"At Serendipity 3 in NYC, I spotted Kim Kardashian hiding behind her menu. Is she hot in real life? Yes. And she ordered the frozen hot chocolate." -- Jen
"Rita Wilson cut in line in front of me (like I wasn't even there) at Christina's in Sun Valley, Idaho. I didn't say anything because, well, it was Rita Wilson. -- Karen
"I'll show you how clueless my dad is about movie stars. My father was traveling on business and was sitting in a hotel bar having a drink after work and started talking to this guy. They talked for a couple of hours, and the guy said he was making a movie down the street. My dad came home and said does anyone know an actor by the name of Tom Cruise! He was making 'Days of Thunder'!" -- Theresa
"Spent our anniversary dinner at Provence in New York City, but then had to deal with my wife paying me no attention while hunky Richard Gere sat across from us. I did get to stare at his beautiful wife Carey Lowell, so that was a nice consolation." -- Jason
"I met Joey McIntyre at a Chinese restaurant in New York City. He signed our playbills and CDs and took a few pictures. He smelled really good!" -- Rachel
"I used to wait tables at the Green Jacket in Augusta, Georgia. I waited on just about every major golfer there is and James Brown came in a lot and was the best customer ever and gave great tips." -- Sandra
"I worked at a restaurant on Martha's Vineyard over the summer and saw the island's two big celebs everyone tends to see -- Jim Belushi and Spike Lee. Belushi was eating with his big clan, being a regular dude. Next thing I knew, he was singing a song with the bar's blues band and having a harmonica battle with the lead singer. A week later, Spike came in to get take-out. He was pretty busy on his Blackberry, but I said, 'Hey,' and told him I was about to move to Brooklyn. He asked, 'What neighborhood?' He didn't exactly get chatty, but he was nice." -- Zach

"I used to work at TGIF in DFW airport, and I had Nick Lachey come in once. Some little girl stole the straw out of his drink after he left... Weird!" -- Lorena
"While enjoying my birthday dinner at BLT Fish, I looked over at the next table and almost died. Steven Spielberg and his family and friends were eating two feet from where we were. We spent the rest of the meal trying not to stare too obviously. Of course, he picked up the tab for his large party." -- Denise
"While eating at an upscale Mexican restaurant in L.A. last year with my husband and children, Tommy Lee and a group of his friends came in and sat just a few tables away. No one in the restaurant seemed to notice or think twice about it, but I was about to pee in my pants. I wanted so bad to go over and speak to him, but just couldn't do it because I would have looked like an idiot in front of everyone. All I could do was stare nonchalantly in his direction while trying to eat my meal. The waitstaff got them in and out of there very quickly, but the whole time I tried to get my 11-year-old son and 8-year-old step daughter to do my dirty work and go try to talk to him or ask for a picture. But they wouldn't do it either. As Tommy walked out of the restaurant, I got my son to snap a few photos with my cell phone, but it was just so dark in there. None of them turned out well. Had we been anywhere else, I would not have thought twice about approaching him, but that was just not the right time or place." -- Lori
"I was walking down the street in Lahaina, Maui, in December 1994 and saw this tall guy with a blond. He looked like Howard Stern. They were walking toward me and my wife. I was going to say to him, 'Has anyone told you, that you look like Howard Stern?' But as he and his wife passed us, I realized it was Richie Sambora and Heather Locklear." -- Bernie
"Our stylist was obsessed with Elizabeth Berkley, [so we're] out to dinner that night and who was sitting there: Elizabeth Berkley! When she walked by our table on her way to the bathroom, we called her Nomi (her character in 'Showgirls'), and she stopped to talk. We told her about our stylist obsession and asked her to call him and she did. They talked for about 5 minutes. Very nice person." -- Rebecca
"I was having dinner at a Mexican Cuisine Restaurant in Nashville, TN, when Billy Gibbons of ZZ Top came in to dine. My friends were acquaintances of his, therefore Billy visited our group for some time before taking a seat of his own. He was in town doing a collaboration album with Taylor Swift and had frequented this restaurant (from my understanding) most every day for lunch between sessions. He was introduced to me and learned of my fishing career and was excited to chat about fishing! Super cool cat!" -- Sondra
"Mary Steenburgen and Ted Danson showed up at the Artcliff Diner in Vineyard Haven, MA, for breakfast while I was there with my husband. My husband kept saying that Mary was eyeing him. She seemed like she was hoping people would notice her, but Ted sat facing the wall, trying to hide." -- Mary
