Behind the Headlines: Peter Facinelli tweets

Peter Facinelli tweets
14 November 2009, 4:46 pm

Peter Facinelli, one of the stars of the “Twilight” movies, tweets.

He tweeted in advance about his appearance today at Frenchtown Square mall, now known as Mall of Monroe.

So if you are wondering why there were people in line from other cities and therefore would not have seen the local advance coverage, the reason is some of them found out about the event from the actor’s own publicity.

Here’s his twitter.

Here’s his fan web site.

Behind the Headlines: Yes it is common to charge for autographs

Yes it is common to charge for autographs
14 November 2009, 5:14 pm

The only complaint I heard from any of the fans who gathered for the Peter Facinelli’s meet and greet Saturday at The Mall of Monroe were from those who didn’t know that photos or autographs would cost them some cash.

Autographs were available for $25 and photos for $40, with partial proceeds benefiting Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a charity that supports childhood cancer research.

After I heard one fan fussing, I asked her where she got her information because that detail was well publicized locally. It turns out she lives out of town, and heard about the event second-hand.

Another fan also didn’t want to spend that much money on a meet and greet, so she and the granddaughter just stood by to the side to catch a glimpse of the movie star and then went home.

As I explained to them, fees for autographs (or the requirement to purchase a specific item to get the autograph) are common practice in the celebrity world. I’ve seen that procedure as I sought out autographs from authors and actors I enjoy, and some of my relatives and friends have seen that at comic book events.

But it is also common practice to donate at least part of those proceeds to charity, and Peter’s benefit was for the Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.
