Hello Celine's Maniacs, it's your Shalimar again.

Great News! Diva Duets was a hit. I entered the MGM casino at 3:30 PM, March 22, 2003. A man approached me with tickets and I bought the ticket for $20, but as we started talking he was acting a little suspicious so I asked if the ticket was legit. When I asked him to wait in line with me to see if I could get in, he hesitated and made some excuses, but he later offered me a refund so I agreed.

I left that area and went straight to the red carpet, the stars were working in my favor, no later then five minutes I was behind the ropes. I was with the mass media, photographers, reporters, and even Entertainment Tonight was there! I was playing the side kick reporter for a photographer named Mirek, he was very nice. I was with the media at the red carpet taking pictures of the celebrities, watching them roll in and out. Beyonce from Destiny’s Child was one of the last celebrities, and the media started packing up. I was like, “No, where’s Celine?” Merik said “I guess she’s not coming.” So I asked him if I could have his press pass and he said “Sure.” You never seen me put something on so fast, and I thanked him and we said our good-byes.

I walked away from the red carpet and a man (photographer) approached me saying, “I saw everything you did.” He asked if I took any pictures and I said yes and we started talking. We went to the back of the building where some celebrities can sneak in if they don’t want to get interviewed. The man told me not to be shy and act like you own the place, so I did. When I walked through it was like God was letting me have my moment with Celine again. She was right there less then ten feet away and as I started walking closer that distance started to diminish. She was in a beautiful pink DIVA dress getting interviewed by Sharon Osbourne. I had missed the interview so I don’t know what they talked about. Celine stood up and came towards where I was because Rene was standing next to me. I started taking pictures of Celine, there was a wall where she was at and she started posing against it. She was professional, elegant, and she was stunning.

She went to talk with a young girl who was the finalist on Starsearch. Celine said, She is a powerful singer and she likes the way she sings. The girl was totally amazed, she had a big smile on her face. Celine held her face, gave her a hug and a kiss. I said. “Celine hello!!” Then I leaned in towards her and she came towards me as if I were going to tell her a secret, but I said, “I’m Shalimar, do you remember me from perfume night?” “She replied “Oh yes!” I told her “You also signed a picture for me when you were back stage.” She was leaving to head down to the Colosseum, so I extended my arms and gave her a hug and we gave each other a kiss on the cheek. That was great because I didn’t get to do that the last time. She had to rush out, because as we all know she was performing at the Colosseum, what a trooper. :)

I went back to the MGM arena and when I got there a man asked me if I needed a ticket, I said “YES” and he gave it to me for FREE. I don’t even know where my seat was, I just went straight down to floor seats and took the best seats I could find. I had missed Celine’s performance, but I would not have given up my experience for the world, because I had a one on one chat with Celine. For all you Celine Fans, we all know this doesn’t happen very often. I talked to a girl who was sitting above me and she did say that the song went, “Have You Ever Been In Love.”.

Well I will leave you for now so I can re-run this experience in my head.
VIVA Las Vegas, Shalimar

[Thank you very much Shalimar for this amazing report!!!
