Polished Edge: Melissa Peterman of ‘Bet on Your Baby’ on ABC
Q: Do you come up with any of the ideas for “Bet on Your Baby”?
A: The first season it was my idea to have moments with the kids and roll camera and let kids talk. I guarantee something funny or something adorable will happen. For the second season, we brought in more of those moments. They have no editor. They don’t care what you think of them and that is what is so fun. Seeing as they are not my children, I am all for it.
Q: What have been some of your favorite moments?
A: I love watching the parents. The dynamic that is in their home, going through the decision-making process.
Q: You have an 8-year-old Riley, what are you up to with him?
A: Today we had the pleasure of watching second graders do a Bolivian dance and sing a song in Portuguese. There is nothing more enjoyable than watching children having to perform.
Q: What else are you working on?
A: Season 3 of “Baby Daddy” on ABC Family is currently airing and has been picked up for Season 4. I am once again hosting “The Sound of Music” sing-along at The Hollywood Bowl. It’s my 10th year doing it. It is so much fun. It is “Rocky Horror” meets Julie Andrews. And I am hosting a big charity for the Unusual Suspects Theatre Company that brings theater to at-risk kids. And I’m waiting for Riley to finish second grade so we can take a little summer vacation.
