People Gazing with Getty

I have a bit of an addiction. Along with chocolate chip cookies with walnuts and drugstore eyshadow, I can't seem to stay away from the Getty Images entertainment photos section.

It's not Britney Spears, Tom Cruise or the latest Will Smith premiere that I log on for. It is those people in the background, immortalized in a flash on the red carpet following the whirlwind that was Eva Longoria or Beyonce. That's where the real stories are, the most cutting edge fashion, the real spirit of the party.

Where else can you find a bohemian pro-football player or a New-York socialite that resembles Kelly, your long-lost middle-school homegirl? I can't tell you how many minutes I have spent of my life browsing through photos, creating short stories in my mind (some that have even inspired scenes or feature length scripts) based on a handbag carried by a struggling actress or the intoxicated woman being propped up for a pose with her date.

Speaking of the bohemian pro-baller and New York socialite just check below to catch a glimpse of them: Dhani Jones (of the Philadelphia Eagles) at a Star Wars premiere and Genevieve Jones around town.
