This is the doll/cushion that Bette and Graham Norton talked about that got edited out on the show. I’m putting this up by request. The reason my stuff came to be on the show was that I was contacted by the show’s producer who knew about my website, Bootleg Betty. He asked if I had any kind of “off the wall” things that I had collected over the years and I named a few things. He was interested in this doll, the Delores doll, a snow globe, a “The Rose” beach blanket, a cigarette case, and a homemade decoupage thingie I had. I know the show and knew they would be making fun of stuff, so he asked if I could send all of it. Unfortunately I had won a contest to go the Burlesque premiere and after-party and was in L.A. and couldn’t do it, so Barry put everything together and sent it all.
There was no controversy on the show about it, just here online. Some fan got extremely angry or something and didn’t know the story…not that it would have made any difference to her/him. Anyway, they just wrote extremely ugly things about me which is their right. I can’t be loved by everyone. But they obviously aren’t quite right in the head. One comment would suffice, but when you write about 5-10 consecutive ones you have a problem. Here’s the link to the comments section: Click Here
Anyway, that’s my story! BTW…I don’t know if they really said the doll stank or not…LOL But I gave it a good whiff all over and it has no smell to it, so I don’t know what the heck was going on….it’s been hanging on a wall forever and nobody smokes here. But it is a silly little thing, I’ll guarantee you that, but I love it anyway….
Love, Mister D
