Happy New Year!
Am I the only one shocked that it’s 2013 already? (I’m guessing not!)
Since it’s the first of the month, it’s time for another Hollywood story. I was trying to come up with something new year related, but since most shows go on hiatus during the holidays I really didn’t come up with anything fun. So instead of a holiday story, I thought I’d share the next best thing… a Clooney story. LOL. (Can’t go wrong with one of those!)
I’ve told a few George stories along the way so forgive me if you’ve heard this one before. Most of you know that I worked on “Roseanne” for the first four seasons and that’s where I met George. (He played Booker, the manager of the factory where Roseanne worked.) Well, two or three years after the show ended, my husband worked on a pilot where George was a guest star. My husband and I were at the pilot’s premiere party at the director’s house and I was parked in a chair in one the main rooms directly across from the front door. The party was in full swing and I didn’t really expect to see George. I figured if he hadn’t showed up by now, he wasn’t going to be there. Well, lo and behold, the door opened up and guess who walked in. Yep. Mr. Clooney. Now, keep in mind that I hadn’t seen him in a couple of years. Bless his gorgeous heart, he walked into the house and looked around. When he spotted me, his eyes got wide and he made a bee line straight toward me. I was the first person he hugged at that party. We caught up for a few minutes before he left to mingle with everyone else, but I will never forget it as long as I live. He was always special to me and he always will be.
What about you? Any reunions with someone who was special in your life? How’d it go?
