Zoe can go fuck herself. Because I have a new Best Friend Forever!
Eve and I went to the GavinWatch launch party at El Rio last night, and upon arrival, N Judah instantly found us and announced that Dan Noyes was in the house.
“Oh god, I write publicly about his excessive mascara use.”
“No, no. He’s cool.”
“He’s gonna I-Team me. I know it.”
None the less, we were immediately led to Dan, standing beneath a colorfully lit tree, chatting with his myriad of fans and glowing like the golden boy of local news that he is.
I wasn’t totally scared of the wrath of Dan and his cameras because I was with Eve, who, if anyone dared to question our ‘work’, would gladly and loudly tell them to go fuck themselves. Some people have those WWJD? bracelets. I’m all WWED?
Anyway, I stuck my hand out at Dan and said, “I’m Beth.”
“Beth! Give me a hug!”
OMG. Embraced by Dan.
Even better, after ‘bustin’ my chops’ about making fun of his excessive make-up use, he agreed to let me tour Channel 7! AND write about it for the Culture Blog!
Um, I highly doubt Ross and Andy get scoops like that shit.
Because they are not BFF with Dan Noyes.
OMG. BFF with Dan.
Needless to say, total celeb that he is, everyone wanted to talk with Dan. But as the evening wore on, I found my BFF again and Tony and I stopped to chat with him. Much later as we walked to the car, Eve asked me, “What was that animated performance Dan Noyes was doing for you in the middle of the patio?”
Oh, wait until you get a load of this.
So Dan’s, all, “If you want to come on a night that I anchor, it’s kind of crazy in the studio, but probably more interesting than just a tour.”
“Yeah, I know, Dan. I’ve seen Broadcast News.”
“Beth! I was in that movie!”
It was all I could do to stop myself from doing the Elaine Benes “Shut up!” shove.
My BFF? Yeah, he’s an extra in one of my top 5 movies of all time. He even re-enacted his scene for us.
OMG. Thespian Dan.
Dan had this awesome story of how William Hurt went ballistic and stormed off the set and they had to shut down shooting for the day. I was all, “I always knew William Hurt was a douchebag.” And Dan was all, “For serious.” (I’m paraphrasing. Drinks were $2.50.)
I promised Dan that when I came to Channel 7, I’d behave. “Relax, Dan. I’m a good girl, a gal’s gal, a broad’s broad, a dame’s dame.”
OMG. Laughing Dan.
Anyway, Dan gave me his super secret cell number, and I get to call him on it to schedule my big tour. As I left, I considered announcing to my friends, “Hey, anyone wanna crank call Dan Noyes at 3am?”
But then I asked myself, WWDD?
