I decided to leave the house, alone. but after I got there I called home to say I'm coming back quick to get Max. It was cool in there! I felt bad, and knew Max would really like it. But when I called I heard Mimi screaming in the background for me instead. I ran home and just got the whole family and brought them with me for the 9pm showing.
I like this show a lot. It must have been so much work before filming finding celebrities with such interesting family histories...without the celebrity knowing how interesting their family background might actually be. They had to research each candidate thoroughly just to make sure they WERE interesting. they really found some wonderful stories in the process.
Zooey Deschanel had a family history in the Lancaster area. They talked about Zooey being brought in at 7am, and how all was kept very hush hush. The historian TLC worked with from Christiana had a funny tale. He noted that he was quite leary when they first called him (after the Amish Mafia situation)...but after much convincing- meeting him at his house, it all worked out fine in the end. As we were all waiting for the show to begin, the Amish Mafia trailer popped on the screen behind him, and the audience all had a good laugh.
