A fan posted her experience with Mandy Moore this morning outside the taping of Live With Regis & Kelly. Mandy apparently didn’t sign the fans autograph and didn’t acknowledge fans leaving many upset. Mandy told the fan, “Hmmm I read your message sweetie and I must say I am beyond upset. It sucks that few people ruin it for everyone. This morning when i first arrived at Regis and Kelly, we were late and had to rush to soundcheck. I couldn’t sign for the ebayers (not that I would have because of all the previous drama) and one them cussed me out and then said ‘I hope your movie fails’. So naturally, on the way out (we were going to a breakfast meeting from there), we walked straight to the car to avoid the mean ebayers. Had I known you were there sweetie, I would have loved to have stopped and said hello. I feel terrible that you had the impression of me from this morning, but I promise that next time… that won’t be the case babe!”
