You might remember that back in September, a camera crew came to my house and filmed a segment for a mysterious television show.  I could barely reveal anything about what had happened because I had signed a confidentiality contract, but now I can spill the details!

IMG_1370

Let me tell you, I never realized how hard television interviews can be until that day.  I really had trouble pronouncing words properly and not stuttering!  I was a little nervous, I guess.  :)

 

The crew was at my house all day that Friday interviewing me and filming my friends (including Megan, Kelly, my neighbor, and Harry’s mom).   It was hard work, and I have a LOT of respect for television reporters now.

They came back on Sunday and did a segment with the Husband, too.  His video has not been released yet but I really cannot wait to see that one!

IMG_1426

So… who’s this mysterious video for?  Why the big secret?  Why did I have to sign away my first born child if I revealed who I was fiming with?

 

If you guessed OPRAH, you were right! :)

 

HOWEVER, I will NOT be on the Oprah show.  Oprah is launching a new television channel called the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) in January, and my segment will appear on a new short story series called The Swell.  Oooobviously, having Operation Beautiful associated with Oprah in any way, shape, or form is INSANE, and I am so, so, so grateful for this amazing opportunity.

 

Check out the video below!  Look for appearances by Husband, Maggie and James, and Megan!

 

Thank you guys for all your support! I’m glad I was able to finally reveal this secret! :)

 

If you feel inspired, post an Operation Beautiful note and e-mail it to me at seebriderun@gmail.com.  I’ll post it on the site!

An encouraging word when you are feeling down is better than any amount of money, food, clothes….stuff!!

    CONGRATS!!!!!! Caitlin, this is sooooo amazing!!!!!! The video is great and very inspirational!

    You mentioned that you felt a little nervous. If you plan on continuing your public speaking, you should look into Toastmasters International (www.toastmasters.org). There are local chapters across the country, and you learn public speaking skills and speech writing. There are very minimal annual dues to join. I belonged for a few years, and it was incredibly beneficial! Although I was never scared of public speaking, I learned a lot and I feel so much more confident when speaking in public. Just a thought!

    I was really thrown off by hearing your voice though..isn’t it funny cause we read people’s blogs and then once we hear the voice it doesn’t sound like what we imagined it would.

    You have a nice voice,but I don’t picture it with you as the blogger I read.So bizarre what we humans conjure up in heads!!

    But never fear it is not a bad voice,just a surprise to me ;)

    Congratulations Caitlin, you looked like a complete pro in the video – no nerves at all!

    You have such a sweet accent! I wish i could say the same about mine, I’m from Birmingham in the UK so my accent is terrible! (Ask your husband to do an impression if he is originally from the UK and you will see what i am talking about) LOL x

    PS YOU’RE BEAUTIFUL!

    Caitlin-is really is incredible what you have started with Operation Beautiful! Women have so many negatives in their life and to see a positive note of encouragement is very supportive of the women’s community. More women like you need to band together so we can relate to one another more often-too often we see girl’s being catty with one another and you are the opposite of that.

    Congrats on everything-you are an inspiration to all women!

    Reply
    • Caitlin April 8, 2010, 7:14 pm

      one thing ive received through OB is that women really do want to be less catty and more accepting. especially middle and high schoolers… it makes me happy!

        Yes! And in the corporate world too! The cattiness/competition carries through until adulthood, and frankly, it’s sad. I hope that through OB, women can eliminate the cattiness and realize that we are all here for one another!

        Again-great work Caitlin!

    Congratulations! I didn’t hear any kind of accent in your voice like some of the other readers, so I must have whatever accent that you have :)

    Oh my gawd!!! That video gave me chills! Bravo! Way to make a difference in others’ lives! I for one can attest that my mom had me start dieting at about 10 years old and have had issues ever since. This year, after getting engaged and a TON of other reasons I’m getting my shit together – and your website(s) keep me going! Cannot wait to share a brew with you upon your arrival in Charlotte! Yippee!!! Congrats again – you rock!

    Congratulations!!! I saw this post in my reader the other day, but kept it marked ‘unread’ until I finally got around to seeing the video – it’s great! I’m so, so, sooooo happy for you and I think you’re doing an amazing job. I especially liked the ‘a smile is a curve that sets everything straight’ message – it really made me smile.

    It’s funny how when reading a blog you get an idea about what somebody sounds like, but you sounded completely different to what I thought. I didn’t think you’re southern accent was that strong, but it’s definitely there! :D
