I love this video of you & Jeannie. You couldn't of picked a better all around girl.I love watching Ellen.Jeannie & you work so perfect together. She is so spontaneous @ everything.
I have been blessed to have been to your show twice. I missed getting tickets this time but I am still trying for the December one cause only have one shot a year & I hope I get a shot @ the Christmas one, even though I'm afraid to fly now with what has gone on.
When we got tickets for the 9th season for the first time ever, Jeannie called to confirm it, she was so sweet & then I met Jeannie when we got to the show.( I have RSD ).
She was so adorable & sweet. I asked for a hug & she complied with a huge smile. When when we got tickets for the 1oth season,she said "hiPatti"& gave me a hug. I was surprised she remembered me. She made me feel like I was special & a friend.
You made a excellent decision hiring her!!
We need more people like you & her all over the good 'OL USA!!
