Oh Lord is right....But...Buttafuco!!! What a LOSER! BIG TIME!! I thought of you when I watched the Amy Fisher Story Janet...because they said LONG ISLAND!! I was like...OMG...that's where my buddy lives!! I bet that was sooooome fiasco back then...huh?? Whoa baby... Di
Amy Fisher & Joey Butt.... So sick of them, was like a media circus during all of that and now with her new book out, they are dredging up all of this crap again!!
Yeah, N.Y. is cool and you never know who you may meet and on any given day.
I've met, in N.Y. Cher, of course (at some of Her signings - Right Jan)
Courtney Cox and the guy from the Counting Crows (I forget his name) in Central Park
Karen Black - who actually taped her appearence on a T.V. show in my cousins apartment in the Bronx. Paid him $2,000 and gave him a signed script.
Over the years, I've forgotten all that I've 'met' and just happened to bump into.
But living where I do on L.I. I am about an hour and a half from N.Y.C. and in the opposite direction I am about an hour and a half from the Hamptons.
During the summer you can catch a lot of celebs in the Hamptons.
There I've met Jerry Seinfeld - just walking along
Kim Bassinger & Alec(yum)Baldwin - they closed an entire store in order for them to shop alone in. *I was actually annoyed that I could not get in the store and do my own shopping and they, of course, would not say who was in there. Wasn't until their limo pulled up and they ran out, that I discovered why the store was 'closed' and for who.
Barbara Walters - she gave me a magazine that still had her address label printed on it. She was eating in a restaurant and reading her mag and when she was finished she was about to throw the mag out and offered it to me instead. It was Archetectual(sp?) Digest.
Other than L.I. not being a very Cher Friendly place, it is a cool place to live and grow up on.
To the west is N.Y.C. East is the Hamptons South are great Beaches North Shore has a lot of hills and expensive homes, Billy Joels sister lives somewhere on the North Shore.
It's easy to get anywhere. Trains to N.Y.C. Ferries to Connecticut Buses to N.J. (Atlantic City)
A lot of people always go 'away' for vacation. I say see what you have right here around you. Take a drive Upstate, you know that sort of thing. I know a lot of N.Y.ers who have never seen the Statue of Liberty!!??!! Go figure.
Wow, Thank God that this is under the 'Just Talking' folders, cause I really went off there for a bit.
The funniest was when my friend (LI one)Karen and I met Julia Roberts here in NY..now she's one of my alltime favorites ( I know Deb u don't like her??? How could u not like Julia! She rocks!)anyways..so we finally met her one day in the Village and u got it..I was afraid of her d**n dog! Was huge! LOL..so we screamed from across the street and my friggin friend was like my friend's afraid of ur dog! LOL..I was ready to die! LOL..she gave us big smile and waved! My ex boss in NYC saw her once on the subway even! How down to earth is she? LOL..my other co worker I used to work with in NY just spotted Paul Newman the other day..I have to say amongst the nicest I met (other than Cher of course)was def. Jerry Seinfeld.....so nice! and New year's own D Clark was really nice..we met him at a restaurant uptown once..and of course I Dream Of Jeannie's Barbara Eden..what a doll..one of the nicest most down to earth ppl I have ever met in my life! What a sweetie and she looks great..isn't she like 70 now! LOL...and my uncle Jeff was real lucky he met Sly Stallone when he used to work at FAO toys on 5th Ave. He was buying like a 6 ft stuffed animal! I wish I was there that day! he said he was the absolute nicest! I nearly killed my uncle for not getting me an autograph that day! LOL..and about 2 wks ago my NY friend Michelle ran into Kate Hudson coming out of a nail salon..BTW Di see raising helen? So good! I know u loved Providence show..told ya! Great right? def one of the best! oops but that's a CHER thread! LOL..Jan

Loved that Providence DVD Janet...IT ROCKED! Better than the DVD that is being sold in stores! This one..it has the "real magic"...ya know? She was in such a great, great mood! That was the key...and the audience...well they fed right into THAT BABY!! If anyone does not have the PROVIDENCE DVD from Kevin...you have got to get it! IT'S THE BEST!! Di
I know Di ...isn't it great ! Sheri M agreed!!!!!!!!!!! Def one of the BEST BEST BEST Cher shows I have seen! She was in rare form and sooooooooo good w/the crowd!!!!!!!! LOVED it..so far everyone I s/w that saw it lovvvvvvvvved it!
Love all your stories about your celeb encounters...lol, Jan your Julia Roberts' dog story is too funny! Hopefully I'll be up in NYC with you soon so I can join in on the fun...if only someone would hire me...
"Notting Hill" reminded me of Cher and Rob a tiny bit when I saw it. The whole famous girl liking regular guy and having a hard time dealing with the pressures...if only Cher and Rob had had a happy ending too...
isn't it adorable how her expressions are practically the same!
Awww u will definitely find something Megen..u got lots to offer some lucky employer out there! Job market is really bad..I know I have my BA in communications/broadcasting too but could not get foot in door ..that's how I got STUCK in boring insurance the last ga zillion yrs..but it's a job! Maybe temp until u find something..it leads to permanent a lot!!!!! Did u try cablevision? They're pretty big u know..look on their website maybe! It's a foot in the door! And FREE cable!
