In the mid-nineties while attending a private dinner party with friends,
and after one of Ms Mitchell's insightful interpretations of the meta-physical
world, the whole table laughed, Robert Shaye (Creator of New
Line Cinema) & Coco Brown (private Investor) said
"Now that's what we should do!!! Instead of investing our money into the
next film project, we should hire a couple of camera guys to follow
Patricia and catch her speaking candidly, it would be sheer entertainment,
delightful and an absolute success." Thus, Reality TV was born.
(In Patricia's own words)
"The guy's were hired and the camera crew followed me for one week in my
very fast life in New York City. I saw the video & was horrified. It never
became of anything, (Thank-God) but the seed of Reality TV was born.... To name
one of so many eventful evenings."
