I was reading Tina’s blog today and at the end she asked if anyone has ever met a celebrity. And it got me thinking, who have my readers met? Or just ran into while out and about. I’ll share first:
–Ice-T: And Coco. I was behind them in line (check-in and security so they probably thought I was stalking them. I wasn’t, I swear) at the Phoenix airport a few years ago. No one really bothered them, but I’m not sure that I would run up to Ice-T for a picture either.
–Pauly Shore: Bryan and I stayed at the same hotel (it was the Marquis Los Cabos in case you need to know that info) as Pauly Shore in Cabo. We saw him at the pool everyday and at the restaurants at night. Totally nice guy. No one at the hotel bothered him at all. But, we saw him again at the airport and everyone wanted their picture with him. You could tell he was a little annoyed, but he took pictures and sign autographs with every single person that asked. And FYI:, he wears speedo like swim trunks.
–Kid Rock: Living where I live, who hasn’t met him at least once? I’ve run into him on several occasions, but my all time favorite was before one of his shows in East Lansing, MI. He was playing at a small club (there couldn’t have been more than 50-100 people there), just before he got huge. Before the show, he was hanging out in the bar area and playing pool with Johnny Spirit, who was in full body paint.
–Robin Williams: I personally have never met him, but he came to visit the troops while B was serving in Afghanistan. B said he was very nice and really anyone who goes and visits the troops at war gets a thumbs up from me!
–Chris Chelios: Does anyone else know who he is or do you have to be a hockey fan? Anyways, I have ran into him at the bar a few times and he was on our flight to Las Vegas back in March. He flew First Class and so did B. Had B been sitting next to him, I would have made him switch with me (I sat it in the back with all the other “second class” people). He seemed like an okay guy, except he left his trash on his seat by the gate at the airport and I hate when people (famous or not) can’t pick up their trash and walk it two feet to the garbage can.
That’s all I can think of for now. I also waited on a few celebs back in my waitressing days and have come across a some local professional athletes shopping and at restaurants. So who have you met? I know two of my readers ran into Britney Spears!!! I can’t wait to hear!!
