Div'Icon (Diva Icon) Of the Month

Eartha Kitt

She was one of a kind. A classy lady with lots of sex appeal. She was the one and only Eartha Kitt. Born in 1927, her career spanned more than 60 years. She performed with  the Katherine Durham Dance company before she branched out on her own as a solo entertainer. Her sultry voice and her command of the french language made every song she sang a 4 or 5 minute seduction. Her rendition of "Santa Baby"  remains a favorite holiday classic. Orson Wells called her the most exciting woman he had ever seen. She set the tone for sexiness and I am sure showed Julie Newmar the way it was done as catwoman on the cult classic 1960's t.v. show Batman.  In her convictions, she was fearless;  in 1968 at a White House luncheon when questioned by Lady Bird Johnson about the Vietnam War, her response was, "You send the best of this country off to be shot and maimed. No wonder the kids rebel and take pot." her bold response cost her dearly, she was blackballed as an entertainer in the United States for many years and had to concentrate her efforts on performing in Europe and Asia to keep her career alive which she was successfully able to do. Eventually she was able to resume her career in the United States and continued to perform here and abroad for the rest of her life.  Sadly we lost Ms Kitt to colon cancer on December 25, 2008. She was classy, outspoken, outstanding and she is my Div'Icon of the month! 

Mr Hubba Hubba Of the Month

Errol Flynn

In his lifetime, Errol Flynn received no recognition from his peers at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. He never attended a ceremony in his honor and was not nominated. Could be that his screen persona, the swashbuckler, the rake, stuck to him too well? Yet in his career he defined a male archetype and forever set his mark on movie maleness, in fact, created a constellation of manly virtues that even today is the stuff of dreams. It's time to bring the black sheep home. Long regarded as the prodigal son of Hollywood, with his real-life adventures, scrapes and insubordination, Errol Flynn lived every man's dream of a full life and found himself typecast.

-Rory Flynn, Daughter of Errol Flynn

Errol Flynn was born in Australia in 1909, he began his acting career in the 1930's. After his breakout role in Captain Blood in 1935, he found himself typecast as he Swashbuckling hero and his role in The Adventures of Robin Hood, became his most famous role. Shortly after the United States entered WWII, Errol became an American Citizen and wanted to enlist in the military to serve his newly adopted country, but a heart condition and other health problems rendered him ineligible. Trying to keep his health condition from becoming public knowledge, the studio did nothing to defend him from the harsh criticism of the public who thought he was trying to shirk his duty to enlist and serve his country. Although he continued to act,by the 1950's Errol's heavy drinking problem coupled with the addiction to the medications he had to take to treat his health problems, Errol rapidly aged as his health deteriorated; by the end of the decade, we lost this wonderful actor who never really received the honor and respect for his talent that he rightfully deserved. He was dashing, handsome, and all too human as we all are and  he is my Hubba Hubba of  the month.
