    They were filming a music video at the Plaza on Tuesday... never heard of Olly Murs, but I guess he won X factor some years ago. All I know his presence brought us bad luck on the craps table lol.

    Saw the chick who played Blossom with a bodyguard back in the early 1990's.

    Same trip I saw Ricki Lake.

    Played Craps with Chuck D in 2001-ish

    Somewhere around 2004 I saw Bruce Willis with one of his daughters at Wolfgang Puck in the MGM. He was taking her to a show because I later saw them standing in line to go into an auditorium.

    2002 Ervin Johnson sat next to me at a Blackjack Table in The Mirage because I was wearing a Brewers hat. Not Magic, the 6/11" for America's Team (the Milwaukee Bucks...among other teams).

    Five bona fide Superstars.

    We saw Dennis Rodman, when he was still playing and a big deal, at the Mall in Caesers. They were shutting down a Jewelry store so he could go in and shop all by himself.

    Not sure if this is a celebrity but I was talking with Martin Garrix and Afrojack (DJ's) when I checked out of Caesars on my last trip. We were all waiting outside for our transportation. Nice guys based on the 5 minute conversation we had.

    Went to Absinthe on Sunday night at the late show and sat literally right next to Bob Saget from Full House.

    I met Jean Claude Van Damme at a gasoline station in San Fernando valley at 1am like fifteen years ago.
    It was cool he bought a banana and we chatted a little as he was in front of me in line (just two of us and cashier) and he looked at my soda I was buying and he said that stuff will kill you.
    Lol

    Not Vegas but it was a rare celebrity sighting for me!


    Oh I met Fergie at south coast plaza Macys. Promoting her hand bag line or something. She is very petite ! But very proportional , way cute.



    Who else ? For someone who lives near Los Angeles I didn't really meet many.

    Oh I met mike Bibby at a McDonald's once. Point guard for once Sacramento Kings and Miami Heat.




    I would say for Vegas I met the laker girls circa 2006?
    Or was that an LA casino? I really don't remember.

    Sorry I missed you. I was there Memorial Day weekend too and played with Murray and Gates late afternoon at different times.
    They were both standing on the end near the aisle.One of the dealers kept saying Demarco this and Demarco that..............it was Gates.
    We all had a good laugh.
    Gates said it was a compliment saying he was built like a running back.He said you can call me anything just keep calling numbers.

    I've literally bumped into buff bagwell from wwe dudes biceps almost knocked me over, also saw sid vicious also from wwe in crazy horse 2, was at the Stratosphere same time John elway and tiger woods were there. Seen mr. T and Bruce Willis at the rio. Bruce Willis was throwing a tantrum punching the table knocking chips over, amazing what you can get away with if you got that kind of money.

    Bumped into Frank Thomas(Baseball HOFer) at Aria back in late March. I've stood next to/near a decent amount of future NBA and NFL guys but his sheer size was impressive.

    Oh, I totally forgot. I met Shaq at the Foundation Room back when it was private members.

    Also Holly Madison at PH and Floyd Mayweather at MGM.

    Who was that Wolf guy from that 90210 top off.. Scott Wolf? I sat next to him from Vegas to Vancouver.

    Also sat by Coolio this year on a flight from Austin to Lax. He got downgraded to economy for lax to Vegas lol

    We attended a taping of the Carson Daley show that was filmed at The Joint at the Hard Rock many years ago. The only reason we were there was because Richard Cheese and Lounge Against The Machine were the house band for that particular show. The guests were Carmen Alectra, Eliza Dushku, and Dave Navarro's band at the time.
    During her interview Carmen Alectra was talking about wearing a police uniform for the movie she was promoting. Starsky and Hutch if I remember right, and she mentioned that there was a whole lotta camel toe going on.
    After the taping a bunch of us were hanging outside when Carmen walked by. A woman next to me shouted: "Loved the interview Carmen!"
    Carmen stopped and said thank you and upon noticing the small child with the woman looked horrified. She said: "Oh God, was I too gross? I'm sorry!" before she was whisked away by her bodyguard.
    That has been my only celeb spotting. My friend met a Kardashian at a club once, but I don't consider that a celeb. :goofy:
    About the taping, I do feel it is worth noting that when the audience was encouraged to come down by the stage for Navarro's bands performance, I wound up right by where the camera was going to be filming the audience. A crew member actually came over and physically placed a couple of younger, hotter women directly in front of me until I was out of the shot. I guess they didn't want an overweight middle aged woman bringing their demographic down. :evillaugh::haha::kill:

    I don't know if he really counts as a celebrity but Victor Drai (the owner of Drai's night/dayclub) was at my craps table 2 times on my last stay at the Cromwell. I had no idea who he was but he was wearing a Drai's hat and the dealers all new him and were calling him Victor or Mr. Drai so i googled him when I went to the bathroom. Seemed like a little bit of a strange guy but kept to himself. He bought in for $2-3K both times and was pretty much just betting the hardways. He lost his buy-in pretty quick both nights i saw him.

    I saw Vince Vaughn at the MGM this past January - we were had just returned to the hotel from my sisters wedding - I was hoping we could get him to crash it!

    But, his crew swept him away up and away into box in the sports betting area...

    I always thought he was taller than that...and he really needed a nap (but don't we all in Vegas?)

    On my recent trip (two weeks ago) I was strolling around the Siegfried & Roy Secret Garden at The Mirage and saw Siegfried himself standing right next to me in the tiger part of the exhibit. I was surprised that he was actually there, as many celebrities just lend their names to places and never make an actual appearance. He was extremely nice when I approached and I asked if he would pose for a photo, which he very kindly did.

    I happen to be friends with several people that are pretty well known. I was good friends with Dan Haggerty aka Grizzly Adams. Dan died back in January from complications from cancer. He was honored in Vegas in 2012 and I just happen to be one of the presenters.

    On my trip last weekend, I saw Matt Damon and Jimmy Kimmel at the Cosmo. Think they were filming something for Jimmys show.
