Look Ma - I'm On The Radio!

OMG - I'm soooooooo sorry guys that I didn't give you any heads up about the whole Playboy interview thing. Everything happened so quickly that by the time I realized it was for real, I barely had enough time to mention it here.

My head is still spinning! So let me take a deep breath and tell you what happened...

OK, a couple days ago I got contacted by a woman claiming to be from Playboy Radio. I say "claiming" because I've been contacted by other people before with all sorts of weird offers. One of them was some guy claiming to represent Playboy's "Hottest Butt" contest and he wanted me to talk about it on this site. So needless to say, I'm always suspicious of anyone offering anything.

Since it was a woman who contacted me, I decided to give her the benefit of the doubt. Turns out she was the real deal and wanted me to be interviewed on her show!!! I was in shock! I mean, it's exciting to be asked to talk on the radio, but it's also scary because I still need to stay anonymous. So we did a back and forth for a couple days before I worked up the courage to do it.

Funny thing is that I was too worked up over the interview to remember that it's exactly the kinda thing I should be talking about on the blog. Whoops. So I left a quick post and before I knew it - I was hiding in my car in the parking lot behind The Business pretending to be on a VERY long cigarette break. I figured that was easier to believe than "I need 10 minutes to reveal all our dirty little secrets nationwide on satellite radio." They asked I come on next week to actually tell some stories, so I'll probably do it again.

So what did you guys think? Can I turn this into a weekly appearance on the Today show?

Despite all that you sounded pretty relaxed.

It'd be cool if you did your "Freak of the Week" on the show.

I thought you were fine, but that as is often the case, the hosts were more interested in hearing themselves speak than in listening to you. I think you'll be a superb regular guest, because once they get past the idea of who you are and what you do (things with which we are already familiar!), then you can simply be you!

Chris is right.

CJ is fine as a fantasy, but that accent just kills it.

Still like your writing, but let's keep it at just that.

I listen to the interview and thought you were great. I am a long time listener to the playboy channel. I just can't believe that you were on the morning show. I think you would have done 10x better on the Tiffany Granath show "Afternoon Advice" Maybe you can get a weekly slot there. Good luck!!!

CJ - I thought you did great! (Just now got to listening to it.) You sounded fine. Don't listen to the pinheads complaining about your voice. You're a Philly girl (sort of). Leave it be, y'know?

Here's what you have going for you that no one else does: you're willing to talk openly and candidly about what you do for a living and that has an intrinsic value.

I'll write more via an email that I hope you check.

I'm listening to it right now, CJ.
It's hysterical. The male DJ is talking like he's a bit of a tool, though.

Congrats, Doll. :)

You did just fine. They'd be smart to make you a returning guest.

emmm jaye peeeee said...

i think it's funny that people are upset about CJ's accent. Geez! She's a real person, not (just) some internet jack-off fantasy girl...

Anon,
I was nervous as shit!

Red,
I was supposed to tell a couple of stories, but we didn't have time. Oh well.

Chris,
THANK YOU!!!! That's the nicest thing anyone has every said about my voice.
