“Since posting my video on Facebook, life has been pretty crazy. I've had a lot of really awesome experiences, and now I'm adding to that list by joining the TLC family,” said Payne. “I can't wait to share more videos, inspire more people and bring joy to someone's day with a little bit of laughter and fun.”
