Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus is in town, and I got to go behind the scenes.

Corinna with Todd the Clown

The highlight of the day was getting to be a “clown for a day”. That included full makeup, courtesy of Clown buddy, Todd. Believe it or not, he used a sock full of baby powder to set the grease paint in place.

Then we took the stage, spinning not one…

But two plates on my fingers — to the delight of the children in the audience.

But being a rookie clown isn’t all fun and games… click here to see my adventure, including the gag they pulled on me!

Dirty Jobs: Stuck In The Mud

Recently on the show I’ve been faced with a new wardrobe challenge, in the form of a segment called “Dirty Jobs”. Often I need to borrow the right equipment for the job. Like when I tagged along on with a landscaping crew, I borrowed a pair of hip-wader boots from my photographer. Little did I know how deeply I’d get stuck in the mud! When you watch the video, keep in mind that THE ONLY thing keeping me from slipping off those boots and making a run for it, is that it would have meant losing something that didn’t belong to me. Also keep in mind that this piece has been edited for television. I did my best not to panic, but at one point my temper did get the best of me. I’ll leave that part to your imagination!

Special thanks to Bob Evans and his crew from Property Creations Landscape Design.
