Hollywood Filmmakers Director Steven C. Barber and Producer Tamara Henry confess their love is a "reality" ... meaning yes they've been busy making documentaries but something else was also going on right under our noses on TV. And next Wednesday night you just might see them on The Arsenio Hall Show's "Who You With?"
In the L.A. L.A. land of make believe... one Hollywood couple says their love is REAL. In fact, they might hold the record for reality TV couple longevity. Director Steven C. Barber and Producer Tamara Henry have been busy making films together since they met a decade ago on a starfish covered beach in Los Angeles. They've been living out their entire romantic life on reality TV.
Tamara lives in the tsunami zone of Venice Beach, in the old stomping grounds of Charlie Chaplin. Her Los Angeles Comedy Award hangs in her home office where she writes and produces segments for two television shows she anchors. She watches dolphins jumping out of the water from her home office in the building where Alec Baldwin lived in the 1980s.
Steven lives in an flat overlooking ritzy Montana Avenue atop the beach bluffs in Santa Monica... the descheveled documentarian's "man cave" where he pitches billionaires to fund the films he's directing. Two of their docs have been on the Oscar Shortlist. Their next two films are going to blow the lid off Hollywood.
#Starfish. These two media minded producers met on a starfish covered beach early one morning in the summer of 2004. Before Facebook. Before Youtube. She turned this ad sales guy into a filmmaker and now their films are on the big screen, TV and Netflix - inspirational documentaries that serve the military and the differently abled.
This caffeinated couple with mad marketing skills seems to hold the key to Hollywood's "real" love story. Vanilla Fire is now taking meetings with producers to make their love story a reality ... for television. A reality TV wedding that will raise awareness about the health of our Oceans.
If love was a sport in Hollywood, then Steven C. Barber is the "real" Jerry Maguire. This Hollywood Director is also the sports agent to the AmericanBladerunner.com Blake Leeper. This is why they're planning a Honeymoon to RIO Olympics 2016. Their "son" Blake calls Tamara "Momma T" http://youtu.be/
Is reality TV really real? Well, what about reality itself? Just ask metaphysical reality TV star Tamara Henry. Lights... Tamara... Action! Add coffee, and she's off into the stratosphere, contemplating the super position theory of all possible outcomes of her parallel, holographic universe. This conscious content creator manifested her fiance right through the TV. This reality TV couple met on the legendary reality show "Blind Date" in 2006 and have lived out their entire love life on more reality television shows than you can count on your hands and toes from Oxygen to Bravo. They survived the making of four films, a millionaire matchmaker, and a little couple's therapy, only to find that his red carpet proposal on Oscar night is leading to an upcoming reality TV wedding.
How did their "REAL" love story unfold on TV?
He was a former cruise ship director/DJ and has a romance cruise book that was endorsed by Gavin MacLeod: http://youtu.be/
See Vanilla Fire's "Love Boat" beach wedding plans:
Are they doing it for the show? Or is show biz their REAL true love? He makes films. She makes TV. It's much easier for these two to walk down the red carpet than to walk down the aisle. Will it take a TV Wedding to lure this couple into holy matrimony?
Together they are making this love story a "reality." They are ready to launch their own reality show "The Doc Side." Oscar Shortlisted, Emmy Nominated, Vanilla Fire has it ALL!!!
