This is not a dirty posting…bear with me. I get a lot of emails, everyday. My spam box is over 1,000 emails (must clean out). But this email stopped me in my tracks.
Who doesn’t watch ABC Television’s reality show, Wife Swap? WE DO! My son and I are generally amused and astounded at the dichotomy of the two families being portrayed.
Here’s the deal: two families and the wives switch lives for one week. The first few days they have to live, act and follow the rules of the other wife in her respective home (following me yet?). The last few days the wives get to change the rules and which usually causes a little chaos for the families…but also opens them up to new ideas and thoughts.
So….imagine my surprise when I received a request from one of the producers of the show – read below the email:
Hit Reality Show Casting Dynamic And Organized Moms!
The hit reality show, Wife Swap, which airs on ABC Television’s prime time line-up is looking for outgoing, unique families to feature on the fourth season of our show. Specifically, we’re looking for moms (or dads!) who are also event planners…women (or men!) who pride themselves on being detail-oriented and organized and carry those qualities back to their homes!
If you’ve always thought your family belonged on television, we want to hear from you! Families must consist of two parents and at least one child between 7 and 17. Families that appear on the show receive a $20,000 honorarium. Anyone who refers a family receives $1,000 if that family is cast in an episode.
Contact me if you’re interested in learning more about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Please include names and ages of all family members, a brief description of your family and a photo.
Danielle Gervais Casting Producer, Wife Swap
I have politely declined this invitation to try out, although I fit the bill of being a woman, mother, wife, and event planner….and while I am on television every week….I’m not sure my family belongs there.
However YOU probably do!!! Please read above in red…..let them Danielle know I sent you….and you can keep the $20k and I’ll get $1k.
Come on….it sounds like fun. No? And you get some good coin for the opportunity.
