Tales from 'Celebrity Escort' Chris Gaida

Chris Gaida has the coolest job in the world. By day, he is a producer for "Dr. Drew's Lifechangers" and by night, he is a "celebrity escort."

Gaida explained, "My job is to bring them through the red carpet. I'm kind of like the concierge for the event." He laughingly added, "People think celebrity escorting is a sexual thing, and it's not. Other than Betty White getting frisky a few times, everyone knows what it's all about."

Gaida has been arm candy for Hollywood A-listers like Queen Latifah, Julia Roberts, and his one of his favorite celebs, Kermit the Frog!

"Hands down, it's Kermit the Frog. It was the TV Land Awards show when I was ushered into his trailer. I was honored to also meet his longtime love, Miss Piggy. But I wasn't the only one who was starstruck! After I finished taking pictures, Diana Ross came running over to tell Kermit what a big fan she still was, and they talked for almost 20 minutes."

Chris hopes to write a book full of red carpet confessions, but here's one he was willing to give up now: "Celebrities get excited by celebrities. You're backstage and celebrities are taking pictures of each other and they're as excited as us fans."
