I am a Celebra-whore!

I have a problem.

I admit it....I am somewhat of a "Celebrity Whore". I read all those junk magazines...you know the ones...US Weekly, People, etc....

I also religously check out Perez Hilton everyday to get my up to the minute celebrity gossip.

Whenever we go to Las Vegas I am alway walking around with my eyes peeled hoping to "see" someone.

Now don't get me wrong. I am not a crazy person. I really just want to "see" people.....I rarely go up to anyone to take a picture or ask for an autograph.

Since being in Los Angeles, I have to admit, I have been a little disappointed. I expected it to be the mecca of all celebrity sightings....especially, since Jersey Boys is such a huge show. I sit at a merchandise booth that overlooks the main entrance. So I basically just stare at the doors the whole time waiting for someone fun to come in.

Sure....there have been some random people here and there. Dustin Hoffman was at the show about a week ago. But where are the Brad Pitts? The John Mayers? The David Beckhams? Don't they like musicals too?!?!?

Here is my other thing. I get really excited about totally random celebrities. Angelina Jolie could walk by me and I would just shrug my shoulders. But if Nicole Richie came in...whew...I would probably pee my pants.

I LOVE the show Felicity. If Felicity is on TV I will watch the repeat no matter how many times I have seen it. Last night was one of my random celebrity moments. Greg Grunberg (who is currently on the show heroes and was also on Felicity) was at the show last night. Eric is obsessed with Heroes....so I knew that I had to tell Greg to come backstage. At intermission I was walking around selling programs and I saw him. I knew I had to say something.

Greg was possibily the nicest person I had ever met. He was so kind and so excited about the show. I asked him if he would mind going backstage after as the cast would love to meet him. He was so exited! His answer: "I would be HONORED to go backstage".


I had to include this one for Heroes fans. On the show Greg reads minds. During the second act Eric was saying "If he comes backstage I am totally going to make a comment about him reading my mind". I told him he was a dork and we moved on. When we were taking the picture, Greg actually turned to Eric and said..."Ok, lets take a picture of me reading your mind". I think Eric's heart may have skipped a beat just a little..


Here are just a few other random pics....

Eric and some of the cast of Jersey Boys with Paul Stanley from KISS

With Camryn Mainheim

With Julie Haggerty from Airplane! "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley"

Eric with Garry Marshall

So...if anyone knows Nicole Richie....give her my number. I would love to give her a baby shower present!

Sarah I feel you on this! I did the same thing when I was in NYC and LA last year!

My FI works PT for a radio station here so we get to meet so awesome bands. I think it's the most excitement I'll really ever see celeb wise!

I'm such a celeb whore too. I would be the same way if I was EVER in L.A.! You've had some pretty cool sightings though...much more than many people can say!

I check Perez about 40,000 times a day.

I bet you're as good at spotting celebs as you are at spotting knotties on the street!! :)

Wahooo...look at the people you have met. I must be the only person in the world that has never seen a celebrity in person...no matter how many times I am in LA/Hollywood/etc area I never see anyone! My parents saw Cuba Gooding Jr at Hard Rock once.

the only celebrity I have ever seen up close is "Booger." he came through my check out line when I was a cashier at Westborn Market. So, you are doing a lot better than me!!

If you are considering a whole house system also requires price comparison. Hire a plumber to use this tool to remove the sediment from your water heater. And what made the cataracts really stand out was that they were "anterior cataracts" which formed further within the eye than normal cataracts which formed near the lens surface. You'll purchase a panel from the corporate to match your kitchen unit.
