So I got to go on stage with David Copperfield. It was like a childhood dream come true. The entire day before my Dad and I went, I was dancing around singing “it’s David Copperfield Day!” like I was 6 when I was 26.

When I worked at the restaurant with the orange shorts, I waited on Lynard Skynard, but I didn’t ask for an autograph or anything because I thought they should be able to eat; however, I was freaking out on the inside because I love them.

When I was in Aspen, I saw Cher walk by. I met Ron Jeremy at a local party where he was the special guest. He was very nice, but very touchy.

I met James Blunt when I was 17 downtown Vancouver. He was fairly drunk and even had a couple of beer cans in his pants! He actually grabbed me and kissed me when I asked to get a photo with him (I highly doubt he realized how young I was!).

I’ve also met and spoken with Stephen Lewis (the former UN Embassador for the coalition against HIV/AIDS in Africa) and he signed his book “Race Against Time” for me 🙂

A couple of years ago my friends and I were invited to a club “after party” and it turned out to be for Swollen Members so we got to hang out with those guys for the evening!

Also, I met Pamela Anderson while I working in an office. I had to actually ask her for ID because it’s company policy…like duh as if I didn’t know who she was. She was really sweet and a lot shorter in person.

Nelly Furtado used to go to high school parties on Vancouver Island to sing. I’ve never met her, but a couple of my cousins used to hang out with her all the time when she was first starting to get her name out.

@TheFutureMcBride: I forgot about that, I got on Copperfield’s show too. He came backstage and gave us authographs afterwards. Some of the other women hugged and kissed him, I wanted to also but I was just a shy 23 year old at the time, so I just politely shook his hand and mumbled something incoherent 🙂

I met Matt Ryan (Falcons QB) because he was sitting next to me in first class on a plane to Vegas.   He was so nice and down to earth – shocking that he is younger than I am!  He may not “count” as a celeb to most – but I’d much rather meet an athlete than an actor:)

Uhm lets see I’ve been less than two feet away from: Jessica Simpson, Jaime Foxx, Sean William Scott, and Johnny Knoxville.

I swear Nick Cannon and I had a moment but to this day I have no idea if he was waving at me or not. Also a bunch of TRL hosts.

I’ve never met any big celebrities, but Mr. Starfish sees celebs all the time due to where he works. He just saw Bobby Brown two days ago.

Kim Kardashian, in Vegas, long before she was famous.  I remember she was freaking short and she had a gold Louis Vuitton mirror bag.  Huge bag.  I recognized her because she had a small blurb when Paris was popular.  She was nice then though.

@picturemeurs: Haha, TRL hosts. Me too. Standing outside the Times Square studios in my Catholic high school uniform.

I saw Kelly Rutherford this past weekend actually (Lily van der Woodsen from Gossip Girl). I once saw David Hyde Pierce (from Frasier) eating dinner at a restaurant in NYC at the same time that Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes were dining together a few table away.  I apparently sat next to Will Ferrell on the NYC subway but didnt know it until he got off and my friend screamed at me. I also passed by Claire Danes shopping in New York too.

My favorite band is Lady Antebellum, I was lucky enough to meet them twice. I met them before they were famous and after. I’ve also met Carlos Mencia, Jeff Dunham, Jack Ingram and Ashton Shepard

When I was a freshman in college, Black Eyed Peas were the opening act for a concert my school put on every year the first Friday (to keep kids from going to the huge party at an off-campus apartment complex). Well, everyone just goes to the huge party afterwards….including the Black Eyed Peas! This was before they were really famous, the only song that had been a hit was the one with Justin. But yeah, my first Friday night of freshman year I saw Will.I.Am doing a kegstand. Kind of hard for the rest of my year to live up to that. 

I had a class with Brady Quinn (Broncos QB), so ogled him quite a bit. 

Saw Ed Helms (Andy from the Office) at a banjo concert in New York City. 

I’ve also met Alex Trebek.

Living in Ohio not many, more sports stars than anything…

I met Dustin Diamond after a Comedy show (Screech from saved by the bell).  He was hysterical!

John the Cowboy from The Real World LA (the first one from the 90’s)  he was in line in front of me for 2 hours at King’s Island!  Nicest guy EVER!!!

Rob Lowe and his Dad – I used to work at a Real Estate Title Company here in Dayton and he bough his Dad a condo in the area and had to come sign the closing papers.  Very quiet and standoffish but had AMAZING clothes!

I’ve met a few of the Cincinnati Bengals in the bars in downtown Cinci – Chad Ochocinco (very nice), Chris Henry (RIP), TJ Houshmanzadeh (before he left us!!) and Carson Palmer, though I met him at a charity party.

Kirk Herbstreit – Sportscastor for ESPN – He went to my HS (though graduated before my time) but he is a good friend of our family’s and swears he’ll turn my 5 year old nephew into a quarterback.  He also has neices that danced on the dance team I coached so he would come to competitions a lot.

Ken Griffey, Jr. when he was a Red.  He lived in my hometown and I saw him everywhere though never met him,

I went to HS with a few Pro NFL players – Mike Nugent graduated with me – no comment.  AJ Hawk was the year behind me and rode my bus for years – such a sweet guy!  I was also able to meet Nick Mangold through AJ.

Met Doug Floutie in passing after a football game

Got to work with a few big choreographers from SYTYCD and so on..Mia Michaels, Laurie Ann Gibson, Chris Judd, Dave Scott, Shane Sparks, Wade Robson.

Musically, I met the guys from Muse after a small show in 2004 and had quite a few drinks with Josh Todd (lead Singer of Buckcherry) and his wife Mitzi (she was the dark haired lead alien from Dude Where’s my Car?)

Also, Courtney Reagan (CNBC/MSNBC Reporter-she does the Market updates) graduated with me and we are still in touch.  She is truely one of the most amazing people I’ve ever met.

And I’ve just realized I’ve met more than I thought!  Sorry so long!!!!!
