Autograph Show Legends Captured By Angelo Pitillo
This week's column is an explosive jaunt to a New Jersey autograph show (Kevin Clement's Chiller Theatre), where you could buy signed photos of your favorite cult stars or simply ogle them from a safe distance.
Udo Kier (from Warhol's Frankenstein and Dracula) was so not a monster.
Angelo Pitillo went up in their faces and captured the magique.
My second favorite Monkee Peter Tork is now my fave. He's funny and cute and has a blues CD. Nell Campbell went from Rocky Horror to club queen and beyond, while always being faithful to that wonderful hairdo. Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster) and I caught up as Yvonne DeCarlo seemed to be saying "I'm still here." Silver fox Barry Bostwick is a Rocky Horror legend, but naturally, we talked Scruples. Oliver's Mark Lester confirmed to me that he gave Michael Jackson sperm. "Where is glove?" I told Oliver's Shani Wallis I'm still furious that director Carol Reed cut away from her last note of "As Long As He Needs Me" for a long shot. She lit up and said, "That's what my husband says! I guess it was considered artistic." Diff'rent Strokes' Todd Bridges is clean and sober. And hot. Wayne's World's Tia Carrere is still schwing-ing. Debbie Gibson will always be electric youth to me. Love huh. If Lorenzo Lamas was a porn star, I'd watch way more porn. Dennis the Menace's Jay North told me he really wanted to be a baseball player, but admitted that at 61, it probably won't happen. The Kardashians have nothing on this all-American family. Wolf!
