ACTRESS AND AUTHOR - NADIA SAHARI
My invitation to the 63rd Primetime Emmys
Most of you know me from Facebook, Twitter, my memoir
Breakaway etc…. You know I love people, animals, the universe
and more than that I love God; I believe in God and I can’t imagine
not having God in my life and in my heart. I am living my dream
as an actress. After abuse and obstacles one after another (recently
uterine cancer) and a year ago thyroid cancer, I am back on my
feet and ready to go. Thank God and the continuous prayers from
all my friends and family, I survived everything and now I am
clean. It was all caught early and removed by my brilliant doctors
I opened my email and there was an invitation to the Emmys.
You can see the Emmy logo on my FB that was on my invitation.
After receiving my invitation to the Emmys, I did as I always do
From my list of friends, I decided to invite two women Christy Lee
Hughes and Olga Rudnitsky. Christy Lee Hughes was introduced
to me through our fine editor Wayne Zamora. Olga Rudnitsky I
met in NYC at a writers’conference, where I was invited as guest
speaker back in April of 2011. I personally invited the two women
to attend the 63rd Primetime Emmys at The Nokia in Hollywood
on September 18th, 2011. When I asked Olga and Christy if they
would like to go, they responded by saying, “Are you kidding
me?” They both were thrilled and said, YES! Hearing the joy in
their voices made me so happy. I love to see people happy and
feeling great about things. I am a motivator, encourager, and a
The three of us traveled at different dates, met in Hollywood
and began preparation for Sunday the 18th. We began our
shopping spree for dresses and jewelry, etc. We each found the
gowns that we were going to wear. Actually, Olga and I brought
gowns with us and decided to just tease ourselves at the mall and
see what trouble we could get into. I got into trouble, Olga was
happy with her gown. I brought a gown, but found another that I
liked better. Always the case when you see a new one that looks
more glamorous. Although, my BCBG MAX AZRIA was a
runway dress and very different, I had to have this one (See photo).
So I bought it. Christy had a dress she wanted to wear.
The night of the Emmys, Christy came over with her dress and
was ready to roll with us. All three of us spent the day getting our
makeup on, hair was already done, a kind neighbor friend named
Krystle whom I adore, took photos of us during our prep. My
friend Olga put her dress on and it was spectacular on her. She
looked like a Russian princess. For Olga this was a well deserved
getaway from the madness in her life, a fantasy come true for her.
Christy who is an actress in Hollywood was so happy and so
excited and she looked amazing in her dotted dress. We all had
dreams to live. Christy, Olga and I set off to have a great time at
We hired a limo from a friend I have known for six years and has
been my driver to all events such as Emmys and Oscars, etc.
Herman Garcia is a good friend and is always available for me. He
picked us up from the hotel at 3:15 pm and we were on our way.
The crowds were screaming and limos lined the streets of
Hollywood. Security was plentiful. We were escorted to the red
carpet area by security. Right beside us were the following
celebrities: Jimmy Kimmel, Kate Winslet, Conan O’Brien,
Melissa McCarthy, Edie Falco, Tina Faye, and Kyle MacLachlan
of Desperate Housewives who stuck his face into my camera and
smiled (See photo on my FB). We had lots of fun!
The red carpet will always be unforgettable, amazing, and filled
with joy and laughter by all, the audience and the nominees. I
congratulate each and every actor who won and was nominated.
They are all winners. Just a nomination in itself is a tremendous
accomplishment. I would be happy one, but I will win the Emmy.
Keep your eyes open. I am working hard to achieve my dream. I
am almost there. Now life is free of surgeries, abuse, whatever, no
more obstacles, there I said it! Hear me Universe, NO MORE! I
am going forward and I am going to get the role of my life one day
and a movie from mya book “BREAKAWAY: HOW I
SURIVIVED ABUSE will be on the big screen. I am in talks with
screenwriters right now. Please read my memoir, It is on

You are all amazing and wonderful, don’t let anyone tell you that
you CAN’T. YOU CAN and you will, if I can do it so can you.
Remember this: IT IS BY CHOICE AND NOT BY CHANCES
THAT WE CHANGE OUR CIRCUMSTANCES.
LOVE TO ALL!!!
