Happy birthday to actress Loni Anderson! Back when I was a baby G, I met the beauty when she was married to Mr. Burt Reynolds! It’s funny that when this picture was being taken, Burt and Loni had explained that they were both running late, so it was not possible for them to sign an autograph for me. But they must not have been able to resist the sad look of disappointment on my face and they both signed for me! Memories I cherish to this day. Thanks!

Happy 75th birthday to actor and sex symbol Burt Reynolds. I remember meeting him and his then wife Loni Anderson at one of the first celebrity events I ever went to. It was so exciting to meet the people that I saw on my TV screen, I got a little hooked on it. Thousands of in person celebrity encounters later… Also celebrating birthdays today are singers Sheryl Crow, Brandy; actors Tina Louise and Taylor Lautner from the Twilight movies. It’s also Sarah Palin’s birthday today, but we at according2g think she’s one of the dumbest people alive, so she gets no love from us.
