    I met Sean John aka Puff Daddy a few years ago at the PR Day Parade in NYC, he was alright..seemed like he didnt want to be bothered but at least he let me take a pic with him and Mase. I also met Fat Joe at that same parade and last year I saw Fat Joe again at a club and he walked past me and I touched his belly (dont ask)..he gave me a look like "why did you just touch me"...LOL. Most recently FI and I saw Iced Tea at a parking garage in NYC...he gave one of those "whats up" nods to FI, he was nice and let a fan take his picture while in his beautiful car (for some reason i left my camera at home that night!!). I met Wendy Williams (radio show host) at Party City last year and I made small talk with her, she was cool. And also last year, we saw but didnt actually meet, the actor from "Everyone hates Chris" who plays the dad, he was at Build-a-Bear in NYC with his kids.

          If anyone likes/knows country music and has heard of Steve Holy (he sings "Brand New Girlfriend", "Good Morning Beautiful", etc.), I've met him a few times --- he's actually best friends with a very good friend of mine from Dallas, TX....Steve is a very sweet, very down to earth, humble guy --- excellent musician, entertainer, very very cute!!...and dripping with CHARISMA!..whoa!

          About 7 years ago when I met him for the first time at one of his shows, I was supposed to go to another show in York, PA the next weekend...I was sick that day and didn't make it -- when he got back home to Dallas and hooked up with my friend (whose name is also Steve), my friend asked him how the shows went...my friend said they went fine, "but where was Pen for the York show?"...my friend said he mentioned my name a few times that night at dinner, which he said was very unusual for him --- I was blown away...an opportunity missed?...maybe -- he's happily married now and they're expecting their first baby soon...great guy, and I'm so excited for them both!

                The famous person I had a run in with is pretty funny. It was country singer Billy Currington. It was at County Concert in Ft Laramie Ohio. My friend's family's company is one of the sponsors the event and we were back stage. We really did not go backstage too often cause we arn't starstruck and the stars where always doing the meet and greets anyways, but we had to go to the bathroom. Well, Billy Currington had gotten locked out of his van that was to take him back to his bus so they had gotten a golf cart to transport him. I was coming out of the nasty porta john and did not see them coming and stepped right into thier path (yes I was alittle drunk). I was soo embarressed but they kinda hit me. Luckily they were not going to fast but it still left a big briuse on my thigh. Well Billy jumped off the cart to make sure I was alright. He was the first one there cause it was right on his side. I was laughing so hard I was crying! He was soo nice. I did get my picture taken with him afterwards. It is in a box somewhere in my room. If I can find it I will scan it and post it on here later today.

                  I've met many bands but my faves were Linkin Park who I have met a bunch of times. I've also met Carson Daly. I'm sure there's more, I just have to think about it lol

                  Oh and I was in Queen Latifah's house without even knowing it was her's til a few weeks later

                    I use to work at a bar here in Stephenville. I would party with all the Texas Country artists. For those of you in Texas. Pat Green, Jason Boland, Cross Canadian Ragweed.
                    When I was in school my softball coach was Robert Conrad (James West from The original Wild Wild West). His daughter Kaja was a year younger than me in school.
                    There are a lot of famous people in Stephenville too from the Rodeo Circuit.
                    Jim Sharp, Ty Murray and his gf Jewel, Tuff Hedeman... They are all really cool. Jewel and Ty are super sweet. Jim and I use to go to the bar all the time together.
                    My mom is friends with a guy that drives tour buses and through him I met all of the band Godsmack (back stage) and Quiet Riot.
                    I met and danced with Gary Allen in high school. He did a fundraiser for us at our fairgrounds then came to a barn dance afterward. He is really shy.
                    Hmm I am sure I am forgetting a lot of people. OHHH Chris Ledoux right before he passed away brought my sister and I up on stage with him at a concert at Billy Bobs.
