For those of you who know me , you'll recall I'm a tad bitter at my lack of celebrity sightings. Heck, I went to Los Angeles TWICE last year and didn't even spot a Lohan or a Kardashian. They're everywhere!
My only celebrity encounter is the Danny Wood neck-sniffing incident. That's a pretty dang great story, but I can only tell it so many times. (Although I got to tell it to a new person on Tuesday, which I greatly enjoyed. If you haven't heard it, ask me next time you see me!)
My mom met a celebrity in New Martinsville, WV. Granted, he was there for an autographing session but she still met him. If you've never been to New Martinsville, you're not missing much. It's very tiny and very into country music.
I'm not a soap opera person. The rest of my family has been involved in an exclusive relationship with The Young and the Restless for more years than I've been alive. (I think a few also flirt with The Bold and the Beautiful.)
One of The Young and the Restless' bona fide stars, Michael Muhney, was signing autographs.
He apparently plays Victor Newman's son, Adam Wilson. Not sure why his last name isn't also Newman, but I'm sure it involves some scandal and maybe an evil twin. He was also the nasty sheriff guy on Veronica Mars, which helped me figure out who he was. I loved me some Veronica Mars.
My mom told Michael how much my grandmother loves The Young
and the Restless but that she was in the hospital so she couldn't be there to meet him. (She's been in and out of the hospital for the past several months - very sad and stressful.)
Michael said "Well let's call her!" He picked up the phone and chatted with my grandmother in the hospital, telling her he hoped she felt better soon and was sorry he couldn't meet her. For the crappy celebrities out there, this one was genuinely nice to my grandmother and mom. That's always nice to hear!
Here's a shot of Michael and my mom - I thought it was cute!
