      Yeah, I was always under the impression that lady was pushing the envelope a bit -- sometimes between watching Little Rascals and other channel surfing after school when I was in jr. high, I'd catch her show if she had an interesting guest, and now watching with Bing all these years later, where in blazes did she get that heavy, exaggerated Southern accent? I know people born and bred in Tennessee as she was, and their accents are not these thick gooey overwrought drawls like she affected. My word, even folks from the Deep South haven't that TV-movie actorish type of accent Dinah Shore was plying.

      Really, it struck me as phony of her.
