There’s a lot of people I can call on who know somebody who know somebody. Yeah, I’m proud of that. And this week, thanks to my dear friend Maggie Downs, I now can call Jessica Biel, Brad Pitt and Kate Winslet and that cute little girl from “Little Miss Sunshine” some of my dear near-friends. I plan to use these new relationships sparsely and selectively, so don’t rush me for movie tickets, glossy autographed photographs or seat-holder gigs at the Academy Awards. You’re not gettin’ ’em. That’s for me – if they call me back.
But if you don’t believe me – or maybe you know Maggie and want to see her in action – check out Palm Spring’s hippest columnist (and Cincinnati’s former hippest columnist) interviewing all the Big Stars on the red carpet at the Palm Springs International Film Festival. She’s like a real “Entertainment Tonight” reporter, but with a background in print (I swear that a good thing, MED).
