I seem to have failed to mention that I was once in bed with Jenna Jameson. Luckily, I didn't contract anything....
Anyone remember the show on MTV called "Becoming"? The show where a star's BIGGEST FAN could send in a video application telling MTV what makes them THE BIGGEST FAN and then the chosen one would get flown to LA for a few days to re-make the video and get a bunch of swag?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
Well, about ten years ago I was dating Slim Shady's BIGGEST FAN. I was a huge fan myself, but I don't think I could have pulled off resembling him in the video so I chose not to apply. Anywho, he applied and listed me as the person to contact if he was chosen (because they like to keep it a secret and surprise the winner). I got the call one day while I was at work. I was so excited for him!! I remembered in a previous episode I had seen that a girl who won got to bring her boyfriend along, so I straight up asked them if I could come along if I paid for my own plane ticket.
They said YES!!
For years and years I searched for this video on youtube and only a few months back did it surface. It's terrible quality and it's in 2 parts. The first part is the surpise (that's me in the "dancer" shorts waking him up during the surprise) and the whole first part of the episode where they show him filming all the different scenes (look for my intro around 13:13) and the second part is the video in it's entirety.
It was the most amazing experience, even thought it didn't really happen to me. I got to hang out behind the scenes for three days and made some awesome friends with the crew. Later that year we got invited back to LA for a wrap party at a bar with all of the other peeps who got to become their favorite artist. We thought maybe we would get to go backstage since he was going to be in Sac shortly after we returned home, but no such luck.
Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?
