Jack just posted a comment saying the Oprah link has been taken down, so they obviously have all the people they want to contact and base their decisions on. If you haven’t been contacted twice, I wouldn’t rule that out yet. Remember they will make their decision within a 2 to 3 week period. So don’t write yourself off just yet…and like a true BetteHead, Jack, who is a nominee, graciously wished everyone good luck. No one really knows what’s happening either. Even though I didn’t participate in this particular contest, anytime I do play, I somehow envision myself winning, but keep low expectations so I’m not disappointed. And of course, I’ve never won diddly squat either, so do what’s best for you.
And if I my be so bold, I don’t believe in this “I’m the biggest fan” bullshit. They are the ones in institutions…LOL Sorry, I just had to go there. Some would say I’m obsessive, but it’s not about Bette, it’s about you, the fans. Yes, I adore her, but I’m 52 and I have lots of other interests, but this page is fun to do in many ways because I truly admire Bette’s talent, her work ethic, her philanthropy, her style, and personality. All of these things have influenced me in my own life in many ways. Sometimes it just didn’t fit in with the corporate world….oops!!! But I hope you see what I’m getting at. We’re all the biggest fans for many different reasons…
So whomever is picked…don’t get jealous…just be happy for them. They just got picked over you for some odd reason…maybe they did a better job at providing the producer’s with what they wanted for the show. None of us can predict that. I would have been a horrible person to put on TV because I’m too calm….maybe they want screamers, I don’t know. I guess I could learn!!!! LOL
If you got picked or even applied…you showed you were the biggest fan in some respect. Okay, I don’t know if that made any sense at all and I know for some, no words will cheer them up if they didn’t get chosen, but it’s just life. I am 52 and I still have a problem with life not being fair. I should be over that by now, but I’m not. I still like to hold on to as much innocence and idealism as I can without being ignorant…but it’s hard to balance if you want to be an informed person. Okay…I’m preaching, so I’ll shut up now.
Good luck everybody…I can’t wait to see what’s in store. I’ll be back later with more stuff to tell you.
Much love, Mister D
PS: Jamie wrote in to say that Bette is on page 39 of the new “O” magazine issue talking about her “A-Ha Moment” No I don’t know what the A-Ha is….
