BuzzWorthy Radio

Last night on 11/29/07, my co-host Matthew Preston and I had the chance to interview Catherine Hickland. She plays Lindsay Rappaport on the ABC soap opera, "One Life to Live." It was one of the most entertaining interviews I was ever a part of. She is truly a classy, sweet, wonderful person. She had so much insight for the both of us. As two young adults, she told us that we should follow our dreams, have that determination and not to give it up.

She spoke the truth that night, and it was fantastic.

We talked about her time on "Loving" and "The City." I was surprised to hear that "Loving" was an unfriendly place to work. Especially about how people did not treat Morgan Fairchild well. THAT stunned me heavily. I was wondering why people want to disrespect a legend as Morgan?


It was great how honest she was about the shows she has done, the show she is doing now....Cat gave us wonderful insight about young inspiring actors. Determination. Promote yourself and get your face and name out there. Don't be afraid to knock on those doors, and if you get rejected by that door, don't be discouraged. Keep on knocking at other doors as well as possibly going back to where you first started. I LOVE that. Word of mouth is definitely key. She emphasized on how it is like working with the younger set on the serial. She finds them to be a joy to work with, but you can spot the ones who are gonna succeed a mile away, and the one who are nothing but immature primadonnas. Seeing it as only a paycheck compared to those who love what they do in the business is going to take you farther than anticipated.


I found it funny when we talked about Lindsay being a "couga"...oh my goodness, did I spell that right? LOL, but her story with John-Paul Lavoisier was entertaining at best, and she was so worried for him and herself because she didn't want to traumatize the boy. But, she spoke very highly of him as an actor and as a person. He grew into the role very well and has come a long way since his start in 2003.  She spoke very highly of her co-stars: Robin Strasser, Hillary B. Smith, JPL, and Michael E. Knight. She was just a wonderful person and it was amazing to do this show featuring her.


The question that I was glad that we could ask her before the show ended was how she felt about the writer's strike. She stated how sad she was that this is occurring and she has friends who are writers and they cannot get any income at the moment. She feared that this may not even end until May, if things do not get settled. That worries me a lot after she said that, because television cannot afford to be losing anything right now. Especially in the daytime arena. We all feel it is on a decline, and with this kind of beating, it definitely is not helping matters and cannot afford to lose anymore viewers than it already has. So, we all hope that this does end quickly and hopefully get back to what we love about our shows.


CAT Cosmetics...I still find it cute it is called that....starting a business is hard work, and she said had she known it was going to be that difficult, she never would done it. However, she loves fashion, she loves women, and they should feel confident about themselves and in their appearance. This is something that she can give back to the ladies. Having that fire and determination, again...determination, keeps her going.

Make sure to check out her website for CAT Cosmetics at http://www.catcosmetics.com

And so what...those 3 words she lives by, and I love those three words! And now what means you have only have one life, and you should pursue your dreams and goals while you can. And once you start accomplishing what you want....and so what? Those words come after "I LOVE YOU"..."AND SO WHAT?" Beautiful testament to live by.

I loved doing this interview, and we would love to have her back, especially when she starts her book tour come October 2008.

She was a joy to talk with, and there are more to come! So stay tuned, fellow listeners! BuzzWorthy Radio is up and running!
