Question: Last Thursday my partner, Dan, and I were walking eastward on 47th Street toward 6th Avenue and I saw you walking the other way. I said to Dan, "That was Michael Ausiello from TV Guide," and he said, "You mean the one who grimaced at us?" What's the deal?

Answer: What, are famous people not allowed to have a bad day? Sigh... Now, I don't specifically remember what was going through my mind at the time, but I probably saw you guys closing in on me and panicked. You have to remember, it's only been a few weeks since I had that frightening run-in with a stalker in Harrisburg, Pa., so I'm still a little on edge. Don't take it personally.
