Sweetie, sweetie, sweetie! It’s Joanna Lumley’s birthday today! The actress most famously starred as Patsy on the UK comedy “Absolutely Fabulous.” Last year, she was on Broadway in an excellent play called “La Bete.” I had the opportunity to meet Joanna 3 times and I have to say, after meeting thousands of celebrities from all walks of fame, Joanna Lumley is one of the nicest people I’ve ever encountered. She was so nice. She graciously signed all of my Ab Fab DVDs and even wrote “Cheers Sweetie,” a classic Ab Fab line, on one of my photos! Well over 6 months later, I have not forgotten about the encounter and when I think of her and watch episodes of Ab Fab, which is a lot, I can’t help but smile and be grateful for the laughs she’s given me (and all of us) and be very impressed with how sweet of a person she is. Thanks again Joanna and I hope you have an absolutely fabulous day!

Playwright David Hirson is awesome! His play “LaBete” is currently on Broadway (and I recommend you check it out). It stars David Hyde Pierce (of “Frasier”), stage star Mark Rylance – who gives a Tony caliber performance, as well as Joanna Lumley (of “Absolutely Fabulous”). The show is definitely worth seeing as it is very well acted, is funny and of course, has a wonderful cast. Hirson wrote the play in iambic pentameter and when you think of the skill involved by the actors pulling off these lines with such perfection, you cannot help but take your hat off to David Hirson. Thanks for being so cool David!

Joanna Lumley and G!!!
September 26, 2010 is a day I’ll never forget! I met over 7 celebrities on that day including one of my all time favorites – Joanna Lumley! If you haven’t figured it out from the picture, one�of Joanna Lumley’s most famous roles was Patsy Stone from the hit British comedy “Absolutely Fabulous.” I went to see Joanna’s latest play “LaBete” on Broadway (which is so great, by the way – and more on “LaBete” coming soon) and I met her both before and after the show. She is one of the nicest celebrities I’ve ever met! She was so happy to autograph all of my AbFab DVDs and she took a photo with me. She was equally as nice to my friend who’d brought some very rare AbFab memorabilia for her to sign. Wow! If you are reading this Joanna, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for playing a role that I love so much and reference in daily life. I also thank you for being so nice and for giving me a smile that has lasted all day and won’t wear off any time soon. As a side note, you can tell that Joanna Lumley has not had any type of surgery and she looks even more beautiful as a result. She is such an inspiration all the way around! Right, cheers, thanks a lot Joanna! Cheers sweetie!
