Behind The Scenes of
Politically Incorrect Show with Bill Maher
Virginia & Lourdes S
This time there was no need for us to wake up so early in
the morning just to get tickets for the PI show. We already called in ahead
of time and reserved our seats. We went to the CBS studios at 12:30pm and
made to wait under the sun. Unlike at the NBC studios, the waiting place was
shaded. Since Farmer's Market is across from CBS, we just loitered and
passed the time there. Imagine for the past 13 years we've been here in Los
Angeles, we have never stepped inside of Farmer's Market until this
afternoon. We know it's there, but we've never been there. After a while, we
went back in line coz we wanted to be in front. People were lining up for
the Roseanne Show and kept telling us we're too early for the PI show. There
were so many people for the Price Is Right Show, too. We found out that the
people lining up for the Roseanne Show were being paid to be a part of the
audience. Imagine that!
There were 2 tapings of the PI show for the same day. We
enjoyed ourselves. We had good seats. Lucy Lawless was facing us. Thanked
God. We were seen on TV. Everytime they showed the two women guests you can
spot us. We couldn't make gestures like the "peace sign" coz we were told it
might look like we're putting "devil horns" on the people in front of us.
On the first taping, it was for last Thursday, 4/13 and the
guests were Lauren Hutton, Deborah Norville and two men. For the Friday's
show, we believe there will be a short skit in the beginning. The guests
will be LUCY LAWLESS, Candy Ford, another woman (sorry we didn't get her
name) and the man who won in "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire."
Lucy was great and witty as always. She listened to whoever
was speaking. During one of the breaks, since she was facing us, she LOOKED
in our direction and our mom waved at her and we did the same and she
acknowledged with a SMILE. We were so happy. We couldn't talk to the guests
coz a person was doing some entertaining and he was so loud.
The topic was on taxes, gay people etc. The host, Bill
Maher, commented that Lucy Lawless talked funny. He couldn't understand what
Lucy said when she commented about log cabin republicans and Lucy said "the
bears." He kept saying, "what?" He even laughed when Lucy mentioned about
Tony Robbins changing her life around. He even called her, "Princess
Warrior" and she quickly corrected him, "Warrior Princess." We weren't
really paying much attention to the whole discussion coz we kept our eyes on
Lucy. We'll watch and tape it tonight.
Unfortunately it was over and the guests were whisked away
so fast. Only 1 Xenite was able to get her t-shirt autographed by Lucy.
That's all. We couldn't follow her anymore to NY and that'll be too much.
