Within days of blowing the whistle on celebrities who act like jerks, the Frisky is back with an exposé about famous folks who are just folks—people "we were pleasantly surprised to find were lovely in person."

  • Paris Hilton: "Always drunk or stoned but really friendly."
  • Hunter S. Thompson: "Super cordial, funny and welcoming."
  • "Annie" Hathaway: "She seemed genuinely sweet and normal.”
  • Drew Barrymore: "As friendly and sweet as she seems."

  • Judy Blume: The beloved young adult author consoled the tipster after a breakup. "Judy got so concerned and totally comforted me. She also told me that it took her three marriages to find the perfect guy!"
  • Kelly Osbourne: "Totally fantastic." But "I wouldn’t want to be on her bad side, though, because she was s**t-talking everyone, hilarious as it was."
