DEAR DARLING "AGNES"
Whoa -- it's an IFFY sort of subject -- John Cullum is very uncomfortable when Emily wants to talk about "Agnes."
The Cullums reveal that "Agnes" is John Cullum-the- maid, who does the heavy-duty clean up chores. And yes, John plays Agnes to the hilt -- southern drawl, obedient, uncomplaining -- she's like a maid in an old film, one of those politically incorrect maids we don't see any more.
Yes, the Cullum's agree -- playing Agnes may be "incorrect politically," but Agnes-John never complains, and she works for no pay. It gets them both laughing when it's time to take care of the nasty jobs that have to be done once in a while.
