Last Friday night, while standing at the bar at Breakwater, The Island News’ Happy Wino Columnist Terry Sweeney got “a call from Hollywood” asking him to guest star in the hit ABC Family sit-com “Baby Daddy” the following week. So Terry and myself were on a plane heading to Los Angeles the next morning at 5 a.m. (Won’t do a flight that early again. Whew!) For those of you who don’t know, Terry is an alumnus of “Saturday Night Live” (he was famous in the 80’s for his imitation of Nancy Reagan) and has guest starred on numerous sit-coms such as “Seinfeld” and “Family Matters” before moving to Beaufort.
L.A. is beautiful and sunny this time of year (not as beautiful as Beaufort though!) and we arrived in time to experience the hustle and bustle of limos headed to the Golden Globes, taking place just a few blocks away from where we are staying. Local news here reported that because of the crowds, commodes were stopped up at the Golden Globes and a pipe had broken and sewage was flowing down the red carpet. Apparently, actresses had to hike up their designers gowns to wade through it! They didn’t show you THAT part on TV! Stay tuned for more from Hollywood next week.
