I sat down to try and write today’s blog post but I can’t – I’m too anxious. Partly because I’m a very high-strung girl and anxiety, well, that’s just what I do. But really it’s because I’m going to be on 20/20!!! As in the TV show (but not the “To Catch A Predator” episode, thank you very much). They are doing a segment on orthorexia and saw a comment I wrote on Mark’s Daily Apple and then read my stuff on eating disorders here.
I get to be the poster child for orthorexia!! (I’m totally putting that on a t-shirt.)
I wasn’t going to tell you guys yet just in case something goes terribly wrong and I make an utter fool out of myself on national television. But anxiety won out. A film crew is coming to my house tomorrow at 9 am. They said they’ll probably be here until 3. They want to film me exercising. They want to film me in my kitchen. Cooking. Can you see why I’m freaking out??
But hey, if you were ever curious to see what my house looks like (stalkers are not invited) or how I look in street clothes – here’s your chance! Although I will warn you that my house is decorated like I ran through IKEA. Blindfolded. And my voice sounds very different in real life than it does in my head. Same with all the voices in my head.
I’m not sure what their “slant” is on the topic and it’s not live TV so you know I don’t have any control over how they edit what I say. So if I come across as a little psycho, well that’s the Charlotte you know and love. But America’s Next Top Model psycho? Egads, I hope not.
So, you know, keep your fingers crossed for me. And your toes. And your legs (what? you want a baby? Try another day!) I’m not sure of the air date yet but I’ll let you know. Maybe, if I’m really cool, I can figure out how to post the video after it airs. Perhaps next time I’ll get on TV for doing something smart instead of doing something stupid;) But hey, it’s all an experiment, right??
If any of you have tips for me, please post them – and fast!!
PS> Yes, I’m aware of the irony of a girl who hasn’t watched TV in a year and half being on TV.
