The One Where Mink Stole Is Your Secret Santa Comments (0)

Mink StoleMink is offended that some people still think she's a drag queen. “I've been nude on screen! Where would I put it?”

I needed a little Christmas right that very minute, so I grabbed my theater husband and hit OMG! It's Christmas!—it's a one-woman show dedicated to giving in to the holidays, and it stars John Waters regular Mink Stole.

Matthew-Rettenmund-Mink-StoleStole, who looks great (she's 67 going on 45) sang a quirky selection of Christmas tunes, accompanied by a game band that included a very youthful Dylan Kaminkow, whose upright bass playing was downright adorable to watch as well as being ear candy.

She really had the crowd going with her erratic story-telling, which veered from alarmingly mainstream (Mink Stole has a crush on the Property Brothers???) to cackle-inducingly morbid (her take on “The Little Match Girl” was a scream) to cheerfully sacrilegious (to address any shock over her declaration that there is no God, she pointed out she couldn't have given Divine a fake handy with a rosary if she'd been a believer).

Mink was warm and fuzzy afterward, too. A real dream to meet a woman who lists Pink Flamingos (1974), Desperate Living (1977) and (the original, good) Hairspray (1988) on her résumé.

There She Was: Miss America 1959, Actress, Singer & Philanthropist Mary Ann Mobley Dies Comments (0)

Mary-Ann-MobleyFebruary 17, 1937 (or 1939)—December 9, 2014

Former Miss America Mary Ann Mobley has died of breast cancer at 75 or 77 (depending on source). Mobley was Miss America 1959 and became one of the contest's only household-name winners, singing on Broadway and making  several popular films, including two with Elvis Presley. She was 1965's Most Promising Newcomer at the Golden Globes. 

Outside of showbiz, Mobley was known for her efforts to raise money for charities related to poverty and hunger. Mobley was married for 45 years to TV host Gary Collins, from whom she was briefly separated. Collins died in 2012 at 74.

Pardon Me For Living Well Comments (0)

Mark-Wahlberg-mark-wahlberg-14128264-1024-768

I think Mark Wahlberg has brass balls to request that he get a pardon for crimes he committed in the late '80s in Boston, incidents that would be classified as hate crimes today. For one thing, he was lightly punished at the time—why expunge the only thing remaining, his record? For another, do you seriously think average citizens are routinely allowed to receive pardons for serious crimes they committed as teenagers? His argument seems to be: I'm a rich, famous, successful person now, so I deserve this. I say he doesn't. You?
