I truly love fashion. Some of my best moments on stage were created by the costume designer....well them or the bottle of scotch I keep in my wooden leg. Clothes do make the woman and the man and I take advantage of every moment I get to spend with a designer. I am great friends with many of the greats....Pucci, Halston, Lillian Vernon......All special and talented in their particular styles. Pucci loves color, Courreges loves line, and Halston loves black dick. I personally am partial to Oscar de la Hoya. His cuts really flatter the female form and yet still evoke a feeling of shear boredom which is so important in the entertainment field.
Call me old fashion Dearest Reader but after sitting front row at many of the shows during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week here in NYC, I couldn't help thinking.....would anyone notice if I vomited into my Hermes' bag? Don't get me wrong. I love forward fashion as much as the next modern gal but let's face it, this is why retailers are selling sweaters 10 for a dollar. I wouldn't give you 10 cents for this crap. Wouldn't you love to be a part of the international set and arrive in Canne wearing a diaper, some hazard tape, a jump rope and blood splattered wedgies?Or maybe your man comes to pick you up for a night on the town wearing a jock strap, garters, a bathrobe and a 17th century neck tie.

Are Brad and Angie terrorists?
It seems they took their Shaada( conversion to islam) yesterday in Namibia is this true. I also heard Indian American astronaut Sunita Williams converted to Islam. Michael Jackson also plans to do it. Dave chappele also converted to Islam. Is it true 30,000 American women convert to Islam each year. Why is everyone converting to Islam ?
Please excuse my absence but I was doing my nails. I had no idea how much time had passed. One minute I was filing my pinky and the next thing I knew it, 7 months had gone by. My how time flies when there are toxic fumes in the air.
When last we spoke I was beginning a new show based on the life of Abraham Lincoln's first wife, Tunella entitled, "Wood Choppin' Woman". Understandably it opened to mixed reviews and closed after 1 performance (and that was for an audience of mentally retarded children). With musical numbers like, "Illinois Is My Kinda' Noise" and " Log Cabin Lullaby" it was destined to be a flop. My co-star, Jim J. Bullock as Honest Abe, brought a new light to Mr. Lincoln. Flouncy and foppish, his mincing around the stage and lisping delivery really sent home the message that Abe was all man. Also kudos went to Dr. Joyce Brothers magnificent libretto and the music of Shields and Yarnell. Costumes by the talented Mr. Phyllis and a set by PS 151 topped off the roster of talent. So sad that all of that hard work went down the shitter.
Well Reader, I must scoot off to rehearsal for my NEW show "Feelin' It!" A musical cavalcade of songs and dance numbers that are sure to wow the crowd as well as the critics. I'll keep you posted.
Thanks for being patient and I promise to forget about this in the morning.
Sincerely, Helen Lawson
