|Several months ago, I shared this photo of a |
Marimekko outfit that I made for Mary, remember?
If you recall, I mentioned that it was for a top secret project. Well, the cat is finally out of the bag. If you read The Hollywood Reporter or subscribe to some of the same blogs that I follow, like Ranch Dressing with Eartha Kitsch, you may have already heard about a little reality special called, Wives with Beehives, that will air on December 27 on TLC. Mary and I were asked to be guests at a pool party scene they were filming and you might just catch a brief glimpse of us (no promises) in the show. While the name, Wives with Beehives, doesn't quite accurately describe the women on the show, it is a catchy title and we will surely be watching - mostly because three of the four stars are our friends!
|Leslie as Santa's helper|
Leslie Buckley, one of the four featured wives, is already like a celebrity in our neck of the woods. Statuesque and gorgeous are really the only two words to describe her and she is instantly recognizable. She is a devoted wife, a mother, and a businesswoman. Stay tuned for more on Leslie as it appears TLC will be running multiple trailers that feature each of the wives.
|Dollie DeVille, The Rockabilly Socialite doing her thing!|
If you follow any vintage lifestyle blogs, then you are probably more than familiar with Dollie DeVille, The Rockabilly Socialite. Dollie, is a wife, cook, crafter, blogger, and working woman. Her awesome, 50's prom-themed wedding was featured here on wacky tacky and we know that she and her husband, Zack will win everyone over with their commitment to the vintage lifestyle.
I know it's not about me, but you can see my feet dancing at 0:02-0:02:005 Hahahahaha!!!
|Amber & Mr. Tiny jumping for joy|
You might remember Amber Foxx from being featured a million times on our blog. Amber Foxx is the preeminent rockabilly songstress of Southern California and has toured the world (most recently returning from a two-week engagement in Australia) with her band.
|Amber & the boys (Chris, Tommy, and Bobby)|
wacky tacky has featured her pink dressing room, her cowgirl/boy birthday party, and the epic desert adventure day we enjoyed with Amber and her husband, Bobby. We love spending time with these folks and are always welcomed with open arms when we unexpectedly (and frequently) drop by their house. We told them that they had better get their coattails reinforced because we will most definitely be riding them! HA!
Aren't they particularly lovable?
We are lucky to count these gals (and their respective husbands) among our friends; I hope that when they become big television stars, they will remember us! I'm sure that they will give you no reason to do otherwise, but please be kind in your reviews of the show. Remember, while reality shows may be slightly enhanced versions of what is "real," the people on the show are very REAL with REAL friends who will give you a REAL bop in the kisser if you're crummy about 'em. I'm so happy for my friends' success and I truly can't wait to see how it all comes together on December 27! I should mention that there is a fourth wife named Shelby; she can be seen in the first trailer featuring Dollie & Zack. I don't know her, nor have I ever met her, but I do look forward to getting to know her along with the rest of the viewing audience on December 27.
|The whole gang (l to r)|
Bobby, Dollie, Zack, Leslie, Amber, Melissa, Nicole, Mary, Bud, and Ben
(Mr. Tiny was playing cameraman)
