Literally, right now, as I write this post, I'm sat on a plane from Austin to SLC. We wrapped the last episode of Queer Eye season 6, last night. It was a beautiful final episode that I can’t wait for you to watch. The season is such a beautiful one. And I promise I'm not just saying this, but I think it’s our best one yet!
It’s always SO bitter-sweet wrapping a season. I'm always excited to get home, but I'm always sad the last few days thinking “will this be the last time I work with my friends (Fab4) again? Will we ever do anything so impactful again? Will I ever get to feel such love from such a supportive audience?” Honestly, I don’t know any of those answers and I guess only time will tell, but it’s a scary/sad feeling.
Do I want to do another season? I do! I’d feel sad if it all ended last night. Yes, we’ve been more lucky than most, to get to film 6 seasons (plus a season in Japan) and work for 4 years in entertainment. Many would kill for such an opportunity, but am I ok to give it all up just yet? Nope, Im not.
I drove Antoni home last night, as we were struggling to say goodbye to each other, and we talked about how we don’t know if we’ll ever do anything that makes us feel such pride in our work again. That’s such a real fear and I pray that it’s unfounded.
I'm sat on this flight, next to my beautiful husband, Rob. Although we had a lovely time in Austin, we are so ready to get home. We haven’t been to our home in 10 weeks and we miss it so, so much. Normally, Rob comes and goes, when I'm shooting QE, but this time we’ve both been away, so who knows what mail-hell we’ll return home to. Thankfully, we have a house-sitter who at least brings it all in, but she sent me a pic of the pile of mail and it’s nuts!
This is not me complaining, at all, as Im so grateful for the life we have, but we’ll only have 2 days at home before we leave town again. I leave for 5 weeks, Rob leaves for 10 days. We’re heading to Iceland first. We’re doing a “baby-moon” thing. I didn’t know what that was until I moved to the US. We didn’t think we cared about doing that, but we’ll take any excuse to finally get to Iceland. It’s been at the very top of our bucket list for a decade now, so we cannot wait to finally make it happen.
Because I was working so much, Rob has made all of the arrangements and the things he’s planned have me so excited for this trip. I can hardly wait. I’ll let you know how the trip is going, when I'm out there. After that, I'm heading to England for work. So much to tell you about that, but will share when I'm out there.
Oh, and before I sign off, for now, a quick baby update. He’s coming along beautifully. Our surrogate is doing so well, and tells us that she’s had a really easy pregnancy, which we’re so relieved to hear. We’re just a few weeks away from due date, and then our lives will change forever. JOY!
But for now, I'm going to sit back and watch the new, exclusive episode of Queer Eye that’s on this Delta flight. None of us Fab5 have seen it yet. I'm so excited to finally watch. I hope my outfits are still chic, to me, as we shot the episode 2 years ago. Aaaargh!
