Success Emergency…The Big Idea

EDIT:  Because of the Wall Street fallout, I believe my show has been pushed back to TOMORROW NIGHT 10PM.  Will confirm as soon as I know for sure.


Today’s the day!  At 10am this morning, CNBC will be coming to pick me up for my TV taping of Donny Deutsch’s THE BIG IDEA!  We did a full day of filming at my home on Sunday, but now do the actual taping with Donny for tonight’s show.  Donny, along with Power Council Chip & Pepper Jeans (a multi-million dollar lifestyle denim brand sold in 42 countries!) and Brian Scudamore of 1-800-GOT-JUNK fame will help advise me on obstacles I face launching my Downtown Joey boys’ clothing line.

So be sure to tune in tonight (and record it!!!) – 10pm here in NYC on CNBC Time Warner Cable channel 15.  Check your local listings.  Hopefully, someone will YouTube it for me so my friends can see it worldwide!  Thanks to Daria of Boutique Cafe for the shout out!


My daughter has been hospital since the day before.  She needed a procedure and luckily, it was successful.  The doctors released her from the hospital at 11pm last night…whew!  But I will say, they all asked to be mentioned on the show…LOL!

Well, I had better get moving…only 3 1/2 hours till my 15 minutes of fame…and I have NO IDEA what I’m going to wear.  The producers said no white or black shirts…ummm, that would be my whole wardrobe!

Wish me luck!

    Anyways, I’m looking forward to the show(hopefully) tonight.

  18. OMG Lisa that was absolutely fantastic!!!

  20. I missed it too. Let us know if someone You tubed it. Hugs to all. Lynn

  21. I saw the program and Lisa, you were great! It’s nice to finally have a face to put with the voice on the phone and the blog. 🙂

    Your daughter is a lovely girl, so I”m also glad that the host of the show really put out a call for a new kidney for that beautiful sweetheart of yours.

    After this, I just know that you are going to be successful in finding that kidney and in launching that wonderful boy’s clothing line.

    Hugs to you and your family

  22. Lisa–I just watched the show! You are amazing! Your daughter and family will continue to be in my prayers!

  23. I just watched it through your link, and I too am so impressed with the way they concentrated on Marielle, but still gave you so many “hook ups”. I will be following along as usual to see this to the end. Many hugs, Mary
