wine by the color

In case you were wondering, Darlene Cates, who played the mother in "What’s Eating Gilbert Grape," is still alive.

I know this because at dinner tonight there was a woman at the table next to me who was a dead ringer for her. Not the size of her, but her face.

So upon my return to the hotel, I did a little research and was mildly surprised to hear she’s still among the living. And has her own web site.

I do love the internets.

    Not sure what's more disturbing: that you saw What's Eating Gilbert Grape or that you vividly remember one of the flop's main characters.

    What's Eating Gilbert Grape? Was that the one where that little DiCaprio bitch played the retarded cat? I hate him so.

    I really thought she died in real life too. BUt then again, I also heard rumors that Russell Crowe killed himself after he made Romper Stomper. ANd he seems to be still alive.

    BSG: I have to respectfully disagree; I thought WEGG was a well-done flick.

    Todd: I am very, very scared.

    Marjon: Definitely alive; definitely annoying.
