NOW!!!! Onto Harrah’s in Atlantic City where they hosted the Pool After Dark… and met fans, 2 of whom also happen to be friends from my favourite place on the Web, BBF, aka The Bachelor and Bachelorette fans forum! A lot of the pictures below come from them, so thank you to Jolena and Laura, who also allowed me to share with you some of her thoughts from that day (text in italic below!)… Before I forget, the official photos are by Tom Briglia (of PhotoGraphics Photography).
Here is the start of Jolena & Laura’s adventures with ODI, as told by Laura:
I had brought Josh/Andi/Sabel a gift and since I had never been to an event like this I was unsure if I would get to talk to them and if I did would it be just a 1 minute conversation so I also wrote them a letter and put it in with the gifts. The front desk manager had the gifts put in their room waiting for them.
Around 6:00 or so I went down to get a cup of coffee and spotted JODI almost walking right toward me but I became so flustered that I froze. Before they got close to me they turned down another corridor. Finds out they must have just arrived and were looking for the Pool after Dark. But I have to tell you in those first moments when I saw them I had “butterflies.”
In the letter I wrote that I was on the [BFF] fan forum and told them some about how we enjoy coming on the forum and talking about our favorite couple. I told them we were on pins and needles about the wedding being on TV and asked if it isn’t on TV would they have a video made 🙂
I met Jolena around 8:00 and we all went to a nice sit down dinner and left there around 10:00. When we left the dinner we stopped by the Pool After Dark and asked if JODI was there yet. They said, no, we don’t expect them until about midnight or so (found out later this is usual for the celebrity hosts.) So now we have two more hours to kill.
We walked further down to this atrium right outside of the Pool After Dark and spotted the photographer and saw the backdrop where JODI would be having their professional pics taken. Jolena and I started chatting with the photographer and he explained that it was his job to take pics of JODI. We spent at least an hour talking to him. We asked him if we stayed there would we be able to see them before they went in the venue and he said when JODI is on their way security will make everybody leave the area. Right across within view is a Ben and Jerry’s and he said if we went in there we could sit in front of the windows and see them coming. So that’s what we did. My son left us and went down to talk to the photographer and came back and said: “you owe me big time, Mom”. Next the photographer is chatting with some other VIP person and he walks up to me and says, you’re going to get a meet and greet with JODI. I couldn’t believe it.
Now the good part!!! Around 12:10 security rounded up all the people there and when they approached us the Photographer told security we were there for a meet and greet so everyone else had to leave the area. Two security people were there, one talking into a walkie talkie. And within a couple minutes down the corridor comes JODI with a security guard walking on each side of them. (So now we have a glimpse of what happens when they are at a big venue like this.) Seriously, my heart just about stopped.
Immediately even before the people waiting to interview JODi and before they get their professional pictures taken the photographer walks me up to JODI and introduces me. When he said this is Laura, Andi and Josh both said, what is your last name? I said, Walsh. They immediately gave me a big hug. They said when they went to their room they saw the gift bag and thanked me again and again for the gifts but said they mostly enjoyed the letter I wrote. And they proceeded to tell me that they have heard about our forum and that we are such nice people.
I told him again that I knew it was him right out of the limo and he said, it seems like everybody did except for her and he pointed to Andi.
They talked with Jolena and I for so long that I felt guilty because people that were there to get an interview (In Style and FOX Philadelphia) were patiently waiting. I said at least two or three times, we’ve taken up enough of your time and Josh kept saying, no, no, you’re not taking up our time.
The photographer took a picture of each of us with JODI individually and gave each of us our pics. I really have to send this guy a special thank you. I don’t know what my son said to him but if we did not get the meet and greet we would have only gotten a quick hello in the venue because so many people were there to see them. And with the music being so loud we would not have been able to hear each other talk.
Laura and Jolena with Andi & Josh:
If I had to sum both of them up in one word it would be “Genuine.” They absolutely were thrilled to meet and talk to us and interested in what we had to say. Josh even spent some time talking to my son. My son told him he didn’t have to watch any of it because I gave him a minute by minute description of what happened on each episode. And again when just before we left they both thanked us again for the letter and the gifts. And, Josh said we enjoyed your letter all four pages of it.
Andi and Josh both are drop dead gorgeous. Hard to believe but definitely better looking in person. Andi has the clearest skin of anyone I’ve ever met. Not a line or a wrinkle or blemish anywhere!
They did spend time with other fans!
They were joined by Andi’s BFF Nikki and got to celebrate (belatedly) her birthday:
And Nikki also talked and posed with Laura & Jolena:
When we got into the venue we saw Nikki, also a beautiful girl, they were in a private cabana near the stage and had a security guard in there with them. Josh and Andi took pics with fans. Josh stood there at times just bobbing his head to the music, just enjoying himself. Saw a lot of PDA between JODi. Kissing and hugging and again, just standing there arms around each other looking into each others eyes. They do that a lot still. No doubt in my mind seeing them together that they are both over the moon in love. It touched my heart to see this in real life.
Nikki wasnt the only one with a cake! Look at this gorgeous Sabel cake from a fan:
So I hope you enjoyed hearing about really one of the best days of my life. It was a dream. I never expected to have the amount of time I did with them. And for both Josh and Andi giving me a big hug. Just no words! They are both very classy people who you would be comfortable around in any surroundings. They made me feel that they were very excited to have met me. Hard to believe but they are just that genuine.
Jolena and I ended our night about 4:00 a.m. with a cup of coffee an a piece of pound cake. I enjoyed Jolena so much, we hit it off right away.
