Geeze, where to begin....

Off the top of my head...

Amy Grant, Rosie O'donnel, Micheal Jackson, David Faustino, Nipsy Russel, J.J. Walker, Charles Robinson, Willie Nelson, Debra Gibson, various music, movie, and broadway stars, etc...

 

I lived in Vegas for 5 years and met too many celebs in my work to remember. (I can't divulge the circumstances, sorry.) Gibson I met backstage at a concert, I parked Amy Grant's car at Kennywood, I had a couple celebs live in the same building as me for a couple years, (condo/primary home for me, it was their vacation rentals... one of them a "friend".)

 

Now if I can only meet that one celeb that "discovers" me. LOL

Living where I live and working where I work, a whole fucking lot of them. Most of the time I don't really care and just sort of leave them alone. The only I've been starstruck was when I saw Johnny Depp DRESSED as Captain Jack on the studio lot in March. That was awesome.

When I was big into wrestling I met most of the major stars backstage after a Smackdown show (before they split into 2 groups). The guys are pretty normal.And oh so friendly. Hugs all around. My big fav star was Stone Cold Steve Austin! Big Show is friggin HUGE. His leg was bigger then my head.

 

I have met Bon Jovi back in 2002 when they were here in da burgh (star lake). Got to be on stage during their concert, and met them afterward.

 

Down where my mom lives in FL, I have been in restaurants with several stars. Judy and Jerry Scheindlin, Whoopi Goldberg, Garth Brooks, god it's too early to think of more. I didn't meet them persay, im sorry I just find that it's rude to interrupt their dinner, no one did it to me. lol

I met Richard Nixon..

 

Funny story on that one...thought I was going to get hauled away by the Secret Service..

 

Saw him at Radio City Music Hall. Was standing right behind him, he was sitting down, I was in the row of seats behind him. Some bratty kids came running up the aisle and knocked into me...where did I fall....right into Tricky Dicks lap...OMG talk about a scene...Never saw people move so fast on a 12 yo kid before. He took it well. Laughed it off. Signed my stuff. Asked me if I was ok. Gave me a hug. Asked one of the SS guys to walk me back to my seat and buy me a soda and candy..LOL..

 

I also met Micheal Eisner at WDW. He was a dick.

 

I know I met a few others, but I am drawing a blank right now.

I don't know why but this just cracked me up. I am just picturing Gregg as a Target cashier, first of all, but then having Luke Skywalker coming though the line....

 

I have met Belinda Carlisle (lead singer of the Go-Gos and my personal idol when I was a teenager), lots of pro baseball players, Luis and Gina from Sesame Street, a lot of "Surivivor" cast members including Rupert, Rob and Amber. I passed Davy Jones on the street during our city's Oktoberfest and he spoke to my daughter She was about 2 and could have cared less, I was freaking out. We met Marion Ross (Mrs. C. from Happy Days) this year at PKI. Can't think of anybody else at the moment...
