What famous people have you met?

And what did you think of them?

I interviewed Pat Sajak and Vanna White Friday. They're in KC taping three weeks of shows. They were nice and very short. Pat was pretty funny.

Then the week before I interviewed Ed from Ext. Makeover: H.E. He's the British guy. They were in KC doing a home and a local company did the framing so Ed toured their facility and I got to do a story. He was extremely nice. Very down-to-Earth and cool.

I've met other famous people, but during the last two weeks I've gotten to hear who other people have met and I wanted to hear your stories.

6 past and present members of the rock band ASIA - I liked every single one of them

Kirk Cameron - great guy, very friendly

Oksana Baiul - sweet, smelled nice

Davy Jones (of the Monkees) - friendly

Trans-Siberian Orchestra - all very nice

John Larroquette - not rude, but not overly friendly

I've met several people who are famous in the Christian music industry.

I'm going to move this to LS for a broader response base, since it's a more general question.

not many - Bono, some gymnasts such as Mary Lou Retton (84 Olympic AA champ), Amy Chow (96 Olympic Team champ), Courtney Kupets (national champ, 04 Olympian), childrens author Patricia Polacco, Lance Armstrong said "hi" to me, I sat next to Warren Buffet at one of the DATA tour stops (didn't really "meet" him though since I didn't really know who he was until someone pointed it out afterwards).

David Crosby (of Crosby, Stills, Nash) -- I bumped into him at a coffee shop in Cali, I apologized and he was very nice about it and smiled. I thought it was him but not sure until my father's girlfriend began freaking once we left.

Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 -- He was a skeev

Ben Folds -- friendly

The bassist from Days Of The New -- he was very friendly, he let me interview him for an article

Dave Thomas -- (shrugs)

Mark McGrath -- Didn't really meet per se, just got to dance onstage with him with a few other girls.....

I'd give it all up to dance with B or meet him!

i've met a bunch of Olympic swimmers -- Pablo Morales and David Berkoff were both world record holders and gold medalists.

Gwyneth Paltrow -- tall, very pretty, very nice and polite and had the grace to extend her lovely hand and say, "hello, my name is gwyneth." as if i didn't know.

i've also seen, but not met: David Schwimmer, Richard Kind, Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Dreyfuss, Oksana Baiul, Gordeeva & Grinkov, Viktor Patrenko.

i'm not going to say because it's embarrassing. i never get to meet any cool famous people.

"Because a senator - a politician - a person - who can let hang in mid-air the prospect that she might just be sticking around in part, just in case the other guy gets shot - has no business being, and no capacity to be, the President of the United States." -- Keith Olbermann

No one overly famous...Sen. Lieberman, Sen. Dodd, Rep. Larson. Plus a bunch of people who'd only be considered "famous" in this state.
