On Oct 8 I got up early! I was super geeked to be in the audience of the Wendy Williams show! I got there at a good enough time. They let us in at 8pm. Judging from the conversation around me a lot of her audience are regulars. These feet aren't made for walking and standing too long in heels so I wore my beat up walking shoes until they had us in the ready room. Even by then my feet were not ready. (insert sarcasm).
The hype man was super sexy! His name was Marco. The DJ was so on point. I was dancing in me seat automatically! There was a dance off booty shake to get the crowd hype. I fell for the okie dok when they said the prize was money and a vacation. It was a CD instead. . Me and 4 other people got up there and danced though! Why they wanted booty shaking? I have none to shake so I shook my boobies! The Crowd went wild, screaming and jumping to their feet! I shook what my mama gave me. LOL By the time Wendy came out we were having fun and hyped up!
Wendy had Dr. Oz on the show talkinf about Ebola. "It's not airborne, it comes from touching an infected person and your face and mouth". Dr. Oz is really a handsome guy in person. Wendy is beautiful! Her waist is so small! When she came into the audience she was so welcoming. Not a diva at all. Who she is on camera is pretty accurate as far as I can tell. Even her staff is high energy. After the show was over I signed up for another one. Marco was outside taking pictures with everyone. He's fine but has never been a stripper. I asked. lol I had to know!
After I got to the shelter I got a call to come sing in the subway with Marcqiese!
We went from car to car singing clips is Frank Sinatra and Four Tops songs. It was an adjustment. I messed up and forgot lines! One time I even started off key because another train was running right beside us and I couldn't hear. Marcqiese was visibly annoyed and frustrated. He was a bit rude about it saying he could do this with children and come our better and I need more practice before I get into another car. I'm like, "dude you have to expect a margin of error, a learning curve. At least give me that much". He then decided we would change gears after I got off a train and he didn't. I could have sworn I saw him standing near the door. That's why I got off the car to prepare to move to the next one. As a lady spoke to me, getting my attention, the door closed and he was still on the train. I had to wait for him to come back to the station and while I waited I heard another performance on the end of the track.
An Asian guy with a piano and guitar was singing a Whitney Houston song. His accent was so cute! Marcqiese was beyond annoyed and annoying. He then decided we would play to my strength of singing and find and empty platform. We went to 59th Street and set up at the bottom of some stairs by the A train. I liked it. I killed it! I did till the police had me move and some performer from another end of the station said I was too loud and asked me to keep it down. I didn't even know he was there. We made a lot more money that way though. People kept coming to me saying how good I was. I got a lot of compliments on the train too. A few ladies were throwing him shade by coming to me, making strong eye contact saying "YOU, we're great". A few people even only wanted my contact information because he had flyers and I didn't. I know that didn't sit well with him but I had already addressed the possibility of that
happening when we ate. I honestly do not feel comfortable with using his flyers as a go between for people to contact me through him. Even though I promoted people picking up his flyer I also vocally supported my own page. I need to make flyers.
We left there and we went back to 14th Street Station where the Asian guy once was and set up shop. I got good crowds between trains passings. One lady came to me while Marcqiese sang his turn and told me that I brightened the mood of the entire platform. She said "see that man over there with the jacket on? He looked so mean and troubled when he came down the steps and when he heard you sing his entire body language changed. I saw his face change and a calm smile is on his face now. You did that." I was not expecting that. I was singing "Run to You" by Whitney Houston. Some people dropped money more than once in the bookbag we used to collect money. People were filming me and smiling a lot. It made me feel great. For some reason Marcqiese decided to move and change area's. We went to Times Square but got booted before I finished the first song. It was then time to call it a night. We split the money in half. It ended up being a good night.
