Extra Interview for Goodbye Natalie Goodbye Splendour
In September 2009 Dennis and I interviewed in NY with EXTRA. It was a great interview...went over two hours. The interviewer, Joe, in the top photo (left) asked all of the pertinent questions I hoped for. He was sensitive, alert, and on target. I was so nervous at first, but Joe was the best interviewer EVER on this story and quickly put me at ease.
I have no idea why the interview never aired. We even answered viewer questions they presented to us. It's just another indication of media fear of this story. We were thorough in this interview: we told what needed to be told, and I suppose that's what made it more difficult for the show to air the truth. Everyone is afraid of a lawsuit, but there's no doubt in my mind Joe believed us and liked us. He talked with us for a long while after the interview. Afterward, the show shot Dennis and me walking in Times Square. I ganged these photos together (for easy scanning) my sister-in-law, Shirley, took that day. Joe took the one of Dennis, me, Shirley and my brother, Dave (a retired lieutenant). The one of Dennis sitting in a chair overlooking Times Square was taken prior to the interview when we were waiting in the Planet Hollywood studio to be interviewed. The bottom photo is my brother dropping me off...he and Shirley were excellent escorts, I really appreciated their support this day. The bottom left photo is Dennis and me, proudly holding our book.
I'm planning on calling EXTRA to see if I can talk with someone about the interview: maybe get a copy of it. It baffles me to no end why the media is afraid of the truth.
