    What IS that? I thought Madonna's fake British accent was affected. Donna was raised in Virginia, lives in California. Where did she get the accent?

    Honestly until I read this post I never knew she was born and raised in the US. I always assumed she was British or from some country in Europe. I don't know what kind of accent it is. She seems to speak slow and light and tries to sound like she is a member of a Royal family or teaching a class on etiquette. It's ironic how I assumed Donna was born overseas, and Charlize Theron was born in the US, only to find out she was born in Africa.

    I heard the interview on demand last night. Her voice threw me for a loop as I never watched her work.

    As noted already, she sounds like an American trying to pretend she's British.

    Interview from 30 years ago.....sounds the same. Said she was raised in Europe for a while.

    It's the sign of being a moron, when you can't hold your own accent and acquiesce to your surroundings......Madonna, in my opinion is one of the luckiest people on earth, because she doesn't have looks or talent, but managed to make a big career out of it.

    What a fucking bore. She must be incredible in the sack. Why else would Dan listen to that pompous bitch talk all these years?

    You aren't kidding. It's been awhile since I lived there, but I think "Hillbilly" might have even been in the name somewhere.

    My guess is she speaks slowly and with that stilted phrasing to help cover her accent. Some acting coach steered her wrong early on.

    From Wikipedia: Dixon was born in Alexandria, Virginia; her father, Earl Dixon, owned a nightclub on U.S. 1, called "Hillbilly Heaven"

    It's the "I'm better than you" affect.
    Meanwhile, she's probably more miserable than us peasants.

    As soon I heard her voice I thought, "well this shit is over" and the station. I'm not putting up with that crap. Who the fuck cares about Donna Dixon?

    I am surprised she has a Wikipedia page.

    I'm SO glad that someone brought this up - I was listening in the car for a few minutes yest. afternoon, and she came on... it was mindblowing. She sounded SO ridiculous, like she was trying to imitate Jacqueline Kennedy or something... SO FRICKIN BIZARRE.

    I thought the same thing as you all - Dan Akroyd has listened to this chick for HOW LONG?? And not only HOW she talked which was fucking nutty, but what she said: "We've been to the bottom of the Earth twice, we've scaled Mochupichu, we've wrestled lions....I'm passionate about Science... I'm an explorer..." wtf?!

    The pretentiousness in the studio rose to a smothering level when she sauntered in... :rolleyes:

    Wrong state. You meant to put "Wikipedia Virginia."

    I would love to hear their kids spill it about regarding their thoughts on 'ol Mom & Dad.
