There were a few things that bothered me about Virgie’s interview. One of them was about not knowing Donna Hogan at all. I recall Donna H. saying in an interview that she got some information for her book from Virgie, but that they were not at all close and didn’t know each other well. Perhaps Donna meant she got info from Virgie’s side of the family, and not Virgie herself. I don’t know. It seemed apparent Donna H. may not have cared much for Virgie, but I didn’t hear her say anything bad about her.
all I've ever heard Virgie Arthur say is, that she didn't know Donna, and turned her down for an interview about her book because she didnt' want to talk about Anna for that book. If Donna said that she got info 'from virgie' then I wouldn't believe that (and I don't recall her saying that at all but I didn't see all of her interviews). Virgie also turned her down ,when Donna wanted her to go on some sort of 'jerry springer-ish' show for some 'daniel' reunion fabrication, that was hatched by Donna about the time the book idea was hatched. so obviously Donna called Virgie on the telephone at least twice, but I don't think Donna was ever in Virgie's home for a family function or dinner. Virgie worked for years to keep Hogan away from her family, and inviting Donna over or striking up a friendship with her, would have given Hogan excuse to hang around. JMO

I thought that was strange, too. I didn’t think they’d be friends, but I just assumed that if she was Anna’s half sister, and Anna knew her, Virgie would also.
