Exactly what I just wrote on another thread. (By the way, Chewie, Shania supposedly lives up the
road, but she's never invited me over for a drink.)
If you had a hundred million dollars, she might! Marth probably wouldn't talk to you, but Shania might.
If the only reason is because I won millions, I probably wouldn't want to be her buddy. By the way, although I don't hang out with any of them (never been asked) lots of celebrities live here, yet few people I know have ever talked to any of them. I doubt if they would even drive down my street! They usually socialize within their own circle of friends, and I'm sure a few have bodyguards, but I've never heard of anyone being threatened or stalked. Sure, once in a while someone will name drop "Oh, there's Tom Cruise's mother" but people like Stephen Spielberg and Mike Ditka must quietly hop around to their favorite spots or I simply haven't noticed them. (That said, I have a very boring social life!) Then there are those who don't care what anyone thinks. A couple of years ago I worked in a furniture store and greeted a couple and, like an idiot, I said "You look familiar. Have I helped you before?" My boss whispered in my ear "that's Judge Judy and Judge Jerry." This was in an crummy outlet store too! So even the rich & famous shop for bargains. (and they weren't carrying any weapons that I could see...just doing what everyone else does on a Sunday afternoon.)
