Sarasota native and resident Bri Oliva made her TV debut May 7, on the “Rachael Ray Show.” Oliva was selected to participate in a segment called “Hidden Dangers on the Playground.”
Oliva and her two children, Emma, 2, and A.J., 1, spent a full day with a film crew in Sarasota, then Oliva and her mother, Terri Saba, were whisked off to the Big Apple to be on the show.
On the day of taping, Oliva was given her own dressing room. And after an on-camera rundown from the other show guest, Dr. Ian Smith, of what germs were found on the playground, Oliva and Saba were given time to enjoy the city before heading home to the Sunshine State.
“All-in-all, it was a fantastic trip,” says Oliva. “I am grateful for the experience, which I will never forget. Given the chance to do it again ... I sure would.”
