Kate Beckinsale is one of my all time favorites. First of all, I’ve been a fan of hers since Last Days of Disco, Shooting Fish, Much Ado About Nothing, etc… Underworld just sealed that deal. LOL…
I thought it would be fun to take a look back at one of the times I headed out for Marcia Cross and she didn’t show, but even though I didn’t get Bree, I did get Selene.
Check out the full flashback below!
“Tonight, Tonight, Tonight… ohhhhhh” yes, I just quoted Phil Collins, and no I did not do it purposely. Sigh… Anyway, “Tonight, Tonight, Tonight…” I am out and about once again for Marcia Cross. My love of the Desperate Housewives is unparalleled, sigh… Tonight the one and only Ms. Eva Longoria is getting honored by the Hollywood Reporter as the Philanthropist of the year. I have heard Ms. Cross is supposed to be here along with Dana Delany, and one of my favorites Kate Beckinsale. So, let the Marcia Cross hunting begin!
6:21 p.m. – I just arrived with a couple friends. The red carpet runs from 6:30 to, I think 7:30. We are at a club/restaurant in Hollywood. We are the only ones here so far except for a couple paparazzi.
6:32 p.m. – Still waiting, Sheryl Crow is also supposed to be here and I have a poster from her last album and also a vintage Rolling Stone for her to sign as well. I have tried to get Sheryl a couple times before. Ironically the last time I saw her is the last time I was rejected by Marcia Cross.
6:41 p.m. – Oh a car just pulled up. It’s Eva Longoria. She looks stunning, but is being rushed inside. There are a couple people wanting pictures with her but she said she has to go and will do it after. Sigh…
6:49 p.m. – The security is really lax here, which is kind of nice. I personally like a barricade, but that’s just me.
7:12 p.m. – I’m actually having a lot of fun tonight, I don’t really know why, but I just am… Oh crap… a car just pulled up… it’s… it’s… It’s Kate Beckinsale! I have my Last Days of Disco poster that I got Chloë Sevigny to sign.
7:13 p.m. – I’m trying to pull the poster out of my bag, but of course it’s stuck! Crap… I have it mounted to a board, and the bag I have it in is just not cooperating with me. Grrr… Literally, my friends are like, “Mike… Mike… Mike…” I’m like, “I know!”
7:14 p.m. – Okay it’s out now… sigh… I’m running over to her car. She signed a couple pictures for another guy, and then she notices my poster. She says, “Oh wow…” and then signs it for me. Whoo hoo!
7:22 p.m. – It’s all quiet on the Western front… Oh wait, Dana Delany just pulled up. She is very nice but in a rush. I got her on a piece of photo paper. I loved her in China Beach and wanted a still from that signed so now I can print it.
7:24 p.m. – Holly Robinson from 21 Jumpstreet just arrived. “21 Jump—Street!” yes, I was singing the theme song, don’t you judge me!
7:28 p.m. – The mayor of Los Angeles just pulled up. What! Mayer Antonio Villaraigosa must be visiting Eva Longoria! Okay, you never know what will happen when you get around! LOL….
7:47 p.m. – No Marcia Cross, sigh… man oh man, I have tried so hard to get her and she still eludes me! Harrumph! Sigh…
7:59 p.m. – Mario Lopez just arrived. He will not sign; he will not do photos, and ignored everyone walking inside.
8:10 p.m. – Well, it looks like everyone is here. No Sheryl Crow either…
8:22 p.m. – It looks like the party may be over already. That was quick. People are all starting to leave.
8:39 p.m. – We are going around the side of the building. Eva Longoria is leaving; she takes pics with a couple people and then hops into her car. Sigh… I didn’t get her.
8:45 p.m. – Sheryl Crow is leaving, she must have come in the back way… man; I’m behind her and can’t get to her with all the photographers… grrrr… My friend grabs my poster and tries to hold it up for her to sign, but she is ignoring him. Man oh man…
8:49 p.m. – We are still waiting for Kate to leave now, I have my Esquire for her to sign, but it looks like she is going out the back. Dana Delany is leaving now…
8:55 p.m. – I see one of the guys from Entourage…. Kevin Connolly. He is really nice and hanging out with the photographers and signing a few things.
9:02 p.m. – It looks like I am going to call it a night. No Marcia but I did get Kate Beckinsale who I really love so it was worth it. Plus, now my poster is finished! YAY!
Until next time kids…
