I remember hearing about Paris Hilton being on Dickson St during the first Simple Life filming.

Yeah I'm pretty sure Paris Hilton was up here at some point of filming that show. Of course Wal-mart also brings in some big celebrities for their stockholders meetings as well. Although I don't recall hearing of too many of them hanging around or being seen in other areas outside the stockholders meetings.

Yeah, I don't think Paris Hilton was here because she just loves Norhwest Arkansas... it was actually to make fun of Arkansans on her show. Or at least that's what I hear. As for other celebrities, I doubt they're here to sign autographs, except maybe for Wal-Mart shareholders... never know where kissing up to Wal-Mart will get ya.

I'm seriously wondering why Danny Glover was in Fayetteville? I wonder if he has some affiliation with the Omni Center in Fayetteville or maybe knows a professor at the university??

I have an architect friend in Bentonville who owns some really cool suites that he rents out and he has had a lot of celebs. Paula Abdul has stayed in his place and she supposedly likes it here.

I saw John Mayer in Fayetteville Thurs 2/1. But he was on the stage in Barnhill. Good concert; lousy seats. Does that count as a celeb sighting? Rumor has it he was spotted walking around the Promenade the day before and stayed at the Embassy Suites in Rogers. (No, Jessica Simpson was not spotted in NWA.)

I saw Houston Nutt at Chick-fil-A last week does that count?

I saw a picture of one of my cousins with Matthew McConaughey at the Wal Mart Home Office. So I guess that counts.

Doesn't he usually come to Bikes Blues and BBQ, I saw him there a couple of years ago. I would guess that he comes about every year though.

I saw Michael Jordan @ XNA when I was working there last spring. I think he was in town for the big kid's BBall Tournament they have @ Bud Walton.... I can't remember the name of it right now.

Hulk Hogan is at the Wal-Mart Home Office signing autographs right now!!! He's supposed to be at the Bentonville Supercenter tomorrow signing more autographs! Woo hoo!!! I know where I'm taking my son tomorrow. :camera:

I guess it has to do with the release of the Hulk Hogan: The Ultimate Anthology 4-disc DVD with the bonus 4th disc only available at Wal-Mart.

With the Shareholders meeting coming up, I would expect there to be quite a few celebrities around the area. Someone told me that The Eagles were coming to do an outdoor concert. I don't know if it is true but that would be impressive.
