Clementine responds: What's the matter, ain't you got a vaahhs?

I'll bet it's white washed. Tucker was a menstrul performer who came to prominence singing in a style popularly known as "coon shouting". She was the last of the red hot mamas, but how many of us can name a few of the other ones?

Does that mean she only performed every 28 days?

R3. The jokes on the OP video are funny and bawdy, not whitewashed.

Barbra, Liza, Bette, Cher...they don't make 'em like the good ol' broads any longer. These women have talent and know how to entertain.

It's a whole different world now regarding who becomes famous in show business. Today's performers don't even come close to those listed above.
