I found this article on AOL, and I have to hand it to the bigshots at the Estrella Network, which I have never seen because it's not on our cable. But someone there is clearly thinking beyond the norm. Here's what I read:
Singer Jenni Rivera's talk-show debut a no-go
Although she announced her excitement over the Oct. 19 premiere of her upcoming show, her excitement palatable with fans as she expressed that she was happy to be more in touch with them, plans quickly took a nosedive for Jenni Rivera.
Through her Twitter page, Rivera announced that her show, simply titled 'Jenni' and scheduled to air on Estrella TV, is officially a no-go.
"My esteemed fans and followers...I'm advising you that as of yesterday, I've officially retired from the TV show with Estrella TV. I made the decision after things didn't work out the way we had planned. Maybe in the future, I might offer you the TV show I very much wanted to present to you. My radio project continues to move forward. Thanks!"
It looks as though for now, Jenni Rivera is putting this project, which she plans to revisit again in the future, on hold to continue focusing on singing, her entrepreneurial endeavors, and her radio hosting duties with her show 'Contacto Directo' (Direct Contact), which launched just a few days ago.
How many people can say that they are "retiring" before even going to work? What a great way to say, in other words, "This idea just didn't work out so well so I'm going to do something else." I'm sorry for Ms Rivera. I must confess I have never heard of her before, but I have a feeling we will hear more from her in the future.
Meanwhile, as long as people are announcing things, I guess the time has come for me to announce publicly that I will also be retiring from the following jobs I never started doing:
- President of the United States (will consider a run for the White House in 2016)
- Manager of the Orioles
- country singer known for such hits as "Bucket Full O' Chicken (and a Belly Full of You)"
- Apple Products idea man, responsible for such innovations as the "iEye," which is an web-based personal sized portable magnifying glass, and the "iEye iEye iEye," which is a small video player showing endless "I Love Lucy" reruns
- South American military strongman
- Qaddhafi bodyguard
- chauffeur to Ms Spears
