APH: Do you have pets?
WW: I have a black and white rat terrier named Capone. He is very, very spoiled.
APH: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
WW: I would go to Kenya. That's a place where children are starving and there is not enough water, food and clothing to take care of these children. I would like to do whatever I could do to help.
