I spoke with whom some might call the Style Network’s “Big Rich Texas” cast antagonists Bonnie (“Bon” or “Dr. Bon”) Blossman and her daughter Whitney Whatley, but don’t get it twisted, these gals can hold their own.  Bon has a PhD in Biology and teaches at the University of North Texas at Arlington where she’s won an award for her teaching excellence.  She also has a myriad of other pursuits including: a published author whose most recent work is the novel in the Fiona Frost Mystery Series, CEO of My Mystery Party, Get Your Nerd On clothing line celebrating intelligent women, CEO of Zakkem Publishing Company, a recording artist with several music releases, and a guitarist.  She’s also an avid philanthropist who supports a vast array of charities in support of children, health, and the LGBT community.

Whitney has many similar interests as her mom, and they often work together on various ventures.  As mentioned in my season 1 interview, Whitney has her own t-shirt line and you’ll learn more about what she’s accomplished in this first part of the interview series.  I sense that Whitney’s a very determined young lady.  At this point in her life, the sky’s the limit, so we’ll just wait and see how this cunt tattoo sporting gal blossoms into her own.

I had the opportunity to interview Bon and Whitney during season 1 of “Big Rich Texas” and that interview has been consistently among the most read articles on my blog.  With that said, I had to speak to them again, now that season 2 is underway, and this time I’m bringing you even more than I did before.  I’ll be splitting up the interview into parts with this one being the launch.  In part 1, I revisit Whitney’s tattoos and a particular one that has brought her fame…or infamy, address some rumors courtesy of a comment made on one of my “Big Rich Texas” blog posts, and share some of their newest endeavors that you haven’t read anywhere else yet.  😉

I conducted this interview just prior to episode 5 aired from season 2 and am releasing it just prior to the airing of episode 6 so don’t get mad at a sista if you read something that has been sorted out this season.  If any of you are like me, my DVR is my savior, so you might appreciate a few teasers to inspire an afternoon on the couch catching up on “Big Rich Texas.”

I’ve embedded several videos of Bon and Whitney throughout.  Make sure you scroll to the bottom for even more videos including a super cute animated series “Botox Bonnie and Wonder Whit”- just one of Bon’s animated creations.

INTERVIEW: PART ONE

Whitney’s Tattoos

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Have any opportunities come your way directly as the result of being on show?

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  Whitney has something.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  Oh ya, I’m going to do a pin-up girl photo shoot.  It’s probably going to be in two magazines.  One is called ‘Inked Girls.’

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  By the way, was the ‘cunt’ tattoo ever fully covered up?

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  Oh no, I still have it.  I don’t want to get rid of it.  I think it’s too famous now.

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  I disagree with her.  I think she should get rid of it.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  No, I think I’ll make it more pretty.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  You’re going to have to insure it like J-Lo insured her butt after she became famous for it.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  Did she really?

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Yes, she did back when her music career, in particular, really started taking off and people used to talk about the J-Lo booty.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  That’s hilarious!  I need insurance for my foot.

Blog Commenter Fact Check: Dispelling Myths

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  There’s someone [“Allie”] who left a comment on my blog, and I just want to fact check.  Some of it is related to ‘Big Rich Texas’ in general and some of it is related to you, Bon, specifically…How do you respond to people who say the show is fake?

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  This is how it works.  We pitch to…the production company, exactly what we have going on in our lives.  Like they’ll say, ‘We’re going to film between April and June,’ and we just tell them what’s going on, and they basically will cherry pick what’s the best thing that they think will fit in their story and what will make good TV.  Like, when I told them I was teaching a class, they almost came to film it but then they backed off…For [people] to say it’s fake is kind of ludicrous.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  Whenever I got in a fight with Tyler, I’m not an actress, and when I fight that’s totally real.  There’s real feelings involved.  The fights are real.  Me and Kalyn really do not get along.

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  One more thing about calling our show fake, I can only speak for me and Whitney and what we’re involved in, but everything…can be fact checked.  All you need to do is Google us, look at our websites.  We’re very verifiable.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  So this commenter on my blog goes on.  I always find it awkward to ask people questions about money, but I’m just going to ask the question since they stated it as fact, ‘A season pays $2000.’  You can just respond with ‘true,’ ‘false,’ or ‘no comment.’

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  False.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Are you leasing your house?

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  That is true.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Would that be true of pretty much everybody else on the show?  The other part of the comment made on my blog was that ‘Pam is on the verge of bankruptcy.’

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  I have no idea [about Pam].  The reason I lease my house is because it is not a good financial decision at this point with our recession to buy, and my son is about to be a senior in high school, and we don’t want to be tied down to a big family home at this point in our lives…It definitely is not a reflection on my income.

Bon and Whitney’s New Ventures

Ifelicious:  I could totally see the two of you doing a spinoff.  If you ever did…what would you like it to show about your lives together?

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  We have this real different direction that we’re about to take…we were just talking about it today is doing a Bill Nye the Science Guy meets Pee Wee’s Playhouse kind of show.  At first, it’s going to be an online show, and we might pitch it as a TV show later.  I’m a scientist.  I’m a teacher, and Whitney would be my assistant on the show.  It’s going to have puppets and all kinds of stuff.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  I think she should leave the puppets out of it.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Why?…Everybody loves a puppet.

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  Thank you!  We’re doing puppets.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  How developed is that now?  Is it just an idea you’re bouncing around?  Is it actively happening?

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  I have all of my outlines down.  I’m in character development right now, but I’m probably going to release the first video on [my] YouTube [channel] in a month.  I’m going to start at the college level because I promised my past students that I would do it.  [The first one is] going to be Biochemistry which is boring, but I’m going to make it not boring.  I’m going work my way down to middle school [level], and that’s where I’m going to find a home with the show.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Do you have an official title for the show yet?

Big Rich Texas Bon Blossman Ifelicious 3x3 crop Bon:  Not yet, but I’m tying it into my new murder mystery novel series which is Fiona Frost.  The character I’m going to play is going to be Fiona’s mother’s friend.

…Also, Whitney wants to tell you about her Med Spa that she’s going to open.

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  I’m a licensed aesthetician in the state of Florida, but I’m going to go back to school for my Texas license.  I’d say about this time next year, I’ll have my own Med Spa.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Oh really?  Since we’re talking about that, I might as well segue into some questions about Dr. Adelglass.  Are you still working for him?

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  You’ll have to watch to find out.

Ifelicious Ifelicious:  Oh geez Louise!  I can only guess where that’s heading.  Are you going to get fired?

Big Rich Texas Whitney Whatley Ifelicious Whitney:  I don’t know.  I’m not a bad kid.  I don’t get fired.

Stay tuned for more with Bon and Whitney on Ifelicious Thoughts!  Given that episode 6 airs today, I’ll be putting the next part online shortly where we talked about the newest cast members DeAynni Hatley and her daughters Shaye and Amber as well as returning to that good ole beef between Pam and Bon that takes a new turn in episode 6, Bon and Whitney’s drama with Leslie Birkland and Kalyn Niccole Braun.  The series will wrap up in the third part with a look back at Bon’s renewing of vows and finding out if Whitney ever plans to leave the nest.
