Spotted: Gossip Girl edition

If you guessed that I saw a Gossip Girl star then you are correct! I haven't even been in New York 24 hours and I have had 2 celeb sightings!

My friends and I stopped into In God We Trust. The store is small and while I was browsing the racks I overheard the girl next to me talking. I thought she sounded familiar but was intent on finding something to wear to the Tuesday night meetup. The girl was trying to translate a word in Spanish. I told her "I think the word is..." and smiled so she didn't think I was some know it all eavesdropping. Well the girl was BLA*KE LIVE*LY! She smiled back and explained that she was searching for the slang version of this word (still not clear why but whatever). At this point I am thinking to myself: you and your big mouth should have stayed quiet! So then M came over with her iphone (remember-small store so she heard our convo) and we searched online (Bl*ake suggested some sites and so did her friend) but we couldn't find anything. My friends had NO CLUE who she was until later when we left and I told them. Bl*ake looked great and I couldn't believe how tall she is (rare for hollywood)! About my height, 5'10, (and I am pretty sure she wasn't wearing heels).

I am not sure if the girl at the cash register didn't recognize her or was just playing it cool but she asked Bl*ake what her name was when she was ordering something.
(oh and this was about 10 minutes after we saw Kir*sten Dun*st walk past us)

This was definitely a great way to start my weekend. Let's hope I see Blair and Chuck too ;)

  4. OMG...I'm so jealous! You played it SO. COOL. I would have been all "ummmm Blake, can we get a picture?"

  5. Wow that's pretty neat. She probably really appreciated your playing it cool and not hanging over her like a normal fan would. It must be hard getting all that attention, I don't understand how celebrities cope.

  23. Oh my gosh! And you talked to her too!

    I'm surprised she's that tall. Most celebs are much shorter than you think when you see them in-person.
