A Great Big Diva!: Never too late to make that dream happen!

17th October 2017 | 0 Comments

I am finally fulfilling a dream I’ve had for decades: writing & performing my own one woman show. It will be funny (of course) and it’s a musical but I will also share a couple moments of heartache as well. I am collaborating with a monstrously talented writer in L.A. named Andrew Barrett and it’s [...]


The Solo Show. Nothing in life worth having comes easy.

10th October 2017 | 0 Comments

Planning for this one woman show is a somewhat daunting experience. But, it beats me talking about it for decades and doing nothing to make it happen. Dreams remain dreams because making the reality happen is so much harder! But it’s worth it. There are so many elements to prepare before we even get down [...]


Random Thoughts from A GREAT BIG DIVA

Random Thoughts from A GREAT BIG DIVA: It’s so scary to produce an original piece of work. People have asked me: “Why are you doing this? (My one woman show)” I have only one answer: Because I have to. I am compelled to do this work. I have tried to ignore it for years – [...]


Choose Love. Choose Hope.

We must not let the horrors of humanity ruin us. There is so much negativity buzzing around us, so much hate and lack of empathy – yet there is more than a small bit of good still out there. We create it every time we show empathy for others. There is no sense in what [...]


Writing My Solo Show.

22nd September 2017 | 2 Comments

Okay, Okay. There has been lots of great stuff happening. I am skipping that list to go to the main event: I am actually working (under a deadline) on my musical AKA my one-woman show. After decades of talking about it, I am actively doing it. For real, for real. My friend the acclaimed solo [...]


I Survived a Weekend of Performing in 90+ Degree Heat!

7th July 2017 | 0 Comments

I was worried. Real worried. But I prepared. I went to the gym, worked out with my wonderful friend and fitness trainer Jeremy, who was mindful of what I was facing. I think he was a bit concerned too – and wth good reason. I am a 55 year old obese woman with two bum [...]


Baby, it’s hot out there!

How does one dress to perform outdoors in 90+ degree temperatures? Make-up, eyelashes, feathers, girdles …I don’t think so! Hydration is key, and nutrition (protein) – Once, I sang in the heat on an empty stomach … bad move.


Give In to Hope and Love.

23rd May 2017 | 0 Comments

I am so inspired and moved by people who get past the horrible headlines and just continue their work of helping others. It’s an honorable calling. The mess that we witness every day makes some of us piss and moan but it also motivates us all to care. It is easy to criticize and berate [...]


The Great Betrayal. My Right Knee (formerly known as My Good Knee)

My knee blew out and I was stranded in the cinema screaming “Help! Help Me!” for 40 minutes.


Photo Session (the first in ten years)

7th February 2017 | 0 Comments

Had a photo shoot today with the AMAZING John Gress. I was so nervous. What to bring? What to wear? Will I have enough energy to come across on film? Will I look like crap? But John is such a dear and so patient and enthusiastic- all was well. And I had a blast. Thanks [...]
