Newsletter: Support Clean Comedy Movies! Red Carpet Wrap Up from Kerri

Hey guys,

I had so much fun on the red carpet doing interviews and meeting the stars of Moms' Night Out. Ron wore a "good shirt" and I wore false eyelashes! It all worked. I am honored to be a small part of the movement we've been talking about. We're bringing clean entertainment in all forms back to Hollywood. Mom's Night Out opened at over $4 million last weekend on only 1,000 screens. That is amazing. If you haven't seen it, please check it out. Below are my notes from the red carpet.

The film that Ron and I are in, American Jesus, is premiering this month in LA and NYC, and we're excited to be a part of that documentary as well.

Here is what I learned:
  1. Trace Adkins is about 9 ft tall and a surprisingly great actor and so gracious.
  2. Corbin Bernsen from L.A. Law has a new film out called "Christian Mingle." He came to support the film.
  3. Sarah Drew from Grey's Anatomy and Patricia Heaton are size 00--but so nice I can't be jealous.
  4. Jordan Sparks from American Idol is also tall and sweet.
  5. The whole cast of Grey's Anatomy is so nice and they were there to support Sarah Drew.
  6. Angela Johnson stole the whole movie and her husband is in it and equally hilarious! Check their scenes out...try not to laugh out loud! 
My career peaked when Sean Astin gave me the GOONIE OATH! I've now met Corey Feldman, Scott Baio and Kirk Cameron. If I meet Ricky Schroder I can die happy.

I walked to the car from the after party barefoot down Hollywood Blvd and I did not get tetanus! They've really cleaned it up. I just could NOT put on my heels for one more minute.

The movie Moms' Night Out was awesome and I'm so excited to be associated with it!
A good night was had by all. I stayed out past 12 am.

I need a "Mom's Night Out!" Check out my Red Carpet Wrap-Up video below.

Tales from a Hollywood God Girl - What is Joy?

As I was watching Oprah being interviewed in one of her more private moments, she was asked what she wanted out of life. She said,“I want more joy!”

 I find it funny hearing that because from the outside wouldn’t you think someone like Oprah Winfrey could have “joy” picked, purified and delivered to her door. And of course it would be organic! She’s so wealthy there is literally nothing she can’t buy. But she doesn’t have enough joy and neither do most of the Hollywood celebrities we spend our lives obsessing over. 

We’re all guilty to some degree of daydreaming of the lifestyles of the rich and famous.  I mean who wouldn’t want exotic vacations, lavish homes, and staff that cater to their every need? I always seem to think these people have some secret to a more contented life. They always look so happy and thin, don’t forget thin! And Angelina Jolie has one nanny for each child! What mom wouldn’t want that?

But at the end of the day these “celebs” lay their heads on their pillow and go to sleep in their beds just like we do. Their sheets may just have a higher thread count. Here’s the revelation, “They are no happier than we are!” I’ll take it a step further and say most of them are so caught up in “the Hollywood machine” their anxiety is so high they’re actually unhappy. Why am I bursting your bubble about your favorite stars? Because I think we all need to make some changes in the way we look at pop culture. Maybe we have a part to play?

If each one of us took a step back and stopped empowering the media I think we’d be better off. Do we really need to encourage  programs called “Britney Spears-What went wrong?” I know it’s tempting.  I watch those shows like a train wreck…sometimes I just can’t look away. But I’m trying to make myself a promise not to spend my time listening to speculations about celebs trying to figure out “who’s the hottest” in 2014.  I really don’t get more joy by living vicariously through perfect good looking strangers. I just think I’ve been brainwashed by too much entertainment news that I need to know what’s going on Justin Timberlake’s love life.  

I think it all boils down to the little poem I learned in 1st grade: Joy = Jesus, then Others, Then Myself. (I don’t think it means reading all the tabloids in the supermarket line or at the hair salon).

We as Christians can be known sometimes to be the first to judge a sinner for their misconduct and trash talk celebrities like we know them and their hearts (as if we’re so perfect). Luke 15:7 states, “I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.” So instead of joining the ranks of the celebrity worshipers or the people trying to play God, lets remember these “stars” are people who need some serious Jesus and our prayers can make a difference! When I go onto a set or have a big meeting in Hollywood, I try to pray for the person I’m meeting with and ask God how I can be a witness of God’s love and not God’s condemnation.  That film exec might have a child that needs healing or a personal situation that God will give me just the right words for. Maybe I’m the only Christian they’ll ever open up to? I know we’re called to be in this world, but we don’t have to do things “the world’s way.” I know it’s hard!

I’ve been convicted lately because I’ve been teaching my 6 year old daughter the word “inappropriate” when it comes to things she’s looking at. I’m a drill sergeant when it comes to what I allow her to see. We were doing pedicures together the other day and I was reading People magazine. Lucy kept grabbing every page saying, “MOMMY this is inappropriate! Mommy this lady is inappropriate, look at her dress.” She finally grabbed the magazine and threw it down. She said, “Mommy I think you better put that whole magazine away! They need some Jesus!” Well, after I got over my embarrassment of being called out by a 6 year old, the thought that I’m raising up the next generation of Godly women brought me something great -- JOY!  I just have to go throw away all my pop culture magazines before Lucy finds them. No wonder my mom read "Guideposts!"

The Love of My Mother

My mom is from the south and had one dream — grandkids. I was in ministry as a single woman for many years. I called it, “Bitter Party of 1!” My mother was so obsessed with me getting married they'd have prayer circles at her church to cast out the demons that were keeping me single! I told her the demons were called "good taste and standards!"
Anyway, she was very pro-active when it came to finding me a man, especially as the years went on and I reached the ripe old age of 26. I was living in California and one morning I woke in terrible pain. I thought for sure I had food poisoning from the sushi I had bought on sale at the grocery store. I ended up in the ER, and having emergency appendix surgery. I was on pain meds and really dazed and confused. I remember while I was lying on the hospital gurney hearing a voice of comfort. It was my mother Barb. She was leaning over the IV in my arm saying, ”Kerri, sweetie, here put some lipstick on. I think the Dr. is single! I'll be right back. I noticed he did not have on a ring! I'm gonna go get him!” Here I was laying there in my Precious Moments night gown my grandmother had given me for my birthday, looking mildly like a homeless person, and she was trying to apply Maybelline Cotton Candy #4 Lipstick on my face and freshen me up to meet my future Dr husband. This woman had no boundaries. I could barely understand her, but I pretended to still be sleeping. About 40 seconds later my mom runs back in the room and she has a male nurse with her. He looked like he'd been taken captive by a pirate (my mother). She was holding him by the arm and brought him right over to me. "Kerri, honey this is LJ. We just met in the hallway. He works here and he's very nice." He looked to be in pain, more pain than me because I was on drugs. She looked at him and his name tag and said plainly, “So what does LJ stand for? Could it be LORD JESUS?" This is my daughter Kerri. She's a comedian. She's been on The Tonight Show. Do you like Comedy LJ? Well, say something Kerri!" And yes ladies and gentlemen that actually happened. No, LJ did not call me and the “single  Dr.”  somehow disappeared also. You wonder why I became a professional comedian? It's for moments like these because with a mother like mine, it's cheaper than therapy!
Mom finally got her grandkids after I told her I was getting married to a Korean Irish Comedian with no health insurance. We certainly enjoyed her calls to us on our honeymoon saying to my husband “So when am I gonna get some grandkids?" Ron replied, “Well Barbara as soon as you stop callin!"
Happy Mother s Day to a mother who makes life interesting! I love you Barb!
