@retreadbride: No. Donald was at a private dinner party  at Club 33.  It’s a super-secret, exclusive club inside Disneyland (it’s a gourmet restaurant and they serve booze. yay!).  He just happened to be seated with us.

@kala_way: I know, right?  You can’t throw a rock without hitting an Industry person in the head. My yoga class at one point was basically the entire cast of the WB. lol

Wow a lot of people have met a lot of celebs!

I met Henry Winkler twice (aka The Fonz) and I met Ron Howard….I also met the Olsen Twins when I was about 9 years old at a water park in California.

@GreenEyedMoon: I grew up in Minnesota and we were huge Twins fans! Kirby Puckett was my favorite player as a jud.

Most of the famous people I’ve seen have been in Las Vegas–Eva Longoria, Hulk Kogan, Hugh Hefner, all the old Girls Next Door, Andre Agassi and Stefi Graff. We also snuck into Perez Hilton’s VIP area in Vegas to get a picture with him, I remember we got in trouble for that one!

Random:  Gwen Stefani guite a few years ago. She was sitting nearby at a restaurant in LA.

I also saw Martin Lawrence walking around in LA.

One I actually talked too: Richard Burgi (Karl, the lawyer in Desperate Housewives). Last year, me and hubby were at a breakfast place in Corona del Mar, CA and he saw a old school friend so he started talking to her. She was with this guy and introduced us and being a big DH fan I immediately recognized him. I guess I got a little nervous because he talked to me and as I went to reply, I drank my OJ at the same time and kinda spit it all over my dress (?!). Embarassing…

@MrsRuby: We may have gone to all the same shows in high school. I think I went to see almost all of those bands! My music tastes have changed a lot since then–I haven’t thought about most of those bands in forever. I do remember that the guys in Mest signed the shirt I was wearing at their show, and I treasured that shirt so much afterwards, haha.

I worked at Sephora 5th Avenue when I live in NYC.  I helped Talisa Soto (Benjamin Bratt’s wife) find all of her makeup and didnt even realize who she was until she left! (Her husband ALWAYS came with her and checked out colognes, then sat on the outside steps!) They are such a wonderful couple and she was a DOLL!

I saw Julia Stiles in SOHO while I was walking home from work one night. She was trying to find her keys in her purse to get into her apartment. We made eye contact and she has this look on her face like “Oh God, please dont ask me for my autograph, Im exausted”. I just smiled and kept walking!

same here. I dont listen to them much anymore but it always brings back good fun memories from my HS years 😀

I had begged my parents to let me go to a show but it was a weekday and they refused so instead I told my mom and dad I was spending the night with a friend and instead we drove straight to a show after school. We were there all night and made it back home in time to get one hour of sleep before school. we were wearing the same clothes as the day before and we were sweaty and nasty… it was pretty gross but I wouldnt trade that memory for the world. It was so fun. I would never dream of doing that now, how naive i was to put myself in a dangerous situation haha.
