Just before the show aired last Thursday,i wrote about it in Lights.Camera.Action
The irony only hit me a few seconds later…..being a stay -at -home parent had got me on national Tv
Who would have thought…?
Victoria Rubadiri is as gracious in real life as she is on TV and we had a blast on the set at the design studio of Mambo Interiors.
Being very interested in issues around women and parenting ,i asked Victoria a few questions on what had inspired Victoria’s Lounge, as well as how the reception for the show has been so far.
On the concept for the show , Victoria says she wanted to create a platform from where people could have candid conversations about their experiences,you know kind of like the ones we have with close family and friends around our kitchen tables or living rooms and in doing so inspire and encourage someone .
Being a news anchor heavily influenced her decision to have a show around social issues as she wanted to interrogate issues further than the time availed during a news bulletin would allow.As a result Victoria has seen how willing people are to talk about issues affecting them ,offer to help others as well as be influenced to seek help.
Through the choice of topics and guests she brings on the show ,she wants to encourage people to talk and eventually move to seeking solutions to the issues that they are facing .And that people are able to draw encouragement and hope from her guests experiences,no matter what it is they are facing in life
As for her guests she wants them to have the gratification of knowing that by sharing their experience they helped to inspire and encourage someone.
So far, the reception for the show has been overwhelming and a complete surprise was the large percentage of men who watch it ,such that they are thinking of future topics for the show that would include their male viewers.
We wish Victoria and her great team all the best in everything they do.
Make sure to catch the show every Thursday on NTV AT 7:30 pm and while at it become a fan of Victoria’s Lounge and make sure not to miss out on inspiration.
