Erin and Brian Presley at the Hard Rock Cafe in NYC by
It was held in a private room at the Hard Rock Cafe.
We ate breakfast and checked out items available for
silent auction and raffle. I bought 5 raffle tickets.
Erin & Brian showed up about 10 am. They gave them
seats in the front but Erin asked for stools so
everyone could see them and they could see us so they
gave them higher chairs. They talked a bit (I'll have
a list below because I can't remember what was said
when) and than the went around separately and stopped
and talked to everyone. Brian made it to our table
first. He's so much cuter in person than he is on TV!
He was so nice, he signed everything we had for him
and than he took pictures with us. Erin talked a lot
so there was quite a wait until she made it to us so
we went back up to the silent auction because they
said no one was bidding. They had a few items Erin
wore on the show so I bid $30.00 on her jean dress.
And guess what - I got it! I was so thrilled. I found
out (later) she wore it at least 3 times on PC. They
also did the raffle in between and I ended up with a
Hard Rock Cafe t-shirt! A girl at my table, Kellie,
ended up with a Hard Rock Cafe hat and three signs
from the show, one said Green Room, one said Port
Charles, and one said Erin Hershey. Another girl at my
table, Anne Marie, got a neat picture. The other
person at my table, a guy named Steve, didn't buy any
raffle tickets. So we thought we ended up with a lucky
table! Finally Erin made her way over to us. She was
so nice to, she took a seat with us! She also signed
everything and took pictures. It was almost time for
them to leave and a lot of us wanted pictures of them
together so I went and asked Brian! We took those,
Erin is so good in front of a camera. Than I got one
with me and both of them. Erin was getting her jacket
so I said, I'm just gonna stand next to Brian! I told
them both I wished them good luck and they'd get
something soon. They were so sweet and I felt like I
was talking to people I've know for years. I wasn't
nervous at all which is not me. It was the best fan
event I ever went to and I don't regret going at all.
Here is a few things that I remember that they talked
about or important things, in no particular order:
*Sadly Erin's pilot did not get picked up by NBC. Erin
seemed quite sad by this. She was explaining the
process of getting a pilot to us when someone
mentioned Nolan should have one, and she went through
A LOT to get that. Brian said maybe NBC will find
something for her but than she said maybe FOX will
pick up the pilot. So not too sure about any future
work for her
*AMC wanted Brian for a role (Jonathon) but he had to
turn it down. Julie HC thought of him and asked him
first, which I think was very nice. They were also
only going to make him sign a one year contract which
is unheard of. He turned it down due to the fact that
they wanted an answer so soon and also because Erin
needs to be in LA right now and they don't want to be
*Brian's movie should be out in Boston in June
*Someone asked about a reunion and Brian said ABC
won't pay for it! He said they want to do something
when GH has their fan club event this year but it's
hard because everyone is out doing their own thing.
*They said Kiko wanted to be there but couldn't be.
(FYI, no one else from PC showed up)
*They talked about the Emmys
*They families were there and they were so nice, they
talked to people as well. Erin's sister is pregnant
and she's so cute!
*Erin's hair isn't as light as it used to be
*Erin saw Barbara Walters at the Emmys but she said
she doesn't think Barbara knew who she was! They were
talking a bit about her not getting the gig and it
turns out that the girl who did get "The View" gig -
her husband beat out Brian for college football! Erin
was than talking about reality show people and how
it's her pet peeve that they talk roles away from real
actors. Of course everyone laughed because they
thought of Elizabeth (but she really wasn't talking
*Erin said she didn't think anyone would come to the
event! (there were probably more than 40 people there)
*Rebecca Staab is traveling, I think Brian said
something about Eddie Matos working for something for
*They miss Thorsten since he moved to the East Coast
to be on AMC (he lived really close to them in LA)
