The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

COOL 70'S CHICK: DIVINE



I have a deep appreciation for people who live life to the fullest and without apology. Divine lived her life in such manner. Divine was born Harris Glenn Milstead in 1945 in a suburb of Baltimore, Maryland. Divine became the muse of filmmaker John Waters and starred in some of the most controversial and damn funny movies of the 70's. Divine's most popular movies are Pink Flamingos, Polyester, and Female Trouble. Divine even got to play dual roles in some films as both a man and a woman, too cool! She was also able to make her mark in the music world by recording several popular disco tracks. Divine made several film and TV appearances throughout the 80's but her most memorable role in the 80's was Edna Turnblad, the mother of teen heroine Tracy Turnblad in John Water's cult classic Hairspray. Hairspray has since been turned into a successful Broadway play and is being made into a big-budget Hollywood film with John Travolta filling Divine's shoes. In 1988, Divine was slated to take a major recurring role on Fox's hit TV show Married With Children as Uncle Otto when he sadly passed away of a heart attack in his sleep at age 43. Rest in peace Divine.
