We began our day Thursday by going down to Hollywood Boulevard in front the Kodak Theatre for the presentation of Walk of Fame Star to newswoman Barbara Walters. The gals from the View, Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselback, were in attendance as well as actress Linda Dano and Paris Hilton's mother and sister, Kathy Hilton, and Nicky Hilton. Among the tributes to Barbara were those by the LA Chief of Police and the Chairman of the Board of Disney, Robert Iger. Yours truly was right on the ropes in front of Barbara - a great spot!
I had lunch with ex-GH star Rick "Hutch" Moses, who talked about the old days of Luke and Laura and the "Hard Days Night" like craziness of the public appearances they all did back then with girls chasing Tony Geary and him everywhere they went. Great conversation and food!
The Creative Emmys were held Thursday night and I went over to the Renaissance Hotel in the Kodak Complex and ended up seeing many stars and getting my photo taken with Barbara Walters, All My Children star Thorsten Kaye and soap legend Robin Strasser. We saw everyone who is anyone in soaps!
Friday is the BIG DAY! The Daytime Emmys! I will post my report after the show! It should be quite the wild time! Missing Bradenton, but not the humidity! LOL
Never miss a local story.
