Happy New Year from me, Bea Benederet

Not my usual high-profile party this year. Just me, Kaye Ballard, Mary Wickes, Shirley Booth and a select few others, sitting around shootin' the shit with half a dozen cases of Schlitz and a gross of deviled eggs.

Marjorie Main is at the piano (not singing, thank god) and Agnes Moorehead has been telling scathing stories about Loretta Young. Fun night.

Kathleen Freeman says to say Happy New Year to all the eldergays...

Has Miss Barbara Stanwyck arrived?

by Anonymousreply 112/31/2012

Stanwyck arrived at 5:30, and within 10 minutes had locked herself in the master bath with the coral pink princess phone. She won't come out or say who she's talking to.

Oh, shit -- my prescriptions are in there.

Did Hepburn make the deviled eggs?

by Anonymousreply 512/31/2012

And of course, as usual, Judy didn't show. That really pissed me off because she was supposed to bring the picked sausages. And then when Lucille found out Judy wasn't coming, all of the sudden she had a "wig tape emergency" and couldn't make it. But what Lucille didn't know was that Irma Kusely was sitting right next to me when she called to cancel, so I know for a fact that she made up that story.

Nobody under 40 knows who Bea Bernadaret was, nor do they care because the 1950s and 1960s were decades before their birth and considered to be like silent movie times to the elder gays in comparison. All the 80s and 90s crowd cares about is dick and dope. They don't like or watch black & white shows of yesteryear. They don't know much about history or old movies or old TV shows.

My annual NYE party is just 24 hours away and the preparations have run me BREATHLESS. It hasn't helped that Aggie Moorehead showed up a day early, drunk and tear-stained, mourning her, uh, friend, Debbie. So not only do I have dozens of jars of pickled eggs to decant and medicine cabinets to clear out, but I'm suicide watch with Endora. I sent a car for Rose Marie -- I need backup.

Calgon, take me away!
