I actually have met her twice. And she is just as lovely in person.
I have another pic where she looks even better but there’s no John Legend faux photobomb.
The year was 1995. Or maybe it was 1996. Perhaps my memory is fuzzy on that detail because it’s so clear on the rest.
I was young and fresh. Sort of cute maybe, but not cosmopolitan. My Scranton roots showed. I lived in Manhattan‘s Gramercy Park neighborhood where my rent was $950 per month and my entry-level salary was $25,000 per year. I was poor but somehow unconcerned, a combination of parental subsidies and youthful bluster-slash-cluelessness.
I took a second job working part-time at the Broadway location of Equinox checking IDs for the cheaper membership as well as the extra money. Once I checked in Michael J. Fox, but didn’t realize until he had proceeded through the turnstile. It was only when his member photo popped up on my computer monitor, that I said “Oh” aloud, recognizing him. He was so little in person.
I used the little bit of Equinox cash I earned to purchase personal training sessions. Of course.
Would it be weird for me to say that I want to be Jen Peros when I grow up? Given that I’m older than her, yeah probably. But still!
Jen is a reporter for US Weekly. Yes, she makes a living investigating celebrity news, interviewing stars and going on television to share the latest scoops. Oh, and she met my preteen crush Rick Springfield.
Jealous? I think I am.
