I have been wanting to make a spoof of a news show just for moms FOREVER. I mean, moms need their own news too, right? So without further ado, I’d like to introduce The Real Mom News Show! A news show that’s not really news at all, unless you’re a mom (or a dad!).
It takes a village to make a fake news show, so I’d like to thank the AMAZING people who worked on this with me. They all killed it and we had a blast putting it together. Lizzie Bermudez was so amazing as a correspondent, you’d almost think she really was one (she is). Check out her YouTube channel! Abbey Campbell Cook makes me laugh every single time with her, um, reporting and she has a fab blog as well. Simon Holland is the funniest man on earth and I am honored that he helped me write this. Check out his Facebook page if you want to laugh yourself silly every day. Aaron Fagerstrom made it all look so professional with his killer shooting and graphics genius. Jacquie Haggarty proved once again that she’s perfection personified, even in pictures. Chandra Lund and Amanda Larkin showed off their amazing acting chops. Who knew the moms in this little ‘burb were so talented? Steve Matthews has the best voice on earth. I’m forever grateful that he let me corner him at school pick up to talk him into being my announcer. And finally, thanks to the amazing Jen Mann of People I Want to Punch in the Throat for jumping in and playing the mom who just wants to pee alone. Since she wrote a book with that title, it was all just kind of perfect. And speaking of books. I’m giving away a copy of the book Jen is holding (she wrote it!) Spending The Holidays with People I Want to Punch in the Throat.
