I met former NZ Idol host and now entertainment reporter to the stars Dominic Bowden in West Hollywood and cadged a ride into his world of celebrity.
I was staying at Sunset Marquis Hotel and coincidentally so was American Idol finalist and now super-celeb Chris Daughtry. I saw him ambling about the place and of course looked down every time he walked near like a 15 year old with a little crush. Sunset Marquis has its own recording studio and is the hangout of anyone who’s anyone remotely connected to the music business.
But quite frankly, this brush with fame was the closest I got as Dom’s celebrity tours of LA could do with just a little polish. Have a look at the original version of my video that ran on TVNZ Breakfast here:
