Raw, Live, and a Great Time: my Experience on an Internet TV Show

Posted on

I’ve done my fair share of activities involving cameras before… I spent a number of years modeling, and have had parts in film ranging from principal character in indie movies to Generic Background Dancing Chick in music videos.  But I’ve never really spoken much on camera using words that were MINE, or about anything personal. Today, that changed when I appeared as the guest for a raw food and lifestyle program called Blythe Raw Live.

I was more nervous than I think I’ve ever been for anything filmed, because I always knew before that as long as I stuck to the lines I memorized, all would be fine.  But here, there wasn’t anything to memorize, and ever since the Lyme I have a hard time feeling confident in my thinking/speaking abilities.  Sometimes I misplace words, sometimes I lose thoughts in the middle of a sentence, and other times I have a thought that I just. can’t. get. out. of. my. mouth.  I was such a bundle of nerves that I didn’t even get to try the really delicious looking walnut-apricot boats Blythe made on the show AFTERWARDS, because my little tummy still hadn’t chilled out enough to accept sustenance!

Thankfully, I was able to get out most of what I tried to say, and I don’t think the average person would assume there is anything particularly wrong with me, so that’s a total plus.  I do feel like I look really fidgety and am kind of swaying oddly, which is funny because I was worried I’d look too stiff.  The crew for the show were all incredibly sweet, and Blythe herself was one of the most shining/vibrant people I’ve encountered before.  The energy level she kept through the entire show was beyond impressive; when I watch videos online, I am always drawn to those who seem genuinely excited about what they’re presenting.  She has that down pat!

Here is a link to the episode of Blythe Raw Live today- which over 14,000 people watched live!!  I’m about 45 minutes in, discussing my brand, Rawk-n-Roll Cuisine, as well as how I beat Chronic Lyme Disease holistically.  The segments before mine are great too; the spirulina mask Blythe makes is something we are going to have to try here at home soon.

These are a few stills from the shoot:

Let the kale chip examination begin!

I don't know why, I just love this one.

Two of our flavors: Notchos and Buffalo Bill Cowboy Kale Chips. Blythe's expression when she tried the Notchos was priceless! People never expect so much flavor.

    • Thanks so much!
      I didn’t look quite as chill as you did there, but I think you’re a bit more well-versed in speaking on camera about your experiences/views, and you’re probably a little more laid back in general. 😉
