When Celebrities Tweet You

This past weekend I attended a Work-at-Home expo in Cherry Hill, NJ.  I got through the event in about an hour, and I couldn't justify sticking around another two hours to see the guest speakers Simon Van Kempen and Alex McCord of the reality show Real Housewives of New York.  They're out promoting their new book, Little Kids, Big City: Tales from a Real House in New York City, and this was one stop on their tour.  (I wonder if they'd be interested in a blog review?).  I really, really wanted to meet them, but I already had mommy guilt syndrome by missing out on Sunday morning family time.

I'm hopelessly addicted to all Real Housewives shows, to my husband's dismay.  He absolutely hates reality television.  Do any of your watch this show?  I admit that last season I was not a big fan of Alex and Simon, but I think this season we're getting a clearer picture of everyone's personalities, and I'm really liking them.

Again, I was sad to be missing out on an opportunity to meet the couple, so I took to twitter to vent my frustration and I included @ messages to them while I was at it.  Wouldn't you know that I got tweets back from both of them later in the day?  I know that the personalities on Real Housewives might not qualify as celebrities in everyone's book (so to speak), but I was still pretty elated to get tweets from Simon and Alex.

Q: Have any of you received tweets from any celebrities?  I'd love to hear about it!

  1. That is really cool. I got a tweet from Martha Stewart! How awesome is that?? She thanked me for sharing about her book I was trying to win.

  2. I wish! I haven't been on twitter long though, and I'm still not quite sure I understand it all. I'm getting there though! :)

  4. Yes I have, a couple of times actually. I'm a huge fan of the group New Kids on the Block and I have been tweeted by a couple of the members of the band (and a TON of DMs from one of them). In fact, thanks to twitter I can now call one of them a good friend. I've received a couple of others as well. Love twitter!!
