It’s Sixteen Candles!
Who doesn’t love the iconic 1980’s John Hughes classic? I mean it’s amazing! If you say “amazing” in a high pitched voice, it’s even better, let me tell you.
I’m here recovering with my sad injured back, and thinking… John… Hughes.. Marathon!
OMG! And the coolest thing, is that Pinky even got a photo with… Molly Ringwald. I KNOW!
Check out her recap below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here still excited about meeting yet another cast member from my beloved Sixteen Candles. As we all know, there are very few things I love more than a John Hughes film and this one was definitely one of his best.
In fact, if I had money to burn and nowhere to be, I’d go off on a wild search for Jake Ryan himself who, sadly, left the movie business in 1991 (we miss you, Michael Schoeffling!!!).
But, I digress. Debbie Pollack was at a recent autograph show and at first I didn’t recognize her by just her name alone. The website for the autograph show only listed names, not pictures, so I was pleasantly surprised to look her up and discover she was none other than Long Duck Dong’s “sexy American girlfriend,” Marlene. Wahoo!
Mikey and I made our way over to the show and found it to be, well, the opposite of busy. That was good for us, though, because we were able to interact a little more with our favorite stars. Debbie was as sweet as can be and she was set up right next to Paul Dooley, who played Molly’s dad in the film,
and Liane Curtis, who played Molly’s best friend. I love Liane! She always cracks me up and it was awesome to see her again.
Plus, getting a selfie with both Liane and Debbie was a dream come true! If only Long Duck Dong had been there, as well….maybe another time?
Debbie told me that Gedde Watanabe (Long Duck Dong) has been a good friend of hers for 20 years. Love that!
Slowly, but surely, my Sixteen Candles collection is growing….now if only Jake Ryan would come out of hiding. Sigh.
