These are one of my faves, and one of Susan Sarandon's, too. It's a cute story, how we met. I met Susan Sarandon at a red-carpet event. She complimented me on my necklace, which Sheryl Crow had admired at a Rolling Stones concert a few weeks earlier. I had another necklace like it in my purse to give to Sheryl, so I laughed and said, "I have one in my purse for Sheryl Crow. Do you want one, too?" I felt like one of those guys on the street saying, "Hey, want to buy a watch?" I told her I would send her one, and she just smiled and said, "No, you won't." But I got the contact info for her agent and I did send her one, along with some of my BethennyBakes Banana Oatmeal Cookies. Now I send her cookies on a regular basis.
