Old-School Celeb Sighting at Andaz 5th Avenue
Listen here, you don't have to admit it, but we know at some point you watched Beverly Hills 90210. And for most of us, whether we secretly lusted for Dillon ( Luke Perry) or Brandon (Jason Priestley, but were stuck with a David Silver-type (Brian Austin Green), many of us were not Kelly's or Brenda's either. In fact, we were the Andrea Zuckerman's, and she, or rather Gabrielle Carteris, just happened to be in one of our favorite hotels, New York's Andaz 5th Avenue.
Now we know this place is a hot spot for bold names--everyone from Flo Rida to Kate Hudson comes here at one point or another, but it was refreshing to hear a throwback name making an appearance. We wanted to reach for our AquaNet, don some Bass Weejuns, tuck and roll up our jeans in that weird way (you know what we mean) and run down for an autograph.
One of our favorite HC tipsters was lunching at the Andaz when she realized she was smack dab next to our bespeckled babe--and she was, wasn't she, in that sorta librarian type of way? Always looking wiser than her years? And now we see she's 52 years old and we're a tad freaked out by that, because that means y'all are getting old, friends.
When asked if she was still wearing her glasses, the answer was a huge "Yes!". So, it's nice to know that geeks like us still rock our spectacles, even when we're grown, and we'll do it in cool ass cities and hotels, too!
Cheers to you, Andrea-slash-Gabrielle!
