  • (13:46:04) Adela Lupșe: in Oradea!
  • (13:46:51) KV: so, direct from university, you became a reporter...how did you come to present your call-in show?
  • (13:48:35) Adela Lupșe: before the call-in show I was a participant in a national reality show! and after this I was asked to do a casting. for my curent job
  • (13:48:57) KV: oh, what kind of reality show? Something like Big Brother?
  • (13:50:28) Adela Lupșe: more or less, it was called "daughter-in-law for mom"
  • (13:50:34) KV: we have all kinds of these shows now -- shows where people live in a house, shows where people eat insects, shows where people pretend to go to the moon...
  • (13:51:09) KV: this was a show where they try to find a husband for a mom's son?
  • (13:52:52) Adela Lupșe: yes,something like that-I'm not sure if "mom's son" defines the type of guys there but anyways moms were very involved in the selection process
  • (13:53:29) KV: and in this show, did you find a boyfriend, a husband, something like this?
  • (13:55:32) Adela Lupșe: actually my goal from the start was not to win this thing or to find someone. I wanted to get some attention and get people to know my face
  • (13:56:17) KV: Ah ;) Why do you want this attention, just to become famous, or to influence people, or something else?
  • (13:58:12) Adela Lupșe: I want this attention because I'm aware of the fact that it is not easy to enter this world! and I was doing all this in order to increase my chances to get my dream job in television
  • (13:58:38) KV: ah! and this call-in show was the next step to the dream job?
  • (13:59:47) Adela Lupșe: I can say that this is a period in my evolution -a period that currently I enjoy a lot!

  • (14:01:32) Adela Lupșe: wow:)
  • (14:03:09) KV: yes? Exciting show?
  • (14:05:20) Adela Lupșe: it was just like a normal day in anyone\s life. the only different thing was that we had camera's on and we were all competing for the same goal(but this can apply for the normal life also )
  • (14:05:39) KV: competing? To get more people to phone in?
  • (14:06:53) Adela Lupșe: I thaught you meant the reality show, sorry
  • (14:06:57) KV: ah, I see

  • (14:15:57) KV: how do you feel, when you're on the show? Is it exciting, tiring?
  • (14:17:50) Adela Lupșe: for me it's always exciting. I enjoy it very much! :);;) If I'm tired at the end of the show it means I've done a good show. But I'm never tired during the show :*

  • (14:26:03) Adela Lupșe: ask me??
  • (14:26:20) KV: was there anything different about that day? About how you felt?
  • (14:28:02) Adela Lupșe: there was nothing different!. for me it was just a normal day at work
  • (14:28:45) KV: you had your hair and makeup ready, you talked to the producer, you went on camera, all ordinary.
  • (14:29:37) Adela Lupșe: exactely
  • (14:29:58) KV: and you were presenting the program, people were calling in...
  • (14:31:45) Adela Lupșe: just a regular day! :) I had a very big prize that day. maybe that was the reason why I got so excited:);;)
  • (14:32:09) KV: what was the prize?
  • (14:32:55) Adela Lupșe: it was 1500 the romanian currency
  • (14:33:48) KV: So. If it was a typical day...what happened?
  • (14:35:21) Adela Lupșe: the final hint was on the screen and it was time to hear the answer-that's all
  • (14:35:48) KV: That's all.
  • (14:35:55) Adela Lupșe: this all!
  • (14:36:00) Adela Lupșe: or u ask me??
  • (14:36:13) KV: well...I don't speak Romanian, so maybe I am missing some meaning.
  • (14:36:31) KV: How did you feel, then, when you began shouting? Many people have said you seemed angry...
  • (14:37:24) Adela Lupșe: I was just involved in the moment! people have different opinions:)
  • (14:38:02) KV: You weren't angry at all?
  • (14:38:40) Adela Lupșe: i would rather use the word excited
  • (14:38:59) KV: Even when you put your foot on the telephone.
  • (14:40:40) Adela Lupșe: even then, the whole moment was just my way to express my excitement!.
  • (14:41:14) KV: All we in most countries have seen is those two minutes. What happened afterward?
  • (14:42:53) Adela Lupșe: well the show went on ,I got my winner and moved on!
  • (14:43:25) KV: everything else was normal?
  • (14:44:07) Adela Lupșe: everything was normal
  • (14:44:29) KV: what was the first sign you had that something was unusual?
  • (14:46:18) Adela Lupșe: the fact that I saw this cut from the show on mtv russia or ukraine:d
  • (14:47:46) Adela Lupșe: soo??
  • (14:47:48) KV: What did that feel like?

  • (14:55:29) KV: What do you think, though, about some of the things they say, like "crazy"?
  • (14:56:53) Adela Lupșe: I think it is normal that people have prejudicies ,everyone is free to express his opinion in the same way that I;m free to do my job the best that I can!:)
  • (14:57:21) KV: you are not hurt by it?
  • (14:59:08) Adela Lupșe: I'm hurt if my family is unhappy with people's comments but I think I gain the wisdom to ignore the negative feedback!:0;;)

  • (15:07:05) KV: and a little bit sexy too?
  • (15:07:51) Adela Lupșe: what do you think?

  • (15:09:43) Adela Lupșe: you can express your opinion as a man also :)
  • (15:10:19) KV: I think after the interview I will express it :-D
  • (15:11:00) Adela Lupșe: you're professional-I respect that
  • (15:11:44) KV: So how has it changed your life, being so well-known on the internet? I've seen that you have had some interviews with television and radio in Romania.
  • (15:13:55) Adela Lupșe: yes,indeed I was invited in some tv shows in Romania and Hungary and people were able to see that I'm a normal,fun to be around person
  • (15:14:00) Adela Lupșe: what has changed?! not much,maybe just the fact that people recognise me on the street
  • (15:14:08) KV: does that happen often?
  • (15:14:53) Adela Lupșe: prety often ,yes:)
  • (15:15:33) KV: Does it help you get your dream?
