Ruth's Interview with Stefany regarding Kelly Ripa's new TV show on TLC, Homemade Millionaire

Ruth, one of Di Manno Designs interns, wanted to interview me about my experience with being on TLC's Homemade Millionaire. I thought it was a good idea and so here it is...

Did you hear? Di Manno Designs exclusive collection was featured on Kelly Ripa's new hit reality show Homemade Millionaire on TLC and today Stefany is dishing about her experience on the show! Check out what the buzz is about on TLC and don’t forget to visit

How did the process of appearing on Homemade Millionaire come about?
My friend Juan actually told me about the casting call they were having, and I almost didn’t go because I did not want to be on a reality show, but when I thought about all the effort, money and time I have put into Di Manno Designs, I decided I owed it to the company to go because it could be a good opportunity.

What was the first thought that came to mind when you found out that they were interested in Di Manno Designs?
I was so happy and excited to be able to be part of the show! I was also shocked because when I went to the audition, I knew the odds of actually booking it, so I wasn’t expecting that! I was just thinking it was a good exercise for me to go through and good to also get my product in front of the casting agents/producers. And I was relieved because they had me on hold from December until March. I auditioned in August, was called in December to be “on hold” and in March was booked to be on it and we started taping shortly after.

How was your experience on the show? What word/s would you use to explain or express it?
With one word, NERVE RACKING!!! They wouldn’t tell us ANYTHNG about what we would be doing on the show, we found out that day right before we had to do something so I had to think on my feet. I felt like one big ball of anxiety! I like when I have time to prepare and practice, but on this show, that wasn’t the agenda while making it. Working with Kelly was great though, she is so kind, caring and humble. She was cracking jokes to break the ice and make us feel comfortable. At one point she even apologized for getting her lines wrong, saying we deserved better! I was like, uhhmm…if it weren’t for you, we wouldn’t even be here! LOL It was refreshing to see her, a celebrity, so down to earth and genuine. It was also great to meet Wendy Robbins, who was also on the show, who invented the Tingler! Always inspiring to meet people who have so much passion and are successful. I liked the fact she was so positive and upbeat. Even after being eliminated, she told me to never stop at no for an answer and encouraged me to keep trying to open doors and get my product out there. Take advantage of all opportunities! Was great to hear that at that moment. After all, one door closes and another opens...:)

How do you think the show will add on to the success of Di Manno designs?
I am hoping it will open doors for my company. I am looking for mass production. I think regardless, the press is good because it shows people that the product has potential and that there is something special about Di Manno Designs for it to be chosen out of thousands of contestants to be on an episode of the show. I see the potential it has to go mass, so it will be good when I have that mass selling platform to prove it!

What’s next for the company/ where do you see your product in a couple of years from now?
I see it selling mass on TV, on the web and in more retail stores in the US as well as overseas.

What can the customers of Di Manno Designs look forward to next?
More collections and possibly even different accessories! Stay tuned! :)
