The “Decisions” Movie Premiere and Celebration of Corey Haim’s LifeApr 13th, 2011 | By Lindsay | Category: Celebrity Sightings
This past Sunday night, fellow celebrity stalker and photo-bug extraordinaire Pinky Lovejoy, from the Thinking Pink blog, invited me to do some stalking of the premiere of Corey Haim’s final movie, Decisions, at the Writers Guild Theatre in Beverly Hills. I could NOT have been more excited to attend because, as I have mentioned quite a few times before on this site, I have been a HUGE fan of Corey’s ever since 1988 when License to Drive first premiered. Because the event was also a celebration of the late actor’s life, many of his longtime friends, as well as most of the actors who starred in Decisions, were in attendance.
The Writer’s Guild Theatre is a very small venue and I just about fell over when one of the event coordinators invited Pinky, the Grim Cheaper, and me to stand INSIDE where there was a small fan area set up just off of the red carpet. So incredibly cool! And, amazingly enough, there were only about five stalkers besides ourselves there so we had fabulous access to most of the stars.
The event was being hosted by Haim’s longtime friend Corey Feldman, who I have to admit I was not at all a fan of when The Two Coreys was on the air. But I really appreciate how hard Corey has worked to honor his fallen friend by keeping his memory alive in Hollywood ever since his untimely passing. And I am very happy to report that he could NOT have been nicer in person. Corey seemed to be a genuinely kind man and took a lot of time to speak with and take pictures with each of his fans.
According to this recent EW.com article about the event, Feldman was wearing a jacket that Haim had once given him.
The premiere was mostly made up of 80’s stars, which I, of course, could NOT have been more thrilled about! I was most excited about meeting actress Kristy Swanson, whom I absolutely LOVED in the Buffy, the Vampire Slayer movie.
I have to say that it was pretty cool being able to tell her that I dressed up like her character Buffy Summers one year for Halloween back when I was in high school.
I was also floored to see singer/actor Jeremy Jordan, whom I recognized from the ending credits of the second season of Beverly Hills, 90210. For those of you out there who did not have every episode of the series recorded like I did and have no idea what on earth it is I am talking about right now, at the very end of each show Tori Spelling was shown walking up to the Peach Pit’s jukebox, pointing to a song and saying “Jeremy Jordan, all right!”, after which his video for “The Right Kind of Love” would come on the screen. Pinky later informed me that Jeremy had also starred as Guy Perkins in fave movie Never Been Kissed, which I hadn’t before realized! So incredibly cool!
I just about died when Julie McCullough, who played Mike Seaver’s (aka Kirk Cameron’s) fiancé Julie Costello during the fourth season of Growing Pains, walked in. I absolutely LOVED Julie on the show and was heartbroken when her character was written off of the series in 1990. Julie also starred as Trina, the girl who stole Steve Sanders Corvette, in the Season 1 episode of Beverly Hills, 90210 titled “Slumber Party”. Love it! Seeing so many ‘80s stars in one place put me into serious overload! I swear, if Tommy Puett had walked in, my head might have just exploded!
Also in attendance was Donna D’Errico, from Baywatch;
Nicole Eggert, from Charles in Charge;
who is seriously pregnant right now!;
John Marshall Jones from the original Melrose Place and Smart Guy;
actor Carlos Ramirez, the twin brother of actor Efren Ramirez (aka Pedro from Napoleon Dynamite);
Jarrod Schulz from the A&E show Storage War$;
and his wife Brandi Passante, who also appears on the show;
Sofia Milos from CSI: Miami, who is absolutely GORGEOUS in person;
Bai Ling, who is easily my mom’s least favorite celebrity, so I just had to get a picture with her ;
Mary Carey, the adult film actress/Celebrity Rehab star who ran for governor of California in 2003;
Francisco San Martin, who plays Dario Hernandez on Days of Our Lives;
Phoebe Price, who the GC was VERY excited about seeing as she is featured daily on his favorite blog, Dlisted;
Natasha Alam, who plays Yvetta on True Blood;
and Mike Foy, one of the stars of Decisions.
All in all it was a great event and I am so incredibly thankful that I got to be a part of it.
Big THANK YOU to Pinky Lovejoy, from the Thinking Pink blog, for inviting me to stalk the Decisions premiere!
Until next time, Happy Stalking!
