SoundBits: Blaire Allison’s on a Mission to Deliver Romantic Bliss

What do you get when you roll empathy, intuition, clairvoyance and the power to heal into one perky but tough-loving woman? Blaire Allison is right. The Love Guru host, who hails from New York City, teaches listeners an easier, more natural way to find love – and perhaps even live happily ever after. So with that promise in mind, we won’t keep our guru waiting one moment longer.

Give us a 15-second pitch for your show – why should listeners tune in?

If you’re interested in the secret love lives of others – and want to get a handle on your love life – this is the show for you. Each week I feature a real guest who shares truth about what’s happening in his or her love life. And the truth is healing. Whatever romantic strife you may be facing, you’ll soon see that you’re not alone.

Tell us two things listeners would be surprised to learn about you?

I don’t just ask others about the frustrations in their love lives. I’ve shared the struggles of my own love life, particularly when I was out to find the right man and tie the knot. In fact, I put up a website, MarryBlaire.com, and shared every step of that often painful, yet ultimately blissful, journey. As it turned out, people across the world could relate, the story was covered on MSNBC and CNN, and in the New York Times, Glamour magazine and other publications.

Who’s your broadcasting hero?

I love, love, love veteran NYC deejay Wendy Williams, who recently debuted her syndicated daytime TV talk vehicle, The Wendy Williams Show. She’s so real and down-to-earth. Fun, funny and a Cancer, like myself.

CAPTION: With her broadcasting idol, Wendy Williams.

If you could book any person on earth as a guest on your show, who would it be and why?

I don’t think I could answer this question. I love the lives of real people. I love hearing true stories of what goes on behind closed doors – and those are the people I get to speak to on my show.

As we speak, what are you wearing?

A sports bra and shorts. It’s hot out today!

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever done while in the middle of hosting your show?

Broke wind. (But it was OK. It was just a little one.)

    The guests are all so pathetic and sad! Too lonely hearts clubish for me. Not very uplifting at all.

    She doesn’t really give advice as much as she lets guests go on and on about their drama in order to fill time. Also, no need to sell so hard. A simple mention of your website at the beginning and end is enough. Guests are depressing.

    BTW….Blaire, you need to learn how to filter yourself more. I don’t need the image of a woman in a sports bra and shorts farting throughout a show.

    With all due respect to Ms. Allison, her show is the online equivalent of The Jerry Springer show. The guests are dysfunctional and the episode titles are intentionally salacious. (i.e. “Blaire’s First Threesome!”) She’d fare better is she, like Springer, were in on the joke instead of insisting she’s qualified to tell anyone what to do about their love life. At best she’s a kooky oddball with stars in her eyes who’s read one too many self-help books and now believes she is an “expert.” At worst, she’s an immensely needy self-absorbed attention seeker who doesn’t appear to have a strong grasp on reality. Her guests aren’t just lonely men and women looking for love. They’re all people with a disturbing level of low self-esteem and obsessive tendencies in need of professional counseling. Telling a woman who’s spent 10+ years obsessing over a married man with whom she shared one night of passion who has abandoned her not once, not twice, but three times only to resurface when he felt like getting a little on the side to take to her journal and write a list of her wants and needs isn’t just pointless, it’s irresponsible.

    Fine if Allison wants to conduct comedic gripe sessions with lonely singles, but she’s seeking out people with serious issues and exploiting them for traffic to her own website.
