The TLC reality shows were mentioned in one of the other threads and I was wondering if you would go on the show "A Baby Story" if it were in your town?

I think I would consider it if I were pregnant again.... but then I'm paranoid and I would worry about psychos out there who would see it and use the information to kidnap my kid.

I would go on trading spaces in a heartbeat--our bedroom is plain white walls with offwhite carpet and no life at all. I was sick of decorating by the time we got to it.

The personal ones? No.

I am trying to convince my DH to call "While You Were Out" so we can have our kitchen redone. Also, I kinda hope they would send me to a spa. How cool would that be? He is not going for it, though.

I don't think I could do "A Baby Story." Too much loss of privacy for me. I would not want people to see me laying in a bed with my legs wide open and sweat pouring down my face. Ick! If I ever did it, though, I would make a big production about breastfeeding. I have seen maybe 3 mothers on the show breastfeed.

Speaking of the "personal ones," have you seen the "Personal Story?" I could use a boob job and some liposuction, but "on the air?" OMG.

no i would not go on a 'reality' tv show. first reason is that my family life is private. it is something i charish and whos value is not negotiable. Second reason is that i worry about others knowing too much about my location etc. it would be a cold day in he!! that someone walked away with one of my kids and lived. The third reason is for the privacy of my children, i try and teach them the value of privacy and the 'behind closed doors' rule.

good question though!

Nope. But I'd do Trading Spaces in a heartbeat. Especially if I got to work with Vern and Ty!

no, i have dibs on them, but Carter, from TS Families, isn't too shabby either. With my luck I'd draw carl--he is the spitting image of my dad.

I'd be worried that I'd come back 48 hours later to a room with red walls, a mural on the ceiling, and my favorite furniture chopped to pieces...

No way, no how. I'd rather stick needles in my eyes. On the other hand, my DS1 was filmed for a national news magazine show 10 years ago. He and I were on "Eye to Eye" with Connie Chung. It was exciting, it was an experience. But it was short exerpts and the focus of the show was not just us.

I'd go on just about any of them...but I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to do Trading Spaces w/Vern and Ty. My luck would be Hildy and something awful on the walls though. That woman is a loon.

I LOVE Maternity Ward...it filmed at the hospital I had DS at about 8 months after he was born and I was so p*ssed that I'd missed it. They don't actually show anything icky (like your crotch or pubes) on the shows, so it really wouldn't bother me. C
