Sound Off: Meeting famous people in the strangest places
In Nashville recently, I tagged along with some people to Reese Witherspoon’s clothing store. Reese was there and I immediately asked if I could have my picture taken with her. She obliged and that started a long line from our group and everybody else in the store getting their picture taken with her. She was very warm and friendly. Later in my trip, I met a man who’s daughter went to school with Reese and a woman who went to college with Oprah Winfrey. They both talked about them being super achievers and doing so much more work than their classmates. Then, on my trip back, I bought a newspaper with a full-page article about Reese Witherspoon being a power broker in Hollywood. She reads three books a week! Not satisfied with scripts being written for female leads, she started optioning books, trying to get studios to produce them. After multiple rejections, she formed her own company. The first two movies, “Wild” and “Gone Girl” grossed over a half-billion dollars, plus earned three Oscar nominations. Wow! The whole experience convinced me that these people are where they are because of being smart and being very hard workers.

Dragon Con 2016: photos, stormtroopers and…Joey Fatone?
The Dragon Con question I must get answered this weekend: What are Joey Fatone and Chris Kirkpatrick doing here?The former N’ Sync-ers were spotted in the Walk of Fame autograph room Friday evening (sorry, no photos allowed in there unless you pay) chatting with some fans, some of whom possibly paid the $40 they were asking for an autograph.On Sept. 10, Fatone is opening a hot dog stand called Fat One’s in Orlando’s Florida Mall and it appeared he and Kirkpatrick had some swag from the new joint for sale. Hey, no judgment from the person who will gladly stand in line to meet Gillian Anderson on Sunday.
Lena Dunham rips Odell Beckham Jr. for allegedly rejecting her
Dunham claims that Beckham Jr. sat next to her at the Met Gala — New York’s premier fashion event — and was so uninterested in her that he chose to scroll through Instagram rather than chit-chat. Although Beckham Jr. didn’t actually speak a word to her, Dunham didn’t stop herself from attempting to interpret what she views as a sexist take on her physique and appearance.
Photos: The Javits Center Gets Energized For Star Trek Mission New York
On Friday afternoon, most of the attendees at Mission New York were amassed in the Javits Center’s North Exhibit Hall, where much of the 110,000 square feet of floorspace was dedicated to vendors hawking Star Trek-branded goods. Messenger bags, figurines, prints, cosplay uniforms, patches, collectible cards, posters, official Star Trek-printed two dollar bills, autographed photos, autograph holders, spaceship owner’s manual, mugs, stamps, plates, jewelry, board games, 3-D printed phasers, light-up Tricorders, video games, and battery-powered tribble toys will all be on sale throughout the weekend, but even more appealing are the exhibits, which include a dead-on recreation of the Enterprise bridge and a NASA exhibit displaying some of the technology that’s already allowing us to boldly go where no man has gone before (“Hey, you guys are getting close!” one uniformed Trekkie told a NASA scientist).
