    A Day In The Life Of A Morning Talk Show Host

    Meet Honey Berry, the star of Univision’s “Despierta América” as she gives us an inside peek at her amazing, crazy job.

    My assistant wakes me up in the morning bright and early...

    Just because I love my job doesn't mean the process is any easier...

    Once, I get up, I find my makeup artist ASAP so no one else has to see this face.

    I then eat a sensible, energy-filled meal for breakfast.

    I like to get my morning workout in early before the real craziness begins.

    I then clean myself up, no matter how much I hate it and try to hide.

    Meeting time comes up fast.

    David Canton / Univision

    It's very important to thoroughly research my guest (in this case, my namesake) before I do my interview.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    I'm not a coffee drinker so it's very difficult to stay awake in that morning meeting.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    It's important that I stay on top of my game, though: I often have to fight for the best interviews.

    Univison

    I always win.

    David Canton / Univision

    Almost showtime! I have to tweet to all my fans to remind them to tune in!

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    Last but certainly not least, I have to glance over the rundown one last time to see what's coming up.

    It's showtime! All the guests come on for me.

    It's important for me to act cool and collected around celebs, but let's be real: I wanted to pee all down her leg the entire time.

    A good way to put your guest at ease is to do some playful moves. A roll on the back shows the guests you are open and honest.

    See how well that worked with Matt Damon?

    The benefit of being cute and furry is that I can kiss whoever I want.

    During commercials, I usually get a treat.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    When I'm lucky, I can take a quick power nap.

    David Canton / Univision

    Most of the time, though, I get feedback from the director.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    Back to the show!

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    My job is awesome because one day, I'll show everyone how to celebrate their birthday.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    And then the next, I'll get a check-up!

    And then out of the blue, I sometimes meet a strange baby.

    My favorite days are the ones that end with a dance party.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    After the show, I typically decompress in my robe under a table where no one will bother me.

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    It's a rough life being a TV star...

    Ana Patricia Gonzalez / Univision

    But somebody's gotta do it.
