Watch Michele’s family tonight on FOX

by admin on July 12, 2011

You’ll never guess what happened to my family last week!!!  

I’ll try and make it short….

I got an audition for the whole family…Lily, Tristan, Andy and me.  It was for a “credit card protection” company…or so  we thought.

We had 2 callbacks.  Then Nick, the casting director, said the Executives are flying out to meet us. 

Nick , who is such a nice guy, felt so bad we had to come to another callback he said he’d like to take us all out to lunch before our meeting.

So, last Monday we went to Stanley’s on Ventura Blvd in Los Angeles.  We had a great lunch on the back patio.

At the end of lunch Nick excused himself to go to the bathroom.

So, we waited and all of a sudden we see Reese Witherspoon coming towards our table.  Lily is quietly freaking out because she loves here so much. 

I’m like, “Oh my gosh…she’s looking at us…why is she looking at us and smiling.”  “She’s coming towards our table.”  “She’s at our table…no way!!!”

She said, “Hi, do you know who I am?”  Lily said, “Yea, your Reese Witherspoon!”  We are now all looking at each other totally confused.

She said, “Thanks for Standing Up 2 Cancer.”  We were still sooo confused.  Then she said, “You just filmed a national MasterCard and Stand Up 2 Cancer commercial.”

OMG!  Then all the people in the restaurant started clapping.  They were all actors.  Then the camera crew came out.  There were probably 60 crew people. 
They had hidden cameras everywhere.  And hidden mics in the plant on our table.

We had no idea this was happening!!!!

Then the Director loved Lily so much he asked if she could cry for him when Reese comes out so he could get it on tape.  She loooved it!  Then he asked if Lily would like to read the PSA that Reese was going to read.  So, Lily then was filmed reading 5 “Queue cards”.  The first line was “Hi, I’m Reese Witherspoon and I Stand Up 2 Cancer”.  Then the Director said…can we cross that out and have it say, “Hi, I’m, Lily Detwiler…”

Can you believe it?!!!

Then people kept congratulating us for getting National Commercial…and saying “Can you say residual?”  This was a dream and I can’t believe this just happened.

We are still smiling!!!

It starts airing tonight, July 12th, during the Major League baseball All Star game on FOX.  They told us it will be airing on all the major networks through September 1st.

Oh, and they said we are now SAG members.  My daughter,Lily, was freaking out!

Thanks for letting me share this with you!!! 

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Summer!|
XO, Michele

Happy Mother’s Day!

Happy Mother’s Day to all you Beautiful Moms!
Mother’s Day is that one day a year that we, as Moms, are honored for all the stuff we do for our kids! 

It’s filled with macaroni necklaces, fresh picked flowers from the neighbor’s garden, breakfast in bed with a bowl of fruit loops and burnt toast. These are the things that make us giggle for the memories that they create. Our kids love us!  And we love them!

My Prodigy Kids

My children are now 14 and 17 years old and they will still make me special gifts from the heart!

I feel blessed everyday because they still say “I love you” before they go off to school and before they go to bed. They’re very busy teenagers and I don’t get to spend as much time with them as I used to when they were little.  Lily has a boyfriend and is super busy with school and her acting career.  Tristan is busy with school, soccer, lacrose and of course his friends.  It’s an interesting time in my life.  It seems as if they have grown up overnight when I wasn’t looking. So, this Mother’s Day is a very special time I can spend with them!   First we’re  having brunch at home.   And then were going for a bike ride at the La Jolla Cove and watch the sea lions bask in the sun.  I can’t wait! 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day celebrating “YOU”! 

XOXO, Michele

p.s.  I would love if “YOU” would share your “Mother’s Day” stories by clicking on “Comments”.
