Matt Herkimer, who is vacationing in LA, bumped into Mario Lopez at the farmers market. He promised to bring back lots of pictures to prove his claim. His brush with fame got us to talking about celebrities you've bumped into. I've been lucky enough to meet lots of people, and although Keith Urban is my favorite person, the backstage experience with Brooks n Dunn tops the cake. They are always willing to share a beer, take lots of pictures and just shoot the breeze. You've bumped into a number of interesting people too.

  • Gene Simmons

    Lillian ran into Kiss frontman Gene Simmons at the Detroit airport. She was on her way home from Las Vegas. Nice way to wrap up a trip. And she said he was a very nice man.

  • Keith Urban


    Dotti Spina has met a number of people, if you look at the photos on her Facebook page. But Keith Urban tops her list.  She says 'Keith was incredibly warm and kind. The meet & greet was a class act with all the food and the question and answer portion.  He made us feel so comfortable and he truly cared about each and every one of us. He looked us in the eye and he couldn’t believe I drove an hour and an half. Little did he know I would have driven further!'
