I've been looking forward to Ricki Lake's new talk show ever since she talked about it in the BlogHer 'll keynote. I just loved how she described it:
"The stuff that matters to a 42-year-old woman going through a horrible divorce and dealing with body image and aging and aging in the media and raising my teenage son to respect his mother ... It's a process. Unlike Oprah, you know, I am not an expert. I'm trying to figure it out. I'm every woman."
Ricki's continued enthusiasm for being a part of the BlogHer community has often made me smile since then, too, so I'm pretty jazzed that the September 10 premiere of The Ricki Lake Show is finally approaching.
But I never thought I'd be a part of the show -- and so can you! Ricki and her staff have invited BlogHer to join in on a live, interactive production meeting, for a glimpse into the making of a talk show and a chance to participate in the conversation. The Team Ricki production meeting streams right here on BlogHer today: that's Thursday, May 31, 2012 at 7 PM Eastern time.
Agenda for the production meeting:
- An update on the nationwide search for experts and guests
- The unveiling of the cover to RICKI, the new digital magazine
- Preparing to move the show into their Los Angeles studio
- Marketing the launch of The Ricki Lake Show promos and commercials
- Introduction of the show’s new producers and staff.
Just tune back in at 7PM Eastern time tonight at this URL for the one-hour meeting to join Ricki and the show’s producers, staff, and execs. in conversation.
