One thing I love about living in New York City is the fact that every so often, you are bound to have a celebrity siting on the streets somewhere in the city. Since moving to New York I have had the following star run-ins :
There was one time I saw someone and I didn’t know who he was, but I knew I had seen him before. I racked my brain for hours trying to figure out who this mystery man was. I thought he was from some trashy tv show that I watched, but I just couldn’t place him. Then, months later, I spotted this same person walking on the street – but this time I had witnesses with me: Matt, our friend Nick and his girlfriend. After we passed by this unidentified celebrity, I quickly turned to Nick’s girlfriend and asked her is she recognized the person we just passed. Unfortunately she hadn’t noticed him. Thankfully, Matt and Nick overhead us discussing this and immediately Nick identified him for me.
Immediately I knew he was right – Randy from “Say Yes to the Dress!” Not only was I impressed with Nick’s strong facial recognition skills, but I was also impressed that he had watched Say Yes to the Dress. I knew there was a reason I liked him!
Yesterday as I was walking down the street talking to my mom on the phone, I saw someone who I thought looked familiar. But what also made them stand out was the device they were talking into. Here I was, strolling down the street talking into my iPhone headphones looking all cool and city-chic. Well, the celeb in questions was holding this:
So apparently, the new trend in technology is moving back to pre-cell phone times. Suddenly my apple ear buds seemed so 2010.
Unfortunately my inability to place this celeb is driving me crazy! Again, I think he is a host or judge for one of the reality shows on Bravo/HGTV/Food Network – I think this might be a sign that I need to cut back on my trashy tv… I have spent the morning googling “Reality TV stars” but nothing yet. I am thinking that I should call up Nick and describe this guy – I have a feeling he would be able to get to the bottom of this!
