Random weekend celebrity sighting

    Nashville, Saturday night. Staying at the Radisson across the street from the Opryland Hotel (which remains closed from the spring flooding.)

    Seven of us seated in the bar area at a nearby bar/restaurant watching South Carolina-Auburn game. And who's seated at the corner table not 10 feet away?

    Joyce Dewitt (Janet) and Priscilla Barnes (Terri?) of "Three's Company" fame, along with some stringy guy who later told us he had a key role in "The Devil's Rejects" and is appearing in an animated Johnny Depp film set for release in 2011 called "Rango."

    Dewitt was extremely nice. I think we 40somethings were the only ones who recognized the two women, although Barnes was hard to miss with what she was wearing, plus she's about 5-11 in heels.

    Apparently Barnes had a role in "The Devil's Rejects" and Dewitt's going to be in the next Rob Zombie film. They were all 3 were in Nashville to appear a horror film fan convention.

    Didn't Dewitt have a cameo on 8 Simple Rules several years back?

    Priscilla Barnes was a patient in the dental office where my wife used to work. She came rushing in one day, late, wearing a bright red, tight, micro-mini-dress and red pumps with 6-inch heels. She was fully made up.
    Receptionist: "Did you just come from an audition?"
    Barnes: "Uh, yeah."
    Barnes: "When I was running across the street, a guy in a Mercedes convertible slows down and yells at me, '50 bucks.'"
    Silence ......
    The dentist leans out of his office and says: "Hell, I'll give you $75."

    My wife said Barnes was one of the nicest, friendliest people that she had met in that office, which had a lot of celebrity clientele.

    I must have been mistaken, but I thought it said 'Celebrity sighting' in the title. :)

    I'd take Joyce Dewitt and Priscilla Barnes over Lindsay Lohan every day of the week

    Can I add my random celebrity sighting? Gordon Lightfoot at church this weekend. He's looking good, BTW.

    I saw Dwight Eubanks from Real Housewives of Atlanta out at a bar/restaurant one night. I was with a friend of mine, who knows EVERYONE, and he was like 'Hey, Dwight!" and Dwight came over. I was giddy. He had on vibrantly striped pants.

    I've seen Jimmy Johnson on 'Survivor' the past two weeks.
    Seemed kind of odd.
