GRANDE DAME

Meet Juicy Liu..a mess in a dress..a loveable idiot....dances like your mom. Miss Juicy Liu is becoming a well known queen in the Big Apple currently with her entertaining show Freshly Squeezed. For one of our Asian sisters,  she sure can work a myriad of different style and looks and her show never disappoints, but then again she was brought up the right way by her drag mother Miz Cracker. She is also known for her infamous Chinese take- out box dress. I fell in love with her when I saw her routine, Miss Saigon in Three Minutes. Priceless.  Juicy is also always around to lend a hand when it comes to the LGBTQ community and raising awareness and funds. By day, she works in PR for a luxury brands, that was suppose to be a temp job for one day, but now 10 years later......originally hailing from LA, she bore of the West Coast and moved to  NYC  and enrolled in NYU for theater. Juicy is seen all over New York and a weekly show at Industry.

LOST IN SPACE


Dear readers, the Mistress is here with a PSA. 

Fellow blogger and interwebs friend , Bob, from over at I Should Be Laughing, shared some bad news on Monday. He and his hubby's cat, Consuelo Roca Jones, whom I have never met, but I suspect, she too, is the Mistress of the estate,  decided she was going to do a disappearing act, and somehow got out of the house, and shimmied under the fence, and has not been seen since the weekend.  I always thought cats went out to the kitty bar at night and came back in the AM, so if she did she may have met a tom cat and is having a hellva of a good time, but I digress. Both her humans owners are very sad by her escape. I know it will be a long shot, but if any of my readers in South Carolina are reading,  or for so odd reason, someone from that area stumbles in here and recognizes dear Consuelo from her picture, her owners miss her dearly, and would love to be reunited with her. You can head over to Bob's  on this link and leave a comment with any info, should anyone find her, or may have seen her.  And if your reading Consuelo, your good times have rolled tootes, you may want to head home . I hear Ozzo, yes Consuelo, a dog, is taking your sleeping spot, eating your food portions, and seizing your cat toys!!!! I will be keeping a link to Bob's blog in my sidebar also. Just click on the picture for fast transport.

This has been a Casa du Borghese PSA.

ONE WORD...

Get that coffee. If you're not shaking you need another cup!!!Here here!!!!

 After four days off it's back to the grind. A lovely weekend was enjoyed, and a blast with friends not seen for some time. Saturday found us out and about, where I danced my ass off and let off some steam. One song was played by Kelly Osbourne. I had forget how much I enjoyed her One Word. And you know me, being very visual, I love the feel of this video and Kelly looks amazing. And it's needed to help me shimmy to get moving.

One word breaks a golden silence
Silence tells me all I need to know
One word, one word
Tells me everything I need to know. Indeed.
And this gem did it's job. I bet your foot is tapping.
Happy Monday!

ALL IN BLACK, FRIDAY

Ready for Black Friday?!?!?!

 'What-black-day?' -for those who live across the pond or in a normal county, it's a day here that a majority of people go nuts and run amuck for their Christmas needs and hopefully find them on special price, or they show just plain greed by buying things they don't need. I myself never par take in the madness and often don't even work?!?!?! WHAT?!? Tis true. Even though our store doesn't get crazy, we can't get much done on the floor, so we just take a three day weekend. Besides that, I most times shop local small business when I can. Hope most of you had a lovely Thanksgiving feast?! My family had a good reunion no fighting, griping or not getting along . No... we all drink! I was going to post some Thanksgiving photos, but simply can't handle another "Turkey/Thanksgiving' post at the moment~ my waistline needs a break from the 'thirds I had!!! I told you my aunt was a good cook! No more turkey for now at least. Anywayyy...In honor of the Black Friday, here is one of my favorite women. Carmen Dell'Orefice...a stunning woman who still models and did I mention she is 88!!!! Carmen was a huge supermodel, before supermodel was coined. Just a beautiful woman..strong, vibrant and not afraid to have some fun.
Meanwhile, the Mistress will be off til Tuesday off visiting the ancestral home, and then some friends I haven't seen in an age. I'll return next week after a short break..so have a lovely weekend!!!

What will you be doing this Black Friday?

GIVING THANKS

While we live in very unusual times right now with our current state of things... I still enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday. My favorite of the year, and it did, and still does have fond memories for me. The crispness of the autumn air, the seasonal decorations, watching of the Thanksgiving parade in Philly, and the wonderful smells that would radiant the home from my father preparing our huge feast of the incoming family. I would often sneak little taste of the turkey and stuffing. My father used a family recipe for his stuffing, made with onion, sage and thyme. I can still smell it to this day if I think about.  Then most of the day would be spent lounging about. While my father and grandmother are passed on, I will always be thankful for them and my memories. Now most of this still rings true, except now either my aunt or sister host the day. My aunt especially is a very good cook, her role model being that of Julia Child, and for that I am thankful. And even in this current state we're in, I am happy for my little Buster, my little abode, my good friends far and wide, my family, and my good health , and for all of you, who stop in many times daily. And for all these things, I AM TRULY GRATEFUL!!!
I hope you all have a Lovely Thanksgiving!

GRANDE DAME


I don't know how many of you were watching RuPaul's Drag Race UK....but Divina De Campo, or as I call her the  big DDC,  nearly won the season...coming in runner up!!! I thought for sure she would have this. I mean her runways and creations were spectacular. But we'll take runner up. I by far enjoyed the UK version...so much more campy and less fishy.

Divina De Campo started drag in 2005, where she hails from Brighthouse, Westchester, who has slowly built a loyal fanbase. I adore Divina's style...nothing like old school drag, with a huge pinch of glamour,huge lashes and a approximate painted face!!! Her style reminded me of my own.  Her drag name is Italian for Divine, who is an inspiration for her. She regularly performs at Kiki in Manchester's Gay Village.  In January 2016, De Campo appeared on The Voice, auditioning with the song "Poor Wandering One" from The Pirates of Penzance. One of the judges being her idol Boy George was on that season  Despite none of the judges turning their chairs for her, George later expressed regret for not picking her. In December 2016, De Campo starred in The Ruby Slippers, a play that explores issues of identity and prejudice in the LGBT community.  In 2017, De Campo was a part of a campaign to support the George House Trust, a charity supporting people living with HIV. De Campo hosted Superbia's Drag Queen Story Time, in which she read stories to young children. Then in August 2019, De Campo was announced as one of the 10 queens to be competing in the first series of RuPaul's Drag Race UK, where Divina won four challenges and finished as the first runner-up.  Divina De Campo is the stage name of Owen Farrow, and is known for his high soprano and 4-octave range, When not touring, recording or filming, Divina enjoys a quiet life with his husband.
Here's a clip preview of her upcoming song. I think we know from this season who will be going on to bigger things. I only hope she does some US appearances.

And her amazing Voice appearance.
