I have the luck of knowing some people that happen to be famous. One, is my good friend Paula, who was on The Real World Key West. She was always, and is still, Paula to me... she just gets a lot of looks and "hey, arent you..." a LOT more when I hang out with her in New York or wherever we might be.
My other friend, who I will not name, is VERY famous. He was on the cover of People a few weeks ago and I called him to say he looks sexy with his shirt off. I don't feel like giving who it is away but I will say is that a lot of you know him and his girlfriend is VERY well known.
I grew up with his younger brother back in my acting days. Christian called me and asked if I wanted to meet for some beers and to play pool... so we met up at this bar we have been going to the last few years when he is in town from LA. We caught up on gossip, life and bullshit. About an hour later his famous brother walks in with his girlfriend....
One of the reasons I did not bring up his name is because I saw what it is like to be famous and going out in a bar. He was hounded by people in the bar to take pictures and talk and not enjoy a night out with friends. His girlfriend was hounded even more. it took the bouncer of the bar to come over and ask people to "leave us alone" to stop. I felt really bad. But overall, it was a cool night. My bar tab was picked up and I got to hang out with some cool people.
