Me on French TV—get ready for DISASTER!

I told you the other day about my horrifyingly hilarious day on a French reality TV show called “Norbert et Jean, Le Défi.” Well, you’re going to be able to witness the catastrophe on November 1. Here’s the link describing the episode. And here’s a picture of me with the chefs, sent to me by the producer.

I’m not lobster-red from the heat in this one, but my sweaty hair is tucked behind my ear. This was the beginning of me melting on set, Wicked Witch of the West-style.

Luckily, on November 1 I will be at the Vegas Valley Book Fair and will not have to see the episode in its full-screen glory. I will be tucked into my Golden Nugget hotel room with Josephine Angelini, watching it on the internet and deciding whether or not I dare show my face in France again!

    As mentioned, somehow I caught the episode. I was watching it with my husband and I said her French accent is a lot like mine. She must be American! (Please don’t offense!) Then I saw your name: Amy, with “ecrivain” under it. And I thought to myself: hmmm, an American writer living in Paris? Half-way into the episode it clicked. OMG! I know her!

    Funniest moments: When you tasted the potimarron for the chef’s tiramisu and said, “C’est bon, mais c’est pas super.” I nearly fell off my couch!

    And, as mentioned, when your son frowned and said “I wanted chocolate.”

    You weren’t sweaty at all! You looked great and did a fab job! It was a really fun episode!

    So funny, Samantha! I’m glad you enjoyed it. I thought it was going to be a catastrophe. Thank goodness for the magic of film editing!
