The stop for letter F on my A-Z tour of New Jersey is going to be a little different. Instead of highlighting famous places, I'd like to let everyone in on a little secret about New Jersey. Many people knock it, but did you know how many famous people live in the state of New Jersey? For such a tiny state, it's incredible how many "stars" have homes here. It's a real eye-opener.
These four don't live here full time- but all of them have NJ homes and spend a significant amount of time in the Garden State: Katie Holmes, Oprah Winfrey, Cher and Warren Buffet
Here is a list of some famous NJ residents (I am sure there are more and I left some out):
Mary J. Blige
Sean Combs a/k/a P. Diddy
Kimora Lee Simmons
I could go on and on with this list. Of course, then I could list those stars who were born in New Jersey- like, Bon Jovi, Bruce Springstein and Tom Cruise (but I don't like counting him, lol).
It's funny, I used to live on the West Coast. I have spotted a celebrity or two while living in California. They always had a bunch of paparazzi or people buzzing around them. The stars on the West Coast almost seemed resigned to the fact that they will be interrupted at lunch or out and about running their errands. Living on the East Coast, I've spied just as many celebs here. The only difference being no one seems to give them as much attention. Especially because on the East Coast, everyone is always in a mad hurry. And not very polite. We're more like, "Oh, is that a celebrity over there? That's freaking great, now move it along because you're blocking traffic!" Ha.

Now, really, about me: I bring the crazy wherever I go, so I've been told...I make fun of myself more than anyone else ever could. I hate: the awkward silence in elevators, watches with no numbers, picky eaters, Cancer and legalism. I love: coffee, stalking Hugh Jackman, my Spanx, COMMENTS, sarcasm and writing: Middle Grade, NA, YA Paranormal and Urban Fantasy.
