Last Tuesday, we were lucky enough to take a field trip and sit in on a live taping of ‘View From the Bay’ at the ABC studios in San Francisco. It was very fun to be on live television smiling and clapping happily in the audience. The View From the Bay staff were extremely enthusiastic about the audience whooping and hollering and if you weren’t having fun, at least pretending like it was the most fun you’ve ever had. Last Tuesday’s episode was also really special because we got to be on the show with Alicia Silverstone as the main guest! Alicia showed up looking spectacular, really pretty and in great shape. She was on the show promoting her new book The Kind Diet. For those of you who don’t know, Alicia has been a vegan for 11 years and is preaching her new lifestyle to the world through her book offering yummy recipes and commentary on how her going vegan changed her whole life. She was there in celebration of the books release last week and also signed copies of it at Book Passage after the show. You can watch Alicia speaking about the book here… “The Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet”.
As if Alicia wasn’t reason enough to be excited about View From the Bay, Spencer and Janelle were a pretty funny couple, they made us giggle a few times. Talk shows are pretty hysterical, when the host is extremely excited about scarves, metallic lighting, and vegan tacos they start convincing you that you are too. Even if you were not excited, the View From the Bay audience was surprisingly small so they could easily force their creepy T.V. grin and eye contact on you until you laughed. All in all it was an eventful trip we learned how to dress our men for fall , hear the host of TLC’s While You Were Out, Evan Farmer, talking about his renewed love of carpet, and answer questions about Alicia on commercial breaks in hopes of wining a copy of her new book.
