Are You in Southern CA

I usually don't post this type of stuff but thought I'd try it this one time. I received this e-mail today asking for help.

I have not researched this and am not vouching for the validity I am just putting this up in case someone is in a position that wants or needs this help.

My name is Julia Jenkins and I’m a Casting Producer for WEtv and Ish Entertainment. I’m working on a compelling new series based in Southern California that will help families who are struggling with difficult issues, such as behavioral issues, addiction, control issues, eating disorders or obesity. I was wondering if you would be interested in posting my message on your blog.

As you know, these issues not only affect the individual, but the whole family as well - and our Licensed Family Therapist (Tara Fields, as seen on Oprah, Dr. Phil and CNN) wants to help.

We know that especially in these tough economic times, a lot of families are struggling but don’t know where to turn…and this heart-warming show will be devoted to lending a helping hand to the families who need it.

Please see our casting notice below. If you’re interested in learning more or have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

Thanks for your time.


Is your family in crises struggling with issues that need to be addressed? Is someone in your home dealing with an addiction and you don’t know where to turn?

WEtv’s new show can help!!!

Tara Fields has made a difference on “Hoarders” and “Intervention” but now YOUR FAMILY can have the chance to work one-on-one with her! This exciting new one-hour unscripted TV series will delve into the lives of families in crisis. Tara will work with families to uncover what their real issues are and then help them to overcome them, making the families whole again.

If you - or anyone you know - are in need of help and live in the Los Angeles area, contact us today! Families who appear on the show will receive free family therapy and a financial honorarium as a thank-you for their time commitment.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Email for more info.

*Please be sure to include a description of your family and the issues you’re dealing with, along with a recent photo.

I'm in So. Cal. but have already turned down Ken Seeley's offer to be on his new show, so I am not even going to contemplate the TV thing again. It sounds like a really good opportunity for someone who can't afford help and doesn't mind being in the spotlight.

As much as we need it....the thought of exposing our family is very scary. Does anyone know the success rate on something like this? Does it work at all?

I have no idea the success. I suppose you could research it and find some info. The one thing to always keep in mind. With reality shows the first priority is the show, despite what they say on TV.

I just thought if this is something that someone feels might help I posted the info.

Our son and family were on one of the first "Intervention" shows. It was a harrowing experience. They did send him to a pricey rehab and when he got kicked out they bought him an airline ticket to wherever he wanted to go.

It was the ultimate invasion of our privacy, it was manipulated (of course, it's TV) so we knew all that going into it. We did it because we could never afford the type of rehab they were able to offer him. He blew it. But it was one step in his recovery. He's been clean now for 3 years. After the Intervention he went into rehab two or three more times before his "aha" moment.

We have never seen the show. I couldn't watch it. I didn't want to see him shooting up.

Bottom line: I was glad we did it.
