. You're "OH," face. How I am sad I missed that. Funny note...the guy who gave the "OH" face in 'Office Space' went o my college. That's right. Greg Pitts put USF on the MAP! BAM!

    But for real, congratulations on all this great mojo headed your way. Seeing yourself on the big screen like that is not that comfortable of thing to go through. I hate seeing my face on the small screen, but the big screen? Even worse. At least you weren't in any compromising...nevermind.

    I do hope you feel better. I'm guessing a trip to Chipotle is out?
