It wasnít really a chat show, it was a magazine show. I looked at it as a summer job. As long as no one makes me interview a celeb again, Iíll be happy. It wasnít what I signed up for but, of course, nowadays everyone likes celebs. Iím pretty bored of them, though. I wasnít interested and couldnít be bothered to pretend I was.

I wish you would mention the joy she had for life, thatís what she gave me. If she was the tragic figure they say she was, I would be a wreck, wouldn't I? It was her love of life that carried her through everything. The middle of the road was never for her ó it bored her. She wanted the pinnacle of excitement. If she was happy, she wasnít just happy, she was ecstatic. And when she was sad, she was sadder then anyone. She lived eight lives in one, and yet I thought she would outlive us all. She was a great star, and a great talent, and for the rest of my life I will be proud to be Judy Garland's daughter. It wasnít suicide, it wasnít sleeping pills, it wasnít cirrhosis. I think she was just tired, like a flower that blooms and gives joy and beauty to the world and then wilts away.

I didnít have much, but I was always happy to share what I did have. It seemed like every African that came to New York City would show up at my apartment door at dinnertime, and I couldnít turn them away. I wasnít much older than any of them, but they started calling me ĎMama Africaí and the name stuck.

For so long, I didn't play the object of attention or affection. It wasn't until L.A. Story that anyone cast me in a role that had my sexuality as a point of interest or focus or operation. I just wasn't examined in the same way that a 'pretty girl' would be.

One day, back there in the good old days when I was nine and the world was full of every kind of magnificence, and life was still a delightful and mysterious dream, my cousin Mourad, who was considered crazy by everybody who knew him except me, came to my house at four in the morning and woke me up by tapping on the window of my room.
"Aram," he said.
I jumped out of bed and looked out the window.
I couldn't believe what I saw.
It wasn't morning yet, but it was summer and with daybreak not many minutes around the corner of the world it was light enough for me to know I wasn't dreaming.
My cousin Mourad was sitting on a beautiful white horse.

Ron was frustrated. He wasn't happy but he wasn't as angry as I thought he would be. Ron's just kinda mystified, at this point, wondering what it will take. It may take a special declaration by Commissioner Bud Selig to get this to happen. I know Bud loves him. I know Bud wants him in the Hall of Fame. Most people who've followed the game for a long time, especially during that 1960s era with all those superstars, feel that Ron deserves to be in there.
