Ever meet someone famous?

Recommended Posts

Oh Abbie- I've met Jason Seahorn too. My old softball coach was his godfather. He played football at a small community college in CA and I played softball there. He bought our team our warm ups and all new Nike cleats. Woohoo- I have cleats bought by Jason Seahorn. haha

I have met a few famous people- I know all the Pros on Dancing with the Stars. I have a pic w/ Cheryl Burke. She is bitchy though!

 

when Nomar Garciapara was on the Sox i met him, I pushed little kids aside and yelled that I wanted to have his baby so that he would give me his autograph! Lol! It was kinda funny- I embarrassed my BFF!

 

My FI has met Elaine from Sienfelds boyfriend on the show....What the hell is his name. Stucky or something? They were in Newport RI and saw him at a bar, then he joined them on a bar crawl! Weird!

The only “famous†people I can really say that Iâ€ve met other than just a brief look, were Troy Garity and his dad Tom Hayden (Jane Fondaâ€s ex and son). Troy (also a Samohi alumni) was very close to my older brother. Tom was even a coach on their little league team. My brothers were always stuck watching me so Iâ€d always tag along with them or he would be at my house mixing (my broâ€s were DJâ€s), I even remember dancing w/ him at my broâ€s 18th birthday party, he had to get on his knees to dance, I was only 11. My bro and him even got arrested together for “taggingâ€, he and his friends pulled off the senior prank. Anyhow my brother lost touch with him after he moved to NY. Troy came out in the Barber Shop movies, Soldierâ€s Girl, Bandits. My mom worked with Tom Hayden when he was a senator for a district here in LA. He is such a sweet person. When we were attending my brotherâ€s murder trial, Tom attended as often as he could. I know his presence helped to prosecute the murderers.

Like Christine, Iâ€ve bumped into a few celebrities. Iâ€ve met some celebrities at previous jobs, Daisy Fuentes, Serena Williams, Sarah Lancaster (Chuck, Saved by the Bell-The New Class), Luke Wilson, Bobby Trendy (Ana Nicole show), Mexicanâ€s celebrities Kalimba, Monica Naranjo. In my clubbing days, I had a chance to meet Warren G, lol, donâ€t ask.

My bro and SIL came out on an episode of TV Guideâ€s Ready, Set, Change so I had a chance to meet the Host, Rosana Tavarez. My SIL worked in the entertainment industry so she and my bro have met a ton of celebrities. She worked on the set of movies like the Titans, Pearl Harbor (yes spent about a month in Hawaii w/ Ben Affleck!), Halle Berry (remember the time she was Punked and her boob pooped out, my SIL comes out in the background). My bro and SIL had dinner with Marc Anthony and his ex Dayanara Torres (it was a group dinner).

Any how, I can go on. Living in LA, having a mom who works for TV Guide, a SIL who worked for Disney and Warner Bros, Iâ€ve had some encounters. I do get star struck, I try not to, but I do.

Okay I would take back everyone I've ever met to trade places with you that night!!! OMG Damian Marley, he's on the top of my sexy list....yummy wink.gif

When I was 8, Diana Ross called me up on stage with her at one of her concerts. I danced the running man with her and she gave me a big hug and kiss and called me "a little Diana Ross"

 

My BF is a major Bone-Thugs N harmony fan...(not me so much) so I got dragged to a concert with her. One of the guys invited us to the club with them after the concert and we hung out in VIP with them all night. Then they took us to breakfast at like 3am.

 

I've also met Jason Terry (Mavs), he sent me and my friend drinks all night at a lounge. He's pretty cool.

 

Other Random People:

 

Paris Hilton (at a bar in Vegas)

Nicole Richie (at Nobu in Vegas)

Ian Ziering from 90210

Mike Tyson

Forgot about another moment.....

 

The DJ from Dee-Lite was going to be DJ'ing at a club in Upstate NY where I lived at the time. I got volunteered to go pick him up in NYC. When I got there it was him (DJ Dmitry), Lady Kier and the Japanese guy Towa Tei (?). The 4 of us rode up the Thruway together and hung out after the event. Lots of fun that was.

OMG! I totally forgot this one. I was working a concert for the Wailers, Bob Marley's band. One of them kept trying to make out with me and the rest of the girls on my staff! He was handsy to say the least. I had to end up pulling all of my girls and only sending male staff backstage and to the green rooms!

Ooooh...if you count Jason Kidd as famous I totally know him. He is a family friend, my dad was his youth soccer coach. We don't see the family much anymore since his dad died. My brother ran into JK in Vegas and he was like "get your dad on the phone" so he called my dad, it was cute :)
