I first saw Jeannie Mai on "Stir TV" a Bay Area-based Asian American magazine style tv show. Unfortunately "Stir TV" didn't last, but for Jeannie it was just another stepping stone in her career as a television host. You can now see her giving makeovers on the USA Network. Jeannie is also a celebrity makeup artist and started a styling company called The Doll Service.
Jeannie tells us about "Character Fantasy"

In today's digital age, you can write and record your own music, make music videos and market yourself on the Web. That's just what our next guest Natalise did. Originally from the Bay Area, Natalise is pursuing her dreams as a singer/songwriter here in LA. She took some time away from finishing her third album to sit down with Renee in our "studio."
"Get Me Off" - Natalise
