Now, I know how some of you feel about Okrah, and Miss Ginger is not really a fan of her show (or many other TV shows, for that matter!) but she's got a little project going on right now that Miss Ginger wanted to share.
She has an online audition happening where she is asking people who want to be a TV star to send her audition tapes, and she will make a star out of the best one. A very Okra-ish idea, if ever I heard one.
Miss Ginger had no idea that an acquaintance of hers had aspirations of being a star, but apparently Houston's own Fiona Dawson has decided to throw her hat in the ring and sent in an audition tape.
Anyone who's been gay for 10 minutes in Houston probably at least knows OF Fiona. While Miss Ginger runs in the unglamorous, yet satisfying world of indigent healthcare, Miss Fiona is queen of the glamorous Human Rights set. Miss Ginger raises money $1 a time at drag shows: Fiona raises it $1,000 at a time at black tie dinners. (I think Miss Ginger bought a ticket on the short bus!) But there is one thing we do have in common: our love for high heels and red lipstick! Fiona can rock a stiletto like no other lesbian I've ever seen! I'm pretty sure hers come from Neiman Marcus, whereas Miss G gets hers off the clearance rack at Macy's, but nonetheless, I've seen the girl RUN in 4 inch platforms! When it comes to fierce, Miss Fiona's got game!
So even though I don't know her very well, to meet Fiona is to love her, so I hope you'll take time to check out her audition and go to Oprah.com to vote!
