  1. It’s good to have you back, Mr D.
    This early Bettecstuff is amazing: I’ve never seen any of it before (being a mere slip of a boy he he) I didn’t realise how explosive her arrival was…

    1. Yes I’m really loving reliving this stuff…and i’m glad you’re seeing how she made her name….very influential. Bruce Vilanch wrote in to say how much he was enjoying the timeline and photos! xx
