My Life Stalking the D-List*

(*with no offense intended to the occupants thereof, I just find it funny how excited I get over minor St. Louis celebrities)

Just to prove it's not all wannabe hipster musicians up in here, I should duly report my flight home from LA last evening with KSDK's Randy Jackson aboard: he seemed engaged in animated conversation with a row-mate most of the 3.5-hour flight. And the man is remarkably tan, whether from a sojourn in sunny California or the fake bake we may never know.

I wasn't the only one wowed by proximity to what passes for fame, television presence: the NASCAR-hatted dude sitting near me kept threatening to "just walk up to 'im and say, 'What's in the news today, Randy Jackson, dude?'" Incisive commentary, that.

Wow. Just imagine if you'd spotted an actual celebrity in LA.

My bet? That tan's a spray on. Just like Larry Connors' hair.

I had a Randy Sighting several years ago ..... he was very very very tan then too. My $ is on fake bake.

While interviewing Pete Rothschild at a CWE cafe about three years ago, Randy Jackson walked in, greeted Pete and... was tan.

In a recent article about Mr. Jackson's hair, the editors of a local weekly newspaper noted:

"It seems entirely possible to run into him at Home Depot, buying some PVC pipe for a pond he's making in his backyard."

Oddly enough, his coppertone went unmentioned.
