I admit it. I am fascinated by celebrities. And being here in New York, I keep thinking I see them. Yesterday I told Lauren that Lamar Odom was in the elevator with me, but I googled him and found out he’s in LA, so it was probably just a tall black man here on vacation.
When I found out I was going to live in Chelsea for awhile, my first thought was that I could become friends with Katie Holmes. She’s a single mom living in Chelsea and I am too (ok, not really. But go with it) I pictured us taking Suri and Aidan to the park, with pics of us in People Magazine, skipping and laughing and drinking coffee at an outdoor cafe.
So far, the only celebrities we have seen are Snooki and JWow, being filmed on the street with Access Hollywood. They are not really famous, just famous for being infamous (but wow, they wear high shoes!)
To me, the real celebrities are the people in The Addams Family. They are amazing and I love watching them go in and out of rehearsal. They are so excited, filled with so much passion for what they do. They know they are lucky and blessed and seeing such joy in real people is incredible to me.
So, I will keep looking out for celebrities. And I may take lots of pics of people I think I see. But that old man in the jacket may not be Woody Allen. He could just be an old Jewish man who is walking down the street.
