What was your first radio job? I interned for a morning show, and I got to go to many red carpet events, so I LOVED it.
What was the worst job you ever had? hmm...this is a tough one. I think I've liked all my jobs, but some have been harder than others. I think the toughest was charging for parking at the Orange Blossom Festival in Riverside. We had to flag people to come to our lots and charge them, all under the heat of the 90 degrees�sun...and did I mention I forgot the sunblock? Yeah, not pretty. The second hardest was probably being a telemarketer. I had tons of people yell at me and hang up. I don't blame them, but hey it was my job to interrupt their dinner hehe
Most embarrassing on-air moment?�I'm not sure that this ever aired, but messing up a reality�star's name...his last name was Fairplay and well I said something else ; ) Oh and also interviewing Carmen Electra and calling her Jenny McCarthy oops! But the worst was last year when Mark & Kim revealed that I had a crush on my personal trainer...on the air...and while he was on the phone! I don't think I've ever blushed that much.
Best experience in radio? Meeting some of my closest friends, tons of celebrities and our wonderful listeners. And hearing myself on the air for the VERY first time...I was like "Oh my gosh...that's me!"
If you weren't in radio, what would you be doing?�I would be a broadcast journalist, an actress, a writer, a lawyer, a stylist, a PR person or a school counselor.�
What advice would you give to anyone who would like to get into the business? I would say intern, intern, intern.�Work VERY HARD, be persistent, network, and be willing to make sacrifices.
Best artist you met/interviewed?�
WOW this is tough...I've met lots of cool people, but I was SUPER excited to meet Steve Martin because he's AMAZING. As a 90's kid meeting Bob Saget from "Full House," and Scott Baio from "Charles in Charge" was a big deal. I also�probably earned major cool girl points for scoring a sit-down interview with Matthew McConaughey ;) Still, the ULTIMATE COOLEST person I've met has to be JOHN TRAVOLTA!
So Gerard is a HUGE tennis fan, which means I've learned A LOT about the sport in recent years. In fact, we have an annual tradition where we go to the big Indian Wells tournament and make a fun weekend in the desert out of it. Well this year we didn't have to travel that far to watch some great tennis. On March 4th UCLA's newly renovated Pauley Pavilion hosted the L.A. Tennis Challenge. It was perfect for us! You know this proud Bruin is always looking for an excuse to visit her alma mater. And Gerard is always looking for an excuse to watch tennis. Seriously a match made in Heaven!
Well, not only was I impressed by the new Pauley, but the lineup was also outstanding. There were three exhibition pro-set matches. The main course was Djokovic vs L.A.'s Mardy Fish in singles, followed by a doubles match between Djokovic and his childhood idol Sampras against SoCal natives The Bryan Brothers.
Djokovic killed it! I think it was due to the crowd's energy. Everyone was so happy to see him...the #1 tennis player in the world...finally playing in L.A...HUGE! He filled the house...and not just with regular tennis fans, but also with some big hollywood names including, Bruce Willis, Rainn Wilson, Dr. Phil, Jodie Foster, Gerard Butler, Keenan Wayans, and more that I probably couldn't spot.
One of the highlights of the night was when Rainn Wilson took over the umpire chair. He was hilarious! It was a great night! To quote my friend David, or someone he quoted haha "tennis is alive and well in L.A."
