We all know someone famous,
who do you know?
how do you know them?
are you related?
went to school with?

And what do you think of them (from a personal point of view)

Default Since I started this thread

I'm Sarah Silverman's uncle (once removed) Her sister married my nephew

I am not a big fan of her caustic humor, but I do 'get' the joke what she is doing with it, and laugh at her materiel.

Personally she is really very shy and quiet, a strict vegetarian who really enjoys a quiet chat, and please uncle jonny 'no jokes'

We all do ? Well if I know someone famous I wish someone would tell me who it is.
I know nobody who is famous and have no desire to.

Wow! I saw one of her shows on cable, and she was griping about one of her sisters. Does she have more than one? It's interesting to hear that in real life she is not that persona we see on TV. I am not a fan of her caustic humor either and am surprised to hear she is not really like that.

I have no exciting tales to tell, nothing that I can remember at the moment. I used to work at a Mail Boxes Etc. in "the Valley" in California. I rented a mailbox to Marion Ross, Mrs. Cunningham from Happy Days. That's where she got her fan mail. Although she looks a little older, she is just as kind and gracious in real life as you might think. A charming lady.

This guy was also in my class in high school. He was one of those high school athlete superstars in varsity football and basketball. His dad was one of my gym teachers.

Oh I got one.

My high school counselor who I was pretty close with went to school with Sean Hayes (Jack from Will and Grace). She said he was a real piece of work. So I'm guessing as dramatic and full of himself as his character is? Not really sure exactly what she meant by that though, she never really elaborated more than that.

My mom went to high school and sang in the Glee club with Patsy Cline but that is as close as I come, and she died in a plane accident a long time ago. My mom said Beverly D'Angelo portrayed her best in a movie.
