Berley had a stroke a couple years ago. When he woke up, gone was his Southern accent and in it’s place was a French accent.
I’m not kidding.
It was really weird hearing him speak! He still said his Southern slang, just with a French accent he couldn’t control.
So Thursday night on ABC, 10 pm EST, there is scheduled a short segment on him and this “foreign accent syndrome”. He’s fully recovered now. Had dinner with him last time I was back in Simpsonville. He’s still a great guy, just sounds like himself again!
Tune in if you can.
BTW, the brass group he’s a part of at church is lead by my father and my brother-in-law is also in the group.
