Trading Places

I'm sure I am going to date myself with this, but remember that movie that came out in the early eighties "Trading Places" with Eddie Murphy and Dan Aykroyd? Just so we're clear, I was a very young child when it came out (well very young might be stretching it, but I was definitely young). Anyway, the story line was along the lines of two people from very different backgrounds having to trade lives. The rich successful man became broke while the jobless & homeless (?) man got to live the rich life.

My point to all this was not to reminisce about movies from the eighties (although that would probably be a great post...Back to the Future anyone... Roads? Where we’re going we won’t need roads...). Oh my, I am having a difficult time staying focused. For me to say “but I digress” right now would be like me saying Heidi Montag has had a little work done.

Let’s try this again. Has anyone ever considered who they might want to trade places with, assuming it was necessary for some reason? No, well then play my game with me...I’ll go first!

1. Kelly Ripa

Here are all the reasons why being Kelly Ripa wouldn’t be so bad...
-She lives in NYC. How fun would that be? I think lots of fun!
-She works for like an hour a day, and makes a ton of money.
-Part of her job description involves getting her hair and make-up
done professionally every moring. I would get on board for that
reason alone :)

2. Kristin Chenoweth

If I was this cute and could sing this good nothing would stop me! Also, I mentioned many posts ago that one of my dream jobs would be being on Broadway, and that’s where she is, literally, right now she’s doing a show on Broadway.

3. Julianne Hough

Just say Dancing with the Stars and I’m on board. I would trade places with one of the men to be on that show if necessary. Seriously, I love it. I’ve considered trying to sell out my family by pitching a reality show to TLC just so I could then move on to Dancing with the Stars. If only Chris hadn’t had that vasectomy & we could have like 10 or 12 more kids...oops, I’m sorry. Was that too much information?

4. Diane Sawyer

This woman is smart, sophisticated, successful, beautiful. Why wouldn’t you want to be Diane Sawyer?

Ok. Now it's your turn. Who would you trade places with?


  1. Oooh...good question and good answers. :) You are so so funny!! I'm still thinking, may have to get back to you on this one. Why am i having such a hard time thinking of one stinkin' person???

  2. I would trade places with anyone who had good legs and a perky rack. Hey, you mentioned Chris's vasectomy, so I can say "rack". Kelly Ripa is awesome, by the way :)

  3. how about Natalie Morales, Erin Andrews (minus the stalkers), or Ellen (minus being gay). :)

  4. I LOVE Kelly Ripa, And if I could get my hair and makeup done every day, I think I'd be a little less stressed! :)
