Lea Delaria Announces Split From Fiancée In Hilarious Instagram
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Don’t cry for “Orange Is the New Black” star Lea DeLaria.  On Wednesday, the 58-year-old actress announced that she and her fiancée, Chelsea Fairless, have called it quits. The couple had originally planned to tie the knot Jan. 8, which is also DeLaria’s parents’ wedding anniversary, People magazine reported.  DeLaria, who also appeared on “Will & Grace” and “Californication,” confirmed the news in a Jan. 11 Instagram photo. The cheeky post is a take on David Gest and Liza Minnelli’s legendary 2002 nuptials, with DeLaria and Fairless’s faces superimposed on Gest and Minnelli’s bodies alongside Michael Jackson and Elizabeth Taylor. In the background, Roxette’s ‘80s hit, “It Must Have Been Love,” which was featured on the soundtrack to “Pretty Woman,” plays.  Apparently this was an eerily prophetic choice of engagement photo as our relationship has since gone the way of David and Liza, with one small exception: our split is amicable.

See You in the Music: Remembering Natalie Cole
Huffington Post - about 1 year
At Natalie Cole's 60th birthday party in New York City. Photo by Bob Krassner, used by permission. In the early morning hours of New Year's Day 2005, three years into our friendship, I enjoyed one of the most intimate and spontaneous performances ever given by Natalie Cole. It consisted of a single song sung barely above a whisper to an audience of one: me. We were in Aspen, Colorado at a swanky party at the peak of Ajax Mountain. Leaving together, we stepped outside, first into a blast of cold air and a windy swirl of snow, then into a gondola that would transport us down the side of the mountain and back to earth. The cozy pod lifted us off into the sky and soon our visibility was obscured by the feathery blanket of white. Moments later, the motor suddenly stopped.
