A Dame Edna Coincidence!

Hello darlings!

We've discovered a spoooooky 'ole coincidence in the world of TV talk shows, Possums!

We all know, of course, that Dame Edna's seminal and ground-breaking TV series, "The Dame Edna Experience" was a life changing phenomenon, not only for her guests, but for a host of fans around the world.

No-one can match the caring and sharing of a Gigastar, but many little non-entities seem to be on television trying these days, including a certain BBC comedian who, it seems, can't even pronounce his own name. Call me old-fashioned, Possums, but he can't.

Of course I'm talking about Jonathan Ross. And here is where our little coincidence begins....

On Friday night, Jonathan's guests included Grace Jones and Tony Curtis.

But like most things, we discover, that of course, Dame Edna did it first! That's right, in her second series in 1989, Dame Edna had both Grace Jones and Tony Curtis on the same episode as well! Isn't that spooky?

So here, for our Gigastar enjoyment, is a clip from Edna's interview with the ever outrageous Grace. Enjoy, Possums! Enjoy!

Dame Edna is the new MAC Style Icon!

You little darlings!

I know that you're rejoicing at this very moment, aren't you Possums?

You've been looking into the mirror lately, thinking "I wish I could look more like my favourite international Gigastar and fashion icon, Dame Edna Everage!", haven't you? But sadly, at the moment, you see instead a rather plain, uninteresting non-entity staring back at you in that reflection, rather like a New Zealand bridesmaid. How yucky! (I mean that nicely!)

But now you can leave that tired old look behind you, darlings, because very, very soon you'll be able to buy your very own make-up from The Dame Edna Collection at MAC!!!!

Yes, that's right! Dame Edna is MAC's latest Beauty Icon, and these glitteringly gorgeous makeup products will be released to a grateful (and for the moment, relatively unattractive) public on 26th December, allowing them to reach heights in glamour and beauty they had previously thought entirely unattainable!!!

MAC's previous Beauty Icons have included Liza Minnelli,
Raquel Welsh, Catherine Deneuve, and Diana Ross. But this collection will obviously eclipse all the others!

The Dame Edna Collection will include such fabulous items as:
  • Kanga-Rouge, Gladiola, and Coral Polyp lipsticks
  • Splendid and Possum lip-glosses
  • Royal Tour, Dame's Desire, and Wisteria eye shadow trios
  • What a Dame! and Spectacle powder compacts
  • Asiatique and Varicose nail lacquers

Not only that, but you can click here and visit Spektra Beauty News to see the new Gigastar beauty charts and how to achieve the look of an internationally acclaimed fashion guru.

So mark the date on your calendar, Possums, and ask everyone to give you MAC gift certificates for Chrissie, because you're going want to rush out to MAC at the crack of dawn on 26th of December!

Just think, you'll finally be able to look attractive for New Year's Eve! Maybe you can find a "Kenny Everage Original" frock to go with your new look...? It's a dream to live for, darlings!

Dame Edna on Tour!

Rejoice, Possums!

Our beloved Gigastar/Housewife will soon be on the road again, spreading her Australian words of hope, wisdom and joy.

Yes, her much anticipated show "Dame Edna - My First Last Tour", is soon to be gracing theatres across the United States and Canada. Isn't that gorgeous?

In her own words:

“In this show you will see me up close and personal, Possums, perhaps for the last time! Close enough to see my beauty and personal enough to feel my love, and even, in some cases, my reluctant disapproval. I’m sharing and caring with those who need it the most — YOU, my adoring audiences.”

Of course, we know that Dame Edna's theatrical appearances aren't so much shows, as they are miracles. Very often after her shows, ushers find zimmer frames and crutches from little non-entities who entered the theatre sick and emerged from her presence several hours later fully restored to health. Isn't that spooky?

Dame Nature has bestowed upon Dame Edna a host of rare gifts. And we, her loyal Possums, can only be eternally grateful that she is selfless enough to share them with us all!

So run, Possums, run! If you are in the cities she is visiting, you can't miss this chance to be in the presence of greatness. Get your tickets, whatever the cost. Your lives will never be the same again!

The currently scheduled dates include:

Nov. 7-9 at the Paramount Theatre in Austin, TX
Nov. 14-15 at River Rock Casino in Vancouver, Canada
