The return of Saying Something Nice About Celebrities Wednesdays!
Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn got hitched a few weeks back. I've been fond of Rebecca since her Stamos days and enjoyed hearing about when she and Stamos would party with Howard Stern and his ladyfriend Beth. (Howard & Beth have named their bulldog in tribute to this love triangle: Bianca Romijn Stamos O'Connell.) I liked that Rebecca could have any mimbo she wants, but she goes for guys with a sense of humor. I know Jerry O'C has that goin' on, as I was all charmed by him when he was on Conan (and that's how I form my impressions of most celebrities; their performance on Conan).
And in addish to having a personality and seemingly not being a jerk, the former fat kid from Stand by Me is super-hot now. In fact, I saw him in Chelsea last year and creeped him out. A friend and I were standing near an open doorway inside a bar after her improv performance at Upright Citizens Brigade one Sunday afternoon, when we both saw Jerry about to come in the bar. He was in a tight white T-shirt with his blue eyes on high-beam, and lookin' fine.
We froze with our mouths gaping open, total deer-in-headlights style, which the man couldn't help but notice, and he turned and went back the way he came.
Awesome! I'm so smooth.
