Letter, Oh We Get Letters

Okay, time for some viewer mail. Gosh, where do I start? Okay—I get this question so often, I figure it’s time I answered it once and for all:

Dear Ziad,

You are so cool and smart and fun and awesome, you must have a ton of celebrity friends, right? It seems only natural that other really attractive, successful people would want to flock to you. Birds of a feather, amirite? Yeah, I’m right. I knew it.




Well, yeah—ya got me, anonymous fan. Guilty as charged!

Talented people like me tend to have a lot of friends who are also quite rich and intelligent and good looking and rich. Here are just a few of those dear friends and colleagues who’ve endorsed me both personally and professionally over the course of my storied career and our deep, deep friendships:
