I'm Married To A... Quadriplegic

Michael and I haven't been able to talk about it, but we are very excited to share with all of you that we are going to be featured in an episode of VH1's "I'm Married To A..."

The season premieres tonight at 10pm ET.
We don't know yet the specific date of our episode, but when I get that information, you can be sure I will pass it along to you!

This opportunity kind of came out of nowhere. They found us through our blog, and all of a sudden, we were doing a casting video.
I was just sure that we were going to be too old, I was going to be too fat, and Brokaw was going to be too crazy for us to get picked.

But we were picked!

So - remember when we moved, and you all thought I was so awesome for getting our place put together in like a week? Yeah. Nothing like having a reality TV crew arriving to make you get your act together!


I'm a TV producer for a living. Y'all know this, right?
Well.
Let me tell you.
Being on the other side of the camera, being produced myself, was such an interesting experience.
I can't say enough nice things about the crew.
They were so great.
Brokaw was seriously sad when the one crew member who constantly took him on walks was gone.

Y'all know we are pretty conservative people. I know a lot of y'all are too.
So, I want to be real with you about this show. There are some couples and story lines in the show that are out there.

I told the producers that we are going to be so boring!! Haha.

But - know this.
We decided it was something we wanted to be a part of, to share with the world that yes, while our circumstances may be different than the norm - we are so much like everyone else, and we face challenges like everyone else, and at the root of it all, we're just a couple in love.

I hope you will check the show out!
We totally upgraded our cable package so we don't miss it.

Here are a couple of trailers for the show.
This one is an extended set of clips from the season. We are at about 1:25 on this one.


This one is a "First Look." We are at about : 20 in on this one.

I'm totally glad you confirmed to me I'm not crazy by posting this . I was getting ready one morning and saw a commercial when I hear your voice look up and what in the world it is Dana ! It was so fast and so early I wasn't sure if I imagined it. LOL!!! Congrats ! So excited to see your episode. What a wonderful opportunity.

I just watched the episode and working in Occupational Therapy, you both are an inspiration for a lot of patients out there. I work with many who are concerned about their personal lives after a spinal cord injury or accident. I will share your story to my colleagues and patients. By the way, Dana you do exactly what I do for a living and watching you getting Michael out of bed was very impressive. Keep inspiring!
