Phone Message Transcript: March 23, 1999
[appearing on Anne's fan phone line, expanded for the web site]

"Hello everyone. This is Scott Zebley, Anne Rice's personal assistant and today is March 23rd, 1999. Today and yesterday have been two of the most beautiful days so far this year. Anne has decided to take a much deserved break and is in Florida for the week. She loved the fact that with just a few hours of travel, she can escape and experience a totally different environment. For those of you who have already read Vittorio and have called in your praise, Anne thanks you. Anne would also like to thank all of the wonderful calls that we are still receiving for Armand. In case you are unaware, tours of Anne's home at 1239 First Street, are open to the public on Monday's from 1:00 o'clock to 3:00 o'clock. Yesterday was a perfect day for tours and I have had many people who had just come from the Anne Rice Collection, with items that they had just bought. Anne's home at 1314 Napoleon Ave., is also open for tours on Tuesdays thru Sunday's from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. And to the floods of calls concerning whether or not I am a relative of Arnold Schwartznager, the answer is no. I do have a Swiss/Austrian ancestry, and occasionally, accidently crush things. Finally, to answer the biggest question that we have been getting, no I have not dated Monica Lewinsky, and yes, I am single. Again, thanks for all of your comments and questions and Anne will return soon to leave you a message of her own."
