Pinky's Fandance - Brett Butler

So, the other night I was at an event which was celebrating the new FX season with a bunch of the stars from their shows. I went in the hopes of meeting Shawnee Smith (who was, sadly, not nice at all) and, erm, Charlie Sheen (but I left before he arrived). The event had a weird set-up, but with the exception of maybe one or two fans, everyone who was waiting there was a "dealer" (aka looking to make a profit from selling autographs). Usually, they'll call anyone over to get a signature, but when Brett Butler arrived NO ONE CALLED HER OVER.
I was like, "WHAT?!?!" I thought I was in the Twilight Zone because these dealers will call anyone they can get over. Why didn't they want Brett? I was bewildered. But, I was also beside myself because I'm a HUGE fan of Brett Butler and really wanted a picture with her. From the crowd, all she could hear was my little voice saying, "Brett, can I get a picture with you?" She came right over. Still, even when she was right in front of them no one asked her for a signature. Why not? I LOVED Grace Under Fire and was so stoked to see her. I would've lost my mind in her heyday to finally get a chance to see her in person. I wish I knew why the dealers were so adverse to getting her graph. Odd.
