TLC's Homemade Millionaire Episode 4

Based on conversations here and over at Tracy's ProductX Blog, this Friday's Homemade Millionaire hosted by the Super Fantasticalicious Kelly Ripa is sure to be an exciting one!

Don't shoot me, but I will not be watching or tweeting this Friday. I've got it set to record on my DVR and will not check anything online until after I watch. I've got a hot date with my husband and we don't get out much. So, while I am very excited to go out and hear some live music in a very cozy setting (which will also include good food, wine and making conversation with grown-ups), I am very sorry to be missing the show, and will be with you in spirit!

If what I have been reading about is true, I think we might be in for some "real" reality Friday night. It looks like all three of these brainy broads with big ideas (sorry, I couldn't help myself) have very appealing products.

Sarah Haviland and her Think Brand Products look very interesting. Hmmm, the sleuth in me wonders why her website is "under construction" with "more info coming soon"...a clue? I guess we will have to wait and see!

I love, love, LUV Haris Lender and her Luv-A-Cuva - so simple, so ingenious! (big sigh...yes, her name and company name are still wrong on this promo video I grabbed from YouTube. They fixed the one on the TLC website, but I was unable to get that one :) sorry Haris!) Kelly clearly LUVS your CUVA too and I think it's a winner!

Robyn Zimmer and her Window Origamilook so fabulous, I don't know anyone who wouldn't want these beautiful window treatments in their home! Definitely a "why didn't I think of that" invention.

Wishing all three of you ladies the best of luck! We will be watching and rooting for you.

Kelly, if there's a chance you might be reading this, I hope the hip mends quickly and that Mark is waiting on you personally and appropriately (wink, wink).


  1. Window origami can't hit the market fast enough. I want it now!!!

  2. Very exciting - with or without HSN I cannot imagine Window Origami not doing well.

    Just found out that after tomorrow night HM will move to the Noon time slot on TLC. Hoping this means that maybe more women are home watching/shopping during this time of the day?

    Guess we will see.

    Time to practice some of that "alternate nostril breathing" Haris Lender talked about :).

    XO Thanks for reading!

  3. Nice post, Jen. I REALLY wish they hadn't changed the time for HM. No way I'll be able to watch in that very odd timeslot. I'll have to have my daughter "re-tivo" the show at the new time for me. I'm not liking that change at all...and especially not for our Deedra's show! Bummer. Ginny

  4. Hi All!

    Yes, the final two shows will be at a new time on TLC. Several friends appearing on the shows, have asked to get the word out on this. Well Adjusted's blog is my first step in doing just that.

    I'll be e-mailing, texting, Facebooking,... any links and friends I may have. Helping fellow inventors during their time to shine is what it's all about.

    Thanks for your support,
    :) Debra Lee

  5. I'm bummed that it's the finial two shows - how time flies!

  6. Good morning! Thanks for the comments ~ Let's help spread the good word and even if folks aren't home on the 17th for the new time slot we can remind people to set their dvrs/tivos etc.

    With that said, I suppose I AM one of those who can possibly watch/tweet/cheer at noon because that's what time my youngest gets on the bus for afternoon kindergarten and then I come back and work from home.

    Hope everyone's day is off to a great start!

    Thanks Debra for checking in here - it is always exciting to see what you have to say!


  7. Hi Jen and fellow inventors,
    I just put up a new post and I am looking for people who have tried out for Reality tv to give tv tips. Jen I would love to have you post your comments. I did mention your blog on my post. Check it out if you can, Happy New Year,
    Erika Berry

  8. Oh my goodness, Erika - I just saw this and will read over the weekend and comment - thank you SO much!!

    Cheers to inventors!
