I am seriously shaking right now. . . . .I can hardly type.
I don't even know where to begin with this. . . . .
My mind is frozen solid. . . .
I guess I'll just start from the beginiing. . . .
First off, Keyhole TV chooses today (TODAY!!!!) to decide to be all choppy and disagreeable. . .I had so much trouble watching the program today. And it is nothing less than tragic because
1) It's never given me this much trouble before and
2) Something very crucial happened on the TV program I watched
So I'm watching this variety show that the twins guest starred on (no less than 15 minutes ago), and they're sitting there in their Ouran uniforms looking as cute as ever. And I'm thinking that maybe they're just going to be interviewed and asked a few questions about themselves and the Ouran movie.
I couldn't have been more wrong. . .
Nothing could have prepared me for this. . .
Basically, prior to filming for this show, apparently a camera crew was given the "okay" to follow the twins to their hometown of Nagoya.
First they just went around showing different famous landmarks and places in Nagoya which was pretty cool. And then. . .
Then the camera goes up to this huge Western style building with large iron gates and it actually looks like a big, fancy hotel. . .and at this point, it suddenly dawns on me that the building looks very familiar. . .
The camera suddenly pans over to a doorbell/intercom that was the letters 'TAKAGI' engraved over it.
The iron gates are opened, and the twins (looking drop dead gorgeous) walk out and welcome the crew.
Then I realize. . .the huge, fancy looking building is NOT a hotel. . . .
That's right. . .IT'S THE TAKAGI FAMILY RESIDENCE!!!!
The very house that the twins lived at before moving to Tokyo and frequently visit when they have breaks. Our boys. . .Manpei and Shinpei. . .lived in not a house, but a mansion. . .
So all those suspicions we had before. . .on why they dress so well, and noticing that when they take pictures inside their parents house, that the rooms look unusually large and the items look particularly pricey, or how they were able to afford that huge apartment they currently share, or why and how their family has so many freaking dogs. . .we most definitely have our answer now. . .
Keyhole kept freezing and stalling and I could seriously just cry because I know I missed out on a lot of what was filmed, but yeah, that house is freaking huge.
For anyone who has ever watched "MTV Cribs" this looked EXACTLY like that.
For a minute I was just LITTLE doubtful that it was actually their house, but as the twins walked around and gave a tour of the lovely home. . .I instantly recognized the rooms from the pictures I've seen in their blogs: huge fire places, huge kitchen and living room, high ceilings, a bunch of elaborate water fountains outside in the courtyard (A COURTYARD!!!!), giant flat screen TV's, expensive pieces of art and the twins even showed the room that they shared before they moved to Tokyo. . . .oh yeah, and did I mention the 3 luxury cars that were parked inside the attached garage. . .?
It was just amazing. . .I literally just kept saying "Oh my God. . . .OH MY GOD!! OH. . . MY. . .GOD!!!!"
So yeah, they gave a tour of this ridiculously huge mansion (I missed a lot of it because of the crappy connection) but yeah, basically the Takagi family is apparently extremely wealthy, as we thought.
Jeez, no wonder they love going home so much!!!
I sincerly hope that these episodes are put online and available for viewing later, because this is truly something you'd have to see to believe.
I can't imagine how the twins would have any trouble portraying filthy rich characters on Ouran. . .they ARE filthy rich!
To be fair though, the twins really don't seem to be spoiled or "snooty" based on their family's wealth. And they actually seemed kind of shy and hesitant to show the cameras the Takagi home.
Yeah, I'm still in total and complete shock. . .and I STILL can't believe that of all the times I watched Keyhole with no problem, it chose TODAY to mess up. . .
Ah well, the show just ended and they didn't interview the twins anymore, and I have to get ready for school now anyway so. . .I'm dying to hear everyone's questions and comments. . .I'll be back later. *To myself "I seriously thought that place was a hotel. . . ." *
