I couple of years ago I was in Las Vegas at the Forum Shops at Caesars. There in front of the sports memorabilia stores was Pete Rose signing autographs. The sign said for free but what you had to do is go into the store and buy a baseball or poster for him to sign. The cheapest thing for him to sign was like $75.00

Fast forward one year. I'm with my son walking through the shops and we see Peter Mayhew "Chewbacca" signing autographs except no one was. He looked lonely at the table. I told my son the Pete Rose story and when we walk around the corner, there is Pete Rose signing autographs at the memorabilia store again. Both times people were lined up getting there pictures taken and autographs.

Hmmmmmmm.... I've met alot.


Donald Trump- I was picked out of a crowd of over 50,000 people at one of my Dad's real estate conventions to speak with the Donald, he heard my business ideas and said he was sure that I'm going to be a "Big success someday" and that I am a "terrific young man."

I didn't realize until last night that a man I'm in contact with a lot is quite famous. Carrie Aidele is the owner of a small theather down the street from me, and my brother has been one of the few helping to get the place going for years, with Carrie as his boss. Carrie has been in multiple TV shows, including the dad of Amanda Bynes in Moody's Point on the Amanda Show, and the dad of the kid whose dog gets eaten near the end of The Lost World Jurassic Park. It's just weird, that this is the guy that my mom babysits for, my brother works with, and I see around a lot. Just last night he was showing us to our seats at a comedy show at the theater.


It's weird/neat.

When I was working as a bartender, I met a lot of sports celebs. One of the coolest was Greg Maddux who came in by himself one night while waiting for his friends. We had a pretty simple conversation about something on tv. I didn't even know who it was until he got up to go to the bathroom and a bunch of baseball fans sitting nearby told me it was Maddux. He was really considerate of the fans, and talked for a bit with the kids. When his friends showed up, they kept calling him dog and acting like little schoolgirls.


While working behind a bar most pro athletes are rude and extremely poor tippers, when they tip at all.


The celebrity I still get the biggest kick out of seeing is Dick Knoebel ride around in his golf cart, every time I go to Knoebels.

Last Saturday I was on a plane with Joe Clark. In 1979 Joe clark became Prime Minister of Canada (although for on 9 months). In subsequent Governments he was External Affairs Minister.


He and his wife Maureen were returning from a week's vacation in Hilton Head, SC. I was at the same island and we were on a flight from Atlanta to Toronto.

I met Tatum O'Neal in 2001. They were filming a movie near my hometown and I was in it. I even got to go into her trailer! I'd do it again!


You may remember Tatum O'Neal as the original Amamanda on the Bad News Bears.


Lacey Chabert, she played Grechen on Mean Girls, was also in the movie. Sadly I didn't get to meet her. I wish I would have meet her!





She wrote something in Sharpie, you may not be able to see it, but this is what she said:

"Dear Tatum, I love your name" From Tatum O'Neal


Tatum meet Tatum! Thanks for sharing your Jelly Bellys! I had so much fun!

Fergie: Downtown-Pittsburgh, PA - May 22, 2007: while I was walking to work..I saw her Bright Pink "The Dutchess" tour bus parked. I saw...I guess it was stage crew loading huge speakers on the back of the bus. I kept walking until I saw a crowd of people (about 20-30) screaming and taking pictures, so I ran over there (dropping my laptop in the progress) to at least see her. Somehow I got smashed in between a few people and was pushed to the front. I realized I was right next to Fergie and just stood there, because you don't meet stars everyday you know. I gave her a hug, (I just happened to have her CD in my laptop bag) So I got it signed...I was 25 minutes late to work that day lol!


There are a few more but that all I can remember.

-Ben Affleck..my dad's cousin's family is friends with his family, got his autograph in 2005 when I was at a family reunion and they asked him to come.


The way they are is just plain wierd. The bought his grandfathers house and moved into it, and they got to know his family, as well as him. They have his grandfathers ashes on their mantle..I dont know how they got them exactly, but its realy wierd IMO.


-Tom Cruise and Dakota Fanning I've seen..I was an extra in War of The Worlds when it was flmed about 45 minutes from my house in December of 2004. I thought it would be realy cool to be able to say I was in a movie, but it really wasnt that big of a deal, and it wasnt fun at all. 1000 people were able to be extras and we had to stay up from 8pm to 6am for 2 nights, some people for 3, it was really bad.

Yeah, being an extra is hit or miss. I did it a couple times back in the early-mid 90's. I hung out with Tom Berenger on the set of The Substitute, and was an extra on the set of Striptease with Demi Moore. For Striptease, I'm in the background of several shots, and had it not been for an idiot P.A., I would've been in the place of the Asian guy in the opening sequence. Had that happened, I could forever say, "I was once between Demi Moore's legs."


As for the rest of the celebs, etc., the list is too long to mention. There's one in particular who's in the spotlight right now though....Jason Taylor.

Back in 2001, I was working for a yacht brokerage, and tried to sell he and his wife a private yacht. I helped take them out for sea trials and stayed in contact for about a week as we attempted to wine and dine them into the deal. Unfortunately, another broker weaseled his way in, and the deal fell through in the 11th hour. Missed a nice commision on that one, but I'm still a fan. They're both REALLY nice people.
