Hi everyone... and thank you all for your patience during my travel absence. In the past month, I've been from the west coast (San Francisco, Seattle, Portland) to the east coast (NY) and on an Olivia cruise that took me from San Diego to Puerto Vallarta - all in the name of "Exes & Ohs!"
But I'm back - and today I'm giving you a recap, a what-now, and I'm answering some of your most recent questions. That's a lot to do... so let's get started!RECAP
-- In SF, Seattle, and Portland, I got to screen the first two episodes of the show and then answer audience questions... I also filmed one of my afterellen video blogs from my hotel room in Seattle. If you'd like to check it out, click here
-- In NY, I did radio appearances on the "Ryan & Caroline Show" (ClearChannel Radio) and the "Derek & Romaine Show" (XM Satellite Radio), was interviewed for the NewNowNext Noise video blog, and I got to meet and thank all the talented folks in Logo's NY offices who have helped to put "Exes & Ohs" on the map (and on the air and online). And, of course, I appeared at a Go Magazine event with Margaret Cho and The Cliks!! Here's a photo of all of us together:
Oh, and did I mention that my entire NY trip was only a day and a half???? Whew! I'd have stayed longer, but I had to leave the next day for...
-- The Olivia cruise
! I went with Megan Cavanagh (who plays Chris) and we had a great time. Our screening was a HUGE success! We were originally supposed to do it in the ship's screening room, which seats maybe 60 people. When Megan and I first arrived, it was about half full. Then, in the middle of us saying to each other that we really hoped more people would arrive, we turned around and saw that the room was filled... and then standing room only... and then a line out the door!! There were so many people that we had to move our screening to the large theater, where Lili Tomlin had performed on the first night!! It was fantastic... And the folks at Olivia were very kind and took great care of us.WHAT NOW
Now I'm back home - and back to work! What does that mean? Well, I'm continuing to do weekly "Exes & Ohs" video blogs for afterellen... they're usually posted on Tuesday mornings and you can check them out on the afterellen
I'm also working on a new television project, meeting about some acting projects, and I have a couple of other things in the works that hopefully I'll be able to tell you about very soon... And, of course, I'm getting ready for this Sunday's Power Up awards
!! I'm very proud and excited to be one of this year's recipients...YOUR QUESTIONS... ANSWEREDTo: Anonymous, who wanted to know how many episodes are in this season.
There are six. In the U.S., episode #5 airs tonight (in Canada, it airs on Thursday). There's no hidden 7th episode... so after you see episode 6, that's it for now. We're keeping our fingers crossed for a second season. As soon as I know, you'll know!To: Nico_lette, Francyne, Blue, and other readers around the world who don't get the show where they are.
Thank you so much for writing - and I'm sorry you're not able to see the show yet... I've let the folks at Logo know that I'm hearing from you, and I know they're working on making the show available outside of the U.S. and Canada. In the meantime, please send them an email
and let them know who you are, where you are, and that you'd like to get "Exes & Ohs." That information will help them a lot! Also, just so you know, the afterellen site does recaps
of the show every week that are simply hysterical! So until you can see the show, you can at least keep up with the storylines...To: Janice, who wants to know when I have time to catch my breath.
Fortunately, I've asked several friends to breathe for me and they've been doing a great job at it, so I'm fine. ;-) To: Anonymous, who wants to know if I can get Showcase to post additional episodes of "Exes & Ohs" on their site.
Sorry, Anonymous... I wish I could help you, but sadly my tremendously impressive superpowers always seem to be gone the minute I wake up. ;-) However, YOU - yes, YOU! - have your own tremendously impressive superpower... email! The folks over at Showcase are very nice and they appreciate viewer feedback on their shows. So feel free to contact
them and tell them that you'd like to see more of "Exes & Ohs" on their site. In the meantime, the great news for you is that you can see all the webisodes on the Showcase site (and on the Logo site as well). A webisode, by the way, is basically a scene that wasn't included in the actual episode that aired on television. So enjoy!
Thank you all for continuing to read this blog and follow along on my journey with me. We've been getting great responses from viewers and critics alike about the show - and I couldn't be more proud. I'll come back later this week to share some of our reviews with you but in the meantime, enjoy the show!
And if you like what you're seeing, please take a moment to let Logo know. The viewer feedback
means a lot to them - and to us.
