Hi everyone! Hope all is well. There are a few things I wanted to discuss.

I don't have any current interviews back from the people I sent to, so I will be taking a small hiatus until then.

Thank you for all the loyal spielers and the support. Please share and spread the word.

If you are on twitter, follow us there @thesoapspiel. You can also find us on Facebook. I will be updating that daily or every other day.

Take care everyone and spiel!

Doing something different this week. One of my dear friends is a star to me. I do believe we all are and need to shine. Well, I am making my friend Daphne Mahotiere shine today. I am indeed her biggest fan!  She is beautiful inside and out and I hope you enjoy!

Thanks for joining me again Daph!
You have been diagnosed with Crohn's Disease. When were you diagnosed? Tell us briefly what that is and your experience.

I was diagnosed on 3/28/2012 after a grueling 8 months of doctors trying to figure out what was wrong with me. The textbook definition of Crohn’s Disease is a form of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). It usually affects the intestines, but may occur anywhere from the mouth to the end of the rectum (anus). The TMI definition is that your guts are turning inside out. To put Crohn’s into context, if you’ve ever had food poisoning multiply that by 100 then add the flu and multiply that by 100 and then add in how you would feel after working a 16-hour shift at McDonalds and multiply that by 10. That would be a general description of a day in the life of Crohn’s.

You love to travel. What places have you been blessed to visit?

Traveling gives me LIFE!! Since my diagnosis, I had to learn to appreciate my own life today and make my own dreams come true. I have been blessed to visit Costa Rica, Beijing, Xi’An, Shanghai, Manhattan, Vegas, Los Angeles, Cancun, Hawaii, Dubai, Abu Dubai, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Singapore and Bangkok. I have a trip to Tokyo planned for October 2014.

What are your thoughts on being single? I ask this because I just love you and your words of wisdom regarding this subject.

Being single is a state of mind because I’m alone but not lonely. I used to be a relationship junkie until I became ill. That’s when I had to take the time to fall in love with me which is something I had never done in the past. I’ve learned to create happiness in my own life without being dependent upon someone else to do it for me. If I meet that special someone someday, great. If I don’t, that’s great too because I’ve created my own happiness and appreciation for my life.
You have started your own reality show. Tell us about that. Any words of wisdom to leave us with? I started a reality show with my family called Mingling With The Mahotieres aka #MWTM which is currently on hiatus. I have since formed a partnership with a production company called DaphRo Productions, LLC and we are working on a lot of exciting TV projects slated for release for the 2014-2015 season.

Love you and thanks so much! You truly inspire me xoxo

Love you too! Thank you for having me!
