Whatever Happened to Anita Bryant? A Good Christian Woman! The Dita Von Teese Connection!


*****
NO!
NO!
A Thousand Times
NO! NO! NO! 
This is NOT Anita Bryant!

*
This IS Dita Von Teese! 
*

~QUEEN of BURLESQUE~
 *
In fact, Dita is an "International" Queen
of Burlesque
with bases in London, Paris,
and New York!
*
DITA VON TEESE is a STAR!
By all definitions of the word,
DITA VON TEESE 
IS A REALLY BIG STAR!
*
But more about Dita later........
***************

Our subject of the moment is Anita Bryant.

Anita Bryant was on the entertainment radar
in the 1950's on variety daytime TV shows after
winning the Miss Oklahoma Beauty Contest,    

competing in the Miss America Pageant,
and later having a 'flash in the pan'
hit record-'Paper Roses'.
 *
*
But Anita is best remembered for her 
'PIE-in-the-FACE'
persona in the 1970's after her
'gay hate rhetoric' became a
national joke.
*
It seems Anita's Face never found a pie
it didn't like, in that now as 
an older woman in her 70's,
*
*
she has been referred to as 
"A Tank in Taffeta"
*
*
Anita has also been referred to as
"A GOOD CHRISTIAN WOMAN",
by Conservative Fundamentalist
Christians who recollect her
'pie-in-the-face' era as persecution
for being a disciple of Christ,
spreading HIS word. 
*
*
So where is Anita now?
Whatever happened to her? 
*
We are told Anita lives in Florida with her
pies and surfaces from time to time at
religious tent revivals.  
*
And where's the 'Anita-Dita' Connection?
*
*
Well, there isn't any that we can see.
We simply appreciate the contrast of
DITA VON TEESE
unabashed full out first class talent without
political drama to
ANITA BRYANT'S
no-talent distorted celebrity.
