Sassy Magazine 1993

My buddy, Maureen Fitzgerald found this site which pays homage to the '90's teen magazine "Sassy". I've always loved this outfit designed by Zaldy (of course). You can't tell from this photo, but Mathu styled a huge white afro with Pocahantas braids framing my face. BRILL.


"Boots" my favorite Border Collie

I've been on Georges' ranch in Wyoming since Tuesday. I love it - been doing some writing and relaxing. Also reviewing audition reels for season 3 of RDR. Very tedious process - most applicants show their costumes on hangers rather than model them (boring) and 95% have fashioned their persona after Lady Gaga. Only 1 in 25 seem to have the Charisma, Uniqueness, Nerve & Talent needed to be cast. If you think you've got what it takes, go onto the casting site and apply.

Sunset People

I spent the night of RDR's Grand Finale at Giorgio Moroder's 70th B'day party at Spago. I've known him since '94 when he produced a duet with Elton John and I.

The party was amazing! People flew in from around the world to be there. All the members of his legendary hit making music machine where there: Pete Belotte, Harold Faltermeyer, Keith Forsey and of course Donna Summer.

At one point during the testimonials, Donna nudged me to get up and say something, but I felt too shy to follow such heavy hitters as Jerry Bruckheimer and Wolfgang Puck, who revealed that Giorgio was responsible for giving the restaurant it's famous name.

After dinner, Randy Barbato, myself and E.G. Daily got the party going by being the first ones on the dance floor. Chris Cox spun the classic Moroder hits that shaped and influenced music as we know it today. Also in attendance: Jody den Broeder, Susan Munao, Joe Esposito, Terry Nunn, Bruce Roberts and Thomas Gottschalk.

Blossom Butterworth 2010

Twenty years ago, a skit I remembered only as "Blossom Butterworth" from The Carol Burnett Show became a massive obsession with the party clique that Lahoma, Lady Bunny and I would drag back to our pad at 5 Ninth Ave after the club closed. Still buzzing, we would scream and howl, watching it on repeat until the sun came beaming through the second story window. This ritual went on for many, many months.

The Carol Burnett Show had been off the air for ten years by that point, but was still a major reference source for everyone in our group of friends... and clearly still is today, as you'll recognize a line in this skit that I use on every episode of Drag Race.

Yesterday, I described the skit to Brett Clement and he did the research and found it (it's actually called "PTA Show"). I can't tell you how happy seeing it again has made me. Just wait tell I show Bunny and Lahoma. GOD BLESS YOUTUBE and Brett and Carol Burnett.
