Julie has a knack for dining with Idol contestants!
In 2005 I was in LA on business and met Julie for dinner one night. As we were leaving the restaurant she pointed out Constantine Maroulis sitting at a table.
BTW - my Idol encounter didn't end there. Flash forward 2 weeks. I leave LA, go on vacation in Hawaii, on the way home we have a connection in LAX and I find myself in line to check in for my flight with the Idol top 10 who were kicking off their tour.
