Summer in the Hamptons with Jon Bon Jovi
Every summer my family and I heads to East Hampton to visit with friends and family. You aren't suprised when you see Martha Stewart in town shopping, or Kate Hudson arriving for dinner at Nick and Tony as we were leaving or Ed Burns and Christy Turlington dining with Ed's parents at the table next to you at Boswick's (they were very cute and affectionate), but my all time favorite celebrity encounter was with Jon Bon Jovi a couple years back.
Jon has a house a couple blocks from Main Beach in East Hampton and he is always there with his family. I have seen him on many occasions and some people have gone up and asked for an autograph or picture but he turns them down (understandable since he is trying to enjoy a vacation with his family). As I woke up from a little snooze on the beach I look up to find my husband down by the water talking with Jon Bon Jovi(who he didn't reconize or know who he was) and he was playing with his son while my husband was playing with our daughter. I quickly grabbed my camera to take a shot from far away ( I didn't want him to get mad at me for invading his privacy). I quickly put my camera away to go down and join them. They were just chatting about sports, the weather and water temp.- simple small talk and then they all started heading into the water (his wife was already in the water with thier other kid). I am scared of the water but I couldn't resist the chance to get this close to Jon Bon Jovi so I went into the water slowly- paying all my attention to Jon and where he was going, what he was doing and saying - I forgot to watch the incoming waves and got totally taken out! I landed so hard that the shells cut me up and I was a bloody mess. My husband helped me up and when I told him who he was talking to he didn't beleive me. He was suprised that I knew right away who he was just by looking at the tatoos!
Check out this action shot! That is Jon lifting his son (in the blue) up over a wave- pretty funny face he is making huh.
