It's a heck of a lot of fun, and sometimes, a celebrity like Hilary Duff will even be nice and let you off the hook afterwards. But in the case of one California woman, the party's over. Restraining order style.
Actress Sandra Bullock was granted court protection against the fan she says repeatedly visited her home and tried to run over her husband, Jesse James.
Sandra Bullock testified Friday that on five different occasions, Marcia Valentine (pictured) left in her yard palm fronds adorned with "weird signs" and "pieces of animal fur."
Oooh. Holly Madison and PETA aren't gonna be happy 'bout that.
Orange County Superior Court Judge Thomas Borris said he found "clear and convincing evidence" of stalking and issued a three-year restraining order.
The ruling prohibits Marcia Valentine from contacting or coming within 500 yards of Bullock, Jesse James or his three children from a previous marriage.
The judge has also given the Crash star and her hubby permission to record any phone calls or videotape Valentine if she were to violate the order.
Valentine did not attend the hearing. She may have moved on and taken up stalking some other famous woman, such as Ricki Lake.
Valentine, 45, of Huntington Beach, was arrested in April for investigation of assault with a deadly weapon after trying to run over James with a car.
She remains free on $25,000 bail pending a May 22 hearing. Prosecutors are still reviewing the case and have not decided whether to file charges.
Bullock said that after Valentine was spotted April 22 outside the couple's home in Sunset Beach, James went outside and tried to write down the woman's license plate when she aimed her Mercedes-Benz at him.
"I saw him go behind her car to get the license number. She got angry," said Bullock, who was also harassed by another crazy dude last year.
James, the former host of the reality TV hit Monster Garage, was not hurt.
