So, when I pitched my new Podcast show to AfterBuzzTV, I didn’t fully grasp how empowering it could be to really get something off the ground. It wasn’t easy managing other personalities, producing content and being myself… truth is: I lost myself for a minute and it showed. Forced. Yes, I was “on” but after the storm comes a rainbow. It was my idea to begin with, so to be the only man standing is… FUCKING FANTASTIC. I’m excited to produce this podcast, lead it, and be the best. Its my show and its business, and It’s show business, kids. So, no hard feelings. Let’s do this. It’s Bravo Betch with HollywoodLian is available on APPLE Podcasts. Broadcasted LIVE on YouTube. Produced by Me & AfterBuzzTV.
The day I’ve been waiting for is finally here: the Debut of Episode 2, Going to Town, for Camping, the HBO show I have a Co-Star on! I admit, I saw the episode on the big screen already at Paramount, so I knew what to expect. Obviously, not everything made it, some was left on the cutting room floor. Editing can go any way. I’m just grateful to be featured on such a high platform with incredible talent. We did so much improv, not much made the actual episode, but everyone is enjoying my Cameo on this unorthodox Comedy. My favorite part? My name on the credits at the end. Now that gave me FEELS. David Tennant & Jennifer Garner are everything on & off screen. Happy October!
The Lowdown with Lian became practice for a new destiny… an introduction to something I’ve always had a passion for, Hosting my own show on Pop Culture. The Lowdown was short, never went viral, but it was enough to get some attention. I conquered DragCon and also landed myself an Entertainment Host position at AfterBuzz TV! Full panel after show on Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Orange County. Hosting is a passion of mine because it allows me to showcase myself and the passion that I have for Pop Culture. I’m super excited about this new creative endeavor and I couldn’t be happier. Make sure to Follow me on the social media platforms for all clips, photos, and live video stories. @HOLLYWOOODLIAN
SO, I jumped… I put myself out there. Made a YouTube video announcing I would be doing a weekly episode recap show called THE LOWDOWN WITH LIAN. Received complimentary feedback by very unexpected but professional entertainment colleagues. So, it’s exciting in general. Excited to throw myself in the line of fire, excited to showcase myself, and excited to show that after being in a “dry spell” for a good minute, anyone can brush themselves off and TRY AGAIN.
Yes, I’m a now a Blonde. (for now) I’m also a new puppy father. Her name is Fiona and she is a Mini Schnauzer- the last couple months raising her have been amazing. She is now 4 months! Thinking of creating a dog show/web thing featuring both of us. I mean, look at us! Either way, this blonde ambition has some new looks to show off around the town. Thinking of doing some head-shots with this blonde! I mean, I gotta do something already. Tell me what you think!
I will be launching a new site with new photos at the beginning of 2016!!! Spending a week down in the Big Easy made me realize how much i wanna shoot something amazing down there. So many great things have been filmed there in the last couple years. (American Horror Story:Freak Show, Jurassic world) I will be expanding and reaching out to agents & managers in the South. New Orleans, primarily because of the amount of filming that happens in that area. Atlanta is another place that I am thinking about reaching as well. I just want to shoot, just wanna be in great things. Do it for the love because it doesn’t get easier. It’s getting harder.
Well, I haven’t actually hovered over to an audition on my hoverboard…. it would probably be the most annoying thing a casting director has ever seen. But I do have one, mostly because of the connections in this huge spiderweb of relationships we call LA. They are quickly becoming popular, Vanity Fair called them the “new Hummer” & they have been in the media thanks to celebs like Wiz Khalifa who got tackled to the floor at LAX for refusing to get off his hoverboard. The kids are envious on Vine; making them very high in demand. Be prepared to spend a pretty penny! (Retail $950.00) Or just be a D list celeb/viner/actor who has done 1 co-star and they might send you one to promote on your Instagram. I will be adding this new talent of mine to my special skills section on my resume. Considering even starting a new project with it….
“HEY YOU’RE ON TV!!!” – As Actors, we love these kind of messages, only because it’s very rewarding to see your work come to LIFE. It was great to see myself debut last night on SPIKE TV with playboy bunny ears.
Back again collaborating with the Bond Twins, Lauren & Jennifer! I always have such a great time filming with them, it’s easy when you’re having a great time. First time working with Director/Actor Geo Santini, who happen to be my co-star in our scenes. Geo is hilarious on camera and off; taking risks and putting himself out there. The experience shooting at YouTube Space Headquarters LA center was not just a pleasure, but it was overwhelmingly impressive. Great day on set.
For the world, we lost a brilliant Actor who entertained us. For the industry… we lost a peer. Robin Williams was one of my comedic heroes. His performances were inspiring. His characters are some of Hollywood’s most memorable. Sometimes, inspiration is needed, especially when the business gets to you. We don’t know what Robin was going through, but we lost him. It’s eye-opening… it is just a reminder that it’s not easy. Show business life can be filled with incredible highs and devastating lows. It can beat you down. Let’s hang in there and take care of each other. We could use a little for compassion in our daily lives. We love you. Robin. See you on the other side.
Look, I love the show and I hope Andy will have me one day me on WWHL ! Where I will make him laugh, tell him my love for the housewives, and ask him for my my own personal reality show on BRAVO. For now, I can run into Kyle Richards, eat tacos with her, and talk to her about my teeth. Which she did compliment. When you live in LA, when you are an Actor, you get invited to things.. so you meet people. Kyle was lovely and very down to earth. I’m sure I’ll see her again.
