I bought a flyer/CD thingie on ebay that had a brief interview with Bernadette in it, here's a couple of the questions/answers for you all:

What artists do you admire?

Bernadette: "Vanessa Redgrave, Lyle Lovett, and zydeco music. Basically, I love all types of music ... and especially Stephen Sondheim, who has provided me with many great roles over the years."

You look fantastic! What's your secret?

Bernadette: "It's no secret that one needs to exercise to keep one's body together. I've never smoked, nor have I been a big meat eater. But having Italian genes doesn't hurt either ...."

Will you write another book?

Bernadette: "Because I love both of my dogs equally, the next book will be about my adorable pit bull, Stella."

The rest of the questions/answers were mostly just rehashes of the stuff she's said in recent interviews, except one little bit about her dogs: "They eat right, get lots of exercise, listen to music and participate in lots of conversation. Did you ever talk to a dog? Try it, it's fun!"

Like mother, like kids.

I never knew she liked zydeco music. She must be enjoying herself now down in Louisiana.

I love that she admires Vanessa Redgrave, almost all of the most memorable moments in my theatre-going career have been provided by this acting genius.

I agree with the concept of speaking to dogs, my Westie would constantly surprise people by joining in the conversation - and not by barking either. Sometimes I would even feel like I was having an arguement with her when she was being stubborn about something. Sally, my little adopted cat, is also a real chatterbox. Perhaps it's my constant chatter that brings this out in them.

"There’s a lot in the world for us to turn our attention to — helping people, helping animals, and helping animals help people." ... Bernadette Peters, August, 2007
