Well, today was another great day! When we woke up this morning to get ready for our trip Rennie said she was feeling pretty pooped and thought she'd just hang back at the hotel while Clinton and I went ahead to the show. She didn't want to have to ride a wheelchair but I couldn't just let her stay behind. So, I called the studio and asked what our options were for helping our group all stay together. They kindly offered us some special accommodation passes which included a shuttle ride directly to the studio doors.
We all thought this was a pretty sweet deal, that is until we realized it was an AMAZING deal. Not only were we given a ride to the studio, we were also given a guided tour of the whole WB Studios lot! So cool! Those tours typically cost $60/person and we got it for free!
Here are some of the highlights:
The best part of it all was watching Clinton and hearing him cheer! He came into the studio and his first words were, "This is crazy. I can't believe I'm actually here." He wooed and laughed and smiled so much. I don't know which was more fun for me see, Conan or Clinton.
There's a clip they showed from The View of Barbara Walters talking about what she does on the weekends. Anyway, as she's talking the video "cuts" to the audience and a whole series of edited reactions are shown. They were obviously not accurate portrayals of her talking but just put in to be funny. Well, when we got back to the hotel tonight we were all laughing about the show and I mentioned this scene. Rennie laughs and says, "I thought that was funny too, but what was with those people crying? Why would they cry over that?"
I told her it was all fake and we had a good laugh...at her innocence.
