Question from Inez Gutierrez

Rosie, my mom used to watch you every day when I was a baby, and I would sit on her lap! I grew up watching and learning from you, and laughing and singing with you. Two questions: 1. are you related to Rosie Ruiz, from the Boston Marathon?; and 2 are you related to the funny girl, Gerri, from The Facts of Life? Peace Out, Inez
