Mommy Bloggers on FirstRun.tv

Mommy Bloggers Logo 300x144 Mommy Bloggers on FirstRun.tv

That’s me above the first ‘G’

Remember a while back when I told you I was auditioning for TV show about mommy bloggers? My news came to you by way of a blog post I wrote called My Run at FirstRun.tv, and included that video of my son, Quinn, juggling knives over my head. (That was actually part of my audition.) And remember I said I’d keep you posted on the outcome of that audition?

Well, this is the part where I get back to you.

Turns out I made the cut! Yes, I will be one of the hosts on the new TV show Mommy Bloggers. Here’s an excerpt from the official press release:

Los Angeles – They’re six of the nation’s top bloggers who, typically with twists of humor and wit entertain moms everywhere with stories and advice about family and motherhood. These bloggers are moms themselves. They have vast audiences of loyal followers who never miss a word and consider them their virtual friends. They’re in the know and have the scoop and insight that only moms can understand. There are thousands of mommy bloggers out there, but this group of six has risen to the top. And they’re not stopping there. They have joined forces to create a new weekly über blog (actually, vlog) in the form of a TV show called, what else? MOMMY BLOGGERS. The half-hour show will be broadcast on the FirstRun.tv Network (www.FirstRun.tv)

We start taping in a couple of weeks. Think of it as The View meets Desperate Housewives.

The show’s six mommy bloggers hail from all over the country, including L.A., Chicago, the Midwest, Washington, D.C., New York, and I, of course, represent those of us crazy enough to live where it snows six months out of the year (in the Rocky Mountain time zone). We will convene online live each week to talk about mommy-licious subjects ranging from kitchen safety to school lunch to why you can never seem to finagle your way into the fast lane when you’re late to the orthodontist. Since we’re all extremely witty mommy bloggers, we’ll all put our own amusing spin on every subject they throw at us, which of course can only mean one thing—hilarity ensues.

Meet the Mommy Bloggers Cast

Drumroll, please. My mommy blogger cohorts on the show (and their wonderful blogs) are:

And of course, me:

Where the Heck Did Mommy Bloggers Come From?

FirstRunTV Logo 300x223 Mommy Bloggers on FirstRun.tvMommy Bloggers is produced by FirstRun.tv, an online television network that provides original programming for several channels, and covers popular genres such as comedy, sports, action drama, reality, kids & family, talk, how-to, science fiction, and paranormal. The source of the original content comes from a mix of shows produced by StoryArc New Media (FirstRun.tv’s in-house production company), as well as from independent producers.

Former Disney Studios Vice President of New Media Technology, Gary Kleinman, who was with Disney for 23 years, founded FirstRun.tv. A pioneer in new media Mr. Kleinman believes that since it’s now possible to view programming on wireless devices anytime, anywhere, Internet TV is only going to get better. Currently, you can watch FirstRun.tv programming for free on the Internet using your computer, tablet, laptop, or smartphone. However, there is a FirstRun.tv network app on Google Play for Android phones and tablets. And if you want to see FirstRun.tv’s shows in living color on your flatscreen TV, FirstRun.tv is also free on the Roku streaming player.

So there you have it. I’m going to be a talk show “peep” on a new talk show featuring mommy bloggers doing what they do best, which is, um…talk. I’ll be sure to keep you up up-to-date on the show’s premier and its programming schedule.

In the mean time, wish me luck…so I don’t run out of things to say. (Yeah right. Like THAT’ll ever happen.)

    That is awesome, Stacy! Congrats! Can’t wait to see it!

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Thanks, Emily! I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s on and where to tune it. It should be a blast. Right up my alley, if I do say so myself.

  2. Amy

    There is nobody more deserving! It should be a hoot. Can’t wait to see it!

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Thanks, Amy. I appreciate the kind comment. I think I’m deserving, too. But then again I’m biased. ;-)

  3. Drangedinaz.worpress.com

    Awesome! So excited for you and can’t wait to see the show.

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Thanks, Tina! I’ll be sure to let you know when it’s on. I plan on being brilliant, so I for sure want you to see it!

  4. Phillip

    Dear Stacy, Be sure to keep a firm grip on “self”. Oh, and stay away from cosmetic surgery (perhaps it is already too late).

    Sincerely, Phillip

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      I have stayed away from cosmetic surgery thus far, Phillip, and plan to continue to do so. However, that’s not to say I oppose it. If I suddenly grow a hump on my back or a third eye in the middle of my forehead, you can rest assured that I will have such annoyances surgically removed!

      And as for keeping a firm grope on myself, I’m hoping that any notoriety this brings me will result in some hunky, rich dude taking over in the groping department. Preferably George Clooney or Johnny Depp.

      Oh wait, you said firm “GRIP”. Um…never mind.

  5. Vicki Whiting

    What a well deserved selection. Break a leg and leave ‘em laughing! So happy for you.

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Thanks, Vicki! Yes, I’m really looking forward to it. I’ve met the other ladies on the show and they’re a hoot. So I anticipate a whopping good time. I’ll keep you post and let you know when to tune it!

  6. Miriam

    Congrats! So happy for you! And you definitely deserve it!

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Thanks, Miriam! That’s so kind of you to say . I think I deserve it, too, but as I said to Amy above, I’m a bit biased when it comes to things I think I deserve. I think I deserve a million-dollar salary, but I’m not getting anywhere near that. Oh well. Baby steps. That’s how it all starts…

  7. Terri @ The Laughing Mom

    Congratulations! I need a good talk show to watch. Been going through major withdrawal since they yanked Bonnie Hunt off the air. Can’t wait to see the first episode.

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      I LOVED Bonnie Hunt’s show, Terri! You’re like the only other person I know who used to watch that! Why the hell did they take Bonnie Hunt off the air? Actually, now that I think about it, that has me worried. Note to self: DO NOT emulate the Bonnie Hunt Show, no matter how good it was. (No offense to you, Bonnie.)

  8. Lipstick and Playdates

    Wow! That’s great. Congrats!

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Thanks! As a faithful reader of your blog, I think you’ll get a kick out of our show…that is, if it comes off as I have envisioned in my head. And if not, I need to figure out a way to invite everyone over to watch the version in my head, because THAT SHOW rocks. I’ll put you on the short list for that, just in case I figure out how to make it happen.

  9. Linda Galindo

    If they did nother select you I was going to fly out to wherever they are and assist them to understand their error. Congratulations!

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      Yes, Linda, I actually put you down as a threat on my application during my audition, and I have NO DOUBT that your influence helped me get the job. You wield some mighty big power, Sister! Glad to have you on my side. :-D

  10. Dee Macaluso

    Awesome! So proud of you, Stacy. You earned it! Just have fun! Pretend you’re sitting at a table in Whole Foods!!

    1. Stacy Dymalski

      NOTHING can beat the weekly show we do in Whole Foods, Dee. Someone ought to just set a camera up there and broadcast that. Except then everyone would know where the bodies are buried.

      Um, yeah maybe that’s not such a good idea after all.

  11. Hillary

    YAHOOOOOOO! How cool is that!!! I am soooo excited for you!

  12. Amy W

    Sounds like so much fun for you and for us!! Can’t wait to see it.

  1. Mother Bloggers - Episode 1 - Nonsense to Mom's Sense (of Humor)

    [...] taping, editing, more taping, more editing, it’s finally here. Remember back in June I posted a blog about auditioning for an Internet TV show on FirstRun.tv called Mommy Bloggers (which has since been renamed to Mother Bloggers)? And then I [...]
