Hosted by

Leslie Shapiro Joyal is an LA native who has spent two decades making high quality, locally sourced, minimalist furniture. Then she decided to participate in Ellen’s Design Challenge, a new HGTV reality show produced by Ellen DeGeneres. Was it worth it?

Shapiro Joyal describes what it was like to be subjected to the “surreal” world of reality TV -- where everything you say or do can be misrepresented.
