It's a sumptuous shot of me in a theme ensemble for a Slaves of New York party in the 1980s. And it's estimated at $4000 to $6000!

Paper magazine has the scoop on the auction. If you really love the '80s, start your bidding.

Theatrical rocker Kenyon Phillips asked me to guest star at his Joe's Pub show last Saturday, and I was thrilled--even after learning I was going to play his mother.

But what to wear as a Santa Barbara socialite? I picked through my things and came up with the above eye-popping ensemble.

If I ever write one, that is.

I would take a page, as it were, from constantly debased '50s-starlet-turned-junkie-and-prostie Barbara Payton and call it:

Forgive me, Jenny Craig, I have sinned.

I was scheduled to go to three events last night, but whipped up a quickie dinner at home beforehand because we all know the main rule of "disco dinners": Eat first.

But it turned out all the events had plentiful food.

An NJGLA "Headlines and Headliners" gala was filled with LGBT media notables plus BLT sandwiches piled on high. (Not really. I just thought the sound of that made sense with all the other acronyms. But they did have tons of food. Trust me. Belch.)

Look who's Tolkien!
With the Oscars behind us, let me remind you of Julia Minamata's illustrations which inserted me into two of the nominated films--The Hobbit and Hitchcock--plus one about international current events.

Yes, they were from the year-end issue, but I need some attention right now, so I'm finally sharing them in a big way.

My dad was not the most demonstrative person in the world.

He was pretty low key and sparing in his emotions--always laid back and never loud.

So I always had my doubts: Is he proud of me? Does he approve of me and what I've been doing at all? Or is he maybe a little bit ashamed and hiding his feelings?

Well, guess what I just found in the house?

Jason Russo of HeyMrJason Photography was at my Disco Extravaganza on Sunday and captured extraordinary moments like photographer Patrick McMullan reacting to topless Holly Van Voast as I wrapped up a song with arms up, disco diva style.

There's a lot of flaunting, exulting, and reacting going on in that one photo.
