Ooops! VENUS caught in a fib.

Do you remember the "Got milk?" ad that VENUS and SERENA appeared in a few years ago? Well read the interview quote from my little fave.
------
Q. You told us you don't celebrate holidays, you don't eat breakfast. What else don't you do that's of interest or of importance?
VENUS WILLIAMS: Well, I don't drink milk. I like jello, cranberries. I have a sticker collection.
------

Oh well, so much for that sponsor, I guess.

I have that huge poster all big and framed in my living room right now of Venus and Serena in that milk campaign ad...

"I told her, `You don't want to get into a hitting battle with Sharapova, because it would be uneven for Sharapova, because Sharapova only has one good side and that's her backhand,"'. "`You don't want to get into that for the simple reason you would win. So try to hit some balls to her strong side, to her backhand, and that would help you with your match for tomorrow

I think VENUS is looking to replace Cosby as the Jello spokesman.

what is up with Venus! she doesn't make these kinds of mistakes any longer. i don't get this. and did anyone else see the way Oracene seemed quite pissed off with her during her last two matches? was it my imagination or was Mama not too impressed with what she was seeing on court???
