A few of my friends are in these shots and I want to make sure it’s ok with them to be on another site besides GMMR….thank you kindly)

I know that there’s not way that I can properly express to you how much fun I’ve had over the past two days. As a TV lover it’s been one hell of a ride. I want to thank the people that made yesterday happen…you know who you are 🙂

Last night’s ABC Upfront after party was such a blast! Stars everywhere you looked. ABC had the cast from their top shows in attendance ready to schmooze with the advertising execs…and have a little fun. I tried my best to get a few shots of some of our favorite stars.

Having missed the group shots of the cast of THE OFFICE and HEROES on Monday night, I didn’t want to miss out on the ABC pics last night. I had a game plan which I put into play right away…and by right away I mean right after I hit the bar.

Actually it was on my way to the bar where I ran into the stunning (and newly engaged) Kate Walsh. Yowza that woman is hot!! After passing Kate I looked across to the other side of the car to see Jerry O’Connell and Josh Holloway grabbing some drinks themselves. Seriously? Seriously!

The Cast of Grey’s Anatomy
Ok so with a drink in hand it was time to get down to business. I made my way over to the cast of GREY’S ANATOMY. In attendance and looking fab were The Chief (James Pickens Jr.), Dr. Bailey (Chandra Wilson), Alex (Justin Chambers), Callie (Sara Ramirez), Christina (Sandra Oh), Mark/McSteamy (Eric Dane), and Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). My friend Kelly and my new friend Erica wasted no time greeting the cast and getting ready for our groups shots. I had some business to take care of first, and that involved asking Ellen Pompeo to switch places with me so I could snuggle up with McSteamy. I’m no dummy. Ellen kindly allowed me my moment and I got to take a pic with McSteamy by my side. Sigh!

The Cast of Private Practice
Next up was the cast of the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off, PRIVATE PRACTICE. And yes, Taye Diggs was in the house!!! Taye has been on the top of my swoon worthy guy list for years, so this was a special moment…for him to I’m sure 😉 Joining Taye were his Private Practice co-stars Kate Walsh, Amy Brennerman, Paul Adelstein, Merrin Dungey and Chris Lowell. Once again I took full advantage of my situation and talked my way into standing with Chris Lowell and Taye Diggs. Yup, I have no shame.

After spending time in line waiting for Grey’s and PP, I was afraid I was losing out on precious time hunting for, um, I mean looking for Michael Vartan. Oh yes, Vartan was in the house. But as much as it pains me to say it, I didn’t get to meet him. Hell I didn’t even see him from afar. By the time I made it to the other side of the room he had already left. Dang!!

Stars of Ugly Betty
With no Vartan in sight, I started looking for the other Michael I was hoping to meet – UGLY BETTY’s Michael Urie (Marc). But again, just as luck would have it, Michael and many of the other Ugly Betty cast members were gone by the time I got over there. I did snag a pic with the utterly FAB Becki Newton (Amanda) and the legendary Judith Light (Clare Meade) as well as little Mark Indelicato (Justin) who I congratulated on his fantastic song and dance performance at the upfronts (teeny tiny video snippets are coming soon). Eric Mabius, Ana Ortiz, and Tony Plana were also spotted but I didn’t get a chance to get a picture.

Although I didn’t get to meet many of them, there were just a ton of stars on hand. I passed by countless including the casts of Brothers & Sisters, Desperate Housewives, Boston Legal, October Road…so many it’s hard to even remember them all. Just a kick ass night…and one I won’t soon forget.

    Did you get to ask Chris Lowell about Veronica Mars? Would he be back, etc.?

    Yeah, I know the chances of him returning are slim to none, especially with the posed revamp, but I like him more than Logan

    Ok, GMMR, I am seriously jealous. You have now met and taken pics with two guys on my “list”, Jkras and Taye. I guess its ok though cause I don’t know if my marriage would last if I met those two ;o)

  3. Emily on May 16th, 2007 7:37 pm

    Wow, these pics are great!! Chris Lowell’s adorableness is off the charts! His character on Private Practice seems so different from my sweetie Piz but at least we’ll get to see him next year!

    You’re a lucky lady GMMR.

  4. JD on May 16th, 2007 8:03 pm

    Oh man I’m so jealous right now! Chris Lowell looks way cuter than he does on TV! Anyway I’m going to miss Piz because on private Practice he just kinda seems like candy. Oh well you take it where you can get it. Hopefully they flesh out his charecter more.

  5. Emily on May 16th, 2007 8:07 pm

    Also, is Sara Ramirez as gorgeous in person as she seems on TV?

  6. Ashley on May 16th, 2007 9:44 pm

    you lucky girl, you got to meet my two favorite celebrities Kate Walsh and Eric Dane and on the same night too.

  7. Jo on May 16th, 2007 10:14 pm

    Dude. You’re standing next to McSteamy. And Piz! You rock. those are awesome.

    I love your first pic because Walsh isn’t with GA cast.
    Ellen, Sandra, Sara, Chandra, Justin are beautiful!
    I love them!

  9. Sus on May 17th, 2007 6:36 am

    I swear, Sara Ramirez is a goddess…especially in that dress.

    I was about to say that this is your second time meeting Chris Lowell but then I remembered…he wasn’t in the cast when you visited the set!!! 😉

    I’ll say it again…you are soooooo lucky!

  10. Clare on May 17th, 2007 6:41 am

    OH MY GOD Kath!!! I just saw these…those pics are CRAZY!! Can’t believe that’s you with McSteamy, and everybody …wheeee!

  11. duckyxdale on May 17th, 2007 9:44 am

    Kath, could Sandra Oh look less enthused to have you siddled up next to her? Kidding. She looks so over the whole pics line.

    Love the pics and yes, the full clear non-cell phone version of you and Piz is – wait for it… AWESOME!

  12. duckyxdale on May 17th, 2007 9:47 am

    Wait, are you conducting the Private Practice crew in a sing a long?

    PS- Tim Daly is looking hot as hell.

  13. Jess on May 17th, 2007 10:32 am

    Kath, I still can’t believe you met the #1 man on my “list”! Even though I’m married and knocked up, I would have attacked and ravaged him had I been there. Especially with those glasses…I’m a sucker for the “I’m hot but kind of a nerd” look. 🙂

  14. GMMR on May 17th, 2007 10:39 am

    Jess – I was thinking of you the ENTIRE time I was with Taye. I wish you were there to see him.
