As most people know, I am a reality TV junkie. Seriously. I watch so much reality TV it's not funny! One of my current fixations is vh1's Confessions of a Teen Idol. The show itself is rather silly, but one of my personal teenage idol's is on that show. Want proof??
Here is a pic taken 10 years ago of my hubby and me in LAX airport with Jamie Walters (now on COATI):
Can I just say that I was utterly starstruck at this point?!? I know some of you may be thinking "who is that?" But let me tell you...I knew and I loved him!
A little background: Jamie Walters was in a movie called Shout with John Travolta. He also starred in a TV series called The Heights (my personal favorite!) which was on either before or after 90210 back in like 1991-1992. Still not ringin a bell? He also had a hit song "How Do You Talk To An Angel" which was also the theme of The Heights. Nothing, huh? Okay well, for all you 90210 fans out there-he also played Ray Pruit, Donna's abusive guitar playing beau who threw her down the stairs....DING DING DING! That got it, huh? Many people remember that character...but that is a shame.
So I find myself tuning into vh1 to see how Jamie's "return to fame" will work out. He is a firefighter EMT now with a wife and some gorgeous kiddos and he is trying to get back into the music biz. I wish him the best. And I will be tuned in to see how it all turns out!
