Everyone I know sees celebrities but me. This is true. Even when I'm visiting New York, L.A., Boston, Vegas, and other places you'd expect to see them, I just miss them. Always.
The most ironic part of this story is that in the past few weeks, I've decided to whine about that fact. A lot.
Roberto's River Road Restaurant right outside of Baton Rouge, I noticed a beautiful girl who reminded me of Natasha from SATC. (You know, Big's skinny/model/wife?) Anyway, I kept glancing back, and thought if it wasn't her, some girl was really fortunate to look that much like her.
A few minutes later, it was confirmed by another friend: I'd seen my first celebrity sighting! And with no help! I was very excited.
(Several movies have been being filmed in Baton Rouge lately, including Battle: Los Angeles, which she has a role in.)
No one said anything to her (tempting though it was), and she and her date were seated while we waited for a table for 15 to open up.
Way into our dinner, Bridget Moynahan poked her head into our room with a big smile and waved goodbye! We all acted like the Southerners we are, waving excitedly. Someone asked if she'd take a pic with us, and she did:

Below is a solo shot of her (from IMDB):
And here is a snapshot from her role on S&TC (Natasha, Big, Carrie, Aiden):
I am so hopelessly cheesy.
