Better Day DVD this year?

According to Liquid Crystal Productions a Dolly Parton DVD is on post production, I hope it’s a DVD from the Better Day World Tour, at the Australia leg part, They’ve been filmed the show in Melbourne during 3 times. If I remember right Dolly had the pink and white outfits ( same as in Gothenburg) but diffrent hair design ( Cheryl worked really hard in the hot Australia during 4-5 weeks even tho’ she worked really hard before the tour in Australia) Dolly wear hair art works, masterpieces! I can’t wait for this special DVD. The DVD will please her biggest fans ( ME!!) and alot of others around the world, I’m sure it will have some new things in it YAAY!!

Saturday Interview with Ingrid Maroniti from Victoria Australia


Saturday Interview with Ingrid Maroniti from Victoria Australia

Tell me about the day when you became a fan of Dolly…

It all started when i was holidaying with my family and we visited friends that owned a Drive-In theatre. They let us watch a movie and guess what that movie was, The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas so im guessing that was 1982. Ever since then I’ve loved Dolly.

Why is Dolly special for you?

Dolly is special to me because of her personality and her singing of course and most of all her sense of humour. I started collecting her albums and remembering the first one i got was 9 to 5 of my brother for my birthday.

Do you have any dreams of meeting Dolly?

My dream of meeting Dolly has already been fulfilled I met her in November 2011 at the Better Day tour in Melbourne. I won a meet and greet. When I received the email which I never believed i would win one I ran all around the house yelling out that Im going to meet Dolly Parton my family thought I was nuts but they were also happy for me.

Tell me about the day you met Dolly…

When it was time to meet Dolly I wasnt nervous or anything i was excited of course but not nervous. I walked around Melbourne looking for some flowers and a souvenir for her. I found some roses and a little koala bear keyring and took that with me. I arrived very early at the venue because i heard other people had turned up and missed out because they couldnt find where to go that wasnt going to happen to me. I was with my daughter and my best friend they sat with me right up until i was taken away for the meet and greet. They came to the concert with me the next night. It was all so very exciting we went back stage where we waited and we took photos of ourselves standing in front of her bus. Then the moment arrived a spotlight lit up outside the door of the bus and out come Dolly herself. She was so friggin awesome beautiful cant describe her and so tiny. She was just how i imagined her. I was about 4th in line and when i got to her i said hello Dolly and she said hi of course but i think i forgot to say my name cant believe that but anyway. I gave her my roses and they were orange because i love orange and another thing i forgot she loves yellow ones but anyway she said “what color are they”? i said they are orange and she said” oh how beautiful i dont think ive ever seen orange ones before i think they will be my favorite color now” I was wrapped with that. Then she asked ” if i would like them in the picture with us ” and i said yes that would be nice. We had our photo which turned out great i was so happy i knew she would but i was worried i would look awful. Then i said goodbye and that was it. My regret is i never gave her a hug.

Do you have any more goals to make about your dreams?

I still have more dreams to visit Dollywood now and see Dolly there which we are planning on next years opening. Hopefully they will auction off another chance to see Dolly i will pay anything to meet her again.

If you had the possibility to date Dolly, what would you do?

On the dating subject thats a little weird for me but if i had the chance i would love to just sit down and have a latte and just chat with her for hours. That would be so awesome.
