This past Thursday night, hosts Matthew Preston and NaVell J. Lee had the chance to sit down and interview Suzanne Whang. Whang is best known for hosting HGTV's "House Hunters," and now the spinoff series, "House Hunters International." She also recurs as the politically incorrect Polly on NBC's hit show, "Las Vegas."


Whang, I have to say, is funny beyond belief. Whatever you do, do NOT tell her she looks like Yoko Ono. It is bad enough that this woman broke up the Beatles, but it's another to think that is actually a compliment on her behalf. Oh, and when guys tell her that they love Asian girls because of that steroetype...that's not a compliment, either. If anything...that will get a slap across the face. I loved what she had to say about people she has come across in the US where they would walk up to her, and basically speak very loudly....as if she can't understand the words that are coming out of her mouth LOL. My favorite quote of the evening: "Hey, you speak English very well. Thanks, can you speak idiot?"


Suzanne definitely let it rip. It was a no holds barred conversation. We then discussed her stand up comedy routine of "Sung Hee Park." I watched the DVD of this performance, which I believe it is also on YouTube for you fans out there, it is an absolute scream. Seriously, if you are not easily offended, you have to watch this. Everything that many people see and hear in regards to racial stereotypes is heard in the routine. And, if you cannot make fun of yourself, who can you make fun of? She definitely pushes the envelope, which you would be able to tell from her hosting duties on House Hunters. So innocent, and so pure....NOT! LOL...and then there is Polly....how can you not enjoy this character? Suzanne expressed how she loves this role because you have this character who can say such expressions that you cannot believe NBC gets away with. She even mentioned that there are times where she does ad-libbing, so some of the Polly scenes/lines, do not fully follow the script, which I just love. It just amazes me how Sung Hee Park may not have existed if Suzanne didn't just...go for it. She was so against doing a routine about racial slurs, the thing she could not stand for....but she went for it, and it paid off. She went out to Chinatown, bought a kimono, the whole thing, and she aced it. That just proves to one that you should follow your instincts, and go big.


Whang also mentioned near the end of the show about the DVD entitled, "The Secret." If you want to talk about going for the gold, try this on for size....Suzanne felt that this book was the greatest book she has ever read, that she had to get it featured on Oprah. That's right, Oprah! She called up Harpo studios, and put in her idea, and sent them a package in regards to The Secret. Two months down the line, she heard back from them again, saying Oprah loved the book! How about that? She took a flight to Africa to promote this book/DVD, and I will tell you this....do not read Chicken Soup on the plane...you don't want to have the other passengers crying along with you. LOL. She ran into this gentleman, out of the clear blue sky, sat down with Suzanne, and asked if she had heard of The Secret. It was then she found out that Oprah was doing a special show for the book.DVD in just a few days. So, she made sure she was not going to miss out on this event. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and she went for it. And she got on the show. That was an incredible feeling for her, and it just proves again you won't know what could happen unless you try.


Suzanne Whang is a very inspirational person. A public speaker, studying to be a minister, she definitely has the courage to get up and go onto the next challenge. She doesn't hold back, and takes everything head on, which is what I love about people. Another amazing guest, and another amazing show! There's more to come. Be here next week when BWR sits down with Nazanin Boniadi from "General Hospital," and Dr. Blogstein, from BlogTalkRadio's own, "Radio Happy Hour."
