Back around the end of October, a casting firm from New York reached out wanting to talk about a new docu-series that was in the works with an undisclosed network. I emailed with one of the assistants a few times, filled out a questionnaire and sent some photos of Pete & I. Then I was scheduled for what I thought would be a quick skype meeting with the casting director. Little did I know it was a full on interview via FaceTime. He had me move my laptop in a way that I was showing on the right side of the screen with enough room on the left for those little titles they do on reality shows. I got so nervous but also excited about talking about my LDR story.
After about an hour of being interviewed, he said everything looked good and that he would like to schedule a time to do the interview with Pete as well. When I first brought it up to Pete, he wasn’t at all dismissive of the idea. He actually encouraged me to reply to the initial email to get more information. However, when the time came for him to “go on camera” he got camera shy and decided it wasn’t for us. I’m not gonna lie. I was really bummed out that Pete didn’t want to go through with the hour interview.
It took me a few days to completely get over it. But then the director kept calling me and emailing me and I was so embarrassed to tell him Pete changed his mind that I just ignored his calls and emails. I still, to this day feel terribly bad about it, but there’s not much I can do now! I am still unsure about what network it is and what the docuseries is about, but I think Pete & I would have been great on TV together!
Goodbye 15 minutes of fame! *tear*
If you were ever contacted to be in a reality TV series, would you?
