Ashley/Auntie

post_separationIn an unexpected bonus round of “This Diva Looks Like That Diva,” conspiracy theorists will surely puzzle over the eerily similar headshots of these two New York Post columnists.  

Ashley Dupre (aka Spitzer’s Muse) is hoping “sex sells” as she launches her new relationship advice column in the Post.  She competes for readers’ attention against our own James Jorden, well-known as a “friend” of this site. Who will be the bigger reader draw? Stay tuned!

If only Aunt Cieca could get her own relationship column in the Post! Then she could finally respond to some of Angie and Roberto’s letters.

    Camille, do you know something we don’t?

    I personally like the matchymatchy, but then that whole outfit is something I wore back in the 80s when I was still doing drag. Is she in mourning? it needs some color. It needs a diamond girdle, perhaps a diamond trimmed Turandot head dress. oops, I already know a diva who wears that. So it needs a little color.

      SALVE SIGNOR SANFORD!

      Heavens no, I am not privy to private informations regarding our Beloved Doyenne. Just me and my preternatural intuition being jumpy about JJ’s defection and the impact it may or may not have on La Cieca, that’s all. While I am most glad that La Cieca has gotten JJ off her swooning couch at last and he’s got a real job, I just don’t want the giddy glee that is P.B. to ever end, ergo my worrisome nature is going into overdrive about it.
      Dismiss worrisome thoughts as they give wrinkles.

      Well, fellows, I must concede you all have a point about Mme. RF. Still, I like the gloves, but the overall effect is Jessica Rabbit.

      She should take a page from Mme. Vera’s book, a true diva SHE, and learn what Becomes A Legend Most….

    Squirrel -- how about those gelide manine? Are they warmed up yet?? You’ve got many more an acorn to gather this winter so get Mrs. Squirrel to knit you or gift you a pair.

    You take umbrage at my mention of ‘JJ’s defection’, so a clarification is in order: I mean to say only that La Cieca no longer has him around as her minion, totally at her beck and call, to tie her shoelaces, froth her cafe au lait, and give backrubs and do all that nasty proofreading of copy. He’s still around, of course, but he has declared his independence in going out and establishing himself as a scribe, with his own photo and byline, so, the equation has somewhat been altered.

    That’s what I mean.

    Do you receive the Soundart Foundation, Inc., events calendar? I recommend it.

    Now, it’s back to Beethoven, my Immortal Beloved, in preparation for his 239th birthday celebration, commencing in about twelve more hours.

    p.s. -- how did that conference with Gelb go regarding the implementation of the Hugenuts into the MET calendar? We, the humble audience of Parterre, are counting on you.
