Ever wonder what the Dancing With The Stars people are doing before they film the tension filled results show?
Well, in the case of DWTS host, Tom Bergeron, he does charity work. My good friend Hal who is a TV writer was picketing outside of the CBS studio where Dancing With The Stars films. He told me that during his morning picket shift, Tom came out of the studio and showed his support of the strikers by handing out around fifty Starbucks cards each with twenty bucks on them! I'm no math whiz but that's like a million dollars, right? Okay fine, $1000. But still, that's huge!
According to Hal, Tom told the crowd "I know it's not much, but go get yourself some lunch at Starbucks."
I love hearing the stories about the show of solidarity during the writers' strike. Be strong!
P.S. When I'm on the line, can someone please bring gift cards to Kitson? Thanks.
