In the control room on our last day of Marriage Boot Camp!
As we gear up for the season finale and reunion special of MBC this Friday, I wanted to share with you some behind the scenes info on what filming was really like! For starters, YES there were cameras everywhere. The only place cameras were NOT allowed was in the bathroom. We searched the rest of the house and the only other place there were no cameras were the stairwell.
At some point most of us did get paranoid. There were plenty of moments where we tried to whisper to each other and hid and covered our mics...at those moments, LOL, producers would appear out of NOWHERE! They literally were just hiding in secret places in the mansion.
Although there were tons of people working in production, we really didn't get to see or hang out with them. They were always locked in a control room somewhere. If we had a problem in the house we had a bat phone (the only phone in the house) that called the control room.
Cameramen were also not allowed to talk to us, but I talked to them anyway and even got a few of them to break and talk back.
We were not allowed TV, phones, magazines...nothing because of course that could distract us and doesn't lead in any way to good reality TV.
We wore mics all day long. You only took your mic off when you were getting into bed, and yes it is possible to forget the cameras are there and that you are mic'd up.
I was breast pumping during the entire filming and had to take tons of breaks to go off and pump that's why I am not in some scenes, it's also the reason why you can spy me packaging up breast milk in a few of the episodes.
Things that blew my mind...When Porsha's dad showed up, when they brought out the lie detector test, Kiersten's reaction to the lie detector test, and Byron lol.
Crazy that the journey is coming to an end! Could have never imagined that the show would be such a huge hit! If you want to check out Behind the Scenes photos click HERE
