Stalking Lower Hudson Valley Celebrities … So You Don't Have To

Chynna Phillips invents fake stalker to cheer up Billy Baldwin

tjndc5-5et5nbuqdlhdpza9ic4_layout.jpgThe only thing better than getting stalked by Suburbarazzi? Having your wife invent your own imaginary stalker just to fluff up your ego. And if that wife happens to be the incredibly hot 1/3 of Wilson Phillips, all the better.

According to Star Pulse, Bedford’s Billy Baldwin was the recipient of just such a prank at the hands of his wife, Chynna Philips. The made-up stalker, “Melissa Farrell,” was exposed at a family Thanksgiving party by brother (and Upper Grandview resident) Stephen Baldwin.

Billy’s take on the whole stalker affair is after the break …

<blockquote><div>I had a celebrity stalker for three weeks. Everybody was in on it – my doorman; my neighbours; my family; my manager; my agent. I ran a political non-profit organisation, the manager of that too. I’d come home, and my wife would go, ‘Honey, she called again.’ So I’d go to the answering machine and she would say, ‘Billy, I saw you on Columbus Avenue today. This is Melissa Farrell talking and who the hell do you think you are? You looked at me and when our eyes met, you looked the other way. All I’m asking for is a little friendship and let me tell you something mister, I’ll have it.’ My wife would take the cordless (phone) and record the message, and then go back in the room and play it and if it didn’t sound right she’d delete it and do take two until she perfected it. Then the head of my non-profit called and said, ‘Some woman named Melissa Farrell called and she was flipping out… she was ranting and raving and screaming.</div></blockquote>

You know your wife loves you if she’s willing to prank call charities on your behalf … under a pseudonym. That or she’s stark raving mad. Either way, it’s still damn cute.
