WHO IS HE?
Rich grew up in Northern Wisconsin. He has MCS (Middle Child Syndrome) but is definitely his Mom's favorite. He worked very hard at not being noticed in school but always wanted to be on camera. Rich wanted to be a Talk Show Host since he was12. It was first seeing Rosie O'Donnell's show in 1997 that sparked this love and he hasn't stopped since. He attended UW-Milwaukee for college, which took him 5 years to get a Theatre Degree because he was busy ....socializing. Not knowing how to become a Host after college, Rich started hosting live trivia games in bars and restaurants around Milwaukee.
Then it happened.....he was asked to host his own show on Milwaukee Public Television in 2011. That show won an award!
Rich met his husband in 2012 and got married in 2014 in Hawaii (GO THERE NOW). 2015 took them to Maryland for his husband's job and that meant not having a job for Richard. He started a fashion truck that ran until 2016 AND TRWS began on August 29th. They moved to Texas in September, 2017 where TRWS began filming in December from a home studio.
On April 14, 2018, the show began filming in front of a live studio audience at Bexar Stage in San Antonio.
