Stars Shine at Hollywood X-Mas Parade
As Jupiter and Venus twinkled under a Crescent Moon, the Hollywood Christmas Parade went on while the Jonas Brothers had a concert at the same time at the Palladium. Traffic was a mess but who really cared while so many were enjoying the holidays.
I wanted to wear something festive, so I pulled out a funny X-Mas hat and ended wearing two catsuits with the purple one on top. Kids kept thinking I was a Huge Purple Elf. I got a kick out of that. Anyway, Prince Frederick was riding in his white Rolls we met up and he left me without any press credentials at the parade site. So I was asked over and over where my credentials were. I said I was with the Prince . After the 100th time they left me alone.
Just a few of the stars participating: David CarradineFred Willard Kyle Massey
Shirley Jones & Marty Engel Cast of Twilight Cast of Young & Restless American Idols actors comedians, high school bands, dance troupes, horse teams & a host of volunteers and staff that made it all possible.
One of the best moments of the evening was when Shirley Jones (Patridge Family) was trying to get her (Marty Engel) husband to stop yapping to the press and get into the car. Marty Engel had a brief case and it was full of candy. He gave it out to the kids around me and we all were smiling because we had never seen a brief case full of candy before.
