Talk shows sure know how to treat their guests! Upon arriving at the Paramount lot, I was led to the "green room," where guests waiting to go on the show sipped tea, coffee or even booze (if they were desperate enough). I opted for plain water, my mouth was parched. While waiting, a very frazzled producer stopped by and quickly requested that I make a short ten-second statement on tape to be played later. I said something like, "Mrs. Jordan, you made a very big difference in my life, and I am here to thank you for it." The producer snatched the tape and disappeared like there was no tomorrow. I was alone again. Looking around the room, I was mesmerized by all the photos on the red walls (why do they call it the green room??) of famous people who were previously on the Leeza show. I was jostled out of my reverie when the door suddenly burst open and the same producer was back.
She was so stubborn that the "Leeza" producers were forced to enlist the help of her husband, her daughter, and even the school principal to convince her to appear on the show. Thanks to their herculean efforts, they were finally able to cajole her into taking a few days off without revealing the real reasons for going. So far, so good. Less than a week later, she and her daughter boarded a flight to Hollywood, while I took a different plane out of JFK, several hundred miles away. When I arrived at the hotel in California, I was shocked to learn that they were staying in a room only one floor above me! The taping wasnt scheduled until the next morning, and while I wanted to avoid bumping into them, I didnt exactly relish the idea of being cooped up in my room and ordering room service. So I came up with a plan.
