Talk about editing
We had a good time at the viewing party last night, even though Logan was being a Holy Terror, flipping out at the smallest things, not listening, you know - the usual. There were lots of people, lots of food & hey, as a pregnant woman, it was awesome to just hang out & graze. Yum!

The show started & we laughed. It wasn't as embarrassing or horrific as I thought it would be. Through the magic of editing, it was smooth & we looked like normal people, not the spastic idiot trying to "act" like I felt during filming. But editing, wow. They did a lot of it. No wonder why it took an entire year to air. Each "scene" was lightly scripted where we discusses what we were going to talk about, where we were going to stand, what our hands were going to do, etc. Each conversation was re-shot & we did at least five if not more takes for each scene. Then to watch the show & see that every single conversation was edited down to two or three words? Crazy.

But, it was a good show, a fun party & we had an awesome time. I think we'll get a good laugh out of Miami Vice carpet, "Antacid" Pink walls (because I couldn't say Pepto-Bismol) & swinging around poles in the basement for quite a while.

I want to move! Those houses and yards are HUGE. I kept trying to figure out where the baby belly was and then I came back to read that it was filmed almost a year ago. Duh! You looked terrific and didn't sound like an idiot at all. I was very excited to tell my hubby that I "knew" you.

I have to know...was the pole swinging scripted?? I forgot to set my DVR and had to do baby shower shopping! I rushed home in time to see the show! I kept telling my mom "Ok we need to hurry!" LOL Even my mom was watching, she thought it was too cool I knew somebody on one of her favorite shows. I think you all did great!

Hi, I am a lurker here on your blog.

Last night at 1 am I was half asleep on my couch watching HGTV, when I couldn't believe my eyes.... you were on the show. Really neat.

Erin,

If I remember correctly (& that's not saying much with preggo brain)...

Photographer friend did that as a joke between takes & the producer thought it was pretty funny so she said that P-friend should do it again in the next shot.

So, I guess it was kind of both impromptu & scripted.

You looked so cute on the show! You didn't seem strange or uncomfortable at all, and your photographer friend seems so awesome. The houses were all GORGEOUS with HUGE yards! Maybe I need to leave Fl. I loved your Miami vice reference :)
