She's got that big court appearance in Wharton tomorrow and now it seems that home girl is turning her lemon of a last year into lemonade with a reality TV series. She's teamed up with Houston based filmmaker Cressandra Thibodeaux team together to announce the launch of the new reality show, “BEING NIKKI.”
I've cataloged some of her trials and tribulations on this blog over the last year, and here's the press release for it. Will have to make sure I keep September 29 open.
New Reality Series:
Transsexual Widow of Fallen Firefighter, Nikki Araguz and Houston Based Filmmaker, Cressandra Thibodeaux, team together to announce an original new reality show, “BEING NIKKI.”
This uniquely innovative, intriguing and inspiring reality show follows Nikki, through her grief a year after the sudden death of her husband, the daunting pressures of a major legal battle regarding her late husband’s estate, lobbying for marriage equality, participating in a documentary about her life, writing her autobiography, and her quest to find peace again, as a single transsexual woman. Nikki has an engaging personality and zeal for life that is so refreshing and her antics will keep you intrigued wondering what is she going to do next.
Nikki’s story has been featured on ABC’s 20/20, PBS, FOX, NBC, CBS and major newspapers around the world from Houston, Texas to New York, New York and Paris, France to Sydney, Australia. The world has been watching as her life unfolds right before her own eyes. Watch as she takes her life back to her own hands and allows us to be a part of the journey.
The series offers viewers an honest, up-close and personal view at real life complexities of being a transsexual in this modern age. Nikki has overcome many obstacles through her experiences, and is thoroughly comfortable with who she is. During the show you will get to see what dating is like for Nikki and getting a glimpse into her day-to-day life. As we move towards a transparent society, Nikki is looking for someone with whom to share her life, honestly, fully, and deeply.
We are in search of single men willing to date the beautiful, dynamic, smart and driven woman – Nikki Araguz. We are looking for college-educated, physically fit, handsome men – a sense of humor is a must.
