Well, one Oscar winner (Patty Duke) plus plenty of offbeat, appreciated stars of every medium there is, all converging at the Chiller Theatre autograph show out in Parsippany.

It happened, and I was there, greeting them all for this week's column.

You'll read what Patty Duke says Neely O'Hara would be doing if alive today--i.e., what type of reality show.

What Todd Bridges says about his sobriety.

What Mark Lester told me about being Michael Jackson's sperm donor. ("Beat it, beat it, beat it....")

Als included are my talks with Barry Bostwick, Tia Carrere, Debbie Gibson, and Jay North, plus glimpses at Lorenzo Lamas and Antonio Sabato Jr.

Trust me, we're talking stars.

Michael as Neil Young sang: "Don't let it bring you down, it's only castles burning, just find someone who's "TURNING!" and you may come around."

A MONTH??? I filed this less than two weeks after it happened and now it's run. Last week, I ran an interview with Julianne Moore, which was time sensitive, as it was tied to a movie of hers. Also, I may be a little saucy in my writing but my appreciation for the majority of my subjects definitely shows.

Also. Is there really a need for the rude and obnoxious way you paint those you "interviewed?".

You post this a MONTH after the convention. Pretty lazy "reporting".

Patty Duke/Neely O'Hara has white hair? She can now play Helen Lawson in a "Dolls" remake!

And your comment,"Consider yourself one of the family" was di-VOON! You some BAD, Mr. Musto!

Agree about "Call Me" - still holds up as the blueprint for celeb bios.  Also "Shelley - Also Known As Shirley" - love the new hairstyle & red glasses.  Great shot of her!  "You're supposed to be my agent!"

I love here. One of the best celeb autobio ever! ("Call Me Anna").
