GIVE A PHONE CALL FROM TRINA!

Ms. Parks is now one of the celebrities on the Hollywood is Calling website. As she explains it:

"The website, HollywoodIsCalling.com, is where anyone can make an appointment to speak directly to me. When a 'fan' calls, the representatives book a time that I will phone the 'fan.' Then Hollywood is Calling e-mails me with the information."

Sounds like a great gift . . . or gift for oneself!
