If you have ever met a very famous person, would you share with us? I have met, and been in the home of, the famous author, Pearl Buck. What a priviledge. How about you?

    Wow Pearl S. Buck? Holy Makarena. That's fantastic. But how old are you. You don't look a day over 29. haha. Yes, I certainly have. Quite a few. Oh my gosh just way so many but um haha I don't know if it's appropriate just yet nor here of all places. Oh well haha... Wow Pearl S. Buck. That is so wonderful.

    Source(s): Mostly people I knew when growing up. Some I lived or just worked with, while others, well I been trying to write a book myself for the longest time but having a bit of trouble alone with it. Mostly in the art world, publishing, fashion and entertainment industry.

    Yes, I used to work in an airport. Famous people came in every once in a while. I met Gerald Lavert, Lil' Wayne and Trina and I can't remember his name, but he played David Ruffin in the movie "The Temptations". I think his name is Leon something. He wears some tight a** clothes, but he is sexy though!!

    Hi Regina!

    I actually went to school in Burbank California with Ron Howard! Also his brother Cliff Howard- this was between Opie & Happy Days. We called him Opie (and I have to admit it was in a teasing sort of way). I have also spent the evening with Dewey Dorough who is the former sax player for the Oakridge Boys (16 years)- he is the stepfather of a friend of ours and was playing (after he left the O.R.B.) at a little supper club in our town (in TN) and we had dinner with him. What was really neat was my husbands family was in town so they got to enjoy the evening as well. This was about 7-8 years ago & they still tell all of their friends!

    I once ran into the reverend Al Sharpton. Literally. I was in a Barnes and Nobles (book store) that he happened to be shopping at with his crew. Neither of us was looking where we were going and we collided. Not hard or anything, but we both laughed and said, "Excuse me sir, I wasn't watching where I was going" at the same time, we had a little laugh, he shook my hand and we went our separate ways. He and his crew have the nicest suits I think I've ever seen!

    Dear Regina!

    Pearl S. Buck! Fantastic! I read and loved some of her books... She was a great woman and she won the Nobel prize in literature!

    I have met, many years ago, the President of my country, Brazil, and he asked me to dance with him!

    Thank God a friend of mine took a picture of such a memorable moment!

    He was a great man, the one responsible for the building of the new capital of Brazil, Brasília, in the heart of the country, in the middle of nowhere!

    God bless you!
