Celebrities Aren’t Always Like They Seem On TV…

The other night at dinner, my family started talking about meeting celebrities; my cousin was just on a morning talk show and met a few politicians and appeared on TV!

Of course, this brought up my memories of being shunned by Michael C Hall in the Dallas airport in December of 2010.

Jerk face. 

I had to explain, again, how I almost ran into Michael C Hall, and he waved me off and turned his head, not even granting me a smile, a hello, nothing. 

Yes. I’m still bitter.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand that the man just went through a divorce, battled cancer, and was very possibly running to catch his flight.

But he could have at least waved “Hi.” I mean, we were literally 6 inches from each other when I met his eyes and gasped “Mr. Hall!”

Star struck, much?

Yeah, I can’t help it.

Anyway, I debated on cancelling Showtime because I was pretty upset with his lack of courtesy – I mean, I watched every episode of Six Feet Under – even when it started to totally suck and make no sense at all – to support him as an actor.

The least he could do for a fan is smile.


I’ve met other celebrities before. None as cool, or handsome in a serial-killer psychopath sort of way, but celebrities all the same.

When I was 5 or 6, my mom took me to see my dad while he was in the Army and seated next to us was a blonde chick dressed like a witch.

I don’t remember a lot of my childhood, but I sort of remember her – well, I remember a black hat and red plastic fingernails – she was super nice and actually took her fake fingernails off (they were cheapo plastic nails that wrapped around your fingertips) and gave them to me.

Kelli Maroney was an actress in the movie Night of the Comet, one of my favorite cheesy 80’s movies.

Super nice, right?

Then in 2007, I met Joey D from VH1’s The Pick Up Artist while I was on vacation with my girlfriends in Chicago.

Maybe he doesn’t really count as a celebrity, but at the time, I watched the show and I recognized him immediately. The Pick Up Artist guys were actually holding a convention in the Saks Hotel, where we were staying. He was a total dork, but really nice and sweet.

Except he kind of got a little grabby during the picture taking…

And don’t even get me started on the excitement of receiving a DM from John Cusack on Twitter in 2009. Unfortunately, it’s been erased (damn Twitter glitches!!), but I still remember exactly what it said. LOL

I tweeted something about John Cusack being the Gregory Peck of our time and he DM’d me “That’s quite the compliment. Thank you!”

And I cried a little.

I still get mad when I am looking at my DMs and remember that I once had a message from John Cusack in there.

Have you ever met a celebrity? Were they nice, like Kelli Maroney was to me, or totally rude like Michael C Hall?

    I met a ton when I worked at Disneyland. A list down to Z list. Some were great, some were rude. Bob Saget? Just as big a jerk as you might think. Jason Alexander on the other hand- couldn’t have been nicer (he didn’t have a host with him like most celebs do, but was just in the park with his family and actually waited in lines).

    The biggest star I ever met hands down was Tom Hanks. And yes, he was just as nice as everyone says he is- though possibly nicer because I didn’t realize it was him right away.

    Nope, I’ve never met a celeb before. But I live in a teeny-tiny town so there isn’t much chance to meet one either. 😀 If I could meet one though, I’d probably want to meet Johnny Depp. His acting is superb. :)

    I’ve met and been on stage with Naomi and Wynonna Judd. They were both super nice and I had a great time.

    Tricia Yearwood and Garth Brooks stayed here in my town for a while, taking care of her mother before she passed away. There were many people who saw them around town during that time. I did not. But everyone who saw them always complimented how nice and gracious they were.

    I don’t think I’d ever want to really meet my favorite actors. I like the image I have of them in my head and I’d hate for that image to be ruined.

    I’ve met a couple. Warrant and Great White. And I met Mr Ted Nugent a couple of times. They were all really nice. I had the chance to talk to Mr Nugent a few times and he is really down to earth. A very nice guy.

    LOL – I had absolutely no idea who Michael C Hall was until I read this. I just had to google him, so if I run into him in an airport one day, I wouldn’t know him if he sat on my lap.

    Look how cute you are in that picture! I think that is pretty darned cool that John Cusack DM’d you on Twitter!

    Let’s see, when I was a kid, my parents and I ended up at the NBC strike in Burbank and a bunch of stars were picketing. I got autographs from Patrick Duffy, Todd Bridges, James Garner Kevin Brophy and some others.

    THEN one time I went to see Tom Jones in concert at a casino/hotel. We went out to the pool area and the bartender told us that Tom was coming up shortly and would be renting a cabana. So we rented a cabana too, and it was right next to Tom’s. Well he sunbathed about 5 feet in front of me. I passed him at one point and said hello, and he said hello back. When he left, we grabbed his towel :)

    BTW, this is why I never tweet about celebrities on Twitter. Because I’m afraid if I say something negative about a Real Housewife or something, they’re going to send me a DM about it. Ha! At least you were saying something nice, but it’s kind of weird to interact with celebrities like that!
