My First Celebrity Interview!


Phaedra is a 27 year old woman trapped in a seven-year-old’s body.  She is far more mature than Rob and I.  When we make stupid jokes, she usually just stares at us for a few seconds, then continues with her conversation.  She doesn’t have time for our bullshit.  She is a diva.

One night, after the kids went to bed, Rob and I started trading funny kid stories back and forth.  We each had funny “I’m so done with you two idiots” stories from Phaedra that day.  Rob suggested that it would be funny to interview Phaedra using the Pivot Questionnaire made famous by “Inside the Actor’s Studio”.  Since she is a celebrity (in her own mind), I agreed.

Holy shit you guys, this kid is hilarious.  A few things I want to point out:

1.  She dressed herself.  The only guidance I gave was, “get dressed in something nice”.

2.  She is wearing the highly illegal colored lip gloss that my mom bought he when I was out of town and they were staying with he.

3.  My absolute favorite thing about this video is that she doesn’t look at me to answer the questions.  She looks straight ahead almost the entire time.  I feel like one of those junket reporters on Extra”!

4.  If she ever loses her baby lisp, I’ll just die.

When I turned off the camera, she said, “Mom, I wanted to say ‘bitch’ for my favorite bad word, but I was too embarrassed.”   I guarantee you that Bella will not have a hard time answering that question.

    Love the interview! One of my twins used to have an awesome lisp–my daughter was talking about what kind of birthday cake she wanted (a puppy one), and I was trying to determine if she wanted a cake shaped like a puppy, or with puppies on it. My son was listening, and he said, “No, you want a cake with puppies on it, that Mommy will make out of FWOSTING!” He doesn’t say fwosting anymore. And my daughter, who used to call biscuits “bistiks” now knows the correct word. It’s all very sad.

  7. OMG, what a total Diva in those pink glasses! And now I totally know why you want to buy up all those pink spoons at Target. I want to hang out with her sometime. (And my six-year-old has a lisp, too and mispronounces certain words. He’s in speech therapy and I’m like, NOOOO, it’s so cute!)
