When I was 12 years old, I had a wicked crush on the late Michael Landon. When I was 26 and working for CBS in New York, I happened to be alone in an elevator with him. I was so stoked that I had to tell him how I once adored him.

He replied, “But now you’re older and wiser.”

I said, “No, just older.”

When we got to the lobby, he turned to me and said, “Well, good-bye, young lady. I hope your taste improves.” Wow, what a great guy!
