With Susan Carlisle
I haven’t gotten giddy about a famous person since I saw Elvis when I was in the sixth grade and take my word for it that was a number of years ago. So with heart pounding expectations I looked forward to seeing Mario Lopez who is one of the MCs for the show Extra which is about all things Hollywood. When I found out he would be filming at Universal Studio I told my husband I planned to be there for the show and to stand back if he didn’t want to get wet because I would be drooling.
My day of star sightings started early when I saw a man in the parking lot I thought I recognized. I called, “Bill Nigh?” He looked at me and waved. It was Bill Nigh the Science Guy. I loved it when I got to show his science videos when I was substituting for a class at the high school. I was tickled with the start of my day.
Posted in the City Walk was the filming schedule for Extra which would take place near the famous Globe Fountain in front of Universal Studio. My excitement level increased when I saw Mark Walburg’s name on the list as one of the guests. I’m a huge Marky Mark fan. I even remember back to the jeans commercial and the great abs of his youth. Can you say double deal of the day? The Ms. Mario and Mark in the same day! Could my heart stand it? Mark was actually interviewed by Maria Menounos. She is Mario’s counterpart. All I can say about her is that she is beautiful and thin and I hate her. Mark was very down to earth and a nice guy. He sounded very sincere and passionate about his work. Heather Graham also made an appearance as I was standing there watching Mark leave. Yes, I watched to the very last second.
Next up was Mario. I wasn’t disappointed. He is almost pretty with his gorgeous dimples. I came close to squalling when I saw him.He interviewed the group of actors from Men at Work. They were very funny together and seemed to like each other.
I can’t say the every visit to universal studios will have you seeing stars I just know that I enjoyed the bright flashes of light I sawand went away a happy camper. I will be going back to Universal again when I have a chance.
I enjoyed my trip to the Los Angeles area and I hope you enjoyed hearing about it.
