Am I stupid?

    I have recently been asked on a TV program to talk about my ex husband as they found my hub about it. Its a long way to travel, about 400 miles but they said they would pay for it, but I don't want to do it, as my brother isn't well, and my family are not that keen, would you do it? I know it would help me with my ebook, but I am not sure, any ideas? will it help with the book, or is it a waste of time? thanks

      What programme is it Nell?
      I would be very cautious- these type of things have a way of causing grief to those that we dont want it caused to

        Its called The Moore Show in Wales, Kevin Moore phoned me earlier tonight to say that he would come and do an initial interview in my town tomorrow but then pay me to go to Wales, I know I should go, and most people would jump at the chance, but I don't really want too, maybe if it was in London, but Buckinghamshire is a long way from Cardiff

    I've just read the hub in question and I agree with C1W.

      Thanks Empress, I think it might be okay when I have finished the ebook, but before is a bit dodgy, I know they say its a 'nice' show, but we have something called Jeremy Kyle over here, when the people being interview get heckled and laughed at, so no I think you both are right thanks!

        They seem to be OK, and not at all like Jeremy Kyle!!

        Having said that, I fully understand your reluctance - this could hurt a lot of people in your close family. It is one thing to write about something, but quite another to discuss it on TV.

    I suppose before I gave my opinion on whether you should or shouldn't do it, I'd want to know just what it is about your ex-husband that makes him so special a TV program would want to pay you to talk about him? I don't live in your country, so I'm not familure with the show. So, without any facts, my best bet would be to say, go with your gut. Trust your own good judgment.

      Part of me wants to do it, its something different and not something that happens every day, but on the other hand my family don't want me too, after speaking to them I have to agree, its just a gender issue that I wrote about,   I think I have made the right decision thanks
