Elaine Swann on Kicking and Screaming: Premieres March 9

Watch me brave the jungle on FOX's new reality competition series, Kicking and Screaming. This by far was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life. I left my supportive husband and traveled to Fiji to take on one of the biggest challenges of my life (so far). After 11 years of being a STALKER to TV and news producers, hundreds of appearances on talk & news shows, developing a NATIONALLY recognizable brand and sacrificing too many things to mention here, it FINALLY happened.  Last year, out of the blue, I received a phone call (yes, an actual phone call) from producers asking me to participate in a new reality show for FOX. I said YES!

So, mark your calendars for March 9th at 9pm to see me in the FOX’s newest competition series Kicking and Screaming (Take a look at the clip below). Why that name? Because I was flown to Fiji, paired up with expert survivalist, left in the JUNGLE and we had to compete in a series of challenges to try to win $500,000! It was HARD and yes, I wanted to kick and scream at a lot of people.   In my personal and professional life, I have WORKED very hard, remained COMMITTED and ENDURED some difficult challenges. Seems as though all of that got me prepared for this show (LOL).

Check back often because we're going to share information on a viewing party for the premier and virtual viewing parties you can have in your hometown. Tune in Thursday March 9 at 9pm for the premiere of the show. Cheer me on and see how the Etiquette Lady did in the jungle (I asked God to enlarge my territory but I didn’t expect it to stretch as far as Fiji)!

Almost Christmas: Are you Ready to Deal with your Family?

Since it's almost Christmas we should really begin to think about how we are going to deal with the crazy that comes with our family. No matter how dignified you are we all have at least ONE relative who can get a little out of hand.  I recently stopped by CW6 in San Diego to promote the new film Almost Christmas. It's in theaters tomorrow  starring Danny Glover, Gabrielle Union, Monique and many more. This movie has got the total combination of family, fun and lot of crazy. I also shared my tips on how to deal with the crazy with a bit of grace and style. Many of the tips came straight from my book Let Crazy Be Crazy. Take a look at the clip from my interview below and then go see the hilarious movie Almost Christmas with your family.
