my favorite friends are the ones that, no matter how much time has passed since we've seen each other, we can pick up right where we left off. my friend rachael is one of those friends. we met in high school and she and her twin katie have been two of my favorite people ever since. the picture above is a picture taken, in high school, of rach and i in musical rehearsal.
we haven't lived anywhere near each other ever since we graduated from high school, but we've managed to see each other and catch up a handful of times here and there. she and michael have been so great- taking time out of their busy lives to drive miles and miles just to see me perform. this is a picture of us with my brothers and sisters at newport beach last summer.
earlier this summer i flew to nyc for a call-back. my friend cy and i hung out in times square after a show one night and whose life-sized face should i see on a billboard? yes, ladies and gentleman... michael rady. rachy's michael.
michael's playing the part of jonah miller in the cw series melrose place. i've been watching the show online and he's brilliant. follow the show at cwtv.com
michael's character on melrose is engaged. i think he might get a little inspiration for the role from his real engagement to rach! aren't they adorable?
lucky guy. look at how gorgeous rachy is on the red carpet!
my favorite thing about these two is that they are two of the most grounded, kind, salt-of-the-earth people i've ever met. rae rae and michael, i love you guys! i've always known you were rock stars and i'm so excited that the rest of the world has discovered what i've known all along.
