Emotionally Preparing for the Premiere


I spent the weekend mentally and emotionally preparing for the premiere. Over the past few months, an incredible team of a few hundred people, came together, with the goal of resurrecting one of television’s most beloved shows, @dealornodealcnbc ☺️🙌🏼

Our host @howiemandel is hands down, one of the most brilliant and genuine, on-camera personalities. Having the opportunity to work with him, has been nothing short of a blessing. Howie values people, family and heart. The Mandel’s made us feel like a part of the family, which was truly kind, especially since we were filming on-location aka away from home. ❤️🙌🏼

The cast, crew and production, have become like a family to me. We spent countless hours together, dreaming, laughing, crying, in joy and in pain. The girls have become sisters to me, as we share an undeniable bond. 🤟🏼

Months of hard work, immense teamwork and a lot of love have been poured into this incredible show that we hope you will love, just as much as we do. 🤩🙌🏼

THANK YOU for being on this journey with us!!!
