Dear Ken: Whats the dish on Deborah Ann Woll of True Blood?

The blue-eyed strawberry blonde, 27, who plays Jessica Hamby on the HBO series, is from Brooklyn, N.Y. Shes been a guest on a few other TV series and was in the movies Mothers Day, Little Murder and Highland Park. She prepped for her TV vampire role by studying wildlife footage. I watched a lot of animal videos and often attack footage. Stalking and attacking and killing are practices lost in most humans, so I needed to teach myself to do them, she said.

Dear Ken: Did Marshal Dillon ever kiss Miss Kitty in an episode of Gunsmoke?

Nope. But Miss Kitty did kiss him: on the cheek in a 1971 Christmas episode titled P.S. Murry Christmas.

Dear Ken: What were the titles of Annette Funicellos hit songs?

The former Disney Mouseketeer, now 69, recorded more than 100 tunes with several making the pop top 40 including Tall Paul, Pineapple Princess, O Dio Mio, How Will I Know My Love and First Name Initial. But my favorite is Jo Jo the Dog Faced Boy. It makes me go bow wow.
