Wow! What a ride!

This is awesome news! Whenever I have seen Darlene Cates interviewed on tv, or read a print article, I've been impressed with her kindness ~ she's a lovely lady and did an amazing job on WEGG.

Wow - you guys are amazing to have coordinated this. I was always amazed at how comfortable she was in that movie - especially since the role of actress(or any public presence for that matter) was totally out of the box for her. I know that JD played a huge part in making her feel comfortable and it will be quite a treat to hear what she has to say. Thanks!!!!!

This is really great. Now I just have to think of something intelligent to ask. DITHOT, just curious is Darlene computer saavy? I love that she calls herself Johnnys biggest fan. Does she want to join the zone?

What a wonderful surprise! Never in a million years did I think we´d get the opportunity. Thanks Darlene for being such a darling (pun intended ;-) ).

Now...what to ask..? :-?
