The night, I was in DC for the X Rated Fusion Liqueur event, we just so happened to stop at the W for drinks before heading over to a late night spot called Josephines. I was sitting in the lobby and glanced over, and who did I see… Chris Tucker!!! Now, I’m gonna be honest, I had a complete fan moment as I had just asked about him on twitter a few days before. The tweet was something in the tune of, ‘Where is Chris Tucker? I so miss him in movies’.
Now, mind you, I doubt if Chris Tucker knew who I was but that day I was a fan. I hauled ass to try to say ‘Hi’. He stopped briefly but those elevator doors he was standing near opened up, and he was out of there without saying a word. Needless to say, my little heart was crushed.
A few minutes later (through twitter ironically) I found out that he had been in the blogs for foreclosure and IRS stuff (something I knew nothing about and didn’t cover) so maybe he thought I was going to bring that up. … Sigh
That same night, in the same lobby, I ran into Asha Kamali (one of the creators of the web series ‘Milk & Honey”). She was super nice and we chatted about the show, Idris Elba (who executive produced the show) and Lance Gross. One thing, I did learn that night is that the voice memo on the Iphone can double easily as a voice recorder/interviewing device and when you are done, you can email the audio to yourself (or my assistant in this case). Super handy for interviews on the go!
