UPDATE 12/1/11: Food Network Star Chef Jeff Henderson has just been added to the Celebrity Twitter Party line-up.
Sometimes, part of the responsibilities of my job here with The Mouse involve working with celebrities. Believe me; it’s not as glamorous as you might think! I don’t have a million dollar, custom trailer or my own “Green Room.” They are famous. I am not. But what we do have in common is that we have incredible drive and stratospheric dreams. We are the typical “Type A Personalities.” When we chat, my questions usually land on the same subject. “How do you follow your dreams, reach your goals and keep your life in balance?” I think that’s a challenge a lot of people have, so I had an idea! What if instead of just lil’ ole’ me having conversations with the celebrities, next time, I invite you to join us!
This Twitter Party is the first in what I hope will be a series. The first “Celebrity Disney Dreaming Twitter Party” will feature “Family Feud” host and comedian Steve Harvey, Grammy-award winning gospel star Yolanda Adams, co-host of “106 & Park” Terrance J, noted educator Dr. Steve Perry and ESPN sportscaster Stephen A. Smith. On Dec. 3, they will be at Steve Harvey’s home picking the final 100 students who will attend next year’s Disney’s Dreamers Academy.
This is the time to ask your favorite celebrities how they reached their amazing levels of success and what they are dreaming about now. It’s something I always talk with them about and today I am officially inviting you to join one of our private chats! It’s a party that you can go to in your pajamas and slippers!
Celebrity Disney Dreaming Twitter Party
