The Real Story Of TV 3′s Tracy Wirtz’ Cast

There are a lot of things you can conceal when you are on television. A cast on your hand and lower arm is not one of them. I mean, I guess you can hide your hand under the desk but then it would become obvious that you are hiding something, kinda like the kid in mid-chew trying to convince his mom he didn't eat the last cookie. Anyway, it's no secret. I had surgery on my right wrist area on July 27th to repair an injury.

Confessions Of A TV Junkie – A DVR Love Story

The following is a true tale written by our good friend and occaisional accomplice Tracy Wirtz, this girl loves her technology!

I LOVE TELEVISION! I'm not just talking about my job in tv, I mean tv shows. And I like LOTS of them. Smart, well-written, dry humor shows are my favorite. I'm not a huge fan of the sitcom. Cop shows REALLY get my juice flowing. And even during the "dry" summer months, there's lots to watch on the cable networks, especially TNT and USA.

Lafayette Named Best Food City – As If We Needed To Be Told

YAY, LAFAYETTE!!! The "Fun Finders" officially declared Lafayette the home of the best food in America and I was SO happy theychose us! Now, us natives already knew this to be true so this was simply affirmation, right? I had the pleasure of interviewing the Parr's on GMA in early July. They were a lovely couple from Florida and she told me they were not told what category they would have until they showed up to start touring the finalist towns. I told them the day I interviewed them that they were welcome to visit the other towns but there was no doubt in MY mind who the winner would be.

Kids Say The Darndest Things

Grandparents will completely understand why I GUSH about my grandbaby. I call her my "Gigibaby" because she calls me Gigi. She turned 2 in March and is the apple of my eye, the moon in my sky.

I love my children more than I love oxygen but this little girl... there are no words. Anyway, I digress.
