If there's a such thing as 15 seconds of fame, Mt. Pleasant resident Mary Kennedy is enjoying every bit of it.

The bride-to-be is set to appear on CBS game show The Price is Right, Wednesday morning.

Kennedy says the idea came about while on a trip visiting her fiance's family.

"His grandmother, she was the one who watches it everyday," she said.

But it wasn't until speaking with her fiance's father, who had dreams of being a part of a live television taping, that Kennedy decided to act.  

"It was surprisingly not that difficult. Tickets are free."

The bidding, as she recalled, not so easy.

"One of the bids was for designer handbags, and they don't tell you who the designer is," she said.

"Is it Louis Vuitton or is it Tory Burch? There's a little bit of a price difference."

Kennedy will make her national television debut on The Price is Right Wednesday morning on Live 5 News.  

"Just being able to share that moment with [my fiances] grandma who watches it," she said.

"It's overwhelming."
