________________________________________________________________________ I went to Greenville to catch some footage of Paula Deen. She was there talking on a stage about RANDOM stuff for about 30 minutes. She then pretended to leave. I would have left, but I caught wind of a converstation of someone talking to a news photographer that she would do a photoshoot so I stayed to see. Thank goodness she did the fake leave because that cleared out a lot of the crazy. There were people there who couldnt even stand, had oxygen tanks, missing chromosomes and just about anything else you could imagine out there waiting for this lady. They were screaming for her and crowding her. I felt sorry for her security. I could tell he just wanted to punch a bunch of these ladys and get her in the van. It was great!. Here are some of the news outlets with links: I will update as they release video. WYFF Channel 4Pictures (Compare to mine!) WSPA Channel 7Video Greenville News OnlinePictures Photographer had total access and these are the shots she posts. I was following her around to blend in. LOL
Fox Carolina(Greenville)Pictures (Compare to mine!) Back story: This aired BEFORE the appearance, and has relevance to what happened. VideoCody Alcorn showed up at the event and got pictures which I got a few.

I went to Ferguson's for the first time at the request of JJSolomon. Mr Paparazzi was in the house taking photos. It was packed! If you dont know about Ferguson's let me give you the quick rundown.
-A smoking deck(You cant smoke inside bars in Spartanburg any more.)
-A nice variety of food ALL NIGHT
The bar looks small from the outside, but it has two floors of fun! Around 0100 it was so packed moving was impossible. People were doing group dances, break dancing, and just all around having fun. JJ Solomon is a great DJ. He plays songs that make people want to dance. He played a wide variety of music that even the people who were "too cool to dance" and holding up the walls couldnt help but bob their head to. Some people were having too much fun. LOL! In all it was a safe, fun smoke-free environment.
