So the first time I met VW was almost three years ago at an event that should come as no surprise to avid readers of this blog. At that time I had the chance to talk to VW for 15 or 20 minutes and found her to be funny, sweet, hot and brilliant. All in 20 minutes. Alas, our paths were not to cross again for almost another year when I happened to be at her agency and a friend introduced us. I told her that she looked familiar and to me and she thought I was hitting on her but was very nice about it. Fast forward to about six months ago at the Bar Marmont and there she was again. I introduced myself to her, and again she thought I was hitting on her but I really wasn't, although at that second it wasn't the best time for either of us to be having a conversation. So, now here we are in the present and I thought VW would make a great choice because of all the attributes I mentioned previously and because I was hoping she would be willing to answer questions if you had them. For now, I will be the one asking her questions if she doesn't have anything specific to post, and then in the next two weeks or so will let you ask her questions to try and guess her identity. After the identity is revealed, I think we will have an ask VW questions every week or so and let her post when she feels like it.
I will say that VW didn't ask to be anonymous but what would be the fun of just telling everyone who she is and not putting your sleuthing skills to good use. I chose VW because of the car theme and it will become apparent later why I chose it. It's nothing obscure, and it happened to fit so I jumped right on it.
VW as I said on Friday is someone that is not a household name. Most of you won't recognize her name. HOWEVER, I would venture to say that 80% of you will recognize her once you see her or listen to her voice. I also know that ALL of you will love asking her questions once you find out what she has done.
VW was a Girl Scout and was and is brilliant at math and has won math competitions in the past. I believe she graduated from a Big Ten school. She then went off to Broadway and began her career there before moving into television and films. As for television, I would venture to say that most of you probably see her or hear her almost every day in one capacity or another. She is also currently starring in an award winning film.
Here is what she wrote to me the other day and we can consider this her first post. I did edit some identifying things in her e-mail.
Well, you certainly are persistent! I didn't even get a chance to respond to your past message - but I did check out your website - that is hilarious that you posted my legs - i'm guessing you got that off of wireimage or getty images?! Anyway - thank you for your interest. I am not a big blogger, but I can do my best to answer questions and post when possible... and i would LOVE if you revealed your identity because you have made me extremely curious! (i swear i would not tell anyone)
