I've seen so many celebrities since I've moved to New York that it's hard to keep track of. Well, not anymore, because here is LEIGH'S LIST OF CELEBRITY SIGHTINGS!
Abigail Breslin - She came with her mother to Rosa Mexicano fairly often.
Alec Baldwin from 30 Rock - Coalition for the Homeless event
Anderson Cooper - He is just EERIE in person because his skin GLOWS. I saw him twice at Jamba Juice in the Whole Foods at Columbus Circle. One of those times in gym clothes with another (gay) guy. Then I saw him at Rosa Mexicano eating with another (gay) guy. Hmmm...
Felicity Huffman from Desperate Housewives - She came into Rosa Mexicano in a hot red dress. Only, she was wearing a really bad, short haired, brown/gray WIG. And sunglasses. Inside. At night. Awwwwkwaaaaaard!
Jennifer Aniston from Friends - She was escorted to an art charity in a van behind the scenes. She had "people" to watch everyone else to protect her. I've never seen anything like it.
Martha Stewart from Martha Stewart - I went to a taping of hers (both 11/07 and 12/08).
Michael Bloomberg as mayor of New York City - I saw him at an event I was catering for Russian Americans.
Nina Garcia from Project Runway - I catered Winter Wonderland at Bronx Botanical Gardens for yuppy young rich people. (12/5/08). I catered an event for Bon Appetit and saw her again (11/08).
RenÃ©e Zellweger - She came to Jamba Juice three times while I was there. The first time, her name was "Sarah." Bitch, please. I see you.
Richard Branson - At a spa he was building. (6/09)
Richard Gere from movies - Coalition for the Homeless event
Seth Meyers from SNL - He ate at Rosa Mexicano with a girl, presumably a date. He grew a beard to "disguise" himself. Nice try, Seth.
Stone Phillips - While a waiter at Rosa Mexicano, I waited his party at a large table of 10. He actually gave me his credit card to hold to make sure he was the one to pay.
Thom Felicia from Queer Eye - I catered Winter Wonderland at Bronx Botanical Gardens for yuppy young rich people. (12/5/08).
