Judy Garland & Liberace? Si! Si!





Many of you have written to inquire about my JUDY GARLAND rose bush....well here's the first bloom of the season. " A Star is Born"

You all know how I love Craigslist. I've bought, I've sold, I've hooked up (just kidding!) Sometimes for fun I check out the jobs available. In Los Angeles there are so many unbelievably crappy jobs with impossible requirements that pay nothing. Literally nothing. Oh you'll get a "tape" a "reel" "experience" the "chance to network" but cash? Nope! These are usually jobs in show business. Here's a fun one I fond this week! I love the irony that the professional organizer needs an organizer!:

When I lived in New York, the ex & I used to love to watch something called EL SHOW DE WALTER. Our Spanish was limited so the nearest thing we could deduce was that this was a sort of Mexican LIBERACE. So imagine my shock(some years later) when today I check out TMZ & there he (she?) is. WALTER! Looking not a day older & certainly not more subdued

Do You Know Who This Person Is?
Posted Apr 17th 2008 6:16PM by TMZ Staff
It's not Barbara Walters, designer Carolina Herrera or some Park Avenue society matron, but Spanish language television's resident flamboyant astrologer -- Walter Mercado! That's right, es un hombre! What's your, er, sign?!

The 76-year-old Puerto Rican sensation -- who is loved by every Hispanic grandmother from New York to L.A. for his horoscopes & flawess makeup -- is currently appearing on VH1's camptastic telenovela reality show, "¡Viva Hollywood!" Oh my stars!

Bobby Trendy, meet your long lost, lip-glossed Latin abuelita!
