“Usually, I have had the luxury of taking part in TV interviews with my other half Danny
Bonaduce (and that IS luxurious because he has always saved me when things would start to go awry)...This was not the
case this time. I had the honor and privilege of being invited by Ms. Ames to participate in a one on one interview
for the TV show ‘The Rustam Report’. Of course...I was terrified,
but I needn't have worried. She asked me very interesting questions.
I felt like I was having a mimosa over lunch with a very dear girlfriend. We
laughed, we cried (not really) but BOY - did we have fun! I'll always remember
you as my first Denise! I would encourage anyone who is lucky enough to garner
an invitation to be on the show to jump at it. JUMP NOW!!! You will be
glad you did!”
"I absolutely adore
Gretchen! Thanks for keeping it real!"
ROCKS...I luv the girl..she is a PUNK ROCK MOMMA!"

a beauty she is.. We hope to see more of her and YOU ! I bet you two had a blast together! Thanks for all you
