Yay! Very excited to see this, Jo always give such great interviews, and always speaks so honestly. I’m very curious to know what she regrets (?)

I still don’t understand why she’s doing this interview. I mean I love hearing Jo talk, but I can’t imagine her telling anything we haven’t heard before.
There’s no reason for her to do it, unless she’s going to make a big announcement.

I’m no Oprah fan, but I plan on watching it, and/or taping it (I still have a VCR).

I’m soooo looking forward to it!! It seems so long ago we saw a new interview! I love Jo! I hope it’ll be on Leaky soon, because I don’t think I can see it on our channels…

I’m not too excited that Oprah is going to interview her but it does seem, from the clip, that is may be a good interview.

I’ll bet that her big regret is just that her mother didn’t live long enough to see JKR begin to achieve success, or even to read Book One.

If she’s going to talk about her depression, I still want to know why she made it okay for her characters to treat Cho like a plague to be avoided just because she cried a lot.
