Okay, since some of you are new to my blog, I thought it would be fun to play a little game. I tell you about my brushes with fame. You tell me about yours. It will be like the blog world's version of 6 degrees of separation...scratch that, 6 degrees of Kevin Bacon.
I am going to do this by age order. (Don't worry this will be really short.)
Okay, so in 1991 my bff at the time Kate Digilormo lived next door to the Guier family. Well, Adam Guier was cast in the movie, The Pistol. It was about Pistol Pete Maravich. I think it was like a Rudy type story. To be honest, I cannot for the life of my remember what the movie was about other than basketball, but it was my first brush with fame. I was hooked for life.
1993 - Saw Luke Perry at the Alamo in San Antonio. This was at the height of his 90210 fame...only problem is that while calling his name (and calling him Dylan) we laughed and said there was no way that was really him. Next day on the radio it was reported he was there taping 8 Seconds. So, again...only a brush with fame.
1996 - We were lucky enough to go to the Olympics in Atlanta in '96 and sitting in our section was Bruce Willis, Demi Moore and fam. The funny thing is, I didn't even notice, but my sister did. (At the time she was in middle school.) Demi Moore had shaved her head for GI Jane. I still to this day don't know how my sister noticed...
2004- I sat in the front row at the Oprah Winfrey show. Show = total bust. Recap show that was taped right after her Favorite Things show. Anyway, Oprah is much, much thinner in person and wasn't what I expected. (Side note, on this trip we went to have drinks at the Hancock Tower and two girls went down to the lobby while Janie and I paid our tab. While in the lobby the other two members of our party met none other than Jerry Springer. Rave reviews on him!)
2006 - Shopped next to Garth Brooks at Williams Sonoma here in Tulsa. Since I didn't want to make him a circus freak, I just pretended to I was really interested in the rice cookers. I have heard nothing but wonderful things about how gracious and friendly he is. Next time I may ask him for a picture.
Okay, so that is really it for me. Other fun facts:
1- My cousin was one of the guys dressed up like Eminiem in his Real Slim Shady video.
2- One my high school classmate's dad is Frank Abagnale, who was the main character in Catch Me if You Can (with Leo DiCaprio).
3- My friend Mindy is friends with Ed (Jillian's ex-fiance) from the Bachelor. She also recently met Joey from the Real World.
4- My friend Janie volunteers at Texas Children's Hospital with Shannon of Bachelor Season 1 Alex Michel.
I need details, people. Fill me in on every last thing! Dying!!!
PS - I am too lazy to proof this, so I apologize for any errors. I hope the grammar police don't come out.
