Melissa Gilbert’s Awkward Run-In With A Fan

May 08, 2012 02:00 PM by Shayla Perry

What would you say if you happened to see ABC‘s Dancing With The Stars contestant Melissa Gilbert? Other than asking her for Maksim Chmerkovskiy‘s phone number, of course! The former Little House on the Prairie actress shares her “favorite story ever” about a very recent run-in with a fan that had her jaw dropping. What happened?

“There was a family in the booth adjacent to ours,” Melissa writes in her People blog. “The husband said, ‘Did anyone ever tell you that you look like Melissa Gilbert?’ I said, ‘Yes, I get that all the time.’

“The wife then said, ‘Well, you look like the prettier version of her before the crazy plastic surgery.’ Audible jaw drops from [my friend] Amanda and me as I turned to look back at her. Then I whispered to Amanda, ‘I have to.’

“I then turned around very slowly looked the woman right in the eyes and very calmly said, ‘I am Melissa Gilbert,” the Little House on the Prairie star recalls. “The woman turned white and became covered in clammy flop sweat. We literally watched her throw up in her mouth a little bit.”

Gilbert and her friend were able to laugh about the incident, but she warns: “You must never believe everything you read on the web.”

We’re sure that couple learned a valuable lesson, but it was probably more along the lines of: “Don’t talk to celebrities — or anyone who even remotely resembles one!”
