Bill Maher

So...Bill Maher was in my club tonight. I figured he would be a dick, but my friend convinced me to go over there and say hi with her. We went over to him and his friend and were very friendly...we introduced ourselves and said "how are you?" Bill turned to her and said "Uh, we were HAVING a CONVERSATION here." We apoligized and walked away, and then my friend got really upset and loudly started talking about how they should go to a regular bar instead.

They left like five minutes later.

I should have known better than to waste my time. What a dick.

He's certainly very pleased with himself and I suspect the fact that you are female was of little interest to him. Still like his show though-sorry!

I recall a story of a friend of a friend who met Christopher Reeve, right before he took his tumble off a horse. Arrogant little prick, he was, so they said. Of course, those who are arrogant, will be humbled. Christopher Reeve had a lot of time to think about those he walked on before his death. Now, I'm not wishing anything bad happen to Maher, just saying what needs to be said.

I am sure its hard for any man or woman who is always in the limelight to have a private life. I am sure he meant no offense, just wanted privacy and a conversation with his friend.

I have a couple of friends in the tv industry and they simply want to be like you or i but cant, because EVERYONE knows their face.

Trust me as ive been on TV here too many times and it can ruin your life. Any woman who tries to talk to me, in a bar, i would back off no matter how pretty or attractive she may be.

If you are a TV personality,it is to be expected that members of the public will attempt to acknowledge you and that is just part of the lifestyle you have chosen. Furthermore,anyone who frequents Shotgun Willie's can expect to be approached by entertainers,whether famous or not-it's how the place operates.
My point was that perhaps Maher wanted to be seen in a gentleman's club,without actually being interested in the performers. Either way,he had no reason to be impolite.

I have never, ever gone to a strip club with the intent of just having a quiet conversation and ignoring the performers. Dancers introduce themselves to customers (famous or not) in strip clubs - that's their job. Maher should get over himself.
