Can't Get Enough Of That Wonderful Duff

Gillette Event
Times Sq. Studios
11am

"Should my battery pack be getting hot event though it's not on?"

It seems that everyone who was out shooting the morning concerts spent an hour drying off their gear before this event. There was no way of getting around being soaked (heading into the air-conditioned Times Sq. Studio....hhhhmmmmm...Pneumonia.)

Once inside, photographers were places in front of the stage, and ran 2 deep. Hilary and Haylie Duff arrived, posed together, spoke together, walked together, sat together....get the point? We all thought hope was lost on solo fashions....but....then there was Troy.

I'm not sure if this guy Troy was there security (he was big enough) or publicist, but that guy knew how to run the show. "We'll pose them in three places, 20 seconds each spot, together then solo." And that's exactly what happened! He then took them around the studio, had them wave to fans outside, pose with fans (he grabbed a fans camera to take a 'photo-with' shot), sign autographs, stop for a quick shot one more time...then they were gone.

This man got more done in less than 3 minutes than I've seen done at almost EVERY event this year. Every celeb in Hollywood should hire this individual to do their PR training. But until then.......Light Em' Up!!!

I wasn't at this event but someone last week had a suggestion. When a Publicist does a GREAT job, why don't we either send them a thank you note, or a bouquet of flowers, or something to let them know we are thankful they are doing their job the way we like, which helps us all get the photos we need. Perhaps if word gets around to the PR people, they will all start to follow suit.
On another note...does anyone have an update on how A.J. is doing? Does anyone have his address? It would be a nice gesture on our part to let him know he is in our thoughts. If enough people would like to throw in whatever amount of $ they want, I would go out and get him flowers from all of us, a fruit basket, anything people think he would like. Even a card to let him know we are thinking about him. I don't know if anyone is in touch with him but if not, I am sure it would brighten his day to know he has not been forgotten.
We can discuss this at the premiere, or here.
Any thoughts?
Debbie

Of course anonimity is your choice, but this is just very wrong and not funny at all...

You should be ashamed of yourself, whoever you are...

Troy is many things to the Duffs. He is a drama coach, a handler, and perhaps security as well. he is also an exec producer on the film the Duffs are making now called "Material Girl" He also runs drama workshops for all levels of actors

Now, more on the subject, I do agree that we should let it be known when publicists do a good job and eventually, indeed, send a little thank you note with some flowers or chocolates or whatever...

This was a perfect photo op that proved that you don't need more than 20 seconds to get plenty of shots of someone when it's done the right way !!!

Oh, by the way if you guys don't see me at the premiere monday it'll probably be because I'll have tried to plug that battery pack back in to see hwat it does ;-)

...THE NEXT TIME I SEE YOU, I'LL HAVE TO GIVE YOU A DOLLAR SO YOU CAN BUY YOURSELF A SENSE OF HUMOR. A.J. THOUGHT THAT LINE WAS FUNNY.

yeah but what's with the anonymous comments on this site? you guys are too stupid to come up with aliases? no one has a real name on this that's ok but it would be easier to follow up if at least you had aliases even an alias for an alias if you feel like you are that paranoid!
