My chat with Robbie Rogers at Prop. 8 rally
Still recovering from yesterday and operating on about a combined eight hours of sleep over the past two days.
But what exciting times to lose sleep for!
So yesterday I was at the Prop. 8 rally in West Hollywood (I’ll have a recap later today for you) and standing in the media/VIP area with my friend Ted, an editor at Variety.
Ted has interviewed everyone in Hollywood and politics and is not the type to be star-struck. But when he noticed Robbie Rogers standing a few feet away from us, he poked me and said excitedly: ‘Isn’t that the soccer player?’
After the rally ended, we wandered backstage and as Ted went over to chat with Human Rights Campaign President Chad Griffin, I chatted up Robbie who was standing with Chad.
He wasn’t going to do interviews but he remembered we had chatted last month at The Voice Awards so he did another little interview with me to reflect on the day, on how things are going with the LA Galaxy, and how he is handling his growing fame.
