1. What's your day job?
I'm an event coordinator, caterer, and owner of Victoria's Black Swan Inn
2. What do you do on The Russell Rush Haunted Tour?
I'm an investigator, historian, costume designer, Russell's fashion consultant, and team Mom.
3. What's your favorite past Haunted Tour investigation?
Victoria's Black Swan Inn of course!
4. Which fellow investigator scares you the most and why?
That's a toss up between Bobby and Angelka, because Bobby's always disappearing somewhere to sleep, and Angelka because she always forgets her equipment!
5. Who would you rather meet the ghost of Michael Jackson or Amy Winehouse? Why?
Oh, Amy Winehouse for sure. Cause I think she rocks and I wish my hair could do the beehive. AND, I loved her eyeliner.
6. If you were a ghost how would you haunt people?
That would depend on who I'm haunting! But I'd probably mess around in their kitchen, throw pots and pans, dump flour on the floor, you know, the usual.
7. What question do you get asked the most when people find out youíre involved with the Haunted Tour?
"Are there really ghosts?" Of course there are by the way...
8. Has a ghost ever followed you home after an investigation?
How would I know, I have so many at home! They'd just be one more in the crowd!
9. Which fellow investigator would you vote Most Likely To Wet Their Pants?
Bobby for sure! He's the best screamer anyway :)
10. Describe the scariest moment of your life?
Probably the time when I was in the kitchen at the Black Swan Inn and it felt like someone was running their hands up my thighs...way scarier than anything I've ever experienced ghost hunting!
The Magnolia Hotel, in my birthplace, Seguin Texas
This is really exciting! I am headed into Seguin, the place where I was born. Kinda cool and creepy at the same time… I can’t wait to get there though. I have heard some really interesting stuff about this old hotel. It was once a stage stop, was the landing place for the Pharmacist that served Seguin and New Braunfels. It seemed he was married to one woman but in love with another…He ended up trying to kill his wife but murdered a little girl by mistake. It seems he and the little girl are still around as well as a woman who kept a room to meet with her gentleman friends…Lots of stories about really aggressive spirits. It’s going to be quite the night.
Oh yesssss, My station is set up in the older part of the Hotel, it feels pretty comfortable and best of all it has ac!!!!! I not only have Command Center tonight, but I get to do some evoking of the spirits… This is gonna be awesome!
What the H----l I didn’t expect that to happen! That hurts!!!!
This place is kinda freaking me out. I am use to being around all sorts of activity, but this is really intense. I don’t feel so great about going down in the cellar. It doesn’t feel good at all….. I can’t wait to get back to Control Center….
What was that? Did you hear that? Does anyone hear what I hear?
This year on the Haunted Tour I have a new job….I am actually going to be manning Control Central! I will be watching the team as they investigate different areas of each location. I am responsible for keeping track of everyone, watching and noting any activity I see on camera as well logging times and events. This is a very cool position to be in. I don’t have to crawl under, through or jump over any dirty, funky, scary stuff….On the other hand I am all ALONE! No one is watching me or there when the knocking, heavy breathing or voices are all around me….
Well it’s time to head over to the Red Berry Mansion. I have been here numerous times for all sorts of events. My favorite was a step back in time during the Sticky Wickets event. It was like a scene from Gatsby, everyone is dressed in flowing tea gowns and hats and the gents are really dapper in their linen…Rumor has it that there are secret passages in the basement that people could use to escape a raid during the illegal games that were held here. There have also been rumors of missing people, scandalous affairs, and strange animal attacks on the grounds. This is going to be a very intense investigation. My first night at Control….this should be interesting.
Are you kidding me…I am going to be in the kitchen! I know I can cook, but really Russell, the kitchen? It’s HOT in here and there are 2 doors, and it’s going to be dark, really dark, and did I mention I am going to be all alone????? I was super excited about this investigation, but now, thanks to Daryl, I’m stuck in the kitchen….ugh, I should have known. Oh well at least I have the ice chests so I know someone has to come in every now and again to get a cold drink…
Lights out! Let the party begin….. did I say party? What is that insane noise? Can anyone hear that? I’m not afraid, I’m not afraid, I’m not….Ok who is that? No what is that? Geez this is going to be a long night……
