ABC’s “The View” films segment at Sanford’s Dairy Bar
Noted famous people Clay Aiken and Raven-Symone were at the Fairview Dairy Bar in Sanford on Wednesday morning to film a segment for ABC Television’s “The View.”
Steve Brewer, who owns the Dairy Bar, said the network reached out to him Tuesday evening and asked if Aiken, Symone and their crew could use the restaurant as a filming location to discuss North Carolina’s controversial House Bill 2 with patrons…
…Aiken and Symone declined to be interviewed, but before filming began Aiken could be heard explaining to Symone why he wanted to film in Sanford.
“This is Sanford, which is about 40 minutes outside of Raleigh,” he could be heard saying. “This place just sort of feels like a microcosm of the whole state…”
…Brewer seemed glad to have the company, regardless of the politics. He said he was surprised to hear from the TV crew.
“I asked them why they wanted to use my restaurant, and they told me because Clay really liked it,” Brewer said. “They said he said we had the best banana pudding around…”

Interesting day today. Got a visit from Raven-Symoné and Clay Aiken and their film crew. They were taping a segment for the TV show The View. This lasted about 3 hours this morning and was interesting to watch to say the least.
These folks were very nice and we appreciate them dropping in today.
Their interviews, etc. will air next Wednesday, June 29th.
You just never know who might walk in your doors…..
Even Raven took a “selfie” with Clay!
I am looking forward to seeing this special show on The View…on June 29th. (The date is not confirmed)
