Good News!

We've been settin' on a secret children, and before Your Mama explodes into a thousand candy filled pieces, we just have to fill y'all in.

Not too long ago Your Mama was approached by an accomplished and good looking producer who likes what we do here on our little blog. So, after much haggling and screaming Your Mama has thrown caution to the wind and we are now in development for a television show for the 2008 season.

A damn tee-vee show!

Since Your Mama loves all the children so much, even the bitchy potty mouthed ones, we'd love some feedback about what you enjoy about our little blog and what you might like to see translated on to the boob-toob. Also, if any of you clever beavers would like to suggest a title for the show, Your Mama will compile a list and post them for all the children to see who is the most brilliant of our beloved babies.

Email your thoughts, suggestions, ideas, hopes and dreams to TalkToYourMama@gmail.com

caveman said...

that is huge news.
a well deserved congratulations!
remember us when you're on stage collecting your emmys?,grammys? or is it auntmarys?....whatever they award you tv folks with.

Little Miss Sunshine said...

Congratulations Mama! I will tell everyone to watch!

Mama, I'm so excited for you! I love your interior design commentary along as well as your occasional sassy asides regarding wayward starlets & the behavior of celebrities in general.

Congrats Mama on landing your deal but how will the celebrities feel once their location is exposed on national television? It's pretty scary if ya ask me...I love to keep up with the purchases of many celebrities but there are a lot of nut jobs that can literally walk up to their door step and BAM!

All you chilrun are going to be watching you! You have a great blog, and I'm sure you will do an uber classy show.

Congrats!

Call it Real Estalker... duh!

Hippie Canyon said...

Congratulations Mama! Seems like the perfect sort of thing for Bravo. I'll be sure to watch it regularly. Now, about the set... lets, see. Oh, I'll get back to you on that. I have to run now. Aunt Mary is coming over with a tray of her special brownies and Caveman just called. Seems he's planned a big sex party in celebration, so I've got to call Hesperia and get her over here to Hoover the rug. No, not my hair. The one that STAYS on the floor...

aunt mary said...

Oh, Mama, I'm speechless. Not really. Don't let them tame you Mama. First they'll want you to lose your accent, then they'll want you to be nice to boring, talentless people. And how are you going to tell Barbara Streisand to her face that she can't have a filthy pot rack over her island. Oh, well, we'll worry about that tomorrow. Congrats, Mama, dear. We can all say we knew her when.

aunt mary said...

Ok, here's an idea: You know how they show fashion faux pas in those rag mags with the person's face blacked out? Well you could do a do's and don'ts using anonymous houses and rooms. That way you could still be sassy and discrete. They HAVE to let you be sassy, Mama.

Also, you could be cute and evasive about identities, in the style of old gossip columnists. Maintain deniability. You know, become slick and weasily. Grow a skinny mustache and twirl it. And say "Heh, heh, heh".

Wonderful news, Mama! Please keep the name Real Estalker and please, Mama, don't forget your European children. Make sure the show is out on DVD too. Please, Mama!

Mama! This is long overdue. You simply must follow celeb to celeb real estate transactions as well as guess the buyer.

I am so happy for you but does this mean the end of your blog?? I really hope not!

J said...

Congratulations, Mama! This is such wonderful news, but just one tiny favor...please tell us that the blog is staying?

I love the way that you & the Fug Girls handle celebrities. Definitely keep up with the commentary about interior decor.

RLT said...

Oh, congratulations Mama! I am so thrilled for you and for the audience that will get to see all that you do in living color.

I think you should call it Real Estalker TV, just in case there is some legal problem about keeping your blog title if the network owns the TV show.

Mama, if the contracts haven't been signed yet, make sure that there is a provision for making the shows available online! Also, I hope you are getting a piece of the action and, if so, make sure all forms of DVD and internet access are included. That's what the writers are striking for and, really, you are going to be the source of content for this show.

In any case, CAN'T wait!!!!!

Best of luck!

Congrats!!! I'm sure I will be as addicted to the show as I am to your blog. Just make sure they keep your wit and sass in writing the show- because that's what makes this so entertaining...

Congratulations! Now, are you going to be taping poolside, cocktail in hand, wide brim hat, the skinny bitches, the cat, and of course the Dr. Hooter by your side? I can see it now, Dr. Cooter can be like "Stan" on "Will & Grace". We don't ever get to see his face.

Anonymous said...

Ok, I got too excited. I meant the Dr. Cooter both places. We got enough Hooters being flaunted around here already.

tarrah said...

i vote for the real estalker...it's catchy, has name recognition, is of the times and, let's face it, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! congrats on the new gig!!! your real slo mama is proud and bragging to the whole office!

Sandpiper said...

How glorious! Congratulation!
Cyber Hugs to you Mama and to the good doctor!

I'm totally MESHUGGE over this wonderful news! xxoo

aunt mary said...

Oh, god, Mama, I just thought of something. You're going to need a stylist!! You know they aren't doing big hair any more on tee-vee. Mama promise me you won't them wax your hair all up and point it into a teepee like PeeWee Herman back when only PeeWee was doing his hair like that and now everybody does. And the tee-vee puts on 10 pounds don't forget. No more cream for your coffee.

So_Chic, you can come out now. The game is over and the anons have gone home. Mama needs your help.

This show is what is missing on the dial. You are the perez hilton of real estate! This should be on Bravo. Queer eye for the straight guy: real estate edition. You are going to be a huge star..lucky bitch!

Congrats Mama ... You deserve it!

Just remember where it all started & don't stray from your original concept to much ... I used to love The Sartorialist blog then the past year it's become so crap b/c it's got to big - he's leaned over & allowed Conde Nast to f*ck him in the ass! I feel bad saying that but it's true! Anyway mama, point being that you need to keep it real, don't let producers change ur witty commentary & sarcasm to much!

Jon said...

Holy crap! My TiVo will be working overtime next year!

JUST BE YOURSELF.... dont evah change...

please do a show on pear paintings.

Anonymous said...

i wonder if this is some sort of real estate 911 type of program - where wealthy or established folks open their homes and invite you in as an agent of welcome confirmation or astringent change. and you could do kooky things like ponder the pear in art as an aside as well as offer strategies to remedy the horror these witless class has brought on themselves.

of course it would feature your unstinting, warm but sarcastic eye. but it could also include commentary from stalwarts good and true like so_chic darling, caveman, aunt mary, the hippy dude that wants caveman to have his way with him and others who would act very much in the range of Samantha Stevens' extended yet kooky family in Bewitched.

distance and alloofness must be maintained, but in such a way (like on the blog) where folks want to get on board with you cause on the one hand they know you're right, and also cause it does them some good to see the wealthy class marinate in their bad taste.

you could even have a segment called "Bring me a gay decorator" where you profile those of that ilk that are worthy of the title.

As my teenaged chillen would say, 'Rock on your bad self, Mama!'

Yes, they really would say that. Sigh.

Best wishes, and I'll be watching.

How about The Real Estalker? It works for the blog...

Oh, goody, I'm out busting my ass on a picket line during the WGA writers' strike and some yahoo is off getting a TV gig (hope you don't plan on joining the union anytime soon).

Anonymous said...

Mama,

This is my first post (good for me, right) and I have been avidly reading your lines, day in and out. Sassy sums pretty much up what I love about your words, lines and comments about the rich and fabulous' houses. For your show, how about if you get one of your gay decorators to make over some of the houses you have been commenting about (I remember a lot of flower wallpaper, argghh). Like a 'before' and 'after' to show how much more attractive some of these places could be and maybe fetch an extra million for the uber rich. Or how about a historical analysis of the most prolific house flippers' increasing money bag. For the show's name, how about 'In and Out' or just stay with Real Estalker.

I am SOOOO excited!! With any luck you will be able to include some snippits of Dr. Cooter, Linda, Beverly of course Sugar!!
Its about time someone noticed talent!!
All the best Mama!

T.V. does your thinking for you said...

I think you should also do an episode on where the washed up (and broke) stars of yesteryear are living.

Another good one would be to find out which ones over leveraged themselves with option ARMs and the like and are now in real estate doo doo. Surely some of those See-lebrities bought condos in Miami or Vegas! They may be super rich but losing a couple mil sure must suck!

On the flipside...a show on the ones that were smart enough to cash out at the top (multiple properties sold would be the best!) and are actually bubble-sitting (renting) right now.

It would be like MTV's 'Cribs' with an attitude!

Rhett Butler's Bastard Offspring said...

Wonderful, we'll watch!

How bouts having a yokel tourist-type go thru each room first, with them giving a brief opinion as you sweetly yet tartly correct the wayward chillun on why prints/ portraits/ hideous chintzes are the lowest form of dee-core.

And have a vote-off every week, maybe something in the bird streets versus a gaudy condo on the Corridor.

Ah, well deserved stardom........ congrats!

Anonymous said...

First, congratulations. Second, here's my answers to your questions:

I like The Real Estalker or maybe a play on the words Realty vs. Reality as in "Realty TV" instead of Reality TV. However, I think Real Estalker is not only catchier -- it also describes what you do. That can be important in finding viewers.

In a show, I'd like to see more shots of the interiors of the homes. It is a MUST to include prices (what they paid for the home, what they spent on reno's and what they are listing/selling the houses for). Celebrity houses are good -- but not a must. Keep showing us all the variety just like on your site.

It might be interesting to show properties from all over the states (Ca, NYC, etc). You HAVE to keep commenting on the bad interior decorating. Those comments are what make your site different from other real estate sites.

I can't wait to see what you come up with. Don't sugar coat it for television. Be honest about the awful houses -- like the Gordon Ramsay of real estate.

Virginia Girl said...

Oh, Mama! That's wonderful!!! Congratulations to you. I will be the show's biggest fan!

I want to see the long bodied bitches, Lind and Beverly! I hope they co-host.

Soup Doggey Dogg said...

Congratulations and best of luck! I very much enjoy the sassy commentary and the tiny glimpses into your personal life...I feel like, as a TV personality, you'd come across as an edgier, more real and more honest version of Oprah...Just as classy, but you don't hold anything back!

Real Estalker would be a great name.

For the concept, I'm having a tough-time envisioning it: you front and centre with images of the homes or you touring the properties? The latter would be ideal, though probably wouldn't often be permissable...To make it really intersting, you'd have to cut to experts, decorators, designers etc doing commentary...and possibly, to make up for the lack of access to celebrity homes, feature a tour of other spectacular homes for sale? I'm sure you'll find enough vain Malibuers who'll show off their $18million mini-mansions. To watch on TV (vs. the web) we'll need something extra content-wise.

Good luck!

Doodle Whore said...

Congrats Mama! I can't wait to see what you look like. If you ever need some celebrity doodles to enhance your show or blog I'd be honored to contribute.

xo,

West Coastian said...

Congratulations Mama! I'm so excited for you that I might have to borrow one of your nerve pills.

Like the ol' saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it", I'm hoping you can use Real Estalker for the show title just for the recognition that it brings. Same comments about the interiors, exteriors, pricing etc. I can't see how celebs could object if no addresses were given like on the blog.

I wouldn't mind a "what were they thinking" sort of commentary, whether about a house itself or the lack of a gay decorator for the furnishings, window treatments or wall coverings.

Please let it be on Bravo Mama. It would be a great fit for a great show!

Congratulations Mama! Love what you do here. My favorite part of your blog is the snarky commentary you give on the home features (or lack thereof) and the decor.

Hello Mama, Strapping Hunk reporting in. I called it. If you will look back at my wishes to you for the Holidays I said you should have your own Show. Of course, being the part of the international Jet Set - I will be available for reporting around the globe for my Mama. I am a TV personality anyway, so I would be happy to do some packages with my celeb friends. Strapping Hunk reporting live from South Beach, out.

WOO HOO!!!! Congrats, Mama!

Remember your little chilrens when you make it big!!!

Keep up the good work.

Yay Mama!! We can't WAIT to watch! I am MUCH more interested in the Real Estate/Architecture/Design end of the stick rather than the celebrity BS, so I hope the show doesn't waste too much time covering the cele-bitchy end of the business, and spends its minutes showing the actual damn PROPERTIES. That's my request. If it just turns into another celeb coverage show, Boring, but if it stays focused on the RE/Design stuff, Fantastic!
We know you'll do great and we are so proud of you!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Hurray Mama! Way to Go!
- International properties
- Primary residences and vacation homes/country homes
- Please don't waste the precious TV moments showing the "celebrities" and "experts" faces - just do voice-overs while you show the properties
- Please no "aren't we clever" manic photography that makes us shut our eyes to get over the vertigo. Just show the properties, nice and steady so we can see them properly.
Looking forward to watching the show!

The Hollywood Mayor said...

Congratulations mama. That said, I hope you're not going up to the doors of these properties while talking about them (even though that would be the most entertaining, it would also be the most intrusive).

Kudos though

mrree said...

good for you mama!
Love the blog and can't wait for the show.
Own as much as you can & agree with others to maintain Real Estalker (TV or Show to differentiate from Blog in case of ownership troubles/issues).
Good Luck
