    Watching morning TV in your PJs may be ultra chill, but what happens behind the scenes of your favorite talk show most certainly is not. And because seeing is believing, we spent a day on set with Windy City LIVE's associate producer and modern-day Wonder Woman, Jessie Kalin.

Now, turn off the tube, click through, and get ready for one heck of a reality show.
