B!tch on the Street

Days and nights in New York City are tough enough without having to deal with all the sh!t this city dishes up. B!tch on the Street tells the tale of two ladies making their way through this crazy town...one freak at a time.

Celebrity Death Match...


OK, I don't have a real picture to go with this because it all happened so fast, but this is the first time I've had to be a BOTS to a "celebrity".

I was waiting on line at the Barnes and Noble on 46th and 5th when this woman came down the line saying, "Excuse me" over and over again to each person. I must note that I felt that she was saying it rudely. She brushed past me (I was second in line) and cut off the line. There were no available registers and the register watcher who tells you where to go said, "Miss, the line starts back there." She said (very annoyedly), "I just paid and this is setting off the alarms." I KNEW I knew that voice and when I looked closely, I saw that it was Susan Saint James herself! I love her! Kate and Allie! MacMillan and Wife! "You'll have to wait just a moment," the register watcher said. I was so excited! I have no idea why. I wanted to say, "I loved Kate and Allie!" but knew that would be really weird, so I just kept my trap shut and watched her.

Then, the register watcher said to the man in front of me, "Next register down to your right." The guy took off and SSJ said, "EXCUSE ME, I need to leave and can't because the security alarm is going off!" The next register opened up and I started toward it (I admit, I was nervous!). SSJ turned to me and said, "I need to see this person before you." and cut me off! The register watcher was no help at all. I replied, "I understand that, but you don't have to be so rude about it, no matter who you are!" and I let her go ahead.

B!tch didn't even give me a second look. I ended up going to the register beside her and she was all huffy and tapping her foot impatiently. She finally got her sh!t taken care of and stomped off. What a b!tch!

I still love her though!

I'll do better with the quickness of the camera phone next time! For anyone who gives a sh!t, she was wearing high-waisted jeans, a tee shirt, no makeup, and a fake a$$ Prada bag with a little teddybear on a keychain attached to it. I was like, "Nice teddybear b!tch!" but then I remembered that her son, Teddy, was killed in a horrible plane accident and felt bad. Not bad enough to not post this, but bad.

I definitely cannot read this while eating, it flew out of my mouth. Jesus. The fake Prada did it.

pqTo further clarify, I didn't say, "Nice teddybear b!tch!" out loud. Only in my head. One of my friends read this and was like, "You SAID THAT!?? To KATE??"

ewwwwwwwww. High waisted mom jeans? Those should be banned.

And I go out without makeup, but besides being an incredible beauty (ha!) I'm not a celebrity.

I was all ready to be all "Hey, give a bitch a break. She just lost her kid in an accident". Buuuut, apparently you know that. Meanie.

I have to admit. I...have...done...this. More than once. But, I'm pretty sure I wasn't wearing high-waisted jeans, so doesn't that make it a little bit better?

Holy Shit Kat!! Did this happen yesterday?? I was ON 5th, walking down from the Park, and knew there was a B&N somewhere, but my dang ole feet got wore out from walking thru the ENTIRE Met just before... so we turned at 48th St to cross back to our hotel, only then to go home and google the address and learned I was Inches away from it. What time did this happen?? I woulda been there at about 4:00 if I'd made it.
That's a wicked good story. I didn't see ONE dang ole celeb in my three days in the City - except for Julia of course. I thought her play was awesome.
I hear what you're saying about wanting to be snarky about that bear on her purse, but am glad you refrained. I've seen her on Oprah twice now talking about all that, and possible bitchy personality aside, what a horrible thing to have happened.

Am cursing my lazy ass for not hoofing it on down to BN now... I coulda seen the SSJ AND The Kat! ;)

I always did like the uptight one better.

I am impressed you recognized her. I saw her pic and was like... "who is that again??" But hey... I was just in NY for a week and I personally saw this very same situation happen like four times. Only... the people weren't celebs. They were just regular a$$holes.

I'm glad you said that SSJ was Kate, up til then, I was like "who?".

Also, it does suck & it's not entirely her fault her thing set off the alarm, but she really didn't have to be such a crap-head about it.

And when I go out w/out makeup to pick up something from the store, I at least keep my sunglasses on & wear lipstick.

I'm sorry about her son too and I'm sure she's still in mourning but DAMN bitch....step off!!!

Proud of you.

Oh freaky! I remember seeing her and her family on Oprah talking about the plane crash that killed her son. Very sad. I'm not sure that excuses the rudeness and "mom" jeans though!
