Asheville celebrity spotting: Bellamy Young of ‘Scandal’ around town


Bellamy Young, a star of the ABC hit show Scandal was in town over the weekend to visit her mom. While here, she took in a show at The Isis in West Asheville and visited the WNC Farmer’s Market, according to her Twitter feed:

Had the best weekend in #Asheville w/my mom. Met Jolene at the #FarmersMarket…

and Bubba & Kim at #CircleBRanchBBQ…

…and had a little party at mom’s house for her friends from high school. 🙂 (thx to Bubba & Jolene) :-}

And caught dinner & show at #IsisMusicHall 🙂
Oh, #Asheville, I love you.
Mom, you’re okay too.

As a little aside, Young was my English teacher way back when, and her daughter and I crossed paths a few times as we were both beginning our budding acting careers. I think it’s obvious as to who went on to be a success there.

Young wasn’t the only celebrity in Ashvegas over the weekend. Author Malcolm Gladwell and NPR radio show host Peter Sagal were also visiting.
