Celebs, Heebie Jeebies and a man of Joshua Tree

January 7, 2019

Today was the FIRST show of 2019! The show was on vacation just before Christmas all the way into the first week of January, but boy was it worth the wait. Mercedes and JC got to see each other a few times over vaca for not only their TV show Las Vegas Now (on Channel 8 from 4-5pm-- plug plug plug) but for Lady Gaga's ENIGMA residency at Park Theater. We talked about lots of stuff that happened while they were gone, having the heebie jeebies and turning new leaves.

Mercedes and JC were invited to the media night/opening night of Lady Gaga's ENIGMA residency at Park Theater in late December. It was a STAR STUDDED EVENT, DARLING. Not only were you two lovely morning show hosts in attendance, but Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, Adam Lambert and the QUEEN Celine Dion. Well... A queen. (JC would save his last breath on earth to say Cyndi Lauper is queen.) Mercedes was most excited to have met Christina Tosi, a chef and founder of Milk Bar. But that's not the only person she was excited to meet. Before she shared her awesome story... JC thought he'd TAKEN the cake. He said he peed next to greatness... well, almost. Dave Grohl from Nirvana and the Foo Fighters! He just happened to be in the bathroom at the same time. Well La Dee Da... Lo & Behold [SIDE BAR-- I thought it was low and behold this hold time... It's LO not low], Mercedes one upped him. Her and her husband Matt were sitting NEXT to him! Mercedes saw there were a couple seats next to them that were open. She thought they'd be able to move over and get some space, but DAVE GROHL and his buddy scooted in right next to them. Dave accidentally put his sleeve in Matt's soda. But it was all good. It's Dave Grohl. He graciously took pictures and a video with Mercedes afterword. That's not the only thing celebrity wise that happened with Mercedes. Our local boy MLB SUPERSTAR Bryce Harper liked a picture of hers on Instagram... and he doesn't follow her. BIG DEAL! 

For Christmas Mercedes bought JC a nice camo denim jacket from the Justin Timberlake collection. Now he really thinks he's a man of the woods! He even said in an off the air conversation that he went from a 3 to a 4 on his facial hair (basically it's longer and scruffier.) All jokes aside, JC really likes being outdoorsy. He went to Joshua Tree over the break with his wife and the doggies. He said he was almost scammed by some hikers! These two randos were making small talk while he was at a cafe and they started asking way too many questions. Then a local old-timer, as JC said, told him to be careful because hikers like that usually ask questions to find out where people are staying and what their schedule will be so they can break in and steal their stuff. (JC was staying in an Airbnb.) He was so paranoid for the rest of the trip but thank goodness nothing happened. It freaked him out. 

Speaking of freaking out, Mercedes says she's gotten the show heebie jeebies. We make a lot of terms up on this show so allow me to elaborate, the best I can? Mercedes watched this show called "YOU" on Netflix over vacation and she said it was very interesting and disturbing at the same time. It's apparently a show based on a book and it will make you paranoid about being watched or stalked... AND SHE COULDN'T STOP WATCHING. She said it freaked her out and she now needs a new show to watch on Netflix. She said she, like 5 billion of the 7 billion people on earth, watched Bird box already (two times! the second time was with her daughter-- aw!) So she needs something ELSE else. Send her a tweet @mercedeslv and suggest a show! 

Listen to the show Monday through Friday from 5:30-10:00am or download the podcast on iTunes, Google Play or the radio.com app!
