At the end of 2014 and into the beginning of 2015, I was filmed to be a feature on a Showtime Docu-Series called “3am” about New York City Nightlife. When they told me that my homies Fat Jew and Kirill Was Here would be fellow cast members, I was down. Despite being super unsure and against the idea of my personal space being invaded…they assured me they wouldn’t dare, yet they found their way filming my therapy sessions where I discuss my childhood of domestic abuse, putting me on my first date after 8 years of being in a relationship and recording random trials and tribulations of work.

It has been 2 years since this debuted and since then I’ve heard a lot of great reviews about it. What I found the most was that, a lot of people felt connected and inspired from the show. I guess opening up wasn’t so bad. And anyways, everyone is so short attention span these days. I’m sure it will all be forgotten tomorrow! Ha.

Peep Some of The Episodes Here!

Read the ORIGINAL POST below…

Yes, you heard me right – I’m featured on a ShowTime Docuseries and as I type that I’m still questioning how I got here. Literally. I went from wanting to stay behind the camera when I started my career, to bending against my views on social media to now being featured on sort of reality TV. It started in ’06 when I reluctantly started blogging and I started to meet you guys – sending me messages and me realizing that I had friends all over the world just like me! So I continued to share!

Anyways, Sure this isn’t your typical show and it is in fact shot beautifully, but still…I have no idea how this will turn out, but it shall be interesting.

3-am

  • Josh (“The Fat Jew”), an internet celebrity and self-described “Magellan” of nightlife in the Big Apple;
  • Kirill (“Kirill Was Here”) a nightlife photographer who gets even the most uptight girls to strip in the clubs;
  • Vashtie (“Va$htie”) a gorgeous DJ forced to deal with her troubled past;
  • Markus, a glamorous doorman and stand-up comedian who decides who’s in and who’s out; and
  • Samantha (“Abby”) a beautiful escort who longs for a more normal life but struggles to walk away.

In each episode, characters are tracked across a single night, building to a special “3am moment,” when something important and life changing happens. Stories cross not only the night but also the season. Our subjects’ lives may all be different but they all share one thing in common – a love for the wild ride that only happens at 3am. Buckle up.

Los Angeles, CA (May 11, 2015) – Ever wonder where the night will take you in the city that never sleeps? Take a penetrating joyride into the bizarro world of late-night New York City. 3AM is a high-energy documentary series that follows a cornucopia of characters – drag queens, artists, escorts, and other insomniacs, all trying to turn fantasy into reality while flaunting every rule in the book. Executive Producer Dick Wolf says, “There’s nothing like this on TV.” Anything goes at this hour, so leave all inhibitions at the door. While most respectable folks are tucked in at home, the bolder and braver outlaw set are out defying the norms of acceptable and conventional behavior in a search for love, sex, fame and notoriety that can only come as the clock strikes 3.

3AM is a docu-series that weaves together the stories of five New Yorkers – Josh (“The Fat Jew”), an internet celebrity and self-described “Magellan” of nightlife in the Big Apple; Kirill (“Kirill Was Here”) a nightlife photographer who gets even the most uptight girls to strip in the clubs; Vashtie (“Va$htie”) a gorgeous DJ forced to deal with her troubled past; Markus, a glamorous doorman and stand-up comedian who decides who’s in and who’s out; and Samantha (“Abby”) a beautiful escort who longs for a more normal life but struggles to walk away.

The filming was intense and at times I was just overwhelmed and over it, but I can’t believe it’s finally done and about to debut. I hope you all enjoy it, or in the very least find it entertaining. A lot of it is the me you know, but here and there I share elements of my life that are more private and revealing. Here goes nothing
