Juilliard & Celebrities

Evidently, I made up for NOT taking pictures on day two of our NYC trip by taking WAY too many on day three! As a result, I am breaking day three down into two separate posts.

We began the day with a tour of Juilliard. I could ramble on for days about how amazing the facility is, but suffice it to say that we were IMPRESSED! Did I mention that they only accept 6% of all applicants??

After touring Juilliard, we had a couple of hours before we were scheduled to tour the Metropolitan Opera. There were not many places to eat in that immediate area, but we were fortunate enough to stumble across THIS gem...




Snow White, Cool Breeze and I were munching away on our burgers and onion straws when we realized that we were sitting next to a couple of celebrities...



Hoda Kotb, Cool Breeze, Kathie Lee Gifford


Hoda Kotb & Kathie Lee Gifford were kind enough to pose for a couple of photos with us. I'm confident it's because I shared my onion straws with them. Nothin' says lovin' like onion straws!!


Hoda Kotb, BHE, Cool Breeze, Snow White, Kathie Lee Gifford

Those two ladies could NOT have been any nicer!!! Our server commented that most celebrities are NOT that willing to mingle with the peons!! Must have been our lucky day:)


The three of us sat back and basked in the celebrity glow until it was time to head to The Met. My next post will be nothing but photos from that tour!


Happy Monday!

That is cool. Did Kathy Lee act kooky like she does on TV?

Big Hair Envy said...

TG - NO. Kathie Lee had a LOUD laugh, but she didn't act ditzy like she does on tv. Just an everyday, BEAUTIFUL, woman!

Kathie Lee looks beautiful -- and it just kills me to say that. My goodness, how tall are those women?

Big Hair Envy said...

HAHAHA! It killed me to have to report that Kathie Lee was not only beautiful, but NICE!!! I have to give credit where it's due:)

I didn't notice, but Cool Breeze informed me that they were both wearing 6 inch heels!
