I forgot one, I went to high school with Terell Suggs #55 of the Baltimore Ravens. Even back then, everyone knew he was going to go pro and they wanted to make sure he got through high school...it was actually kind of weird to see all of the special treatment he got.

Those were some of the funnest high school football games I went to though.

i am terrible with actually recognizing celebrities as themselves. more often, i will be >thisclose< to saying, "has anyone ever told you that you look like that celebrity [their name here]?" luckily my friends will grab me before that happens (again) since they know i have a problem.

Haha! I have the same problem! I never recognize celebrities! My friends always do, though and they're like "Do you know who that was?" and my answer is usually something like "huh?" haha! I once told Selena Gomez that she "looks like that chick from the Disney channel."

I met Angelina Jolie on nature hike in Belize. We hit it off right away. Afterwards we hung out on a private yacht but I couldn't stay very long. She kept coming on to me and her breath was bad. Deal breaker.

This happened.

Oh, We are friends with Javier Colon. He won the first season of the Voice. I am not sure if he is a celebrity though. He grew up with my husband and was with the Derick Truck's band before going out on his own. His wife Maureen and kids are really sweet and live about 10 minutes from us.

Tortoiseboy, I hate to be the one to tell you this but you're gonna have to do a little better than that:D

How about this. I met the guy who created the formula for 10W30, lol.

Also met the founder of Cold Stone. He actually lived down the street from me growing up. He had a pool shaped like an ice cream cone, and the cherry on top was a hot tub.[/QUOTE]

That's one kool pool! Lol

Like some of his songs, and have TREMENDOUS respect for his business savvy...not many artists have beat record labels at their own game!

I thought I'd attempt to reserect this old but interesting thread.
The vast majority of the posters are no longer on the TFO.
I never mentioned that I used to live down the road from SNAKE OIL salesman Jim Bakker of PTL fame during my brief first marriage and living in Fort Mill South Carolina.
And even more exciting was when elder rapper Flavor Flav was on our plane from Las Vegas to Fort Lauderdale international Airport.
So, no. No big celebrities.

....And I just noticed that this post is not open to further replies.....
