December 2008 - Amy Paffrath
I recently got the
to work with Drew Barrymore on her latest cover girl campaign. Here is a pic of me in a blond wig, that’s because the last time I stood in for her, she and I had the same hair color. But you know us girls, gotta switch it up! She looks incredible as a blond or brunette.
Working with her again was an inspiration for me. To see an actress, who’s been doing this literally her entire life, get excited about her latest gig is so refreshing. She was literally giddy to utter the famous phrase, Easy Breezy Beautiful. It was so cute. I loved seeing that excitement in her after all these years. It told me to be patient and let the universe unfold the way it should! OH, fun fact! We shot the commercial on same lot as the new J.O.N.A.S show and my first day, I strolled up with ray bans on and who do I see, all 3 Jo Bros chillin at a picnic table eating lunch craning their necks to see who I was! LOL, toooooo funny! Man Hollywood is so amazing!
During the horrible tragedy that Jennifer Hudson went throught with the triple murder of her family members, I was thrown on the air at E! to report the latest details. It was an incredibly busy day at work Here is one of the breaking news segments.
That same day I was also on CNN’s Issues with Jane Velez Mitchell. That was an amazing experience and brought me back to my live TV days at KOMU-TV in Columbia, MO.
On a lighter note, I also got the honor of announcing Hill’s stars Heidi and Spencer’s recent marriage.
This time we used the actual news set! It was so cool! It’s where Seacrest stands on a daily basis! I think he and I would make a great team, someday 😉
In addition to all these great opportunities, I’m shooting a pilot for E! on Monday with Ken Baker the gossip maker, that we think has a realistic chance of getting picked up! So excited to work on project from the very beginning with my man Ken Baker. If all goes well our show will be on E! international very soon. I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
