omg I'm Star Struck!

I have never met a celebrity.  Ever.  So tonight was pretty cool!  I went to a fashion show at our local mall.  Several stores were displaying their new collections in different shows.  We showed up right when Alexis Bellino(Real Housewives of Orange County) when on stage to show off her new collection!!  My sister and I are HUGE Real Housewife fans!  I mean huge.  I watch them all and I love the outrageous drama! 

There's a picture in case you're not sure which one she is.  So anyway, my sister and I are watching her on stage as she speaks about her collection, and when she exits we notice she walks off to the side and a few people start walking up to her to take photos.  My sister and I look at each other and say "should we go?!"  So of course, knowing this is a once in a lifetime opportunity we head on over to her.  She looks right at us and I nudge my sister to ask her for a photo and she sees me do it so she walks up to meet us!!  Here's the strange part-not to be mean, but I'm not really a huge fan of her on the show but for some reason I got so incredibly giddy and silly!  She shook my hand and I laughed and said "Oh my god!  I am so star struck!"  Awkward?  Yes.  Then my sister giggles and points to me and says "This is my sister".  All she could think to say.  We were major dorks.  We took a photo with her but the person who took it cut half of Alexis's head off and the pic is horrible so I will not be sharing ;)  All my sister and I could do afterward is laugh at how incredibly stupid we acted.  It's definitely something I will never forget.

Have you ever met a celebrity?  Were you star struck?  I'd love to hear!


  1. She goes to the gym that my boyfriend works at. She even said "thank you" to him. I was shocked to hear it :-p


  2. Haha! That's awesome that you got to meet her! Living in LA and working for a while at a retail store, I feel like I met everyone, from Paris Hilton to Britney Spears... you wouldn't believe it, but these stars all go shopping at a major mall during normal times, and no one ever seems to bother them... except Tyra Banks, who had a lot of women come up to her. But my favorite, and the time I was MOST starstruck, was when I met the guy who plays Xander on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in my store... I almost died, I swear. I have such a big crush on him!!! I also had jury duty with William H Macy and Crispin Glover, hahaha.

  3. That's awesome! LOL
    It's TIFF here in TO and Brad Pitt is in town... sigh....oh did I mention George Clooney ? I'm certain I'd just make a giant fool of myself so I'll avoid the "city" this weekend...I wouldn't mind accidentally bumping into Ryan Gosling and his abs though...have you seen Crazy Stupid Love yet? I've seen it twice, OMG! It's great :)
