I just got this great report in from Ace! I have to tell you, I have an addiction… And I’m only sort of ashamed to admit it… I love all the kitchen/cooking shows that are out there… I know I know… It’s a sickness I can’t help it. LOL… Gordon Ramsay is generally speaking at the forefront of my cook show addictions. lol…
Anyway, Ace got to meet Gordon Ramsay along with Sparkle AKA Jordin Sparks and Andy Grammer!
Check out his full recap after the jump!
What’s up, you autograph addicts! On August 21st, I had the opportunity to meet Gordon Ramsay (Hell’s Kitchen), Jordin Sparks (American Idol), and Andy Grammer (Singer of Keep Your Head Up).
But, before I get on to the Fanboy Recap, I got some mojo in the mailbox. After a LONG wait time, from none other than broadway, I present to you, cast signed playbills of Harvey and the Fantasticks. The Harvey Playbill features Carol Kane, Rich Sommers, but most importantly, JIM PARSONS! BAZINGA! The Fantasticks Playbill features Aaron Carter! Now… on to the Recap.
3:45- Arrived… Totally Regret going early… Nobody was there anyway… It was HOT!…. Truly Annoying Circumstances… Regret not going for Van Damme first…
3:46-4:20- Hobos! Tourists! And More! Graphers show up! Paps show up! Heat dies down! Countdown time!
4:25- Andy Grammer rushed in right away…. Not a great sign….
5:50- Sparks shows up! We try to get her over! She acknowledges us and claimed that she would come back later!
6:20- Ramsay shows up! He races his car down the alley! Makes an abrupt stop at the stage door. Gets out of the car, leaving the motor running… LIKE A BOSS! He acknowledges us, waves, and claims that he will come back later as well. In the mean time, his car is still running, with the keys in the ignition…. They have to start turning away people driving down the alley… Eventually, one of the personnel moves his car into the lot… Oh Boy….What a tough, boring job….
6:21- 8:00- Trying out sharpies. Preparing… Get a lesson on gold Paint Pens… Lot of learning going on….
(Editor’s Note: I should probably do an entire post on paint pens. lol… They are awesome when they work and horrible when they don’t! M-)
8:08- Gordon Ramsay comes out! Goes down the line…
He was just amazing. Signed multiples for everyone that asked. He was so kind to his fans. Inscribed all photos with love.
Told all the women who spoked to him, “Thanks Darling” or “Thanks, my love”.
As he got down to me, I forgot to ask for a picture… He signed my two items. I told him I loved his programs and that it was an honor to meet him… He said, “Thanks bud”. Just a class act…. He was so sincere…
I love his show Kitchen Nightmares! It is always cool to see places in LA that you should stay away from…. Just remember guys… Don’t mess with the people serving your food… As he stopped in front of me, I was wondering if he would call me a donkey. It would have made my day….
8:20- Jordin Sparks exits the building! Starts walking over…
I scramble to get my item out… Snap a photo… and wait in anticipation. She is so sweet! Just a remarkable personality.
(Anybody remember her tribute to Whitney Houston? It was Fantastic!) She makes sure that everyone’s picture turned out ok… Even then, some people didn’t want to say anything.
Made sure she signed for everyone. Answered the Paps questions… Just a beautiful person, inside and out.
8:49- Andy Grammer exits the building… By this time, the graphers left and only a few people remain.
I am proud to say that I love his song “Keep Your Head Up”… It is a great song to pick you up when you are in the slumps…
He took a picture with me and signed my three photos! He even signed the Cardboard! He was really, really cool!
Overall, It was Fantastic!
