I’ve been getting questioned from fans, friends, and others in the business asking me how in the world I ended up at the Golden Globes last weekend. Yes, it is a hard event to get into. So how did I get there??? I’ll tell you. Well.. it all started almost 14 years ago, as I was headed to a shoot in West Palm, Florida. I was crossing a road with construction and was running in heels to make it across before it was too late. There was a man also crossing in a suit. In true Christina Carter fashion I wrapped my arm around his and only three words came out ..”Wait for me!!” To say the least, He was quite shocked to find me on his arm. I thanked him for saving my life..lol..as I got a text that my shoot was delayed, so we decided to grab a drink. We spent an hour laughing and joking about what had just occurred and decided to meet for dinner later. I told him I wanted to buy him dinner. He laughed.. I had no idea why at the time. Now I realize how entertaining it must have been then that a girl like me wanted to buy such a successful man dinner at a fancy restaurant. Since that day, Michael and I have been the best of friends. Over the years we called each other about kid problems, met all over the country for dinners, tennis and spa days. If it wasn’t for him, there is a lot of things I would never had seen or done. You never know who you will pick up on the street that may change your life.
Anyway, Michaels friend runs InStyle magazine and invited him to the event, plus a date. So of course he called me. There was no way I was saying no to a once in a lifetime chance. I’m so glad I didn’t, it simply feels like it was a dream. Usually am not someone who gets star struck, but with so many HUGE stars in the same room with me, talking with me, standing next to me… I must say… I was speechless!!! Particularly when Sylvester Stallone came up and stood next to me… I swear the blood dropped to my feet and the only thing I could focus on was not passing out. Another was the crazy convo with Sofia Vegara… Kevin (InStyle mag) wanted wanted to take a picture with her like he did 3 yrs ago. I went with him to talk to her. I thought she was totally joking when she said she was not going to take a picture with him again because she would never look as good again as she did 3 years ago. I was like.. your joking right? She said..no, he’s just going to put them beside each other and compare them! That’s when I realized even the biggest beautiful stars worry about that kind of shit. I also decided from that moment on that I would take pics with everyone…because Kevin was truly brokenhearted.
PS.. Ryan Reynolds looks even hotter in person!!
So there you have it!!
See you all at AVN this week, I hope!!
