I guess meeting celebrities is like finding true love: it happens when you stop looking… okay, just kidding. But it’s kind of true. After many visits to Greenwich Ave. in hopes of a celeb-sighting, I finally met someone – and I wasn’t looking. I was minding my own business being reckless at Tiernan’s, a bar in Stamford, when Katherine Heigl (who is filming The Big Wedding in Greenwich) just came walking through the door and ordered a dirty martini! Well, it turns out I do not get start-struck. I walked right up to her and had a casual conversation. Then I convinced her to take a picture with my ladies and me!

One of the cool things about working on Connecticut’s “gold coast” is that it’s crawling with celebs! Mostly it’s just people like Martha Stewart hiding in mansions, but once in a while exciting people come out to play.
Right now, Robert De Niro, Diane Keaton, Susan Sarandon, Topher Grace and Katherine Heigl (who both grew up in Fairfield county) are about 20 minutes away from me filming a new movie called “The Big Wedding.” They were spotted hanging around Greenwich Ave. last week, so I’ve been taking strolls there JIC. Diane was last seen at Saks so I parked my car there in case maybe she had to make a return….
