Dame Edna in SAGA Magazine!

Hello Possums!

As the excitement grows prior to Dame Edna's much anticipated return to the British stage, her fans around the country are desperate to hear more from their favourite Gigastar. As she says herself, "Because of the awful weather...(my British audiences) have always needed cheering up, and I'm in the 'cheering up' business, big time." Hallelujah!

So it is with a joyous heart that readers of SAGA magazine will be picking up their August issue, as a resplendent Dame Edna graces the cover, and is interviewed about her life and upcoming tour!

Check it out here!

In the article, Dame Edna discusses her tour of "The Last Night of the Poms" (gorgeous!), her relationship with Sir Les (a nightmare!), and sex (overrated!), as well as a sharing her beauty tips and life lessons.

Here is a little sneak peak:

Have you ever experienced age discrimination?
I have never experienced age discrimination, though my mother has. She is very, very old, a terrible handful, and I discriminate against her every time I see her.

This is the first time for 28 years that you and Sir Les Patterson have shared a stage. Did you fall out?
I have never fallen "in" with Les Patterson. He is coarse and I am refined. When you come to this wonderful show, you will notice that we are separated by an intermission so that I never have to meet him backstage. But I must admit, he tells the story of Peter and the Shark rather charmingly - if he is sober. It's a famous Australian fairytale. Peter and the Wolf copied it.

What is the main lesson life has so far taught you?
That laughter is the greatest healer of all.

Amen to that!

So hurry out and buy your copy of SAGA magazine today, Possums! If there ever was an example of fabulous after 50, it's got to be our glittering gigastar Edna!!!
