She's so sweet! Congrats, ladies.

For the life of me I wouldn't know what questions to ask but I'll have a think.
Oops, I haven't participated in the WEGG discussion so far.

gemini, I don't know how computer savvy she is. Wouldn't that be great if she joined! :bounce:

Thanks everyone for your congratulatory wishes. We are really excited about the opportunity. :snoopydances: She seems to be such a sweet person and a wonderful actor. We are really looking forward to hearing about her experiences on WEGG and her thoughts about Johnny! And of course we can't thank her enough for giving us the opportunity to do so! :thanks!:

:bounce: Just have to add my congratulations! This just proves that you should always ask. The worst that can happen is that you don't hear back or you get a polite "No", but sometimes the best happens. Thank you for venturing to contact Ms. Cates, DITHOT. I'm looking forward to hearing what she has to say, as I was extremely impressed with her in the movie.

That's my motto, Bix! :cool:

I see we have some questions coming in already. I'm looking forward to more questions. But I'm mostly looking forward to her answers.

This is wonderful news, Liz and DitHot! I really liked her in WEGG and I am anxious to hear what she has to say.

Now, if I could only come up with an intelligent question.....

Congratulations Dithot, Liz !

Very :interesting:

I won't send in a question for Darlene (haven't read the book and do not participate in the discussion, although I like to read the ONBC tidbits and comments), but I'm looking forward to hear what others are asking, and in particular what she will answer.

:hatsoff: :hatsoff: to both of you, Liz and DITHOT! This is very exciting! Like Joni said, Darlene's kindness came through in her portrayal of Momma, and really helped make WEGG the genuine movie that it is. I wish it weren't such a busy time for me personally(filling out college aid forms for my oldest child right now), so that I could reread my copy of WEGG that is in the attic and participate more. I have been catching the ONBC discussions each day in bits and pieces as I can. I will be thinking of some questions for Darlene to submit. It will be awesome reading her replies to everyone's questions here, and it is very touching that she would give us her time. The month of May sure has alot of exciting things for Zoners to look forward to! :bounce:

Congratulations Liz and DITHOT for giving everyone the opportunity to ask Darlene some interesting questions about her experiences filming with Johnny, it's really nice of her to take the time to do it. I wonder if this is the first time she's been asked to do this by a Johnny website.

I look forward to reading all the answers but in the meantime I'll start thinking about any questions I'd like to ask her.

Thanks again! :disco:

Heidi, I could be in the deppths of college aid forms this time next year myself. Good luck with all of that and good luck to your kid. Feel free to add any thoughts you have about WEGG even though you haven’t read the book.
