My 1st trip to NYC + a reality show?!

Leave a Comment

Yep. That's right...I had never been to New York before this trip! Crazy huh?! I was flown out to NYC along with my mother, my best friend Dave and my good friend Jessica Pridham to film a bridal reality show. I ended up showing up two days early, and staying the Hotel Hugo, which was a bit of a disappointment considering how much it cost to stay there, but I was in SoHo, so that explains everything.

Jessica arrived the next day as well as my mom, and we traveled around the city, saw Time Square and we even came across Nick Lachet in Time Square filming some sort of live television. We then settled into the Hard Rock Hotel bar for a few cocktails to warm us up, and watch the 90s rap videos they had rolling. My mom got warmed up real quick, she dove right into tequila shots! haha when in NYC?!

Ah, I haven't mentioned how COLD it was in New York. I was there for that FREEZING, record breaking cold patch where it was the coldest it had been in 30 years. Welcome to NYC Kristen! haha I was FUH-REEZING the entire time, it was also windy. So that made it a thousand times worse. I thought my face was going to fall off. Before my mom flew in, Jessica and I grabbed a spot at a local cafe to escape the freezing cold, and the first waiter we had while in NYC was Australian, just like Jessica. haha! So funny. He even offered Jessica his number when he brought the check. She declined. Poor Aussie boy... sigh.

Filming the reality show (Brides Gone Styled) was interesting! The team of people was awesome. It was actually the coolest group of people I've ever worked with on a set, and I've worked with a LOT. They were positive, helpful, uplifting... I'm not sure why everyone says New Yorker's are rude! I didn't get that at all. We filmed for 2 days, each day was gruesomely long! But hopefully the show will be entertaining, I did cry on national television... so enjoy that! :D
