When viewers tuned in to new cable television series, The Client List, on Lifetime Television, they also caught a glimpse of the Ultimate Teen Pageant Notebook.
April 11, 2012 – Lifetime Television premiered its new original series, The Client List, starring Jennifer Love Hewitt. And while hundreds of thousands of viewers waited in anticipation of the weekly drama based on the hit made-for-television movie of the same title, one viewer was especially anxious, Cherie Wimberly, the author of the Ultimate Pageant Notebook. One of her pageant preparation workbooks, The Ultimate Teen Pageant Notebook, was used as a prop in the storyline.
A fan of the movie, which aired last year on Lifetime, this author was surprised and thrilled to receive a very special request from the production company filming the show. “When the producers first contacted me, I wasn’t sure if it was for real,” Wimberly explains, “but once they sent over the release and paperwork I was so excited.”
In a scene set at the local beauty salon, a young pageant contestant (named Twinkle) is spotted reading her copy of the Ultimate Pageant Notebook prior to a pageant coaching session, while Riley (played by Love Hewitt) engages in a heated but friendly discussion with her mother.
The main character of the series (and movie) brought to life by Jennifer Love Hewitt is also portrayed as a former beauty queen. “Knowing the lead character’s background it was really nice to see the writers incorporate pageantry into another aspect of the storyline,” the author said. “Her character is very smart, and finds herself in an unthinkable situation. Although the premise of the show is quite unconventional, it’s good to see pageant people portrayed in an intelligent light, instead of a negative one.”
Pageant people and viewers of all types can catch the new series Sunday nights on Lifetime. Check your local listings. For more information about the Ultimate Pageant Notebook, visit the Pageant U website at www.PageantU.com
