Celebrity encounters gossip week continues Pretty much everyone I know has had some brush with celebrity.
My sister danced with George Michael in London in the '80s and actually dated one of those weird Flock of Seagulls guys with the bad hair. My father did some renovations on Keith Richards' house. My husband interviewed Dr. Ruth and Dave Thomas of Wendy's fame; he dealt blackjack to Tommy Smothers in Reno. Me? Well, my sole brush with celebrity was an accident. Literally. I worked for a small weekly paper in Old Saybrook, Connecticut, more years ago than I want to remember, and our office was just a block up from the local grocery, where we'd get sandwiches for lunch. One day, I was talking to a friend, looking back at her as I pushed the door in at the grocery. I slammed the door right in an elderly woman's face. "Watch what you're doing!" she belted out in a raspy voice. I apologized, stepped aside to let her pass. And as she did, I realized whom I'd hit with the door. Katharine Hepburn. Katharine Hepburn yelled at me. That's my celebrity story. I oakley jupiter literally ran into football player Lyle Alzado at the Denver airport. I was like 14, not paying attention WHAM I hit a brick wall. He picked me up and set me aside with an "excuse me" and I just stared at him. I knew who he was because I had an autographed pic of him my 5th grade teacher had gotten for everyone in our class because she used to date him in college. This was the late 1980 Mickey, hot off 9 1/2 Weeks fame, all scruffy, smirky gorgeous man. Mmm. But he wasn nearly as scary as the persons he was with in Sturgis. The National President and Vice President of the Hells Angels. I think my favorite celebrity encounter was the day I took my kids to the Pan Pacific Park, definitely not one you expect to find a celebrity in in LA. I bought them ice cream. Lucy was about 2 and very strong willed which means I just let her eat her Dora on a stick and get messy and worry about cleaning her up later. Another mother at the park took one look and started taking pictures. I could tell she knew what she was doing so I stepped back so she could try and get the shot. As I was looking at her I thought, wow she doing the "Annie Hall" look. It was Diane Keaton herself photographing Lucy! My second favorite was the time our dog Dudley ran straight across the dog park and put his head in the lap of Jack Lemmon. I met Mary Tyler Moore at a party and a friend reported that some time in the evening he heard her break wind. He described it as an angels sigh that filled the room with the scent of lilacs. I literally bumped into Anthony Perkins in NY. But my favorite story was while in a hotel, eating alone, I struck up a conversation with another man eating alone and we ended up sharing a table talking about life spent in hotels, family, etc. I asked him what he did and he said he was a singer with the band. I knew John Mellencamp was in town so I guessed he sung backup. He asked if I like to come to the show that night as his guest. Not being a big fan of Mellencamp, and having to work in the morning, I begged off. The next day I read about the concert the night before. It wasn John Mellencamp. He was coming the following week. I had been talking to John Kay, lead singer of Steppenwolf and I loved Steppenwolf. Yes, I am still kicking myself. To keep the Keith Richards thread going, the drummer in our band once threw Mick and Keith out of Circus Circus. I had the priveledge of meeting Linus Pauling as a young student of Chemistry. It is the geek chemist equivelent of a seminary student getting to meet one of the apostles. Most people remember him as the crazy haired mad scientist that took mega doses of Vitamin C but he was one of two people to win two Nobel Prizes. The other was Marie Curie. Very cool. Not ladies oakley sunglasses quite as cool was the time as a 16 year old bus boy I spilled an entire glass of oakley sunglasses stores ice water down George McGovern wife blouse. He was less than impressed with me. She was really pissed. Before Mr. he thanked me for having the guts to arrest his daughter. It seems she been through similar situations, but always got away with he crime because of her famous father. He showed some real tough love and left his daughter in jail, hoping she get the help she so badly needed. That, I admired. It was a difficult decision for him to make. Sometimes, I wonder about the offer to appear on the TV show. Would there have been spin offs? Was TV Land ready for a new sheriff of Mayberry? We in an election year, so I turn to politics. In 1980, I accidentally stabbed President Carter son Chip in the hand with a Bic pen. He visited the radio station where I worked while stumping for his father during primary season and stuck his hand in my face while I was chatting on the phone with a client. I was flustered and forgot I was holding the pen. Jab! I surprised the SS agents didn wrestle me to the ground and confiscate my writing tool. A few years later I treated my mother to an American Ballet Theater performance at Lincoln Center. During an intermission we were strolling one of the upper levels.
I stuck white oakleys my head in a door, realized it was a private box and backed up in a hurry, bumping into someone behind me. I turned around, and said, "I so. OH MY GOD, I SO SORRY!".
