    Great. Thank you for another imbedded video that doesn’t play. Very enjoyable episode.

    I used to work with John Waters and bartended the wake for Divine! It’s so sad Divine never saw the success of Hairspray!
    Fun times in Baltimore.

    Big as a house. And all ratted up like some teenage Jezebel!

      Divine was fun and an interesting person! He did a few performances at the Hippo in Baltimore too.
