How 'bout THIS For Hollywood & Politics?!Views: 860

Linda J. Alexander http://www.lindajalexander.net

Hi Folks:

Now that I've "released" this to the cosmic stratosphere, I have to share. On February 22 I received a voicemail on my cell phone from a man who said he was Bobby Shriver. Sure, there are more than 1 but the voice was somehow familiar & I was fairly certain it was THE Bobby Shriver.

The bad news: it was a wrong number. Imagine that. He was calling someone in Los Angeles, & he dialed a Washington, DC area code . He left a message, though not embarrassing, it was detailed & personal. He included his number & asked for a call back.

While that's weird enough, that same day I rec'd another wrong number message on my cell phone. It was from the ofc of a movie star agent in NYC (Katie Holmes' agent, actually, though the call didn't mention her), callng about "the event," (same term Bobby used), & said she needed information. She left her e-mail address.

What ARE the odds?! I can't resist a chance to do research so after some digging, I found that Bobby was calling about his new "Project Red" effort. Apparently the agent--from Creative Artists Agency, no less--was probably calling about the same "event."

Somehow, some way, my cell number w/a Washington area code was being given out for 2 different people, one in Los Angeles & 1 in NYC, for the same event.

I found this all delightfully engaging. As an author who just sold a book on Robert Taylor, movie star, & his involvement in the HUAC hearings-—I couldn’t let this slide. It’s all intriguing enough to use as the premise for another book!

I e-mailed the agent & called Bobby. What the heck? I didn't speak w/Bobby but did chat w/his assistant who thought it hysterically funny. Maybe he’ll pass my message on to Bobby over dinner & they’ll both get a good laugh. I told him if Bobby ever just wants to talk, he has my number!

I'm gonna store his # in my speed dial!


Blessings -- Linda

Linda, you ended up on an interesting list. Odds are that this will happen again. Hmmmm, wonder what it will be about next time?

Interesting indeed.

Hopefully Rod Serling doesn't come out from behind a door and start saying, "Linda Alexander, novelist extraordinaire. One day, she received two unusual phone calls that were thought to be no more than coincidental, but little did she know, she was heading into the twilight zone..."

Seriously, it is amazing how things just suddenly come together better than any best made plans ever could.

The Universe has a strange way of providing you with what you need when you need it.

Send them both comps of your book and let this unfold a little further just to see what happens. What have you got to lose.

Thx all, for the great commentary. This WAS a wild experience. I've kept these folks numbers (of course I have!!) & I'm not finished w/them. The "Universe," indeed, will help me see to that.

And Glenn, great idea. I want to somehow keep that CAA agent in my sites for my book. Who knows?!
