Hanging With Rose In SF




What a wonderful time I had in San Fran this weekend hanging with Rose Rollins and her crew. It was quite an auspicious event. The only downside to it was that we got lost trying to find our hotel, which we found out later that it was 8 minutes from the airport. We got there about 10:30pm and Rose hadn't arrived yet. The VIP line got us through rather quickly, and once we were inside...We made a B Line to the food and bar area and waited for Rose to arrive. VIP IS THE WAY TO GO!!! Rose showed up about 11:30pm and was instantly mobbed by her fans. Of course I had to get in on the action...I pushed my way to the front of the bar where she was standing--when I first got up there, she had just finished ordering drinks for her brothers, who are in the pics above. I introduced myself and asked her if she saw her birthday wishes on Greys Blog? After a pondering for a few moments--she said, with a surprised look on her face, that she remembered me. I stood there and spoke with her a bit about the Atlanta based magazine that I write for, and talked to her about doing a possible future interview with her after filming. She asked me if she could keep the magazines and of course it was no problem...I wanted her to have them. Long story short---We took pics, I met her brothers (who are absolutely ADORABLE!!!) and we had a great mini conversation. Kaye-I asked Rose when she was coming back to da ATL--she said she didn't know.
Rose is currently in Vancouver filming the last season of TLW. She's is beautiful on camera, but nothing compares to actually seeing her in person..what a lovely woman. After leaving Rose to her many adoring fans, I spotted Danny (Tila Tequila) chilling with some fanatics. I caught a cute photo opportunity with her; she was soo nice and sweet. The trip to SF was an experience I'll never forget---I met Leisha, and now Rose (My beloved Tasha & Alice)...It doesn't get any better than this.

Kaye it was sooo cool talking to Rose--It was like talking to my sister or an old buddy. She is very down-to-earth and sweet. She really is a beautiful spirit. I'm glad I met her.

Sounds awesome! Thanks for the recap.

Very nice photos Speedy! It looks like you had a terrific time.

I'm really jealous -- oops -- I meant happy (Freudian slip of the fingers) that you got the opportunity to meet Rose. You've been such a loyal "Talice" fan. It's seems only fitting that you’ve been able to meet both of them.

I hope that you're able to score your interviews. That would just be the icing on the cake.

By the way, if I weren't a married woman, I'd have to hunt down that younger brother of hers... :-)

He's a cutie!

Thanks for sharing your experience with all of us.

speedy12 said...

Oh yeah Jordan2333--I assume your talking about the taller brother. He is a cutie and I love his smile. He's the one that my friend was after all night...lolol. They are both sweethearts and just sooo loving to Rose...Their a very close knit family.

"woRk of aRt" said...

I agree he is a cutie pie.

speedy12 said...

Roses younger brothers are both 24 and 25yrs old respectively. The younger one is the partyer and the older one is the protector...Both are sooo adorable.

Kaye87 said...

I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thinks they are cute lol! Very attractive family

Work of Art--in response to your comment on Greydays blog--she has animosity towards me for some un-Godly reason that I can't explain. But we will not bring any of that negativity or ill-will to this blog. Even though this blog is to honor Leisha Hailey and her many accomplishments--We love all of our L Word actresses and participants. I thank all of you for showing love to this blog that Kaye and I started, we have been getting a great response on it and we will continue to give you TRUTHFUL AND HONEST information about you favorite LW star.

angelica said...

^^^^Well, that's weird and unfortunate. It seems like Grey is trying to imply you weren't being truthful or honest about something? Is is about Rose or the recap or what?

melinda6499 said...

ok the younger brother of hers looks like ol dude that does tyler perry plays, and i think he's on the house of paynes right? i could be wrong but tdamn that smile looks familar!! btw great pics speedy!!!

melinda6499 said...

ok not dude from house of paynes but i swear to god thats christian keyes from madea goes to jail!! i know that smile!

speedy12 said...

Angelica--to honest--I really don't know what Greys problem is..she's not giving me an explanation---I'll leave it at that. You know what Mel, now that you've mentioned it--that smile does favor that dude from Madea...hmmmmmmm. Uncanny...lolol
Thanks for coming over and checking us out.
