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.
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.)
