Geronimo, however, tells me about meeting Madonna in the elevator (She's very fit, but her legs have really bad varicose and/or spider veins).
He also tells me about none other than Cloris Leachman. (I mean, Madonna? zzzzzzz, but Cloris -freaking- Leachman?! This is exciting). Of course, in my zeal, I forced him to go into detail. (He wasn't very cooperative)
She was funny. She was very sweet. He worked as her assistant for some HRC event.
He held her shoes! (The silly fool didn't notice the size).
Anyway, it got me thinking of some of the other celebrities that friends have told me about meeting or knowing. Off the top of my head (I know I'm forgetting some), in no particular order:
Chris Isaak, whom a very good friend of mine dated a while back. (Accoring to her, he's hairier than one might imagine...he's showing his age up close...but very charming. She still has his number...even met his parents.)
Kevin Spacey, by way of my friend Ben, I hear tales of his penchant for men.
(Yeah, I know...zzzzzzzzzz)
Harry Connick Jr., with whom Marshall went to high school (no dirt thus far).
Jude Law, whom my friend Jennifer met while working on his movie...(taller than you might imagine, very thin, but sexy in person, she says, and great with his kids.)
Ann Margret, the last guy I dated knew her personally. Ok, so he kind of worshipped her. Unfortunately, he cound't see objectively enough to give any dirt.
Snoop Dog, whom my friend and mentor, Mary, and her girlfriend Marla flew with to Japan, I believe. (He didn't light up a blunt on the plane or anything, alas. According to her, he seemed very low key and normal).
Sarah Jessica Parker on a plane, by way of my friend Lisa (she looked very homely and didn't wear a bra....but was very thin). Lisa charmed her way into using the first class bathroom as an excuse to brush up against SJP.
Prince Charles/Bob Barker (by way of Debbie), never did hear any info about them...her recounting of these meetings seemed mainly..well, about Debbie.
Patti Labelle, whom William served as a one time p.a. (She was not the nice, cuddly diva you might expect, according to him.)
Anne Wedgeworth(of "Filthy Rich"/"Three's Company" fame...surely you know her?) that Michael met on the street in NYC.
Peter Facinelli, (among many others), whom my friend Danni met while working at Tower Records.
Mary Tyler Moore, whom my friend Mark saw on the street while waiting for us to arrive in NYC. I was on the phone, trapped in Newark Airport, listening to him go on and on. I could have killed someone from envy.
And to think, I was briefly two degrees of separation from nearly every important person you can imagine by way of Annie Leibovitz. This art critic I once dated...sort of...was connected to or knew just about every celeb you can imagine, by way of his friendship with her (no dirt however, except that he did say that Annie, much like Jude Law, was very tall and handsome).
So, do any of you have any sightings, so that I can shamelessly pad out my rolodex of two degrees-of-separation celebs?
