My E! News debut

Posted by | Amy Paffrath | No Comments

I’ve worked at E! for nearly 9 months now. I love it here. Everyday is a new adventure and I’m learning and growing so much. I was given the amazing opportunity to interview the lovely Dita Von Teese for E! News. It was a big deal for me because this was an interview to air on the E! network in prime time.

I met Ms. Teese at the Kress nightclub in Hollywood. The tiny burlesque star was quiet and demure, not at all like the diva I’d expected. She is such a classic beauty and exudes sexiness all 1940. The epitomy of a lady. She and I chatted for about 45 mintues and talked about everything from burlesque dancing, to Josh and Fegie’s bacherl/bachelorette party to men. She even showed me how to duplicate her signature strut. She is a total doll and I am thrilled that my network debut was such a fun piece. All that aside, the biggest pinch me moment was having Ryan Seacrest introduce me. Wow. I’m truly living the dream.
Watch below. Big hugs for all and thanks again for the amazing support. MUAH!

Hello my loves!

Just before I headed back to the Midwest for Christmas, I made a pit stop in Vegas to shoot a commercial for AXE’s brand new line of men’s hair products.  I had an amazing time shooting the commercial in a gorgeous suite at Planet Hollywood.  I got to work with some hilarious, talented, and gorgeous people.  Including Beau Dunn, Brian Schulze and Malea Richardson.   I was thrilled to be on board for such a fun, sexy project.
It was even more exciting to work with Will Speck and Josh Gordon, the men behind Will Ferrell’s Blades of Glory.  Look out for the commercial coming soon!  For now, check out a behind the scenes video I made with my brand new flip camera, courtesy of E!   I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.  Cheers to a fabulous 2009.
