Lon Chaney Jr. was our neighbor in Capistrano Beach. He and my Dad used to knock back the booze on a regular basis. He'd decorate the **** out of his house for Halloween, and was a very generous man with the treats. He'd also buy all the fruitcakes I had to sell for our local Boy Scout troop Christmas fundraiser. I was the only boy who didn't have to go door-to-door to sell the cakes.

It pays to know Hollywood people.

My neighbors growing up and in my youth and young adulthood were John Wayne, Andy Devine, Jayne Wyman (next door neighbor), James Arness, David Rose and the Bergens. Met them all. Roy Rogers and Dale Evans summered on our island and I used to play with their children so I knew them as well.

Later I met Dennis Weaver and Dick Clark. I was so pleased that in person, he, Dick, actually looked his age. Jane Kulp (Beverly Hillbillies) was a sweetheart, Polly Bergen I didn't like, nor did I like Louis Nye but Candace Bergen was lovely and kind.

Thanks to the Newlywed Game, which the ex and I won after being married a whole six weeks following my two years overseas, we also met Bob Eubanks, the MC, and Chuck Barris, the producer in his first-ever appearance on the show.

I also appeared on the quasi-investigative show, American Journal, twice in 1994 about a senior fraud ring I uncovered and we did filmed stings on so I got to know their investigative reporters. Ultimately, people went to prison in several states. Mission Accomplished!

I know there are others but I'll have to plead senior moments!

When I worked at Whole Foods Market in Monterey, Clint Eastwood and Dean Stockwell each asked me where certain grocery items were located.

- Donald Faison (Scrubs, Clueless) and Maia Campbell (Moesha) - while they filmed "Trippin" at my high school many years ago. Naomi Campbell was also there during filming but I did not meet her. My only memory of Donald and Maia was that they smoked... ironically they put out a "no smoking" psa on Clueless some time after that.
- Jenna Leigh Green (Sabrina) - cast signing after Wicked at the Pantages Theatre. She played Nessa the night I was there, but she talked about how she was going to be Elphaba the next night.
- saw Darryl Stephens (Noahs Arc) while at Here in West Hollywood.
- spoke to Alec Baldwin (30 Rock) via phone at my old job; he was a company client. My communication was mostly with his assistant though.
- met Audrey Hepburn's son while at my old job, also a company client

Reality Tv:
- Brian Friedman (So You Think You Can Dance, judge) - while checking into our hotel at The Mirage, Las Vegas.
- Ruthie Alcaide (Real World Hawaii) - while at Here in West Hollywood a few years ago. She (accidentally) burned my best friend with her cigarrette.
- Jasmie Trias (American Idol) - when she did a small concert at Rage in West Hollywood.
- Camile Velasco (American Idol) - she showed up to my friend's birthday party in Pasadena. She's down to earth. She took a whole bowl of Starbursts lol.
- saw/noticed Anthony Fedorov (American Idol) at Dave & Busters in Irvine but I didn't really care to go up to him.

- I knew a few classmates that went on to the NFL and WNBA, if that counts.

I can't remember who else... shrug*
