TUPPERWARE QUEEN COMES OUT


Good evening dear readers, it's the Mistress here. Now regular readers of the blog will know that I have loverd and adored Aunt Barbara,  Long Island’s Tupperware queen, who was selling hundreds of thousands of dollars’ worth of kitchenware and earning herself a six-figure salary, along with over 10 years of hilarious videos on You Tube , which I featured some right here.... some of you even got her birthday message from me here.  For over a decade in New York, she hosted parties and ran her business as Aunt Barbara, a drag queen whose brash attitude, libation soaked personality, snappy accent, and sassy comebacks were part of her act.  Aunt Barbara's creator, Bobbi was living as a man at the time, and portraying Aunt Barbara allowed her to dress up in 1960s-era dresses and a black bob wig to host her Tupperware parties, to the delight of her clients.
Women and gay men no matter who they are, seem to love Aunt Barbara — even the more conservative, Trump-supporting women among the crowd. But she didn’t want to just act like her female character; she said that from a very young age, she knew she was a woman. Bobbi held it inside through his teenage years into his 20s, and finally, at one point when he thought his parents could not figure him out, his mother sat down with him, and she said, ‘We know that you’re gay. We know that you’re homosexual," But what Bobbi thought was that is half the story. It’s half the story because he was attracted to men and he was biologically and physically a male, but intuitively, mentally, organically, Bobbi was a female. When Bobbi came out as a trans woman on April 1, 2016, she said, she was surprised by how some of her clients suddenly treated her. Bobbi, now Jennifer considered Aunt Barbara just a character of who she is.  Jennifer says she  guessed she thought that they accepted Aunt Barbara, why wouldn’t they accept her? After all she was just the person who’s behind Aunt Barbara. But after her transition, people began canceling their Tupperware parties, she said, and her business suffered big time.  Just goes to show how far we have to go with our Trans folks yet.  I say congrats to her and wish her well on her endeavors.
This is Jennifer's story. With her outlook, I know she will forge a wonderful new life.

  2. She seems like such a nice person, what happened to her life is sad. I don't understand , why people stopped having Tupperware parties with her just because she is a woman.
    I sure would have loved to have gone to one. She seems like she'd be a blast. That video turned on the water works for me.

  7. "What TRUE self? He was born a MALE, love who GOD created you to be. The devil is confusing you...he is so cunning & daring that he has whole world believe that this is ok, and its not...the devil knows it. He just trying to get people to spit in GOD's face... LORD have mercy upon this mans soul, and you for spreading this act. GOD created this man, he's still breathing so he needs to come to JESUS for repentence and recieve eternal life .

    1. Marlene, Your colorful point of view and speaking in tongues started off with a bang, but your act unfortunately failed to impress us.

      I'm sorry my dear, but you are up for elimination.

    2. go fuck yourself, marlene (if that is your TRUE name)!

    3. Marlene, what are you doing setting foot, I mean nose, in this den of debauchery (I've been to the super bowl party) you big ass hypocrite? You don't come into someone else's home and poop all over the place! Then again, maybe YOU do. Hateful cows should stay in their own pastures.
      I'm sorry, Maddie. I usually try to be civil, but this kind of thing can be easily avoided by just staying away from the blog. AARRGGHHH!

    4. Miss Moorecock was,suppose to be on door duty. That's alright Deedles, after a good view of things around here, I'm betting she won't be back. I hardly ever get trolls....should I count myself as lucky???

    5. You certainly can, Maddie. She's lucky she hasn't wandered onto some of your more colorful posts. The Super Bowl party alone would've given her a massive coronary! I still haven't recovered from that good time!

  8. It's 2018...... and time to move on and worry about what's really important, and not somebody's personal business! Kudo's to Jennifer for coming out and living her life Aunt Barbara or not, I still find her very funny and an inspiration.

  11. Ok.....which one of you bitches left the back door open??? See what happens? Strangers come in, and get in the special candy dish and talk funny.

  12. I habe always loved Aunt Barbara, had no idea that she went through this. You never would have known the torture by watching his video, but good on her.

    NOW WE MUST KEEP THE DOOR LOCKED!!!!! How rude 🖕

  13. So happy for her and her true self. Hope she lands on her feet again professionally. A whole new world is open to her.

  14. I have long adored Aunt Barabara to. I had no idea Bobbi transitioned, and I say good for her. I know some queens frown on trans doing drag, but to me it seems to be a neutral stepping stone and a good part of the process to assist in the whole process.

  15. Strong people create a special place in the world. She must be strong, it takes real strength to be who you really are in this world. I have never been a tupperware party, sounds like fun!

  16. Tupperware is dangerous. It spreads like a virus and then suddenly disappears without warning.

    1. Thank you, Bob! I thought I was the only one who noticed this happening. I have a lot of lidless canisters. Maybe the tops went off to live with the missing single socks.

    2. It's not a good thing when there are no bottoms for the tops!!!

  17. It just reconfirms that the straight community can accept drag - because they view it as strictly entertainment. However, don't move it into the realm of reality.
    But, Tupperware...I still have some of the stuff I bought in the 70s - and recently purchased 2 new pitchers to brew my tea. :-) If I were in the area, I'd buy from Aunt Barbara, or Jennifer.

    1. Sorry, meant to say her real name, Jennifer.

      Brave woman, and she is just that, a woman.

  20. I could go into some spiel, but lets face it. People can be dicks. But it also reminds us that as long as gay guys poke fun of themselves, for the entertainment of others, that's safe for some straight people. But when they stand up and demand to counted, well then, its no longer fun and games - it means "you're taking the fun out of it for me." Well, alright you straight cunts. fuck you all.
