The Crossroads star reveals her Boomkat bandmate brother slept through his alarm and failed to make the soundcheck on time, which upset Manning and led to a nightmare TV performance.
She tells BlogTalkRadio.com, “It was our first time on Jay Leno and when you do Jay Leno you do a daytime dress rehearsal to make sure the sound is alright for your performance. My brother’s alarm didn’t go off and he was down in San Diego, so he didn’t come to the dress rehearsal portion of Jay Leno.
“Leno came storming into my dressing room and basically was like, ‘What’s going on? I’m hearing a band member missing?’ I’m like, ‘I’m so sorry. I’m so worried about my brother. I can’t get a hold of him. It’s terrible,’ and he’s like, ‘Yes, this is terrible.’
“In the nick of time my brother shows up for the performance but I was out of sorts and devastated and it wasn’t our best performance. Jay Leno has never really had me back. It could just be a coincidence that I haven’t had the right project but that’s always bothered me, even to this day.”
