“I thought it was kind of nuts, but it snowballed,” April says.
Her husband, Kit, died of brain cancer two years ago.
“One of the biggest things I say is I don’t want someone to fill Kit’s shoes. Her late husband was “just an amazing person, an amazing man, an amazing husband, an amazing father,” she adds.
April, 29, who runs her own business as an event planner and stylist, has never been married. And toward that end, for the first time in her life, April says she’s learning how to date, thanks to the show. “It makes so much more sense for me, and I think for everyone, to just become friends first and to develop a meaningful relationship outside of (romance).
But the romance has got to be there.” Both April and Rachel say along with finding the right man, they hope “3” offers positive messages.
April wants to convince young girls that nerds rule.
“A lot of the people I admire are really smart, and I think they consider themselves nerds,” she says. The party includes pizza, beer and wine, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Harley Helping Hands.
For Rachel, it’s a chance to show life goes on after tragedy. Join Rachel for a special viewing of the premier of “3” from 7 p.m.
CHICAGO (CBS) — “3” is the new CBS dating reality show that follows three women looking for true love, and two of the cast members are Chicagoans.
They tell CBS 2’s Jim Williams that they’re actually learning a lot about dating from being on the series.
